The Ritz

Opened in 1906 by renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz, The Ritz is a classic London icon and one of the world's most famous hotels. Inspired by Paris's Rue de Rivoli, Cesar Ritz was the first to bring French palatial style to turn-of-the-century London. Rooms have been perfectly maintained to reflect their original neo-classic Louis XVI design but modern touches such as sleek marble bathrooms and flat-screen televisions keep the hotel very much in the present. The Ritz is also London's only hotel that borders Green Park meaning that a stroll to Buckingham Palace takes a matter of minutes. Children are always welcome and treated like royalty expect presents on arrival and thoughtful touches from free ice-cream to their own VIP scheme. Recently refurbished, the art-deco Rivoli Bar is an institution and the perfect place for a coupe-de-champagne at any time of day. Meanwhile The Ritz Restaurant is an opulent frescoed and gold extravaganza which, alongside serving three meals a day, hosts 'Live at the Ritz', an evening of dinner and dancing. Afternoon Tea is, of course, a must served in the Belle-Epoque style Palm Court and with over 17 teas to choose from this really is one of London's most impressive tea experiences.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
