(3 star hotel)
including 8 days parking
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.
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.

Getting to and from Gatwick airport
On the day of your stay:
1. Drive to the Cambridge - your confirmation will include driving directions and a postcode for satnavs.
2. Park in the hotel car park and head inside to check in.
3. You’ll need to leave your keys with the hotel so your car can be moved to a secured car park close to the hotel while you’re away.
Getting from the hotel to the airport:
- It’s 10-minutes on the hotel’s bus to both terminals.
- The hotel runs a 24-hour transfer bus to and from the airport.
- Transfers cost £3 per person each way.
- We recommend leaving plenty of time to transfer in the morning as the bus only has 8 seats and operates on a first come, first served basis.
1. Collect your luggage, then head outside to the pick-up point - it’s bus stop 9 at the south terminal and bus stop 8 at the north terminal.
2. Call the hotel and request your transfer back to your car; the number will be on your confirmation.
3. Pick up your keys from reception and drive home.
