(3 star hotel)
from the airport
Three-star comfort at a budget price
Enjoy three-star hotel facilities at super-value prices with a stay at the Britannia Lodge a popular choice thats often full, so book early! The Britannia Lodge is in the grounds of the Europa hotel, which is just off the M23 - and only five miles from Gatwicks terminals. The 42 rooms in the annexe building are clean and bright with new furniture and crisp bedlinen, and best of all guests of the Lodge enjoy access to all of the Europa's three-star facilities, including a restaurant, bar and one of the most delightful swimming pools we've seen.
The annexe building itself converted from the former staff quarters of the main block is a pretty no-frills affair, but guests are able to take advantage of all the Europa hotels facilities, including secure onsite parking and a fully-equipped gym, swimming pool and health club. Britannia guests can also make use of the Mediteranee restaurant at breakfast and dinner, and Rafters Bar for drinks and bar meals, meaning the Britannia Lodge offers exceptional value for money.

The whole experience ran very smoothly and the staff were most helpful and very courteous. Even though our return flight was late, our car was ready for us to drive away. Thank youMrs Pinkett, 26 May 2011

We recommend the Britannia for:
Canny bargain hunters - stay in a simple room at a great-value price, but with the benefits of an adjacent 3-star hotel on your doorstep.
Easy parking - the hotel has its own secure onsite parking and is situated an easy 15-minute bus or taxi ride from the airport terminals.
A spot of indulgence - take a dip in the pool, relax in the sauna and steam rooms, or work up a sweat in the well-equipped gym. However you choose to indulge yourself, its all on site!
Earliest check-in time is 2pm, and latest check-out time is 11am.
