We got to our room and it was dark, old fashioned and smelt of BO and cigarettes!!!we then went into the bathroom and the toilet seat was on the floor... 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The whole hotel is outdated, the hotel is ran down, my room had no decent lighting, broken double doors with a lovely view of a car park, broken wardrobe and a very unclean bathroom.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

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

Rooms was dirty looks like it has never been cleaned. Food was terrible I would not let my dogs stay here. This hotel looks like it should be abroad some where but it is not worth the space it take up in the uk We stayed as part of a national holiday tour so it was very cheap. Wish we... 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
