“Privately owned, perfectly preserved and full of characters amongst the traditionally uniformed staff, the Ritz is the one London hotel where it still feels like a major treat to be there. Entering the ravishing Long Gallery, you pass the Palm Court, packed all day for Afternoon Tea, such is its popularity, and arrive at the sensational dining room, gilded, garlanded and with superb food to match. There’s also the jewelled cigar box of a bar, adjoining William Kent House for private functions in magnificent rooms, and the bedrooms: modernised of course, but still decorated, quite correctly, in the original Louis XVI style of the hotel when it was opened by César Ritz to ecstatic acclaim in 1909.”
