First Yotel just opened at Gatwick

Invented by Simon Woodroffe, founder of the Yo’Sushi chain of restaurants, the initial Yotel, complete with 46 cabins, was just launched at Gatwick's south terminal. It will be followed by other Yotels at Heathrow and Stansted and then at major international airports in cities across the world. A sophisticated version of the Japanese capsule hotels, the concept is a mix of design features of a first-class British Airways bed and a racing yacht. A standard cabin costs £25 for four hours or £55 overnight. Along with the bed there comes a flat-screen TV, internet access and a "galley" cabin crew on hand providing snacks.
