    Afternoon tea in a lovely room with a very nice relaxed atmosphere. All of staff are helpful and friendly, the ladies checking the coats were very helpful when I lost my scarf they promptly found it for me. The scones, sandwiches and cakes were delicious and the teas were lovely. There were 6 of us in the booking, 3 adults and 3 children, and we had a large table with plenty of room for us all. 1 1/2 hours was plenty of time to drink, eat and relax. They reduced the children's bill by 50%, which was an unexpected surprise. I would defiantly come here again. We all had a wonderful time and took boxes of cakes home too. Thank you very much to everyone there who made our afternoon a wonderful one.

    Very pleasant afternoon in the Waldorf Hilton having the Afternoon Tea Package.. Nicely presented and much more than we could eat.. The scones served warm were particularly nice.. Would go again before an evening theatre show.. Handy location very close to Covent Garden..

    The Waldorf is a beautiful hotel so me and my friends were looking forward to spending some time in there having afternoon tea. It's not very easy to find where they hold the tea so we had to find someone and ask.
    When we mentioned our booking unfortunately it wasn't on their system so I had to show the confirmation email. Luckily, after 15 minutes of waiting, they set a table up for us. They did apologise and said they didn't understand why the booking hadn't gone through. The sandwiches were a little lacking in filling I thought. Everything else was lovely, though the staff could've been a bit more attentive. We waited quite a while to order drinks, then a fair while to arrive.
    This was all on a festive offer which was good value. So far though, the best place I've had afternoon tea is still The Grosvener Hotel on Park Lane.

    We were disappointed with the whole experience. One of our party does not like fancy sandwiches. So we requested some plain ones. The staff checked with him before they came out.however when they arrived he still got the same as us.
    The waiter did not even pour our first cup of tea as in other establishments. We had to ask for extra tea as they did not come to us any more after the initial delivery of food

    Great food wonderful atmosphere - - and a Harp as musical accompaniment! Expensive - but good value for the money ! Worth a visit !

  • ((*** 15 December 2016 by Shirley Simon from London

    the experience was nice but very over-priced. the usual afternoon tea price was hiked up due to the festive season (we had a christmas cracker), and not worth the extra

    This was to be a 1st wedding anniversary treat for my husband whilst visiting London.
    We had to book the 'festive' afternoon tea because it was December.
    The food was very mediocre. The warm scones scored well but the 'festive' selection of cakes looked liked they had come from a supermarket and we had no appetite for them.
    Compared to our tea at 'Browns' the previous year this was poor value for money.
    The highlight of the afternoon: the beautiful harp music being played throughout.
