Well situated, good for shopping as it's close to subway and shops. The employees are attuned and helpful. The breakfast is copious and varied. Bad point for the lift in rush hour we're waiting too long

We recently stayed at this hotel for one night. The hotel was in a really good location for sight seeing and restaurants. I searched for a 4 or 5 star hotel. This hotel is 4 *. The Reception was busy but friendly, staff were very helpful. However, the actual rooms were a great disappointment. We stayed in superior twin and... More

Location makes this a great place to stay - minutes from Ken High St, the District Line, buses . We got a great rate £80 per night through Travelzoo which made this great value for the location and overall quality of this Hotel. Car parking under cover at £15per night was another added bonus. The building is just ugly and... More

I went up to London to meet a friend who was flying in from South Africa. I managed to get some good rates by hunting around. The reception staff were friendly and had me booked in within minutes. The hotel has a sports bar which does some great food, the biryani was very tasty. My room overlooked part of the... More

Managed to get a last minute deal at this hotel in Kensington which a 2 minute walk from the Tube. Wanted a family room for 3 - 2 adults and a 9 year old. We booked a premium family room to find a not quite double bed in the basement for all 3 of us. When we pointed it out... More

PLUSES: - Location, Location, Location. The hotel's in a quiet little cul-de-sac about a minute's walk from the High Street Kensington (and the Tube station). Easy access to a ton of restaurants, pubs, and shopping. - A fairly decent breakfast spread with lots of continental and pan-asian options. - A halfway decent gym. - Wifi speeds are pretty good. -...

I've been to this hotel 3x for a wedding. Lovely banqueting suite on the ground floor, Parking in the areas was reasonable. Food was really nice - was a PK catering company, and the organisation was good. Clean and friendly staff. I've not stayed in his hotel, just used its services.

Stayed here for 4 night with my 9 year old son. Staff all very friendly and reception and restaurant/bar very nice. Rooms were however very dated and do not reflect the image that the hotel is aiming for. Prices at the hotel are high but comparable with most other London prices. Breakfast was good but bar menu at dinner time... More

Having read previous reviews it was with some trepidation that we started our weekend away but there was no need to worry as staff at this ideally situated hotel in Kensington were friendly and helpful. We arrived far to early to be able to check in straightaway but there was no problem being able to store our luggage with Guest... More

I recommend this hotel to travelers that want the benefits of an expensive area of London without the high cost. The Copthorne Tara hotel is has a very nice lobby/sitting area with a doorman and valet. We got a standard room that was nice, just not luxurious - we got what we paid for. I never walked past a hotel... More
