My wife and I recently stayed at the Dorchester on two separate occasions. The hotel is without question one of the grand old Dames of the hospitality field, comfortable, steeped in tradition, very good service, had two excellent waiters at breakfast time in the grill room and the food at Alain Ducasse was exceptional, but it is starting to look...

We popped in here on spec after seeing Cirque du Soleil nearby at the Royal Albert Hall as we had a few hours spare prior to our train, and were all hungry, and interested to see how The Dorchester's tea would differ from the Champagne Afternoon Tea we had the evening before at The Savoy. To our surprise, we were... More

My sister and I booked the Dorchester approximately 9 months in advance, just to give us something to look forward to at the end of last year. We were celebrating our 30th and 40th birthdays and, after researching and reviewing various hotels in London we settled on the Dorchester. It was the right decision! Arriving early in the morning our... More

We had afternoon tea on the balcony a little less busy than the normal tea option. We were served vintage champagne and the sandwich selection was beautiful, and the cake was superb. The staff were friendly and very efficient offering us boxes to take home whatever we didn't eat. Wonderful location for people watching I can highly recommend the Balcony... More

Exceptional service, excellent quality tea, sandwiches, cakes and scones. Spacious, tradional setting with a pionist softly playing. Gorgeous fresh flowers, beautifully decorated for Valentines. A perfect end to Valentines weekend break in London. We will return and this would make a perfect gift for friends or family.

I visited here on the 4th Feb for a work charity dinner. It was amazing. The staff who dealt with us were professional all the time. To get 500+ meals out hot and on time is an achievement in itself. The food was literally to die for! Very well done team Dorchester see you next year!!!

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
