    Lovely afternoon tea overall - scones and patisserie/sweet items were particularly well presented. Sandwiches were a little bland and basic in terms of fillings - would benefit from an upgrade in ingredients. Service was pleasant - the waitress explained the menu and brought a refill of tea but I think once she then went off duty no one else really bothered to check up on drinks. It was extremely quiet - we were the only people having tea and there were just a couple of other visitors having drinks so the atmosphere was not great which is a real shame. Given the quality of the afternoon tea I really think it would be worth advertising more as this could be a really vibrant welcoming venue in the town. Easy parking, great views and good quality tea.

    Although very quiet, we waited 20 minutes for someone to take our drinks order. We eventually tried ordering at the bar and was advised someone would be ‘right with us’. After another ten minutes of waiting and being late for a restaurant booking we simply left. NOT A GREAT START TO BIRTHDAY DRINKS ! …. Thanks !! I wonder how you cope on busier evenings or even at half capacity ?.

    Waited 35 minutes before anyone came over after telling us to have a seat 45 minutes after we arrived finally got a pot of tea We were then offered a complimentary glass of Prosecco as an apology but was charged for it when paying bill took 3 attempts for the girl to refund it due to card machine issues Food was nice but found the staff very unattentive never came over to offer more tea or coffee I took my friend for a birthday treat but was very disappointed a lot of money spent on a very unsatisfactory experience Wouldn’t recommend this to anyone apart from the nice setting the whole experience was great disappointment

    The whole place lacked any kind of atmosphere - no staff serving drinks, no music and no real ambiance. We were there late afternoon so probably not the best time but still disappointing. Drinks were ok but nothing exceptional, didn’t try any food and left after 2 drinks. Probably best going evening rather than afternoon for a drink here.

    Booked to eat lunch in sky bar! Perhaps I did read the website correctly but was situ could only have cream tea! Subsequently we went to downstairs’ restaurant, which wasn’t why I went to Hiltons! Had to take drinks in lift! We were the only people in the restaurant and had to wait over 5 mins fir the peppercorn sauce we ordered by which time my girlfriend had eaten a substantial part of her steak! There was no sense of urgency! At one point I was going to retrieve our meals from servery !

    I booked this as a treat for my daughter's 19th birthday, she's a student so I drove down for it. I was a bit concerned as thete were some mixed reviews but then there are always people who love to moan! BUT, I didn't need to worry at all. From the moment we arrived we had excellent service. Professional, polite, friendly. We were given complimentary glasses of prosecco which was a lovely token and made it that more special. The afternoon tea was perfect. Gorgeous sandwiches and enough cakes and scones to take a doggy bag away. We also had a cocktail each which was lovely. I'd seen a couple of complaints about the views- yes you can see rooftops but it's in the middle of a city and it was so high up you can see the view of all the buildngs plus we could very definitely see the sea and cliffs! You could go outside if wanted, we didn't as cold but others did to see the views and take photos. There were a group of young women in there doing a cocktail making class which looked fun. It was a beautiful sunny day and a perfect ambience for my daughter's special treat. We were made to feel special and welcome. Toilets were clean. The whole place looked beautiful with tasteful decor. If I lived there I'd be visiting a lot with my friends!! Thank you to all. It was fab!

    I enjoyed the experience, the food was fine, the service from the female staff was exemplary. However there were guys sorting out the stage etc ready for that evening I'm presuming. Little bit off putting. The male staff (3 of them) seemed to be hiding behind a pillar in the bar area whilst the female staff did most of the work. Those were my honest observations.

    When we arrived there did not appear to be a reserved table. Once we were shown to our table they failed to take our drinks order. They did wave the service fee as we virtually served ourselves!! The bar was exceptionally noisey, with one very lively group. We ended up moving outside and only stayed for 1 drink. Really disappointing, I had been before and had a lovely time at my previous visit. Need to consider all of their guests and not just the ones in large groups.

    Very disappointed. Table only set for 2, not 3. Tea came out without a cup. First coffee was only like warm so asked for the next to be hot but it wasn't. Some of the scones were harder than shortbread and the others were not fresh. Cake stands have seen better days. Furniture looks tired. No atmosphere, staff were very nice but too busy to give good service. I hate complaining but it was so bad I had to. I'd taken my auntie to cheer her up because she's recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. It was not the experience I'd expected from the Hilton. I've had many afternoon teas over the years and this was the worst by far!! Would definitely advise people to go elsewhere.

    We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to hear that you found our decor outdated. Regarding the comment, 'Looks like a hub for the lower echelons of society,' we find it unnecessarily harsh, lacking constructive feedback, and inconsistent with the reality of our diverse customer base. We welcome hundreds of couples, groups, families, and guests of various ages, cultures, and backgrounds who share their positive experiences with us. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    We were a little disappointed with the cost of the bill. We were told we had a complimentary first drink of Prosecco. But upon payment it seems we were charged. We were a group of six and having received the complimentary drinks we then went on to order 5 cocktails and another glass of Prosecco. The total cost, I believe was something in the region of £134. I know the cocktails were £13.50 each and then there was the extra Prosecco, but the final cost seemed a little out of the ordinary. It seemed we were charged for the first drinks which we were told were complimentary. We would not have had these if they were not complimentary. We didn’t say anything at the time it was later when we sat down that we had thought about the cost.

    The quality of the food was not that good, especially considering it was the hilton, then also a most restarauts or companies of their caliber would do something when you mention in advance its for a birthday, they did not even bring even a simple plate with some text and chocolate. Experiences in lodon was way better, better food and better service and way very well appreciated for when they did something small for some ones birthday.

    Most of the cakes tasted stale and dry except the chocolate bomb which was lovely. Scones were stale and dry. Tea was nice but eating staff were slow to check if we needed more tea, sadly they did not replenish the milk.

    I had family from abroad wanting to experience the Afternoon Tea. Level8 wasn't our first option but we ended up going there because most places in the area that offer the afternoon tea close at 4.00. I am so glad we went there!!! the service was exceptional, we were welcomed by Otto and he was amazing, he offered us a table with the best view and thoroughly explained the menu options to us. The quality of the sandwiches, scones and treats it's out of this world and they offer unlimited Tea, hot or cold coffees. The rest of the staff was friendly and attentive. I 100% recommend this place for the afternoon tea, we are even planning to go back soon as we will have more visitors next month.

    Third time I have eaten here this year and it’s still lovely. The selection of cakes is different to most places and the portion sizes are generous. It’s never very busy which is good and the view is amazing. Highly recommended
