    Sorry no, we always stay at the Hilton, mainly for the convenience and in Chris' case the breakfast

    Have heard good reviews but never stayed there.

    We used the travelodge last time for 23 - it was hysterical.

    We're going to use Premier Inn next year.

    there's a good Premier inn that we use when visiting family - Gatwick Manor Royal, very clean, modern and friendly staff. Reason for Sofitel is that Caitlin and i are going to go down on the train on Friday afternoon, our plane goes from the North Terminal so we can do twilight check in before we go to the hotel then don't need to pay for a taxi/bus the next morning. With Petrol being what it is it's cheaper for us to do this and about half the time to get there on a Friday!

    I like your way of thinking

    Our holiday starts the moment we leave home, so the Hilton stay is all part of it for us :D I did originally have the Premier Inn booked, but we got a very good government rate for the Hilton so I booked it :D
