Staff was polite, respectful and welcoming. Very helpful with description of everything included on our afternoon tea trays. Only downside was the cucumber sandwiches and salmon sandwiches were on the dry side.

One of the most charming places my daughter and I have been for afternoon tea. The ambiance was wonderful. Staff were so helpful and just could not do any more to please us. Loved the sandwiches. Maybe the "sweet" pastries/cakes could be more exciting and exotic, but no complaint at all. The cheeses served with the sparkling wine and mimosa were perfect - a great selection. Would go back in a mino second. A very super ending to a great couple of days.

Took my mum to the drawing room high tea for her 85 th birthday. We enjoyed it very much. The food and service was impressive. Plenty to eat and the tea was hot and perfect. Many flavours to choose from. The scones were soft and warm. Will definitely visit again.

We had tea (instead of breakfast) and it was excellent! Our server Victoria is perfectly suited to serve tea. We were surprised at the amount of food/choices provided. The number of tea selections is a bit overwhelming but Victoria suggested some of the more popular types so that helped.

We have attended the Prince of Wales Drawing Room for afternoon tea previously and what keeps us coming back are the people. The food is abundant and well priced. The atmosphere superb. My wife attended many afternoon teas with her mother having been born in England. She is most impressed by the afternoon tea as presented by the Prince of Wales.

The occasion was for my birthday. The person who greeted us wished me happy birthday and seated us at a window table which was lovely. Our server came promptly and took our order. When she brought the tray out with our food she went over everything and gave some recommendations on which to eat first. It was a delightful experience and I plan to repeat it soon.

This was our first time attending and it did not disappoint. Everything was spectacular. From the first greeting and taking in all the beautiful Christmas decor. The tea we chose was fabulous and the display and taste of the trays were amazing.
We will do this again ❤️

My daughter really enjoyed her 20th birthday
Never to old to feel like a princess and the afternoon tea did just that.
Thank you so much for being part of her special day.

We enjoyed the vegetarian traditional tea and it was excellent. I have also enjoyed the 'regular' choices but this was far superior and much preferred! Excellent. Jodi was very attentive. It was just absolutely lovely. Thank you

A high tea experience that makes time stop and invites you to seize the moment. The place is like the living room of a dear friend, warm, cozy and welcoming. Rich variety of special teas to pick from that will be served in a delicate vintage tea set. The food comes in a beautiful presentation: a tower of finger sandwiches, pastries and fruits. Everything so colourful, fresh, full of flavours and aromas. This is a most go!

The Traditional Afternoon Tea met all our expectations. The server was pleasant and responded to all of our queries. There was a good variety of sandwiches and sweets and we weren't the only table to ask for a take-home box because of the quantity.

The only minus with the food is that the fruits on the pastry and on the cheese tray is not as fresh. The blueberries are quite soft and the grapes are not as fresh

We had the Royal Afteroon Tea. Everything from tea choice to food and service was superb. Samantha was our server, although run off her feet, was most attentive. Be prepared to wait a little before the delicious food arrives. It's worth the wait!
