Have used this hotel often for myself and family including disabled mother-in-law. Cannot fault the service from the staff - they are genuinely efficient and smiling. Hotel has everything you could wish for at this price point. Everything was super clean and the location is, of course, brillint.

I had a Club Room up on the 11th floor. Nice sized room. Very clean. Amenities included a wonderfully fluffy robe and slippers, kettle with generous tea/coffee making supplies and a fridge which is always handy to have. Large comfortable bed. Good selection of TV channels. Good wifi connection. Breakfast in the Club Lounge was great. Wide selection of good-quality... More

Fairly basic hotel, room was a bit noisy from next door one night but generally decent value for money in a good location. Only complaint is the internet was terrible so gave up on... More

We had a twin room including breakfast which we booked for a very good price for two nights (£165). Was not expecting the standard of service we received. It was superb and nothing was too much trouble. We were able to have breakfast in our room (full English with all the trimmings) for no extra cost, which was delightful, and... More

London has a number of "centres" and Kensington is one of them. This hotel is located close to Kensington gardens and Palace with a number of shops and restaurants closeby. I have been here on a number of occasions to restaurant and parties. Their service is always impeccable and food is great. Besides, a number of colleagues arriving for work... More

I booked a superior double room in August 2015 for a stay in February 2016. On arrival we were informed that there were no double rooms available, I questioned this and had to prove I had booked a double room, after 10 minutes of debating this, a double “superior” room became available. The room wasn’t in fact a double and... More

The Tara Copthorne is a good value comfortable hotel. Although the bathroom was a bit dated, and the corridors a bit aged, it was extremely clean & comfortable. The air conditioning worked brilliantly, and our room was nice Breakfast was tasty too!

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
