Beneath the surface of the Ibis Gatwick lurks more a touch of familial warmth. It's comfy, it's practical and it's easy on your pocket.

If you arrive too late for dinner, there's a 24-hour snack menu in the bar; then there's an all-you-can-eat continental breakfast in the morning from 4am. It's all rather like going to stay with your aunt who tries to feed you up at all times of the day. You can even take your pets, which might be just as well - a spot of dog-walking will probably be in order after all those croissants.

The Gatwick Ibis offers secured parking and is just 15 minutes from the airport, the Ibis is the ideal choice. WIth round the clock, first-class service and a 15-minute satisfaction guarantee - the Ibis is a pretty good for a 2-star hotel!

Gatwick ibis ideally Located. Easy transfers with G5 shuttle bus each way (£3 pp each way). Hotel food good, room clean and staff super friendly & helpful �

Ms Robb (Gatwick Ibis)

Facilities were very good. Particularly liked the "wet room cabin". The transfer from airport to hotel was difficult as our plane was delayed and we had to get a service bus after midnight. This meant we had a-15 minute walk with our
bags when we were already tired.

Mrs Angwin (Gatwick Ibis)

Yes we were very happy with our choice. Rooms very comfortable and quiet. Would have no hesitation in recommending the ibis and would certainly stay here again.

Ms Stockdale (Gatwick Ibis)

Excellent. Very comfortable room. Clean, very easy transfer to airport. Superb value for money. Will use again.

Ms Stockdale (Gatwick Ibis)

Everything you need for a night. A fridge in the rooms would be a bonus but otherwise the rooms are very comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful.
