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 fantastic Acorn Lodge Gatwick is a popular hotel at Gatwick airport that fills up quickly, so make sure you book early.
Antique decorations, old-fashioned personal service
I had problems initially booking online, it took payment but website just in loop when confirming. However, all sorted over phone. We were delayed travelling to hotel in evening and got there very late, very worrying when we got there to be told hotel had not received our booking. So we had visions of having to find someone else in early hours. The hotel (Acorn Lodge) had 1 room left and were very helpful and sorted. However, this has rocked confidence about using service. If height of summer we could have been placed in difficult situation. So would like to understand what went wrong - everything else very smoothMr Sheppard (Acorn Lodge)

The hotel has recently expanded, adding another nine spacious, comfortable rooms and an outside patio with a barbecue for sitting out in the summertime. Theres 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 Lodges décor, with marble-tiled bathrooms, attractive paintings and samovars dotted around the lobby. Theres 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.

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 Gatwicks terminals and theres a dedicated shuttlebus that's easier and cheaper than queuing for a regular bus or booking a taxi.
