Would recommend Sun, Jan 10, 2016
Have stayed at Tara a few times. Not a bad hotel. But rooms a bit tired. The heating system is noisy and almost constant during the night. Toilet seat not secure. Next time will go some where else.

Mavellous time

Would recommend Sun, Nov 1, 2015
My husband and I joined my mother and brother in staying at the Copthorne Tara on a family get together for my mother's 90th birthday. We had disabled friendly rooms which had all the facilities we needed. The rooms were spotless, beds very comfortable, plenty of soft towels and the temperature could be controlled. There was a good variety for breakfast and the hot food was well cooked. All the staff were very polite, helpful, nothing was any trouble to them and cheerful, even late at night. Thank you to all at the hotel for making our stay a memorable one. Hope to see you again soon.

Awesome first trip to London

Would recommend Tue, May 26, 2015
I had a great stay at Copthorne Kensington which is my first trip to London. Love the not too tourist atomsphere, felt we safe going back to the hotel at 10pm all nights that I was there. Close to High Street which made is very special & transportation was a breeze. You had the buses, underground & the cabs right at your door step so to speak. For a first timer in London got around very well with maps & directions from people I met along the way. People of London were very accommodating with directions. Will be back for round two sometime this year.

Special night out in town

Would recommend Mon, May 25, 2015
The hotel was everything I needed. Bed comfortable and huge and the deal was good with breakfast. I didn't use the internet as you had to pay extra and I didn't like that. Staff were pleasant but breakfast staff didn't seem to know what they were doing, We had to ask twice for Tea and Coffee to be served and they tried to give us someone else's change. That said the breakfast was good and nice selection. I would have liked the possibility of booking a carparking space before arrival as I was worried that I might not be able to park the whole journey up. I didnt use any amenities so cannot rate them. It was a good stay.

Best location

Would not recommend Wed, May 20, 2015
Hotel was perfectly adequate for a comfortable stay, rooms a bit tired. Huge drawback was the absence of wifi anyplace in the hotel, without paying 50 pounds extra per night for a room upgrade. In this day and age it was very poor not to be able to access wifi in any of the public areas. Would not stay again for this reason. Pity, great location.
