(2 star hotel)
from the airport
Close to the airport, close to perfect
A short drive from Gatwick's terminals, this friendly, family-run lodge has a genuinely-welcoming feel. The staff couldn't do more to make you feel welcome, with lots of charming, personal touches, from the hotel's own shuttlebus pickup at the airport to the home-cooked breakfasts. With just 22 rooms, the popular Acorn Lodge is a popular hotel at Gatwick airport that fills up quickly, so make sure you book early.

The hotel has recently expanded, adding another nine spacious, comfortable rooms and an outside patio with a barbecue for sitting out in the summertime. Theres a cosy bar and excellent restaurant serving cooked-to-order breakfasts and Mediterranean-influenced dinners, with Turkish dishes a particular speciality. The theme carries through the Acorn Lodges décor, with marble-tiled bathrooms, attractive paintings and samovars dotted around the lobby. Theres a 24-hour pick-up service from the airport just call and a driver will come to collect you in a dedicated minibus. The terminals are just five minutes away.

We recommend the Acorn Lodge for:
Comfort - all rooms are clean and comfortable with springy beds and large, double-glazed windows for sunshine in the day and peace at night.
Convenience - the Acorn Lodge is just five minutes from Gatwicks terminals and theres a dedicated shuttlebus that's easier and cheaper than queuing for a regular bus or booking a taxi.
Parking - an all-inclusive parking deal means you dont have to worry about driving to the airport or using public transport. Note that customer parking is at the nearby Cambridge hotel (see Parking tab for further details).
