The Ritz......even the name has a certain something.....and so, of course, does the hotel!
My husband and I had dinner in the gorgeous gilded dining room recently and it was as good as ever. The food was consistently delicious and the service was second-to-none.....as it always is!
It brought back memories for us of many happy times staying at The Ritz in London. We have had some lovely suites with fantastic views over Green Park and I do recall the exquisite marble fireplaces in every room in the suite and that they had drawing rooms big enough for entertaining dozens of friends for cocktails.
It's nice to know that some things in this world never change, regardless of the onslaught from certain sections of society who might best be characterised as "uncouth".......The Ritz sails on, a perfect, peaceful, magnificent and safe haven from all the unpleasant individuals and circumstances of the world......and we hope that it will continue to delight its guests for many decades or centuries to come!
The afternoon tea is, of course, simply perfect, and so is the setting among the little gilded wooden chairs, the sofas and the potted palms.....everyone who comes to London should make a point of going to The Ritz for afternoon tea, even if not for dinner!
