“Super lunch!!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Just returned from having lunch to celebrate my birthday with my daughter (her treat to me).
This was a most pleasurable experience:
The food and wine was excellent
The ambience and service was perfect- all staff encountered were charming and helpful.
Excellent value for money for such a quality experience.
Will definitely be back.
Many thanks Katie.

Hotel has a very good location in the center of London. One of the classic luxury hotel with excellent service. Spacious rooms in a chateau style are very comfortable. The real highlight is the tea in five hours. Rolls Royce standing in front of the hotel only hotel suppliers uniqueness of this hotel.

We enjoyed afternoon tea at The Ritz yesterday and were not disappointed. Delicious cakes and sandwiches and all beautifully served by impeccable waiters. The ambience and atmosphere add to this experience and it's something that should be on everyone's 'to do' list. Even the ladies' powder room is worth a visit ! No electric handryers in here !!

I couldn't help but hum "p-p-p-putting on The Ritz" from the moment we checked into this superb example of fine, dignified English service. It was a joyous hum that only partly kept my excitement in check at staying at this fine institution. We had concerns that staying with a baby would mean we'd be frowned upon. We were not at all. Our King Suite was spacious and impeccably clean. In-room breakfast was a dining experience unto itself. We also organised a nanny (who was a teacher & highly qualified) and dined downstairs. This was a faultless dining experience. The Ritz is more than a hotel, its an icon. It must be experienced, even for just 1 night.

A perfect place for an authentic English afternoon tea! This hotel boost its impeccable Parisian interior design dated back to the 18th century. Lavish chandelier, exquisite restrooms and walkways just set the mood right. The scones were perfect with a wide variety of fine tea to choose from and the staffs were professional and friendly. Remember to make a reservation a few months earlier!

The ritz in London has for many years been the epitome of elegance, decadence and sophistication and it didn't disappoint . We are a young couple and didn't really know what to expect but I can honestly say we were treated no different than any of the other guests. The afternoon tea itself lived up to all the hype with selection aplenty and waiters offering more sandwiches , cakes etc if needed. Couldn't fault the staff , one could of been more happier but that really is clutching at straws to find a negative where there are so many positives. All in all an excellent experience and would recommend to anyone to try at least once in their lifetime.

at ritz at moment, came back for hubby's 50th, asked for same suite as last time. Usually when you return to a hotel it's not the same as you remembered it...but wow this one is! It's still as magical as ever, beautiful and service outstanding. We have been here for last 4 days, nothing's been to much bother for the staff and as always managed to get us some of the best seats in the house for two shows, one of which was sold out! I don't know how they do it but they are fantastic.

We going home tomorrow, so sad I don't want to leave I could happily live here!

If you are going to London stay here you will have a holiday to remember for the rest of your life.

We are hoping to make this an annual break alongside the usual "hot holiday" abroad, well worth every penny. A big thank you to all the ritz staff x

Room Tip: If you are going to splash out on a suite 318 is stunning

Thank you for letting us know that we succeeded in helping you celebrate your husband's special birthday in style. I say it again and again, but the team we have at the moment is fantastically kind and obliging, and Concierge are renowned for pulling those 'sold out' tickets out of the hat. It's The Ritz. SB
