  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

We stayed at the newly revamped hotel for two weeks and loved our stay. After an initial problem with our room, we were instantly upgraded to a large room with a breathtaking view of Lion's Head and the sea. The staff at The Ritz are simply wonderful! They are all friendly and helpful, always greeting us with a smile. The breakfast buffet was good, with eggs made to order and a good selection of other items. The hotel is one block from the Promenade where we enjoyed walking. There is a large choice of restaurants within walking distance and the area is safe. We did not take advantage of the revolving restaurant, but the views from up there were stunning! We would definitely stay at The Ritz again!

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Went to dinner, returned to room and realized I need to buy water because there was none stocked in my room. Made the misteak of leaving my purse under the TV for 15 minutes while I went downstairs. During that time someone entered my room to drop off a “complimentary” dessert tray. Cute right? Wrong! Discovered several hundred US dollars went missing! Immediately reported it to manager on duty, he could have cared less and told me he couldn’t go around accusing people and that he would alert the morning manager. Upon check out the next morning nobody knew of the situation and there was no follow up even a month after! Why are they entering rooms late at night and doing nothing about stolen money? This place is weird and shady. Lesson learned don’t drop your guard for even a second. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THE RITZ...

Newly renovated Ritz misses the mark

No hairdryer, no robes, no slippers, hard pillows with no pillow choices, extractor not functioning in the bathroom, small bottled water only for 1 provided and 45 minutes to get room service to rectify after phoning multiple times made our stay very disappointing for a hotel that has been newly renovated, but has missed the mark. Fine details to the renovation like leaving the old brown covering inside the lift doors, badly covered passage walls / finishes and unfinished areas on the restaurant level makes one feel that the decoration upgrade was done as cheaply as possible. The staff in the restaurant were friendly and did ask how was our stay, but more needs to be done to tell guests that you can order a cooked breakfast, as the food variety on display was minimal. Pity, because the past reviews online has been shocking, but we though that things would have dramatically changed due to a "complete renovation". A lot more work and attention to detail needed. Nice pool area though.

Excellent Staff

Sadick is an outstanding concierge. he was very attentive to all our needs and went above and beyond to make sure all needs were met. He greeted us every morning with a warm and inviting greeting. The Restaurant and Bar staff was awesome, the Manager was informed that I was lactose intolerant, he immediately walked to the local store and bought soy milk that would last my entire stay. The staff at the revolving restaurant were excellent, specially our waitress. South Africa was on our bucket list, however, our experience, because of the staff, has turned it into a place we will visit again.

Money stolen from my room

Safety box was not functional upon my arrival. My mistake, I left my money inside my luggage. Unfortunately housekeeping stole money out of my bags. The next day I informed Reception and asked them NOT to let anyone into my room. However when I came back at night the room was cleaned and housekeeping has been there again despite my earlier note. Stay there at your own risk.

Pros: Breakfast

Location: good location
