What a fantastic High Tea, lots of beautiful savoury and sweet treats. Excellent service our waitress was so polite and helpful as well as friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Great relaxing space with know one rushing you. Would recommend to anyone.

The service, tea and quality of the food is worth a mention. Though the food was great, a little more savoury would have been nice as we both suffered from a bit of a sugar high towards the end of the afternoon. High tea at the InterContinental definitely deserves my recommendation.

Amazing value and the food was so delicious. I have been to quite a few high teas and food wise this was at the top. Only thing that stopped five stars was that we weren't checked on for quite some time, and I had to really sought out a waiter to get some more tea.

We were really well looked after. In our party of three; two were pregnant and one person was gluten free, our high tea was catered to our needs perfectly and no one felt they had less of an experience. Food was amazing and well worth the money
Fabulous all round

I’ve been before to the High Tea and think it is the best one in Wellington. Couldn’t fault it. I would definitely go again.

I organised a surprise High Tea for my friend. We were a table of five. The high tea was beautiful and so fresh and delicious and we got the coolest boxes to take our left overs home in. My only piece of feedback was the tables were too small for the food and cups but really ... that's a pretty minor thing to have to complain about. This was a wonderful experience that I can't wait to repeat!

Service not at level 5 star hotel should be at. Food (high tea) took 40 minutes to arrive ie. 30 min after drink. Very slow

Perfect afternoon/ lunch for my elderly mother in law. Very heavy on sweet items - we all would have liked less food but more savoury than sweet. Thank you

Great experience and well worth it. Tips for improvement: was disappointed to be told that our high tea would be in the restaurant and not in The Lobby (as promoted). Staff were ok when we asked if we could be in the Lobby. They also forgot to take our tea order so I had to ask.

Overall it was great. However upon booking high tea for Mother’s Day I wasn’t advised it would cost an extra $20pp. Please let your customers know next time.

We added someone to our group but there was no flexibility which ended up being fine because there was plenty of food. I took the kids as a birthday surprise and has booked online. I wasn’t given the option of kids high tea. The waitress then informed me of the option but couldn’t explain the difference and then said we couldn’t have it anyway and the teable was too small for all the things that came for four people. The food was exquisite and there was plenty but the service was fairly average.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, particularly with trying out the various tea. Service was excellent. The young lady serving us was so patient explaining the different tea and checking on us now and then to make sure we are happy. Five star!

Best value for money high tea in Wellington. Have been back twice now and each time I'm impressed. Great atmosphere for a relaxing afternoon of conversation and decadence with friends or family. You will leave very fill and possibly with a doggy bag of sweet treats for later.

Quality of sweet items & sandwiches was superb. There were too many sweet items & not enough savoury items.
Of the savoury items - the scones were stale & quite chunky in appearance. I'm not sure I would label a piece of blue cheese on a slice of apple as a savouty "high tea" item - more like a post dinner item.

We thoroughly enjoyed our High Tea. Excellent service and food quality and presentation. I have been to Claridges in London for High Tea and the Intercontinental Wellington was as good if not better. We would and already have recommended it to friends. Our 85 year old mum who joined us was absolutely delighted right down to the sugar cubes in her tea. Many thanks.

Excellent food and tea, great atmosphere and lots of space. Really enjoyed our day, only criticism is that I wasn’t advised at time of booking that we would be charged for the number booked for even if they didn’t show up. I had one person not able to make it on the day so still had to pay for them.

Best high tea I've had in town. However. They took long to serve our tea and forgot some of the people in our table. Also they did ask if we wanted more hot water for the pots or just water in general. And they charged random amounts for our bill which was individually paid. Food was great though. Would come again.

Took my mum to Lobby Lounge for a belated birthday High Tea during her visit to Wellington! It was a lovely spot, easy walking distance to the waterfront and very comfy spot. We were right by the window which was great for people watching and just gazing out at the world passing by. The tea choices were fantastic, as were the bubbles we had with the high tea. The high tea selections were amazing! There was a really good selection of savoury and sweet bites provided, all very yummy - it's a 'big' high tea so we were definitely feeling well fed by the time we finished. Would highly recommend it to anyone :) A++++ Will definitely be back!
