Quick guide: The Europa is not what you would expect from an airport hotel. This popular hotel is built the style of a hacienda, centred around a garden and a water feature with carp and goldfish. Inside exposed timber ceilings are mixed with terrazzo and marble features to complement this style, with facilities including a pool and gym.
Also known as the Britannia Europa Hotel Gatwick (which is a bit of a mouthful), this low rise, three star hotel with 211 bedrooms. Expect to pay from £49 room only and £69 including 8 or 15 days free airport parking, depending on the time of year.
