Three episodes of sheer luxury for the price of a bottle of scotch! Great value for an indulgent peek behind the curtain of one of the great 5-star theatrical shows on permanent display in the centre of London.

It is likely that anyone such as me who watched both one after the other would or may have come to the conclusion this Hotel starting from the top The General manager Mr. Kocks hasa very warm and friendly outlook. That Hotel is on good hands whilst he is there. The long longevity of the staff is more important as it gives the guests continuity and a friendly homely place to stay. To be honest I watched both the SAVOY and CLARIDGES several times. If the Manager shows excellent leadership then it will follow onto the other staff. This Hotel has just over 200 rooms so it has many rooms. The décor was lovely These Hotels are very grand but it is a class above we mere mortals. It is a glimpse of luxury we will never be able to afford but for the people who do are fortunate. The Irish Butler was very nice as were many of the staff. Mr. Kocks being German should not be a problem as the Angles and the Saxons were German as is the present Royal family commencing with all the King Georges to Queen Victoria forward to the Windsors today. Good to watch.

I thoroughly enjoyed this insight into the workings of a great hotel, a "grand old lady", so to speak. Whilst the sheer extravagance and self indulgence of such an institution appalled me on one level, it was interesting to see the high level of professionalism and loyalty in the staff. I suppose pandering to the foibles of the rich and famous is nothing new, it is just a pity that more of us can't experience that wonderful luxury and service. Politics and personal prejudices aside, it is an opulent production worthy of viewing.

Brilliant and fascinating previously televised program on the workings of Claridges Hotel in London. A great eye-opener for those not wealthy enough to cross the threshold. An eye-opener for anyone in the Hospitality industry. At the same time I also purchased another DVD - on the extensive renovation of the Savoy Hotel. Excellent.
