Some of the larger airport hotels offer more than accommodation. They also offer secure airport parking, as well as valet parking and Park and Fly packages. Smaller airport hotels located inside the terminals may offer discounts on parking, so it pays to check the range of services when you’re booking.
Hotels at Gatwick North Terminal
Due to its smaller size, and less flight traffic the North Terminal has fewer airport hotels but travellers have the 4-star Sofitel which offers direct access via a covered walkway. For more airport hotels those in the South Terminal are easily reached by the inter-terminal monorail which is a five minute journey. Alternatively, there are a number of airport lounges in the North Terminal which may suit your needs better than an airport hotel, especially if you just need a shower and a bite to eat.

Hotels at Gatwick South Terminal

Offering a range of accommodation from cozy cabins to luxury suites, Gatwick’s South Terminal caters to every kind of budget, taste and preference when it comes to airport accommodation. Like the North Terminal it has several airport lounges which can also be a haven if you need a quiet place to relax, catch up on your emails or relax with a drink before or after your flight.
