There are some hotels that just get 'it' right, and Dukes is one. Of course that is only if you want what we want which is: A quiet but convenient location, friendly but efficient staff, no fuss, immaculate, comfortable and spacious rooms, luxurious bathrooms with good quality toiletries, an atmosphere of opulence without bling, service of the first order, night or day, and overall, that indefinable sense of 'Englishness'. Well, maybe Dukes nearly gets that last category right, although a little New York is obvious in one or two aspects of the staff training, but maybe that's not a bad thing. Our only criticism was the food. The restaurant at the time of our visit was serving 4 star food at 5 star prices. Nevertheless, we will certainly return, if only to return the umbrella given free to us with no fuss when we had a short stroll in the rain on leaving. Those are the touches that count IMO.
