Very nice old period hotel that Taj group has tried to bring up to its standard. Facility must be challenging to maintain, my room could have used more paint and fewer pigeons in the corridor. Staff is extremely attentive, to the point where this is one of those places where there is frequently someone in your room fussing with something, and one does not need to always be chatted up by staff. Excellent service although i could have been left alone a little more. My room must have been from an earlier era, with very high ceilings, exposed architectural roof rafters, and lots of wood trip around the doors. Didn't really have a window to the outside since it opens to a deck but that was boarded in for repairs.
Basically a quirky hotel and grounds that is a delightful change of pace and sanctuary in a busy city, where staff tries to make up for the challenges that come with an older high-character property. I've stayed here before and will stay again.
Went with my parents and reserved 2 rooms. Luckily they were both near to each other. During check in the bellboy couldn't be convinced by the checkin guy to show us our room, because he was more interested in helping another busty guest. We showed ourselves to our rooms. But the housekeeping and the dining staff more than made up for it. My parents were staying in a 5 star property for the first time, so the housekeeping guys were quite helpful and I tipped them nicely for their help while leaving.
"Everything was good... Food I would rate average.."
Food was average.. After giving inputs chef did try improving the dish.. Breakfast is very average nd less variety.. Room is comfortable but not sound proof , meaning movement outside or in the next room can be heard especially in the night it makes u feel someone is trying to open ur door but is actually opening theirs.
Staff is excellent... Rooms are clean .. Room service is great.. Someone who is not fussy about food can opt for this..

Initially booked 3 nights through expedia, then extended for another 2 nights. When extending i enquired about the room rates per night, the person at the reception agreed for the the rate i booked using expedia. When i checkout, he told that the agreed rate is for 'WITHOUT BILL', with bill it costs around Rs.1000 more for 2 nights. I feel this is perfect cheating. The food served in the restaurant is far below the minimum standard expected in these level of hotels.
