Great Experience!

Afternoon tea is the quintessential London experience. This one is located in an older hotel, thus the tea room was cozy and more traditional in feel. We were seated right by the window so that we could look out and see London passing by. The selection of teas was phenomenal I recommend the jasmine blossom and the scones were absolutely delicious. I went with my daughter and they had hot chocolate for her! We also got the traditional finger sandwiches as well as a selection of pastries. Overall, a great experience and a nice way to experience London.

Tea is well served, the finger sandwiches very good, but it would have cost much less if we went on our on. Not nice to know hat when we arrived there.

It's nice to have tea exactly as the British do, and then nearby to Buckingham's. It's expensive though. The hotel is really nice and elegant, and the staff is very friendly and professional. The food is tasty, and the tea is excellent.

Royal Mewsの向かいで場所は最高。肝心のサンドイッチやスイーツは、舌の肥えた日本人には物足りないかも。
