Copthorne Tara Hotel
- What's Included
Standard London hotel - nice reception and not much else. Room small, tired with broken shower and no bath towels. Breakfast was chaotic, even at 7am. No breakfast bowls, several unanswered requests for coffee and it was extremely congested. I would not return and would not recommend based on this experience.
Stayed for two nights as part of a family party. Room was of a good size and bed was very comfortable. Had a fridge and good size wardrobe. It is not a "fancy" hotel, but it is clean an well maintained and the staff I encountered were polite and helpful. The location is just off the high street where there are numerous shops and eateries. I would recommend and wouldn't hesitate to return.
Having booked four rooms through Booking.com we arrived at the hotel to be told they had no record of our booking! We were under time pressure as we had to attend a lunch elsewhere so left the reservation staff to sort out the problem.Later I received a phone call from the hotel advising that we were all being moved to a different hotel. I refused to be moved, we then had to return to the hotel to protest . Following one hour of argument we were finally allocated our rooms. The staff were unhelpful, the rooms were "dated" and overall we had a bad experience. We will never book into this hotel in the future and will not use bookings.com as our portal to book a hotel. Overall a bad experience.
Like most rooms in Europe it is small. On the up side it did have air conditioning and it worked really well. The hotel is in a quiet area and a short walk to a few decent shops. I had to stay here as part of a group tour. Not a place I would ever stay if I was on my own.
This hotel is close by to the tube. Close to Kensington Palace. Convenient and good value for the price. The front desk needs to be manned a little more efficiently. There was a line and only one staff member was assisting. Overall, the hotel serves its purpose and we would recommend it.
