The Acorn Lodge Gatwick Hotel

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. There’s 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 Lodge’s décor, with marble-tiled bathrooms, attractive paintings and samovars dotted around the lobby. There’s 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.

All the little things, included in the price

All rooms have an en suite bath or shower room and television. Wifi access is free for all guests and available in the public areas and most rooms. There are twin, double and family rooms (with children’s bunk beds) available. Breakfast is included in the price and, best of all, you can combine your stay with secured parking at the nearby Cambridge Hotel. Acorn Lodge is a great place to get your holiday off to a relaxed start.

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 Gatwick’s terminals and there’s 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 don’t 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).
