The Sofitel is the only hotel that is right in Gatwick North Terminal (the other at Gatwick is the Hilton but that is at South Terminal) It is an easy walk from the hotel to the check-in desks all under cover. Everyone that I know who has stayed there has been very satisfied. Hope this helps.

Sorry but I don't have any information about the Sofitel. Whenever I have to spend more than a few hours in Gatwick I stay in the Yotel right in Gatwick South Terminal. This is only a short train journey (5 minutes or so) to the North Terminal. Parking (I think) has to be arranged seperately - I fly in from Dublin. But the price is more than reasonable - a lot less than a standard airport hotel.

Hi ,yes we always stay at the Sofital Gatwick and have the car park included in the package. This is best booked in advance as you seem to get a better deal. You simply drive to the hotel, go to reception, check in, leave your luggage in your room and then park your car in the long stay car park, that they allocate at north terminal. You then get the car park's bus back to the north terminal,(these run every few minutes). Then you either walk, under cover, back to the hotel or go shopping !!!! or find a place to have a meal or a drink !! Of course, the hotel has resturants and their own bars. If you want to visit South Terminal, or you are flying from there the next morning, just hop on the monorail, all under cover and only takes a few minutes. Hope this is of some help.

Stayed their Dec 06, and Hilton Dec 07, I personally prefer the Sofitel, as its a much nicer hotel and easy to commute between the South Terminal via the airport shuttle.
