I was bought afternoon tea vouchers for this hotel as a Christmas present. Staff were friendly and polite. Afternoon tea was excellent, a good choice of sweet and savoury. The scones were really nice. I would in the future consider a stay at this hotel for a longer period of time.

My sister and I had afternoon tea at Monboddo. The restaurant itself is lovely and the staff were welcoming. The afternoon tea however was quite disappointing. We have tried many afternoon teas in Edinburgh and I like those that have a home made and personal touch. The presentation was very bland with not much colour and didn’t look very appealing. The sandwiches were ok but not enough of them and may have been nice to have an additional savoury option such as a tartlet. The scones were small and didn’t look home made and the cakes were dry and not very visually appealing. Coupled with the fact we had to ask for our tea rather than being offered choices, it made for a rather disappointing experience. There is a lot of room for improvement in Hilton afternoon teas in general. We have been to 3 Hilton hotel afternoon teas and have been disappointed in them all. The best afternoon teas are visually appealing with an added personal touch to make them feel like more of a special experience.
