Major expansion for Bloc Gatwick

Housed inside Gatwick’s South Terminal, Bloc Hotel Group’s flagship property, which opened six years ago, is planning a near-doubling in size from 245 rooms to 473 to cope with demand.

Group managing director Rob Morgan said the high-specification hotel, which features super-fast wi-fi and sound-proofed bedrooms (below) fitted with the latest smart technology, had been running at more than 90% occupancy since opening in 2014.

“This landmark four-storey development a few short steps from security will add 231 new bedrooms with a mix of accommodation suited for all, from families to business travellers, at affordable prices,” he added.

“Gatwick has been home to Bloc Hotels for six years and we are delighted to be part of the fabric of this fabulous travel hub. There is unprecedented demand from passengers wanting to stay with us.”

Gatwick head of property Emma Rees said: “Bloc’s entrance sits just a few metres from South Terminal Departures, so the extension will provide even more of our passengers with super-fast, convenient access to our facilities.

“The hotel is a fantastic option for travellers with an early flight and many of the new rooms will also offer guests spectacular views of the busiest single runway in the world.”
