I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea with friends, with beautiful harp music playing in the background. A very relaxing and enjoyable afternoon spent in a lovely atmosphere. The champagne, tea ,sandwiches, scones and cakes were all delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    I went for an afternoon tea at the Waldorf with a friend of mine in order to celebrate my birthday. The hostess wasn't nice at all and on our way to the table she even took us through the work station in the middle of the room. Then we were waiting for about 20 min for anyone to come over and ask us what we would like to drink. The food was nice enough but the service could have been much better.

    Service was exceptionally SLOW. Reception desk kept us waiting for 10 minutes while they were on the telephone. There seemed to be plenty of staff, but they were not doing anything. We had to keep asking for soya milk and sat for nearly 30 minutes after finishing our afternoon tea before we received the bill and then had to call some-one to take our money. The poor service rather spoiled our birthday celebration.
