Problems booking hotel and parking for gatwick!!!!

HI im trying to book a nights stay before we fly out from gatwick on the 10th dec and we come back on the 26th dec but we needed to leave the car at the hotel!! I have emailed quite a few and they say they are closed boxing day morning? so this really doesnt help as we fly backat 630 in the morning and dont want to wait around for hours as we have a long trip back home!!!

Can anyone help with hotels or any other suggestions please?

Try the Sofitel. It is attached to one of the terminals and offers a parking service which we have used with no problem, I wouldn't expect it to be closed for Christmas.

< they say they are closed boxing day morning >

How do you mean "closed"? Aren't they accepting guests for the night of the 25th?

Well I emailed asking a few other question asking about transfers and asking if it would be double time on Boxing Day and they said they are closed! To which I replied with how would I get my car and its lucky I didn't just go a head and book it then ! They said that we would be able to pick car up in the afternoon but this really isn't any help to us

Who are you asking, the hotel or a car park company? I wouldn't think the hotel would be closed. Do you have to leave the car at the hotel, APH do hotel/parking packages and I just did a test booking and they didn't appear to say anything about no transport on the 26th. Okay they are a few miles away but I have used them before without any problems.

I done it on booking.com which comes up with hotels and parking at the hotels that was with waterhall house not a big chain so maybe that's why

You do not need transfers if using the Sofitel -its an easy walk as its attached to the terminal

The hotels that are the airport don't seem to have parking on the website that I went on but maybe if I rang they would be able to help out with this? Also we don't want anything to much over 130 pounds
