A discreet members club in Paddington, with simple rooms and a superb restaurant championing ethically sourced, modern British fare - with optional breakfast

A gathering space for journalists and photographers, Frontline Club is a West London members-only venue where many a groundbreaking story has been penned. Featuring war relics in glass cabinets and snapshots from around the world, it's a regular host of intriguing talks, impactful film screenings and workshops. Whether you can't resist its heritage building and grown-up, yet unstifling design or, like its members, you've a penchant for international affairs, it certainly makes for a unique stay in the capital.

Guest rooms here have darkwood flooring and feature soft brown and grey hues and modern tiled bathroom. A highlight at the Club is the restaurant, where seasonal and contemporary British fare is cooked up for lunch and dinner. Much thought is put into the menu, which is all about sustainable, ethically sourced ingredients, once praised by Giles Coren.
