Bar staff have no idea how to make cocktails, had to look up recipe and then served it up tasting nothing like it should. Tasted terrible. Very expensive, but after waiting 15 minutes was in too much of a hurry to complain or send it back. Never will I be back.

I reviewed this a few months back and I'm pleased to see some improvements. The function areas are no longer closed off and you get to enjoy the splendid views pretty much whenever you want (unlike a few months back when there seemed to be endless private functions blocking guests and visitors). It's a great spot for a quiet drink... More

Wouldn't recommend this to anybody hoping to get good service. Other than the views the atmosphere of the Lord Ashley Lounge is very disappointing compared to the old world charm that it used to have, it was quite obvious that the staff lacked training in customer service right down to cold coffee and when asked for sugar stacked 7 sachets...

My first visit to The Lord Ashley Lounge must have set a high precedent because every time since then it has been one step down after another. I keep hoping i'll experience that first impressive instance where the bright enthusiastic bartenders served our drinks in good time and went one step further to make us an experimental cocktail to taste,...

We went there for pre-dinner drinks prior to dinner at Sea Salt. The drinks took approximately 20 minutes to arrive (given we ordered 4 cocktails and 2 x soft drinks, I was expecting these a lot quicker) The patronage was low and there seemed to be plenty of staff. The price of the cocktails mainly ranged between $17 and $22... More
