Last year i was in the Coppid Beach for 1 week. Well i think this is a typical british hotel. The breakfast was typical. The rooms are well suited and for me a little bit heavy furnitured. Why not 5 stars.
The Problem is after 6 pm you have no chance to go somewhere. There is nothing around the hotel.
But i think, if i have to go again to Wokingham i will chosse the Coppid Beach.
Coppid Beech is a decent hotel in Bracknell (suburbs of London) with lots of amenities e.g. gym, 5 restaurants onsite, conference rooms, etc but the only thing that it needs is a renovation - the rooms look outdated with old furniture, CRT TVs and my room had a remote control that didn't even work. The TV also doesn't have very many channels and i could only find 1 channel that wasn't sports related. Also, the room service menu is lacking.
If they would put more investment in the customer experience, i think they could really raise their star rating. But that aside, if you're looking for a good bargain in the suburbs of London, this ain't a bad place.
I don't think I'll be doing much driving in England. Bracknell is the land of the roundabouts, the roads that circle around-and-around until you choose one of four possible roadway. Well, in the UK you drive on the left, your steering wheel in your rental car is to your right and the stick shift is to your left. So, every time there's a perceived emergency, I find my self lunging for my car window controls. It's a miracle I didn't get deported.
I was working for a high-tech company with a design-center in Bracknell, and I was visiting doing marketing stuff, so this a bit dated. Nothing against Bracknell, but as in my home town of San Jose, bedroom communities like ours' don't often offer much after-work activities. So, when our English admin said that I was staying at "Copa Beach", I envisioned fun in the sun, sand, rum and rumba with the English girls somewhere hidden in the community. Nope.... My North American ears needed English articulation listening training -- she actually said that I was staying at the Coppid Beech Hotel. My bad.
The Coppid Beech Hotel is in Berkshire, with many guest amenities with comfortable, a bit dated bedrooms; there's a nice bar downstairs, but the menu was a bit limited. Hey, but I was here for work. It also has some meeting and conference facilities--which we didn't have to use.
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon in August. They had a dance weekend on here, and we met at Jive lessons, so it seemed appropriate to have a dance holiday as our honeymoon!
They were really nice and upgraded us to the honeymoon suite, and the hotel was always clean and rooms well presented.
The only reason I didn't give the hotel 5 stars was that there wasn't much variety on any given menu. Some evenings there was nothing we really liked, and others we wanted to try everything! However this may have been because it was a buffet, specifically provided for those on the dance holiday.
The Coppid Beech is 4 star hotel variously described as Swiss chalet or Alpine style hotel on the edge of Bracknell near the end of the A329M and the M4. The 200 room hotel is has an AA 2 rosette restaurant, a night club called Après. Downstairs there is the usual hotel bar, an Austrian 'Bier Keller' and a Health Club downstairs with an air-conditioned gym, sauna, steam room, sun beds, spa bath and two swimming pools.
There are some nice design touches, like a triangle of three large fish tanks on each of the bedroom floors near the lifts which form a Toblerone-shaped light-pipe going into the reception area. The rooms have a lot of pale wood, adding to the Chalet-style décor.
The breakfast buffet is extensive, and the toast arrived quickly and wasn't burnt. I didn't try the main restaurant for an evening meal, but a colleague described as fancy and overpriced, and that is how the menu looked to me.
The car park circles the hotel, so there is plenty of it, but it still gets busy; there are very visible security staff walking around the car park.
Overall I enjoyed the stay, but I don't think it is as good as it could be, not sure why!
This is an impressive hotel! Designed to look like a chalet it has the wow factor! The staff are well manered and smart, the rooms are large with slightly dated decor but still impressive. The cleaners are patient and no need to hurry to vacate your room, its generally used as a stopover for business travellers but is also great for a mini break as it has many facillities.
When I was growing up, Coppid Beech used to be the place to go for 'Fancy Family Dinner Celebrations'. The food is divine, there's sometimes a pianist and the service is brilliant. But then we went back there for afternoon tea this weekend. I'd checked the website and they did offer scones and teabut when we checked at reception she said they didn't. However. the lounge menu offered several options for a spot of afternoon tea. We sat down, and a waitress came over and asked what we'd like to order straight away. We asked if she could come back in a minute after we looked at the menusbut we didn't really expect her to take that literally, arriving back at the table 60 seconds later. She was a littleabrupt. Our food arrived about 15 minutes later, with the bill hastily shoved in front of us. It was nice enough, nothing particularly special. We did have to get up and ask for sugar though. Overall, I would recommend the Coppid Beech for food in the evening, and the hotel itself is beautiful. Maybe skip afternoon tea though!
The Coppid Beech is a very nice hotel with a selection of smart restaurants but the real appeal is that is has a nightclub open on a Friday and Saturday night. This is quite tacky but in a good way and doesn't take itself too seriously - perfect for a night out with the girls. The only downside is that its quite out of the way and its hard to get a taxi afterwards.
