Date of stay: 1 night April 2013
Type of stay: Independent travel primarily by car on a two person tourist trip for nearly a month in Gujarat, Rajastan, Agra and Delhi
Our budget: Medium to high depending on availability in the towns we were staying.
Service: Generally good. Quick email correspondence in advance and arranged a preferential rate. They arranged an early morning pickup from the airport and our room was great. They were helpful when after checkout we found we had left a mobile phone on a chair in the room and were helpful looking for and recovering it. There was a problem paying with credit cards that they seemed to think was our fault and in spite of 4 different cards not working they seemed unwilling to call their bank (it was clear to us that their phone connection was the problem and not our cards). In the end we paid with our reserve UK currency, which was annoying and had no other card problems elsewhere in India.
Décor: Lovely place and very good sized room. Bizarre system of electrical switches in the suite – in essence rather than just a couple switches there were dozens. This seemed to be a trait of several heritage hotels we stayed in and I guess it added to the charm.
Food and drink: Average to good thali at the rooftop terrace. Juices good downstairs.
Background noise: Low but I suspect might be loud if your room was at the front.
Would I recommend: Yes, but take some backup cash to pay!
