Just had the most wonderful afternoon at the Lobby Lounge in the Corinthia Hotel. I had done a lot of research into the perfect location for a 50th celebration tea - 7 of us all reaching the milestone within 3 months of each other - and the Corinthia did not disappoint. We were so well looked after with attentive but... More

I took my Brother and Sister-in-Law for tea this week. The setting is grand, just what you would expect from a hotel of this quality, with a high ceiling and show-stopping chandelier and floral displays. When we visited it was very busy however the atmosphere was calm, serene and intimate - and there was little noise despite the numbers. The... More

One of the best afternoon tea experiences. The food (savoury and sweet) and the service were excellent. They also have a very good selection of teas. They ensured that our finger sandwiches did not have chives or onions. The cost is £45 for traditional afternoon tea or £55 with champagne. Will definitely go back.

Visited for lunch with my wife without a reservation. We were seated immediately even though it was busy. I chose a set menu while my wife went for a la carte. Both were very impressed. Thoroughly enjoyed and worth every penny.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the Lobby Lounge at the Corinthia. We were guests for 8 days and had many opportunities to spend time in the lounge. The food was good (not exceptional in my view) but what made it special is the beauty that envelops you. The casual comfort. The gorgeous flowers and chandeliers and, in particular, the... More

We recently took our 12 year old daughter to London and I took her to afternoon tea at The Corinthian. This was my second time, but a special occasion to share with my daughter.

We have made sure that we find time to visit the Lobby Lounge during our stay in London again. Everything's just perfect. I wish we had places like that in Zurich. It's elegant and upscale but you don't need to wear expensive accessories all over you to feel comfortable.

The lobby lounge had the most spectacular floral arrangements I have ever seen at a hotel. The bar was really nice and bright and overlooked the Thames but very expensive. The staff were very attentive and friendly. They have any kind of drink you want but take lots of money!
