My husband and I were at The Wallace collection and while searching for a lunch spot came across The Durrants Hotel. Wow... this hotel excels in elegance and sophistication. First we were greeted by an extremely well dressed, sophisticated (not to mention charming) young man, Ralph. Ralph showed us down a corridor- and our immediate impression was Country Georgian Manor- a perfect set for the likes of Downtown Abbey or some other elegant production.(Cumberbatch comes to mind.) I've since read reviews that have suggested it is a "gloomy" hotel. I need to disabuse the readers of reviews of this...Nothing about this hotel is gloomy. Not at all gloomy..it's what one might describe as " Genteel Elegance". The smaller rooms off from the main corridor are cheery, inviting and intimate. The main dining room is Elizabethan feeling with old wood panelling, which might account for the word gloomy. Oak panelling can perhap cast a feeling of dark to a room, but how many hotels boast of a room that looks Elizabethan or Tudor? As much as I like the new mode of " pattern clashing " decorating at hotels, nothing speaks of elegance like old wood panelling. The Durrants also has the advantage of being close to British Museum, The Wallace and a choice of many great outdoor cafes. It will be our go to hotel for all our next visits to London.

Durrant's is a really lovely old-fashioned English hotel. This was my second stay here. The breakfasts are really superb and the bar, which I didn't have time to visit this time, is classic, with a small but impeccably made range of drinks The staff is very good, particularly the night and weekend staff, which one wouldn't necessarily expect, and the rooms are quiet and very comfortably appointed. The only place where it falls down is the showers, which have low water pressure (this only makes it more English) and the fact that one sometimes has to ask for things in the rooms that one might expect to be there already, like robes, laundry bags and replenished toiletries. I also had to make clear that my teacup was used so that it would be replaced. I love the hallways - it's very easy to get lost. All my local relatives and friends who came to visit me were quite taken by it, too, and wondered how I'd found it. Through my mother! who told me to stay there when another hotel I'd used on business trips was too expensive (because I was paying this time) - I can't remember whether she knew about it from her time as a travel agent or from her time growing up in London. I might not stay here on a business trip, where I'd need breakfast and dinner in my room and all mod cons (the dinner restaurant isn't open yet) but I would definitely stay here again on a vacation.

In the past, I was a frequent traveler to London. After staying in a wide range of hotels, with an even wider range of satisfaction, I discovered Durrants Hotel on George St., directly across from the Wallace Collection and a half block walk to Marlybone High St. I returned to London about 2 weeks ago with my wife (JackieDz) for a family occasion. We stayed at the hotel for a week. Durrants was and is, exactly as expected. It has been family run for a number of generation and the pride and care they take in the property and the guests indicates it will be in business for future generations to manage. Over the last few years, Durrants had some very complex repairs and renovations that needed to be done to the building and some of its operating systems. When I was last there 5 years ago, these renovations were well underway. They are now completed and none of the charm and comfort of the hotel has been lost. Our room was a second floor room facing the back courtyard with a king sized bed. The room was neat, clean, comfortable, well air conditioned, and quiet. Quiet can be a challenge for older buildings in London, I have ample experience with this from my early travels to London. When you walk into Durrants there is a Concierge named Clive who will assist you. Clive is a full figured man with a military bearing. If you need anything or want directions or advice, Clive is your man. He is the embodiment of Durrants' dedication to service. About 15 years ago, I was in London on business. I returned to Durrants about 11:30pm lugging my backpack and a ridiculous number of client presentations. As I entered the hotel, Clive met me, took my back pack then asked if there was anything I needed. The restaurant and the bar were closed. Bleary eyed, I said "Clive, I would love a large glass of red wine. The bar is closed, but thanks for asking." He replied "Let me see what I can do, Sir." I smiled and made my way to the elevator. I went up thee floors, walked down the hall to my room, put the key in the door, opened the door, and when I looked up, there was a large glass of red wine sitting on a medium silver tray, on the dresser across from the bed. One of my favorite things about Durrants is the restaurant, especially breakfast. My wife especially likes the breakfast because the menu has so many choices for so many different people. I like scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon, toast and marmalade, and strong coffee with hot milk. She likes yogurt with granola, or Belgian waffles, or eggs over easy and toast. The food is well prepared, the coffee is hot and filter brewed, the staff is attentive, but not pushy. I have had both lunch and dinner at the restaurant and the food is excellent. As a note on it's history, Durrants is known by educated Londoners as the "writers hotel". Writers would check into the hotel to write. There have been many prominent British writers who have called Durrants "home". All hotels have off days. All hotels have problems with staff, contractors, early morning garbage collectors. But when you stay in a hotel 60 - 70 times, and Clive greets you with a warm welcome home, and the restaurant staff remember how you like your coffee, and the front desk is there to help you as best they can. Then you know you have found a jewel. For my wife and I, Durrants is our jewel. I hope you will allow it to be yours as well.

It’s been many years since our last trip, due to Covid and the fact that my husband’s business no longer takes him to London. We stayed in the refurbished Georgian rooms. Very comfortable with large bathrooms. The air conditioning was perfect and kept the room cold, just the way I like it. We were not in London during the heat wave but under normal conditions, I would say it’s just fine. The breakfast is lovely! Clive is still at his post and is always there to help, whether it’s a few cookies before bed that I need or ice for my aching joints, he is happy and willing to make his guests comfortable. The only room for improvement is the front desk. We had in an early flight and they could have been a bit kinder. We know that the rooms aren’t promised until three. When we asked her at 2:45 if they would be available soon she was indifferent referring to the stated check in time. Evidently she hadn’t been able to communicate with housekeeping. The manager sorted it in a minute so it was more a failure to be proactive and take that extra step. During our stay our rooms were always made up promptly, early in the day! Housekeeping itself was A plus The location for Durrants us just wonderful as well. Such a darling neighborhood with smart shops and an excellent bookstore. Convenient to the tube central line as well.

Lovely room, beautiful location and the luxury you would expect from a hotel in this post code. However no air conditioning and no fan, despite asking. Therefore primary purpose of the room is flawed. Don’t stay here when it’s warm. Buy fans

This is everything a hotel should be... and often isn't. From the moment we were welcomed, nothing was too much trouble. Everything delivered with a smile, wonderful breakfast, and sweet little bar to while away a last drink before bed, plus other comfy spots to hang out. I plan to come back!

Just checked in but only after having to engage an office manager. I did ask to speak to a duty manager and I’m still waiting, have never had to go to a porter to collect my key. No kettle, minimal toiletries, uncomfortable bed. No signage to tell you where your room is. Room needs decorating, stains on wall. Frankly disappointed and would check out if I didn’t have plans based round the location. Never again

Lovely! Lovely staff, lovely location... a world away from a chain hotel. A bit weird that you had to ask for a kettle (who DOESN'T want a cup of tea???), but it came quickly. We hung around on the comfortable sofas even after we'd checked out, which was really helpful. Quite expensive, but it is Marylebone... great for a treat.

the outside of the hotel looks great and downstairs the private dining rooms and little bars very nice and the food is ok. its only when you go to your room that things take a turn . we had a double roon 109 . first off no Manuel for instructions for coffe machine or no phone contacs for reception.or any information sheet what so ever . the armchair in the room waas falling to pieces. the curtains were noticeably dirty when pulled. two pillows each but were so thin. and room 109 is above one of the bars so very very loud.. now we went to reception to inquire about room service and what time breakfast was.but no one seemed to know if room service was available or no clue about breakfast in the end what with the noise we gave up and left for home at 02.00 .for the price of £300 for the night we would not think of staying there again ,

Durrants is welcoming, human scale, well cared for (save sometimes the plumbing) , delightfully located in stylish Marylebone and has fine little public rooms to add character. The breakfast menu is large and served with all ceremony; get B&B terms if you are able. Brexit seems to stolen half its staff - but the leaders who set the style are still there - and so at the moment it can offer only half its rooms. A real pleasure to be back. No reason to look elsewhere. Cost is very reasonable by London standards.
