Fabulous Van Gogh themed afternoon tea at the Oscar Wilde lounge. Cannot fault anything. The chef accommodated our challenging dietary requirements. The pianist was very accomplished. The superb and thoughtful service from Jozef was the perfect finishing touch. Thank you!

Champagne afternoon tea in the Oscar Wilde lounge (afternoon tea was Van Gogh themed). Food was excellent and (awkward) dietary requirements accommodated with ease, even a cheesecake made to order! Very attentive and friendly service. Our waiter was Jozsef who could not have done a a better job (thank you!). Would highly recommend.

My friends and I had the most creative afternoon tea at the Oscar Wilde room. The room itself truly personifies the opulence of the man it was named after. We were lucky enough to make it for the Van Gogh themed tea with the most beautiful and scrumptious sandwiches and desserts. We would like to thank Jozsef and the team for an amazing afternoon.

Having stayed in many luxury London Hotels Cafe Royal is disappointing. On arrival I had to ask three times because a quick coffee was so long in coming, it then came in a paper cup. £750 a night I would expect cup and saucer or mug. Saturday night we were told we could only have table in the lounge for half an hour as they were busy. No evening meal is available as the grill closes at five. Turn down service didn't happen as you should press a light outside the room which we were not aware of, so food plates were in the room all night. Breakfast was painfully slow, three waiters offering water when all we wanted was tea and coffee. won't be going back.
