Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The tea at the Sanderson is amazing. Fun for a girls trip, couples, or a creative fun outing. The tea is excellent! (Try the Cheshire Cat, it is my favorite.) The staff is wonderful. Everyone went above and beyond to be helpful. Shout out to...Barbara the barista. I will definitely be coming back.More

Sanyogita has been the best host for us during our afternoon tea session. Making it a special one for the Alice in the Wonderland experience. Ordered the White Rabbit tea and it complimented well with the tea set. They have a vegetable and vegan option...too if that’s your thing.More

Excellent service. The food was very good, nice presentation, but the best thing was the team, no doubts. My favorite thing here were the tea's, and the Benedict eggs! We were really taken care of by the maître and Sanyogita. I must say I felt...like I was at home. The decoration of the hotel is also very welcoming and comfy, which helps the experience. In a nutshell, I would definitely recommend coming here for breakfast... or something else!More

I've been in the restaurant with my partner last Monday. At the beginning everything was going well, we ordered a bottle of wine and accidentally the waiter broke the cork, he went to the bar to ask for help, and he came back with the...same bottle but unfortunately when he served it was some cork inside the bottle so we asked if he could change it. our surprise was when we seen the bartender taking a bottle already opened, straining the wine that we send back and refilling it.. as we saw this we asked to the waiter for a new bottle… He changed without problem but the bartender seem really upset about it. when the food came it was a bit cold but we didn’t complain at we thought it was already to much, for our surprise when the steak that we ordered came, it wasn’t cooked at the point we asked but again we just ate it, two bites because at the third we noticed a weird flavour, as if it was off… we just asked for the bill and went out. We really do not recommend it at all!!More

It used to be a popular bar and restaurant. Now the atmosphere is very dull and it looks like the restaurant is slowly dying. The only thing I liked it was the service of the waiter girl, she was very polite and nice. The food...wasn’t tasty at all. Definitely not coming backMore

I had afternoon tea at Sanderson and it was one of the best dining experiences of my life. It was my birthday and I went to celebrate by myself. The waitress Sanyogita was my host. She was incredibly friendly. Explained all the items to me...and was very welcoming. She offered me refills on several items and brought me different teas. She checked on me often and made sure I felt great at all times. The waiter (unfortunately I didn't check his name) brought me a birthday treat as well and sang Happy Birthday to me. Sanyogita gave me boxes for all the extra treats that I couldn't finish. It was overall a fantastic experience and made my solo birthday celebration a great one.More

This was totally overhyped and under delivered. The theme only related to the crockery! Food was awful. Mostly sickly sweet cakes of sorts and few sandwiches with obscure fillings. All very strange. Scones ok but cream limited with a crust.. The champagne we paid extra...for was very good and cold. Teas horrible… just do breakfast teas and Earl grey as alternatives. The place is soulless. Not a patch on other venues.Definitely chef needs to improve the menu..this is not value…we left having not eaten much.More

the food was amazing, the only thing to comment is that it would be nice have lower tables inside the restaurant more comfortable than the current ones. Our waiter Nuria was exceptional, she provide a 5 star service, was super kind and the best was...the amazing recommendations that she gave us. I will come back. Enjoyed the dinner a lot.More

The Sanderson hotel is like one of those Instagram vs reality pics, behind the tarted up photos there's no 5* anything to be found. It's dirty, very tired and the atmosphere is flat. The staff were very attentive, I was offered extra sandwiches 3 times...and they were quick to assist if you caught their eye nothing was too much trouble. Its not a polished service, the level of detail isn't there compared to the other 5* hotels. It's as if the training the Sanderson give their wait staff doesn't do the wait staffs effort justice. I understand they normally serve afternoon tea outside(in plastic tents which looked very cheap in person) but it was cold when I visited so I was seated inside. The room felt like a lobby. The food was good and certainly attractive but I wouldn't go back, its cheaper than other afternoon teas but worse value for money.More
