Good Hotel Guide Review

Close to the hurly-burly of Marylebone High Street, the Miller family’s hotel ‘remains a well-polished haven of rather eccentric good care’. Its walls host gilt-framed paintings and ‘gleaming brass rails’, chambermaids wear ‘neat period uniform’, there are ‘quiet corners where one can read in peace’. ‘It is solid, respectable, unchanging,’ writes a returning visitor in 2018. Of course, over the years, there have been tweaks within the Georgian walls. The refurbished ‘comfortable’ bedrooms display classical and antique furniture, harmonious prints; each has a hand-made bed, a flat-screen television, high-end toiletries in the neat bathroom. The quietest overlook a mews at the rear. In the wood-panelled dining room, the ‘only music is the contented murmur of diners. The rare roast beef, carved from a trolley, was some of the best I have enjoyed anywhere.’ The ‘excellent’ breakfast offers good healthy options and cooked fare including a ‘cheese omelette, light and airy’. One reader’s room had a faulty cistern and loo seat; ‘I forgave them because they are courteous, welcoming, convenient, and slightly batty.’ (Robert Cooper, Keith Salway, and others)

Guest comments

'I have stayed at this lovely hotel for many years. Last Wednesday I took two Austrians and two Italians to stay there with me, and it did not fail to please in every respect. If you like a traditional hotel, one that is spotlessly clean and well polished, Durrants is hard to beat at the price. I love the entrance, the restaurant, and the enlarged area for seating by the use of the former breakfast room. Breakfast of smoked haddock and poached egg was delicious ' - Ralph Wilson - March, 2019
'A well polished haven of rather eccentric good care. Willing if not always expert staff abundant. Teresia, the ever helpful manager, and Clive, the cheery head porter. An excellent breakfast (cheese omelette light and airy and as good as anyone's) still comes curiously priced toast by toast but -sensation! Neither the cistern nor the shaver plug worked properly in my room but why is it I forgave them? -Because they are courteous and old style welcoming and convenient ' - Keith Salway - April, 2018
'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
