Premier Inn hotels at Gatwick Airport

Make an informed choice of budget hotel at Gatwick Airport


Premier Inn Gatwick North Terminal

Premier Inn Gatwick North Terminal

Of the budget hotel chains, Premier Inn is the largest in the UK and is thought of as having high quality relative to its rivals. Add competitive pricing and the great value offered and it is no wonder that many people always check out the Premier Inn option.

 

At Gatwick Airport, Premier Inn has four hotels that service Gatwick Airport, two of which you can walk to the North Terminal at Gatwick from. The Premier inn Gatwick South and Premier Inn Manor Royal do not have airport shuttles, though public buses are available between both and Gatwick Airport passenger terminals.

 

At Gatwick Airport the most convenient hotel is the Premier Inn Gatwick North Terminal, a very large 600 plus bedroom hotel located next to the North Terminal at Gatwick. This is also one of Gatwick's newest hotels opened in late 2012. From the North Terminal there are free shuttle trains every couple of minutes to the South Terminal.


Compared to the other Premier Inn hotels at Gatwick you do pay a small price premium for this convenience.

So taking each Premier Inn one by one:

 

  • Premier Inn Gatwick North Terminal - As its name implies, this Premier Inn is close to the North Terminal, right next door in fact. The Premier Inn Gatwick North Terminal is the only budget hotel that you can easily walk to the passenger terminals from. If you are using the South Terminal at Gatwick, there is a free shuttle train between North and South terminal that runs every couple of minutes. This Premier Inn is much larger than the other Premier Inn properties at Gatwick with 630 rooms and is the newest Premier Inn as well, opened only in late in 2012.

Premier Inn Gatwick Airport South Pub

  • Premier Inn Gatwick Airport Way - Until the new Premier Inn Gatwick North Terminal opened in 2012, this was the most central Premier Inn at Gatwick. It is possible to walk from this hotel to the North Terminal in 5 to 10 minutes with luggage, though most people take the shuttle bus that is provided, (though not complementary). Rates are cheaper than the North Terminal hotel and the hotel has its own sizable car park and offers hotel and long term parking deals.

     

  • Premier Inn Gatwick South - Located 2 miles south of the Gatwick terminals. As you drive into the entrance you might wonder whether you have the right hotel with extensive grounds/parkland, an old manor house (the 14th-century Gatwick Manor) used as a restaurant and pub. It has an olde worlde feel with duck pond making it an idyllic place during fine weather. The modern accommodation block is at the rear of the pub/restaurant. No bus shuttle links the hotel to Gatwick Airport passenger terminals, though there is a public bus service.

     

  • Premier Inn Gatwick Manor Royal - Located just a few hundred yards from the Premier Inn Gatwick South but is very different. Situated

    in an industrial estate with airline businesses all around the hotel is a large modern block on the edge of the town of Crawley, the largest town in the Gatwick area. Rates here reflect the more business bias of its clientèle with cheap rates at the weekend and more expensive rates during the working week. No bus shuttle links the hotel to Gatwick Airport passenger terminals, though there is a public bus service.

Travelodge Central Gatwick Airport - often cheapest hotel rooms at Gatwick Airport

Travelodge Central Gatwick Airport

Travelodge is the second largest chain in the UK offering budget hotels. Travelodge properties are normally more basic than the Premier Inn hotels and are normally correspondingly cheaper. So called Saver Rates, very deep discounted hotel rooms are often available at Travelodge Gatwick if you purchase online well in advance.


The Travelodge Gatwick Central is a very large hotel which for the last few decades was a full service 4 star hotel known for much of its time as the Renaissance Hotel Gatwick Airport. Gone are all the spacious lounges and gourmet restaurants, their space taken by more low priced Gatwick hotel rooms. The Travelodge itself is one of the closest off airport hotels to the passenger terminals and is linked by a shuttle bus.
