The Sofitel hotel in Gatwick is located on-site at the airport and is connected to the North Terminal by undercover walkway, making it ideal for those with early flights or late returns.
Packages of 4, 8 and 15 days are available on-site at the Sofitel hotel when booked with Gatwickreservations.com. (Extra parking is charged by the day at a cost of £15 and does not need to be pre-booked.) Simply arrive at the hotel and park outside, whilst you unload your luggage and check-in. Then, move your vehicle into the hotel car park which is located at the rear of the hotel.
Your car may be moved to a secure local car park during your trip but will be returned to the hotel for your return to Gatwick.
The hotel is connected to the North Terminal building by undercover walkway so there is no need to take a shuttle to the airport.
Guests travelling from the South Terminal can take the free monorail service, which is located next to the Sofitel.
The hotel has a small, on-site gym that is free for hotel guests.
All rooms offer free internet access, tea and coffee making facilities and air conditioning, as standard.

Well located for North Terminal
Convenient, convenient, convenient. Only point is that the signage to the parking is less visible than that to the overflow parking, so it is all too easy to end up across the road and then moving the luggage is more difficult.
