23-May-2021, The champainge afternoon tea for two, was disgusting, to say the least. The finger sandwiches were made from the cheapest of breads with the crust on. The filling could barely be found, the taste of cheap margarine was all that could be distinguished. The cheese filling was processed from a tube. The ham was also the cheapest available and barely any. The egg and mayonnaise was boiled egg white in a greasy mess. When we thought things couldn't get nastier the scones and cakes arrived, we didn't recognise the scones and had to ask what they were, they looked like fat biscuits brought home from school by a 5 year old attempting their first bake. The other offerings were all the cheapest shop bought. the Brownie bites were still frozen, there was couple of big yellow lumps of what I think might have been cake and rest was most unappealing. The Champaign was a nasty sweet Prosecco. The cups and saucers mismatched, which is acceptable in a country tea room, but not a so called 5 star Mayfair establishment. When we demanded to see the manger, she told us bare faced lies, telling us the scones had been made by the chef, when challenged she corrected to somebody else made them, but didn't seem to know who, no qualified professional would have allowed any of these offerings out of the kitchen. It was a very strange experience, we were the only guests, it was obvious there had been no visitors for a very longtime and there was no one staying at the hotel. I'm mystified as to why they accepted the booking, if the hotel is not open. The only positive is the waitress she was a delight.

Myself and my partner had afternoon tea at this hotel on Saturday 5th December (purchased deal from Groupon). We were very disappointed with the entire service. Firstly, the pictures of the afternoon tea on the website look beautiful. Which is why I purchased this. What we received was quite the opposite. The finger sandwiches had next to no filling. The scones were bite size. In the pictures it shows the afternoon tea comes with large scones and bagels aswel as the finger sandwiches. We did not have any bagels. The small pieces of cake were dry and flavourless. The decor in the pictures also look beautiful but when we arrived it was dark lighting and a very drab atmosphere with a dead rose in a vase on our table. I find this to be false advertising. The experience the customer should receive should be exactly how they make it look on the website. Otherwise it is a complete disappointment. We had to ask for sugar for our teas as none was supplied on the table. We also had to ask for strawberry jam to go with our scones. The lady bought us honey...so in the end my partner had to go and get the strawberry jam himself. This was a very disappointing visit. Had I not of got a deal and had I paid the full price I would have walked out and asked for a refund. Avoid.

Dear Tasha1409 Well this is a complete surprise! The Saturday team were terribly disappointed to see your review and email as your feedback on the day was completely the opposite! The duty manager took particular care to check with you on the day as she had helped resolve the issues with your voucher and could not understand why you didn't tell her you were unhappy. Please understand, the website pictures are an indication of what we serve but of course we change the offerings from time to time and particularly at the moment when reliable supplies of certain items (bagels being one) can be difficult. The scones however are exactly the same size. When I got your email, I personally tried the cakes and scones left from the weekend and they were delicious. The rose was fresh too, purchased by me on Friday evening. We served 40 identical afternoon teas over the weekend and all the feedback was great, at least that is what we were told! So we are really baffled and so very sorry you felt unable to tell us on Saturday when we might have been able to fix any problems and ensure you had a more enjoyable experience. Perhaps you might try again one day soon when hopefully, the bagels will be back and you will have a better time. All the best Annette S.

We had high expectations but were left quite disappointed at the whole experience. When we arrived, we were offered a champagne glass and then the food, we waited for a while but nobody brought us tea or even the tea menu - we had to ask for it. The flavours we asked were not available so we had to choose something else and the tea was Twinings bags - really cheap - and not freshly brewed as the website states. The quantity of tea provided was barely two small cups. There were no refills, when we asked we were told we would need to pay extra. The food was not that tasty - especially the scones which were extremely hard and did not feel fresh. It’s a shame because the hotel is in a great location and could do much better.

We stayed in the hotel 11-13September 2020 in the midst of Covid but wanted a break as our event at the O2 had been postponed. I cannot recommend the people enough. They went out their way to make our stay excellent under the current situation we all find ourselves in. The hotel is very stringent with Health and Safety so you have no need to be concerned.The rooms were great and the beds extremelly comforatble. Annett, Beata and Pregina, thanks very much for all your help and make our stay so enjoyable.

Dear CobraRT3 It was our absolute pleasure to meet you and to be able to look after you. We continue to stay very alert to all health and hygiene requirements and have now been able to open at weekends for afternoon tea and snacks so are gradually reopening different services. London is still a great place to visit at the moment - relatively quiet and still loads to see and do so we hope to be able to welcome you back again soon. Very best regards Annette S

Due to covid19 the hotel is not fully operational but the staff went out of their way to help us. Everyone was friendly, and very helpful. Beata was always available to sort out any queries and when we discovered a drip from our ceiling, we were moved very quickly. Annette went out of her way to assist us when we had an issue with the fact that they were not serving breakfast. Excellent location and I will say the beds were extremely comfy!! Thanks for a lovely stay.

Dear avon67 You are most welcome! Delighted to hear you found the beds so comfortable, the mattresses were replaced last year with a new type so it is good to know you have enjoyed them. It can be a bit tricky at the moment balancing expectations against the current constraints - we are trying our best to come up with solutions and I am so glad everything worked out for you and you enjoyed your visit. Do come and stay again soon, we will be delighted to welcome you back. Warmest regards Annette S.
