Positive Reviews

In the Heart of Kensington

Placed in the heart of Kensington, the Copthorne Tara London Kensington is an ideal hotel to launch your London sightseeing from, especially for Royal enthusiasts wanting to soak up the old world charm and a quick tube ride elsewhere.

Great Value for Money

For the price, compared to other hotels in the area, the Copthorne Tara offers good value for money.

Big Rooms for London

Located in a quiet side of an older suburb you might expect the rooms of the hotel to be small but many guests were pleasantly surprised by the rooms’ space compared to other London rooms, and it’s cleanliness.

Welcoming Staff

Many guests have found the staff at Copthorne Tara London Kensington to be helpful and cheerful, willing to assist with any needs or local advice.

Negative Reviews

Paying for Wi-Fi

Now a free standard in many hotels across London, complimentary Wi-Fi is only available to the more expensive rooms at the Copthorne Tara London Kensington.

Priced Parking

While parking is available, there is a charge and prices seem inflated due to the service on offer, while some guests suggested a flawed payment system created an over-charge for them.

Good for Trainspotters

Its proximity to Kensington centre makes Copthorne a popular hotel, however, a train line runs too close to some rooms, creating noise pollution Ask for a room on the other side of the hotel if possible.

Vintage or Just Old?

While the Copthorne Tara London Kensington conveys vintage British charm, some guests found the hotel furnishings simply tired and worn out.
