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 the Terrace, and Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays. 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.

My husband surprised me to a birthday weekend stay with dining and dancing at the hotel. One can only say how fantastic it was from the moment we approached the doors of the hotel. The Ritz certainly lives up to its name with superb service, food and decor. Not once did it feel pretentious but inviting, cosy and oozing opulence. The 4 course eve meal held in their intimate dining room was truly delicious and for my husband who is vegan. The entertainment and music was wonderful with us having a few dances on the dance floor. Plus a surprise from the hotel for my birthday was a great gesture. Our room was beautiful, cosy and warm, with a turn down service. The bed was the best I’ve slept in with great pillows. So much so I would like to know where they get them from. Breakfast the following day was delicious, varied and filling. We were able to leave our luggage and borrow an umbrella after checkout at 12 for us to look at a few shops before our journey home. For a special weekend, treat or just a luxurious stay the Ritz is truly marvellous. I would look forward to staying again.

High Tea at the Ritz London- Crème de La Crème! This was my big “60” birthday, and I felt like a queen. Simultaneously, we were watching “The Crown” where it talked of Mohammed Al Fied saving the Ritz from ruin, and rebuilding it’s royal reputation- Well Done!

A really wonderful experience, they even upgraded us because they didn't have our booking ready in time. Perfect location right in the midst of everything. The customer service was absolutely wonderful, and the bathroom was absolutely gorgeous!

The Ritz London Afternoon Tea is the quintessential British royal tea rite. Entering the worldwide famous 1906 Grade II listed 5-star hotel in Mayfair you are blinded by the gold shades of the lavish Louis XVI style furnitures and sparkling chandeliers. “Tea at the Ritz” is held at the opulent cream-coloured Palm Court with panelled mirrors in gilt bronze frames. Dress Code requires a jacket and tie/papillon for men. Priced from £70 for adults and £48 for children I was amazed by the 18 different types of loose-leaf tea to chose from served with silverware. In addition to that we have been served baked scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserve, salmon/ham sandwiches and exquisite pistachio/chocolate pastries adorned with the Ritz “R” logo. The elegant ambiance is complemented by a musical ensemble from the resident pianist. You are gonna walk across a time capsule that so many iconic people such Anna Pavlova, the Aga Khan, Paul Getty, Winston Churchill, Dwight Eisenhower and Charles de Gaulle experienced. An absolutely wonderful gift. I gifted this to my family and I suggest doing so. Afternoon Tea is served daily at 11.30am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm, 5.30pm, and 7.30pm.

My dream has always been to stay at the Ritz. That dream came true on 18February 2023. My wonderful husband booked the night stay to celebrate my amazing dad who I lost 2 years to the day. From the moment we got out of the taxi we were made to feel special. Walking in we were met by the wonderful Jackamo who made us feel that we were the most important people there. He was polite, friendly and very professional he showed us around and his knowledge of the hotel was fantastic. Our room was sublime and every person we met were friendly and went out of their way to look after us. The Ritz oozes glamour and decadence and the attention to detail was off the charts. I know that many privileged and important people stay at the Ritz and for this weekend we were made to feel very very special, that is all thanks to the staff . The food was exceptional and the cocktails out of this world. We are already saving for our next stay. If you ever get the chance to stay or have afternoon tea or just go to the Rivoli Bar for a cocktail or 2 then grab it with both hands and enjoy.

Had a fantastic afternoon tea here to celebrate my mum and dad's 25th wedding anniversary. Cannot fault the service and attentiveness of the waiters- their attention to detail was second to none. They even spotted that my mum was little cold and gave her a blanket for her legs. Even the doorman was wonderful, taking extra care to help my dad who is disabled. The food itself was amazing and they brought separate cold drinks for my daughter who doesn't drink tea. They also had a separate selection of cakes and sandwiches for my other daughter who is vegetarian. We all had an afternoon we will remember for a long time, worth every penny.

We've been lucky enough to stay in some of the best hotels around the world and the Ritz did not disappoint. Everything inside the Ritz is immaculate and thought out. The opulent gold everywhere is beautiful and this carried through into our room (superior king room). We expected our room to be small but it was plenty big enough. The decor was in keeping with the style of the Ritz and it was extremely well kept. We were worried it might be a bit tired inside but this was not the case at all and all the upholstery was in immaculate condition. The bed was extremely comfortable, as were the slippers, and the room had good amenities with a Dyson hairdryer. We did miss the lack of kettle but it was fine for one night. There was also a cake in the room for my mothers birthday which was DELICIOUS. The bathroom was a nice marble with asprey products and the bath tub was very deep. Before dinner we visited the Rivoli bar (i booked it in advance) which is a must. It's so lovely inside, based on the Pullman train. Our cocktails were delicious and service was brilliant. Breakfast was inside the Ritz restaurant which is an experience in itself. The room is so opulent and we enjoyed the silver service. The English breakfast was lovely, and there was a vegetarian sausage option. The croissants were very nice too. Throughout the Ritz the service is brilliant and everyone is very friendly (which we did expect but we were not disappointed). The Ritz is well located and just a few minutes from Bond Street for shopping, Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park. It's very easy to walk the city from here. The only downside to the Ritz is that there are no guest facilities. Eg no gym or spa and no areas which are kept just for guests. I feel like this is a miss because guests want to feel different to people who are there for afternoon tea. All in all the Ritz met our expectations and we had a wonderful weekend. As a side note the Ritz is under a 4 year renovation however this did not disturb our weekend stay and we wouldn't have noticed.

Absolutely wonderful stay and meal. Stayed on the simply Sunday package, beyond any expectations we might have had. Lovely bottle of Champagne in the room upon arrival. We were in a Superior King Room ( No 112 ) which was wonderful apart from it overlooked Piccadilly and we were woken several times by emergency service’s sirens and loud motorbikes going past throughout the night. Maybe when booking ask for a room either not facing Piccadilly or perhaps a higher floor. The meal in the Ritz Restaurant was incredible and accompanied by a excellent bottle of wine. Will live long in the memory. Breakfast the next morning was also excellent. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
