Good location, but lacks a good gym”

I stayed at this hotel as I had an early flight and while there is nothing wrong with this hotel there is also nothing really special about this hotel except for the location. I found the price to be rather expensive for what the hotel actual offered. This was mainly because I wa expecting a decent gym and the gym was very small without any decent equipment. The staff in the hotel were good and I can't fault them and the hotel was spacious and clean. Overall I feel this hotel was good but expensive for what it offered.

Fantastic last night after a week in London”

Very close to Gatwick Airport, nice rooms

Me and my girlfriend stayed one night at Sofitel London Gatwick after a visit to London. Our plane was due early in the morning so we decided to book a hotel near the airport so we could relax the last night. After living in a 8 square meter room in a hotel in London for 4 days while we both were sick, opening the door to our room at Sofitel was like coming to paradise. The room was large, cosy and had a delightful twin bed. The bathroom was also very nice. The room was also clean and tidy. The only negative thing is that you could hear the planes taking off / landing, but we didn't loose any sleep because of it and what else can you expect at an airport hotel? Will definetly stay here again if we are travelling to/from Gatwick again.

Location to Gatwick Airport. Very comfortable beds. Excellent staff.

Loved staying at Sofitel London Gatwick Hotel and will stay there again. Fantastic location at the North Terminal. Staff were professional, friendly and efficient. Very comfortable beds. Beautiful dinner at the Asian restaurant, where the service was excellent and the food delicious. The only disappointment was that my daughter and I could not book a massage as the spa at the hotel has been closed. Apart from that, we could not have had a better experience at this hotel.
