After searching the web for afternoon tea , we decided on the cafe royal as somewhere we have not visited before. The tea was booked for 5pm as a pre theatre treat. On arrival was not overly impressed with the reception areas of the hotel, and found the entrance on air street ordinary for a five star hotel. The doormen and staff were very polite and friendly when we inquired on where to go for the tea. The tea was in the Oscar Wilde room , which is very grand and decorated in rococo style. We were politely shown to our table , and was also very pleased to see and hear the pianist which added to the occasion. The waiters and waitress were very good, could not fault the service. As for the tea , fantastic assortment of sandwich's and scones and preserves and pastries. All sorts of teas for every taste! The tea was refilled when we wanted, so were the sandwich's.
Would say we really enjoyed our afternoon tea , and could not fault the quality and service that was shown to us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Combining architectural heritage with contemporary design, Cafe Royal has been reincarnated as a luxury hotel in the heart of London's West End with the elegance of Mayfair to the west and the creativity of Soho to the east. Grand historic areas have been sensitively restored while 160 guestrooms, including 49 suites and six signature suites have been created in a contemporary yet refined style. Our guestrooms start from approximately 35 sq m / 377 sq ft to 212 sq m / 2,281sq ft with every room presenting itself as a suite. Continuing its celebrated legacy, Hotel Cafe Royal offers a selection of restaurants and bars for guests to enjoy. At the heart of the hotel, the Ten Room offers British informal dining all-day, while the Green Bar is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a cocktail. Restored to revive the ornate Louis XVI decor and detailing, the iconic Oscar Wilde Bar (formerly the legendary Grill Room, originally established in 1865), is now the place to enjoy Champagne, cocktails and a light menu of British dishes and live entertainment on select evenings. The Cafe, on Regent Street, revives the European tradition of cafe culture. To complete the experience, the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre is an urban retreat in the centre of the capital spanning over 1,200 sq m / 13,000 sq ft featuring a large lap pool, sauna and Hammam/steam room and offering a range of signature treatments.
