The room is clean and comfortable.We felt welcomed by the friendly reception staff, she even introduced herself and chatted with us. We really loved and enjoyed their happy hour at the Copthrone Club... More

We booked one night at this hotel through Lastminute so got a good rate. I would have rated our room as very good had it not been for the very worn bathroom and a wall that had been ravaged by damp leaving bare plaster and very little paint. The curtains were also grubby and hanging off their hooks - management... More

Everything is ok without anything being exceptional, it's a big hotel so if you time it wrong check in or out can take a while and the rooms whilst clean feel a little dated. breakfast was plentiful but not of the highest quality. It's helpful that the hotel has reasonably priced parking given it's location but I could foresee this... More

I'm a regular visitor to the hotel with about twenty stay's there in the past three years. From check -in to check out I've always been treated with courtesy. The rooms are great, the food in the restaurants is top quality, the breakfast is particularly good and the bar is bustling with the sort of atmosphere you'd expect in a... More

Overall, we did not have a very good experience at the Copthorne Tara. One of the problems was customer service, while once in awhile people were helpful (and particular praise should go to one manager named Curtis) we experienced a number of problems that we shouldn't have had to deal with. While the staff overall sounded pleasant, the execution wasn't... More

The hotel is conveniently located, just 5 minutes walk from Kengsinton High Street Tube Station. The room is clean and comfortable. During our stay, we felt really welcome by the friendly hotel staff. The staff's warm greetings made us feel at home, like concierge Mohammed is one of them.

Just checked in to the Copthorne in Kensington for 4 nights and was offered room 146 which defied explanation. My booking is non refundable and was done via agoda.com.
