It is a reasonable hotel in a good position away from traffic noise. It is showing its age but has very helpful staff. For London the price is reasonable. We had standard rooms which were OK but worn. The cleanliness was good. Noise between rooms distrubing to a good sleep. No opening windows.The breakfast was acceptable but not great though you could eat as much as you wanted. Cooked breakfast was reasonable but coffee was poor, bread poor and marmalade poor. Rather industrial.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very dated. Being a disabled person who specified mobility scooter. Doorways and lift were inadequate. Both the single beds in twin room rolled across the floor when sat and nearly caused accident. Kettle was missing from room, which weren’t overly clean. And we were sent up to 12th floor and so far away from lift which was not suitable for disability.

Andrei Ticau and team were extremely kind, welcoming and made us feel at home! I made an enquiry with Copthorne Tara Kensington on the telephone and then Andrei called me back and booked rooms for my family and sorted everything out for our visit to London! Andrei and team were extremely friendly and went out of their way to welcome me and my family. They also made the occasion extra special by providing a birthday cake for both of my parents who's 60th birthday it was! The hotel was great value for money and the hotel was very clean, tidy and looked great! Breakfast was very good, tasty and had lots of options - they even catered for veg/vegans! The breakfast area does get busy, but they have lots of space to sit in peace without being disturbed! Great experience all round! I will ALWAYS recommend staying at the Copthorne Tara Hotel Kensington to anybody visiting London! Thank you so much! You made the whole experience a magical memory for my family and we will never forget it! Best wishes from the Indian family from Birmingham.
