We came to London for a girlie weekend and booked the Willy Wonka afternoon tea at One Aldwych London. Our server for the afternoon was Augustus (his actual real name!) He couldn’t do enough for us and made sure we always had plenty of food and drinks during our time there. I can’t recommend this place enough!

Managed to get a booking for wife’s birthday. Is definitely a little different to the traditional afternoon tea. Both kids enjoyed it too! Savouries served first with some interesting flavours like the salmon and beetroot macaroon (it does work!). Cocktails are fun too, with a bit of theatre. Kids versions available. Finally the sweet selection. Really tasty. Also a vegetarian selection available. There are traditional scones but again some unusual treats too. Not cheap but probably about usual for afternoon tea in london

Went for the Charlie and the chocolate factory themed afternoon tea and it definitely didn't disappoint. The savoury dishes were fabulous and it was good not filling up on lots of bread before the main attraction (for me anyway). The cakes were varied and creative and tasted every bit as good as they looked. The presentation was first class and the service was faultless. They also offer a vegetarian/vegan option. Can't recommend this too highly - it was definitely worth a trip in to London

Very warm greeting by staff and concierge - a home from home. Extremely comfortable room and amenities and great to get back into the gym before breakfast. Fantastic cocktails on offer in the beautiful and iconic lobby bar, followed by a good nights sleep!

This has been such a long year and we wanted to give the kids a treat so we decided to visit the pool facilities at One Aldwych. Covid guidelines means you get one hour to yourself with only one bubble allowed in the pool. We showed up on a weekend morning drenched to the bone from the downpour with 3 and 5 year olds, and the staff couldn’t be lovelier. The space is immaculate and super clean: changing room, pool, and showers. Jane at reception was so friendly and made visiting a 5 star hotel with small children less intimidating. We had an amazing time and felt like life was normal again. Cannot wait for covid restrictions to be a thing of the past and try their afternoon tea.
