Great staff and hotel
We were working in London for 2 days and knew things were going to be very changed during the Covid lockdown. The hotel staff are friendly, helpful and very informative. Food is available - but limited menu and room service only. They are doing a sterling job. The hotel is immaculately clean and like all working while many are safely at home the staff should be commended. Thank you

great stay
I arrived probably at the worst day of the year due to the Coronavirus evolving situation. The staff was very professional and friendly, hotel location very convenient for tube. I had room service (dinner) and enjoyed that. Good variety during breakfast. This was my first time in several years staying there and I would go again

Lovely stay at the Copthorne
Very pleasant stay, we paid for the upgrade which was on offer and well worth it, breakfasts were good apart from running out of certain items and having to wait quite a while for them to be replaced. Staff were very friendly & helpful, nothing was too much trouble, will definitely stay again.

Hotel great, booked process can improve
The hotel was very pleasing to us and staff were very friendly. The issue was with the booking process. We booked a superior room for 3, when we arrived at the hotel we were told that we could not have a superior room for 3. so why was it an option when booking? I was not offered any refund but had to have a smaller room so that my son could have a pop up bed. This should have been made clear from the outset.

Just an OK stay
Trip to London to celebrate birthhday. Stayed here some years ago but unfortunately nothing has changed. Staff were ok but hotel needs complete refurb. Rooms dated and breakfast in Club Room was cold and not appertising.

Not what is was
I usually stay here quite often, but over the past three months the hotel has gone down hill. The first room I had, the bathroom had been walled papered all over in clouding the shower and it looked dreadful. The joins in the corner didn’t line up where it had been patched. The toilet constantly ran water into the bowl. I reported it at 4.30pm, reception said maintenance would come and fix it. @8:30pm I was still waiting. No one came. The in room Telephone didnt work, so I had to keep going down to reception. Tried to order room service at the bar, they said I had to call to order it. I explained the phone didn’t work in my room and they sent me to reception. Reception sent me back to the bar and they reluctantly ordered my food. I moved rooms eventually at 9pm. The new room - the tv didn’t work. Called reception - maintenance had finished for the evening. It was a shocking stay. One of the lifts has been out of order for months and on the 12th floor, there is huge false wall in the middle of the floor by the lifts, where they are trying to fix something. Seriously thinking enough is enough with this hotel.
