This was a wonderfull weekend at The Ritz, the rooms overlooked the park and the room service was just brilliant, the rooms as you would expect were first class and more with lovley furniture and fresh flowers..this would give anyone that special feeling

Room Tip: Overlooking the park would be good

FABULOUS, everyone should go at least once, probably one of my favourite eating experiences ever! We have had afternoon tea at the ritz four times now, the latest being July 2013. We have found the experience wonderful each time, never a slip in the service or the food. The staff are discreet but welcoming and go out of their way to ensure that you have a lovely time, we've even been the last two occasions we have taken the kids and they are made to feel equally welcome. The scones are the best scones I've ever eaten, so soft and light, nothing like any other scones we've had, and as for the cakes.....truly scrumptious. The best thing about their tea, even though it is pricey, the cakes/sandwiches/scones just keep coming, you can literally eat as many as you can manage! Fantastic. Would recommend to anyone as a special treat and an unforgettable experience. We were also lucky enough to stay a night at the Ritz for our 10th wedding anniversary, and again the entire experience exceeded our expectations, purely down to their careful attention to detail, little things including the DVD library that you could borrow and the beautiful marble bathrooms.

This is hotel with every aspect of customer service met way beyond expectation. It is a quality environment with staff who make one's experience an absolute treat. Our first stay here was a two day - 'must try the Ritz' opportunity. Having once experienced the Ritz ambience we must now return each time we go to London. Yes certainly this means a shortened trip from the far side of the world but the Ritz experience far out weighs the cost. We have just enjoyed a 6 day return. Being remembered by staff makes one feel so special. The Hall Porters can magically obtain the tickets or bookings that you discover should have been made before you left home!! A visit to the Ritz Salon was a wonderful treat. Rooms are cleaned to a high standard. We especially appreciated the turn down service in the evening with all toiletries and towels replenished, rubbish removed as well as water and slippers put out beside the bed. This stay included an evening meal in the hotel. What a treat. The food and service were out if this world in a dining room which has to be one of the most gracious and beautiful in the world. These extras and an amazingly loyal, efficient and friendly staff are what makes this hotel so unforgettably special.

I was lucky enough to be treated to tea at The Ritz by a very good friend for my 39th birthday. It was truly lovely and felt very special. The cakes and sandwiches were offered twice to us and hot water was easily supplied for the tea. An excellent varied choice of teas and all foods, as one might expect. Felt very special and was lovely to be treated! I'd recommend for a birthday or special occasion -combine with a shopping trip to Fortnum & Masons! I had a thoroughly nice time. Top tip - table towards the walls for exception people watching!

When entering the Ritz we found ourselves in a different world. A member of staff escorted us to the dining room and showed us to our table. The dining was very spacious and well lit. A waiter came over and introduced himself as Enzo, and said I am your waiter for the evening anything you would like please ask. I had the most delicious pepper soup which I have never had before, and I can highly recommend it. For main course I had duck and for sweet I had a soufle with ice cream, the soufle was perfection. We had unlimited melba toast and unsalted butter and the champagne was wonderful chilled and went down very very well. We were given a free refill of coffee. My friend dropped her napkin and Enzo rushed over and picked it up and brought her a clean one. To make it even more enjoyable no service charge was added to the bill.

We went for lunch on a deal - £45 each for a glass of champagne, and three course lunch. We had three choices for each course. We enjoyed the olive bread, and my main course was monkfish. I had a soufflé and ice cream for desert.
The atmosphere was wonderful, and the food excellent.
When our waiter discovered it was my husband's birthday, a cake was produced. We thought this was very kind of them to do this.
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole occasion, and will certainly return.

Room Tip: We did not stay just had lunch.
