Additional Notes

Reviews

Booked 2 x 5 bed family rooms which actually only had 4 beds in each. 2 x singles plus a set of bunk beds. However we top n tailed a 3 and 4 year old in one bed and used a travel cot supplied by hotel for youngest member of our group so it worked out fine. Room was very good size but bit shabby in places. Very adequate for one short night though as we were up in middle of night to take pre-booked taxis to airport at 3.30am. Hotel reception arranged the taxis for us. Beware of extra costs for this. Taxi is £9 or £13 each way depending on group size. We booked hotel, airport parking and dinner option. We were very happy with all elements and it was at a very good price. Plenty of choice at buffet restaurant including full carvery. Yum yum! Great start to out holiday and we even got to drop our cases at airport night before we travelled. Bonus!

only problem we had was confusion on pick up point for north terminal we waited by hotel and the taxi reg came through while we were all waiting in the rain

The room they gave us was very cold and draughty, we had to turn the radiator on ourselves and it took sometime for the room to warm up. The most critical point was when, in the early hours of the morning, my wife tried to have a shower and she got burnt. No way you could control the water temperature, either very hot or freezing cold. She had to dry herself without been able to rinse. I was unable to have a shower myself. It was a very dangerous situation, a little child could have been severely burnt. We had an early flight and we could only report this to the front desk before leaving. he didn't seem too bothered by our complaint.

We had stayed before and enjoyed it, so happy to stay again, however we were not informed that the hotel was being used for accommodation for those seeking shelter. It just ruined the whole experience for us, and felt a bit strange. However these things need to be done, so can't grumble, we are privileged to be able to live freely and travel, and are aware that I guess hotels like this will be used for such during the current time. Room was smaller for four of us than my husband and I had for two but adequate. Dinner was very nice, buffet style and plentiful. Quick check in.

top class for what we needed

My husband and I have been going to this hotel for approx. eight years and have never had any problems until recently. At first there was always a welcoming out of season fire to warm the bar area, biscuits and hot chocolate in the rooms and a reasonable transfer system to the airport. All this has now gone. We went to the Europa this January, no fire and it was cold, apparently the chimney has been condemned. The Hotel was full of migrant men awaiting Government assessment, they were sprawled all over the couches sleeping in the bar lounge area and it was impossible to get a decent seat. We felt very uncomfortable, not to mention threatened. The bar meal we ordered was cold and we could not get out of this area quick enough. The wall paper was hanging off the walls in our room quite badly. Our room was cold as the heating went off on a timer. Morale seemed poor with staff who pointed out that no maintenance was being done on the hotel as they believed it was going to be sold for development. Would we ever go back there - NOT ON YOUR LIFE.

I was very disappointed with our overnight stay as the photos on the website showed a light airy clean hotel which was far from the truth. Thankfully I only had to stay one night otherwise I would have looked for alternative accommodation. The entire hotel looked dated and tired with staff attitudes to match. One couple made a complaint about the substandard food they'd received and instead of an apology the barman was rude and abrupt with them which wasn't what you wanted to hear in a public area with lots of guests around. The bedding was clean but he room needed a good vacuum and there were large dustballs behind the bathroom door. On top of that the neighbours were clearly up for partyng and we were kept awake from 12.30am until we had to get up at 3.45am - not pleasant! The shower over the bath was rusted and the dirt/mildew in the grouting was very off putting. The only good thing I will say is that the reception staff were very helpful and apologetic and dare I say almost embarrassed about the complaints - as if they had heard them many times before! I was grateful that the parking was ok for my 10 day holiday and felt fairly secure.

Very nice service, good hotel, comfortable. In need of some TLC/maintenance but good for a night either end of a holiday.
