Copthorne Tara Hotel
- What's Included
If you are picky about hotels this is not the place you would choose. This is a worn hotel. In my room, there was a somewhat funny smell (a mix of old after shave and, perhaps, old smoke or something), and window cannot be opened. The carpet had many stains, the refrigerator kept me more or less awake, and so did my neighbor due to poor sound proofing. Also, the food in this hotel was of poor to moderate quality. All that said, the beds were ok, the staff is very helpful and sweet, and the conference rooms are ok. Also, the location is very convenient (Kensington). I think this hotel fits best for those who don´t bother much about esthetics, who sleep well wherever they are and who want a nice location. Then it may be a good and pragmatic choice.
The property is quite dated from outside and needs a refurbishment. However the lobby looks very beautiful and big. WiFi is free but is very slow. Reason to give 5 stars is due to the amazing level of service right from check in.Helpful receptionists and housekeeping staff. Had some issues with heating in the room which was sorted straightaway with an option given to change the room. However we wanted to sleep after a long flight so refused. Breakfast was very busy but the 10 mins wait was worth it. Location is very central with tube station and high street on 2 mins walk.We lost our invoice so had to call the hotel afterwards and was really impressed by speaking to some lady in accounts Ulga, who sent a copy to our email while we were on the phone with her.Will definitely visit again !
Club rooms are ok if a little dated but the club lounge really needs extending huge queues for breakfast and insufficient staff crockery etc very poor experienceLimited free drinks wine only red or white and poor quality
I stayed here for the first time in November '16 due to attending a conference in the hotel, and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are of a very good size, and I had a bath, rather than just a shower. A good sized TV, a very comfortable bed, and a desk area too. A great breakfast followed a good nights sleep!
Excellent value for money, all of the top London attractions an easy journey away, and literally a 2 min walk from High Street Kensington. Service was good, rooms were perfectly adequate and breakfast was exactly what would be expected at any decent hotel. The reason for not giving 5 is only really around the evening menu, which was Singaporean/Chinese. We didn't eat here, so I can't comment on the quality, but it wasn't what we fancied. No big deal, there are hundreds of eateries close by to choose from. I would be looking here first for my next similar trip.
