The luxurious hotel is built around a grand central atrium that houses many of the bars and restaurants, so there’s a real convivial feel as soon as you walk in the door.

The choice of restaurants and bars is superb, with three different places to eat and two bars, as you enjoy the first day of your holiday. La Brasserie is the place for a sophisticated dinner, whilst the relaxed Le Café serves up mouthwatering light snacks and lunches. At the other end of the lobby, the prestigious Gatwick Oriental offers exceptional Asian cuisine.

If you’re feeling as though you need to get your holiday off to a healthy start, then you are certain to be a fan of the on-site fitness centre, featuring cardio and resistance fitness equipment. Meanwhile, the impressive rooms are every hotel guest’s dream – with a television, internet access and en-suite bathroom, you’re guaranteed to remember your stay at the Gatwick Sofitel long after you’ve caught you flight abroad.

Check-in times

You can check in to the hotel from 2pm and you’ll need to make sure you’re checked out by noon the next day.

Parking at the Gatwick Sofitel

There are several parking options at the Gatwick Sofitel. You can arrange to leave your car in the hotel car park while you’re away, and the staff will move it to another car park if the one at the hotel becomes too busy. Alternatively, you could purchase a package with Maple Manor’s Meet and Greet service, they will take your car when you arrive at the hotel and store it in a secured car park off-site, then return it back to you when you arrive at the terminal from your return flight. If neither of these options are ideal for you, then you can always leave your vehicle at the Gatwick Long Stay car park. It’s easy to find and includes a free shuttle bus to the hotel site afterwards.


No matter which parking package you’ve bought, your arrival at the hotel will be quick and easy. If you’ve arranged to leave your car at the hotel, simply find a space and hand your keys in to the hotel reception when you check in. The Maple Manor Meet and Greet service will meet you outside the hotel, and the Long Stay car park is only a short shuttle bus journey from the airport. Drop your car off at the car park first, then catch the bus to either the North or South terminal. If you go to the South terminal, you can take the free monorail to the North terminal, where you’ll find the Gatwick Sofitel.

Getting to and from Gatwick airport

The Sofitel Gatwick is conveniently positioned at the heart of the Gatwick airport site, so there’s no need to catch any transfers or taxis to the departures hall. From the hotel, walk to the North terminal in five minutes or catch the free monorail to the South terminal.

Over-stay charges

Speak to the hotel when you arrange your parking, or with Maple Manor if you’re purchasing their Meet and Greet package, to arrange extra days. Each day will be charged at the daily parking rate.
