Afternoon Tea at the Roslin Beach Hotel Ratings and Reviews
I booked Afternoon Tea for my friends birthday. It was a lovely afternoon and the food was delicious. The staff were lovely and anything you can't eat they box up for you to take home. I think it is a lovely treat and is a great gift for someone. Definitely worth the money will be coming back for afternoon tea again.
Afternoon tea has never disappointed, I've been there on several occasions. Food is delicious, tea was plentiful and the table was decorated with balloons and sparkles as it was my birthday (which I was not expecting). Staff were lovely, I even took my balloons home!
Wonderful sandwiches, scones and cakes and great to have unlimited tea or coffee. Would definitely go back again especially for a special occasion, Staff were extremely attentive and we were made to feel very special. Nice also to be put in a room with a view of the sea even though it was a cloudy day.
Had afternoon tea for my Mums birthday. Staff very friendly and attentive. Plenty of food and all very nice. Endless supply of tea or coffee. Had a table by the window so lovely view of the sea.
There was so much food that what we were unable to eat the staff wrapped up the leftovers for us to take home.
A while back I booked an afternoon tea for 2 for my mums birthday. The tea menu was loverly! Not a thing we didn't like & made us full & was always being topped up with tea, which I would say brilliant value for money. The hotel is kept up to a great standard from where we were & all staff we came across we're very well presented & welcoming. We were sitting inside, with a beautiful view. And as it was mums birthday, we had a star balloon on the table (which I hadn't even requested!) which was a great touch! Will be coming again!
A group of us met for a charity planning meeting and took in afternoon tea. It was superb. The only thing we weren't too sure about were the savoury bagels, they were not as delicious as the other savoury items. We loved the pulled pork ones!
There was too much to eat but we asked for a box to take away to donate to our deserted husbands. This was given with a smile. The service is superb. I'd certainly recommend the experience.
Every year in November my husband and I come to do our Christmas Shopping in Southend and we stay at the Roslin for the weekend. We have been coming for 17 years so have seen a huge transformation. It was the first time that I came for afternoon tea and it was fabulous it was for my sister's 70th Birthday and she thoroughly enjoyed it and I would recommend to family and friends. Thank you for a lovely afternoon. Pam
Afternoon tea at the Roslin has to be experienced. Ample food, from sandwiches through scones and into cakes, far too much to eat (luckily they give you anything left over to take away). Endless tea and coffee too - and you can pay a bit more to add something bubbly.
We went for our wedding anniversary and would certainly go again. Great experience.
3 of us had afternoon tea for a special birthday. Unfortunately we had to call ahead as we were stuck in traffic and arrived 30 minutes late. However, none of this made any difference to our welcome and service. The choice and amount of food was amazing. Unfortunately none of us could polish off the lot. A great choice and highly recommended.
We went to the Roslin Hotel for my friends birthday. The staff were very welcoming and even brought a plate with three separate little cakes and happy birthday iced on the plate - it made her day. We're happy to change the sandwich selection as my friend did not like eggs. Thank you for making her feel special
We had a lovely time at the Roslin Beach Hotel last week. I took my mum there for afternoon tea for her birthday. The food was all delicious, the drinks were lovely too and the service was wonderful. We were treated very well and the room that we had the tea in was beautiful, with lovely wide windows which we could see the sea through.
