Gatwick Airport is without doubt the busiest airport for package holidays for travellers from across the south of England. As such many passengers drive reasonably long distances to get to the airport and need a hotel at Gatwick with parking facilities where they can leave their car for the duration of their trip. If you are looking for Gatwick Airport hotels with parking, you are in luck as several hotels near Gatwick offer convenient packages which include accommodation near the airport and car parking, some of which are featured below:

Premier Inn Gatwick Airport Central offers a Park & Fly package which includes accommodation for one night for up to 2 adults and 2 children in their Gatwick Airport hotel and parking for 8 or 15 days, depending on the length of your holiday. On their website for a Saturday night stay in September 2011 we were quoted £112.00 for the package with 8 days of parking and £142.00 with 15 days of parking – for a midweek stay (Mon-Thurs) the rates were slightly higher at £117.00 and £148.00 respectively.

The Corner House Hotel has special rates for airport parking when you stay at their Gatwick hotel. On room only basis, a one night stay in a double room with an en suite bathroom including one week of parking would cost £83.00, and with 2 weeks of parking the price would be £111.00. Depending on your dates of travel, you may be able to take advantage of an offer we noticed on their website of half price holiday parking until March 2011 (subject to availability).

Stanhill Court is currently offering special Park & Fly packages starting at £69.00 for one night’s room only accommodation with up to 8 days parking and £79.00 with up to 15 days parking. This is a considerable discount off their regular rates and particularly cheap when you consider the high calibre of this hotel.

Located directly at Gatwick Airport, the Hilton Gatwick Airport Hotel offers Park & Fly packages which include a one night stay at their hotel at Gatwick Airport, and up to 8 or 15 days of Gatwick car parking just 8 minutes from the hotel, with a free shuttle from the car park to the South Terminal where the hotel is located.

Holiday Inn London Gatwick Aiport offers a Park, Stay & Go package which includes Gatwick accommodation for one night and onsite parking for up to 4, 8, 15 or 21 nights, depending on the length of your holiday or business trip.

The Copthorne Hotel offers a Park, Sleep, Fly package which includes one night at their luxury Gatwick Airport hotel and either 8 or 15 days of on-site car parking. Through their website’s booking engine we were quoted £89.00 for a Saturday night stay in September 2011 in a standard room with one double bed and 8 days parking, and £95.00 for the same room with 15 days parking.

All of the Gatwick Airport hotels featured on are located within a short radius of Gatwick Airport, normally less than 15 minutes drive from either the North or South Terminals. However, there are times when you might need a hotel at Gatwick Airport itself, so for the ultimate in convenience you may wish to stay at one of the following hotels directly at Gatwick Airport:

Sofitel London Gatwick is a Gatwick hotel located directly at the airport, linked via a 5 minute walk in a covered walkway to the North Terminal, and with the monorail train service connecting the North Terminal with the South Terminal in just 5-10 minutes, this Gatwick Airport hotel has an extremely convenient location for any passenger flying from London Gatwick.

Probably the most unique of all hotels at Gatwick, the YOTEL Gatwick offers small futuristic ‘cabins’ within the International Arrivals area of the South Terminal, just steps away from the South Terminal check-in desks, and an easy airport train ride away from the North Terminal.

Conveniently linked to Gatwick Airport South Terminal via a 5 to 10 minute walk in a covered walkway, Hilton Gatwick Airport Hotel also offers easy access to the North Terminal via the airport’s own monorail service, making it one of the most convenient Gatwick hotels, regardless which terminal your flight departs from.

Just because you haven’t yet arrived at your beach hotel doesn’t mean that you and the kids can’t go for a swim, a game of boules, or a game of tennis for that matter. Perhaps surprisingly there is a Gatwick Airport hotel where you can do all this and more:

The Leisure Club at the Copthorne Hotel London Gatwick has some of the best sports and leisure facilities of any hotel near Gatwick Airport. Their 15m indoor swimming pool is perfect for doing a few laps before taking your flight, and the steam room, sauna, solarium and gym are also welcome. The facilities do not stop there… there are also tennis courts, squash courts, a putting green, croquet lawn, a children’s adventure playground and a jogging track, all of which are quite unexpected for a hotel so conveniently located less than 10 minutes from Gatwick Airport. Combine these activities with a stroll through the 100 acres of woodlands and colourful gardens, and you have no excuse not to be feeling ship shape before your flight.

When researching Gatwick hotels, location, convenience and price are often the main criteria for deciding which Gatwick Airport hotel to give your custom to. We agree that those are indeed important criteria, however we don’t think they are necessarily the only criteria that should be used. Particularly if, like many, you treat your stay at a Gatwick Airport hotel as the first night of your holiday, wouldn’t it be great if you could enjoy an excellent dinner and fine wine the evening before your flight? Well, you can do just that at the Hilton London Gatwick.

For an airport hotel, their selection of restaurants and bars is certainly impressive, with the highlight for dinner being Amy’s Restaurant which features international a la carte dining, including sumptuous starters such as Grilled King Prawn and Avocado Gazpacho, Pan Fried Scallops with Pancetta, or Potato Gnocchi and Wild Mushroom, and delectable main courses which include Spiced Cod Fillet with Curried Risotto, Tandoori Marinated Corn-Fed Chicken Breast, and Loin of Lamb with Sweet Potato Rosti.
A more casual dining experience, as well as breakfast and lunch can be found at the Garden Restaurant, where there is often a dinner buffet as well as an a la carte menu with steaks, curries and pasta dishes.
Pre-dinner drinks or an after dinner port or brandy can be enjoyed in the contemporary Amy’s Bar which also serves snacks and light lunches, while Charlie Fry’s Sports Bar is a great place to unwind with a pint and watch the sport.
Costa Coffee is a great place to grab a quick coffee or tea in the morning before you check-in for your flight, and guests staying on the Executive Floor can take advantage of the free continental breakfast in the Executive Lounge.
All in all, guests staying at the Hilton London Gatwick Airport will have an excellent selection of food to suit any taste and budget, giving you the energy you need before you take off!
