I booked afternoon tea at the 5* Luton Hoo Hotel as a birthday treat for my partner.We passed through the gates onto the driveway of the grounds and these were very impressive. On arrival we were greeted by the doorman who directed us to the lounge. Unfortunately from that point things very quickly went downhill. We stood at the entrance... More

Afternoon tea was really nice. Staff were constantly topping up my tea. Cakes were good. This is a great place to bring older family members. The grounds around the house allow for a lovely walk.

We had afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday. We were greeted at the door, shown to our table, the staff couldn't do enough for us. The food was amazing and the views are incredible! Certainly worth a visit!!

The afternoon tea experience is lovely here. The tea is lovely, the food selection is nice. The service is a little slow and needed some push to get the tea served on time. I guess it was a busy afternoon. I was happy that they packed the left overs for us.

My wife and I were given an afternoon tea for 2 at Luton Hoo as a present. On arrival we were greeted and shown to a round table set for 2. Unfortunately the seats were very deep soft armchairs which made sitting up to the table rather uncomfortable. A pot of tea was brought to the table and poured for... More

Quality of food isn't on par with the pricing I understand this is partly because of the location in the mansion house at the Luton Hoo Estate but to honestly hotel as a whole although still very impressive is in need of some modernisation. Interior is ageing and in places is seriously tired and worn, still sofas in the lounge... More
