  • During the pandemic time, it was ok. Aircon is noise, not too many tv channels to choose…

    Hotel was excellent Location great in terms access to transport shopping and central London Staff were friendly helpful Breakfast in club was limited with refusal to provide an omelette unless we not eat other breakfast food which was disappointing

    The location of this hotel is wonderful. It is close to many of the key attractions of London. A comfortable stay in a nice, well appointed room.

    Everything was very good. They put on extra staff when there was lots of people to check in. Room was serviced to a high standard even though we were only out for half an hour for breakfast. Have a good size parking area but you have to pay for it. The Brassiere restaurant had a varied menu and food was excellent. Will stay there again. Location was excellent.

    They forgot to give us our wake up call at 4.30am luckily we woke 15 mins before our tour left, it was a bit stressful and missed being able to get water for our long trip all a bit rushed

    I have used the Copthorne more than any other hotel. Service was excellent and I am quite happy with it. However, rooms have insufficient drawer space for an extended stay, the lifts still seem to be an issue, and I was disappointed to find two of my favourite features gone i.e. the little paper and souvenir shop and the little coffee and snack cafe inside the entrance.
