I thoroughly enjoyed my second stay at Bloc Gatwick. Bloc offers a no fuss but extremely comfortable hotel stay. Particular highlights are the cleanliness of the rooms, very fluffy towels, wonderful showers, noise proof rooms and high quality mattresses that ensure you have a

What a lovely review of BLOC Hotel Gatwick, thank you so much, it really is appreciated. I'm delighted that you had such a great stay with us at BLOC Hotel Gatwick and have such high praise for everything that you found here. We really want every guest to have the experience that you did and have tried to think of providing all those things that you really need for a night at the airport, without including any of those things that are superfluous, but you often end up paying for in more traditional airport hotels. It's particularly gratifying that you're a returning guest and have nothing but kind words to stay about our wonderful staff team. Diego and Sanford will be really pleased to have got a name check and such high praise for their 'professionalism and attentiveness'. Next time you're planning on booking, do message our Guest Relations Officer thomas@blochotels.com as he'd like to thank you personally for your loyalty to BLOC and see if he can do something to help make your next stay at BLOC Hotel Gatwick even better. With kindest regards Sarah O.

I'm so pleased that you had the exceptional night here at BLOC that we want all our guests to have. Our location right in the middle of the South Terminal does give us a massive advantage over the other, off-site airport hotels. As you point out, it's only 5 minutes on the shuttle to the North Terminal and you have all the facilities of the airport that you can want, right on our doorstep. Many thanks for recommending BLOC for both business travellers and early starts from Gatwick, we're also perfect for a night after a late arrival before heading home in the morning. We look forward to welcoming you back to BLOC again soon. With best wishes Sarah O. Guest Relations

Used this hotel as was flying from the South Terminal. Booked with a parking package. Easy to use , easy check in. Used the Wetherspoons before security for a drink and some food. Will use again if the price is right.

A short but sweet review for BLOC, thank you very much. The valet parking option that BLOC offers makes a massive difference to the ease with which you can access the airport if you've driven here. You just go straight to the short stay car park at the South Terminal, leave your car and keys there and make your way to BLOC through the terminal towards Departures. As part of the deal you also get premium security passes which makes checking-in for your flight that much quicker. When you get back from your trip your car is ready and waiting for you, no buses, taxis or transfers required. I'm thrilled that you'll be back to stay at BLOC in the future, for our best rates always book directly with our in-house Reservations team who'll always be happy to help you. With kindest regards Sarah O.

... and ended up booking a night at this hotel, that I wouldn't have normally chosen as a bit above my budget. The location is perfect, but ironically hard to find (very few signs, not big enough). Checking in took less than 5 minutes, and once i found the room and got in, the

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us at BLOC Hotel Gatwick. We like to think that BLOC is a great option for almost any budget with our day-let rooms starting at just 39GBP. I'm sorry if the signage wasn't great, we're constantly talking to Gatwick Airports Limited about this as it's not something that we have any control over. We usually just let people know that we're in the South Terminal immediately next to security for Departures. There's space under all the King-sized beds for two large suitcases, and space under the bedside table for hand luggage, so we like to think most people will find that they can store everything or their overnight stay. Not everyone is a fan of our wet-room which is what it says on the tin and does get wet! Almost all our guests love the fact that there's both an overhead monsoon shower as well as a hand-held wall-mounted nozzle, both perfect for a refreshing and invigorating shower to get you going for an early start. I hope you had a great night's sleep and that you'll be back to stay at BLOC next time you have a flight out of Gatwick. Best wishes Sarah O. Guest Relations

It’s a *really* quick trip on the monorail

The package was a good idea and a very convenient location, parking worked perfectly, the trouble was the hotel, where everything is controlled by a tablet in the room, and the internet failed (the staff including the apparent manager didn’t know how to reset it) so we couldn’t close the blind or control the lights and had no air con so it got very hot in the small rooms. Would have been great if all had worked, and who sleeps before a holiday anyway?

Is there a door on the shower/toilet room?
Yes but no shower curtain so expect things to get a bit wet

"You can get a room with a window/ view at Bloc but I believe at extra cost"
"the windowless room was good for sleeping when jet lagged."
"Cheap rooms without a window are perfectly ok if you are arriving late and leaving early"
"Avoid smaller rooms (windowless) is you tend to feel claustrophobic in a small space. Otherwise convenient, quiet and good value."
"Look at the website then choose a room, everything is explained clearly. Remember this is not a 5 star hotel,it is not meant to be."
US$92 - US$149 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
