Afternoon tea is served in a pretty sunny room overlooking Basil Street. The service was excellent and the sandwiches and cakes delicious, with just the right amount although we were encouraged to order more of anything we wanted.

    We enjoyed our afternoon tea at The Capital. We especially enjoyed the tea room, a quiet beautiful setting for conversation and a lovely tea service. The food was well prepared and beautifully presented.

    Had a wonderful afternoon tea with cocktails. A beautiful boutique hotel in such a quiet spot in London you wouldn't think you were in the hubbub of the City.
    The food was so tasty and we had double helpings!! The lady who looked after us couldn't have done more. It was a wonderful afternoon tea and will definitely go back

    Hotel in great location near Harrods. Excellent service, staff very attentive. Lovely sandwiches and little cakes and the deal we had with the free flowing cocktails was very good value. My only small criticism is the room where we had the tea although nice decor was enclosed with no windows so felt a bit stuffy as it was warm outside at the time.

    The sandwichs were nice but the deserts were delicious
    As it was free flowing cocktails I was a bit upset that I had to keep asking for our drinks to be refilled ??

    Lovely welcome, setting & service. Very disappointed with the very weak cocktails. Cosmopolitan tasted like sweet juice. Sandwiches ok. Very bland. Cakes not bad. Manager on duty not helpful at all.
