I can't complain, it's a 3 star hotel, that's what you pay for and that's what you get. We stayed on the 17th floor and the view was spectacular. The room was average sized, neat and clean. The hotel is quite central, we stayed over for the gunrun, so found the location absolutely perfect. That being said, the breakfast buffet... More

Arrived at the hotel and checked in very easy, when got up to the room found the cleaner was still in there. Room wasn't that clean and looked very tired. Free limited Wifi worked in reception but everywhere else you had to pay for it. Breakfast buffet style nothing remarkable but did the job.

We stayed at the Ritz for 2 nights and it was very disappointing. On arrival nobody was at the entrance to open the boom gate for us and we had to find parking down the street and walk all the way back to the hotel. The room was cramped and unconformable. Very hot when the sun shined on the windows... More

We were quiet excited when our travel agent said she had booked us into the Ritz. Our excitement soon turned to disappointment when we got to our room. Unfortunately, we had an end room, and it was very small and cramped. We even had to sit sideways on the toilet! The whole hotel, apart from the reception area looked like... More

Nice location with great sea-side view. At 4 Kms walking distance from Victoria wharf which is a great hang out place. Decent restaurant options close by if you wish to explore outside. Hop-on-hop-off bus stop is just 200 meters away. Breakfast spread was average. Hotel travel desk was not very reliable. Try and book for sight-seeing in advance.

We told our taxi cab driver that we wanted a decent hotel with fair pricing. He said the Ritz and I was a little worried about the pricing, but I should have been more worried about the basic services of the hotel. It was June 2013 and cold and rainy. They failed to turn on the heat and we were... More
