I didn't stay at the hotel, as I live in town, but we did go for the Saturday tea and I can't find another spot to comment so here goes...
I had family coming from out of town and a couple of us were celebrating birthdays, so my husband suggested for me to take them here. I honestly hadn't even thought of this and was quite impressed with his suggestion!
Tea is only hosted on Friday and Saturday [from what I see] and it was perfect. We made reservations ahead of time and were seated at our table for four. A tea trolly was brought out and we got to choose from a variety of loose leaf teas. I really enjoyed the Monk Blend, as did my aunt and my mom and sister both tried the Canadian Maple and loved it too! A three tiered platter was also brought out and contained items like sandwiches, scones, chocolate covered strawberries, a smoke salmon wrap slice [my fave] and numerous other danities, squares, etc. A little veggie plate was also included for those who like their veggies!
Tea time is an hour and a half and cost us $19+change. I grew up in Victoria, BC and always heard about tea at the Empress but it was quite pricey. I felt that the Hotel Sask was really reasonably priced for all that we got, plus atmosphere.
I will most definitely be back with girlfriends in the near future!
