Copthorne Tara Hotel
- What's Included
The hotel was very clean and well decorated. Our room was well presented and had a very nice large bathroom with bath and shower. The room however was located at the back of the hotel and when you opened the curtains you were presented with railway lines. When trains went by, which was very frequently, you could hear them although the noise was not deafening. The choice at breakfast was very good but the full English needed to be kept hotter, The biggest problem was the lifts and lack of public stairs. The lifts were always full and did not always conform to instructions as to which floor you wanted. We were very surprised that there was only a public staircase to the first floor and for any higher floor the lift had to be used. We were told that some members of the public used the service stairs but I am afraid the lack of public stairs was a drawback for us.
All things considered this hotel is excellent value for money.Great mid week rate including breakfast.Check in was simple and we were given an available room early which was great.The rooms were basic, perhaps a little old but clean and comfortable. Some things others may find irritable; the walls were by no means sound proof and if you had a noisy neighbour you would hear them.Also, the fridge, which cannot be unplugged clicks on and shuts down every few minutes which has a noise of its own.There is a safety deposit box in the room that is used with a key pad, a comfortable bed and decent sized bathroom.Breakfast was ok, average.There was a lot of airline staff at the hotel, Aer Lingus, Thai Airways etc.. And one issue was (particularly noticeable in the morning when trying to check out with bags in tow) was that the lifts were busy and it took 15 minutes and many passing lifts to get to the ground floor.Check out was simple..I used the car park, which was £25 for 24hrs which is a good rate (£36 for same at Holiday Inn next door). However, I wouldn't have fancied turning up late and wishing to get a space. At a guess, there are 40-60 spaces, for a hotel with hundreds of rooms.The tube is close by, with Hyde Park and Albert Hall within walking distance.We used UBER to get to and fro, a ride during the day (to Mayfair area) cost about £8, cheaper at night £6.The area around is nice, with a 5 minute walk to the high street. It aways felt safe and there were no issues.I would return, the place is great value and good to base yourself.
I was there... they gave me the wrong room, then the changed for a second room it was all dirty with some towels on the floor and etc, them I went to a 3rd room it was al cold and not in a good condition finally st the 4th attempt I got a decent room, breakfast was ok but the glasses and cups weren't wash correctly was a strong odour of egg in the cups like they wash the with out washing up liquid
If I could give this hotel a zero I would. I rated it (also poorly) 2 years ago after staying here for a work trip. This year we considered taking a business group of 60 guests back here ONLY on the basis that the hotel assured us in a contract we would receive the renovated rooms as advertised on their website. Upon arrival today, my clients all started contacting me saying their rooms were outdated and old. Upon checking into my own room, I realized we once again were given the older rooms, which are basically not any better than a youth hostel. Not just tiny but EXTREMELY outdated. The electric switch panel looks like something from 1960 as does most of the hotel halls and lobby. I spoke with the front desk about moving to one of the renovated rooms we were promised and they moved me from floor 2 to 10 (Club level). These rooms are not much better and definitely DO NOT math what is on the hotel website. Am now wondering if the website rooms exist at all! The 'updated' room is still tiny, basic and outdated. There is a beautiful hotel next door where the rooms are small but beautifully appointed as is the lobby- I suggest you stay there if you care about comfort and getting what you are promised.
Well as rule hotel of this level would not expect this level pf feedback but sadly some points do let it down Fristly the shower is beyond shockling bad absolutely no pressure at all having a bath was more enjoyable literally it was that bad went to front desk before i could finish they knew this is an issue unfortunately !!!! 2nd of all the breakfast included well hmmm as buffet wide selection but dont expect hot breakfast more warm to cold english breakfast and enimic toast
