Hi Craig I'm glad you were mostly happy with your stay. Some of our rooms are compact, the Sleep and Vista rooms, and our room rates reflect this, starting at just £89. We have larger room types, the Aspire and VIP rooms for example, all available to see across all our booking platforms and maybe suitable if you're looking for something more spacious. Unfortunately, quite a few of the outlets in the South Terminal are currently shut but we update our website regularly so you can see what's open and what's not. We're hoping the airport will be back to normal before too long. Thanks for the positive comments, it's always great for the wonderful Reception team to get a mention. I hope we cam welcome you back to Bloc in the future. Best wishes Sarah

Absolutely brilliant, what can I say, outstanding customer service at the Gatwick hotel. Through the COVID crisis my booking was cancelled and Leticia helped me rebook for next year with ease. Thank you so much :)

By far, this was the best airport hotel i've ever stayed in. We were lucky enough to experience the Runway Suite. What can I say, this room is a dream if you love to watch the planes at the airport. Panoramic views of the whole runway was a great way to get in the holiday spirit. The room was spacious, the bed was incredibly comfy, and it had all the amenities needed. The power shower was great for that early wake up call to catch your flight. Also, you control everything from your phone (Smart Control), lights, TV, blinds... very High Tec. Lovely staff at check in, a very smooth stay! Would highly recommend!

The Runway Suite's a fantastic treat before a flight and I'm so pleased staying with us was 'a great way to get into the holiday spirit', that's exactly what we aim for all our guests to feel. Looking forward to welcoming you back next time you're flying through Gatwick. With all best wishes Sarah

All I can say is WOW. We were lucky enough to stay in the Runway Suite and it was incredible. The views, the size of the room, the bathroom, the comfy bed, everything about it was amazing and for a pre-flight stay it was perfect. Got there as early as we could to enjoy the sunset and the views and it was just beautiful.
