Good Hotel Guide Review

Tourists should ‘forget fancy London hotels’, say readers, and instead head out to Ruth and Samantha Trinder’s hotel close to Richmond Park, with tranquil riverside garden and terrace. Originally two Georgian town houses, it was once home to Victorian poet ‘Michael Field’ (the nom de plume of Katherine Bradley) and Edith Cooper, her niece (and lover). True to its romantic past, it is a popular wedding venue. Bedrooms, several with a ‘beautiful view of the Thames’, have a mix of antique-market finds and contemporary furniture, cool, modern decor, bespoke bed frames, perhaps an in-room copper bath, a marble walk-in power shower. The bar has a menu of ‘Bingham bites’ with the likes of duck liver on toasted sourdough; cauliflower risotto with hazelnut crumble. In the coolly elegant restaurant, Andrew Cole’s short seasonal British menus include such dishes as beef sirloin, asparagus, raw button mushrooms, wild garlic; cod, clams, sweet potato, spring onion, buttermilk sauce; potato dumplings, cauliflower, wild garlic, pickled morels. Guests can use the facilities at sister company bhuti, nearby (yoga, pilates, a vegan tearoom), or borrow a bike to see the park deer.

Guest comments

'Lovely outlook over the river. No traffic noise. Staff were mostly young, foreign and helpful. Very good food, though portions not suitable for rugby players. Poor bedside lighting. ' - JW - March, 2014
'A hidden gem, near enough to London to get all the benefits but far enough away to be tranquil, and with beautiful views of the Thames and surrounding countryside to boot. The interior is sumptuous. The staff couldn't do enough to help. The restaurant has amazing food and one of the best views you could hope for in London. It's not cheap, but the price is completely justified for the experience. ' - MM - September, 2013
