Bonjour, Due to recent weather conditions a concern has been raised by Gatwick airport who own the tunnel which is currently being investigated. Once again we sincerely apologise and know this is an inconvenience and should not have happened. We have additional staff on hand to assist all our guests during this time and Gatwick airport maintenance team is currently working on it.

Staying here in June prior to flying. What's the best way to get in to London for the night. Thanks
Bonjour Mazziem28, Thank you so much for your query. The best way to get to London is by train, which is from the South Terminal as we are located at the North Terminal. There is a shuttle that runs 24/7 between the 2 Terminals every 3-5 mins. You can take trains to London Victoria or London Bridge every 10-15 mins. Please feel free to contact us for any further details. Best regards, Mayssar Salameh Guest Relations Manager
