Many say that Agostino Perrone is a legendary mixologist. More than that he is a humble gentleman who's expertise with a shaker is surpassed by his guest relations skills. One visit to the Connaught for a cocktail and your hooked. Every time I make it to London I make sure there is a small amount of time left to visit... More

Spectacular service, absolutely gorgeous building and rooms. I loved the bathroom amenities and the way the rooms were outfitted. We had a great view out the front of the hotel to the square, and it felt urban and cosy all at once. We were jet lagged and stumbled downstairs, accidentally into the Michelin-star rated restaurant. We were underdressed and looked... More

I was taken to Connaught's, whilst in London, to celebrate my birthday (following a Zuma lunch. As u would imagine from such an old British institution (19th century), all things stand out, especially, manners of staff. Was treated to an early afternoon tea, with incredible amuse-bouche, little sandwiches, exotic fruits in small assiettes, champaign and the works. I didn't pay,... More

Service was off the chart, the staff could not have been more accommodating. Gracious and anxious to be helpful. We have stayed in several fine places, but this was top of the list. Nothing more to add that hasn't been posted by other satisfied customers. Expensive? yes, but if any experience was worth it, this is it. If tripadvisor ever... More

I love this hotel. The welcome I have received on the tree occasions I have visited is truly special. The Connaught afternoon tea is wonderful - the portions are huge, the scones are amazing and it is worth ordering champagne to wash it all down. I really would find it hard to stay anywhere else. Nothing is too much trouble... More

This was a treat for one of my daughters and I was glad I chose this restaurant. From the moment we walked in, we had great service. Our waiters were attentive but not overbearing. Sandwiches and cakes were delicious and a glass of champagne made the afternoon that little bit more special. With the added bonus of watching a bride... More

We were send by claridges, wrongly assuming they were doing us a favour. The place is like a factory processing afternoon teas. We only got a two hour slot, so had to be hurried out of the room to make space for the next lot. They never brought us the last serving of cakes, the tea itself was average the... More

My friend and I got classic English afternoon tea at the Connaught. We had herbal peppermint tea, mint cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches, other sandwiches with cheese, and salmon, a variety of pastries with raspberries, chocolate, cream, etc. It was finished off with scones and a selection of jams. It was all very good, but it seemed extremely overpriced. Many... More

One of the best hotel that served afternoon tea, we were the only non English people there , which made me feel more that am in England . Afternoon tea portions is too big, generosity was one of the noticeable things in this place , although the hotel was a bit of old hotel, it was super clean .. Would... More
