Gatwick BLOC, A Hotel Worth Mentioning!
More people are choosing to fly from Gatwick Airport for their holiday in the sun, and it has nothing to do with how great the airport is. Sometimes flying from Gatwick Airport can result in the family holiday being a couple of hundred pounds cheaper. BLOC seem to have realized this fact and have reflected it in their pricing structure.
This airport hotel has rooms starting from £59 per night, which for any hotel is an amazing price. However, as soon as you walk in the hotel you know that it’s a place with a difference. For a start, the 245 room hotel sometimes refers to some of their rooms as “Sleep Haven Zones”.
This Gatwick Airport Hotel does not provide any food, it doesn’t need to! You’re right on the doorstep of all the restaurants you’d ever want and with the hotel’s Just Around the BLOC guide, guests receive exclusive discounts at some of the airport’s best bars, eateries and shops (www.blochotels.com/atbgatwick). The people behind the BLOC hotel have thought of everything that a modern traveller would like and need.
The rooms are very comfortable, and if you like gadgets then you will love this hotel. Almost everything in the room is controlled through a smartphone or tablet, which includes the lighting, the temperature, the HD LED TV and even unlocking the door. Apart from the fantastically named “Sleep Haven Zones” BLOC also offer family rooms, a whole business floor and a Presidential suite.
Some hotel groups may have been content at offering a true technology based hotel at Gatwick airport with superfast free wifi located right in the middle of Gatwick’s South Terminal. However, BLOC seem to have gone that extra mile to please, with things like Egyptian cotton linen, huge beds, monsoon showers. Zenology shower products and full Sky in room packages for executive rooms.
So on check out, after looking at the bill, you may be forgiven for thinking there must have been a mistake – all of that for only £59 ! Here at UK Airport Car Parks we feel that BLOC are making a true statement by offering high end luxury at affordable prices alongside exceptional convenience.
The BLOC hotel has become one of the main airport hotels for people to stay in at Gatwick’s South terminal , so it is important to book early. This makes even more sense as many of the rooms have fantastic runway views and we are sure these are the first to get snapped up.
A truly innovative concept hotel from technology and design to location and convenience.
Here at UKACP we love place like this, something a bit different and high tech!
