My wife and I stayed here because we thought it offered us the convenience for an early flight the next morning and also booked a further night for our return which was a late arrival back into Gatwick. One of the, so I thought, advantages was the bus transfer from the hotel to Gatwick being advertised as 24 hour service.... More

Basic but pleasant hotel. Little Bit dated but that's what you get with brittannia. Loads of room for parking. The rooms itself are dated and could do with a refit, but for £35 a night I'm not really bothered about That as long as it's clean and you have clean towels. This time in staying stayed on the first floor... More

Should have stayed here for two nights. One before, and one after our holiday. Thankfully for the one before we were transfered to another hotel, as our room wasn't available (Thank god). We were offered a free up grade to the main hotel as compensation. Well, we have stayed in some poor hotels, but this took the biscuit. Everything about... More

For £29 you get what you would expect. Stayed here on the 9th of December, at check in we were greeted by a nice women we were told where our rooms are, and what restaurants are near. Our rooms were simple, the beds were extremely hard and very uncomfortable other than that they were fine. We had the very overpriced... More

I read the reviews on Tripadvisor but chose the Lodge based on price. What a mistake! Glad that there was regular transport to and from the Airport outside the Europa Hotel. However, that will not make up for the awful experience. I checked in at the busy Hotel Europa's reception as instructed and found the staff polite and attentive. However,... More

Mattress was like concrete. I attempted to fold the comforter in half and sleep on top of that but didn't help 4 hours sleep in total. Ordered... More

This hotel is absolutely the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, it is filthy, smelling, hairy, sticky, falling apart and a fire waiting to happen. If you feel like giving it a go, please make sure that you are up to date with your Tetanus vaccinations. I had booked this online as we were attending a wedding near and... More
