The Sofitel is lovely, as you probably know what you've said and is always my first choice. Bloc does look intriguing, due to the runway views, and I'd be tempted to give it a go for that reason.
Agree with this. I thought I would stop using Sofitel when BA changed terminals, but it is literally three minutes away, so we stick to Sofitel.

However you might want to check maximum occupancy per family room if you have 4 children
Hi Persnicketty, thankfully the 4 kids are not ours LOL they are two sets of brothers so they will be split up with their mums and dads. When they get together its been likened to herding cats

Loved the bloc. We stayed last year. The shower is amazing! Yes the room is small (very) but it was very cozy. I missed having tea and coffee making facilities though. But would book it again if flying from Gatwick.

I liked it for the (at least) half hour extra in bed! We had two nights and found the wet room a bit of a faff. I had read this before, so we took an 80p squeegee from Ikea with us and this really helped keep things dry.

We also liked that the bed was really long - maybe 7 feet. It meant that DH could crawl out the bottom of the bed without disturbing me.
