I wanted somewhere close to the underground station, well Gloucester Road Underground was on the doorstep, perfect.
The hotel was busy which is good and if you want to escape and go for a walk there is plenty to do and see within 20 minutes walk, a number of cafes are local and a stream of taxis are available.
Victoria Train and coach station is just two stops away on the underground, served by the circle line and district, which means visiting Westminster and the Tower of London very easy. The main Museums are nearby so the hotel offers much due to its location.
Oh I nearly forgot great conference centre.

Perfect location to be. Close to Hyde Park and an easy walk to Big Ben and Parliament. Plenty of good restaurants within a block of the hotel. I would have no issues staying here again based on the sub $200 rate I got on Expedia. Well worth that for the level of comfort and location.

We upgraded upon arrival to club room , lovely big room with adequate facilities. Bed smaller than ours at home(7ft) but very comfy. We have always stayed at the Kensington Close for years but have used Tara for the last 4 visits,found it very good. Service is excellent especially the lovely Irish gentleman who looked after us in the club lounge. I think we will probably use this hotel again even though it is a good 15 pound taxi ride to the centre. We have been toying with the idea of using a more central hotel as the extra cost would be covered by taxi fares saved. We will see. Ps we think we were overcharged in the restaurant by approx 50 pound on Friday afternoon and we forgot to use our discount voucher!! Our own fault entirely as we were very tired when we arrived. Put it down to experience!
