There is nothing quite like spending a lazy Sunday afternoon, over a glass of prosecco, warm tasty scones and a good cup of English Tea!
So that’s exactly what we did when we visited The Grande Royale Hotel in Hyde Park, London. The Edwardian style hotel has an Old English vibe and is the perfect place to spend a chilled weekend. Just a 3 minute walk from Queensway tube station, the hotel is perfectly situated by Hyde Park.
We both love an afternoon tea experience so you could certainly call us a pair of afternoon tea enthusiasts!
The decor is stunning with a vintage yet modern edge. It felt like we were stepping back in time.
Once seated at our table we were provided with a bottle of prosecco which is always a great way to start an afternoon tea date. After a couple of sips, we couldn’t wait to tuck into those sweet and savoury treats.
We can’t recommend this experience enough. There were so many different options from macaroons, scones and clotted cream, chocolate cake and a variety of fresh tasty sandwiches which was washed down nicely with a good cup of English Tea.
The staff were incredibly friendly and always made sure we had everything we needed. So if you fancy a lazy Sunday eating, drinking tea and fizz then afternoon tea at The Grande Royale Hotel in Hyde Park is the place to be.
You can probably tell by now, we are both afternoon tea enthusiasts! There isn’t anything more relaxing then spending your Saturday afternoon sipping on great tea and eating a selection of delicious cakes and finger sandwiches.
If you want a 5 star service and a memorable experience then look no further than The Waldorf Hotel.
Situated in Aldywch, in the heart of London’s theatre capital, the Edwardian style hotel is the perfect place to enjoy a little downtime.
Greeted by a waitress, we were taken through to a magnificent white room where a harpist serenaded guests with soft music in the background.
We began our afternoon tea with a glass of the finest champagne followed by a lemon posset with a raspberry coulis. It tasted incredible, setting the tone for some more tasty treats to come.
The sandwiches included oak smoked salmon and chive infused cream cheese, baked ham and with a hint of Dijon mustard, chicken coronation, egg and watercress and tuna mayonnaise with chilled cucumber. Afternoon tea is not the same without warm scones (straight from the oven) along with clotted cream and the tastiest jam. Not forgetting the homemade delicate pastries, cakes and macaroons.
The Waldorf Hilton has the most gorgeous historic interior and the chandelier above us was extraordinary adding to the regal theme. The decorative pillars add to the stylish design of the hotel which has an old Hollywood glam feel to it.
We can not recommend visiting The Waldorf Hotel enough. We absolutely loved it. We ate and drank while relaxing in one of the most magnificent hotels in London. It does not get much better than that!
