Features at the Gatwick Days Hotel

With bags of character, the Gatwick Days Hotel is perfect for every member of your family to relax and unwind in before you catch your flight. There’s also a bar, so you can send the kids off to bed and enjoy a drink with family or friends before you call it a night.

After dinner, you will definitely sleep soundly in the colourful and cosy bedrooms, where you can relax in front of your own flatscreen TV with Freeview or surf the net with the complimentary Wi-Fi. There’s a host of different room types on offer, all of which are fitted with décor that’s contemporary but still cosy.

Check-in times

You can check in from 2pm and must check out by 11am, unless you’ve arranged a different time with the hotel.

Parking at the Gatwick Days Hotel

Parking at the Days Hotel Gatwick couldn’t be more straightforward. There are two different options to suit your needs: leave your vehicle at the hotel car park, or store it in one of the Gatwick airport car parks nearby.


When you arrive at the Gatwick Days Hotel, check in and find a space for your vehicle. If you’ve arranged a package to leave the car at the hotel for the whole of your holiday, then hand over your keys and an attendant will do the hard work for you – and when you return from your trip, they will bring it to the front of the hotel to greet you.

If you would rather have more control, then you can leave your car in front of the Days Gatwick Hotel for free overnight. Before your flight, you can make your way to the Gatwick airport North and South Long Stay car parks and take the airport shuttle bus from there to your terminal. This service is included in the price of your parking and runs every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day.

Getting to and from Gatwick airport

If you’re leaving your car at the Gatwick Days Hotel for your holiday period, then you will need to catch the shuttle bus from the hotel to the Gatwick terminals. Let the hotel reception know and they’ll book you a seat on the shuttle bus, which operates between 6am and midnight and costs £4 per person. The bus takes around ten minutes to reach the airport and leaves from outside the hotel – but make sure you leave enough time for traffic, in case the bus takes a little longer to reach Gatwick airport.

Over-stay charges

If you should be delayed returning from holiday, extended parking will be charged at the normal daily rate for the hotel or the car parking facility you have chosen.

Dining and drinking at the Gatwick Days Hotel

Whenever you’re peckish during the day, the Days Hotel Gatwick can fill the hunger gap! There’s a 24-hour room service menu for snacks whenever you like, as well as the charming Watershed restaurant and bar. Sat next to the reception area, the inviting eatery has kept some of the delightful original features, which give the interior a wonderfully British character. The relaxed atmosphere includes a well-stocked bar that offers a range of soft and alcoholic drinks.


The Watershed’s easy-going ambience makes it the perfect place to dine. You can while away a few hours over a meal as you prepare for bed before your flight the next day. The breakfast features toast, fruit and cereals with a selection of hot and cold drinks to choose from. There’s also a full English breakfast and eggs cooked in various ways, should you want a little more to start your day with. You can grab your breakfast at the Days Hotel Gatwick between 6am and 9.30am for £5.50 per person.

If you fancy a snack during the day, then the menu at the bar is perfect. Order jacket potatoes and baguettes, or more meaty bites like burgers and other pub favourites. Priced from £8.50, the a la carte menu in the evening includes delicious dishes such as sirloin steak, chicken supreme and deep-fried Camembert. Meanwhile, the table d’hote offers you three irresistible courses that include chicken liver pate and baked salmon fillet. Dinner is served between 6pm and 9.30pm, with the convenient room service filling in for later eaters.
