      Individual guest reviews

      • Couple
        5.4

        The location was great but that was really the only positive.

        We had to change rooms on our first morning as there was a flood in our bathroom, also the TV did not work properly. The room was very basic and needed re-decorating. Also got locked out of our room Sat night and got attitude from Reception when informing them, so not a pleasant experience overall.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Service of the Concierge was very good-very helpful when we lost a bag in a Black Cab.We use Tara Hotel each time we are in London from Singaporeat least 3 -6 times a year.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Cleaningness of sheets and towels, spacious room, great hotel staff, everyday room cleaning, very close to High Street Kensington tube station and just a short walk to Hyde Park, Coffee facilities, Warm water all day.

        Some stains in the carpet, Fridge could be bigger and less noisy, Airconditioning a bit noisy too. Bathroom tab could be updated from the cold-warm old system. TV's should become LCD.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        . the hotel is just right for the venue I was taking part in

      • Single
        4.6

        Terrible hotel staff rude and incompetent

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Convenient position close to everything but away from noise. Room decent size. Good standards.

        Not able to open window. Air conditioning leaves you feeling you are breathing recycled air. After sleep was not rested.

      • Couple
        5.4

        The lobby was very swish and the room fairly clean. The shower was very good. A good location and, luckily, the Circle Line was off this weekend so we took a nice walk to Notting Hill Gate - worth doing.

        The room was clean but a bit shabby - in need of decoration.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Location. Price. Stuff is very friendly and helpful.

        There is need in renovation I think since mine looked worn particularly in the bathroom.

      • Single
        9.2

        Went all over and did lot of shopping, I like Kensington and the location of the hotel

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Very helpful and efficient staff. Variety of eating options and 24hr availability of food

        Some from adjacent railway, even on 6th floor.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        I would recommend for its location however having stayed in one of their club rooms i feel that the furniture was rather tired for the price involved however glorious views!!

        Two arm chairs in the room would have been nice instead of one !!

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        I was offered use of the Business Office to print my e-mails and the Reception Staff were extremely helpful when I needed to extend my stay.

        Having the fridge was great - I would have appreciated some Mineral Water in the room on arrival.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Hotel staff were friendly and efficient, good location to many attraction spots and shops, very quite despite the lack of double glazing windows. Very bulky old A/C in the room, but it s working well.

        Poor selections of TV channels, TV set is very old, rooms windows are sealed completely (for security reasons) room appeal is quite old and small in size

      • Couple
        6.6

        Great location, but the hotel itself is looking a bit sad these days it could really do with a refit ,our room did not even have a flat screen TV, and the bathroom was about as basic as you can get,but all in all not an unpleasant stay

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Great location. Poor breakfast only barely warm. limited bar. Very friendly staff.
