High Tea at Hadley’s Hotel Hobart

IMG_3871I booked Mum and I in for High Tea at Hadley’s Hotel in Hobart last week (my pre-birthday celebration) and what a delicious treat it was. While they don’t have a regular High Tea if you pre-book (as I did) they will organize a special selection for you.

So with booking made, we got our selves along to Hadley’s.

Hadley’s was first built in 1834 and is now a National Trust listed hotel, in fact it is the oldest continuously operating boutique hotel in Tasmania. Not only does Hadley’s offer a range of room types to cater for your business travel, short stay or family holiday needs, it is also home to Restaurant 1834, The Lobby Bar, and a range of conference and event facilities. Located in the heart of the city it is also just a short stroll from the vibrant waterfront precinct and Salamanca Place.

As it was a quiet day we opted to have our High Tea in the Lobby Bar. The decor is a mix of old world with modern convenience. We sat at a marble coffee table with large leather armchairs that were very comfortable. Our waiter took us through the tea selection and organised another table to help accommodate the pots of tea, cups, plates, glasses of bubbly and High Tea tower of goodies.

Our High Tea selection was:

IMG_3860Middle tier – a selection of petit four patisserie including two types of fudge, two tarlets, a chocolate covered chocolate mousse tart, a caramel tart, and two eclairs.
IMG_3861Bottom tier – a selection of sandwiches: ham and cheese, chicken mayonnaise, and smoked salmon.
