We had a massage in the spa first and cant fault that at all. We have been to the Roslin several times before and its the best afternoon tea to be had. However we were seated and must have waited 30mins before being asked what tea we would like and that was only because we called a waitress over. She still forgot us and we had to ask another waitress who then did serve us. The food was lovely as always but the crockery we had was well past its best the teapot had no knob on the lid so was difficult to hold down when pouring and impossible to take the lid off to stir the tea. It also had a large chip in the spout and the tea cups and saucers were chipped too. Coming to the Roslin is a special treat for us and at the price we paid we expected a better service especially as service charge is included. I hope you will take these comments on board. Kind Regards Lois Peckover

A lovely afternoon. Not so keen on the cucumber sandwiches but that's personal preference! The scones were a bit dry, and it would have been nice to have a choice of plain or fruit, and a bit more cream.

Afternoon tea lovely but children rated theirs as too sweet and sickly, would have preferred savoury sandwiches. Wasn't impressed with service. But atmosphere and surroundings perfect.

The whole place was beautiful. We were early so sat in the bar area and had a drink. The afternoon tea area was so pretty! Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for a wonderful afternoon tea on Saturday 11th August for my 50th Birthday. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were absolutely delicious. Unfortunately I did not get the name of the young lady who served us, she was absolutely lovely and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in returning to the Roslin or recommending you to family and friends. Thank you again!

After booking my afternoon tea I got in contact and asked to swap some of the sandwiches and was told that was fine. I was contacted Friday to confirm my booking and my sandwhich choice. When thefood arrived I did not get what I had asked for and mentioned this to the waitress who said they have to been made and will be all along shortly, when they arrived they still weren’t right. Other tables were asked if they wanted more tea and we had to try and get someone’s attention to ask. I was not happy with the service we received.

The tea my friend and I had was lovely.when it was time to go through for our treatment, pedicure, a lady fainted in the powder room so I helped her and stayed with her, the staff were aware of this, but sadly we only were given up to our allotted time, losing approximately 15 to 20 minutes. The girls in the treatment room were very sweet, but I did feel short changed.

We had an Champagne afternoon tea as part of a spa package, our tea was served in the room. The staff serving were extremely polite and helpful, we had booked the champagne afternoon tea and at first we were only served tea, after querying this we were given prossecco. This was definitely champagne the last time we visited:(

Enjoyed a fantastic afternoon tea with my mother in law. Great venue which looked amazing after recent building works. Staff very attentive and well turned out all looked very smart and presentable. Food was lovely and very good value. Will definitely return and recommend. Looking froward to a reservation I have made to celebrate my parents 55th wedding anniversary in September. Have treated them to an overnight stay and some family members are joining them for dinner. I'm sure they will really enjoy their time at the Roslin.

Afternoon tea is delicious and plentiful - in fact too many cakes to eat but we were given little boxes to take the rest home - a nice touch I think
