    Overall, the experience was really pleasant. The hotel had an old English vibe to it and the tea and selection were delicious. The service was a bit slow but overall we were able to take our time and enjoyed our experience.

    Slow service despite having a reservation (20 minutes late to be seated). Not many visits from the waitress for quicker service. The window seating area is very dark after sunset, so it was difficult to see despite the lamps around the area. Food was good and filling. Tea selection was good.

    Plenty of food served for tea but lacking in quality. Cucumber and dill sandwich had crisp cucumber but bland. Smoked salmon was tasty but bread was dry. Lovely scone although a bit ungainly in size. Dessert treats were fine but nothing that I would ask for a second time.

    Afternoon tea on a Friday was wonderful. The scones are excellent and fluffy as always and the avacado toast is a nice new change from prior years and great texture contrast with the finger sandwiches. Loved the sweets selection.

    It reminded me of high tea on shows like Downton abbey but with a butler standing on the side to pour tea for you when your cup is empty.

    We had to wait 25 minutes for our table. As we were being seated I asked for two glasses of champagne. I was told that was very expensive. I get like I was being profiled. I had to ask to see the wine list. I ordered a bottle of white wine. Before we completed one glass, the waitress shows up with a pot of tea and starts poring it. We had to tell her to stop. After that there was really nothing left to enjoy. So disappointed

    The afternoon tea was wonderful. The quality selections are nicely presented and delicious. The tea list is extensive. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was attentive and our server explained all the items presented. The Drawing Room is also beautifully decorated for the holidays which just added to the period ambience.

    I have been several times and was disappointed this time. There was less food and the price is higher. Did not care for salmon sandwich. Hard to choose tea from a list. Better experience when we had our choice from the box of tea. Will not return

    Server, Victoria was excellent. Setting is always Delightful. Scones are scrumptious. I would have preferred the sandwiches as shown on the Website. I do not consider a square biscuit with creamed avocado to be a tea sandwich. May just be my Preference.

    We had a lovely experience at the Prince of Wales, Drawing Room, High Tea. The food was lovely as was the tea. We had a table by the window and enjoyed the suroudings both inside and looking out to the park on an lovely November day. The room was decorated for Christmas and looked lovely. We are making this a yearly birhtday celebration!

Your afternoon tea service provided us the opportunity to catch up on our lives and share stories and life events that have affected all of us. Thank you and your staff for a wonderful experience and and service.

    Afternoon Tea at the Drawing Room in the Prince of Wales Hotel is an elegant experience for the senses. Welcomed by lovely furnishings with fresh roses on every table, we enjoyed delicious teas, sandwiches, scones and pastries by a cozy fire as soft music played. We were well cared for by the Drawing Room staff which provided us an afternoon to savor time spent with family and loved ones. I highly recommend!

    Made reservations weeks in advance and called day ahead to request window seat. I have been here many times and the service and staff was awesome but i was disappointed on Sat.. with rsvp host whom I requested if we can be seated by window as requested but she wasn't friendly and seated us lower table inside. Didn't care to ask if we can wait when table is avail. After been seated we noticed two table were avail but she didn't care to fullfil our request so had to call ask her to change our seat,she was not happy but moved . First time I brought two adult and kid to be hosted as always talked highly about the service but disappointed.

    It was so amazing to go back in time and have high tea. I really enjoyed that the world stopped for a couple hours while we sat there sipping our tea and enjoying our food. The experience makes you feel so special. I would definitely highly recommend the cheese platter as it was so delicious.
