A Mediterranean start to your holiday

It might be just five miles from the airport, but the great-value, friendly Gatwick Europa hotel has a distinctly Mediterranean flavour. Its unusual architecture, palm trees and geometric floor tiles give it a North African feel - as you relax in the cool courtyard, you wouldn't believe you were just five miles from the airport at this Gatwick hotel. Unwind in the health club, with its pool, gym and sauna, or tuck into an all-you-can-eat roast dinner in the Mediterranee restaurant.

As well as all this Mediterranean luxury, your car will be as comfortable as you are in the on-site Europa car park, which has 450 spaces, so you can be sure of finding a spot for your car. The car park is protected by CCTV, so your car will also be safe. The shuttlebus to the airport leaves every 45 minutes at peak times, and costs £5 per adult for a return. See our Getting there tab for more information and directions.

Relax in the pool, the bar, the restaurant or the courtyards

Keeping with the theme, the Mediterranee restaurant, overlooking the hotel’s beautiful courtyard garden, offers a breakfast buffet to get your day off to a hale and hearty start, and a self-service carvery in the evenings. The cosy Rafters bar offers light meals from noon till late, as well as a selection of wines, beers and soft drinks.

The hotel also has a Spindles health club on site that has a light, spacious gym with free and fixed weights, bikes and treadmills, and an extravagant, heated indoor swimming pool, designed to flow around Spanish-style archways. There's even a sauna, a steam room and a hot tub.

We recommend the Europa for:

Exotic atmosphere - Its unique decor makes it feel more like a Spanish hacienda than an airport hotel.

Health and leisure - Take care of yourself in the fully-equipped gym, indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room, and get a head-start on your holiday tan in the solarium.

Families and groups - The hotel has more than 60 family rooms, and can provide a cot if you need one; even pets are welcome.


You can check in from 2pm; you must check out by 11am.

More Information

A welcoming and relaxing gateway to the Med - it has a huge pool, hot tub and gym, all just 10 minutes from check-in.

You'll feel an ocean away as soon as you walk in the door of the Europa hotel. With distinctly Mediterranean architecture and decor, pretty grounds and impressive leisure facilities, a stay at the Europa is a holiday in itself - just without the price tag. Check-in is from 14:00 so you'll have plenty of time to explore.

When you're ready to eat, take a seat upstairs in the Mediterranee restaurant. Dinner is served from 18:30 to 21:45 and you'll find a well-priced, carvery-style menu which will tickle your tastebuds. It's a relaxed, continental dining experience at the Europa where you can enjoy your dinner with a view over the fountain in the courtyard.

But if you're feeling peckish outside those hours or you'd like a drink or two to get you into that holiday mood, we'd recommend stopping at Rafters bar. You can tuck into some traditional pub grub next to the fireplace, or grab your drink and a snack and sit on one of the comfy leather sofas from 11:00 to 22:30. You can even stay connected with free wifi in the foyer.

Say "adios" to all the pre-holiday stress. If you've got some extra time on your hands, the hotel has a luxurious health club on site. Whether you're looking to burn a few calories in the gym, unwind in the bubbly hot tub or swim a few laps in the heated pool, there's no better place to do it than at the Europa. The health club is open from 06:30 to 22:00 from Monday to Thursday, 06:30 to 21:00 on a Friday, 08:00 to 20:00 at the weekend, and costs £4 for adults and £2 for children. Towel hire is £1 per towel.

Make your way to your clean, comfortable and spacious room when bedtime calls. Every bedroom has a TV, telephone, radio, hairdryer, trouser press and tea and coffee.

If you're looking for an even better start to your holiday, you can upgrade to an executive room. You'll get a wake-up-call service so you're up in time to catch your flight, a larger bedroom and a spa bath.

Take advantage of a scrumptious breakfast which is even easier on your pocket when you pre-book. You can take your pick from the wide selection of Continental and English breakfast foods. It's served in the Mediterranee restaurant from 06:30 to 09:30 on weekdays and 07:00 to 10:00 on weekends.
