Your car will be treated like family
The Ifield Court is no longer available to book. Check out our other Gatwick airport hotel deals.
If you need parking while you're away, you can either leave your car in the Ifield Court hotel car park, or take it to Airparks, a secured car park just outside Gatwick airport grounds.
If you're parking at the hotel, you'll need to leave your keys with reception, as the hotel staff will move your car for you into their long stay car park. When you check in, the hotel will book you a taxi to the airport, as well as a taxi back when you return from holiday. Taxis from the hotel to the airport and vice versa cost £10 for a saloon car, £15 for an estate or £17.50 for an 8-seat mini-van, each way.
If you're leaving your car at Airparks, you'll park at the hotel overnight, and take your car to Airparks in the morning. Airparks is just a mile from the Ifield Court. Turn right out of the hotel, then left onto Bonnetts Lane; you'll see the car park at the bottom of this lane. Turn left onto Charlwood Road and look for the entrance on the right.
Once you've checked in at the car park reception, the car park's transfer bus will take you to whichever terminal you're flying from. The journey to the airport takes about 10 minutes. Keep hold of the ticket you're given when you arrive at the car park - you'll need it when you come back to pick your car up.
The transfer bus back to Airparks leaves from stops 7 and 8 at the South terminal and stop 6 at the North terminal. Take your parking ticket to reception and collect your keys. If youre in a hurry to get home, you can book a Return Greet package and have your car brought to you at the terminal.

What this hotel lacks in size it more than makes up for in charm and character. Set in the heart of the Sussex countryside, you'll feel a million miles away from the airport even though it's just 10 minutes away.
You can check into the hotel from 14:00. Park your car in the hotel's car park overnight (it's included in the price) and then head to reception, where you'll book your taxi transfer to the airport.
Dine on British classics in the hotel's restaurant, which serves from 18:45 to 21.30 daily. You'll find all of your traditional favourites like pie and mash, fish and chips and sirloin steak. Most main meals range from £10 to £15.
The well-stocked bar is charming and cosy, open from serving your pub favourites. The prices are reasonable too - you can get a pint for £3.80, which is very good for a hotel bar.
When it comes to the bedrooms, think family-run guest house - clean, comfortable, light and airy. The family rooms are particularly generous with some rooms sleeping up to six people. The rooms are a little dated and the decor certainly fits with the age of the hotel. They are undergoing a refurbishment at the moment - so watch this space!
Free wifi is available in the public areas and there are plenty of them. There's a home from home feeling watching the TV in the lounge, where you'll find comfy sofas, homely lighting and a gorgeous bay window. You can also enjoy a cup of tea in the romantic, fire-side seating area surrounded by wood-panelled walls, dark wood furniture and beautiful brass ornaments.
In the morning, sit down to a home-cooked, traditional English and continental breakfast, which you can get at a discount if you book it through us in advance. Breakfast starts at 07:00 and finishes at 09:00 but you can get lighter, continental items from 02:00. Add breakfast to your booking before you check out. You'll get a special price and it's one less thing to pay for on the day.
