Another Tick on the Bucket List - Afternoon Tea at Reids Hotel! A tick well worth making! The Welcome, the Terrace, the View, the Staff, the overall ambiance, absolutely Superb! Then throw in an Afternoon Tea with Champagne - Superb Plus!! Definitely one of Lifes great pleasures. Our special unexpected favourite sancwich was avocado and tomato.

Had a wonderful stay over Easter, we were very lucky with the weather which helped but the hotel was beyond compare. Al fresco breakfast was marvellous. Only there for a few days so spent our days lazing around the pool, but did fit in the ballroom dancing class and garden tour, both of which were great. Didn't feel we had long enough there as everything was so lovely and relaxing and we hope to return.

We were not staying in the hotel, but as a treat we visited. Instead of the usual afternoon tea at 3.00 we went slightly earlier and had the plate of pastries. There are 6, which doesn’t seem much, but the worst is delicious, the best is amazing. The staff are so friendly and helpful making it a wonderful experience. It was so good we went again 5 days later!

The cocktails were not as good as I thought they would be the cosmopolitan cocktail had a cherry in it, I was taught to squeeze a rind of the orange to get the zest . The tea was served on the terrace which was quite windy and cold and they had run out of pashmina wraps so eventually my partner was provided with a blanket as previous clients had taken the pashminas with them. I thought it not as good as the Ritz as service was not as good until the head waiter attended to us then things improved.

The feeling of arriving at Reid’s Palace is amazing, I absolutely love the new reception area, bright open amazing, then I just need to step to the veranda & there it is the Atlantic & the harbour A M A Z I N G. Our room had a beautiful sea view & also facing the harbour, I love the high ceilings of our room. You must walk trough the gardens they are sublime & very private. The staff is very welcoming & very polite. Mr. Marcelino the Food & Beverage Director is an amazing asset to this hotel very professional & extremely helpful. I would also like to mention 2 outstanding staff members Dione & Cindy these two ladies are 6*. Let’s talk food, Breakfast by the pool it’s simply amazing & the variety of fresh food is very good plus all the other hot & cold food very tasty & well presented. We also went to William & Cipriani (both restaurants I reviewed separately) & one night just had a light meal on the veranda. I like ok forward to cool me back to Reid’s Palace very soon.
