Came here for afternoon tea with friends which was exquisite and the service, attentive and very courteous. We were delighted with the selection. Small bite size pieces of fresh, sweet and rich fare which kept coming on request, along with a fine choice of fresh teas.
In that respect, there's little to fault it and in fairness, that is why we went after all plus it's easily located from Covent Garden.
Sadly though, in spite of it being rather grand from the outside, the inside is totally lacking in any sort of atmosphere at all.
Judging by the clientele, I'd say this is the sort of hotel which mainly caters to businessmen as it doesn't really tick any other boxes. It's clean, bright and unexpectedly open plan. Its smart minimalism though, feels rather at odds with its architecture, which spoilt the overall experience somewhat.
This is subjective of course and I have to say that, we were comfortable enough going as a mixed group, but it's not nearly pretty, grand or elegant enough to make me go back another time with girlfriends.
Silly maybe, but there it is.
