A lovely setting with great service, fabulous food and flowing champagne.

My mother & I had a stunning afternoon, and every aspect was first class. Carlos made sure our glasses were constantly full, teapots were topped up, and extra sandwiches, pastries and scones were offered, sadly no room for anymore. This all adds to the value as there is so much. The scones were served warm and the selection of jams were the best I have ever tasted. The atmosphere was lovely and there was no rush to leave, making us wish our day trip could be extended. We left with our bellies full, carrying our final tea cakes for the journey home. Being opposite Hyde Park we were able to take a stroll to walk some of it off! We have had afternoon teas in other 5 star establishments and this is by far the best in every way. The only downside - living too far away to return every weekend!

Excellent afternoon tea with very generous champagne top-ups! Nothing was too much bother for the very kind and attentive staff - from catering for two of the group who don't eat butter to changing a chair for one guest who had a bad back. No pressure to leave, beautiful surroundings and fantastic value overall. Would most definitely recommend a visit.

Wonderful food beautifully presented. The waitress was very attentive and couldn't do enough to help us make the most of the experience. Champagne glass was topped up regularly and extra sandwiches, tea and cakes offered. I mentioned in the booking that it was a birthday celebration and we were brought a liycake with a candle and had Happy Birthday sang to us. The best afternoon tea in London!

I have been lucky enough to have had a few afternoon teas recently at Marriott hotels. This one was very disappointing. When we arrived we were kept waiting for a long time at the desk. When we were seated, the hostess was very helpful as we did not want to be seated so close to the piano where a lady was loudly bashing out tunes. She said that she would do her best and we sat for 20 minutes waiting and during that time were not asked about any refreshments except what tea we would like. We were then reseated and waited a total of 40 minutes before we got anything at all. By which time we were overly hungry but could not seem to make the waiting staff understand that we wanted food and champagne. Not just tea. It could be that they were short staffed but they were definitely too wedded to the process by which tea gets served first. When food did arrive the sandwiches were very good but the scones flat and dry. But by that time we had pretty much run out of steam. Of the small cakes we only really ate the very good little carrot cake topped with fresh pineapple. We were offered a take home slice of cake, a nice touch, but only one of the three of us cold be faffed to carry some by that point. Service and food at both Lanes and County Hall are far superior. I do not recommend The Grosvenor House. We were very disappointed.

Always enjoy dining here. Overall great experience.
However, service isn't always great. My friends and I sat with an empty glass for over 20minutes.

Afternoon tea with unlimited champagne was fabulous. The service was great and our waiter (Atty ??) was very attentive and looked after us very well. We were asked if we would like extra sandwiches which we accepted, the cakes and scones were delicious. Will definitely visit again.

From our arrival till we left, the staff were so attentive and friendly, we were looked after by a lovely young lady called Siri and she cold not do enough to make our visit more pleasant, 10/10 for staff efficiency.
