    Problem happened with our food but it was sorted by the manager with a lovely gesture. The food was lovely but there was no atmosphere or people around to ask for help or greet us. Glad it was discounted due to the fact that if we had paid we would have been very disappointed!

    We went to the Mercure for afternoon tea and it was a very disappointing experience. The sandwiches had obviously been made for hours and were like cardboard. When we complained we were told they'd been made fresh that morning (it was 3pm). The cakes were also disappointing. The scones were soggy as though they'd just been defrosted. At the end we were asked whether 'other than the sandwiches' everything had been ok, and charged over £100. Definitely not to be repeated.

    Went here for afternoon tea with some friends. One of the best place I have been to for afternoon tea, sat in window overlooking Piccadilly Gardens which was a lovely spot. Food was absolutely delicious and staff were very attentive and friendly. Will definitely go back.

    Clean hotel. Table seat overlooking Victoria Gardens. Booked the afternoon tea.

    The waitress was polite enough but no side plates were included, expecting us to eat a prawn sandwich and catch any droppings in my lap.

    My partner asked for a plate and ONE PLATE was brought. I then had to ask for a plate for myself too .

    The pot of tea was made without warning the pot and with barely boiled water under temperature. It tasted very poor.

    There was no Schweppes tonic water with Quinine for the G&T.

    The peace was broken by the constant background TV showing the football. The hotel needs to consider who its afternoon tea customers are and not try to service all kinds in one isolated area.

    I was bitterly disappointed and disgruntled at paying the £16.95 per person and would welcome an offer of compensation of some kind from Mercure.
