This charming Fulham hotel houses eight generously sized rooms, each taking inspiration from the explorer whose name is also given to the characterful pub located below. You’ll find Union Jack cushions, world map wallpaper and bureaus that wouldn’t have looked out of place on James Cook’s HMS Endeavour. The owners do an excellent job of infusing the place with an old-school British vibe without feeling stuffy; there’s no better example of this than the good-humoured pub quiz on a Sunday evening.
