Good value for money, however, we were put on top floor, no lifts although they did offer to take our bags up. Our room had a sloping roof which meant a few near misses and wife is only 5' 2", also smelt a bit musty.

Food was expensive so we used pub down the road.

Best point was the efficiency of the drop off and pick up, couldn't fault it.

I have used this hotel twice and find that it is a nice place for resting and parking the Car before an early Long Haul flight check in.
The check in process is simple, Room and Bath room clean, tidy and in good repair. Restaurant and Bars are adequate and priced reasonably for the location. Don’t expect gourmet dining and you won’t be disappointed.
The car was outside the entrance on my return and ready to go. Ensuring a quick turn round, allowing me to find my red eyed bed at home in time.

I stayed the night before an early morning flight. Check in was quick and easy.
My room was up in the loft but was still very spacious, mind the sloping roof.
Bed was very comfy, bathroom suitable. Was clean and tidy.
Didn't eat there but is a local sainsbury petrol station about 5mins walk down the road.
You book your airport transfer when checking in, this was no problem as wasn't a over popular time. On the morning minibus was waiting and is only 10 mins Max to airport.
Once arrived home was just a quick call to the hotel and the bus was there in 10mins. Reception staff were ready with my keys and so was a quick process to head home. Only thing I found they left my car in gear and hand break off do when started up car I nearly ended up in a bush.
Will use again if needed.

Used this hotel for just one night before a flight from Gatwick. The hotel was good value, clean and very comfortable. Nice room and a good size. Good bar and restaurant. The staff were first class nothing to much trouble. We used their parking facility and bus to the Airport. All went very smoothly and we were pick up on our return within 10 minutes. Will use again if we fly from Gatwick.

Room Tip: All rooms looked OK

We booked hotel via undercover hotels to stay the night before our holiday and to leave the car. The kind of deal you pay before you know where you are staying. This worked brilliant in 2013 as we got the copthorne, so the bar was set.

What a mistake, my wife searched on trip advisor for this hotel and was not looking forward to this stay. As always its only one night you think so its fine, cant be that bad.

The room we were given was the attic, if your over 6ft watch your head!! Very pokey and not really much room to move about.

Windows did not stick out properly to air the room as a scorching day.

On a plus though it was very very clean!

The transfer going to gatwick was good
Return was awful waited an hour after 2 phone calls we eventually got picked up, without working seat belts which in the uk is law, and a rude driver. Wish we had just booked a taxi instead of using this pushed in your face service.

Big issue!!!! My wife is allergic to nuts and i have dietary issues. So as you do you take your own food and drinks to be safe. Only to find out if you are caught with your own hot food or alcoholic drinks you will be fined £50. I never ever stayed anywhere like that its a awful rule almost like being forced to buy their over priced menu.

Also you have to sign a waiver that upon return your car may have a flat tyre or battery!!!!!

Bad experience. Would not recommend. Stay clear stay with a proper branded hotel not this prison.
