(4 star hotel)
from the airport
A safe spot, near the entrance
There's a plentiful supply of parking spaces at the Novotel hotel, all a short walk away from the main entrance. Surrounding the car park is a high, metal fence to keep your car secured and theres a barrier at the entrance.
Just pull up at the barrier, take a ticket and find a space. Guests can leave their car here for the duration of their holiday. To reach the airport from the hotel, the Heathrow Hoppa bus will take you for £4 one way, and children up to 15 travel free. The bus runs every 20 minutes between 4.42am and 3.42pm, every 25 minutes from 4:10pm and every half an hour from 9.38pm to 11.38pm.
If you decide to park your car elsewhere, and only leave your car at the hotel for the night of your stay, you will need to take your ticket to reception to have it validated. Parking is charged at £10 a night. Once paid, you'll receive a ticket to get out of the car park and can drive to the airport to start your holiday.
