Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington
4 out of 5

We booked and paid this hotel 4 month's in advance which meant we got our twin room for £75 per night, which for a 4 star hotel just off Kensington High Street is an absolute bargin. The hotel its self was more than adequate. The lobby was lovely but as many reviews have said rooms could do with a bit of an upgrade and the hallway carpet really needed to be replaced (threadbare in places with a few small tears here and there) but the rooms were very clean and beds were comfy although very small singles. Having said that we did change rooms. The room we were given had a very old bath which was black (well nearly) on the bottom. It was clean though, the blackness being damage caused over many years of use where the enamel had warn away. I telephoned reception who sent up a lovely young lady immediately to clean the bathroom. She tried but agreed with my deduction that the bath was clean but simply warn. I asked if all the bath's in the hotel were in the same shape to which she replied no and suggested I phone reception again and ask for another room. We did this and another room was supplied instantly. The bath in this room was new and absolutely fine. The hotel has no wifi which really should be standard now a days. If you didn't have a laptop (we didn't, just the smart phones that required wifi) you had to pay £1 for 20 minutes use of a computer just off the lobby. We had one room service lunch with was quite good. Also the High Street Kensington tube station was only a 3 minute walk away. Over all I would definitely stay there again if I could secure a good room rate.

We have visited London on many occasions and choose to stay in the fabulous Kensington area. We were fortunate enough to purchase Club level at a good price however found Club to be a minimalist experience compared to other experiences. For a little extra effort this stay would have been given a 5 star experience, that being said would stay again

The hotel isn't far from city center. Breakfast wasn't include in the price of room. Would pay 10 GBP extra per day for a breakfast, but had every day ready new coffee and tea in the room.

This hotel should not be listed as a 4 star, it is a tired 3 star! Make sure you get a room away from the train tracks (we did not, as we did not know of course). Breakfast buffet not very nice, but the asian restaurant in the hotel was quite ok and well priced.

The hotel is in a perfect location: lots of shops, restaurants, coffee shops, etc around. It also seemed a very safe neibourhood. On check-in I found a very strong smell of mildew in the room. I went back downstair and I got a different room without any hassle. Rooms are clean and in reasonable shape. From desk staff are very friendly and helpful. I was however stopped by a security guard in front of lifts in the lobby on my second day. He wanted to know which guest I was visiting and their name and room number!!! I told him I "was" the guest, but he still insisted to check my name and details... as soon as I showed him my room key, he was happy... I guess this is for the safety and security of the guests but I was very unimpressed.

The hotel was just right for us. It is in a convenient location for what we wanted - museums and theatre. We booked in advance, so the cost was not prohibitive. The room was comfortable and spacious. All the members of staff were pleasant and helpful, although we found it odd that there appeared to be no British people employed.

Perfect location,close to tube, shops, and Kensington Palace. A short walk to Nottinghill and Portobello Road markets.The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Really safe area, lots of people around at night when walking back from the tube.The staff were friendly, especially the guest services staff who were very helpful with information. I will happily stay there again next time I'm in London.

The concierge kept our bags before we checked in, which was a great help as we arrived in London early. The staff wer friendly and the bed was super comfortable. We didn't eat in the hotel. Overall, we had a great time.

Great spot, handy to underground and buses and good value (on a deal). Good restaurants on site, hotel was secure and safe with plenty of staff. Nearby attractions include Kensington Palace which is open for tours until November, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Brompton Oratory, Harrods etc but easy access to transport to other must see spots.

The lobby is busy, so if you are tired after a long flight, it will not be a welcome sight. Get passed this, then th room is comfortable. Hotel is in a good quiet location if you want to be away from a busy city and yet access to the subway is good.

Average hotel but excellent location. Breakfast fine but staff too eager to collect cups and plates. It is in need of refurbishment to bring it up to the four star rating. Good restaurants near by, tube station a five minute walk away.

We found the location of this hotel fantastic. It was walking distance to the lovely Kensington Gardens and close to trains and buses. Traveling to Wimbledon was straightforward and easy.The room was great and the staff were helpful. There were plenty of shops close buy to do your shopping and good places to eat. It was our first time in London and we loved this part of town. Booking online was a breeze.

Very happy with this hotel. The location was great - about a 2min walk from High St Kensignton Station and walking distance to Kensignton Gardens & Hyde Park. The room was clean, a good size and very comfy bed was great. Shops are very close by including 'the muffin man' cafe which is quite cheap for good food. I also stayed at the neighbouring hotel next door as this is where our tour bus left from and the Copthorne Tara as far better in every aspect. I would stay here again

Loved my experience here! The staff were all friendly and nice, even when under pressure from a lot of customers. A moment's walk from the station, right near Kensington Palace Gardens for a lovely walk, and plenty of dining in the area.

The location is very ideal. The Concierge service is satisfactory. Nonetheless the room is very outdated with worn out carpets and very small pint sized twin beds hardly large enough to sleep on. The bathroom lacked basic amenities. This is certainly not a four star hotel. More like a three star. The location is the main stay of this hotel

Excellent...we were laying over for two days returning from Singapore. Easy access from Heathrow on the Underground High St station in Kensington. Found a couple of good restaurants in the area. Loved the Club Room!
