A blissful night opposite the North Terminal

Located directly opposite the North terminal, this 3-star stopover is widely considered a top Gatwick airport hotel for convenience. The Premier Inn Gatwick North Terminal is one of the best budget hotels that you can easily walk to Gatwick's North terminal from - it's just a short, 1 minute walk. If you're flying from Gatwick's South Terminal, there's a free, 3-minute monorail ride between the North and South that runs every couple of minutes. All this and you'll still get everything you'd expect from a Premier Inn: comfy rooms, a great value restaurant and friendly staff, all for a fantastic price.

Super handy location facing the North Terminal. Relaxed dining. Spacious rooms are peaceful. Wifi's all in.[/b

[b]You've all seen the adverts, so you know what to expect from Premier Inn, and Gatwick's hotel is no exception. The large, comfortable rooms put some more-expensive hotels to shame, but the fantastic, friendly Thyme restaurant is what really draws in experienced travellers. They know it's the perfect place to find familiar food with a minimum of fuss. In fact, regular travellers know the trick with airport hotels is to pick the Premier Inn for precisely what they need at a price they can afford.

You can check in from 3pm and grab a coffee at the Costa cafe in the hotel, while you take in the fantastic view of the terminal. Costa serves all the usual cakes and sandwiches along with its renowned coffee, and is the perfect place to recover from your long drive.

When you head up to your room, you can expect comfort that outstrips what you paid and a lot of purple. There's Freeview TV and free wifi in the rooms, but you can pay a little extra for faster internet if you need it. The room has blackout curtains, air conditioning and the bed will be exceptionally comfortable.

You're in for a treat at the hotel's Thyme restaurant. It has the same kind of atmosphere, service and food that you'd find at your local family pub. The dinner menu is available from 17:00 to 22:30, then you can head into the bar and toast your holiday until 01:30.

The Premier Inn Breakfast is bigger and better than ever. Choose as much as you want from the mouth-watering menu, including succulent sausages, crispy back bacon, eggs the way you like them and beautifully baked pastries, with fresh juices, tea and unlimited Costa coffee. Breakfast is served from 05:30 to 10:30 on weekdays, 11:30 at weekends.

Check out by 12 noon and take the short walk across to the North terminal - it takes no time at all. From there, there's a free monorail across to the South terminal if that's where you need to be.

Hints, tips and extra bits:

If you're parking overnight, you'll need to head to the North terminal Short Stay and look for car park 6. Park there and take your ticket to the Premier Inn reception nearby. The hotel will arrange your parking during your stay for a discount price of £19.50 and validate your ticket so you can get out.
