Trip Advisor Review Rating:

The Sandman Hotel chain have managed to create one of the sleekest pre and post-flight hotels to stay in. Boasting modern, sophisticated and classy interiors, only the best amenities, and great access to Gatwick airport, this is an excellent hotel to choose.

One of the few Gatwick airport hotels which still has a swimming pool available to guests, you can relax before your flight with a lovely swim, or wash off the jet-lag by taking a few lengths. There is also a gym and fitness suite available to guests, so don’t worry about missing out on your all-important gym sessions.

Take your pick from the Arts Grill or the Club bar to grab food from during your stay. For a sophisticated meal, excellent service and cuisine with a dash of international colour, visit the Arts Grill. If you want to sup a pint of your favourite brew and not miss out on your team’s game even when you’re travelling then the Club Bar could be the place for you.

If you’re wondering what your hotel room would be like at the Sandman Gatwick then have no fear. Only the best presentation, furniture and décor awaits you. With newly refurbished bedrooms and bathrooms you can climb between crisp, cotton-fresh bed sheets for a restful night’s sleep before your flight or when returning to the UK. You can make use of the in-room fridge, microwave, safe, iron & board, bedside USB charging point and the flat screen LCD TV!

You might want a restful day and following night’s sleep before your onward journey, however, if you’re more the adventurous type and want to fill up your time then why not visit Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures and the Bluebell Steam Railway which are just a short drive away? For a more sedate day take in Chartwell House, Hever Castle or Wakeham Place which are also in the nearby area.

And if you bring a car to visit these places before or after flying from Gatwick you don’t need to worry about parking. Book FHR can sort Sandman Gatwick stay & park packages which will leave your motor in good hands while you’re off visiting the world. Get in touch today for a quote.
