My partner and I had booked a Sunday night stay that was part of an offer including dinner, bed and breakfast. We arrived feeling weary and worn, having travelled from New Zealand, and from the moment we arrived knew we had made the right choice of place to stay.
The check in process was dealt with efficiently and with charm, attention and courtesy. We were introduced to Sebastian, our butler, who escorted us to our room (Sebastian deserves a special mention-what a wonderful chap he is!). We probably looked like a couple of scruffy oiks after our journey, and were treated with nothing but warmth and welcome.
The room was wonderful, so comfortable and well appointed, the bed was the most sumptious I have ever slept on. We had a snooze, refreshed our spirits with long, hot showers and made our way to the dining room. Dinner was a delight-each of the 4 courses delivering beautiful flavours and satisfaction and we marvelled at the skill of the waiting staff-it was like watching a ballet.
After a blissful, restorative night we enjoyed similarly scrumptious breakfast and made our way into the rest of our holiday.
We both enjoyed our stay so much, and Darling (for whom this was the first UK visit) commented that people complaining that Londoners are unfriendly clearly haven't stayed at the Ritz!
We actually travelled in 2009-and the happy memories of our stay are still as strong as ever, s felt a review was in order :-)

- Opened by renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz in 1906, The Ritz today still retains all the glamour and excitement synonymous with this world famous hotel. Perfectly located in a landmark position on Piccadilly in the heart of London's West End, the 136 room luxury hotel is ideally placed to suit both business and leisure visitors alike. Now totaling 111 bedrooms and 25 suites, the elegant rooms combine the original Louis XVI style interiors with modern day technology. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful rooms in the world, The Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant features a magnificent frescoed ceiling with west facing windows overlooking the Terrace, the Italian Garden and Green Park beyond. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with a Dinner Dance on Friday and Saturdays. The Palm Court restaurant offers, most famously, daily Afternoon Tea service which has been popular since the hotel first opened. The stylishly updated Rivoli Bar was designed by Tessa Kennedy and features Art Deco styled interiors. Open daily with a bar menu. Private dining facilities at William Kent House, the 18th century mansion house at The Ritz, include an exquisite selection of banquet rooms and suites. Possibly the most elegant and opulent private rooms in London, William Kent House offers the perfect venue for private receptions, weddings, boardroom meetings, lunches, dinners and gala events.
