Historical Traveler Reviews Copthorne Hotel Effingham Gatwick Crawley
Reasonable for the price
We stayed here for one night before flying out to Las Vegas at the end of March this year. It was generally okay, the only problem we had was being put into a room next to the air conditioner units which resulted in a lot of noise and the walls vibrating ! Complained at reception and our room was changed without any fuss.
I would stay at this hotel again as a stopover because it is so close to Gatwick and the parking deals you can get.
Tired & Tatty
Tired building & rude staff, wouldn't recommend especially as they were aware i had stayed before & had problems.
Great HONEYMOON experience!
My wife and I stayed here on the night of our wedding back in 1994. We only stayed the one night as we were flying out to Kenya the following day, but we both very much liked the hotel. Food was great, and although we had one of their better rooms as we were on honeymoon, the whole hotel appeared good value for money.
Oh so cold
Oh my god, no heating in December!!!!! it was so cold and no portable heaters available as they'd run out!!! And thats what you get for over £100.00 for the night!!!
You wont be finding me there again!!!
This is not a 4 star Hotel, Bathrails so hot in the summer that they heat the whole room up,no air-conditioning, Breakfast Buffet food not keep hot, time for breakfast is listed between 6.30-10am everything is being cleared away by 9.30am, when staff are just standing around talking.
In a 4 star Hotel I would expect them to use a Taxi service that has cars with air-conditioning, this was not a good start to a 15 hour journey back to the states.
We would not stay in any of these Hotels again, please! I would like to know what it takes to find a Hotel in England that actually has the standard they are rated to be.
Don't go there!
Awful. The price quoted changed 4 times from when we booked until when we arrived. Staff were rude especially the duty manager who was an pompous arrogant little man who argued with us and would not back down when he wanted to charge us £25 more than what we quoted when we booked it. When we picked our car up 10 days later is was covered in birds excement and grass cuttings! I had to put it through a car wash so i could see properly to drive home. Don't go there.
Best breakfast I've ever had!
Absolutely loved this hotel, it's fairly standard in terms of decor but lovely swimming pool facilities and the breakfasts were incredible, anyone who serves clotted cream at 8am in the morning deserves a recommendation!
Not up to a four star standard at all!
Stayed here last Summer but only just found this site hence late review.This hotel does not come up to my expectations of a four star hotel with airport transfers. The corridors were dirty, had peeling paintwork, scuff marks etc etc.In our room the sofa was so old the fabric was worn,shiny and grubby. I really didn't want to sit on it.We had a room with a balcony which had dirty broken plastic chairs, and what looked like outside stairways to all this area of rooms. This meant that our room did not feel secure, and we had to hide our luggage in the bathroom when we went out for dinner.Finally the airport transfer was appalling. I believe that the coaches only ran every half hour or hour,and picked up at another hotel which legthened the journey considerably,and therefore we had to pre-book our places for the transportation at around 6.00am to be sure of checking in on time.
Considering this hotel advertises itself for airport travel this didn't seem good enough.
Superb the price considered
My husband and I spent a weekend at the hotel and had absolutely nothing to complain about. The staff was very competent, willing and forthcoming, the kitchen was outstanding, the room was cosy and tidy.
For a 4-star hotel we had everything we could wish for. Our finest recommendations.
Bad choice on our part
Rude staff. No porter to help with luggage. Arranged for airport transfer, didnt happen. Staff's superior attitude quite unnecessary.
Rooms very nicely decorated but the odour of cigarettes most unpleasant, especially as non smoking room had been requested. Not too sure we would recommend the hotel to our friends.

... s family for kindly welcoming me and taking us to new places, but especially to Caryn for providing the whole trip and generally putting up with us for the whole time and giving us the chance to make some unforgettable memories! Goodbye blog - I won't miss having to type this every evening at the risk of parents messaging me to ask what I'm up ...
... lots of information/history about Greenwich to take in. Spent quite a bit of time in there then went and had a hot chocolate in the Old Bewery which is now a boutique Bewery with vats still working.
... just enough time to watch a tv show with John before I made my way to the airport. I said goodbye to John and hopped on my flight. I had a 4 hour flight to London, an 11 hour flight to Johannesburg and a 2 hour flight to Cape Town to prepare for. In London, I had just enough time to get off the plane, take a tram to another terminal, and hop on my flight. It was a red eye flight. I got settled in, watched a few movies, ate some air "plain" food and slept for the majority of the ...
... London on foot, and walking down the avenue tonight is something of an eye opener, as one can almost measure the income level slowly reducing as i make my way south: the window shopping of posh boutiques running down the avenue from Hampstead Station is flanked by stately mansions on the right, but these become townhouses before long, and these in turn become apartment buildings. Slick restos eventually become bars and KFC. By the time i am entering Camden Town, passing boys ...
When we finished the cruise we went to stone henge. We thought going there would be nice and quick but sadly it took one hour to get there. When we finally got there we looked around and started driving back to Crawley. I fell asleep going back so I don't remember much of it. When we got back my uncle came round. The next day we went to Legoland. It was really fun. We went on a opulent of rides. When we got there we went on this long ride ...
