    The food tasted lovely however there was too much cream, cream on all the cakes and the jar with cream in was bland, I would have prefer an extra sandwich and one less cake.

    The restaurant is lovely but the food was not great. Only three small sandwiches for afternoon tea. Egg mayonnaise, ham and tomato and smoked salmon. Extraordinary unimaginative. There was no choice of tea - I have had a lot of afternoon teas and never before have I just been served bog standard, over stewed tea with no choice. The scones were good although no clue what they did to the jam as they t was very weird although not unpleasant. The cakes were over sweet and clumsy. All in all it was really disappointing.

    The food looked lovely and the sandwiches were tasty. The scones were very nice but the cakes were very dry and unfortunately there was a hair in the mousse which ruined my daughter’s experience. The staff were very friendly however and the room was set out nicely. I wouldn’t go back I have had much better elsewhere.

    Food great, staff absolutely lovely was made to feel very special and most importantly we wasn't rushed. Loved it so much we stayed for an extra gin. Would recommend to anyone visiting Bournemouth,in fact my friend who was with us booked an over night stay for her son, and I would use the hotel if I do return to Bournemouth.

    I haven’t seen my friend since March. So for a bit off a treat we had afternoon at this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised, how friendly every one was. Exceptionally clean. The food was lovely and fresh. I would recommend to family and friends. Next time we are down we will be coming back.
