from the airport
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.
Everything went according to plan and we found the accommodation and facilities comfortable and to our liking. Free we-fi would have been appreciated.Mr Hayward, 23 Mar, 2015 (5 out of 5)
Staff were welcoming. Room was clean ,beds comfortable and bathroom had bath shower and toiletries.The access to north terminal via a covered walkway makes it our first choice for an overnight stay before we flyMrs Maddison-Robert, 23 Mar, 2015 (5 out of 5)
All went well. The car park is a very uneven place but so busy I expect there would be no room for parking whilst improvements were being carried out!Mr Davis, 22 Mar, 2015 (4 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.
Arrival at the Cambridge Standard Room
Earliest check in time at the Cambridge is 3pm.
Transfers operate to both terminals 24 hours a day, every 30 minutes, take just 10 minutes and cost £3 per person, each way.
Here are the hotel directions:
Exit the M23 at junction 9 and follow the signs for Gatwick airport. At the first roundabout go straight on. At the next roundabout take the last exit towards the A23. At the next roundabout turn right, sign-posted Redhill A23. At the large interchange with a Shell garage in the centre, follow the signs for Redhill A23. The Cambridge Hotel is on the left after a few hundred yards.
Getting to and from LGW airport
The hotel runs a bus to the airport and back 24 hours a day. The bus runs every 30 minutes, on the hour and on the half hour. The bus only has 8 seats and operates on a first come, first serve basis, so you may need to wait to get on. The journey takes around 10 minutes and will cost you £3, each way.
From the airport to the hotel, the bus runs on request only. So when you get back, you'll need to call the hotel to ask for the bus and it'll meet you at the pickup point at the bus stop outside the terminal. If you're at the South terminal, it's bus stop 9 and if it's from the North terminal, it's bus stop 8. When you return, you just need to collect your car and go.
Returning to the Cambridge Standard Room
Latest check out time at the Cambridge Hotel is 11:00.
Transfers operate to both terminals 24 hours a day, every 30 minutes, and take just 10 minutes. They cost £3 per person for the return journey.
