The Gatwick Europa Hotel
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
- "the ease and convenience of the booking from start to finish. Also the description for the hotel and the distance to the car park were spot on so there was no hidden problems"

Keeping with the theme, the Mediterranee restaurant, overlooking the hotels 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.
