The Wintergarden at Hydro Majestic Blue Mountains
Food was a bit sub par and there was a wedding in half the room so the atmosphere was a bit lacking it’s usual calm
Expensive but you’re paying for the whole experience, and that experience is elegant and beautiful.
Very pricey for what we received. Didn’t receive 2nd round of coffee/tea. Table linens weren’t ironed on any tables. Coffee was like warm at best. We specifically said “no seafood” came back with anchovy paste on sandwiches. Definitely not worth the 1.5hour drive up there. Overall what was supposed to be a great day out for my mums 79th birthday was hindered by providing what we could have done at home for a fraction of the cost.
My sisters and I took our Mother here for her birthday this year. It was such a beautiful experience. Staff and service were incredible. We felt very well looked after and staff attended to all of our needs without hesitation. The High Tea itself was one of the best we have ever had. The venue was beautiful, clean and cosy, and offers the most stunning views of the mountains. All in all and amazing experience.
The service was great, although there were several different people who attended our table which made it seem a bit intrusive and disorganised (don’t waiters have sections?), the quality of the food was great however portion sizes were very small. The wine by the glass list was limited. We watched people around us receive their mains despite being seated before them, had to ask what was happening for them to realise they never reached the kitchen. The food was nice but not the best I’ve had for the price.
High tea was delicious , great atmosphere and friendly staffs
From the moment you step through the doors it’s an exquisite hotel. The views, decor, food & service was amazing. Definitely recommend the high tea. Will definitely return. Thank you for our wonderful experience 😊
my mum and I had a fabulous experience, thank you ☺
We had a really lovely dining experience. The services was fantastic and the food was delicious.
We would definitely return!
What a wonderful experience.
Our dining was very private, but restaurant was very popular, our waiters were superb and we felt very special.
This dining experience was a part of a voucher which included the 3 course meal. Highly recommended for a one off dinner or gift voucher, such a lovely evening all round.
The view was amazing, the service was great and the food was plentiful and absolutely lovely. The whole experience was magnificent and the elegant décor of the restaurant creates a wonderful regal ambiance.
The Hydro High Tea was a lovely experience, even with mist in the valley the scenery was wonderful. The waiter was very attentive and explained everything on the menu and asked about different dietary need. Would go back again.
Special anniversary. Beautiful spot near windows. Lovely service. Ambience. Food well presented and tasty. 2 hot drinks each.
We stayed a night at the Hydro Majestic hotel, and decided to eat at the Wintergarden Restaurant. The room is absolutely beautiful, like stepping back in time.
The service was outstanding, very efficient and friendly.
Our meals were delicious, some would say on the small side, but the flavours were great. My chocolate dessert was wonderful. All around it was a special experience.
The waiters you could not understand as their accents were heavy. The food was ok, have been their previously and not as good. Dissapointing for the $$
A beautiful location with spectacular scenery. Great service and food. A must when visiting Katoomba.
The experience commenced the moment you walk through the doors of the Hydro Majestic - the professional staff, the gorgeous furniture and period pieces throughout.
We had high tea and everything morsel was a taste sensation.
I have zero negative comments to make.
Thank you for making this such a special occasion for my friends and especially a surprise for my mum!
It was very pleasant. A proper afternoon tea experience. All the food was delicious, a sumptuous feast for two - we could not eat it all. The staff were attentive and professional.
We had the Eastern afternoon tea which was well presented and very nice.
A lovely experience celebrating our 29th Wedding Anniversary!
This place has improved so much over the last few years. There was a time back in the early 2000's when the HydroMajestic had fallen into a state of disrepair, but that is no longer the case. Now, it is not only restored to its former glory, but is probably better than it has ever been!
The food and the service are wonderful, top notch!. (The only improvement I can recommend is that they should serve tea in proper china cups, not ceramic "catering-type" cups. Especially when the tea is this good!)
I can highly recommend a High Tea here for a special occasion.
Exceptional food, that’s beautifully presented and taste exceptional
Loved the piano - but it was a little loud at times
Enjoyed the food and atmosphere very much. We felt very safe too all COVIDSAFE. We recommend this wonderful experience highly. Will return soon.
Driving from Sydney with Canadian friends to have a lovely Afternoon area was a complete waste of time and money going to the Hydro Majestic. Having our table time reduced down to 90 mins was one thing but then from the 1hr mark being given the bill and encouraged to finish up when people were paying at least $79pp was so rude. We were still waiting on drinks to be served when the bill was handed to us. To have 2 servings of tea but having to beg the waiter to fill the teapot with hot water was disgraceful. We should have returned to the QVB where this kind of poor service is not tolerated by their quality of staff. Will never return.
Great experience, thorough enjoyed it the view was magical - the piano playing added a beautiful vibe . Would be great is there was more choices for children very good for adults.
Great location, good food catering to df and gf, very good service
Our visit to The Wintergarten is a delight.
Wonderful atmosphere together a meal that was a Gastric Delight made for a totally enjoyable visit
Overpriced; poor food quality; not a traditional high tea, mass produced & not home made, would not recommend and won't be returning.
Would highly recommend coming to this place for the experience. Loved the views and the service was very professional.
Beautiful setting and an "experience" for sure. Special highlight though is the service of Mathilde the Receptionist who gave us a tour of the rooms. Martin and Kai in restaurant - attentive service providers. Only disappointment was the 90 minute time limitation but totally understandable as a COVID measure.
The food was Delicious. Enough for all of us. spectacular views
The Majestic High Tea was lovely, but getting the coffees before the food meant they were almost cold when the food came. Coffee top ups during the food would have been good. I did order more coffees about half way through but they did not come until we had finished eating.
We had a traditional and eastern high tea, both of which were delicious. We had a bit of trouble catching the attention of the wait staff but all interactions with them were great - lovely people, view was mostly obscured by cloud but this didn't detract from the experience. Will return again.
It was our treat for Father’s Day.
The ambience of The Wintergarden Restaurant is elegant. The waiters and waitresses are well trained, and provide high quality service. The food is healthy and tasty with artistic presentation.
We had a family celebration and all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Wonderful experience at the Hydro Majestic. Highly recommend this experience! Ask for a window seat~
REALLY ENJOYED OUR FOOD AND DINING IN VIEWS SPECTACULAR, FOOD AMAXING
A beautiful venue for a special high tea experience. Staff were very friendly and the service was good.
