Sussex Hotel Staff Quarters - Sussex - April 2017

This used to be the old staff quarters for the Copthorne Hotel Effingham Gatwick hotel in Sussex. The hotel is still in business, but I guess they moved their live in staff to a different lodging.

It has around 20 bedrooms, and looks like it was split into two sections with two separate front doors.

I couldn’t find much history on this as its isn’t really documented anywhere. However I can say that it closed after 2007 as that is the latest date written anywhere.

Taking a unexpectedly dark turn, I did find some information about a murder that took place on the grounds back in 2000. A husband murdered one of the hotel staff with a hammer that his wife was having an affair with. He then went on to take his own life.
