The Dorchester is an amazing hotel. The rich and famous stay here for a reason. We spent our Honeymoon in London and stayed at the hotel. The Bar should not be missed. Amazing décor and outstanding surroundings. The Promenade is the heart of the hotel. Flowers, beautiful furniture and statues are everywhere. We had a deluxe room and it was... More

Top class and first rate, though disgustingly expensive. I visited through a recommendation from a family member and the experience less the expense was good. I have stayed in more relaxed hotels with similar experiences around the world for a much more reasonable price. My lasting memory are the cocktails - very good but exorbitantly expensive. Waiting staff are too... More

The Dorchester is a haven of tranquility away from the fast flowing life that is Park Lane, Mayfair and London generally. Across the road from Hyde Park and a 15 minute walk from Knightsbridge with iconic shopping such as Harrods, Harvey Nic's and so on, this Hotel is ideally located for easy acces to ALL Central London. If you like... More

What can I say- The Dorchester is a lovely hotel, the doormen remember your name, the concierge offer a level of service that rivals only the best of the best hotels, the rooms/beds are comfortable and the hot water is plentiful. My only suggestion would be to modify the bath products offered- they have a very masculine smell (husband loved... More

I stayed at The Dorchester Hotel from Sunday 25th November 2012 to Wednesday 28th November 2012. Our first impressions, as my partner and I arrived at the hotel, were that it was very clean and well presented. There were people at the entrance to greet you and take your suitcases, and we were made to feel very welcome by them... More

It's lovely to arrive and find that you have been upgraded to a nice suite with a living room and two baths. From the check in to the check out the service is impeccable, they greet you by name, they are polite to a fault, and pay attention; I used most of my body lotion and next morning they had... More

A wonderful long weekend in a hotel that fully deserves its reputation as one of the top hotels in London. The service was exceptional from beginning to end, with everything made possible and easy. Being given an upgrade was a pleasant and very welcome surprise which made the stay even more memorable. Of course it is a very expensive place... More

Exqusite hotel. The highest level of service possible. Amazing restaurants and bar reminding you of a time past. Champagne in the Promenade. Greeted immediately at the door and efficient check-in. The room was on a high floor but had no view, that would be the only minus but after staying for 3 nights I never really missed it. Huge bathroom... More
