This is an excellent hotel that fully deserves its 5* category. The best thing was the buffet breakfast - there was the largest selection of foods and cuisines that I have ever seen in my entire life at any hotel, and it was all beautifully presented . Japanese, Chinese, European, it was all there.
The room decor was not to my taste as the cream net curtain tainted the whole room with a kind of depressing brown light, but the bed truly was heavenly - I slept like a baby. TV, fridge, coffee maker, desk, iron and ironing board (thank you), hairdryer, and lovely toiletries were all present. My only real complaint was that there was no wall attachment for the shower, which meant that it was impossible to shower normally. I gave up and had baths instead.
The gym was full of new equipment and extremely well equipped and clean. I enjoyed using it.
Another thing perhaps worth noting, I had to use the business center to print an e-mail and was charged £1.20 per sheet of paper. I know its a 5* but please....
Finally I followed a another reviewer's recommendation and found the Sunshine Kitchen restaurant just 5 mins away from the hotel, past the TGI's on a side road on the left, directly opposite the Ritz.. Go there! Easy picture menu, clean and smart restaurant, delicious and cheap Chinese food.
