Arrived at the Copthorne following a few days of snow, with the snow in the car park having turned to ice, we were surprised that more grit had not been spread between the entrance and the car park, especially as the Sale Sharks rugby team were boarding their team coach via a very slippy walk.
The lady on reception was very welcoming and efficient, booking us into a room on the 4th floor, the room was comfortable with a good size bathroom, can't understand what people are talking about with the TV's being old fashioned, they have a picture and all the freeview channels, they did the job, not LCD but who cares?
The room was clean, I dropped something under the bed and had to crouch down to pick it up, not a speck of dust or fluff to be seen, nice load of tea and coffee available in the room.
We popped down for a few drinks and a meal, all the tables in the bar were reserved for a wedding party, so we decided to pop over to McDonald's over the road, but the car park was so icy we got half way across it and turned back, only to find the wedding party had disappeared to a function room, we both had a bar meal and a pint, the bar meals being better value than the menu that was in the room and the hotel Guinness very tasty indeed, the food arrived quickly, was well presented and very tasty, we were glad we couldn't get across the road to McDonald's.
It was a disappointing night for sleep as we could hear the wedding reception a few floors down and once the music stopped people returning to their rooms and doors banging, which was a real shame, we were surprised that the music was not able to be kept to just the reception, especially as the point of us staying at the hotel was to get a good nights sleep before driving home.
The next morning we didn't have the hotel breakfast as £13.95 each was the most expensive that we have ever seen at any hotel that we have ever stayed at, we drove over to McDonald's and had two breakfasts for a fraction of the cost, we would have walked but the car park was still a skating rink.
A nice hotel, good priced room, clean, warm, good food, drink and staff, but their soundproofing need improving.
