Lovely afternoon with beautiful surroundings
Unfortunately, we were in a room that was experiencing noise disruption due to the current refurbishment work that is going on in the hotel. Although we changed rooms the noise still continued for sometime. We should have been warned about this dusruption when considering making the reservation.
The Peacock Room was the perfect setting for afternoon tea overlooking the amazing grounds
The quality of food let down the whole experience unfortunately
Quite overpriced for what we had. No offer of extra tea which other tables had.
Probably the most misleading website and description of facilities I have ever come across in the UK. Absolutely shocked on arrival that the decrepit rooms in the older part of the hotel that are in the process of being refurbished are still being sold. The ‘standard’ double was in s terrible state with paint and wallpaper peeling off, not even bed side tables or Fridge. It was a bad 3 star standard room. And the ‘spa’ is not a spa. It is absolutely awful. There’s no actual private changing facilities at all, showers absolutely disgusting, not working properly, nothing was clean or in decent condition. The beauty treatment area was full of flies that kept landing on me whilst having a manicure. The prices are competitive until you realise that the facilities haven’t been touched for 30 years. And many workmen stood outside doors of the tiny swimming pool just openly staring at the women (with their children) in the pool. You should just close the leisure facilities and upgrade it all in one go rather than marketing it as part of a nice hotel’s facilities. It’s embarrassing.
Lovely afternoon tea staff very attentive and helpful
had a most enjoyable afternoon tea. staff very attentive and couldn't fault the visit.
We had an afternoon tea. Service was excellent. Tea was good but a little pricey at £25. Plenty of cakes though
The dining room is a beautiful venue although the waiting staff could do with a little more training.
lovely service for our afternoon tea. very tasty and well worth it!
Great food, fantastic ingrediants. Great selection too. Well worth paying extra for the full menu. Breakfast was pricey for one cup of tea though £15!! Hubby wasnt hungry but had to stay at table for children.
Lovely afternoon tea, good food!
A poorly selected (butchered) peice of belly pork which was then undercooked and served spoiled the main course. A replacement course was offered, but at that point I had eaten most of my plate and did not want another main. Free drink was offered, but I had no need of more alchohol. The desert, a creme brulee was served with whipped cream and caramel sause. Why. The caramel is already on the brulee. Serving whipped cream is like serving chips with mashed potato. Not the best meal I have ever eaten. Unlikely to recommend the restaurant to anyone I like.
AFTERNOON TEA WITH A GLASS OF CHANPAGNE Only two thin sandwiches of each type provided despite paying £31 each (there were 2 of us) For this price I expected more and bigger sandwiches. There was no choice of tea, normally afternoon tea a choice of teas is offered.
The afternoon tea was ok but not worth £25 per person.
I was disappointed with the cups/saucers/ cake stand etc, they were plain cheap looking white ones. It would of looked a lot nicer with the vintage style. The tea also was not loose leaf which I prefer when having afternoon tea
We had a lovely stay at Pendley, friendly staff, lovely food and a very nice refurbished room!
We were really disappointed to find the Peacock Lounge stiflingly hot, with a fan making a loud noise, and workmen working outside on the windows: it was completely devoid of any atmosphere, and the heat made it impossible to spend any time in the room. We were lucky to find Brigitta (?) in the bar, who showed us through to the private lounge beyond, which was wonderful. She was incredibly helpful and accommodating, turning a potential disaster into a very pleasant experience. The three-star review for 'atmosphere' is a compromise between the Peacock Lounge (which we'd have rated as one-star) and the private lounge in which we ended up, which deserved a higher rating. However, whilst we acknowledged that the afternoon tea was delicious, having tried a number of similar teas in other establishments, we all felt that it represented very poor value for money and would certainly not return. However, we cannot compliment Brigitta enough on her professionalism and service, so please do pass on our thanks to her.
This booking was given to us as a present, so we have no idea of the cost! As this 'field' is required, we have just guessed!!
My wife and I certainly enjoyed our stay for our wedding anniversary. A lovely hotel with great facilities and extensive gardens to walk round
Not the best afternoon tea, very basic and sandwiches were pre made and put in a fridge. Couldn’t fault the waitress but there was a wedding this day so it didn’t feel right to be there. Wasn’t value for money I’m afraid
My husband and I came to Pendley Manor for Afternoon Tea on Sunday 1st July. I have previously visited Pendley Manor for Afternoon Tea so I know the standard that you aim for. Our visit on the occasion of 1st July, however, was very disappointing. We booked in for the Champagne Afternoon Tea but the service we encountered was very poor. The waitress was rude and although we were served champagne we were not served with any tea even though we reminded the waitress twice. When I went to pay the bill I was charged for 6 glasses of champagne but we only had 2 glasses and again encountered rudeness when I pointed out that the bill was incorrect. This event was a Father’s Day present for my husband and it turned out to be a very disappointing occasion.
