We went for the afternoon tea with friends and family to celebrate my wives 60th birthday. The setting, views, decor and service was wonderful. Sandwiches and cakes were delightful. When booking a party we have to pay a deposit. Which is fine. However the team must know this arrangement and then deduct this from the bill. In my case it... More

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea at this hotel , the food was good, the tea delicious and the service good. Unfortunately the rest of the stay was not as good as the afternoon tea.

We attended in a party of 7 for my mother's 75th Birthday on the 5th of November 2016. Unfortunately we found the sandwiches were very dry and there were really not enough of them for 7 people. We requested more tea and had to ask again after waiting nearly 45 minutes we were told they did not have enough tea... More

Afternoon Tea, it was so relaxed in beautiful surroundings. The cakes were amazing & the scones with jam & cream the best ever. Thanks to our lovely daughters for such a great afternoon treat

From booking to having the food/drinks it was an excellent experience. We were a party of 8 plus a young child for which a high chair was provided without any fuss. The pastries and drinks were all good and provided in a relaxed and courteous manner. The only disappointing thing was the weather which meant that we could not enjoy... More

The Afternoon Tea was good and we opted for a bottle of the Billecart Salmon champagne instead of the complimentary champagne. It was disappointing that when we booked the visit as it was our 1st visit back since we were married there in 2006. It was to have a leisurely walk around the grounds/gardens and to take some photos. Basically... More

Had afternoon tea here today which was really enjoyed. The waitresses were lovely and very professional. We had a few different girls visit us and were all very kind. I think the sandwich selection is spot on, great selection of fillings and bread. Scones, excellent! Warm and a good portion size. Cakes all good and tasty too. Presentation is memorable... More

My daughter and I were hoping for a quality experience but were rather disappointed. The staff appeared unprofessional and in general not particularly welcoming or helpful. There did not seem to be someone who was overall in charg and we had a series of slightly sullen or uninterested staff serving us. We were not asked if we would like a... More

Had a set Sunday lunch at 6 pm! Excellent service and food. Good choice of meals perfectly cooked and presented. Fairly pricey but worth it for the ambiance, food quality and service.

I booked afternoon tea at the 5* Luton Hoo Hotel as a birthday treat for my partner.We passed through the gates onto the driveway of the grounds and these were very impressive. On arrival we were greeted by the doorman who directed us to the lounge. Unfortunately from that point things very quickly went downhill. We stood at the entrance... More
