Very nice hotel. Clean and staff so friendly. Airport hotel tend to be run down with all the in and out. Sofitel keeps this hotel fresh and clean.

Like: period charm of a manufactured sort. Access to Gatwick. Dislike: Was given coupons for free drinks and discounts. Left them in room and were not honored at checkout. Also had charges for items not purchased.

Very clean well maintained facility and the breakfast buffet is excellent

The good: This hotel is on the airport, so you do not have to get a taxi of shuttle to get there. You just walk. Nice drinks and dinner in the hotel. The bad: The room did not have USB points to charge phones. The closet doors were blocked by the bed, so it was not possible to hang things up. Staff at check out told me that they could not give me a final receipt on check out since I had booked through ORITZ. This was baloney.

Convenient location! Walking distance to Gatwick North Terminal!

The hotel facilities were clean and luxurious and provided all that I could have needed. The food provided was ample and of high quality and the room was a good size and well appointed.

Great place to stay if you have an early flight to catch

Comfortable and quiet as usual. Totally relaxing and enjoyable. Good view of runway this time.

convenient to the airport for relaxing long hours of lay over

The hotel claimed I didn’t prepay despite my email proof so I payed again as I had no choice. The comforter had urine stains, the blanket had other human fluids (disgusting), and none of the outlets worked with the international adapter we’ve used everywhere else without issue. Room smelled horrible, like the windows hadn’t been opened in years

Good rooms- wanted two twin beds got two singles... One of the elevators was broken and made going up and down tot he restaurant a wait. Breakfast was excellent Overall good experience

Just stayed overnight between flights. This hotel is close to the North Terminal at Gatwick. You have to ride a train to get to the South Terminal, but it is fairly convenient, although takes some extra time. Breakfast is served starting very early!

Great hotel. Right in north terminal. Good restaurants and generally comfortable rooms.

Wonderful Junior Suite with 3 beds and a sofa plus desk plus sitting area for our family. The room was very spacious, hotel amnemities were great, rooms were quiet. Beds were comfortable. A perfect hotel for coming or going to or from Gatwick.

Located within Gatwick Airport in North Terminal. Clean, quiet and upscale hotel. Highly recommend.

Not like any other airport hotel. VIP lounge is very accommodating , great food and drinks.This past visit, the room had a strange smell, but not that noticeable . Plus we were there only for 1 night. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel

Lufthansa pilot strike diverted us to Gatwick London where we had to overnight. Sofitel makes it much better. Happiness!
