    Ok we have finally got to the day that the hotels are available to book on Holiday Extras.:thumbsup:

    We are staying for 1 night on the 9th before we fly on 10th August and the price includes return coach travel from Plymouth.Just me and the 2 kids.

    However i can't decide between the two.We have stayed at the Hilton before but our room wasn't up to much.

    Sofitel is £168.10
    Hilton is £139.60

    Can i have people's opinions on the 2 to help me decide please?

    Well you have stayed at the Hilton before so you know what it's like, family stayed at the Sofitel last year and really liked it. There isn't a great price difference between the two in the big scheme of things.

    Tbh I would probably go for the Hilton just because I know how it all works. What time do you expect to get there? How much time will you actually spend in the room?

    The coach should get to Gatwick South Terminal at 4pm so we will go straight to Twilight checkin like last time and be in the room by 5pm ready to go out and cause havoc at the airport!

    I didn't realise that the coach drops of at the airport rather than the hotel - that is better at least you can get rid of the cases straight away :yes:

    Hilton is £139.60

    Only stayed at the Hilton. Very convienent, breakfast was excellent and so easy to walk to departures. Besides you would have $40 extra to spend in Disney.
