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

Upon arriving at this supposedly 4star hotel (as stated by TicketTree), we were slightly disappointed with the bleak exterior. However, once inside the reception the hotel was very grand and traditional. We had only booked this hotel for one night and had only done so the previous night so when we approached the reception, we were told there was no... More

Good: The lobby is nice. Breakfast was good. The Asian restaurant was surprisingly good. Convenient to tube station. Bad: 1st room had stained sheets, odd odor, and sat over the railroad tracks (noisy). 2nd room faced over the front of the hotel and had black hair wads in the tub. Both rooms looked like dorm rooms with way too much... More

Stayed here recently as part of an organised trip and was a bit disappointed with room. We stay in hotels often and expected a larger room than the one we had. A bit out of the way we thought and would rather stay nearer the tourist attractions but I suppose anywhere is accessable by the London underground and there was... More

Although most of the staff was very friendly, the woman at reception was not. The hotel was packed and noisy and after a long 24 hours of travel we just wanted to get to our room, but had to wait, with no where to sit (many guests were looking for a place to sit) I finally sat on the edge... More

Booked a club room for 5 nights. Arrived early morning after an overnight 18 hr flight from Australia, tried to get an earlier check in to the room, helpful reception staff said to come back at 1pm. Did as was told, came back at 1pm only to have the duty manager dismiss us with the words, "rooms not ready, go... More

I stayed at this hotel for business purposes. The location is very convenient as the Underground station is very closeby..you can easily walk to Hyde Park as well in case you love nature walks..I simply love Kensington..nice area. There are some restaurants in the vicinity which is a plus in case you do not want to travel far away for... More

Stayed for two nights over the Bank holiday w/e. Very convenient for the tube once we found it as two different post codes on the web site and our booking form. Staff helpful when we rang in for directions. On arrival we were impressed with the staff, the lobby and public rooms - really thought we had struck lucky as... More
