- At the first roundabout take the second exit, signposted South terminal, onto the A23 Airport Way.

If you're travelling to the hotel by train the hotel is about half a mile from Horley train station. It also has its own 24-hour shuttle bus to and from Gatwick Airport, which runs on demand. Just give the hotel a call 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.


The Gatwick Acorn Lodge prides itself on its Mediterranean menu - and it's easy to see why. Turkish, French and Italian influences combine to create a unique, extensive and delicious-sounding range of freshly-cooked dishes. This is a menu which manages to make the much-maligned kebab sound classy.
How about a plate of mezze to start, with taramasalata, houmous, feta cheese, olives, tzatziki and Mediterranean salad? And then oven-baked sole and prawns with fennel risotto, mushrooms and tomatoes in a saffron lobster sauce? The desserts vary each day - which, for the purposes of keeping your excitement levels down as you read this, is probably just as well.
The menu features a huge selection of steaks, as well as meat, fish and seafood dishes, vegetarian options, pasta dishes and yes, chicken and shish kebabs. A la carte prices start from £4.25 for a starter and range from £8 to £18.95 for a main. There are also two three-course set menus, one for £19.95 and one for £21.95, both with a choice of four starters and four mains.
There's a great value kids' menu too - two courses for just £5.95. The options on offer include spaghetti bolognese, sausage, egg and chips and chicken burgers, plus dessert.
Continental breakfast includes cereal, toast and juice.

On your departure

You must check out by 11am.

A taxi to the airport takes around 5 minutes and costs £15-20 each way.
