The Park Hyatt Sydney serves a traditional afternoon tea in a contemporary setting.
The hotel is located in the historic Rocks precinct next to the Sydney Harbour Bridge with a view across the harbour towards the Sydney Opera House.
The hotel re-opened in early 2012 after being closed for almost a year for a $60 million AUS upgrade. The new contemporary interior design takes it’s influence from the surrounding Rocks.
We take a seat in the luxurious and relaxed Living Room, afternoon tea is off to a good start as we are offered a glass of Moët & Chandon Rosé Champagne. With silver tea pots, fine bone china and white linen, this is the type of presentation you would expect from a five star hotel. A traditional three tier cake stand is served with a side plate of warm scones. The delicate sandwiches are delicious and the tiramisu flavoured macaron is divine. There is a good balance of sweet and savoury items to choose from.
