“high tea- yes please!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

Had a lovely high tea service in this grand old hotel.
3 tier plate set up with special local goodies! Expensive for tea and yummy eats but worth it!
I will be back with the family.

“exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2011

We visited this delightful hotel for lunch after arguing with both guests and tour guide (can you believe, some had brought no money with them?). After leaving the rest of the disgruntled party at tour guide's choice of restaurant (for his commission....you know) we entered in grand style and were greeted by immaculately attired waiting staff, eager to delight. First impressions were WOW what an amazing place, quite retro and colonial, palacial atmosphere, spotlessly clean and promising grandeur and excellence. Gracefully seated by the balustrade with impeccable table accoutrements, we felt we were in for a treat. And what a treat it was; probably the best meal we have ever had, well, ever. Five star everything and we have promised ourselves a stay next time in SL. We even felt that had they ushered us into the restroom to eat our meals, we would have been honoured to be seated and would have enjoyed the experience immensely.
