A London home from home for legions of well-heeled country folk, The Sloane Club is as cosmopolitan as cucumber sandwiches and as hip as tea on the vicarage lawn, but also as calm, elegant, well-run and reassuringly welcoming as you could wish to find. A private members’ club in a fabulous location, it’s open for overnight stays in its comfortable bedrooms and new, very smart bathrooms, plus spoiling treatments in The Sloane Club Spa. Downstairs, you’ll find inviting sitting rooms and a splendid restaurant, both clubby and contemporary, which sparkles under its glass roof. Tuck in to the best of British food with your fellow diners: squires from the shires, perhaps a covey of vicars and boho daughters dining with their dads. In the morning, enjoy a generous breakfast in the garden room and inspect the dozens of affectionate caricatures of toffs at rest and play – with their dogs and guns, their G&Ts, their gardeners and their village fêtes. You are one of them now. Doubles from £150.
