Best friend booked it in September when I got a new job. Got rescheduled due to lockdown, but finally could go yesterday.
I understand this is quite a ‘unique’ place (don’t go to the loo if you get lost in the house of horrors mirror room).
Afternoon tea - we are both fussy and know what a 5* service and food should be! Especially as it was a treat.
Sandwiches were amazing! Asked for one each extra, cost £5! Usually you get an extra plate for free!
Scones - small and dry. Strawberry jam in a Tiptree jar?! Maybe in Travelodge but not at an allegedly 5* place
Cakes - dry, awful! I don’t remember ever not eating cakes but these were made at least a day in advance. Nothing special either.
Tea - with bearing in mind it was late May, they didn’t have any fruit tea. No hibiscus, rose hip, berries... nothing
Cranberry juice - watered and full of ice, don’t think it has seen a cranberry at all
And my favourite was the service charge, 13.5% by default! For a non existent service.
Just don’t! Especially if you know and want a 5* treat.
