Kensington Mums reviews

About Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington

The Copthorne Tara Hotel is home to 833 bedrooms, including 7 suites and 5 family suites. The hotel offers a seamless blend of personalized service with unrivaled comfort.  The hotel is located steps away from the buzzing streets of Kensington High Street and nearby the iconic Royal Albert Hall, and local Kensington Museums including Natural history museum, science museum and Victoria and Albert Museum. The location is greatly situated for families visiting London as its only steps away from, shopping, bus stops and the TFL Underground station. We were delighted to have a staycation here during the festive period in London. The check in was super cute with kids, as they have a special corner for kids to check in with cookies and colouring pens ready. The huge teddy bear was so adorable that we couldn’t resist but to take a picture with. The staff were super friendly and we quickly got us up to our room.

The rooms

We checked into the family room on the first floor of the hotel. The room has a connecting room, composed of one double bed and 2 single beds. The room is ideal for families staying in London. There was a small sink in the bedroom, and a toilet in one bedroom and a bathtub with standing shower in the other.  The staff had left a teddy bear with colouring sheets of paper and a puzzle book with pens for our little ones which was super cute and that got them busy while we unpacked a bit. The hotel offers complimentary Wifi, in room safe and TV.


We loved the fact that the rooms were connecting, which gave the kids their privacy and we felt comfortable enough as the room had just a door in between so we could always peak on them.
