“Wonderful old world glory”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I experienced a wedding weekend here and it's simply wonderful, the staff were very attentive, the hotel is elegant and tasteful throughout. The food was good also. I really enjoyed sitting in the gardens overlooking Green park, one of London's most beautiful parks. Definetly a unique experience.

We went for my birthday in December for Afternoon tea, the only disappointment was the timing of the afternoon tea was 19.30 in the evening. We stayed for two nights and it was wonderful, excellant facilities, the restaurant was amazing and the service even better. Highly recommended for a romantic break. A piece of advise would be trying booking on line as the deals for the food and the room are better than phoning them.

Room Tip: Dont forget to try the internet. Afternoon tea needs booking 12 weeks in advance. Do not eat befor...

I am so pleased that you chose to spend your birthday here at The Ritz, and more importantly that you had a hugely enjoyable time. I am always particularly delighted when it is mentioned how good the service is, as I know how much effort the teams put into every guest interaction. Wise advice regarding booking for Afternoon Tea as unfortunately we have to disappoint so many people who have no idea of its popularity. I look forward to welcoming you back to The Ritz. SB

My wife's 50th Birthday present from a very good friend. Fabulous experience, thoroughly recommended. A relaxed atmosphere, with piano music playing whilst you eat. Make sure you arrive hungry as the food is aplenty!

OMG where do I start. From the moment we walked up the hotel steps we were made to feel like VIP's. The staff are truly amazing and will do ANYTHING for you. Our room was breathtakingly gorgeous. We had a champagne tea, which was lovely and we really enjoyed. . Breakfast was another lovely experience and again the food was excellent.

One reviewer mentioned the dress code, I also thought that men having to wear trousers to breakfast was a little out dated, but when you see the room where you have breakfast, it is beautiful and not really a place for jeans.

We loved it and will most certainly stay again.

A "Must Do" experience for my wife's 50th birthday. We booked the 5.30pm sitting on Valentine's Day. The dining room is elegant and spacious. Visit the website to view it. You have up to 1 3/4 hours to relax.
We were offered a choice of Tea's. Tea was served in a generous size pot with a large pot of topping up water. A selection of sandwiches, scones with cream & jam and cakes were served. Having worked up an appetite, I soon got through the little sandwiches, although I did allow the wife a birthday sandwich as well :). After a while the waiters returned with the offer of more sandwiches (and did come back a third time) and another pot of tea. Scones were very good as were the cakes. Live piano music gently playing in the background finished off a pleasant, relaxing experience. Thoroughly recommended.
