Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location and the buffet breakfast are both great.

The real question is are they in the process of renovation, or are they in the middle of a demolition? Shabby, stopped up sink, heat that wouldn't shut off. Staff is attentive and friendly. Convenient location

Nice hotel but very busy - group tour buses and airline crews make a large portion of their business.

The best thing about this place is the location. The facilities and staff are adequate--but nothing special.

Convient location. Room cleaned well and when we asked for a room change, we were accommodated and extra supplies given. Staff didn't know area when I asked about local pubs or nearby stores.

Excellent value in good location, 10 minute walk through very nice neighborhood to Earl's Court underground station. Plenty of amenities on site, including great little coffee shop. Rooms were modern, good size, and well maintained. Will definitely stay here again.

heating didnot work, very noisy when fan or heater turned on

could not really say if the heating worked or not - switched thermostat setting to the max [i guess 26 deg c], , and moved fan setting to 1 - no apparent heat coming, a little annoying noise; noise more annoying at the 2 setting and very annoying when set at 3 with cold air blowing instead of heat - decided to switch off. Bathroom drain had an annoying suction system when taking a shower, but only for that short duration. Also the bath door "stall " would not close - causing some water to splash out.

Our non-smoking room smelled like someone had been smoking in it moments before we arrived. Our AC didn't work properly. The furniture was very old and needed to be replaced. The hotel is in a great location, but is in heavy need of a renovation. Overall Disappointing.

London is a very nice place. we toured different places and Windsor castle is amazing. Stonehenge is very unique. Kensington palace is also great.

My daughter, granddaughter, and I stayed at the hotel 5 nights. The staff was very helpful and always available to answer any questions. I highly recommend this hotel.

Worn, old fixtures, idiosyncratic lighting controls in the rooms. The management of the bar is terrible. Three nights in a row I had to chase the staff to get a drink--and then wait to get my bill. Fire them all--or at the very least get some management.

First time in London and heard horrible stories about hotels, but I'm happy to say this one was a pleasant surprise. It was in a great neighborhood and the staff was very nice.

The hotel easy to reach in Kensington by taxi or public transport . In the area you will find several small pubs (not many) and restaurants of medium to good quality. The hotel staff is pleasant and working to make your stay good. The hotel has a brasserie and Chinese style restaurant with good quality food and ok prices. The staff of restaurant is friendly. Generally the rooms have most amenities you might expect.

9 days and 8 nights...it was not excellent but it is very comfortable except on a day the aircondition did not work but was fixed the following day. There was one staff who was curt and was not happy serving us...maybe because it was late in the evening. Thank you.

Very nice. Modern condition and updated. Large room for London. Very convenient to tube and shops. Horrible WiFi and no business center.

Great location, great neighborhood. Room lacked storage drawers, no shears on windows, curtain rod not attached on each end.
