This was our tenth time that we’ve spent a glorious weekend at Claridges and this time was no exception. The hospitality you receive is just amazing as every member of staff will do everything they can to make you feel so welcome. This wonderful experience begins as soon as you arrive as the doorman including our good friend John are right there waiting for you with a lovely greeting and to take care of your luggage which is then sent to your room. You then head to reception to check in and the friendliness of the staff continues as they make sure you have just what you need for an enjoyable stay. Our room was ready so was therefore escorted to the sixth floor and low and behold a minute later came our luggage. We booked a Superior King Room which we have booked before as we find that there is plenty of space and this room seemed to have even more space. The room had wardrobes along one wall with glass front doors. The bed itself a lovely size and there was also a dressing table , two comfortable chairs and a table. There was also a mini bar with some amazing treats. Separate to the room is a huge bathroom which are normally quite long but this one was a bit more square giving you plenty of space. The bathroom featured two hand basins , toilet , bidet and a huge bath with a large shower head above.
Once settled it was time for our first visit to Claridges Bar where you are always so well looked after by a great team led by manager Denis and head barman Jorge. There always a nice atmosphere in the bar while you relax and enjoy one of the many fantastic cocktails or amazing choice of wines as well a couple of local craft beers. On this occasion we decided to have a light lunch while enjoying a Gin & Tonic. We had the Classic Club Sandwich & the Chefs Dozen sharing plate. Our other visits were mainly for a pre or post dinner aperitif. Classic Club Sandwich
Chefs Dozen Sharing Plate
Genus Apis Cocktail
Foyer and Reading Room
The Foyer is such a fabulous location for any occasion with its grandeur and the reading room is a quieter area but still a delightful place to enjoy a nice breakfast. We certainly did enjoy some amazing food for breakfast as well as a glorious Xmas Afternoon Tea. The friendliness of the staff does not disappoint here either with exceptional service catering for your every need. The breakfast menu caters for virtually every nation and dietary requirements. We enjoyed a Full English , the Omelette Arnold Bennett , Eggs Benedict and a fabulous Bacon , tomato & cream cheese bagel plus the amazing selection of pastries.
So yes I honestly say that once again we enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Claridges. You certainly feel well and truly spoilt here which is why it’ll come as no surprise to you when I tell that I can’t wait to return again next year. The friendliness and professionalism is noticeable from all members of staff which is just another added reason for returning. Claridges certainly is the perfect place for a special weekend or an overnight stay and therefore I would highly recommend a visit
I’d finally like to say a big Thank You to all members of staff and see you again in 2019
