Going for a drive to Bowral with our elderly parents we decided to drop in to Milton House for afternoon tea. Unfortunately, as we were not booked into Milton Park as hotel guests we were not permitted to stay for coffee. I found this totally unbelievable. I have visited many exclusive hotels around the world and this is the first time I was made to feel out of place. The restaurant had only 8 guests dining. Surely there is a better way of handling this. As a consequence I would never choose to stay at such an elitist venue. While the venue looks beautiful, the snobby culture within is extremely unappealing.
