There’s no doubt about it, The Dorchester Hotel is seriously posh. Luckily I had a generous gift voucher so was able to treat my Mum and I to their limited offer ‘beau-tea-ful’ spa day (including massage/ facial, use of facilities and afternoon tea in The Dorchester Spatisserie for £135 per person).
My absolute highlight? I love dressing up for afternoon tea, but discovered dressing down is even better, and by down I mean taking tea in a huge white robe and slippers spa-style. The sophisticated Spatisserie was very quiet, with lots of glass furniture, white orchids and soft lighting to ensure you didn’t lose the zen feeling of their relaxation room (I was straight back in there for a nap after tea!)
I visited on the first day of their Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea and definitely appreciated the theme with top hat, card and melting clock treats. We were also given seconds to take away. The sandwiches were my favourite part with a real variety of breads, including a tasty nutty granary. With bread this good, The Dorchester is able to keep their sandwich filings deliciously simple with the likes of cream cheese and cucumber, egg, ham and cheese.
If you’re one for splashing out on spa treatments and sweet treats, this could be an afternoon tea for you!
