Excellent stay at Copthorne.
Second stay at Copthorne Tara - six months apart and both times it has been excellent. All staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Breakfasts were great, rooms clean, we have no complaints at all. The Kensington location is fabulous for morning walks then a quick Tube ride to wherever for the day.

Over all very disappointing. We asked for early check in and rooms (had 2 booked) were not ready at 2. Hotel seems to be old, especially bathroom looked like it could use the renovation. Internet barely working and staff hang upon us when we called about bad internet. Would not stay again!

Booking error redeemed by staff, eventually
Booked a twin room, with a note that it was essential more than 4 months before our stay. Checked in and went up to the room to discover it was a double bed. After a very long wait at check in, I went back down and was told they had no twin rooms, and that it couldn't be guaranteed upon booking. When I told them that was unacceptable and pointed out the request (if they didn't have twin rooms available they should not have taken the booking), they eventually found me a twin room for the third night of the booking. The staff member was polite and did what she could to fix the mistake. Rooms were clean, breakfast was reasonable. Gluten free available on request (although some staff unaware of this, and tried to encourage me to eat the gluten filled pastries on the buffet).
