A budget hotel you can trust

Although the Premier Inn, London Gatwick Airport, A23 Hotel is one of the lower-priced Gatwick airport hotels, it has a high-quality feel and efficient, friendly staff. The hotel is immediately welcoming, with a helpful reception desk and a convivial restaurant and bar area which serves food and drinks throughout the day (and night!).

The Premier Inn Gatwick A23 Airport Way, formerly the Premier Inn Gatwick Central, is an excellent choice for those travelling to Gatwick airport by car. It's just a four-minute drive from junction 9 of the M23, which makes it extremely easy to reach from the motorway, and is also within easy reach of Gatwick airport' Long Stay car park. Book your vehicle into the Gatwick airport Long Stay, just a few minutes drive away, and you can drop it off as soon as you arrive, leaving you to relax and start enjoying your holiday.

Our customers rated Premier Inn Gatwick A23 Airport Way on average 8/10 (133 reviews). Read Premier Inn Gatwick A23 Airport Way reviews.

To get to the terminal, the regular G2 bus service picks up from immediately outside the hotel's main entrance and takes just 10 minutes to reach the South terminal, and a further five minutes to reach the North terminal.

The Premier Inn Gatwick A23 Airport Way has a pleasant modern restaurant with a wide ranging menu of British pub-style dishes for both lunch and dinner, as well as a comfortable lounge area. There's also wifi (chargeable) in all areas, including the rooms. For any forgotten holiday must-haves, there's also a Shell garage next door with all the essentials which is open 24 hours a day.

We recommend the Premier Inn Gatwick A23 Airport Way for:

Families - Family rooms are spacious enough for two adults and two children, plus all those suitcases! Children are allowed in the welcoming bar area at all times and a special childrens menu is provided. Room rates are the same no matter how many people are staying, so the Premier Inn is also an affordable choice for families.

Parking - Gatwick airport's Long Stay car parks are extremely close to the hotel and getting there doesn't even involve driving on a main road. There's also a convenient secure car park at the hotel for the night of your stay.

Public transport - It's possible to walk to the North terminal from the hotel in less than five minutes and from here it's a simple (free) shuttle ride to the South terminal where you'll find the train station, with regular trains into London.

Spacious rooms with a king-size bed, blackout curtains, free wifi and an en-suite bathroom.

Park overnight at the hotel (costs £15) and drive to Purple Parking in the morning. To get to and from the car park you can use the shuttle bus which is included in the price.
