Spent one night here. Hotel itself is quite posh and upper class, but the rooms are very basic. Had a double bed with small en suite which was adequate for the one night. Pub food was really nice but the price for drinks in the whole hotel is outrageous. £11 for one glass of wine. They even charged £1 to put coke in a glass with a spirit. Glass of coke on its own is £4.50. Plenty space to park (but you do pay) and was in the perfect place to get to where I needed to be in good time the next day. So, good hotel but really need to look at their prices as it doesn't reflect what you get for it!!
"short notice but excellent"
Booked in after a flight delay from Gatwick for the night at very short notice-Excellent customer service on check in & regularly updated,nice room etc & a lovely varied Breakfast in the morning-Very interesting hotel.
"pre flight stay"
Third time staying at this place and surprised at the 20 % increase in price to the room and parking but with no additional benefits to the guest. The rooms are clean and are just the job but are basic and serve the purpose of a nights sleep before early check in. Bar food is ok but £11.75 was a bit steep for a single glass of red wine from the bar. However, we were unfortunate to be given a room on the main corridor which made it very noisy with passing guests returning to their room. On the upside the car remains in the hotel grounds and the taxi service is great. Not saying that we would not return but will be looking at alternatives for hotel and parking for our holiday at the end of February
We stayed for one night to be close to Gatwick.Room was awful-toilet seat was chipped and broken,plug missing from sink and shower did not work properly plus the toilet was dirty when we arrived.Prices in the bar were extortionate and the price of food at the on site pub were horrendous for average quality pub food. Staff were theone good feature being friendly and helpful
"Handy for the airport"
This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel when flying from Gatwick. The system works well. We checked in, the receptionist booked us a taxi for the following morning. We had a delightful meal in the Lion d'or very relaxed with outstanding service. The room was small but adequate for one night with a comfortable bed and efficient shower. We left the car at the hotel and a very friendly taxi driver took us to the airport. On our return (leaving Cape Verde in 30 degree heat and arriving at midnight to minus 2) we collected our bags and phoned the taxi number supplied by the hotel. By the time we left the terminal he was there. A quick drive back to the Copthorne. Collect the keys from reception, scrape the ice off the car (with a credit card as we weren't prepared) and we were on our way home. Much cheaper than airport parking and it works. See you next time Copthorne.
