My husband and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our afternoon tea at The Dorchester. We were visiting London for our honeymoon and I insisted that he take me to a tea and The Dorchester did not disappoint.

The hotel itself is lovely to walk through; all of the staff were gracious, accommodating, and very nice; and the food and tea were superb and plentiful! I really feel that I need to emphasize that the staff were all so lovely and nice. That is really something you don't see everywhere and I appreciate it very much.

In terms of food, there were finger sandwiches (all delicious but the seafood was the best), scones with clotted cream and jam, and then mini desserts. They even came around and kept offering us more of everything! We could not eat another bite by the time we left! Everything was very tasty and it was basically a full meal.

We chose whatever their basic tea experience was (no champagne, etc.) but it was entirely delightful and we did not want for anything. It was not an inexpensive visit, but it is certainly comparable in price to other higher end afternoon tea venues. For what we experienced, we both feel it was entirely worth it.

All in all, we HIGHLY recommend taking tea at The Dorchester!

I booked afternoon tea at The Dorchester as a 90th birthday treat for my grandmother. The food, service, staff and whole experience was wonderful.

My grandmother had a wonderful and memorable afternoon with the staff presenting her with a birthday cake and Happy Birthday being played on the piano.

We were both made to feel special. The staff were attentive taking photographs of the occasion for my grandmother. Nothing was to much trouble.

I would recommend The Dorchester for afternoon tea i thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Stayed here just before Christmas 2010 and it was an amazing experience. The room was fantastic and staff were first class. There was nothing I could criticise, and it's not very often I write that in a review! We are planning to make it an annual event so will be returning in a few weeks' time, can't wait! My favourite hotel in the world is Dar al Masyaf in Dubai but this one comes an extremely close second (only the weather lets it down!)

The staff go beyond their way to help you. They put candles in my scrambed egg for my birthday which I thought was very impressionable and something I shall remember. Rooms though I thought slightly outdated, others might call it traditional charm. The beds where comfy and the rooms cleaned flawlessly of couse.The bathrooms are amazing and the bath a great size! It's situated in a great location with taxis allways ready to take you where you need to go, and the oxford street-selfridges it was about £14. The dinners are so-so but the breakfasts are amaaazing! I would recomend this hotel to anyone.
