We stayed at this hotel before and after our holiday in Sicily. The staff are superb and the accommodation and food excellent. We will certainly recommend it and use it again in the future.

Excellent value for money at this hotel with large room and twin beds for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. Location to Gatwick was ideal with a shuttle mini bus from the hotel to the airport at quarter past every hour for any early morning flight. Food in the Sports Bar with Sky Sports was plentiful and with a wide choice for any family and good service. However our room location behind the hotels conference suite or function room ruined our stay, for it hosted a large Indian wedding/reception on the Sunday night that we stayed there. Music stopped after midnight at 12.30 and by the time guests had left or retired back to their rooms our hopes of a good nights sleep had faded before our early morning flight. For if we could not hear the music than we could hear every smokers conversation beneath us.

Great hotel with parking very quick and friendly check in room was clean and not at all tatty like some reviews state. Friendly in the restaurant we had the the set menu for evening meal which was very nice. Breakfast was overpriced this is the only downside of this hotel m we would definitely return

Overall very good. We were especially pleased with the standard of the food we had at dinner and the service received ( we did not have breakfast so cannot comment on that). We feel we cannot give the full 5 stars as there does need to be some updating of the decor and carpeting in the bedrooms and the corridors.

Prefer the Copthorne Gatwick as it has more character, a nicer a la carte restaurant and is nearer the airport however car was reasonably clean and had been moved to the pick up point on our return.

Effingham park is a nice hotel, a little bit dated but clean and comfortable and the staff are very helpful. Parking is safe and efficient. We took the taxi from the hotel to Gatwick airport and they were also very good and costs less than three of you on the shuttle.

nice room good facilities, we had a club room could be really nice if they cleaned and painted the small balcony.

We have used this hotel/parking several times before because you do not have to leave your car keys while away and there is a shuttle bus service. However, the hotel is now getting rather shabby, the restaurant evening meal was poor. The room was very hot, the radiator could not be adjusted without a spanner (we were on the ground floor so did not want to leave the window open) and although we asked at reception on arrival, no one came to turn the radiator off (or down) during the 14 hours we were there! There is no minibar or frig, and one often flies with something needing a frig (in our case gluten-free bread). We asked reception to book a taxi (Road Runners) for the next morning, because the bus times were inconvenient. The taxi arrived 10 minutes late and the driver did not even apologise. On our return flight, the hotel shuttle bus did not arrive. After waiting 40 minutes we phoned the hotel, who asked us to telephone the bus company (also Road Runners). We persuaded the hotel to do the chasing, and eventually a Road Runners taxi arrived and only charged us the cost of 2 shuttle bus tickets. We would not automatically book this hotel again without looking at alternatives.
