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. Its large enough to have all the facilities youd expect from one of our four-star gatwick hotels, but not so massive that a guest will feel anonymous or ignored.
This is my second visit to this hotel and I've found excellent service and food here.Will come again when possible. Many thanks.Mr Roc (Gatwick Copthorne Effingham)

The heating in the hotel was not working and we froze.they said it would be fixed but it was not and it was freezingMr Watts (Gatwick Copthorne Effingham)
The rooms require a revamp. There is no air con. The radiators were off, but the room was too hot. It was a big family room which was great for us. The restaurant was shut. There was a very small bar area with some snacks. Requires improvement here. We went to a local pub to eat. Was ok for the price we paid with the onsite parking.Mr Elston (Gatwick Copthorne Effingham)
If the hotel had provided a pick up service from the airport on our return, we would probably have used there car parking services as well as staying at the hotel. Otherwise everything was as described and will definitely use Holidat Extras again.Mr Banham (Gatwick Copthorne Effingham)

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 hotels 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. Its 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 wont find any poky little guestrooms here, or ancient creaking stairs, or strange corridors that dont 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. Youll have no trouble finding it by car, and theres plenty of room for parking.
