The taxi service to and from the airport is very efficient. We will continue to use this hotel when flying from Gatwick.

Really lovely hotel. The staff were polite, the room was beautiful, as were the grounds/surroundings. I left my car to go on holiday after our stay in the hotel. When I returned my car was perfectly safe and I would highly recommend people going away on holiday to use this hotel. You arrive at Gatwick refreshed and your car is parked safely nearby. There was a wedding going on when we returned. What a beautiful venue for such an event.

Probably the worst Hotel experience I have ever had. The Hotel itself is dismal, the décor exceptionally tired, threadbare carpets in the bedrooms and noisy. I honestly wouldn't stay in this establishment again even if it was free.

We stayed at the Effingham Copthorne before an early flight from Gatwick.It was part of a combined hotel and parking package. Hotel was clean and tidy but showing it's age in places, surprised by the size of the room! plenty of space unlike somewhere like a Travellodge. Food was good and we had a good nights sleep. We did not use their shuttle bus service as it departed at the wrong time for us, but they have an agreement with a local taxi company for a fixed rate transfer £11.50. Over all great value for money for what we paid. under £70 for a nights stay and up to 8 days parking. Will certainly use again.

Parking was easy and went without a hitch. The hotel was adequate but we felt needed an update. The carpet in our room was very threadbare and the decor was tired.

Firstly it was difficult to find the correct hotel as there are two Copthorn hotels very close to each other. Once the correct one was located there were no parking spaces free so I had to park on a muddy grassed area and drag my cases through puddles and mud. Hotel facilities were adequate but service so so.

Unfortunately I did not read the small print - my fault! I did not realise I would have to pay an additional £8 for the transfer for two of us to the airport and £11 to come back in a taxi. I assumed that as with other hotel's and car parks this was included.

We find that this hotel is the perfect overnight stay for us, Clean and tidy rooms, comfy bed, tea and coffee making facilities. As we have stayed at this hotel for a few years and we have the addition of parking we can thoroughly recommend this hotel. Some reviewers say the decour is a little bit tired looking which it may be, But for us it is ideal overnight stay before or after your flight. For the price you cannot beat this hotel.

Very clean and comfortable, had a very good nights sleep before an early start the next day, the taxi service to and from the airport was excellent, they were on time and very promt,this is also provided by the hotel at reduced rartes. I left my car with the hotel for 8 day and it was looked after very well and very secure. The only criticism is the deco could be brought up to date.

We booked the Copthorne Gatwick hotel via the website as we really enjoy staying there but when we arrived we were advised actually you are at Effingham. This was a poor hotel in comparison, there was a wedding so very noisy, no parking spaces and not on the same scale as the other hotel. Also when we returned someone had parked so close due to the lack of spaces my husband had to go in via the passenger side!

A busy transit hotel. Expensive snacks and drinks, but to be expected at this sort of location. Courteous staff Room uncomfortably warm, no means of reducing temps. Would probably use again, although unlikely that I would fly from Gatwick again.

We thought that the Copthorne Hotel was an excellent hotel which offered us up to 8 days free parking. The car was kept safe and secure with no hassle at all. The staff were polite and organised. On our return, I handed in our pass number and we were handed our car keys. The car was in the same place as we left it so it was very easy to find - in the car-park nearest to the hotel. Much, much better than having to park the car at the airport. Not to mention the high costs the airports charge. There was a very convenient shuttle bus from the hotel to the airport which was great.

Lovely hotel in a peaceful setting, room was amazingly large with a balcony and clean and comfortable. Staff were polite and professional in their duties and always willing to help if needed. Breakfast was very nice with a variety of different items to suit everybody. We found this hotel to be excellent value and will use again if flying from Gatwick.

The reason I have given a 5 star rating is because we find this hotel just perfect for an overnight stay before you fly. The beds are comfy and there is tea and coffee facilities in the room. We have used this hotel twice a year for some time and the parking arrangements have never been a problem. The taxi shuttle service before your holiday is ideal and on your return you phone for a taxi and you get a message on your phone to say the registration of the taxi. I would definitely reccomend F H R and Copthorne Effingham for the start to your holiday.
