Over priced, average service. Pretty average all round, nothing was really wrong with the whole experience but it was up to the level that the price suggested.

A very relaxing affair taking afternoon tea at the Lobby Lounge on the Easter Weekend. The hotel is beautiful, staff are courteous and friendly without being over the top. My booking was originally for 4pm, but wandering around London when it was so cold out wasn't much fun, so we took a chance and arrived a couple of hours earlier.... More

This is truly my favourite spot for afternoon tea! I have been more times than I can count and the standard is always top notch. With changing menus throughout the year and a diverse tea selection, this place is worth a visit.

Delicious meal with perfect presentation and service. My only gripe being the two foot wide centre leg on the tables. I can't sit splay legged all evening, so had to resort to a less than comfortable side saddle approach which was less than comfortable. However, I hope to soon return and enjoy another sublime meal there

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
