(4 star hotel)
from the airport
All done on site
You can leave your car in the car park at the Copthorne Hotel Effingham Gatwick while you're on holiday - very many guests do. There's always plenty of parking space. You'll just need to leave your car keys with reception, and fill in a form with your details, then staff will move your car to the secured part of the car park. You can get the hotel's shuttle bus or a taxi to the airport, and back again to pick your car up when you return.
One thing we were told about at reception was that youll be advised not to leave your keys at the desk until right before you take the transfer bus to the airport. More than once a guest has decided that something in the car has to be retrieved and then discovered that its already been parked some distance from the main hotel. Thats not whats needed just before flying off on your hols.
As an alternative, HolidayExtras.com offers a parking package combining a night at the Effingham with parking at the airport's own official car parks. These car parks, one at each terminal, are just a five-minute hop on a bus from departures and have CCTV, fences and regular patrols to keep your car safe.
