(3 star hotel)
including 8 days parking

Close at hand and easy on foot
You're unlikely to struggle finding a space in the Cambridge hotel car park - there are 600 car parking spaces in a locked compound close to the hotel, protected by cameras and barbed wire.
Basic accommodation but convenient to Gatwick North Terminal with bus transfer. Didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes for a bus either way.Miss Bailey, 03 Mar, 2015 (4 out of 5)
Staff were very helpful. Our flight was delayed. We were unable to get hold of Airport Inn on phone but contacted your chat line and your advisor changed booking for us at no extra charge.Mr Sharpe, 02 Mar, 2015 (5 out of 5)
Staff very helpful. Hotel practically on the doorstep of the airport. Had a good night sleep. Highly recommended. Holidayextras checks in for you therefore checking in is great.Mr Phillips, 02 Mar, 2015 (5 out of 5)
All went very smoothly. The Cambridge Hotel is excellent value for money providing overnight stay and parking for my holiday duration. Very friendly and great transport service between hotel and Gatwick.Mr Allen, 19 Dec, 2014 (5 out of 5)
Booked one nights stay plus carparking at Cambridge hotel. It was excellent. Only thing we thought the menu was a little expensive and could have dine with some light bitesMrs Piper-Wall, 09 Dec, 2014 (5 out of 5)
The system is that after parking next to the hotel to unload your baggage (thankfully, no having to lug it miles, you can drive right up to the entrance) the staff will take your car keys and park your vehicle later in the compound, through a security gate 200 metres away.
It will be moved on the day you return, ready for you in the short-stay parking area next to the hotel. Some guests prefer to hang onto their car keys and there are a limited number of available car spaces next to the hotel.
Extra car parking is charged at an additional £6 per day, and you may request this at the time of booking, or at reception when you arrive.
The grade II listed Cambridge hotel will serve you a little slice of history before you fly. The decor is in keeping with the age of the building but with a modern twist. The public areas are bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows and breathtaking chandeliers. Despite the impressive decor, it's quite modestly sized, making sure it's still utterly cosy and charming.
You can check in from 14:00 and there's plenty to keep you entertained until bed...
Dine on British and European classics in the hotel's restaurant, which serves from 18:00 to 22.30pm daily. All of the dishes are homemade and well thought out. It's not a typical low-cost hotel menu - they really take pride and care in the food that they serve.
You can have three courses for a special price when you book with us, so be sure to add dinner to your booking before you check out. You can have a browse of the set menu once you've booked too; it will really get your taste buds tingling.
The well-stocked bar is charming and cosy, serving typical pub favourites. The prices are reasonable too.
When it comes to the bedrooms, think family-run guest house - clean, comfortable, light and airy. The family rooms are particularly generous with some rooms sleeping up to six people.
You can log onto the internet easily as wifi is free throughout the entire hotel. Ask for the code at reception when you check in.
In the morning, sit down to a home-cooked, traditional English breakfast, which you can get at a discount if you book it through us in advance. Breakfast starts at 07:00 and finishes at 09:00 but you can get lighter, Continental items from 06:00. Add breakfast to your booking before you check out. You'll get a special price and it's one less thing to pay for on the day.
Hints, tips and extra bits:
The Cambridge Hotel is made up of two different buildings; the old hotel and a new building. This package is for a room in the old hotel. If you have mobility problems this is not the hotel for you, all the rooms are upstairs and there is no lift. The hotel are aiming to make the rooms more accessible soon, so watch this space!
