My wife and I had a two day stop over in England. Our general experience with hotels in England has been less than impressive so we were delighted at the Sofitel especially given that it was within the airport complex.
I didn't have high expectations, given the cost, but I was blown away by the facilities and the service. I called for an airport pickup, and a few minutes later, the van arrived. The room I was given was large, clean, and modernized. I got not only the wakeup call I requested, but a follow-up call five minutes before departure time. The van was waiting to take me to the airport.
My only small quibble - the wifi was inconsistent, on and off.
I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

We just needed a hotel before flying from Gatwick and the Ginsborough Lodge was perfect. Close to the train station with a shuttle service to the airport provided free if you booked direct from the hotel's website (something I wish I'd known in advance). The staff were friendly and helpful and the room comfortable. I would happily stay here again.
