Secured parking, a stone's throw away
Theres limited on-site parking at Gatwick Acorn Lodge, so most guests park at the secured, 300-space car park at the Acorn Lodges nearby sister hotel, the Cambridge. The Acorn Lodges own insured drivers can transfer the car to the Cambridge for you and bring it back on your return.
The car park is gated, with attendants during the daytime and 24-hour security, so you can be sure of your vehicles safety. Just hand your keys in to a member of staff and let them do the rest.
