Bus stop at drop off to hotel was inconsiderately a bit of a walk from the hotel. Luckily for us it was a warm dry evening. There are bus stops much closer to the hotel (Sofitel, North terminal, Gatwick), it would have been a nicer experience to be dropped closer with our heavy luggage.

On return, the trip was longer due to picking up people from the other terminal before heading for the car park.

Hotel was really good and very well placed for the airport.

The capital's second-largest international airport is located 29.5 miles south of Central London and 2.7 miles from the Sussex town of Crawley. It has the world’s busiest single-use runway and can handle up to 55 aircraft movements per hour (the owners are currently in the process of applying for permission to build a second runway). Gatwick has two terminals – the North and South – from where more than 34 million passengers fly to around 200 destinations in 90 countries. The airport opened for commercial flights in 1934 – when an air ticket to Paris with the fledgling British Airways would cost around £4 – including first class rail travel from London Victoria. The equivalent journey taken today would cost around £600. Gatwick Airport is owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, who also have a controlling interest in London City and Edinburgh airports.
