    Wonderful, apart from where we were seated - away from the lounge facing a wall. not quite what I’d anticipated. felt because we had kids they moved us away from any atmosphere and the comfortable lounge seats.

    I would consider High Teas at the Intercontinental Hotel as the best we have had. So much food we usually have to get a ‘doggy bag’ to take what’s left away. The food, ambience, atmosphere and the service are outstanding. The staff are so welcoming and attend to your every needs. I would recommend the Intercontinental Hotel High Teas for that special occasion.

    Service was slow and our drinks were forgotten at one point. Some staff were great but that attention to detail wasn’t present with all. Bread was almost a bit stale - felt like it had been sitting out as wasn’t soft anymore

    Dad was keen for High Tea for Father's Day. My research indicated that the Intercontinental Hotel offering was the best in Wellington. I could see why -- the staff were warm, friendly, and attentive. The food was incredible. Each element was carefully crafted with love, with each bite a taste sensation. The bottomless barista-made coffee and fine tea selection was the cherry on the exquisite cake. I would highly recommend booking High Tea at the Intercontinental Hotel for your next special outing.

    We love high tea and decided to celebrate our mother’s 74th with Intercontinental Wellington. The service was fabulous and the wait staff very attentive. Unfortunately the food was quite a let down. The savoury food was exceptional in flavour, however there was not enough. There was way too much sweet food; two tiers. There were seven of us and all said there was too much sweet, which not most was. It eaten. We noticed other tables too had left quite a lot of the sweet food; but all the savoury were gone. A better option is to have a tier of hot savoury, a tier of cold savoury and a tier of sweets. This would be a great balance.

    The high tea was wonderful. Service was friendly and the table setting was beautiful. The only suggestion I would make is a few less sweet items, replacng them with savoury treats.

    Booked a high tea online for a 50th birthday celebration - first time ever at a high tea - and were told on arrival we could not be catered for. Post-COVID online booking wasn’t lining up with real world. We were utterly disappointed. To top it off I had a glass of wine knocked over me as some food was placed on the table! Now, to be fair - the staff owned the problem and were very apologetic and generous in making up for it. Still, didn’t get the experience of what we were looking forward to on the day,

    After checking reviews of a variety of Afternoon Teas in Wellington, we picked The Lobby Lounge for my Birthday Afternoon Tea. We were not disappointed; the quality and quantity of the food was outstanding! The only negative (possibly) was the table was almost too small to hold everything, so it felt a bit cramped at times! The lobby location was a great place to people watch; airline crew, a bride and her father and a coach tour. We were well attended too, and once we had eaten all that we could, we were not pressured in to leaving (unlike at other establishments), so we were free to soak up the atmosphere. We will definitely be back, even if it’s just for a drink/snack and people watching rather than Afternoon Tea, though we’ll be back for that too! Have been raving about the food and service to everyone who has asked what I did for my Birthday.
