About Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington


Expensive European cars and up-market stores set the scene for this unassuming hotel near Kensington's high street. Sharing a district with London's affluent, Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington benefits from high-end environs while allowing easy access to the rest of London via the nearby High Street Kensington tube. Both the West End and the shopping of Piccadilly Circus are only a few stops away on the Circle line, and in the immediate vicinity, guests can make use of a plethora of Art Deco shops, pubs, and cafes. For those with a few quid still left by the weekend, Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington is just one stop away from the Portobello Road markets and antique stores in Notting Hill. At the end of the day, guests can come back to a room with a good view, a comfortable bed, and enough space to throw down their shopping bags.

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).
