Gatwick Airport Hotels South Terminal
If you're flying from Gatwick South Terminal, then a couple of options within walking distance are: Hilton London Gatwick South - connected via a covered walkway to the South Terminal and has free transfers to the North Terminal which only takes a couple of minutes. Facilities include a LivingWell Express Gym and various dining options. 3.5* Courtyard by Marriott Gatwick - this is walking distance to Gatwick South Terminal but alternatively there is a minibus. Facilities include a gym, WiFi (payable locally), Volare restaurant and Volare bar/lounge.
Gatwick Airport Hotels North Terminal
If you're flying from Gatwick North Terminal, there are a couple of hotels which are within a few minutes' walk: 4* Sofitel London Gatwick - connected to the North Terminal via a covered walkway. There are also free transfers to Gatwick South Terminal which take just 2 minutes. The Sofitel is great for food lovers, with a choice of four restaurants: La Terrace, La Brasserie, Urban Café and Oriental restaurant. 3* Hampton by Hilton - connected to the North Terminal.

The Cheapest Gatwick Airport Hotels
It's worth noting that if a hotel is off-airport there may be a transfer cost payable in addition to the room price. Prices vary dependent on when you travel, however there are a few Gatwick hotels which offer cheap rates: 4* Copthorne Hotel Effingham is set in 40 acres of parkland. This hotel has great facilities including a 9-hole golf course, tennis and gym. Transfers to the airport take approximately 15 minutes and cost £4.50 per person. If you are purely looking for a cheap room close to the airport, the 3* Britannia Lodge Hotel and 3* Europa are 15 and 10 minutes (respectively) transfer by taxi costing approximately £9 each way.
The Best Gatwick Airport Hotels for Families
If you are travelling with your family, which hotel is the best will depend on your budget. If you have young children, staying on-airport at Gatwick means that they will get extra time in bed before you have to wake them. The Hilton London at South Terminal or Sofitel at the North Terminal would be great as they have a covered walkway to the airport terminals. However, if you are looking for a mid-budget hotel, the recently refurbished 4* Sandman Signature London Gatwick has all the facilities you would need with young children, including a swimming pool, in-room fridge and microwave, and free WiFi. Transfers to Gatwick Airport take approximately 8 minutes for a fixed fee of £8.50.
The Best Gatwick Airport Hotels for Couples
At FHR, we have a 4* Super Saver Rate which offers superb value with the only catch being that you are only told the hotel name once you have booked. However, if you want to play detective have a good read of the description and see if you can guess which hotel it will be! For a hotel that has all the facilities including a swimming pool, fitness suite, restaurant, bar combined with fantastic room amenities including a fridge, premium bedding, rain showers and free Wi-Fi, look no further than the 4* Sandman Signature London Gatwick. For those who want convenience and love a hot breakfast, then the Hampton by Hilton Gatwick North would be a good bet.
The Best Gatwick Airport Hotels for Business Travellers
For the business traveller we know that time is money, so the Gatwick hotels of choice would be the Sofitel London Gatwick at the North Terminal or the Hilton London Gatwick at the South Terminal as both are accessible by covered walkways from the terminals.

Gatwick Airport Hotels with Parking
When you travel to the airport by car, you need to find somewhere to leave your vehicle whilst you are away. Combining parking with an overnight stay in an airport hotel before you fly takes away the stress of an early morning start. There is no need to rush to the airport or worry about getting caught up in roadworks, diversions or slow traffic on the way. An added incentive; sometimes it can work out cheaper to book a hotel with parking than to book airport parking on its own. Booking a Gatwick airport hotel with car parking included in the package can be cost-effective, but does bring a set of common questions:
Does the hotel have its own car park, or do I need to find one?
Most hotels will take care of your parking arrangements in their own car park, or you can opt to have meet and greet parking included, or pick the option with long stay parking at a secured car park nearby.
If the hotel does have a car park, will my vehicle stay there or be moved?
If you book a hotel with parking on-site at the hotel, (this will be clearly stated in the hotel's information), your car will remain in the hotel's car park.
Is the car park secure?
The hotel's own car parks will usually have a barrier as well as CCTV.
Will I leave my keys, or do I take them with me?
If the hotel has its own car park, you will need to be prepared to leave your keys for fire safety reasons and some hotels will need the keys to park your car in a special area of the car park for long term parking. If you book a hotel with a meet & greet package you will need to leave your keys for the chauffeur collecting your car.
How far is the hotel from the airport terminal?
The distance from the hotel to Gatwick Airport will vary. We offer several hotels on airport, which means they are within walking distance of the south terminal or north terminal. Our off-airport hotels are situated a few minutes' drive away.
Do I need a transfer, and if so do I arrange that or does the hotel?
For off airport hotels located a few miles away from Gatwick Airport, you will need a transfer. Many hotels have either regular shuttle services available (charges will apply), or they will arrange a taxi for you on request, at your own cost. Please note that some hotel shuttle services might not run 24 hours per day, it is your responsibility to confirm this with the hotel.
Gatwick hotels with on airport parking
Hotels that offer on-airport parking are located at the airport itself. Some hotels have their own car park, alternatively you can use Gatwick's Long Stay car park. Parking for Hilton London Gatwick South is at the South Terminal Long Term car park. The hotel is located just minutes from check in at Gatwick's South Terminal, accessed via a covered walkway. Hampton by Hilton and Sofitel London Gatwick have their own car parks and are connected to Gatwick's North Terminal via a covered walkway. If you are staying near the South Terminal, but flying from the North Terminal (and vice versa), to get between terminals, simply take the inter-terminal shuttle service. It runs every few minutes 24/7 with a journey time of just two minutes.
Gatwick hotels with off airport secure parking (park & ride)
Off-airport hotels require a transfer to Gatwick Airport, which will incur additional cost, or if you choose the meet and greet package you will meet at the departure terminal, so transfers will not be required. Transfer by taxi from Europa Hotel Gatwick will cost from £9 each way (depending on numbers) and take approximately 10 minutes. This hotel has its own car park. Copthorne Hotel Effingham and Copthorne London Gatwick have onsite car parking and are 10 minutes from the airport by taxi. Alternatively, a minibus transfer runs hourly between 4:15am and 11:15pm, costing £4.50 per person. A reduced rate taxi service from the airport to the hotel can be requested on return, costing from £9.50.
Meet & Greet
Why not combine your Gatwick hotel overnight stay with a Meet & Greet service. For this you will need to drive to the airport after your hotel stay. A fully insured driver will meet you at the airport terminal and take your vehicle to a secure car park. On your return, the driver will deliver the vehicle back ready for your collection.

Understaffed reception, uncomfortable bed.

Unwelcoming and unfriendly staff.
Rating Lauren - 14 Jun 2018 10:05
Clean well equipped room and lovely bathroom. Bed however was very soft and not the comfiest. Restaurants looked lovely however the soft drinks in the pub were awful and we asked for a refund as totally flat and they called a manager to verify this before they'd change our drinks! Food didn't look great in the pub so we ate outside of the hotel. Quiet overnight and great parking option for stay and fly as you keep your car keys.

Excellent service, no problems whatsoever. Everything was straight forward and the hotel was really nice and comfortable.

Easy to find and check in. Room excellent quality. Receptionist a little abrupt when asking why we werenât parking at the hotel for our holiday, had to explain that we were using meet and greet service at the airport.

Perfect location, hotel is dated but it served a purpose. Good deal too.
Rating Andy G - 09 Jun 2018 12:48
Staff very helpful, plenty of choice at breakfast, recommended taxi firm for airport transfers is cheap in comparison to others but book it at least 45mins before you need it. Hotel clean, but could do with a bit of modernisation. Stayed here before & would do again.

On arrival we found it very difficult to find a parking space. On driving round we eventually found one tucked in a corner near some bushes!! Hence on collection car was in a vey dirty condition. Reception was very busy and so quite a long wait to check in. Room fine. Very large with everything we needed. Would stay again but hesitant as 2nd time parking has been an issue.

Booked this hotel with friends prior to holiday flight from Gatwick During the booking process all the internet pages appeared to indicate that we were booking the Copthorne in Copthorne village complete with village pub etc We thought this would be a great start to the holiday! Only on arrival did we find out that we were in the Copthorne at Effingham park a few miles up the road. Really disappointed! The hotel was adequate and lots of parking. Transfers to and from Gatwick ok and timely although charged for them. Overall experience ok but was hoping for much better!

The hotel was only 15 mins from the airport and had underground parking was was a plus. But it loses points for having the most uncomfortable beds of any hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere worldwide. The so called called room service was non existent, we looked at the menu for something light as it was late. The only thing available was curry or cold rolls or pizza. We tried to order pizza only to be told they had run out of bases and the only thing we could have was rolls. We ordered takeaway from around the corner which arrived hot and within minutes. An international airport hotel which deals with people arriving all hours of the night and day should be able to provide food whatever the time. When we checked in we asked for hotel transfer to the terminal only to be told that the bus only runs hourly on the quarter to the hour and it was full. We either could go an hour earlier or have a taxi. We paid for a taxi. All in all I would never recommend this hotel or stay in it again, and I have stayed in plenty of airport hotels to compare this was the worst.
