We stayed in July for three days with our youngest daughter. Mix up on arrival led to an unnecessary wait, although we were given a complementary drink. Room was excellent couldn't find a fault. We ate breakfast in the bar area which although good was expensive. £34 each for my wife to have yogurt and fruit. We had breakfast in...

The sleeping rooms are very nice, service is great, location is perfect for business travelers and tourists. I had a lot of business meetings in the Promenade and it was a bit too frilly and old English - not very modern. But many people love that about the Dorchester. The hotel restaurants are great and the event space on the...

My husband and I have stayed at the Dorchester many times. I cannot seem to find fault with it. The staff is quietly competent and attentive. The high tea is quite an experience, particularly for people watching. The rooms are spacious and contain every amenity. The location is great; my husband and I walked all over London and always found...

Having stayed at other Dorchester collection hotels before and used the bar and afternoon tea facilities several times it was high time that we stayed at this icon of the London hotel scene. The perfect excuse was the RideLondon 100 which necessitated a stay in London and so the Dorchester was our chosen hotel. Arriving with a cycle did not...

We have stayed here on many occasions and they are truly the experts in discrete and consistent service regardless of the type or cost of room we have stayed in. During the school holidays they also offer an adjoining children's room included in the parents room price which is exceptional value. They treat the children like royalty and they even...

The bad smell in the corridor was very unexpected and surprising. Also, I expected to have a tea in my room, this was disappointing as well. Otherwise the hotel is fine, clean and peaceful.

This is our favourite place for afternoon tea and far better than other London venues. We always take special friends to eat there in the summer. The selection of sandwiches and pastries is superb and the staff always offer a selection of teas which is the classic English afternoon tea touch.

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
