“Amazing!”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

My Husband treated me to a surprise afternoon tea at The Dorchester. We had the most amazing time. The food was beautiful and you can eat & drink as little or as much as you can manage. The scones were so lovely and warm that we ate a few more... It would have been rude not to finish off the Cornish clotted cream and home made preserves. The staff made you feel so welcome and nothing was too much for them. Wonderful experience!

As a surprise for my mums birthday booked afternoon tea for the family. Amazing surroundings, staff, music and food. An endless supply of sandwiches, tea and cakes plus a surprise little birthday cake and candle for the birthday girl. You can not fault the quality. I would strongly recommend as a treat.

One of the best hotels in the world, with a convenient and historically significant setting on Park Lane. The hotel's Chinese restaurant is also impeccable.
