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.

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.

Firstly, I did not book parking this booking was for a room for 1 night. Secondly before I record my issue let me say the hotel were very good, once I got into a room it was to standard and my visit was good, apart from a very noisy set of wedding guests who were rapping till 4:30 am The issue I encountered was that the hotel were not expecting me although I had confirmation from yourselves, they phoned their sister hotel to see if I was booked there and then had to set me up as a separate booking using my credit card to get me into a room. They provided me with tea in the foyer whilst I was waiting, I suspect the hotel bookings were blocked out for this wedding on the date I arrived, but FHR confirmed my room.

Room was an excellent size however the hotel was a little tired and did not meet my expectation of a 4 star rates hotel

The entrance of the hotel is fine. but that is it. When walking into the room there was a massive piece of thread bare carpet at the bottom of the bed. The bed dipped badly to the middle. The drinks in all bars was ridiculously high, as was the food prices. We ate at a pub a few minutes down the road.

We were put into a dirty room with mould growing around the shower tray. The drinks and meals were grossly over priced and the service was atrocious. Fellow guest complaining about waiting for meals an hour between coarses. We were obviously treated as a one night stay. How can this possibly be a 4 star hotel.

Excellent position for the airport,for an early start.
Mr Gerald Smith - 18 Sep 2013 17:12:32
Hotel is nice and friendly but a little jaded now. Cost was however excellent and car left for 15 days and returned in good condition.
