Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great layout of hotel and great location. Only drawback was that the room had not been prepared for the third adult This was redressed but would have caused a delay had I not called ahead. Did not like the expectation that we would give a departure time, and especially the wake up at 0850 to ask when we would be leaving

Room is dated as remarked on other reviews, excellent value and lobby area and staff of a high standard. Unfortunately there was no sound proofing and we could hear almost every word the gentleman in the next room said and he was a very talkative chap. Light didn’t work on arrival but an engineer quickly came to address the problem. Shower good with great water pressure.

4/10 Poor

I had higher expectations. However, after check-in & got to a 2nd floor room, noticed the deco looked tired. Bath deco was also dull, dated & worn. As soon as I turned the bath tap on, the water only trickled down & no hot water. Furthermore, the loo flush handle didn’t work. So I rang reception to request a room change. She asked me to go back down. The receptionist offered me another room on the same floor, 3 doors away. To which I said what if it has similar issues and I wouldn't be happy. After few requests, the receptionist changed to another room on the 8th floor. This time around, the bath water was hot and strong water flow. The toilet flush handle worked, but it definitely needs adjustment so its positioned horizontally as you would expect (not at 140 degrees, which means it needs to turn another 90 degrees further to flush, which is not normal and awkward on the wrist to use). I thought all was fine, however, it was only when I got back to the hotel in the evening that I found out that the whole room was cold, there was no heating control. There was a standalone air cooling unit with its air intake pipe messy & fully exposed, looking very messy, & it didn't serve the purpose. For both nights I slept in cool temperature. On the morning I was due to check out, I asked the cleaning lady about heating. She confirmed the heating in my room was not working, that she had reported it to the reception previously but no action had been taken. Overall very disappointing stay

We were surprised to find that the bar closed at 11pm even to residents and it was very disappointing that no menus were in the room so we decided to eat elsewhere. The QR Code on the welcome card did not work either and we could not get past the Terms & Conditions page.

The Hotel was in need of an upgrade in particular the bedrooms, really tired looking. Also, the staff at Breakfast were rude & inexperienced. Really bad. Also the standard and quality of the food at Breakfast was very poor. Big improvements overall needed.

I had a very nice stay at the Copthorne Tara Hotel. The staff was professional and very helpful. The breakfast buffet was varied and plentiful. The area is wonderful - great shopping and the Tube is literally around the corner. My room was very clean. Great stay.

Asked and paid for double room got twin but beds pucshed together, hair on the bedding (not ours) Loud noise from other rooms. Was woke up by security asking us to be quiet, the party was coming from 2 doors down. I was kept awake by the party until 4am after. Services proved at the hotel are very convenient.

We loved the location. It was quiet but the high street and Tube were a couple of minutes away. The hotel had restaurants, bar and cafe which was very handy. Staff were attentive. Our room was big and airy with air conditioning and all the usual ammenites but with athe bonus of a fridge. Overall very pleased with the hotel and we would definitley return.
