This property is due for a face lift
Decent, no frills, slow lifts
Overnight stay in-between flights. Non-event hotel: a bed in a room. Hotel is functional, clean, quiet, charmless, dull, old. 135 GBP for one night without breakfast: overpriced and not good value for money. Only use it if you have absolutely no other alternative.

Great stay.
The closeness to the terminal. The friendly helpful staff. The comfortable rooms.

Convenient, clean, soulless
Location just at the Gatwick north terminal; quiet; comfortable bed
Couldn't be more convenient for late night arrivals or morning departures. Everything went smoothly and the room was quiet and reasonably comfortable. But the place feels like a machine. A minimum of human interaction; the bathroom felt like it was designed to eliminate any possibility that guests would steal or break anything. Fitness center was only barely adequate; cable channels a UK minimum. Use it when you need it; don't expect more.

Quiet sleep between flights
No shuttle, great shower, excellent breakfast
Restful and quiet but we did request twin beds but were given a king size. The room was changed to a Queen plus sofa-bed which wasn't as comfortable as two twins.

Nice airport hotel
Location, style, value for money
I stayed a weekend with my son in the Sofitel London Gatwick. The hotel is located on the North Terminal (there is an entrance from the train station). You are in five minutes at the airport. The staff is extremly friendly and helpful. Check in and out were done quickly. Rooms are clean, spacey and conservatively furbished.

ALWAYS RELIABLE
location, comfort, quality?
I always enjoy staying at the Gatwick Sofitel. It is like going home after a long flight. The rooms are good and the bedding is just like home.

Standards have slipped and are not good
location
This hotel used to be great, sadly it has slipped badly, arrived late (11pm) after a long and delayed flight, had an executive room with club access - this was closed, no mini bar and no food at this time. The bar did eventually get us 2 drinks, £26 for 2! The room was fusty, tired and lacked toiletries and I was left asking where is the executive part here, the ac was noisy and did not work well. Morning breakfast struggled to get a quick coffee, no take away option before getting an early start for central London meeting. The final sting was to charge an EXTRA £16 for parking my hire car for 6 hours! - Front desk manager was rude and arrogant and said that was the policy, the whole thing nothing executive, none of my colleagues will now use this hotel simply because of arrogance and this is a preium price with little or no service and standards slipped badly.
