A mixed bag

Modern? No. Luxurious? No. Just an old faded beauty queen whose best years are long past. Big need for facelift and quality plastic surgery. The countryside/golf course setting is fantastic though - its too bad the facility does not come close to matching it.

Good, bad, but not ugly

Staying for early morning flight. Shuttle service prompt. Staff exceedingly good. Hotel marred by having dated technology. TV old with no captioning capabilities. No WiFI available in room, and no free WIFI in common areas. When even modest motels in Usa and all fast food places offer free WIFI, it's time for UK to pay attention.

Quaint little get away

The location was off the beaten path which made for a good getaway. The location did have disadvantages such as to and from travel relying mostly on bus travel on schedules. The staff was very friendly and helpful when asked or if questioned about places to see. Overall for a couples weekend I would recommend the hotel but for family there was limited activities for children. The family activities should be considered if your planning a trip.

wonderful staff

the hotel was adequate for my needs, however the staff was exceptional. Very friendly and helpful. A little far from London for me but the bus service from the hotel to connection (train and other bus service) was very punctual to and from hotel. Wish there was a free shutle service from airport to hotel since I had not had a chance to change U.S. currency.

Copthorne

Relaxed, took enjoyable strolls through the beautiful quiet grounds, soaking up the peacefullness of the English countryside (as we had just come off an 11 day Atlantic crossing that landed in Dover). Although we did not play, the golf course looked great. The staff was most professional and extremely helpful in all matters. Prices for food, wine and other drinks were very reasonable. Also the inculsion of the coffee, snacks and soft drinks in the room price was a bountiful, appreciated suprise. Would definitely stay there again if overnighting through Gatwick. Staying for few days, I would bring a few golf clubs to enjoy the course and putting green. The exercise facilities appeared to be state-of-the-art and pool looked great also.

Copthorne Hotel Effingham Gatwick

Desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Their attention to detail and attentativeness to us were splendid. We have sailed on cruises for more than one hundred twenty nights in total and never received better care. The grounds are truly what one dreams they would be. I am not able to fully express my pleasure at having chosen the Copthorne for our stay. Lovely.
