Why we love it

  • You would usually pay £43.90 for this package -- with this offer it works out at £12.50 each
  • The 18th-century hotel "offers a sense of sanctuary just yards from the bustle of Bloomsbury and Oxford Street", says Frommer's
  • You can take your afternoon tea in the Alchemy restaurant, the library or the private garden on warmer days

The gardens are nice on a summer day, and the ambience in the library as well. Good location, good price (considering a glass of Prosecco is included)

I booked for my friend and myself and received confirmation of my booking online. Upon arrival, I was told I was expected the day before. Although I could show them the confirmation e-mail (containing the CORRECT date!), they treated me as if I had booked for the wrong date. I had booked a table in the garden, which was not available when we arrived, so we were seated in the library, which is nice enough, but unfortunately, people were constantly walking through it as they went to the garden or the other way round.

Lovely cream tea in the garden which was excellent

The setting. Even though the hotel is one a very busy road, when we were directed to the courtyard where our tea was to be served, you could barely hear the traffic - only the birds and the gently flowing fountain. The hotel itself is very quietly grand and beautifully furnished. I'll definitely recommend it to visiting friends and relatives.

The scones were to die for.

The Academy was a most interesting hotel....very nicely furnished

with regard to afternoon tea, I feel the sandwiches needed thinner bread or extra filling, the ratio of bread to filling not correct. 2 large scones too much better to have smaller scones and perhaps home made cake
