Tea at the Hydro Majestic

We went away to the Blue Mountains for a little holiday when I visited my Mum back in Australia. We wanted to see things we loved and discover things we had never done before there, I soon discovered my Mother had never experienced a High Tea before.

This was shocking for me, I just guessed she had. As I live in London I have slowly been making my way around all the best places to enjoy a High Tea but I just thought in her life she would have enjoyed one as my Grandmother was always the type that seemed to have done a High Tea or introduced my family members to it.

So after this shocking discovery we quickly discover that the Hydro Majestic has a fabulous High Tea experience.


The Hydro Majestic Hotel has always been a icon in our travels across the Blue Mountains, located in Medlow Bath the hotel has been there since 1904. It is quite a selection of architectural designs with a mixture of Edwardian, Art Deco and 21st Century making up the hotel but what a charming experience it is as you walk around the grounds leading you inside to a warm entrance hall underneath the Dome that was shipped here all the way from Chicago.

The High Tea Experience takes place in the Wintergarden Restaurant which gives you panoramic views across the Megalong Valley. It really does know how to show off the beauty of the Blue Mountains.


The High Tea comes with a selection of cocktails to taste or teas that blossom before your eyes. A delicous selection of cakes, sandwiches and of course warm scones with jam and clotted cream. We had such a lovely time enjoying each bite and every sip of our Kir Royale’s and blossoming Tea.

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience to introduce my Mother into the world of High Tea dining.

It is a experience that everyone should take when visiting the Blue Mountains, my Mum is already talking about the next time I visit Australia we will be going there again. Can’t complain! I cannot wait to lounge in a cosy chair admire the stunning views of the Blue Mountains and enjoy a banquet of Cakes and Tea.
