Durrants is an elegant older hotel in a converted Regency row just along from Marylebone High Street and opposite the back of the Wallace Collection. I think I am correct in saying that it is still not part of any chain, so has a kind of relaxed intimacy not found in larger hotels: wood panelling, antique ambiance etc. It is... More

We stayed at the Durrants because of its proximity to my daughter's school. The location was awesome - a half block to Marylebone High St. with its great bars, restaurants and shopping. We could easily walk to the subway station. The hotel itself is very quiet, old London. Rooms were small but really clean. I loved the old fashioned keys.... More

This hotel is one of the best that we have stayed in. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to visit again. The staff were polite and courteous, the breakfast was delicious and last but not least the bed was extremely comfortable.

My husband and I have stayed at the Durrants Hotel at various times over the past 23 years, but haven't been here since 2004. We booked the Durrants without thinking, and were most disappointed by a few things. As a previous reviewer has said, the public areas are well presented and clean, and nicely decorated. The breakfast room, very pleasant... More

arrived for a single night stay for a business trip. The location is terrific, a short walk from either Baker st or Marble Arch tube and close to a wide range of restaurants and bars. Thats the main positive! The hotel is trying to create the atmosphere of a gentleman's club and it does succeed in the public areas.Check in... More

Durrants is a great independent hotel in a great neighborhood just up from Thayer Street restaurants. Hyde Park is nearby as well and only 10 minutes from Bond Street underground. The hotel is very much full of old world charm, decor, antiques and style including an old fashioned porter's desk and luggage service. Maids even turn down your bed in... More

We stayed at 19/6/10 on recommendation from a friend. It is a most welcoming, comfortable traditional hotel, with staff who clearly take pride in their jobs. The service was a perfect balance of friendly professionalism. We would definitely stay at Durrants Hotel again.

I was looking for a few weeks at hundreds of hotels in London I narrowed it down to about 5 hotels as a surprise birthday pressie for my husband. I chose the Durrants as I thought it was the hotel my husband would prefer as he is keen on architecture and we both love history so this one being a... More

This hotel located in Marylebone was a great location. The Wallace Collection across the street is a bonus. Many restaurants and shops in the area. Convenient to 2 tube lines. This is an old building so will only appeal to those who like some character. The rooms facing the street can be noisy as the windows are only single pane.... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
