We had afternoon tea in their garden - it is a beautiful oasis from the city, very charming area. The staff were attentive, professional and friendly. Not pretentious at all even though it is a high end establishment (incredible interior design). The tea and treats were delicious. Highly recommend!

Afternoon Tea at Number Sixteen hotel is an elegant and luxurious affair. With the option to take tea in any of the public spaces, from the library to the tree-filled hotel garden, there is a setting for every weather and occasion.

The Number Sixteen menu covers classic afternoon tea with the usual sandwiches and scones on offer, as well as some lesser-seen creations, such as arancini, accompanied by sweet options such as Bakewell tart. A lighter option on offer is the ‘fruit tea’, which consists of 5 plates of colourful treats themed around blueberries, orange, lime zest and honey. A gluten-free tea is available on request.

The stunning landscaped garden offers a blissful escape from the bustle of London, whilst the colourful drawing room full of modern, decorative art and bright pink fabrics, is a funky, laidback setting. The cosy library and light-flooded conservatory are also open for afternoon tea at Number 16 in London.

Number Sixteen is situated in the heart of South Kensington, with the museums on its doorstep, and South Kensington Tube Station just a 2-minute walk away.

    As if you step in to a fairytale world. The most kindest waiters, lovely afternoon tea in a dream garden!

    Disappointed with poor service. Afternoon tea itself was not that good: dry sandwiches with boring filling, large but not sufficiently raised scones, cupcakes and brownies which looked bought from corner shop... Even to top up hotwater to tea pots we needed to catch waitress's attention several times. Although the decoration of lounges and dining was beautiful and the garden was wonderful, afternoon tea experience there was not good.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea. The food was delicious. We were warmly welcomed and stayed to read in the sitting room.

    Mostly good service but had to ask for hot water twice and a tomato sandwich is not a vegetarian option, quite mean really.

    Number 16 is a small hotel with a lovely restaurant with a garden setting. Afternoon tea is traditional with a selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes. Service and presentation is delightful with the option of eating in the garden if the weather is good. The tea is competitively priced at £22 per head, but the choices were rather safe, whereas a year earlier there had been a more interesting selection.

    Went for a cream tea and sat in garden. The hotel and garden area were beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was beautifully presented and the scones were great. Some of the cakes and sandwiches were a little dry, but tasted good. The cocktail was amazing. Would love to come back again.

    It's a wonderful spot and the garden terrace was so quaint. We really enjoyed our time here. Staff were all polite and accommodating when we asked for things. There was some things that were left out during the order process. One of my guests didn't eat seafood and one was vegetarian and they requested for this when we ordered but we just got all standard tea sets which meant they wouldn't eat half of the sandwiches. This booking was also for a 30th birthday which was mentioned at time of booking and although a surprise was mentioned nothing was brought up during our visit which was a shame. Both teas wasn't great if I'm honest (our second pot of tea was teabags and not tea leaves) but the bellini's were great!
    No major issues though and I would recommend and return. Loved the furnishings in the hotel. All looked beautiful especially the yellow upholstered arm chairs!
