Not a 4 star hotel, torn furniture in the bedrooms, disgusting brown carpet in the bedrooms with what looked like blood stains. Noisy with ac/ fridge and train noise. No customer service from reception- rude staff, no welcome and tried to charge different room rates from what had been confirmed. After 2 days told us we were leaving, when we booked for 4 nights. Room keys deactivated and just in general not a nice place to stay for more than one night. bathroom was the best feature as it was clean and looked like it may have been updated. The rest of the room was tired with dirty walls, old furniture and soft furnishings.

Copthorne Tara is a true no frills hotel and does not pretend to be anything else. You get what you pay for and more. It’s not strong on customer service as it seems woefully understaffed but if that’s what you want then you can pay a prince’s ransom somewhere else. The Copthorne is clean, it’s well located, most amenities work although their is a strain on the elevator system at peak. It is in fact a comfortable hotel to stay in and is why I have been a loyal patron for over 20 years.

Another comfortable sleep in your lovely hotel. As on previous occasions we were able to check in early, and, on this occasion, due to an error with our booking we had our room upgraded. The room, 1171, on the 11th floor afforded marvellous views across London. However, this room was in need of a little tlc and attention to detail. One of my pillows was missing a pillowcase; the light control switch by the side of the bed was not fixed to the wall, and the lights in general were erratic. The door chain was also missing. Breakfast, though plentiful, was very busy, and the availability of cutlery was very poor, the breakfast staff were slow to rectify this. The choice of food for breakfast though, was very good. These are only minor niggles and would not put us off staying with your again.
