Just returned from a visit to this hotel having booked afternoon tea ( via Travelzoo at a discount) but that's what the hotel was offering after all and you would hope to get an afternoon tea of similar quality as one at full price! After all it's one way of introducing you to the hotel. What a disaster - we... More

Sorry to say was very disappointed with the afternoon tea, sandwiches on cheap bread and cut badly, no nice cakes like on website only small choc cake or brownie, scones nice, had to ask for cream! No service as to speak off so for the price very poor.
