    theres 12 of us going and for a minibus its £350. we live 200 miles away so its gonna be a lot cheaper to just drive if we can get parked.

    What sort of a hotel doesn't have parking?

    Is it worth giving the hotel a bell and asking what they normally recommend for guests?

    I take it you ain't been to blackpool....lol! There's SO many hotels that there's no room for parking, mainly just on street which ain't that cheap.

    I've just come back a couple of weeks ago and our hotel was in the town centre, within the paid for parking zone but if you went a little down the road that stopped and you could park for free, my advice is that you just have to park outside the centre and walk back towards your hotel, not great when its raining as it usually is I've found!

    I was very lucky one of the days I was there as I found a little bit of parking on a street within the town centre that wasn't in a bay and had no regulations at all....bonus!

    When i went i asked the hotal owners if i could use their space behind the hotal and they were nice enough to let me. Then again it was only 1 car and it was a Vx corsa.
