New Gatwick on-site hotels

By the end of the year Gatwick will probably be the best ‘hoteled’ airport in the UK, if not the world with five hotels actually on the site, all within walking distance of the secure area (airside). 

It already has the 828-room Hilton on the other side of the railway line to the Main Terminal, and adjacent to the North Terminal, the Sofitel (518 rooms) and Premier Inn (630 rooms).

Both due to open on 13 December are a Hampton By Hilton just by the North Terminal (192) and within the South Terminal complex itself, but very much landside, the Bloc Hotel (245 rooms), which is advertising rooms from just £59.  This is the little known UK company’s second hotel, the first now established in the centre of Birmingham.  Comments from clients seem to indicate small but very functional rooms but a lack of tea/coffee making facilities. www.gatwickairport.com
