The location of the hotel is brilliant and easy to find from Waterloo or embankment. Very clean and the chandelier is beautiful.
However on arrival no one was there to greet us and there is no obvious entrance to the lobby lounge. Also I know the name should have prepared me but you are sat in a lobby so the breeze from the doors opening made the experience cold and you felt very exposed by guests walking past you to go to their rooms.
The staff are very friendly but take a long time to get their attention if you needed more tea or the bill.
We had the champagne afternoon tea. And I had a vegetarian option. Which was great however when they brought desert I was asked if I was a 'picky' vegetarian as if not I could have all the deserts. I'm not 'picky' I just don't want to eat animal. That made me quite cross and uncomfortable.
The tea got cold very quickly and was not very flavourful. And we had to ask for this to be replaced which took a long time.
The cakes were beautiful but sadly did not taste as good as they appeared. The sandwiches were lovely however and you could have more. The champagne was also of a good standard.
Upon being served the cakes we were also given what we were told were goody bags. But they were just bags with advertising and pricing for the spa and hotel. Very poor and we left these behind.
I have had afternoon tea at quite a few places and therefore would not return here again as I feel there are better options for your money. The company I had made the afternoon enjoyable not the hotel.
