We were very pleased with our afternoon tea, the surroundings and the service. The only hing that let it down, in our opinion, was the small amount of cream provided with the scones. The small pot provided was more suited to one person rather than two.

We booked afternoon tea for four as a celebration for our friends who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, I couldn’t fault our visit in any way, the food was delicious and the staff and service was first class. Thank you very much for making it special for us all.

Excellent afternoon tea that gets better each time we come. Excellent vegan and vegetarian options and options such as decaf tea. Really good value for money and never felt rushed or hurried.

My Granddaughter and myself enjoyed a pleasant 'Afternoon Tea' in lovely surroundings, having a view of the sea made it a pleasant place to sit. The Scones were lovely, the Sandwiches good, the Cakes although being very attractive we would have preferred less Chocolate if it wasn't in the cakes it was used to coat the cake. We did however enjoy our visit, my Granddaughter did suggest perhaps a small wrap could be added to the Sandwich selection.

Such a brilliant afternoon tea. There were so many parts that were just flawless, even down to the smallest details. I had been wanting to come to the Roslin Beach for a long time, so decided to book afternoon tea for my friends birthday. As soon as a we arrived we were bought straight in and sat down, our server knew exactly who we were and confirmed that we were having the sparkling afternoon tea and one of us was gluten and dairy free (a little touch that was lovely). We were then offered the choice of 2 champagnes, and our tea, cakes and sandwiches were brought over. All the staff were lovely, so welcoming and helpful. Such a beautiful setting, we were sat with an amazing view of the seafront. Could not fault the experience, cannot wait to come back.

I was really looking forward to afternoon tea with my mother and daughter and from all the good reviews from colleagues and friends I was expecting high expectations of the place. Firstly although this is not something the hotel can improve on the car park is incredibly small and ended up having to park on the roads which was fine however from March-October there are restrictions around the hotel. Upon waiting for my mother to arrive I witnessed a member of staff placing a black sack of what I was told by the staff member who placed it there later was ice in front of the hotel entrance doors which prevented my mother who is disabled from entering the hotel. Another guest who was staying at the hotel moved the sack as I struggled to move it due to how heavy it was. Afternoon tea was okay, however if you’re offered the option of having your coat placed in the cloak room I’d advise against it as when I went to pick my coat up at the end of the stay my I witnessed the cloaks man picking my coat up from the floor which I was not happy about especially as I witnessed the cloaks man placing the people in front of me wet umbrellas above my coat. I won’t be rushing to book another experience at the Roslin anytime soon very disappointed with my visit.

We have been regular customers for the afternoon tea (5 or 6 times a year) as our 85 year old parents cannot eat a main meal these days. Very disappointed to be told this time "that you may order extra sandwiches but you may be charged". A very disappointing, money making step back for the Roslin.

We had a lovely time & the food was lovely, my only criticism would be the fact that a gratuity fee had been added to our bill & as there were only 5 of us I feel this was unnecessary as I prefer to leave a tip of my choosing so I was disappointed by this.

I just wanted more sandwiches. Asked for extra for the kids and they were happy to bring them out 4 extra nutella. Then asked if they could have 2 ham for the kids. They said no more though as we'd had extras so didn't like to ask for us adults. I really wanted more sarnies myself. Nevermind, very lovely otherwise.
