The Copthorne Hotel London Gatwick and Copthorne Hotel Effingham Park have merged their Reservations and Meetings & Events Office Jim Souter, Area General Manager for Copthorne Hotels Gatwick, commented: “Destination Copthorne Hotels Gatwick will create a ‘one-stop shop’ concept, offering our bookers a greater overall inventory of bedrooms and meeting space and the flexibility to choose between either property or use the facilities of both. For example, guests may wish to stay at the Copthorne Hotel London Gatwick but enjoy a round of golf at the Copthorne Hotel Effingham Park. Or alternatively, hold a prestigious event during the day in the Museum Suite at Effingham Park but enjoy an informal dinner at the White Swan Pub in Gatwick in the evening. The two hotels are able to offer a unique opportunity for our guests run by a highly efficient, flexible, customer focused team, dedicated to maximising profitable sales for both venues”
The hotels are just minutes apart and have some of the finest meeting space in the South East, including the Museum Suite at the Copthorne Hotel Effingham Park which, has over 1000sq, metres making it one of the largest venues of its kind in the region.
Combined the properties have 349 bedrooms extensive private parking and facilities including a private gym and health spa, nine hole golf course and flood lit tennis courts making them perfect for a weekend away or a board room meeting.
The existing teams have come together to form the “new team” and will be based at the Copthorne with a satellite office at the Effingham Park. Reservations will be headed up by Tracy McGrath, and the Meetings & Events team by Leyla Afacan, who have been with the Copthorne Hotels in Gatwick for 14 and 9 years respectively.
