My husband and I were on a bit of a nostalgic afternoon in Westminster and thought a trip to the Royal Horseguards Hotel for afternoon tea would be a great treat. As I used to work for the then Ops Manager over 10 years ago, I was looking forward to seeing the refurbishments made to the hotel. I was overwhelmed by the interior changes and swept away by the beautiful restoration and refurnishing. The Tea itself was lovely, we took a glass of champagne to start it off before the tea and goodies arrived. The waitress was lovely, apologising for the long wait to order (she was running to and from the restaurant to the lounge). Unfortunately this is one of the things about the "Old Horseguards" which jumped immediately to mind. Not enough staff to service clients, it was a bit disappointing to see that this is still the case. Unfortunately there were other patrons who were looking around for service too. Hopefully they can sort this out as it was definitely a mar on the experience. All in all though a delightful few hours and the waitress did say if we needed anymore of anything just to ask. So glad we went.
