Good location. Decent stay for a short trip to London
Room and bathroom although needs updating is perfectly adequate. Staff were friendly and got seen to very quickly. The breakfast buffet selection was good. Situated very close to High Street kensington and Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park and a boris bike rack for those days you feel like cycling through the city. Would recommend the hotel.

Good location
Nicely located, just 2 minutes walk from High Street Kensington tube station. Overall was an okay hotel. I booked the hotel without breakfast and didn't even try their food because it's just not interesting. Many great restaurants are nearby and you could have better food outside the hotel.

Very good value all round
Staff cheerful, friendly and attentive. Particularly impressive was the mature gentleman who took care of a packed executive lounge in a highly professional manner in the early evening on Saturday. Location extensive parking facilities .and congenial surroundings contributed to a very pleasant stay

Walking weekend
Weekend break with friends. Tara Copthorne well located off Kensington High Street. Hotel price very reasonable but added a £15 breakfast which was not value for money.

Fantastic location!
The perfect base for a few days in London. Great value, good breakfast and nice rooms - one criticism - small beds, but enough space in rooms for a Queen or King! Shame! Otherwise, very good stay. Definitely will stay again!

Terrible experience.
Upon check-out day, some staff went out from my room while i'm having a breakfast. I had light meal and went up within 5-10mins. No sure but my pulse was opened. Asked to front-desk but just asking me whether I lost something or not, mentioned that staff might check the shampoo etc. It's insane as it'a around 7am in the morning. No helpful from the frontdesk, just be careful your pulse/bags/something important if you stay at this hotel.

No recommendation
1. Nearest Station is under construction at the moment so couldn't get any benefit for location. 2. Upon check out during breakfast, went to the restaurant then just had light meal then went up to my room. There's house-keeper suddenly came out when I opened the door. was very surprised as it's absolutely unexpected situation that I have(it's before 7AM!). Asked house-keeper's explanation to Front-desk, Chinese speaking staff kept asking me only that I had lost something. (Yes, my pulse was opened in my shoulder bag). However just saying that house-keeper did a job to check some shampoo etc. what..? at 7am? during guest is having breakfast and even checked out yet?? Asked front-desk to house-keeping dept, of course, Manager explained there's no procedure to check with front-desk whether guest actually checked out or not, have just paper when guest's check out. So it's possible to get in the room. Doesn't make sense at all. * 2 of front-desk were sarcastic me that i asked kind of ridiculous question to house-keeping which was very important for me to understand this happen. Under this circumstance definitely never will be back/recommend this hotel. Kindly be careful to keep yours pulse when you go out during staying at this hotel.

Location
The location is very good - walking distance to restaurants and shops. The hotel is a bit outdated and there were no staff to help us bring up our luggages.
