The Draycott

The Union flag flies above the entrance of this ‘sophisticated, very friendly’ luxury hotel, part of Adrian Gardiner’s Mantis Collection, on a quiet street near Sloane Square. ‘It is one my favourite hotels,’ said a visitor this year. ‘The impeccable service lives up to the cost,’ said Guide inspectors on an earlier visit. Occupying three red brick Edwardian town houses, the hotel has ‘a comfortable country house atmosphere’ and ‘lots of character’. Each of the original houses has a ‘fine’ wooden staircase and ‘a warren of corridors’; the high-ceilinged public rooms have antiques and paintings. In a ‘charming’ lounge, flagging guests are revived by complimentary refreshments: tea and home-made biscuits at 4 pm, champagne at 6 pm, hot chocolate and biscuits at 9.30 pm. Decorated with Edwardian antiques, theatrically themed bedrooms range in size from a small single room to a ‘beautiful’ suite overlooking the private garden square; a family suite is equipped with toys and Nintendo Wii. There is no restaurant, but snacks and hot dishes from the all-day room-service menu may be taken in the bedroom or the breakfast room. (Oliver Thomas)
  • One of my favourite hotels, quiet, sophisticated and very friendly. The suites overlooking the garden are beautiful. It's where I always go to when visiting London and not staying with friends
