I can highly recommend the afternoon tea at the Roslin Beach Hotel. From the minute we arrived we were warmly welcomed and felt special during our time there. The afternoon tea was for my sister's 70 birthday with her friends and we were all impressed by the service and the food which was excellent.

Very cramped No atmosphere Very disappointed as this was a birthday gift. Difficult to get the attention of any waitress to get a second pot of tea Parking is always tricky at the Roslin but it was horrendous on Friday! The car oark was full of transit vans, I know there is work going on but it’s just not good enough! They should have made some other arrangements for temporary parking!. I’ve been to the Roslin so many times,I’ve even had my own special events at the hotel. So it saddens me to have had such a unhappy time there.

I was given a voucher for my birthday and came for afternoon tea. It was, as usual... fabulous. We had ulterior motive for coming along - we were going to reserve a date for my daughters wedding. We should have phoned about this in advance as unfortunately the wedding team were not available. Never mind... we will have to come back again!! Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

Lovely afternoon staff were very attentive, the only negative is that I did phone ahead to ensure we could arrive early to decorate the table but it wasn’t ready and we had to make the rest of the party wait outside as it was a surprise baby shower

The service to begin with could not be faulted at all & for the first hour the staff were very attentive but we waited half an hour to find a member of staff for the bill & a further 15 minutes before we could ask to actually pay. I’m not sure if it happened to clash with their breaks or staff changeover? Did not spoil the afternoon though just something to be noted.

I booked the Roslin for afternoon tea for my friends surprise baby shower! They were so helpful and accomadated a larger party last minute which was a life saver as didn’t want to let friends down. When we arrived they were so helpful, 2 of our party let us down last minute but they didn’t charge for them unlike other places I’ve been to so that was also really great. The food was so nice and fresh, the sandwiches and fillings were lovely and you could even order more included in the price if wanted! Had a lovely day. Thank you x

We had to ask for the tea to be changed as once poured, there was an unpleasant "scum" appearance. The staff did and although not as bad, the second pots were the same. When a refill pot was offered, it was bought out in a floral tradional style tea pot, different from the plain white tea pots previously, the tea was perfect. The staff member said she had done a quick survey of the room, and it would appear only the white tea pots gave the scum appearance. Clearly something you need to investigate. Sandwiches good, scones lovely, lime mousse had no flavor at all. We only knew it was lime because the menu said so, all four were not finished -- not worth the calories. Very busy ball room on the Saturday, in some ways, too busy Nice treat for us and our husbands, although my friend and I both said we preferred the week day service we have received previously.

Lovely afternoon with lovely food. We couldn't finish everything so we're given a box to take home the excess.
