Additional Notes

Reviews

I am sorry to say that I was very unimpressed with this hotel. The only reason for booking was to park my car near Gatwick whilst on I was on holiday but when I arrived there were absolutely no parking spaces available and the car parking areas around the hotel were chaotic and clearly hugely over-subscribed. I had to move my car at dawn next morning from the very unsafe position I had been forced to leave it in overnight. Only then did I manage to find a space I could feel any confidence in to leave the car whilst I was away, but I remained concerned that it was at potential risk from the chaotic parking forced on other car drivers trying to find spaces while I was away. The room we were allocated was also very sub-standard, with a bathroom sink that did not drain properly and an electric socket that was hanging from the wall in a very unsafe condition. This is the sort of thing one might expect in a Third World country but not in a major hotel next to one of London's principal international airports! Most astonishing of all was that the connecting door between our room and the adjacent room could not be locked in any way and at one stage after we had checked into our room, we discovered another family inside our room having come through from next door, under the impression that the beds in our room were part of their room's facilities! The reception desk eventually sorted out this mess by re-allocating the other family a different room but we still could not lock the intervening door because the locking mechanism on the door was completely missing! My overall impression was of a very poorly maintained premises, scruffy and badly run and (puzzlingly) massively over-subscribed. I will never stay there again.

Stayed here on 6th July enjoyed a good evening meal and cooked breakfast. Very good range of food, generous servings and helpful staff. We had a disabled room so very comfortable ground floor access. A very easy hotel to stay in driving wise as two minutes from M23 so very easy drive wise. The taxi collection was also efficient and a helpful polite driver who arrived promptly. We will definitely stay again on future flights out of gatwick airport .

Hotel was clean and staff very friendly however needs a considerable amount of updating as rooms very dated! We stayed on a particularly hot evening and air con didn't work so unfortunately we had a terrible nights sleep which was a real shame to begin the holiday. Shower also lacked any kind of water pressure so found we were left with a dribble. We regrettably will not be returning however purely due to the need of a refurb not anything else.

The Europa hotel is now very "tired" and in need of reburishment! The food offered for dinner also needs improving the buffet is not very interesting and I feel poor value. and that is your only choice, having said that we were only there for one night as are most people I would suspect so I guess they aren't too bothered in improving anything!

The car parking at this hotel was a nightmare. When we eventually found one, we booked in and the reception staff were very polite and helpful. Our room was an adjoining room , which was obviously locked as there was only 2 of us but it meant we could her everything happening in the other room. We got little sleep!
