A hotel brimming with character and charm

As one of our most historical hotels at Gatwick, the Copthorne Hotel London Gatwick in Copthorne combines 16th-century charm with character and elegance. Set in 100 acres of woodland, it boasts a beautiful and tranquil setting, and is the perfect backdrop to kick back and unwind in.

This 4-star hotel is only three and a half miles away from the airport, but it feels a million miles away. Not only is this hotel picture-perfect, it also offers fantastic facilities including a swimming pool, squash courts and gym, all free for guests. There is also a beauty therapist and sports injury clinic.

As for dinner, there is the choice of two amazing restaurants. Enjoy a delicious meal in The Brasserie, a buffet style restaurant, or enjoy fine dining in The Lion D’Or, which offers fantastic British dishes and fine wines, for a great price. There are also two bars to choose from, The Library Bar and The White Swan Pub. The White Swan pub overlooks the hotel’s pond and picturesque gardens.

We recommend the Copthorne hotel at London Gatwick for:

Its beautiful grounds - Many guests stay at The Copthorne for its simply stunning gardens and woodland areas. There is nothing more enjoyable than relaxing in the heart of beautiful surroundings with a glass of bubbly in hand before jetting off on holiday.

Its fantastic dining options - Dining at The Copthorne is an experience in itself. Both restaurants offer some of the finest dining at Gatwick. With the choice of two fine-dining restaurants, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Their complementary leisure and fitness facilities - All guests receive complimentary access to the leisure club, which is just 100 yards from the hotel. Make use of the gym facilities or tennis and squash courts, or, if you’re after a more chilled -out time, laze in the steam room and sauna, or even indulge in a spa treatment.

Tranquil 16th century hotel, overlooking 100 acres of woodland. With wifi, use of pool, gym and squash courts.
