from the airport
A spacious hotel to fit all your entourage
Travelling in a large group? Stag do, hen night or just a large family? Then the Britannia Airport Inn is perfect, with suites that can sleep up to seven people! There's plenty of parking and lots of seats in the restaurant and bar. Still, even if you're not bringing the whole family, you'll still love being just one mile from the airport at this Gatwick hotel.
If you've got lots of people arriving by car, then the Airport Inn hotel car park is multi-storey and on-site. Park your car up, stay the night in the hotel, then jump on a shuttlebus direct to the terminal in the morning. You'll have enough chaos getting all your party to the airport at the same time without complicated parking arrangements!
We booked the Airport Inn to stay the night before we were flying out to Croatia to attend my daughters wedding. As we had an extremely early flight, we wanted somewhere very close to Gatwick so we could walk to the airport in the morning and not have to worry about getting a taxi. Also, we had my brotherinlaw with us who has anxiety and mental health issues and hasn’t flown for 20 years, and isn’t a good traveller. When we arrived at the hotel we were astonished to find a notice on the front door saying that the hotel was closed and to go to a different hotel that was in Crawley!! We saw a security guard who found the manager and he explained that we should have received an email from yourselves explaining that the hotel was closed. We never received any email and we were extremely angry. My brother in law got extremely anxious so we decided to try the premier inn to see if we could stay there instead. Thankfully they had 2 rooms at a cost of £88 each, we also had to pay to park the car and in total paid £304. When we phoned the other hotel to explain they said they would cancel the room but we needed to contact yourselves instead. As you can imagine I am extremely angry at what happened, we obviously expect a full refund and some sort of compensation for the inconvenience and anxiety that you have caused. I look forward to your speedy response.Mr Rosenberg ( Airport Inn Gatwick)

We recommend the Airport Inn for:
Group travel - Triple, quad rooms and seven-person suites mean you don't have to split up during your stay, but still have enough space so you won't be tripping over each other. The rest of the hotel is built to accommodate large groups too.
Families - Along with the extra space, the Airport Inn offers free cots and high chairs, and a play area. The restaurant has early-evening service and a children's menu with activity packs to keep them entertained. Generally, the hotel welcomes children and families, so you won't feel like outcasts.
Comfort and convenience - The hotel is large enough that you'll never feel cramped, quiet despite being so close to the airport and the rooms are very comfortable, so you're sure a great night's sleep. Then, in the morning, it's just a quick hop to the airport.
Budget-friendly hotel with relaxed dining and comfortable rooms. Kids can enjoy free table football and retro video games.
