Close in on a good meal
The Acorn Lodge is rightly proud of its Melissa restaurant, which serves freshly-prepared Mediterranean-style dishes. The restaurant, which looks out onto the patio garden, is open for breakfast from 6am to 9am, and again for dinner from 6pm to 9.30pm.
- Breakfast: 6am to 9am
- Dinner: 6pm to 9.30pm
Breakfast - Get your day off to a good start with cereal, juice and a fresh-brewed tea or coffee, while the chef gets busy in the kitchen preparing you a hearty English or vegetarian breakfast. We found it hot, fresh and tasty and the portions very generous! And the best news is, it's all free.
Dinner - For dinner, the a la carte menu features French, Italian and Turkish cuisine. Whether youre in the mood for authentic, home-made shish kebabs, roast lamb shank or fresh Dover Sole, theres something here thats bound to tempt you. Starters cost around £5 and main courses start at £8 and go up to £18.50 for seafood dishes. Theres over twenty main courses to choose from and we thought the food looked and smelled fantastic. Leave space for dessert if you can, theres a daily selection of mouth-watering puddings.
A very smooth stay. All the facilities were as promised, with a good breakfast next morning. Very pleasant staff.Mrs Scraton (Gatwick Acorn Lodge)
Everything went very smoothly. My flight was delayed by 5 hours on the return trip but there was no quibbling about my late arrival back to pick up my carMr Scattergood (Gatwick Acorn Lodge)

Booking process good. Transfer and pick up to airport excellent. Unfortunately hotel was VERY noisy and uncomfortable.Mrs Smith (Gatwick Acorn Lodge)
Bus to airport 20 mins late so I needed to flag down a cab, complaints to hotel about this fell on deaf ears, meaning they didnt care at all! Still not got my £4 I paid to hotel for this transfer.Miss Jenkinson (Gatwick Acorn Lodge)
Food and drinks in hotel crazily expensive also! I guess if you book the cheapest deal you get rubbish service; lesson learnt.

If youre overwhelmed by choice, try the £22 set menu with a choice of four starters and four main courses, plus dessert of the day and coffee. A selection of wines to complement your dinner is available by the bottle ask the chef for recommendations and the house wines are also available by the glass.
