Popped in for a pot of tea and iced tea. Lovely view over the bay. Waited nearly half an hour. Asked very politely if it was possible to check if it was coming and I was told it was very busy. I counted 10 people outside and inside! My tea then arrived almost immediately. Earl grey lovely, but my husband's iced tea tasted and looked like iced water. The replacement was much better and arrived with mint, lemon and an apology.
A disappointing experience for a hotel that is clearly trying to market itself as upmarket.
