Luxury 4 star Hotel Sofitel at London Gatwick North

Sitting right next to Gatwick North terminal is one of our favourite Gatwick airport hotels. You couldn't be closer to check in if you tried with this one. The Sofitel Gatwick Hotel boasts award-winning dining, unbeatable proximity and dangerously cosy beds.
The rooms are spacious with comfy SoBed™s to sink into, en suite as standard and triple-glazed windows to ensure you have a peaceful night sleep. Business travellers and families alike will be made to feel at home.

Conveniently close

The Sofitel hotel is connected to the north terminal by a covered walkway, meaning you'll be at the check-in within a few minutes of checking out. Which leaves you some extra time to enjoy the comfiest beds at Gatwick. If you are flying from the south terminal, you can hop on the free Heathrow monorail service which runs every three minutes. Such convenience is unbeatable for all travellers especially disabled passengers, large groups and/or families and those who simply cherish a lie in.

Rooms at Sofitel Gatwick

Every room at the Sofitel is made up to a high standard, right down to the tea and coffee facilities. They boast spacious rooms with stylish decor, and a dangerously comfortable bed - so comfy are the SoBeds that it isn't unusual for travellers to order one to have at home. There's no fear of oversleeping because the hotel provides a wake up call service.

You might forget just how close you are to the runway because all of the windows are excellently soundproofed with triple-glazing, so you'll be none the wiser to the planes taking off a few minutes away.

Room upgrades

Every standard double features a comfy queen-size bed, free wifi and a stylish en-suite bathroom. However, for travellers wanting a little bit extra then there are a few room upgrades available to you:

  • Superior room:premium wifi, 10% discount on food and drinks, mineral water
  • Executive room:premium wifi, chocolate bars, mineral water, Club lounge access and 10% food and drink discount

We recommend the seventh floor for keen plane spotters, you'll have the best seats in the house for watching the runway.

Family rooms at Sofitel Hotel Gatwick

There are interconnecting rooms available for families of 3 or more, so the adults can have some privacy but, within easy reach of the children! If you'd rather stay in the same room, families of 3 and 4 can have an extra double or single bed.
