Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 9 February 2024 via mobile

As parents of two small children, it’s a special treat for us to go to a nice restaurant for dinner and the Chandelier lounge was perfect and a good option at our hotel. The food was nice (particularly the kids menu was really great with...being able to order some veggies too), but mostly our attendant, Sushmita from Nepal, made the night really special for our kids and us. She was extremely thoughtful and friendly and we felt very welcomed. We would like to thank you again and the kids and us send you best wishes!More

We were staying at Cordis Hotel and saw the High Tea experience. Waitekaha was kind enough to squeeze us in for same day reservation (which is not usually done). It was amazing food and the staff was wonderful. Definitely a must when in Auckland. We...were celebrating my doctorate completion and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and celebrated. Thank you to Waitekaha and Kirk for making our tea experience so memorable. They deserve a raise!More

The service and the tea/beverages were excellent! The desserts were OK overall, but the food was mediocre. I expected more for the price of this high tea. What made it 4 stars and not 3 was the service and people.

My friends (especially the future bride!) were blown away by the amazing High Tea experience we had here. From entering the lobby & finding the chandelier lounge to being greeted by attentive & friendly staff we were given the 5 star treatment. You are offered...a selection of 2x hot drinks to choose from and from the start you are given an iced tea & water for each guest as a part of the table layout. The food is amazing & we had the best waitress ever (thanks Waiti!). The communication in making the booking was awesome as well. Thanks Cordis High Tea for a memorable experience! - NeomaiMore

Today we had a wonderful afternoon at The Chandalier Lounge high tea in the Cordis Hotel. Everything was superb from the service & friendly staff, the gorgeous setting and ambiance - the live harp music was magic. The table was beautifully set with linen serviettes...and fine china and we were offered a welcome mocktail to start. There is a menu of teas to choose from and also other hot drinks available, plus champagne. Our teas were served in individual teapots. Now about the food. We are all foodies and were blown away by the selection and quality of the afternoon tea. Such exquisite blending of flavours and each delicacy was a work of art. Will definitely be back.More

My friend and I came for a long overdue catch up and this was a very nice experience overall. Most of the food was delicious - just a couple of items were a little out of the ordinary. While we appreciated the effort, cold pea...mousse and basil (and lemon?) scones weren’t a huge hit. Plenty of food and two hot drink options included each - and small branded boxes to takeaway our leftovers for our husbands! Friendly staff including the man who offered to take photos for us. Definitely a lovely spot to catch up with friends or for a birthday afternoon tea.More

We had coffee here after a busy day and dinner at a local restaurant and loved the atmosphere, the coffee and the service. It is an elegant and peaceful place, perfect for winding down and socialising with not sense of rush.

Looking for a quick drink before dinner at 8, was not so quick. Came down from out room about 20 minutes before our dinner reservation, shown to some seats and given a menu, waited and then had to flag some attention to place the order....Then wait again before drinks arrived. In the end we had to take the drinks to our table at the restaurant. And they were not that busy. The place would have been less than half full. Atmosphere however was great and was very comfortable.More

The Lobby Lounge has a good variety of food; The schnitzel and steak were good; the fish and chips were nice and hot but a little greasy. It's quite convenient and service was fair but it was busy with only one waiter and a couple...of staff. Prices were average for a hotel restaurant; $40 per meal.More

We went for a friend's birthday, unfortunately we did not have a great experience. Service was terrible.Our table was pointed to from the bar.We were served the wrong bottle of bubbles and then it was taken off the table when it was only half full....There was no explanation regarding the different teas. I let the hotel know it was my friend's birthday and no special treatment was evident. The flowers were half dead. The food was very good however spolit by the service. The waitress did lift the lid of my teapot to sniff it. This was not a cheap outing and we definitely felt very underwhelmed by our experience.More
