I lost interest when it stopped being about Louisa's personal life and focused more on different events happening at the hotel.

Lovely to see this amazing production again! It is a depiction of the Edwardian Era that some people may find dated, but is very exemplary of it's time. The acting is amazing and as you see the myriad of difficulties of being a woman in this time: running a business and fulfilling an ambition, facing challenges etc., it becomes even more an amazing and interesting story.

I'm sure this series is okay, but I found it not suited for my personal taste. I found the drama a bit too dry. Others will probably like it. Rating it "OK" to be fair.

Loved it the first time ... and wanted to watch it again after Downton Abbey. DODS is still wonderful ... but shouldn't be compared to the production/acting/writing of DA -- produced at different times.

The workings of a Victorian kitchen and their society never fails to fascinate.

Love this series, have watched it twice over the years and enjoyed it just as much the second time. Excellent acting, interesting characters and plot lines.
