I took my wife here for High Tea as a birthday gift. While not my type of thing, she really enjoyed it. We had the French Champagne package and the bubbles were really good. Sandwiches, cakes and scones were tasty and relatively substantial. The decor was cozy, classy and old world, making for a really comfortable afternoon. The wife said... More

We were staying at Lilianfels so had a cocktail in the lounge before we went out to dinner. Beautiful setting like the rest of the hotel. Nice view out to the gardens and professional but friendly service. I had a classic champagne cocktail and my husband one of the local beers. Really nice way to start our evening.

Ive been here a few times for both cocktails and thier high tea. I bring my girlfriends here for high tea when they are visitng the mountains, opting for the french champagne version. The sandwiches and scones are the best and the cakes are baked fresh each day. The outlook is stunning and the decor and comfy lounge chairs perfect... More

A wonderful place to chill out if staying at the hotel but obvious that it is a popular spot for afternoon tea which is served from 11am! Took coffee here, took a light lunch and had drinks in afternoon and post dinner. Cool piano playing from Craig Field on the Friday evening we took cocktails. Luxury and class!

its got everything , good service, comfort, warmth and style. A little crowded but that is the weekend. Never fails to deliver. Just improve the hi-tea, its cheap looking and the taste reflects. Looks are deceiving but only once.

When we have visitors to the Mountains we always grab a cocktail at the Lounge BAr before dinner. The Lilianfels building is beautiful and the decor in the Lounge impressive. Guests love the classy and historic feeling. Good range of beers and wines and the cocktail variety is impressive. They also do some of the more traditional cocktails like brandy... More

This is such a beautiful lounge area, with chandeliers, sofas and most important, with beautiful views of the valley. BUT the breakfast room is such a bad contrast to it. small, crowded, and crappy.
