We had a lovely afternoon at the Corinthia Hotel but regrettably I would have to say that the sandwiches and cakes were average.
On the plus side the staff were very attentive the majority of the time apart from one male waiter who ignored us completely all the time. The girls were excellent.
Overall we had a lovely time due to the surroundings but unfortunately I was not highly impressed with the sandwiches or cakes.

The cakes and pastries were very average. The choice was disappointing and the flavours did not meet expectations at all. However, the scones and jam were excellent and the sandwiches were ok. Being able to top up as much as we wanted was generous.

Fabulous food and the staff were brilliant, the pianist was also an extra special touch. The measure of good afternoon tea are the scones, and they were delicious!

The service from every member of staff was truly outstanding and I would not hesitate to recommend your hotel. I am already organising a further visit for champagne afternoon tea with my niece as I feel this hotel is the most exceptional in London.

Had a wonderful time celebrating my sister's birthday. The attentive and kind staff brought her an extra little cake with happy birthday written on the plate which was a lovely little flourish, and they were very accomodating about dietary requirements and our little toddler. The salmon and beef sandwiches were especially good and the scones were a delight! The pear and cinnamon eclair and chocolate mousse were excellent. Would very much recommend- lovely food and service and a beautiful setting for a special occasion!

From the moment we arrived we were looked after extremely well. The hotel has to be one of my favourite London hotels. The staff were attentive but without fussing. The tea was beautifully presented and delicious. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff. A very enjoyable afternoon and one that I would very much love to repeat.

Beautiful dining area and wonderful staff. We came for the valentines special and I received a lovely rose. Compared to other places I’ve been to, some of the sandwiches could have had a bit more filling and the bread was a bit dry for a couple of them. However the egg truffle sandwich was to die for! Scones were perfect and pastries were delicious.

Overall an excellent afternoon and very special.

We booked the Valentine's Afternoon tea for the 14/2/20 and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. The service was impeccable and all the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a good time. The tea and food were first class and asking for extra was no issue at all. One of the Managers also went out of their way to take us on a tour of the hotels other amenities.

The beautiful elegant Corinthia hotel is a stunning place to have afternoon tea. A beautiful selection of pastries and sandwiches, attentive kind staff and lovely music being played in the background by a pianist. The staff brought out a small cake with a candle for my parties birthday, a lovely touch. Thank you and we shall be back!

Violettas attention was excellent her colleagues were under par in comparison . Just little things , didn’t explain flavours of jam , didn’t ask if another drink was required , etc . sandwich selection good but not the freshest. The second offering much fresher. Loved the room , will come back !

The food and setting were good but the service was poor. It felt chaotic, we waited a long time to be served and for items to arise when we had ordered them. We were then presented with the bill and told our time was up in 15 mins which would have been fine had the staff not disappeared and there been no one to take our money so we could release our table! For the money better service was expected.

Food was lovely and staff very nice. Had a small issue with the table they gave us being too low and this being a issue due to back problems but they rearranged things and gave us another table. Very nice would recommend.

Visiting London for our 50 th wedding anniversary and our daughter who works in the city suggested this venue.
The staff were very attentive and moved us to a table in the middle under the stunning chandelier . Every thing was magic

We had an outstanding afternoon tea at the Corinthia this week. I’m a seasoned afternoon tea tester in London and this is one I would recommend going back to. The afternoon was made by Viola our waiter who was absolutely wonderful.

The best afternoon tea ever. Fresh sandwiches (loved the beef), great cakes and scones. Extras if we wanted them (we were so full afterwards!). Generous glass of champagne. Best of all the ambience, the China, the service, pianist playing softly in the background- combined to make a perfect afternoon. Will definitely be back

Excellent service. Good food. Professional pianist. It was my birthday and the server surprised me with a slice of chocolate birthday cake. It was so sweet of him. Good ambience. It was a 2 hours afternoon tea session with unlimited sandwiches, scones and desserts, of course, tea. I couldn't finish my desserts and the server packed it up for me to take out. I had a wonderful memorable birthday. It was worth the expense.

It was our first afternoon tea experience and it was a wonderful one. The staff were very kind and walked us through what to expect. The finger sandwiches were yummy and the tea was brewed well. We loved the dessert selection and were able to take home a good amount that we couldn't finish. If you're looking for a place to relax and enjoy tea, this is a great option!

We have tried several Tea services around London and The Corinthia Gad the best service by far. The only disappoint we had was that they do not let you brew your own tea - the tea you get on the pot has already been brewed and the leafs have been removed. I under why they do this, but I like my tea on the stronger side and mine was a bit weak.

That being said I can’t say enough about our wait staff, so very friendly and personable. I would bring my friends to the Corinthia over any other Afternoon Tea (including the Savoy!).

First visit to The Corinthia, first impressions of the hotel was how lovely the hotel is. Warm welcome on arrival. Dietary notes taken on board, thank you. Sandwiches were lovely & the cakes were delicious. I loved the marshmallows. We was left very disappointed when we was told after 1hr 30mins we would need to vacate. We had only eaten a few cakes, the sandwiches should of come out much quicker rather than waiting nearly 25minutes for them to come out. We knew we had a time slot there, but you really need to get the sandwiches out much quicker, so that you don’t feel extremely rushed eating the cakes. We did leave the hotel feeling rushed & disappointed we couldn’t finish our cakes. I must say Kevin the pianist is a great asset to the hotel.

My partner and I made a reservation for Afternoon Tea at the Corinithia during our short stay in London. It was our first time partaking in this tradition and we enjoyed the service so much. It will be a memory we have for a lifetime. The ambiance of the hotel made us feel relaxed and while sophisticated the staff were very warm and welcoming. Every detail was considered and the presentation was beautiful. Of course, every bite was also delicious and our tea was perfect. Thank you for an exceptional experience!
