The hotel is perfectly located in the centre of London few minutes away from Kensington station. It is a very nice hotel and the staff is really friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Prez for taking care of us! He is a star - ask for him and I am sure he would do the extra mile we are all... More

As we approached this hotel our hearts sank because it is a carbuncle on the surrounding area! Very nice airy reception and friendly check in raised our spirits, only to have them dive again as we entered our room. Brown/ grey, tatty furniture, lino coming off the wall in the grey bathroom, sealed windows(!!) Rubbish, noisy fan system that only... More

Having spent four nights, the hotel is pretty decent. the breakfast is good, the service is good and all round good experience. Let me just say that they filled expectations. Good part is that the High Street Kensington Underground (yellow line) is around the corner. The area is quite posh and having been there in the height of one of... More

As a gift for my 21st birthday we had a weekend away in London staying in the Copthorne Tara Hotel. We had a lovely time where staff were very helpful and friendly. Both restaurants served good quality food and the oriental restaurant was excellent. Our room was very clean and well maintained as well as spacious with a view overlooking... More

I booked two weeks in advance and got a standard twin for my nine year old daughter and I for £197 two nights with full breakfast. I was pleased. We got to the hotel at noon. Our room had been allocated but wasn't ready. I checked our light baggage and we headed off to Kensington High St tube. Under 20... More

Stayed one night in a double club room. Booked this hotel through Secret Escapes and feel that we received good value for money. The hotel is situated just around the corner from High Street Kensington tube (about a 5 min walk). Its not the most attractive building from the outside, but once inside we were pleasantly surprised. Check-in was effortless... More

This place was named after the architect who designed this 70's looking monstrosity, Baroness Tara Pinkleton - Newtshizt back in the late 18th century, probably. And although the place does offend ones eyes at first glance, should you actually venture into the hostelry, a world of magical, wondrous and sensual treats will cascade apon your person like sweets being poured...

The interior photographs online look lovely but in reality our room was small and basic. Location is good and compared to most hotels in London it was affordable (though still bloody expensive for what it is.) Worst thing: the pillows are like bricks. The air con is also quite noisy but it was sweltering with it off - in April!... More

We stayed for one night in mid April. Good priced (for Kensington!) deal via Booking.Com on a room only basis delivered just what we expected and wanted - a clean, we'll equipped twin on the 10th floor, which was very quiet. Decor etc what you expect from this type of hotel, and though not ultra modern state of the art,... More
