Brilliant venue in the millennium round room. We had a lovely meal which when you consider there were 400 people we think they did well. A very enjoyable evening had by all and the staff were very attentive. We chose to stay the night and although our room was fine, the carpet was threadbare and our friends had to have 2 rooms because half the bathroom didn't work properly and they had to use another room for showers etc. I think if you were paying the going rate you would be a little disappointed but we were fine in our room 120. Which we booked at a discount rate months before. The staff had taken note of our request to have a room where we could not only open the window but also be able to leave it open overnight. The grounds looked well cared for and very pretty. We didn't stay for breakfast as we thought it expensive at £11.95 each and as we were going out to lunch we would not have done it justice. All in all a reasonable stay

Room Tip: They will try to get you to upgrade your room at £30 which would then also include breakfast

We recently stayed at the hotel overnight with parking before leaving for a holiday. The room was certainly adequate and the grounds impressive. the service was good and we would certainly recommend guests try the restaurant as the food far exceeded our expectations of hotel food. It was delicious, reasonably priced, good service and certainly finished off our evening in a nice way. The car parking service worked well and transfers to and from the airport were easy. All in all we were very pleased with the overall package.

Reminded me of the Overlook Hotel from the Shining. As commented it's very much in need of a renovation, carpet in my room (310) was threadbare in places, bathroom was firmly stuck in 1978. However bed was large and very comfortable and opted for the room upgrade and got a balcony area, a worthy upgrade. A usual moan I have with hotel rooms is the lack of mains sockets, 2 hidden away in this room afraid to say.

The lift was chronically slow and food uninspiring, the main restaurant was largely empty for 2 of the 3 nights we were there, the third night we opted to dine locally. For those 2 nights we dined in the sports bar, as said uninspiring food and beer served flat.

Would I choses to stay here again, I'm afraid not.

Room Tip: Go for the room upgrade.

We stayed 1 night before flying out of Gatwick the next day . We had a suite as it had been our wedding , we arrived around 11pm We had a quick check in and ordered a bottle of wine up to the room . We liked the suite , very comfortable and clean . The next day a taxi was ordered for us from reception. We had a coffee at the bar , this took quite a while .
Overall a very good stay !

I doubt this hotel will ever be refurbished judging how long the manager has been answering questions. It would be a costly exercise. A hotel of this group I would expect are hoping to sell on or to a property speculator. Spectacular grounds. Staff very well trained courteous smiley and helpful.
Sadly all let down by faded decor threadbare carpets outdated rooms,small beds. The oily palm marked disgusting chairs in the resturant are just that, prices are high but can be avoided.
Having said all that everywhere is super clean as are bed covers and towels which has to be down to loyal staff.
If it were to be upgraded it would surely command a higher price ........so you pays yer money etc.
Because of its cleanliness wonderful parking facilities and staff I would stay again.

We stayed at the effingham park copthorne en route to gatwick airport. It is in a very pleasant location. Comfortable rooms. Friendly staff and good breakfast. We used the local Dukes Head pub for our evening meal which was outstanding and just a short walk from the hotel. Booking is advised as it is very popular!
