Gatwick Premier Inn

Premier Inn has officially opened its largest UK property this week, with the 630-room hotel located at Gatwick’s North Terminal.

The new-build property is located directly opposite the terminal, next to the Sofitel hotel, with the airport reached by taking a short walk through the passenger drop-off area.

Room 333 is also significant in that it is the brand’s 50,000th room, and even has a special gold plaque outside the door.

This is one of nine openings by the budget chain in the Greater London area planned before the end of 2013, including the recently opened Premier Inn on Leicester Square.

Each room caters for up to two adults and two children (aged 15 and under) and includes an en-suite bathroom, a king size bed, tea and coffee making facilities, and 30 minutes of free wi-fi access (24-hour access costs £3), as standard.

The hotel also offers all you can eat breakfast for £8.25 each, with kids under 16 eating free when one adult orders.  There is a Costa coffee franchise in the lobby near reception, as well as the main bar and restaurant, Thyme, which serves pub classics and pizza. www.premierinn.com
