    It was a perfect afternoon tea, I could not ask for more. The only thing that I couldn't understand was why the staff were all wearing Scottish kilts in a swiss alpine-esque hotel with a name referencing Wales. It was still wonderful though!

    My wife and I enjoyed the nice variety of teas and the triple tier tray that had sandwiches and rolls on the bottom, tasty bites on the middle and dessert-type items on the top. The service was great!

    Cons: Cucumber sandwiches had too much cream cheese and too little cucumber. Tea was artificially flavoured. Water for tea wasn't piping hot. (I HATE lukewarm tea.) Banana cream tarts had condensate/liquid on top of the banana custard. Seating was in the dining room, not in the lounge (with a view) as illustrated on the web site. Pros: The scones were very nice. Service was fine. All in all, not the top-shelf experience I was expecting. Heritage Park's tea is much nicer.

    The afternoon with my daughters and grandaughter was a wonderful experience. This was a gift from my employer upon retirement from 45 years of nursing. I first had high tea with my grandmother in England over 50 years ago and have always enjoyed the experience. The day was a wonderful day of laughter and more memories of a high tea. We shall return.

    We attended for High Tea and loved it. The server (Maya) was fantastic and really made us feel welcome. The food was delicious and the ambiance and view was spectacular. At first glance it did not seem like very much food on the tiers, but I can confirm that we felt we had to roll out of the restaurant by the time we were done. Overall a very pleasurable experience and a definite repeat for next year.

Thanks also to the glory of our beautiful planet for such a divine setting. I can only hope that this place and the energy of humankind within will continue to be accessible for the next 100 years!

    We weren't able to stay at the hotel, but were able to make dining reservations. It was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is wonderful - beautiful view and great historic hotel. The food was very good - 4 of us each chose a different meal - all 4 meals were excellent. It's a little pricey but we thought it was worth it. Service was a little slow, but think the servers were stretched with many tables. We didn't mind. A fun experience overall.

    Very enjoyable the best scones I've ever had. Been in twice this year for tea and both times had different scone options and they were all wonderful. Only complaint is that the flies were very bothersome. Plus my tea water wasn't very hot. Will definitely be back

    The food and service and ambiance was great. This was our first time at the Royal Stewart Dinning Room and we would definitely go again. My only complaint would be the $10.50 parking fee. I feel that after you've already paid to enter the park and are Dinning at the restaurant you shouldn't have to pay for parking as well.

    The food was wonderful and it would be very difficult to beat the ambiance and setting. Our server was very good, attentive and very friendly. We love afternoon teas and were a little taken aback by the fact the tea was not served in tea pots and the cream came in little plastic disposable cups. My husband is a tea snob and expects a certain temperature of his water so that the tea can be properly brewed. My husband had to ask for a new cup of hot water that would be microwaved to make it hotter. Overall, it was pleasant, but we’ve definitely had better.

    The restaurant is (barely) acceptable. When a special dish - elk ragout - is still on the menu, but with ordinary beef substituted for the elk, you know there is a problem. A special request that we had made months before the actual date for a window table (this was a special birthday dinner) was completely ignored with a statement that all tables are first-come first-served. Not impressed.

    We looked forward to our high tea and sadly were disappointed. The service was spotty at best, with wait staff friendly enough but seem tired of doing their job. Food was not that good- sandwiches dry, sweet seemed like left overs and scones sadly where dry and hard too. Tea was tasty. Sad experience.

    Very disappointing. Not at all elegant. No table linens. Sandwich bread was dry; some pastries were tasteless. No saucers for spoons or tea bags so we had to just plop them on the table. Server never took away our trash. WORST of all, one person in our table of 6 declared her nut allergy, but the server FORGOT to tell the kitchen and the trays came with 2 items that could have killed her had she not double checked before eating them. Disgraceful. We will never visit again or recommend visiting.

    Perfect value for the money. My daughter was four years old and joined me for tea and was not charged for her plate which was a very nice surprise. I was however surprised that we did not receive matching China tea cups to the plate and saucer set… The modern style tea cups were a little disappointment as well as the commercial honey and milk creamer’s rather than a milk carafe, not typical to Fairmont standards. The value for the seating was perfect and we had a wonderful time.

    Tea was great, but disappointed that it was from a 3rd party vendor. The bread sandwich was stale. Too many flies, felt like it was a picnic! Waitress spoke very fast, with her accent (not her fault) it was sometimes hard to understand her. Just speak slowly, all would have been good. On a side note; how often do the carpets get cleaned? They are disgusting dirty, look at the path into kitchen along the walls, night and day difference. Clean carpets would make a huge difference!

    They are now charging non refundable $10.50 to park whilst dining. Most restaurants will offer free parking if you’re dining there. Cash grab! Asked for window table - none free. 15 mins later someone went straight to a window table! It was very hot. Fans would have helped. Last visit here fans were available. At entrance a no abuse policy was posted due to staff shortage- but this is no excuse for missed orders eg we ordered two drinks and it was missed until I asked again politely for fear of the no abuse sign!!! Food was good as usual. Waiter tried hard to do his best serving us. Stop charging dining guests a parking fee even if I’m not staying there. We eat here every time we come to waterton and we come here often. Hope you can attract more staff!
