Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington, London
Great location
Great location! It allowed guests of ours to be comfortable exploring the area until we met them. Everything you need is around the corner including the underground . Staff were all very helpful. Rooms had very comfy beds. What more could you ask for!

Shocking stay I want a refund
I booked two rooms, one for my mother and her wife when I showed the receptionist my mum and her partner she had booked her in a standard twin and not the superior I had paid for. We then woke up to no hot water

poor customer service but pleasant room
The employee who checked us in was short and rude, she failed to tell us important things about our stay such us the option to use their portable phone (aka Handy). Also the hotel does not offer free parking, you must pay a daily rate of 30 pounds a day
