                            Very very clean. Peaceful and comfortable. Friendly and pleasant. You anticipated our needs and wishes. Staff not stuffy but very human and humourous. An oasis of peace in the middle of Piccadilly bustle. We arrived tired and stressed and left relaxed.

                            The staff were incredibly helpful. Any question was quickly answered.

                            The room service tray did not include salt and pepper.

                            Good location - luxurious rooms

                            Some of the staff were not very attentive - especially the younger, foreign staff. There is no point standing by a door to open it for guests, if they are not alert to guests arriving/departing. Biggest issue was noise from traffic works during the night - we were unable to sleep at all and will file a complaint accordingly.

                            The service was outstanding.

                            To be refused entrance to the hotel bar wearing gbp 300 dark blue designer jeans was considered by us an insult. Ritz should revise their dress code to be in line with this century. After this incident we went outside the hotel for all our meals. Too bad really.

                            Dining at The Ritz was always a pleasure. The food was amazing and the staff was ready and willing to assist with anything. The decor was lovely and very romantic. We loved everything about our stay here. We will go back!

                            A few issues with the room, but they were fixed/resolved immediately. Nothing negative to say about The Ritz. It was perfect!

                            Breakfast was an extra and was quite average in choice and content. Hotel is a bit tired looking in places

                            It's a fantastic hotel. Great location, near most atractions of London. Very helpfull staff. Glamorous place. The room was comfortable, with a good view to the Big Ben and London Eye. Bathroom very clean (the only defect is that there wasn't bidé nor shaver lotion). I strongly recommend this hotel. The afternoon tea is nice too.

                            There wasn't bidé nor shaver lotion in the bathroom.

                            Well orginized and trained Hotel staff ! Location, closed to all city's most popular places. Ritz itself, among the most wanted places to see in London.

                            You can't wear jeans in the ritzs restorants and bar. But it's Ritz.

                            From start to finish, my partner and I were made to feel like royalty. We were kindly greeted, offered a tour of the hotel...even a tour of our room and the facilities it provided (although that was bordering upon condescending) and it was made very clear that we would be provided with whatever we wanted anytime of the day. The room was beautiful, immaculate, decadent and so comfortable (the best nights sleep I think I have ever had). We were brought our breakfast promptly the next morning, we checked out a little late and nothing was said and they even kept our luggage free of charge, without complaint until rather late that night so we could explore London further on our final day.

                            The hotel was amazing and understandably quite expensive. This would have been worth it with the luxurious settings, comfortable rooms and kind staff, were it not for a few things. Firstly, there were several lights not working in our room, the bulbs had blown and not been replaced. There was no iron/ironing board in the room, however, it was available upon request which was no real issue. We also requested extra blankets. The problem was, the staff completely forgot about us and we had to call down a further 2 times and wait over 3 hours to receive these goods, almost making us late for our meal as we hadn't ironed our clothes! The breakfast in the morning was delicious but we ordered a rather pricey full english breakfast, the majority of which was cold! Finally, I had made it quite clear that it was my partner's birthday and this was the reason for our stay, the staff did not seem to acknowledge this or wish him 'Happy Birthday', I had hoped for at least a kind greeting card or perhaps something special set up in the room (as I have experienced in other hotel stays with an anniversary/birthday), this is not a big issue but I found it a tad disappointing.
