The Dorchester Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have stayed here before but mainly I'm a longstanding and regular user of the hotel's various dining and drinks venues. The Promenade was always great for pre and post dinner drinks but more recently it has disappointed, with awkward rules for non residents and no matter how busy or quiet, it always seems problematic to get a table without some fuss and ultimately then being seated. Also, the nibbles served used to be excellent with superb almond stuffed olives and other lovely accompaniments, fitting with a genuine five start property, however this has all been downgraded and now one receives a bowl of crisps and cheap nuts - small thing but as regulars one notices and cost cutting seems unnecessary/irritating at this level. Service can be great and other times lacks personality and consistency. Overall good but not like it used to be.

Amazing Hotel Every thing is wonderful, the staff, the service the rooms. The bathrroms are incredible, deep baths and lovely marble. Breakfast is a treat, delicious and beattifully served. Worth every Penny!

This is the hotel never ever seen, no question at all just great.while walkin through the lobby door you feel like home great staff at the front desk always helpful for everythings. To the room was nice decor nice balcony good view the spa was great.

We love The Dorchester. We know we will sleep like logs, be treated to the most excellent service and eat and drink the finest food and wine. Coming to London and staying at the Dorchester is the icing on our cake. We know what to expect and are very happy to pay for it. We have never been let down.

We are a group of European Languages Teachers with the love for afternoon Tea and almost every week end we visit a different location to experience their Afternoon Tea. Yesterday we had the pleasure to visit the Dorchester. We must say that it was an amazing and unforgettable experience, first of all for the food and cakes quality, but in particular for the dedicated service we experienced. Francesco, our waiter was one of the most professional and spectacular entertainer, while he was of course assisting other customers he made sure that we had full attention and we had what we needed at all the time with a big smile on his face! Every single member of staff came to ask if everything was OK. I would recommend to anybody to have the same experience...We must say that Afternoon tea at the Dorchester is London's N. 1! Although we are sure we will go back soon, i want express my gratitude to Francesco and to the rest of the team for their dedication to service and for making our experience unforgettable.

Mighty expensive but you can justify it with the location across from the park and the staff they have on site. They didn't get everything right (the room service in particular) but the gentlemen at the front desk always made up for it and were classy about everything. The spa was as good as any I've been to. Beautiful rooms and views. -Mason Plumlee

I went for an annual corporate lunch today with over 300 guests The service was fantastic & the food exquisite Amazing how the top chefs can cater for such large numbers with the amazing quality you would expect of a small restaurant I'm looking forward to next year

With it's regal allure and ideal location, The Dorchester certainly lives up to its iconic reputation the moment you arrive. Situated on Park Lane, minutes from Buckingham Palace and Kensington Gardens, and just across the street from Hyde Park, the Dorchester (for me) is a breathing space from standard luxury accommodations. My Studio Suite was elegant and insanely spacious. The marbled bathroom and lavish accouterments were the perfect amount of pizzazz without delving into the GRANDMA territory! Part of the charm in this glorious five star luxury hotel is the fact that the ambiance retains that RICH and FAMOUS branding it became known for when it opened in the 1930's. If those hallways could talk...well, I know that the floors can because as you're walking along some of them, underneath the carpeting you can hear the sound of creaking boards with every step. High Tea at The Promenade is an absolute must on every level. It's sort of like the calm before the storm if you're evening includes cocktails at China Tang. I recommend both experiences at the Dorchester. Afternoon tea at The Promenade for its scrumptious pastries and fingerling sandwiches, and China Tang for its view of intriguing high society minions and moguls as they "air it up" among each other. Jump into the mix, it's fun. You can always shower it off when you return to your beautiful room. The Staff at the Dorchester are second to none, from the top of the ranking tier to the bottom. There is a sense of great pride felt from everyone and it's of no surprise since The Dorchester is one of the worlds most prestigious and expensive hotels. Don't expect to use your coupon book in this deliriously divine establishment.

This is THE most beautiful hotel. The staff treat you like you are their only guests and they will do anything to make your stay more enjoyable. Andrea on the front desk greated us when we arrived and we had been given an upgrade owing to our special occasion. She booked us in and took us to our room and explained everything to us. I had been given a bouquet of flowers by my husband and I asked for a vase to keep the flowers fresh until we came home. The florist took the flowers, arranged them in a vase and then the next day re-wrapped them so I could bring them home. We had a card in the room from the hotel and a cake which was just so lovely. The room was amazing. The bed so comfortable with pillows that your head just sinks into. Bathroom had a massive bath and separate shower so there was a choice. Andrea also arranged for the spa to call so I could book a treatment! Small things that made a big difference to our stay. The spa was fantastic. The massage by Leanne was lovely, relaxing just perfect (and I have had a lot of massages before). I got a present from the spa staff as well for our anniversary. When we checked out the staff again were so helpful. We left our bags so we could have a wander around. Treated like royalty doesn't even come close to how everyone looked after us!! I cannot recommend this hotel more highly. I wish there were more words... But I hope you get the drift.

We stayed here for a celebratory long weekend and from the minute we arrived the service was faultless. It was so good to stay somewhere where traditional hotel courtesy is observed . This hotel is just so special and we would return in an instant.
