"Dinner and dancing - wonderfull"
We went for dinner and dancing on a Friday night. Great to dress up. Entertainment of 2 professional dancers was fabulous. Beef wellington to share was delicious (possibly slightly undercooked). 2 bottles of wine went quickly if you've got £400 to spare its a divine evening.
"GREAT HOTEL WITH A FEW HICCUPS"
Must say . the Ritz is the place to be for xmas and new years, we stayed for 4 nights and had a comfortable stay. Location it is perfect and great shopping a short stroll away. After a 25 hour flight we ventured into the Rivoli Bar and had a light meal with cocktails. Great staff and food, very loud so got out of there and went to bed. Breakfast is wonderful i must say but what i did not realise is that there is a serious dress code even for breakfast, to my wifes astonishment she said "Your kidding". Nope not at all, yet as we had dressed appropriately there were others in the restaurant that looked as though they had crawled out of a bus. Our second night the room next door had there radio so loud from 6am that i nearly burst a blood vessel yet my wife calmed me down, otherwise it all went well. We are glad that we visited the famed Ritz yet i wouldnt return, not because it was a bad experience; we do enjoy the finer things in life yet in a not so formal manner. (If you are looking for a 5 star experience yet in a not so formal setting then this place is not for you), if you enjoy parading your Chanel etc then it is the place. We chose not to visit the Ritz Casino as i have a problem with gaming establishments so unable to comment on that.
"A dream fulfilled!"
Having Tea at the Ritz has always been high on my bucket list and thanks to my daughter it came to fruition over Christmas.It was everything I had imagined and the moment I walked through the door was like stepping back into the 1940s where 'service' was of a very different order. The memory of the day will live forever, the tea itself and the wonderful piano playing in the background by the accomplished Ian Gomes, who shared some of his memories of Frank Sinatra with me.
We dropped in for pre lunch drinks in the Rivoli Bar. The staff were superb. The service was excellent. Every detail about our visit was first class, so much so we returned for after lunch drinks!! We were welcomed back like old friends. Next time we’re in London we will be visiting again.
I perhaps was expecting too much from the Ritz - when you hear and read up on what it's meant to be and I totally disappointed myself. I booked two rooms for 4 nights and can honestly say I wasn't that impressed with it at all. I booked the rooms a year in advance and confirmed I would be there at the check in time - when we arrived, our rooms were not ready and we were asked if we would like to upgrade at a nominal charge into rooms which were available and we decided not to. They then kindly offered us some upgrades which was lovely - they rooms were King Exec which I can't complain about at all - the rooms needed a little upkeep and my two children fought over the one chocolate that was left on the second night. Turn down service didn't happen every night and we weren't overly impressed with the meal we had at the dinner / dance evening. The decor downstairs was outstanding and the concierge could not be faulted at all - the gentleman even had my husband watch replied for us at a reasonable price. The bathroom appeared to have been used while out for the day which was reported to the front desk. A cup of tea was only available in the restaurant or at a nominal fee for room service. The Christmas Tree and decor was everything I imagined but unfortunately the service wasn't all there from all aspects and one would expect this for the pricing one pays.
