Ok so it’s not a 5 star hotel in Barbados BUT an airport hotel can be just the right start to a holiday.
There’s nothing worse than starting a family holiday all stressed out, tired and late. And in our experience, whenever we’ve had to do super early flights our holidays always began like that. It’s the getting up at a stupid hour, it’s still dark out, the kids are groggy and moody, you can’t find the long term car parking, then you JUST miss the shuttle bus plus it’s all the lugging around of luggage, car seats etc. NOT fun.
This time we decided to stay the night before at the Gatwick Hilton. It was SO worth it. You get to park at the hotel where your car stays til you return from holiday; you have a relaxing night in a hotel; the kids eat for FREE; and all you have to do is walk through a tunnel to get to the airport. The kids loved it. It’s like the holiday begins early.
The Gatwick Hilton do all types of park and stay deals, as do a few other airport hotels. But the key is staying in one where you don’t need the dreaded airport shuttle. Yes it’s a little more than just paying for long term parking but not much. And definitely well worth the extra cost!
