Travelers' Choice
Opened by renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz in 1906, The Ritz today still retains all the glamour and excitement synonymous with this world famous hotel. Perfectly located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the 136 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totalling 111 bedrooms and 25 suites, the elegant rooms combine the original Louis XVI style interiors with modern day technology. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful rooms in the world, The Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant features a magnificent frescoed ceiling with west facing windows overlooking Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a 'Live at The Ritz' Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturday evenings. The Ritz offers, most famously, daily Afternoon Tea service which has been popular since the hotel first opened. The stylishly updated Rivoli Bar was designed by Tessa Kennedy and features Art Deco styled interiors. Open daily with a bar menu. The Ritz London is a Grade II star listed building and in 2002 became the first hotel to receive the Royal Warrant from his Royal Highness The Prince of Wales for banqueting and catering services.

Afternoon tea with my daughters to celebrate birthdays and a new job. The staff made this a fabulous experience. They were all so friendly without being too in your face. Good food too, plentiful and delicious, was an absolute treat of a day and worth every penny. Thoroughly recommended. Special thanks to the bell Boy and also to the lovely grey haired waiter who was so friendly, sorry we didn’t get your names.

Afternoon tea to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. After many hints over the years about trying 'the best', I surprised her on the day. It was everything and more of what we had seen and read. Beautiful surroundings, faultless personnal service, delicious food and drink. The celebration cake was the perfect addition. Thank for making my wife's day.

Some friends and I celebrated 50 years of friendship with afternoon tea at The Ritz. It was fabulous, the staff were beyond helpful and were more than happy to point out good places for photos and indeed to take photos. They were friendly and enthusiastic. When we were eating the waiters were attentive without being intrusive. Food was good, we were offered extra sandwiches and cakes. They were effortlessly able to cater for the vegetarian within the party. They then offered a piece of cake at the end. Teapots were refilled regularly. The staff were more than happy to provide cute little bags to bring left overs home. The place itself was spectacular and well worth seeing. In conclusion, yes its expensive but well worth it as an experience

Visited for afternoon tea, very slick operation with plenty of refills of tea and sandwiches available immaculate service, but you do get the feeling that it is a little bit of a production line but my wife loved it! Clientele were all ages but mainly elderly and mainly female!

What a fantastic experience we had. We were spoilt by them as it was our 40th wedding anniversary. They upgraded us free of charge and they even gave us a bottle of champagne. My husband was gifted a cookery book from the hotel of some of the recipes that they cook. All the staff made us feel like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing too. This was a surprise trip from my husband for our anniversary. They made it extra special. Thank you. We will one day return.

Outstanding experience for our family partaking afternoon tea at the Ritz. Our service and servers were magnificent. You will not need to eat dinner if you have afternoon tea here. Such an elegant and pristine place to enjoy. The teas and all associated with it were absolutely amazing!

Such a wonderful experience for afternoon tea. The service could not have been more welcoming or hospitable and the food was abundant and delicious. They made us feel very special and were particularly accommodating towards our baby. I would love to return.

We came to the ritz to celebrate our wedding day , we had a wonderful tasting 5 course dinner in the semi private dining room and stayed in the most beautiful room. Everything was beyond our expectations, I have visited many times in the past as it’s only 10 mins from home hence our idea to make it our special view , for a iconic period hotel the places is spotlessly clean ! Not a spec of dust on the giant chandelier in our living room and the softest down pillows. Everything is as would be expected a more. I sooo happy the lovely lady in reception ask us if we would like to upgrade our room as it was the best decision we could have done !! We stayed in Delux suite 221 which im told is the same room they used in the Notting Hill movie. Thank you Jude Haddad and your team for a wonderful experience! Aidan P
