“Worth every penny!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

We stayed at the Ritz Friday 21st June for our anniversary, from the moment we walked into the hotel, we felt that this was going to be a memorable experience, we loved the decor, pure old fashioned elegance. I had previously bought a long evening dress for dinner and wondered if I would be overdressed, but I'm so glad I took it! I even went into Selfridges to buy a new pair of evening shoes to go with it once we were there and felt the glamour of the hotel. We dined in the Ritz Club, which is free for residents staying the night, what an experience! Total sumptuous decor, excellent service and fabulous food, we opted for the oriental menu. We then went into the casino room and had a flutter, and was pleasantly surprised by the outside cigar room for smoking. Breakfast she next morning is definitely worth getting out of bed for even after a late night, excellence service excellent food and so much choice. We loved our experience and have already booked to return for my husbands birthday. It is so nice to find a hotel where you can dress up for an evening and not feel out of place.

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe room, but we have upgraded for our next stay we will see what the difference i...

My partner & I booked a Amazon special offer for dinner for 2 with champagne at the Ritz.

It was totally amazing!. The staff could not have been more helpful & charming.

The meal was divine and the ambiance was incredible.

I cannot rate this highly enough.

Thank you The Ritz for making a wish list of mine a very special event.

The Ritz is overall a lovely place to stay. However, there are some drawbacks to think of. Firstly, the staff seems to have a huge attitude and they act very snobbish. Another flaw is the outdated nature of the hotel. It's kept its classic furniture and style which is lovely, but some things should be updates. The AC also doesn't work super well. The breakfast is VERY expensive which then makes the task of finding another place to eat in the mornings... But overall, we had a lovely visit. It's a classy hotel and just about all of your needs are met.

We could not fault our time at the Ritz. We had the most amazing customer service and the room was beautiful, hotel going the extra length to make it special for us when they found out we were on honeymoon. Nothing was too much to ask, quality of evening meal and breakfast was fantastic, honestly the best hotel experience we have ever had. We would love to go again and would not hesitate to recommend the Ritz.

Fabulous lunch at the Ritz to celebrate my husbands birthday, food amazing. The only disappointment was the price of drinks, £20 for a cocktail and the cheapest bottle of wine was £49.
Service very good and restaurant immaculate.

We recently stayed at The Ritz as part of a Putting On The Ritz gift for our anniversary. Whilst we were more than impressed with the grandeur of the communal areas we were somewhat disappointed with our room. Although we had requested a higher floor we expected to be mid way and as I had expressly asked if we could have a view whether it be the Park or Piccadilly it was with some disappointment we found ourselves way up on the sixth floor with a small window overlooking the backs of buildings and with a limited view of down the Thames towards Battersea Power Station! There were some nice touches in the room and the bed turn down was very prettily done with rose petals but I truly expected more from The Ritz as regards accommodation. We enjoyed the afternoon tea but felt that the cake selection could be improved upon although the trifle was lovely! The breakfast was good and my husband especially enjoyed the kippers which were amongst the best he has eaten. All in all I believe that the hotel is trading on it’s past reputation. Oh, and did I mention that we had to enter the hotel past placard waving protesters urging the hotel’s owners to pay their taxes?
