8/10 Very good

Generally great with a couple of shortfalls.
Second stay at the Tara and generally the staff were all very helpful and courteous. One or two little things let the side down but on the whole, I would stay again. I would respectfully suggest that the space between the secondary glazing and the original is cleaned better as mould was growing in that space in our room so I presume it is a problem in others too. Just a 30 second wipe down after each departure would suffice. The TV remote battery was flat but this is something guests should report on departure - as we did.

Great Location, Great Staff, Room Needs Repairs
We really liked the location of the hotel because it was close to the tube and there was plenty to do nearby. All of the staff were pleasant and very helpful. The lower score was related to the following room issues. (1) Our door was extremely noisy to open and close, nothing a little oil wouldn't correct. Why it wasn't corrected before is a mystery. Hotel staff are going in and out of the room daily and the noise is apparent. (2) The room was too warm and the thermostat could not be lowered nor was there a vent window that would let in fresh cool air. (3) There was a big hole right in the middle of our tub. We had a rubber bathtub mat thankfully, but you could feel your foot sinking into the hole. Confession time: we did not bring these things to the attention of the staff during our stay. We just dealt with them, but I hope the hotel will take care of these room problems. Would we stay there again? Yes, absolutely. They had good restaurants, the price was affordable, and the location was great for us to get on the tube and get anywhere in the city. Also, we rented two rooms due to the size of our party and the second room had no problems other than the heating.
