“Tea for 32?”

published 27/01/2004

A fantastic treat

Could be thought of as pricey!

This review pertains only to that quintessential London dining experience known only as "Tea at the Ritz". So if you want to know all about the hotel - you're reading the wrong review!! Tea at the Ritz is a dining experience best experienced with someone else. Take your wife, spouse, fiancee...

“Putting On The Ritz”

Service, style and fine dining

£££!

Since the early years of the 20th century, The Ritz Hotel in London has been synonymous with luxury, elegance and fine dining. While it is a destination that most of us couldn’t afford to patronise on a regular basis, for those lucky enough to have saved the wherewithal for a ‘special occasion’...

“Living it up at the Ritz”

published 22/05/2001

Great if you can afford it

Absolutely none

LIVING IT UP AT THE RITZ Munching British Rail sandwiches on Lincoln station was hardly an inspiring start to a weekend at the Ritz, one of the world’s most prestigious hotels. My fault for not double-checking the departure times so my wife was quick to point out – but then she would...

“Ritz-London”

Location

Cost and Staff

My boyfriend had booked us a night in the Ritz as my 21st birthday present. As soon as i found out we were staying here, i was telling everyone who came into my sight. On arriving at the hotel there was a note on the front door to tell everyone to use the side door as the front door was not...

Luxurious surroundings and food, great service

Booking necessary for Palm Court

A colleague and I were in London for the day on business and, having missed lunch because of train times, decided to treat ourselves to tea at the Ritz which we walked past on the way to our presentation. Obviously we didn't have a booking - and people do book weeks in advance - so we asked at...

“Putting on The Ritz”

published 07/12/2007

Style, excellent service, great location

Too many tourists

The only problem with The Ritz is that being such a landmark it does attract a bizarre mixture of people. The Rivoli Bar is perhaps a bit kitsch for some, decorated with much gold and glitz, but The Palm Court and adjoining lounge bar are sophistication in themselves and ideal places to take...

Yes the Ritz is famous and is decorated with lots of gold plating, but it is mostly faux baroque-kitsch, the staff can be rude and arrogant (even the boys who carry your suitcase!) and the clientele is nearly all russian or arabic. For a much more classy and enjoyable stay I recommend Claridges or the Dorchester.

I was going to write something more detailed but having read iainc's excellent review of more than 6 years ago, I really feel he has said it all. Clearly The Ritz has found a winning formula that hasn't changed in years. So just a few little things to add: it really is a treat, right down to...

Stifling - we felt we were in the offices of MI5

My wife and I stayed at The Ritz Hotel London three weeks ago. We found it stifling and uncomfortable. We found it hard to relax and enjoy the experience. We really do not get it, the owners of the Ritz Hotel London themselves come from a deprived background, one would have thought this is the...
