    My house is five years old.
    The ground floor thermostat is on the wall in the wide hallway. Behind the hallway is a large kitchen which has NO thermostat in it.
    The door to the front room is usually closed and in this room is a radiator with NO thermostat on it, so it can't be turned down... but in the morning the radiator gets quite hot.
    If I left the front room door open, to allow the heat from the radiator to reach the thermostat in the hallway and down to the kitchen would this stop the thermostat in the hallway crying out for heat and thus stop the radiator in the front room from emitting so much heat?

    Yes, that's how I fine-tune mine, even though I have TRVs. Works OK. You could also consider throttling the front room rad.
