Location: Age: 45-54 Bought For Mum Occasion: Christmas
No need to book just turned up at 1.35pm on the Sunday, in the lift and on our way five minutes later. Friendly staff, clean environment, security checks on bags. Viewing from floor 69 and 72, small champagne bar on 69 and another small bar on 72, take away coffee was £3.40 and was very nice. No seating in these areas but the staff did fetch a fold away chair for an elderly gent. We had great weather too so view went on and on, spent about 45 mins then had a mooch in the small shop. You must look at the toilets on the 69 floor...they have floor to ceiling glass so you can enjoy the view in there too lol.

It was OK

Location: Age: 45-54 Occasion: Christmas
Lovely venue, arrived 20 minutes early and they asked us to get a drink from the bar and come back at 1.30 for our actual booking time (the restaurant was empty) when we came back we were shown a very nice seat and ordered our tea and then give an appetiser which was a sweet creme brulee and very nice. We then waited for nearly 45 minutes and then asked a waiter what was happening, he said sorry for the delay but you requested no fish (we did for 2 people only at time of booking, there was 4 of us) the afternoon tea arrived 10 minutes later with no fish for the 4 of us and had butter in the sandwiches, one of our party does not eat butter. By this time we were very hungry so just ate what we had and the non butter person in our group did not have any savoury. All in all an OK experience but could have been perfect with some communication from the waiting staff.

Wonderful afternoon tea. Nice atmosphere. Sandwiches were lovely and had a good selection of vegetarian as well. Scones with clotted cream and jam were good. Selection of cakes lovely and macaroons were excellent. Good selection of tea. The chocolate tea was lovely and different and well worth a try. Service was excellent . Overall very good and would go again. Well worth the price??

Sadly i wasn't impressed the surroundings were very uninspiring. Sandwiches were quite dry - didn't need the huge scones but a couple more fresh sandwiches would have been nice . Good point they were very careful not to contaminate all sandwiches with smoked salmon as one of us had an alergy to salmon. Waiters were very polite and courteous.

Hi Caroline, thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are delighted to hear the staff were polite and courteous, however apoligise on behalf of the restaurant for the lack of fresh sandwiches received. I have passed on your comments to our account manager and supplier to investigate into and make future improvements.

The view of London and beyond was sensational. It was a great help for many of the buildings to be identified around the viewing platform

Location: Age: 55-64 Bought For Dad Occasion: Christmas
A lovely experience to receive as a gift from my parents. The staff at the Waldorf were friendly from the Doorman, Jason, to the waitress,Mary, which makes one feel comfortable. Made sure we went on a Friday as I wanted to hear the Harpist play, this was so good and relaxing. Only negative point for me was far too many cakes for two. I would have preferred more sandwiches than sweet stuff even though I like cakes. We were offered the opportunity of having another sandwich which I readily took, thank you.

Hotel nice, felt it did lack atmosphere. Afternoon tea was ok, but have had better ones. I think they seem to be running it on a budget, no additional hot water given for tea. No comparison to the Ritz. Would not go again and would not recommend it to friends.
