Good Hotel Guide Review

With gilt-framed paintings, a panelled dining room and ‘quiet corners and pretty public spaces to sit and chat in’, the Miller family’s hotel steeps in an ‘old-worldly Edwardian club atmosphere’ in the ‘restless heart of the town’. Despite the traditional feel, time hasn’t stood still: a return visitor was ‘impressed by the improvements they’ve made over the years, including refurbished bathrooms and bedroom decor, and more generous lounge areas’. Guide readers in 2017 praise the attention to detail throughout: the silver-plated teapots, the ‘gleaming brass rails’, the ‘neat period uniforms’ for chambermaids, the ‘very welcome tea’ after a day in town. ‘How splendid that such a place lives on!’ Follow ‘winding corridors’ to the ‘well-appointed bedrooms’ – the quietest overlook a mews at the rear. In the restaurant, the cooking ‘speaks of older, comforting verities’, perhaps roast duck, purple kale, orange and golden raisin sauce. (A set menu is ‘sufficient, and well priced’.) At an ‘extensive, tasty breakfast’, find ‘good healthy options and plenty of cooked delights’. (Keith Salway, Max Lickfold, Ralph G Wilson)

Guest comments

'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
