These winter school holidays enjoy a very special treat with afternoon tea at the Windsor Hotel where kids aged 3-12 years only pay the price of their age when one full paying dines on a weekday. Usually, children aged 3-6 years pay $25 and 7-12 years pay $40, so it is a significant saving.
The historic Hotel Windsor has been serving traditional afternoon tea every day since 1883. The restaurant 111 Spring Street where the high tea is served is a bright and light formal dining room, with big stuffed chairs, starched tablecloths and shiny silverware.
For the school holiday promotion for weekday afternoon tea sittings adults pay the standard rate of $69 for a glass of sparkling wine, unlimited tea and a three tiered stand. There’s a rainbow of thick, freshly made finger sandwiches and dainty savoury and sweet treats.
The scones come separately (one vanilla, one fruit) accompanied by jam, lemon curd and double cream. I like how the scones are brought out only when you want them, fresh and warm from the oven. They are light and crumbly in texture with a soft crust.
Children receive their own special stand, a juice and hot chocolate.
Both adults and kids also get plus unlimited visits to the towering Chocolate Fountain!
Both kids love their experience, with Lady AB describing it as ‘very velvety, grand and fancy. Even the toilets are fancy!’.
Afternoon tea at the Windsor Hotel is an indulgent treat and if you enjoy that sort of thing with your kids then school holidays is definitely the time to go.
