We stopped for afternoon tea at the Corinthia. The flowers and chandelier were amazing and the food was pretty good too! The hotel is luxurious and the service was top-notch. I ate the cheese platter, which was delicious. I did not indulge in the sweets, but they looked good. This is a nice place to relax. It is very close... More

Every night off to the Corinthia Bar for a cigar and a beverage. A great stock of cigars and an amazing assortment of libations will make you come back for more. In fact, it made me think I should stay at this hotel just for the cigars alone

Yesterday my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea in the beautiful lobby of the Corinthia. I was particularly impressed with the gluten free menu. It is very good indeed with sandwiches, scones and cakes being flavoursome and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Three of us had afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge. I have previously had afternoon tea at the Savoy, Claridges and the Dorchester and although the Corinthia was lovely it did not feel as grand and there was no pianist which was a shame. However the food was probably the nicest I have eaten. The sandwiches were lovely and there... More

The cocktails were great, some of the bar staff were very friendly and accommodating but some were a little less personable. We put it down to the football bieng on and they were very busy.
