Ramada Encore We were sold the hotel and park as walking distance to the airport. When you get to the hotel they suggest you use the mono rail or a taxi. We used a taxi to get to the airport as it was too early for the mono rail. We had been expecting to walk . It is at least a 40 minute walk.
The directions on the way back from the airport were very poor, this was not helped by the information desk at the airport not knowing where the mono rail runs.

No. 1 lounge - North terminal The rail tickets were a great option however they couldnt be read in the Gatwick express scanner, a staff member had to let you through. The hotel was right opposite the North terminal & very good value for money.

Again - excellent value for overnight stay and 15 nights parking.We were picked up by the Crowne PLaza people from the rail station - very easy - and the guy drove us directly to our car and gave us an exit ticket. Couldn't have been easier.

Hilton Metropole Great price £94 for 15 nights parking and a night at The Hilton NEC. Transfers via hotel mini-bus and monorail a great start/finish to holiday and back on road after holiday much quicker than using normal parking/bus xfer etc.
Mr Eggleton 24 Sep, 2012 ( out of 5)
Summer Special Only problem was when we came back plane was diverted back to South Terminal instead of North Terminal, but there wasn't anything on the ticket to say if this happens get Monorail back to North terminal, so I had to phone to check and then the bus stop is different number to that printed on ticket.

Mrs Nicholls 12 Aug, 2012 ( out of 5)
APL Very smooth process to and from Liverpool Airport and the same cost as the long-stay car park. So no long trailing of cases to the terminal in bad weather. Would certainly use you again.
