You cant but be impressed by the surroundings, if it was good enough for Queen Elizabeth and Philip then its got to be good enough for you and me! Enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea that just needed Miss Marple to turn up and the scene would have been set. The food was nicely presented and we all just felt nicely... More

Food: the sandwich and tea selections were as expected, traditional and high quality. Atmosphere was welcoming, quiet and peaceful. The crockery and cutleries were appropriately offered and changed accordingly. The service was outstanding, meeting our needs without any pressure. We could take a walk around the hotel and knowledgeable staff would tell us more about its history. I'll definitely come... More

My hens booked an afternoon tea here and it was lovely. Aside from the obviously amazing house and grounds everything was perfect. From the perfect little sandwiches and cakes to the vast choice of teas it didn't disappoint. The staff were professional and friendly and couldn't do more for us. Can't wait for my next visit!!

Luton Hoo is a magical place. It's a very grand and opulent experience. I was treated to afternoon tea as a early Mother's Day gift and it was a long awaited treat on my 'Bucket List'. The Staff were always on hand to pour that very welcome cup of tea. Two of my Daughters have a gluten free diet and... More

Myself and a friend treated ourselves to afternoon tea for our birthdays. I chose Luton Hoo as I had heard great things and it did not disappoint. In a beautiful setting we were treated to a great variety of loose leaf teas, cakes and sandwiches and we treated ourselves to the champagne- all absolutely delicious. Really great customer service throughout... More

It's a beautiful location let down by willing but untrained kitchen and serving staff. We brought another couple here as a treat. My wife ordered Caesar Salad and the waitress specifically checked if she wanted anchovies. But no anchovies when the food arrived. We asked for anchovies and they brought a saucer with anchovies 20 minutes later when the food... More
