We had the Afternoon Tea there, and it was excellent. The room is really beautiful and they have a great service.

Excellent, as always. Service, food, setting all beautiful and the harpist adds an extra level.

I love coming here for afternoon tea. It's such a cosy, relaxing lounge and the soft music in the background by the harpist completed the luxurious ambience. The food is plentiful and I recommend the free flow option.

We had the endless champagne option and it was brilliant. Service was as expected from the Sofitel - Faultless. Left there full up and bit wobbly.

Beautiful setting, and food was very nice. Only downside is they didn't have anything less than Champagne (cheapest at £75) which feels a bit elitist to me. Sandwiches were fine, but egg mayo tasted very strange to me! Scones were wonderful, as were the pastry but could have done with some 'old favorites' as they were all quite niche meaning quite a few were left and the rest fort over! Good value for money though. Service very slow but polite, patient and friendly.

What a wonderful experience. the atmosphere was beautiful, the tea and sandwiches were delicious and the staff extremely pleasant. I've only been to London twice and both times had a lovely afternoon tea at the Rose Lounge.

We thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea at the Sofitel St James, which we had in the Rose Lounge. The service and decor were excellent and the food was very good. We chose the 'free flowing champagne' and it really did just keep coming!
