Useful for airport parking with an overnight stay either at start or end of flight. Room was well presented, clean, and the bed comfortable. Remember to add on cost of taxi to and from airport. At time of review this was a special price for hotel guests of £9. each way. Taxi service was quick and efficient.

We only stayed overnight as we were flying from Gatwick the next day. Fine for an overnight stay. Very old fashioned and a bit tired. We slept fine. There was a kettle and tea bags supplied.Bedding was clean. Room was a bit tatty and wardrobe had a wonky door.

This hotel is old and tired. The staff are shocking, not interested in guests just wanted to carry on. Asked for a morning call but they did not do it on the first morning so did not bother to ask for one the second morning. Bathrooms need a good clean tiles dirty and sink took ages to drain, shower very...

Put in a first room where the toilet seat was stained brown and the wallpaper was falling off and uneven. Scratches on every surface. Requested to move rooms which was accommodated efficiently by friendly staff. Moved to a bigger room which was better, but remained tired, old wallpaper, pictures hung in the wrong places in the room, hairs in the...

For a one night stay, for a trip where you plan to be in your room for as little time as possible, for cheap... that's the only time Britannia Lodge/Europa should even be a consideration. Parking at this hotel is an absolute nightmare, where there are literally cars dumped everywhere. To be honest, Europa looks as though it's been a...

When it's cost 40.00 quid you know it's not going to be perfect, but great location for airport, bar is cheap and two great pubs nearby. Buffett food and pub classics food available and yes it's average, rooms a bit dated and a little worse for where in places but 40 quid come on most other places was 80-200 quid....

We stayed at this hotel as part of a coach package. When we pulled into the carpark I remembered it from a previous coach package. The rooms are dirty, dated and this is the same throughout the hotel. The dark wood panelling needs either a proper clean or replacing. The carpets also need replacing they are dirty and threadbare in...

As others have stated, this is not a good place, no bedding (4 hours and 5 trips to reception to sort it!) no bulbs in night lights! And tatty. But if you do book a stop over (can't imagine anyone would stay here more than a night) DO NOT book the food. My pasta salad was so off it had...

So come here for a 1 night stop over with parking for the duration of my holiday. We pre booked the meal and breakfast and was hoping for a nice relaxing night before our flight. The first issue was we had to drive around to find a parking space and ended up putting the car somewhere I am still not...

This is a huge hotel. There is plenty of parking. The entrance is very impressive - big reception and large bar area and mezzanine with seating and the restaurant and a courtyard at the back. Our room was on the ground floor and the window/doors led on to one of the car parks. my first impression of the room was...
