Courtyard by Marriott
Within walking distance of Gatwick’s south terminal and with great offers on hotel accommodation and parking. This contemporary hotel offers park and fly packages and is only 30 minutes from central London. Marriott claim to offer the best steaks in the Gatwick area at their Casterbridge Grill.
Our verdict – We haven’t tried the steaks yet but can vouch for the location and contemporary look and feel of the hotel. Its ideal to be able to drop off your car and know that you can walk straight into the terminal in the morning without waiting for a bus transfer.
The Sofitel offers 4 Star luxury hotel with direct access to the North Terminal at Gatwick Airport. Contemporary bedrooms and bathrooms plus 24×7 fitness suite and award winning french cuisine at La Brasserie plus two other restaurants to choose from.
Our verdict – The location, star rating and facilities make the Sofitel our favourite for hotel accommodation at Gatwick North terminal.
The Copthorne hotel is within 10 minutes by bus from Gatwick Airport. Its a 4 star hotel set in 100 acres of woodland offering comfortable rooms and leisure facilities.
Our verdict – The Copthorne offers great value for money with its Gatwick airport hotels and parking package but you have to remember to add on 10/15 minutes travelling time to the airport.

Guess it's a case of, 'you get what you pay for!' Arrived at the Russ Hill Hotel with an exterior that looked much like it should be condemned only to confirm its ram-shackle condition by going inside. To be fair the staff, by and large, where friendly and helpful but it didn't compensate for the 70s style and generally poor standard of the hotel and accommodation.Parking felt like abandoning the vehicle to whatever fate befell it as there was no obvious security anywhere. The parking area was effectively a large sectioned area of deeply pitted disorganised waste land. No defined parking slots lead to partial abandonment of the vehicle in an area that approximated to a rough gravel area more suited to a 4x4.I would not use the hotel or parking facility again.
Thank you for your comments. We'll feedback to our commercial team and the hotel.
I've used this company several times with no complaints and have always had a very slick and professional experience. However, this time I would like to say a big thank you to the older gentlemen who greeted us on our arrival and really brightened up our day. Having dropped our bags at the terminal the day before to what can only be described as bunch of miserable so and so's working within the Gatwick airport (not your staff who have always been impeccable) . Your employee was the only guy who seemed to be genuinely happy in his work and left us talking about his kind nature well in to our bus trip back to the airport.Would I use this company again...yes without doubt!
Stayed at Russ Hill hotel overnight and left car there for week. Good efficient taxi service from hotel to airport. Excellent price, would highly recommend.
This is the second time I've stayed at the Courtyard Marriott before my flight and used the parking services during my holiday. I will definitely use this service again.I was lucky in finding a space close to the hotel entrance. Hotel and parking reception were next to each other within the hotel making it easy to check in and drop off keys.On my return my car was ready and waiting and again it was a very simple process to pick up the keys. Coaches to and from the terminal are frequent, but if necessary it's also in walking distance.Thanks for taking some of the hassle out of travel.
Used the parking4less +Sofitel hotel deal. Both drop off and collection worked very well. Particularly our return - being able to get to the carpark by short walk instead of waiting for bus etc. Highly recommended.
Awful ,will not use this place again, receptionist needs to go to college to learn people skills. Had to get a taxi from Gatwick as no response from hotel when called and not once 6 times , then to be treated and spoken to by an arrogant and such a rude receptionist like we were scum of the earth just stating she had been busy doing other work. To me a 24 hour reception desk that advertises meet and greet needs to have reception covered for that period. The keys were thrown on reception desk and no guidance as to the whereabouts of our car, on finding car not satisfied with condition of car but insurance will assist us.
Thank you for highlighting this poor service. We shall contact the hotel and let you know.
The hotel was pleasant and quiet. We have no complaints, and would unreservedly recommend it to others.
Excellent value for money - good hotel and food with convenience for Gatwick. Can't fault it!
A very relaxed efficient service, our hotel was 5 minutes from the car park, soon as we'd checked the car in we were straight on the bus to the airport, not jammed in like sardines as some we've used before. On our return we only had to wait less than 5 minutes for a return bus to pick up our car, which was easy to find and we were on our way home. Great service, great value. I would definitely recommend The Ibis hotel and purple parking.
Excellent parking arrangements and nice welcoming staff. Didn't like the expensive bar prices and the Traffic noise as our room was at the front of the building. Probably try and find a quieter place next time.
