The scones weren't fresh. The Server in the black uniform was rude and was so scared that we will break the china (4 adult ladies). We paid for 6 ladies, but only 4 came when we asked for extra tea the staff was very unhappy...to give it to us. Nothing to do with real tea time in EnglandMore

Afternoon tea at The Townsend is a must. Had the best time celebrating my birthday with my husband and parents. The service was above and beyond. The dainty little sandwiches were delicious and the desserts were also very tasty. The atmosphere is also lovey and...not too loud at all. The staff even sang happy birthday to me! Highly recommend. Anyone who visits the Townsend should do afternoon tea. Also the price is reasonable. The flat rate that was quoted to us included tax and tip.More

Just returned from having Afternoon Tea at the Townsend. Every year on this day it’s a mother daughter tradition to celebrate moms birthday with a tea party! We have gone to many Afternoon Tea events and nothing compares to this one in particular. Our Tea...Director Marsha, was fantastic! So attentive and extremely knowledgeable about all the different teas. She even let us try a special tea typically served in the summer months which was amazing! She also went above and beyond to ensure my moms birthday was special by bringing out a couple of desserts with a candle. Kudos to Marsha can’t wait to come back.More

As always the Townsend Tea is very special! The hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays and made for a lovely afternoon with friends relaxing and enjoying the festive atmosphere. The delicious little sandwiches and traditional sweets were perfect. It was so nice to take...a moment out of our hectic lives to sit down with friends for the timeless ritual of having tea and catching up! It was mini vacation from our everyday busyness to celebrate friendship and a birthday! We will be back again very soon!More
