3. The Service
Claridges Hotel boosts proudly its award winning service. Every guest is treated the same – as perfectly as possible. Every review I have seen always talks of the wonderful service they got.
4. The Choice
The choice of amenities and facilities is very complete from 202 air-conditioned rooms, child care and beauty services, through to laundry service, health club, massage services and wedding services. The list is too long to put here.
This luxury hotel also boasts a total of 5 dining areas of various types – Gordon Ramsay At Claridges, The Reading Room, The Foyer, The Fumoir and Claridges Bar. From everything to the world famous Afternoon Teas to a full A La Carte menu, everything is covered.
5. The Price
So how much who you expect a 3 course set lunch to cost in the heart of London? My gut reaction would probably set it at £ 100 (c $ 165) and more. You tend to expect to may for style over substance usually. But no! How surprised I was when I looked this up.
If you take lunch at Claridges, more specifically lunch at Gordon Ramsay at Claridges, you will be surprised. At the time of writing this, a 3 course set lunch at this 5 star luxury hotel, in the up market Mayfair area, in a restaurant run by a Michelin starred famous TV chef is only £ 30 (c $ 45).
I almost fall off my chair. This is absolutely amazing value when you consider the circumstances. The reports and reviews I have seen also speak very favorably of the food as well.
I could go on for a long time about the fantastic time you will have at Claridges, but I had to limit it today to just 5 for you.
