 "Great hotel, ideal location"
Very warm greeting on arrival, quick check-in with no queues. Chose t pay £25 upgrade to get a room higher up (which also meant we had breakfast included plus a few extras), not sure it improved the view very much (I'm a country girl so a view of concrete buildings doesn't do much for me!) but it did mean no noise what-so-ever. Effective air-con unit which came in very handy as we were staying during a heat wave (quit laughing all you aussies, it WAS hot!) Room was clean and comfortable and certainly big enough for two people staying for 2 nights. Plenty of towels, tap water was drinkable and tea and coffee making facilities all provided. Sufficient wardrobe (inc hangers) and draw space for two females on a shopping trip.

Breakfast provided a good buffet selection of well cooked food, choice of 2 juices, water, milk etc. Plenty of tea and coffee brought to your table by friendly staff

We didn't get a chance to use the bar despite having vouchers for a free cocktail each but that was only because we wanted to do so much during our stay

Location was brilliant, 5 minute walk to High Street Kennsington underground station and a 15 minute walk to the Royal Albert Hall.

 "Women's Institute Centenary Stay"
I had two great days at staying at the Copthorpe Tara Kensignton hotel. The staff coped really well with the surge of WI members booking in for our Buckingham Palace Garden Party and WI AGM at The Royal Albert Hall.
My room was good,staff very helpful,my only disappointment was internet access,the charges for the room should include free internet access. I notice lots of comments about this .Come on Millennium Group update your policies.Free internet and I would have rated you Excellent throughout.

 "Mainly good but disappointing aspects"
The hotel overall was fine but we were disappointed with the room. It was a twin room and there were no bedside tables, which was extraordinary. We had to shift the furniture around so one of us could use the desk as a bedside table. The bathroom had no magnifying mirror, no extractor fan (which meant it became very steamed up) and the toilet was malfunctioning (in order to flush we had to really work at it!) Because of the toilet we thought about asking for a room change but as we'd unpacked by then and it was only for one night we decided to tough it out. The beds were comfortable and the room surprisingly quiet. I wasn't too impressed with breakfast (no mushrooms, which as I am a vegetarian, was important!) lacklustre fruit and badly cooked fried eggs, in a crowded dining room with loud and inappropriate music playing - if we stay there again we won't bother with the breakfast option.

 "Incredibly quiet for a busy hotel"
Great position in Kensington, I was amazed at how quiet it was in the room considering that the hotel was very busy. Made a change not to hear everything going on around. Good rooms, efficient breakfast, perfect for an overnight stay in London.

 "Thanks Copthorne Tara for an enjoyable stay."
My wife and I have just returned from a seven night stay in the Copthorne Tara. The level of service experienced across all areas of the hotel was excellent. Our room on the ninth floor was clean, comfortable and well maintained throughout our stay. Noise was not a problem. The hotel is well situated only a short distance from High St Kensington Tube station. Breakfast was very good as were the evening meals taken in the hotel. We would recommend this hotel to others and will most certainly return in the future.

 "A pleasant surprise"
I had no idea when I booked it that the hotel was a) so big and b) so close to High Street Ken tube station.The room was a great size, with loads of storage (more than some self catering places). There was a stanin on the bed sheet when we arrived but housekeeping changed it as soon as we alerted them to it.All staff were very friendly and highly professional.

 "Would recommend if not spending a lot of time in your room"
The hotel itself (restaurant, public space etc.) was nice. Not much for curb appeal and kind of noisy at night with the train tracks right out our window. The guestrooms were just okay. Service was great from what we experienced. Very helpful and friendly from the front desk to concierge to housekeeping - top notch! On that same note about train tracks - it was a nice location, quiet area of Kensington with two Underground stops within close walking distance making it easy to get anywhere in London via the subway.

 "Could not speak high enough of this place!"
This hotel is amazing! It's in a great location just one street back from Kensington high street. Everything you need is just around the corner including public transport, supermarkets, Hyde park etc. Being our first time in London we were totally lost as to how to get anywhere but all if the staff were always on hand to help us out anyway possible, in particular Joshua, Billy and Jami. The room was good for us as we didn't spend a lot of time in it, our room did back on to the train tracks but we didn't notice the noise at all! Once again this place is amazing and I'm sure you'll love it! Can't wait to come back to London!!

 "Good for a tourism visit"
the hotel is ok, not as great as you expect for a 4* hotel, but it has a great location for a reasonable price as a base for tourism all around the city.Rooms ok, very clean and average services, except for internet expenses.Remember to ask for an odd number room, not at the side of the tube railways. We hadn't any noise for recovering and sleep after long days of walking around.
