    We had a lovely afternoon having afternoon tea at the Hilton York. The price was very reasonable especially for the champagne afternoon tea and you did get a lot for your money.. It was well worth it and I would definitely recommend it.

    Booked this as a treat for friends so that we could meet for a long overdue catch up. We actually stayed for 5 hours! This caused no problems with the staff who were only too happy to serve us with more drinks on request. Good service and food, we left feeling quite full!

    This visit was as a result of purchasing a 'voucher' for traditional afternoon tea. During our visit it was clear most of the other diners were there for the same reason as us, as a result we felt that the normal high standard of service I have previously received when dining within a Hilton hotel wasn't achieved. It felt a bit like a 'sausage factory' based on our experience and watching how the other customers were dealt with. This may be due to many reasons e.g. Everyone on vouchers - may not get a tip, repetitive and not really Hilton guests .... It was the little things such as explaining what was on the cake stand, are you a vegetarian?, serving with an open pen in the hand. No satisfaction check, no contact from serving to leaving. These were all small issues but would have made the whole experience so much better and fitting given the class and location of the hotel.

    Belated birthday treat. The staff and service was spot on. Sandwiches , cakes and scones were so fresh and nicely presented. We were not rushed and spent a good hour and half eating and chatting. The afternoon was finished of with a glass of prosecco. Would visit again.
