Air con in the room was freezing at night, but we just turned it off. Didnt have anything to eat or drink here as it was...

What an amazing experience. They really treat you like royalty. The tea is delicious and so is the food. You can get refills on whatever you like. Everything was beautiful. The icing on the cake was a pianist playing contemporary music in classical style. A little expensive, but worth every penny.

We had a wonderful lunch in the Bar, the food was absolutely delicious and the service was the very best. What an unbelievable experience, it was divine. My husband and I both agreed the attention to detail by the friendly staff was second to none. Christine and Dennis.

Stayed here recently for 1 night when at a function in London. Room was gorgeous, very comfortable and would definitely stay again and recommend. It is very very expensive and we were a little disappointed with Room Service when we ordered drinks to be delivered to our room which they then got wrong, they took ages and were very snippy...

This is the most enchanting hotel I have ever visited. First of all the staff are exceptionally friendly attentive and genuinely sincere. We met the chef who smiled and waved. Our charming French waiter was delightful. We had the set dinner in the Grill. Was gastronomic! They gave me a gift for my birthday, charged my friends phone. The lobby...

Lovely room although very dark. Bathroom rather small & dated but obviously spotlessly clean from top to bottom. Breakfast was a very simple affair which surprised me, somewhat because it is The Dorchester after all! I was very impressed with the gluten free pastries that were on offer. Fresh & delicious.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dorchester occupies the most prestigious acre and a half of real estate in the world, in the heart of Mayfair overlooking the glorious green expanse of Hyde Park. The preferred hotel of British society, The Dorchester embodies the highest service values whilst its design and character exude 1930s glamour with a contemporary edge. Prized for its spacious and beautifully designed rooms and suites, The Dorchester’s restaurants and bars - Alain Ducasse, China Tang, The Grill and The Promenade – also attract Londoners and the glitterati alike. The Dorchester Spa was recently transformed to create the most desirable and indulgent pampering destination in London with a uniquely named Spatisserie for tea and cake. ... more   less
