All the comforts for a business traveller.
Location was great - 3 mins to Kensington High Street Station, lots of amenities, restaurants, shopping within a 10-min walk radius. Has all the amenities required of a 4/5 star hotel. I wasn't able to get a late check out - needed an extra few hours to finish the report for a client. But manager offered the use of the Executive Lounge instead. I decided to use the client's office instead. Good experience all around.

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!
