We were very well looked after which must have been very tricky as we were such a big group! Fab food and catered for a range of dietary requirements with no problems. Thank you very much!

3rd time we’ve been, not as good this time. Preferred sitting in conservatory. Service not good hence didn’t pay service charge. Plate covered in pate , had to ask gir clean one for scones & a knife- not given with plate. Never offered top up of coffee or tea. Think it’s gone downhill. Won’t be back, get better afternoon tea in Hereford. Preferred service and drink in comfy bar afterwards.

We normally are situated in the conservatory, however we were sat inside , in a close area . The waitresses I found weren’t friendly , we asked for water and it seemed like an effort, “ oh you want water as well” ... The presentation wasn’t up to the normal standard I would expect , the savouries were on a plate , they were small savouries so looked very out of place, on such a large plate.

Loved afternoon tea! Staff were very attentive and the food was excellent. And when I was stuffed and couldn't eat anymore they gave me a little box to take cake home!! Loved it and will most definitely be back!

After a few problems with the booking, the afternoon tea itself was fantastic. The service was second to none. The food was superb and was just the right amount. Excellent value for money and we will definitely be back.

I enjoyed everything about our afternoon tea. The free glass of bubbles was a very nice touch. People always love a freebie. The savoury selection was a lovely start to an amazing tea. There wasn’t anything I could have faulted. The staff were very friendly. Thank you bx

We were advised on the website to arrive half an hour before afternoon tea to relax and enjoy the atmosphere which we did. However, that pushed us beyond the free 3 hour parking. As we'd spent in excess of £60 By the time we paid for tea and the drinks in the extra half hour it felt wrong to have to pay £6 for parking because "you" suggested arriving early.

I have been here before a few years ago which I thought food was a lot better. My salmon finger the cucumber was very soggy an not crunchy at all. There was a conference in the main part and it was very busy & noisy.

Very very disappointed with the service. People that arrived 10 minutes after us were served 10 mins before we were. When my Tea did arrive we had to ask for a jug of milk. Very slow service between the starters to when the beautiful plates of cakes arrived. We then had to wait a considerable amount of time trying to catch the eye of our waitress to ask for a box to put the leftover cakes into so we could take them away. For a five star establishment charging a relatively high price we were left feeling very let down by the whole experience.

Not such good value or atmosphere as evening meal and breakfast. Too many cakes and sandwiches. Better to charge less and provide less.

We’ve had much nicer afternoon teas elsewhere for cheaper. There wasn’t any atmosphere, being just 2 tables occupied in the whole restaurant. The staff, however, were lovely and gave excellent service. There was a confusion at the end over payment, I had already paid over the phone as it was an anniversary gift for my husband. The lady chasing after us as we left, waving the receipt at us wasn’t very discreet. Next time we’d probably chose the Angel in Abergavenny or somewhere else local with nicer food and a better atmosphere.

The food was excellent, it catered for both vegetarian and gluten free and the choice and presentation were wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon which was for a hen party and would definitely recommend it.

A pleasant afternoon, although atmosphere was poor at the start, no music and no one else there! We had to physically remove chairs from our table which was set up for 10 and was cramped - there were 6 of us booked. Fortunately the silence was relieved when a few groups arrived. Some staff were really attentive, others were too busy to help, which meant we had to go and get coffee refills ourself. Coffee was like warm, although when the staff changed over the service improved loads and we got hot coffee, an apology, and offered more teas, finally able to relax! Everyone had a lovely time but the staff need a bit more training on how to make guests feel important to them.

We booked the afternoon tea via the website. We purposely did not book afternoon tea at the Manor House but were very disappointed to be told when we went to the restaurant desk that it was being served in the Manor House and not the Resort Hotel. Apparently, the reason for this was because Sunday Lunch was being served in the Conservatory. Another couple and a group of three ladies were also told they would need to go to the Manor House. Transport was provided there and back but we felt rushed as we would now be late for our 2.30 booking. The tea itself was very nice although the scones came with whipped cream and not clotted cream as advertised. The white peony tea was very strong for a white tea. If Sunday Afternon Tea is not served in the Resort Hotel, I feel this should be explicit on the booking website. We would have booked for the Saturday instead. All in all, disappointed. A five star hotel ?
