My daughter and I decided to have afternoon tea at the Peninsula Hotel and the really enjoyed the outing.Whilst waiting in a 45 minute queue this gave us the opportunity to watch the coming and goings through the main lobby doors and enjoy the spectacle.The lobby "tea room" is like stepping back in time as you sit gazing at the...

Ive been wanting to try this place for ages... in my opinion it was worth the wait, I don't usually frequent such high profile places like this so maybe I was a little star struck, in more ways than one. I arrived about 2pm and needed to wait in the queue, about 45mins to an hour, not a big deal... More

Visiting the Peninsula in Hong Kong is a must! In the same way you have to visit the Eiffel Tower, in Paris or the Statue of Liberty, in New York. The simple sight of this majestic hotel is breathtaking. The Peninsula green Rolls Royce Phantoms lined up on the driveway make you stop in awe. As soon as you set... More

Visited last May. Absolute bliss. Classical decor - beautiful space - wonderful ambience. English afternoon tea was perfect. Beautiful silver service - perfectly presented tea. Not quite the London Ritz but very good. We really enjoyed it. Very highly recommended.

Took my son there to try the afternoon tea. Waited in line for about thirty minutes. The lobby has an atmosphere of being in a palace.Ordered the tea for two, and I love the tea set, and the silverware. The food was just so so. And that is why I did not give it a five stars. Total cost is... More

Please don't call it 'high tea'. Only Americans do that. It's still a lovely, calm civilised space in the heart of the Tsimshatsui madness after all these years. Lovely silver service tea, with yummy sandwiches and pastries, served in an old school style. Always worth a visit if you are over that way.

but we found the breakfast a little ordinary - three of us had the Chinese breakfast and one the more traditional eggs and trimmings. Good, but not up to the standard of the surroundings, excellent staff and general atmosphere. A beautiful spot but the breakfast is just - breakfast - with a big price tag.

I was in Hong Kong in July and had afternoon tea here, beautiful food, fabulous services and the atmosphere was great! I would definitely recommend it! We got there a bit early and had a drink so didn't have to wait too long to be seated for the actual afternoon tea which was nice as I know it can get... More

We wanted a sophisticated place to meet some business colleagues for a quick late meal and drink and we wanted a location near The Bund. While The Bund is a short walk, the recommendation was spot-on. It is warm and welcoming and in the evening has an excellent jazz band playing, not too loud like many bars/lobby's have, it was...
