I went to the Oyster Box Hotel for high tea with my granny and a friend (we were stayin at the Beverely Hills, just next door to the Oyster Box). It was raining when we arrived and one of the hotel workers promptly came with umbrellas to fetch us from the car. We went to the friendly receptionist who showed us where our high tea would be. We had hardly sat down and a waitress came to assist us. The service was first class, the high tea first class and everything was perfect. The waitress even informed us 20 minutes before high tea was supposed to end in case we still wanted something. On our way out we decided to ask if they could show us one of the rooms, they obliged and we were taken to one of the suites. I was amazed , the decor was perfect, everything about that suite was 5 star and beyond. I will definitely try and stay here next time.
