A refined bolthole in London’s exclusive suburb of Kensington, with a stylish Asian restaurant, a brasserie and tea room - includes breakfast

  • Find an authentic taste of Singaporean, Cantonese and Malay delicacies at the colonial-inspired Bugis Street restaurant. An extensive a la carte menu comes packed with speciality favourites, like mee goreng, nasi goreng, and Singapore laksa. Who needs Chinatown when you’ve got this?

  • Zesty cocktails, champagne and British pub grub are all on the menu at the Brasserie Restaurant & Bar. Artist Corner is your go-to for modern British and European dining, while Cafexpress is a bright and breezy spot for light bites and mellow coffee blends. A fan of high tea?

How to get there

The Copthorne is based in a prime central London location; High Street Kensington station is just two minutes’ walk away and Earl’s Court is within a ten-minute stroll. The closest airport is London Heathrow, easily reachable via tube. The journey takes around an hour and will cost around £5-7. You can also get here via the Heathrow Express, based out of London Paddington.

London Gatwick Airport is around 75 minutes away and you’ll need to change to a train at London Victoria. London Stansted, Luton. City and Southend airports are slightly further away and will require changing at various stations across the city.

In general, you’re best buying a pay-as-you-go oyster card to use during your time in London. It can be used on all forms of transport and is generally the cheapest way of getting around.
