“Understaffed ”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Shame nice looking place but due to obvious poor management young girl left on her own could not cope with what should be a routine breakfast time. Good staff poor management

“Decently priced breakfast”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Hotel restaurant attached to Quality Maitrise just up the street from Marriott Maida Vale. Prices are somewhat less than the average hotel buffet, making for a nice alternative to the overpriced chain hotel ripoffs.

“Lovely Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Had a lovely afternoon tea here, good selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones and loads of teas/coffee to choose from. Service was attentive, though the atmosphere was a little lacking. Overall, it was really enjoyable

“Not worth the effort of booking”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I tried to book by email which was ignored for a week so I telephoned them and spoke to someone who clearly had no idea how to take a booking - I had to tell him what info he needed from me after he tried to pass me back to the hotel reception. Later that day they finally replied to my email to say that they no longer honour the SmartCard vouchers which we wanted to use. The service was friendly enough but the food strictly average and definitely not worth the effort it took to make the booking.

“Beautiful food...worth the wait.”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Really enjoyed the menu they offered at Rafkins, they food came out piping hot and i really enjoyed it. The quality compensated for the longer than expected wait.
