4-star convenience and facilities

If Gatwick airport hotels were cakes, then the Crowne Plaza Gatwick would be the one with just that little bit of extra icing on the top. This is the hotel where they're so keen you get a good night's sleep, you don't just get blackout curtains, air con and a flatscreen TV in your room, but a set of aromatherapy products designed to speed you along to the land of nod. Where breakfast isn't just sausages, beans, bacon and eggs, but kippers, pancakes and muffins too. Admittedly probably not with icing on, but at the Crowne Plaza, we couldn't swear to it ...

Our customers rated Crowne Plaza on average 9/10 (973 reviews). Read Crowne Plaza reviews.

If you're after airport parking as well as a good nights sleep, the Crowne Plaza has teamed up with Purple Parking, formally Airparks, to offer our customers a great deal on a hotel and parking when booked together.

1 weeks parking from as low as £10 with Crowne Plaza and Holiday Extras Express Parking.

This is an EXCLUSIVE package only available through Holiday Extras. Combine your room with fuss-free parking at the hotel.

How it works:

Once at the Crowne Plaza follow signs for the designated Holiday Extras Express parking area. Check-in your car by dropping your keys off in the Holiday Extras locker located in reception. You'll be issued a confirmation receipt - be sure to tuck this in a safe place. It's as easy as that! Your car will be taken to a secured car park off-site and brought back to the hotel on your return.

Tastily-prepared menu with nicely-priced kids' meals and enticing breakfast choices. Free gym, wifi included.

Getting to the airport

The hotel can book you a taxi to the airport. It takes 15 minutes to get to the South Terminal and another five minutes to the North and costs £21 each way.

A taxi outside of these hours is about £12 per car each way - just ask at reception for assistance.


Overnight parking is available and costs £12 per car.

This package doesn't include parking while you're away. If you need to park your car for the duration of your trip, search for an airport hotel with parking package instead.
