I went for a champagne tasting that was well done. But wandered about and met Loretta who runs the dining room. I was staying at the Connaught nearby - and the look and feel of Claridges is quite the contrast. Very "Poirot" - but the service equally welcoming and a bit less of a circus in the bars than the Connaught - which has become a bit of a hot spot for gawkers.
Claridge’s has always been one of the top hotels in London but let’s face it, over the years, it had begun to get tired. Not anymore! The hotel has been renovated top to bottom and is also expanding. Claridge’s advantages have always been extensive. It’s location in the center of Mayfair can’t be beaten and it has always oozed charm and class. The staff has always provided top notch service and it’s bar is one of the best in the world. This is why it has been a classic for almost a century. These strengths remain. The hotel, however, had been in need of renovation because the rooms, while classic and charming, has become dated. In addition, the hotel lacked a spa facility. The recent renovation fixes all of this. The rooms now are the best of any city hotel that we have been too. They are now truly beautiful in every respect. The designers have been able to achieve the impossible and have balanced modernity and tradition with perfection. The room facilities are first class with stunning modern bathrooms, amazing showers and air conditioning that can finally hold its own with global warming! The design however retains the hotels Art Deco traditions with beautiful parquet wood floors and attention to detail throughout. Claridge’s has regained its position as the finest hotel in London and indeed has to be a contender on any list of finest city hotels in the world!…
I took my wife and 8 month old to London for several days and stayed at Claridge's. Although London is full of luxurious and high-end hotels, you'd be a fool to stay anywhere but Claridge's. The staff was attentive, the food is delicious, the architecture is stunning and the drinks are to die for. Everything is clean from the top to bottom and the staff always went above and beyond. They even left us little surprises in our rooms each day. We felt like we mattered and were 'part of the family'. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough.
I went for afternoon tea at Claridge's with my partner for a belated Christmas present. Having sampled a good number of afternoon teas at various places in the past couple of years and on recommendation, I was eager to try this one. The room where we were seated was OK but felt a little dated and tired, however the service was really good, we never had to wait around for tea refills or offers for extra food. The sandwiches were delicious so we were pleased to be offered another serving. I particularly enjoyed the egg mayo and the chicken sandwiches. Even the ham and mustard sandwich which is usually my least favourite as I'm not a massive fan of mustard, was tasty! For me, the scones were the star of the show, I could have eaten another 4 or 5! The pastries were also nice but didn't compare to the scones for me. Overall, the food and service was good but maybe a little more expensive than it should be for an afternoon tea. Still a nice experience and one to tick off the list so it is worth giving it a go!…
Extraordinary!!! I don’t now where to start! I can’t stop talking about the service, the amenities, the room, everything from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out was exceptional! The room was breathtaking and super clean, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The bar, Graziano, Ilona and Lucas were over the top Amazing! Graziano remembered my drink of choice each night. It was such a magical stay, the service is unparalleled! The connoisseur as we departed checked my flight, made sure we had our coffee and bake good. They made us feel like GOLD! Claridges is one of the BEST hotels in the world! The service cannot be best! I will be back again!
Everything about our stay at Claridge's was out of this world, excellent service and food and wine. Lovely little treats in our stunning room, friendly and helpful staff, we will definitely return again soon. E and J.
The hotel is nice and the staff are great -- but there's something that was missing for us about the experience at Claridge's. Even with a very attentive staff, the hotel is a bit impersonal. The lobby is not at all inviting. We had dinner at the Foyer restaurant and the food was awful, though very pricey.
as always made to feel like royalty from the minute you arrive until you leave, nothing is to much trouble and rooms are impeccable, nice atmosphere in bars and restaurant with exelent cocktails and food
Amazing experience. The best hotel in London. Service, food, location, spa, sleep quality. Really top luxury. The team is fantastic, professional and helpful. Rooms are spacious and top quality. Heart of Mayfair.
If you’re looking for a proper English tea you can never go wrong with Claridge’s. The atmosphere is lovely, the service so attentive and the teas are delicious. The sandwiches- not my thing but the pastries were yummy! The even gave us a special cheesecake as first time customers!
