Check in was straightforward then we had to go past a bar area that stank of smoke. No smoking ?? The room was shabby and the bathroom needed a total revamp. The tiles were mouldy and it was pretty filthy. DInner was very poor, The breakfast was ok. I would not recommend it or stay there again.

We booked this through Holiday Extras to avoid an early morning drive around the M25 to catch a flight out of Gatwick. Having booked, I then checked the reviews on TripAdvisor (sorry TA, I know we are supposed to do that the other way around!) and was astonished how negative many of them were - to the point that we...

We decided to book a night in Britannia hotel the night we arrived back from our holiday rather than face the long journey Back to somerset in early hours of morning. Firstly they put us in Britannia lodge which is not what we paid for, we walked over to the lodge and entered out first room, basic is a understatement;... More

We stayed here before flying out of Gatwick taking advantage of the room plus 8 days parking rate. The value for money is astounding, we booked on the morning of our stay due to a change of plans and couldn't believe our luck at finding they had a family room available. The carpark is busy but the staff couldn't do... More

We complained and they were happy for us to change rooms... We went into the room... More

The whole hotel is outdated, the hotel is ran down, my room had no decent lighting, broken double doors with a lovely view of a car park, broken wardrobe and a very unclean bathroom. The only clean thing in the room were the bed sheets. There were many other problems.

This is a basic airport hotel. Don't expect luxury. I paid £36.50 for a single room for one night before my early morning flight. There is a hotel bus costing £3.50 one way which starts at 0530 hrs and seems to be reliable. I got in by taxi and that cost me £17.50. The room and the bathroom were clean.... More

Due to a very early flight from Gatwick, I needed to book a room locally and this was done through my travel agent. The room was £35, single troom with transfer to the airport. I did not realise just how far from the airport this hotel is - the last on the transfer round! Not ideal when you want to... More

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
