I hired a meeting room to carry out an afternoon of job interviews. Joanna at reception was very helpful and let me know when the candidates arrived so I could come out and meet them when I was ready. The room was very comfortable and well stocked with water. The Sofitel is 5 minutes walk from North terminal under cover,... More

We booked one night as we were arriving back at Gatwick late. At check in we were informed we were "guests of the day " and so upgraded to a Club room. Very nice but unfortunately as we were late arrivals we missed most of the benefits! We did enjoy the complimentary mini bar and Continental breakfast. The rooms are... More

We always stay here before a long haul holiday & consider it part of our holiday now. The club rooms are very good & include drinks & canapés in the evening together with a continental breakfast in the morning, we have noticed recently that the evening canapés are not as good as they used to be though.

I stayed here the night before I went on holiday, I had a very comfortable room. I had some drinks at the bar downstairs and some food too, which were all very pleasant. I left very early in the morning before breakfast, and it was just a short walk to the terminal.

Obviously this place cannot be beaten for location. 2 minute walk from Gatwick North terminal. Service was good. I ordered food downstairs as the menu was better than room service so they gave me a tray and covered my food so I could take it to my room. Nothing to complain about

“Whilst all rooms are well insluated, the rooms facing inwards, i.e. facing the lobby/bar restaurants rather than overlooking the road, and higher up are the quietest.”
