We had a fabulous afternoon tea today, celebrating a Birthday. We chose The Lanesborough after seeing the head pastry chef, Kevin, on Bake Off The Professionals. Definitely the right choice as the pastries were amazing - beautiful and delicious! The service was fabulous - the waiting staff were very friendly and attentive. The pianist was also lovely to listen to. Would highly recommend The Lanesborough afternoon tea to anyone looking for a wonderful treat!

We are all so very proud of what they achieved on the show and I am so pleased that they did not dissapoint with their pastries. Having the pianist play whilst you enjoy afternoon tea really does make it extra special. Thank you once again and we hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards, Stuart Geddes, Managing Director

My mother and I had a wonderful 3 night stay; everything was perfect, from the fabulous customer service to the opulent surroundings. The spa area was beautiful, a great place to relax after a busy day sightseeing. All the staff were extremely friendly and professional, housekeeping first class but for us the stand out members were Mickael and the team in the library bar, they created a wonderful atmosphere and made us feel very welcome. From arrival to departure, we loved every minute of our stay and I cannot wait to return for Christmas!

Dear Suntan01, How lovely to learn that you and your mother had the most wonderful 3 night stay with us here at the Lanesborough. Great that you managed to get out into the heart of London and enjoy all of the sightseeing, and then come back to your home away from home. The team will be so pleased to learn that they looked after you so well in providing first class service. Rest assured i shall pass on all of your kind words to the team, and a special mention to Mickael. The festive season at the Lanesborough is well and truly extra special, so we are delighted to be able to welcome you back then! Kind regards, Stuart Geddes, Managing Director

Came here with a group of 16 ladies last weekend for the Peggy Porschen Afternoon Tea and had a really wonderful time. The setting is so elegant, the service from everybody we encountered could not be faulted and the food itself was superb (not to mention the cocktail which was delicious and looked divine). There was a pianist playing (who took requests) and a very chatty and amusing member of staff in particular, who was a real character. All the other staff were so attentive, polite, friendly and helpful. The sandwiches were some of the best I have ever tasted, the cakes delicious and the scones so light . This is definitely one of the best afternoon teas I have had in London.

We celebrated a birthday here. Naturally, the room, food, and service were everything you might expect. What really stands out though is the staff. They have managed to create an atmosphere where you feel welcomed as part of the family yet still consistent with a slightly formal elegance. We were made to feel very special at every turn - from the reception staff to the restaurant and everyone in between. It's also the only hotel I have ever visited where the bed was more comfortable than my own. There is a sense of quiet and calm in the hotel that makes it feel very restful and tranquil despite being a very busy location. The food was exceptional - at dinner and breakfast. Dinner was just a lovely experience and it's difficult to express how perfect the overall experience was. I had a massage in the spa which was also superlative. There were some v small niggles perhaps- a dusting cloth left in the room we were shown to, with no-one taking it away, despite all of us looking at it (it was bright pink and stood out!) , a male member of staff in the spa who wasn't wearing a mask despite his female colleagues telling him in front of guests that he should be wearing one) but that was small fry really. . We are both well travelled and have stayed in many beautiful places but this hotel for both of us, was as good as it gets. A very memorable stay and we would certainly go back.

Dear SuziB_11, It goes without saying that all of the team who looked after you during your birthday celebration stay with us will be so pleased to learn that you felt special in everything single turn. It really is such a compliment. Thank you for highlighting the small niggles, and although I am happy they did not outshine your stay, I shall be sure to raise this with the relevant team members. Thank you once again and I very much hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards, Stuart Geddes, Managing Director

We had afternoon tea at The Lanesborough yesterday and it was absolutely beautiful. The surroundings were exquisite, the staff were all very friendly, professional and helpful and the food was delicious. I would thoroughly recommend the afternoon tea here . As always, if you do have any special dietary requirements give them a call before visiting and I'm certain they will do whatever they can to help. We only had the afternoon tea - we didn't stay here so I am unable to comment on anything about the hotel.
