    Good Hotel Guide Review

    In an ‘interesting’ area with ‘many individual shops and cafés’, the Miller family’s ‘amiable’ Georgian-fronted hotel is liked for its ‘nicely old-fashioned’ ambience and attention to detail. ‘All the brass shines on the attractive entrance. With the union flag flying above, it makes a welcoming sight,’ says a regular Guide reader this year. Inside, public rooms filled with antique furniture, paintings and prints ‘give the hotel that special character’. Choose among the individually designed bedrooms, which vary in size and aspect. ‘Down a pleasant, well-lit corridor, our fresh, refurbished room was fairly compact but attractive, with a well-designed bathroom. We’d requested a rear room on an upper floor to escape traffic noise; ours was quiet, with large windows that opened. We slept well.’ Chef Cara Baird’s modern British menu, perhaps with ‘excellent’ guineafowl (‘and more vegetables, please!’), is taken in the wood-panelled dining room. In the morning, a ‘tasty, well-presented’ (and individually priced) breakfast is cooked to order; ‘tea, butter and marmalade are served in a silver-plated pot, which adds style’. (Max Lickfold, and others)

    'Still excellent, and reasonable pricing for central London. Breakfast extensive and tasty: no piped music, butter in dishes, excellent quality of tea. Bedrooms traditional, well appointed and cosy. Friendly service throughout. ' - Max Lickfold - December, 2016
    'We loved Durrants last year as we had a perfect, silent room and the best three nights' sleep we had ever had in London. We requested the same room, this month but were assured Room7 would suit us. It was at the front, and as we live in the country the traffic noise kept us awake. We like the ambience of the hotel and the staff are on the whole delightful: An amazing head porter. Irritating to charge separately for breakfast. ' - D B - July, 2014
