Yesterday we visited The Berkeley Hotel to enjoy their themed afternoon tea – Pret-A-Portea also known as Dior Afternoon Tea.
The Berkeley is described as a 5 star luxury hotel in the heart of Knightsbridge. A night here will set you back a crazy £570! (I know, madness right?). However, it is also home to one of the best afternoon teas we have ever had!
Inspired by the most iconic creations by Christian Dior, the most well known pieces have been transformed into biscuits, bakes and fancies.
The attention to detail is non comparable – each treat was just like the professional photographs we had seen when booking (something I tend to complain about!).
The tea is priced at £60pp or £70pp with champagne. This is very reasonable for London teas and I would say is really worth the expense. We paid for two as the staff here were kind enough to make Ita her own plate of ham sandwiches. As she doesn’t really eat sweet foods she was quite happy to have a little taste of our cakes. “Sharing is caring” as she says! Also of note is that we were not charged for Ita’s sandwiches. This gratitude goes so far with us. It really isn’t of much cost to hotels such as this but it is a clear indication of how well children are received.
The staff at The Berkeley were so warm and inviting. At least 3 members, including our waiter, made time to talk to Ita. She was given a colouring in book and pencils to keep her occupied too!! We have never had a real problem bringing Ita to nice places but this occasion really stood out for all the right reasons. When children are made to feel welcome, adults relax and enjoy the experience more!
