The Dorchester occupies the most prestigious acre and a half of real estate in the world, in the heart of Mayfair overlooking the glorious green expanse of Hyde Park. The preferred hotel of British society, The Dorchester embodies the highest service values whilst its design and character exude 1930s glamour with a contemporary edge. Prized for its spacious and beautifully designed rooms and suites, The Dorchester’s restaurants and bars - Alain Ducasse, China Tang, The Grill and The Promenade – also attract Londoners and the glitterati alike. The Dorchester Spa was recently transformed to create the most desirable and indulgent pampering destination in London with a uniquely named Spatisserie for tea and cake.

Outstanding from start to finish from the decor & service, to the food and drink. We were all warmly greeted at the door and taken to our table at the time allocated to us. Our waiter was Purna who made the occasion extra special. He was very professional, attentive and nothing was too much trouble for him. As my father and daughter had a few dietary requirements, I had telephoned the Dorchester a week beforehand to speak to a member of staff to discuss the matter. All of their needs were catered for, without any fuss whatsoever. The food presented to us was a work of art from the sandwiches to the scones and cakes. Also towards the end I was presented with a small beautifully decorated birthday cake and the pianist (who was also excellent and played everything beautifully from memory) played 'Happy Birthday'. It was indeed the best two and half hours my family and I have spent at any hotel/restaurant having afternoon tea. FABULOUS. Thank you Dorchester. You have made my birthday & family trip to London a very memorable one.

Amazing champagne afternoon tea, complimented by a bottle of Verve Clique we purchased. Excellent food, great attentive service from Anwar and Ludwig (couldn't do enough for us) and relaxing time without any rush. Treated like royalty in the splendid Promenade. A must for lovers of this type of experience, we would definitely do it again!

I had previously had dinner and afternoon tea at the Dorchester, and due to travel restrictions abroad, cegidec to stay there over the Bank Holiday weekend. From the moment I arrived, until the moment I left, I was made to fell very welcome and special. The reception team of Angelo and Alberto were very friendly, professional and helpful, and arranged for me to take photos around the hotel as it is a hobby of mine. I stayed in a King Superior room which had been refurbished, It was very well appointed, spacious clean and comfortable with a decent sized bathroom. The soundproofing in the hotel is excellent, and Sir Alfred Hitchcock once remarked that the Dorchester is the perfect place to commit a murder due to the soundproofing. However, the windows could be better glazed, as there is noise from the street. I had breakfast in the Promenade during my stay, which was pure theatre and the quality of food and drinks and the service was exceptional. Auran was my waiter on both mornings, and he thoughtfully boxed some of my favourite pastries for the rail journey home. I also had dinner in the Grill, and again the service, food and drinks were excellent, and I was looked after by Celine. If you want a touch of luxury in a traditional hotel that still maintains the standards and glamour of a bygone age, then I thoroughly recommend the Dorchester.

Had to write a little about our trip to the Dorchester. We stayed in the Stanhope suite. From when we pulled up in our car. We was greeted by friendly staff, who took our bags and the car was whisked away. We was greeted by Antonio who said our room wasn’t quite ready. So had a light lunch. Then was shown personally by Antonio to our suite. And wow, it was beautiful. Everything you could want from a room. Had a great day out and about. The returned and went down to the Dorchester Grill. Fantastic food. Met Tom who was lovely. The only problem was, I was ill with a migraine, and couldn’t have the breakfast which Dean told me was amazing when he came back to the room. As we booked a staycation, we had late checkout. And the staff again was so caring and couldn’t do enough to get me in the car to get home. But apart from that we will be returning in the very near future.

This is without a doubt one of the best hotels in the UK Every aspect of our stay was perfect in every way. We would like to thank the amazing staff at front of house, the restaurants and bars. Every member of staff played a part in making our stay perfect. Myself and my partner would specifically like to thank Fabiana Marzucco, front office manager, for her professional care and attention to our stay which was amazing in every detail. Fabiano is a true asset to the Dorchester. We will definitely be staying at the Dorchester again and very highly recommend this hotel. Thank You Steve & Julie August 2021
