If we have enough Tesco Deals we stay "free" at the Hilton attached to the south terminal. Not free of course but currently 3/1 exchange rate. Book direct with Hilton and you don't pay taxes on top. However if I'm paying with real cash we've never beaten the PI opposite the north terminal pricewise.

As others have said don't choose the hotel simply on where you're flying from. Frequent monorail takes a few minutes.

From what i read of your post, and if i were you, i would be booking the Bloc, 100%

Roll out of bed and into departures south

Go to check in, get yr boarding cards, return to yr room for remaining hand luggage etc and then go through security.

Absolutely adore the Sofitel, a more grown up hotel. Do Twilight check in a 5. Then to the Sofitel bar, a couple of relaxing cocktails. A shower then a wonderful meal in the Chinese with my darling husband.

A lovely evening then, next morning straight to the South Terminal.

I always ask for the same room as the room we have over looks the North Terminal and you can see everyone arriving to go on holiday all excited and ready. Love it Love it Love it.

Going in June and can not wait.

The Premier North is fab too, but for us the Sofitel is just a bit more Adult. xx

I booked the Hilton South Terminal for October as I got a deal with my blue light card, it was only 20 more inc breakfast than the Premier Inn north for our dates so with the discount worked out a good deal. It's only somewhere to get our heads down that night!

We left it too late to get a cheapie 35 at thePremier at the North terminal which is walkable last month sobooked the new Travelodge Plus a two minute shuttle ride away. Nice bar and food , even had an Easter egg hunt for the kids... for 28 ... bargain and one of the quietest airport hotels I've ever stayed in. Even though there were lots of guests coming and going at all hours as you'd expect, we didn't hear a thing !
Booked this hotel and meal deal for the last few years. Never had a bad room or meal and look forward to incorporate the stay as part of our holiday. We take and extra bottle of wine and a few cans of beer to make our stay extra enjoyable. 🍷🍻🍷🍻🍷
