My wife & I decided to stay on there Sunday offer of dinner bed & breakfast £475 I can honestly say it's the best offer around checked out all the top hotels as it was a combination of our birthdays & anniversary and what better place to go than the Ritz shown to room to be greeted with complimentry flowers, champagne & a small birthday cake (meant so much)
The staff are brilliant they couldn't do enough for u
As we got such a good deal we also had afternoon T room was like stepping back in time ( a good thing) cakes scones & finger sandwiches all lovely ( wish u could take away left over cakes though)
Dinner was brilliant as well attentive but not intrusive and all finished off with a couple of cocktails in the equally impressive ravoli bar
We decided to have our breakfast in our room arrived on time & hot
Would like to thank all the staff for a amazing & unforgettable stay
Many thanks room 414 x
March 16th
Will be back soon hopefully

Christmas is the best time to make a trip to the Ritz. The whole place becomes just that bit more magical, with a huge tree in the lobby and a certain aura surrounding the hotel. Hard to fault the rooms, and the location by Green Park and very close to some good calibre shopping and restaurants is perfect. Probably my favourite hotel in London - even if some of the rooms could use a little modernising!

Room Tip: The corner suites give fantastic views of Green Park.

Tea at the Ritz London was an adventre on my bucket list. It lived up to the hype with the live musicians, pink decorated powder room, and servers dressed in coats. The sweets and treats were never-ending, the tea delicious, and the staff very friendly. One day, we'll bring our daughter here because it really does feel like you're dining in a castle. She's really into princesses and would truly enjoy it.

A treat for my husband on his 'big' birthday! We stayed a night as part of a Belmond package with dinner on the Orient Express hosted by Raymond Blanc OBE of Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons - and what a treat! The lovely spacious room overlooking Piccadilly was beautifully appointed and the staff so friendly with immaculate attentive service throughout. Suitably opulent OTT décor to match the sumptuousness and by-gone era of the Orient Express carriages.

A must - Ritz 100 cocktail in the 'jewel box' Rivolli Bar - !! Splendid !!

One note of warning: Inclusive breakfast did not include 'Eggs Benedict' - read the small print or charged extra (which seems somewhat mean-minded!)

Thank you, the package you describe is without doubt a lovely one and I am not at all surprised that you enjoyed it. And yes, it is always very important to read the small print! SB

This review is somewhat late given that we have been out of the country since but on the 26th March we, my sister, mother and I celebrated my mother's birthday at The Ritz. I had read the reviews so went with some kind of balance as to what to expect. The welcome and the ambience was fabulous, we had opted for Champagne which was beautiful, chilled and set the afternoon in swing being a favourite of my mothers! The sandwiches, scones and cakes were lovely with a good choice of teas. What I was particularly struck by was the service. I had wondered if it might be a 'tourist trap' experience with waiters with a 'here we go again' attitude but none of it. They made my mother's occasion very special and when her birthday cake came out complete with candle, the piano played 'happy birthday' and every one in The Ritz sang 'happy birthday' making it a truly memorable occasion for her and for us. We will certainly be back for her 100th.
Thankyou to our lovely waiter, to all staff for making this such a lovely occasion

Cannot understand how anyone can be disappointed with Afternoon Tea at The Ritz. It is a must do. Read reviews before I went, some saying it was rushed.....you get 2 hours to eat sandwiches, pastries, scones, cake and drink tea, how much time do you need...total rubbish and some are saying its for the 'ESSEX' set.....some people can be so ignorant, even complaining that the pastries are too sweet.....oh please..... do they have nothing else to complain about. Had an absolutely fantastic time. Staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, attending to your every need. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Sandwiches are replenished frequently and all taste gorgeous. Scones came out warm with lovely jam and clotted cream but by the time we got to our Pastries, which again were very tasteful, we were quite full up, but apparently unable to take them home in a box - which I think should be allowed, or do they serve them up again to the next customer?????. Tried different Teas and again the waiters were extremely helpful in helping me choose. Refills of pots of tea again frequent. May think its a bit expensive but for what you get it is well worth it. The surroundings are very grand and prestige. The Pianist was brilliant, which made the atmosphere even more elegant than it already is.

Fantastic experience, just fantastic.
I visited the Ritz with 2 friends for afternoon tea on 9 March 14.
I can't begin to tell you how pleased we all are that we did.
To be perfectly honest, this is something that would usually be out of our price range. It was one of our groups special birthday so we all saved for a weekend away ( we also had champagne on London Eye, a theatre visit and a meal in a lovely resturant)
I was a little worried we would be looked down on as we were not dressed top to toe in designer clothes, although we had all made an effort to look nice.
I was so wrong. 3 nursery nurses who work hard for minimum wage were treated like royalty. Doors were held open and everyone was so polite and friendly.
The food was of an amazing standard and the whole place was beautiful,).
The cakes and sandwiches just kept on coming and each was as delicious as the next.
I will recommend this experience to anyone who will listen.
We will most certainly be back.
