A holiday resort near Gatwick airport

The excellent leisure facilities at the Copthorne Hotel Effingham Gatwick make it a holiday destination in its own right. The hotel is set in 40 acres of parkland and has its own nine-hole golf course, a gym, hard tennis courts, a great restaurant and good bars. Fortunately, it's also very handy for your real holiday - it's just 10 minutes from Gatwick airport.

Forty acres of parkland

Set apart from the hurly-burly of the airport, this Effingham Park hotel is a great place to stay for those needing a little fresh air and peace before they fly off on holiday. It’s large enough to have all the facilities you’d expect from one of our four-star gatwick hotels, but not so massive that a guest will feel anonymous or ignored.

Even the first tee of the golf course is just outside the door

The design of the Copthorne Effingham Gatwick hotel is well thought-out. All the main public areas - entrance, lounge bar, restaurant and reception - radiate from the impressive circular lobby on the ground floor. The hotel’s excellent sports and leisure facilities are nicely tucked away one floor down. You'll have no trouble finding your way about, and everything is handy – even the first tee of the golf course is just outside the door.

On arrival, your eye is drawn to the central feature – a large chandelier hanging down from the second floor through a tiered octagonal opening in the ceiling. Below it is a smart lobby area with leather chairs, a white grand piano and sparkling marble floors.

We recommend the Copthorne hotel Effingham Gatwick for:

Leisure facilities - Many guests stay at the Gatwick Copthorne Effingham for a sports holiday and the hotel has everything you need to keep trim – a well-equipped gym, two hard tennis courts and its own golf course right on the doorstep.

A different world - With its 40 acres of woodland and well-mown lawns, the Copthorne Effingham hotel Gatwick feels like a country hotel. It’s a quiet place with enough space to breathe easy after a tedious car journey or a long flight. There are large grounds if you fancy a stroll outside, and in your room you can hear the faint drone of lawnmowers outside working around the golf greens … all very relaxing.

Nice big rooms - They are just that little bit larger than in most hotels, and the extra space makes a surprising amount of difference. You won’t find any poky little guestrooms here, or ancient creaking stairs, or strange corridors that don’t seem to lead anywhere – the Effingham was purpose-built in 1988.

Convenience - The Effingham hotel is only 10 minutes away from Gatwick airport by taxi, or 15 minutes on the transfer bus, which leaves from just outside reception. You’ll have no trouble finding it by car, and there’s plenty of room for parking.


You can check in from 2pm. You must check out by noon.

More Information

A hotel so elegant it has a piano in the lobby and a 9-hole golf course in the grounds - so much to do, so little time.

The elegance of the stately Copthorne Effingham hotel was evident from the moment we walked into the opulent lobby with its white grand piano and two-storey chandelier. The refinement of the hotel, however, didn't mean we were left with nothing to do.

You can check in from 14:00. As soon as we did we took advantage of the 9-hole golf course, putting green and driving range that's free for guests to use and rent equipment - book your place through us after you've booked your room. On the other hand, you can rent out one of the hotel's tennis courts with equipment for £10.

Fabulous fine dining is on offer at the Terrace restaurant from 18.30 to 22:00 where kids under 5 eat free, then it's on to the lively sports bar for pool or table football until the early hours. We preferred the lounge bar though, for a comfortable couch to curl up on.

Check out before 12:00, but make sure to sample the Terrace's delicious and varied buffet of breakfast treats between 06:30 and 10:00, 07:00 to 11:00 on weekends, for £11.95 per person. Let us make the arrangements for you - breakfast can be added to your booking on the next page for only £8.99, and kids under 5 eat free with the deal.

Getting to the airport is straightforward and stress free. The bus service to the airport picks up from the hotel at a quarter past every hour, from 04:15 - 23:15. Adult tickets cost £4.50, but two children can travel free with two paying adults. The journey takes 10-15 minutes.

The bus doesn't run back to the hotel, but you can get a taxi to pick you up and take you there. This will cost around £11.50. Make sure you use United Taxis as they are partners of the hotel, and it may cost more if you use another taxi firm.

The Copthorne Effingham is a holiday in itself.
