Perfect location for Gatwick Airport, fuss - free transfer in the morning. Dated room but comfy and superb shower

Yes Holiday Extras delivered on Hotel and Parking. However, food average but drinks very, very expensive and way over priced even for Gatwick.

Just a minor whinge, is that an our return to the UK to collect my car keys from Sofitel Gatwick north terminal, you have to queue behind people that are checking in unless, like me, you were lucky to see a concierge who was good enough to get my car keys for me otherwise I may have had to have waited for another half an hour, so that needs looking into from the hotels point of view

Gatwick’s Long Stay car parks are easy to find, with the route well signposted. As the car park has automatic number plate recognition, we’ll ask you for your plate number when you book your parking. When you arrive at the car park the automatic barrier will recognise your car and let you in. You can see maps and directions to the car park at our Long Stay parking page.

There are Long Stay car parks at both the North and South terminals of Gatwick airport. A short bus transfer to the terminal is included in the cost of your parking and runs 24 hours a day, every 10 minutes. Depending on traffic, transfer times are usually around five minutes.

On the day of your stay

Drive to the Premier Inn A23 and park in the hotel's car park overnight. Full driving directions will be on your confirmation and overnight parking costs £15.

Getting from the hotel to the airport

Drive to Purple Parking - full details will be on your email confirmation.

Park in one of the arrivals bays and drop off your keys in reception.

You'll be given a ticket which you need to keep this safe and your car will be parked for you while you board the shuttle bus to the terminal.

Buses run from Purple Parking every 20 minutes, take 10 minutes to get to the North Terminal and 15 minutes to get to the South and are included in the price.

Purple Parking will keep an eye on your car with CCTV and regular staff patrols while you're away.

Coming home

Catch the shuttle bus back to Purple Parking. It's bus stop 6 at the North Terminal and bus stop 7 or 8 at the South Terminal. You'll need to show the ticket you were given when you arrived to the bus driver as you board.

Collect your keys from reception and find your car.

Drive to the exit barrier and scan the barcode attached to your keys to leave.

If you are due to return earlier than planned, give the car park a call to let them know.
