Good Hotel Guide Review

‘An informal alternative’ to Pimlico’s pricey traditional hotels, The Orange is more like staying above a local pub – albeit a classy, artfully distressed local with an upmarket clientele. Sloane Square is just a five-minute walk away. In the ground floor’s spacious bar – ‘surprisingly busy even on a Monday night’ – exposed wood abounds: in the window frames, furniture and ceiling timbers, alongside muted hues, vintage posters. There are over 30 wines by the glass, local craft beers. Here, and one floor up, in the light, airy dining room with views of Orange Square, the ‘well-presented’ seasonal modern menu (British ingredients, European flourishes) includes such dishes as poached chalk stream trout, brown crab fritters, seaweed, sorrel hollandaise. Rising still further up narrow stairs, the ‘beautifully crafted’ top-floor bedrooms have calming earth tones, high ceilings, king-size beds and bathrooms in marble and limed oak. ‘We had the largest, on the corner overlooking Pimlico Road. There was some (inevitable) noise.’ Breakfast, in the bar, brings continental and cooked options. There is a small rustic roof terrace. The family-run Cubitt House group also own The Grazing Goat, London (see entry).

Guest comments

'A beautifully-proportioned Georgian building. On the top floor are four well crafted bedrooms. We liked ithe style (limed oak, wood flooring, high ceilings, engaging staff, a bustling atmosphere). As hotel guests, we were made to feel we belonged. Pimlico, the largest room, had three large sash windows, a wardrobe with free-range hangers, a large bed, a small writing table. The bathroom, done in marble and limed oak, had a strong shower, its own window. Some road noise (inevitable for London) . In the busy restaurant we enjoyed main courses from the seasonal menu. Breakfast is charged extra. Perfect scrambled eggs on decent toast; good tea and coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. ' - JT - October, 2014
