I live the Westbury and the staff were very nice but service was slow. We had to wait some times each time we wanted to top up our drinks. Also I thought that the difference between ‘The Westbury’ afternoon tea and the one with champagne - which we had - was overpriced with two glasses of champagne amounting to €40

Very disappointing experience for myself and my five fellow guests. In future I will chose the Merrion or the Shelbourne. Service very poor - even though I specified to the server who brought us to the table that I alone was to pay the bill (as it was an afternoon tea organised and hosted by me) the same person proceeded to cluelessly give a run down of the prices to the entire table and made everyone at the table feel awkward and obligated to offer to pay for themselves. A disgraceful lack of tact by the server. You are not a coffee shop that has to list-off prices. Furthermore the server who took our order shamed us by asking us twice if we didn't want to upgrade to the champagne option for EU73. We had non-drinkers and drivers in the party. When we declined this option, the server asked us AGAIN- everyone commented on how it was awkward and embarrassing and overall too much of a 'hard sell' approach. As both a marketing lecturer and a customer, it was poor service all round which was compounded when we wanted help with more drinks, we had to wait a good while to try and attract a passing waiter's attention. Very poor experience all round. I would expect better from the Westbury.

Myself and my partner visited for Afternoon Tea. Unfortunately, the sandwiches and cakes were not fresh at all. I was extremely surprised and disappointed since I’d been there before and it was amazing. The service was fantastic as usual.

Arrived with my wife and in laws. We all had a wonderful 2/3 hours, particularly the girls who enjoyed your scones and wine. Service and ambience was superb. One downside was the Guinness brought to the table - it was very poor :-( Background music could have been turned down slightly - small point though. Thanks!
