Location of the hotel is rather good, a 6 mins walk from the train station. Expect room to be a lot older looking and bed is small as compared to the pictures online. However, the basic amendities are still pretty fine. 3 & 1/2 stars for me.

The main positives of this hotel are its location, car park and its staff. They are friendly, helpful and attentive. Maria in particular is a lovely lady who has worked there for 30 years and she looks after you like a mother in the Breakfast lounge. Tea was 'topped up' andshe had a wonderfully warm manner. The location is close... More

Arrived at 5pm, to be out for 6pm for black tie dinner. Husband then realised he hasn't got cuff links...after contacting a friend (to no avail), we ask Joshua on the front desk who immediately said no problem sir and gave him his own to use for the evening. Great service!

Staff couldn't have been more helpful especially as when we were checking in the fire alarm went off and the hotel was evacuated. When we eventually checked in it was late and we went to the bar for a drink. Generally the hotel is clean, although dated, and feels very functional and 'beige' we were supposed to stay for four...

A comfortable Central London hotel located very close to Tube station and many attractions, with some within walking distance. It was a surprise to see an in-house restaurant serving far eastern food of excellent quality.

Though from outside unattractive , the Copthorne Tara Kensington turned out to be an excellent choice for our recent week in London. Our club floor room was spacious, comfortable, and very quiet. In the club lounge we enjoyed a good breakfast every morning, and cappuccinos and teas several times a day. The club floors also have free Internet access. The... More

The room was very run down and cupboards actually had cracks in them. To make it worse: unlike any other hotels you need to open an account first to order room service or to have in-house restaurants coffee/dinners put on your room bill. The problem? They do not tell you that at check-in. When after a very long and tiresome... More

Fabulous hotel. The staff could not do enough from the moment we arrived. They were so welcoming and pleasant. We ate dinner in the restaurant and it was delicious. Breakfast was included in our stay and there was a fantastic variety of food available. The location is ideal for central London. Would definitely stay here again.

Only stayed one night but found the room a bit small. Didn't eat in it at night so can't say anything about the food. Breakfast was nice enough but long queues at times and a busy restaurant at breakfast time. The bar was very expensive so didn't even have a drink. Staff were faultless though and couldn't do enough to... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Copthorne Tara. Was as expected, service at reception was easy, room very nice, breakfast very good, no complaints except 'take your own tea bag' unless you like green tea or camomile. Good location, only 5 minutes walk to the tube and buses, just off Kensington High Street. I would stay there again.
