After two weeks on the road we were looking forward to a little luxury and indulgence - The Trident did not let us down. The hotel shares its site with The Oberoi, a very sumptuous establishment that overlooks the lake. The Trident is more modest and whilst it has no views of the lake it is an easy walk from the hotel - or take the free shuttle service provided - and then a lovely cruise across the lake to where most tourist activity centres, rather than drive. The Trident also offers lunch/dinner cruises on the lake. We indulged ourselves with a coffee in the Oberoi bar: its worth it just for a look at the hotel. How the other half live.
The Trident is in the grand league with large, comfortable rooms (we had a lovely garden view) including adequate seating. The bathrooms are a pleasure.
Breakfast can be taken inside (most people did this) or outside, where it is quieter with fresh air. Food selection and quality is very good. We had evening meals twice. A buffet is available, which looked quite good, though we opted for a la carte. We were trying to manage our waistline but the food quality at the Trident simply meant the belt went out another notch!
Service was excellent with the staff friendly, professional and helpful.
The gardens surrounding the Trident were delightful and a wonderful place to try and walk off a few calories. The pool, poolside bar and restaurant were excellent and well maintained. There was a good book shop in the foyer with an excellent choice of post cards. Postage stamps also available. Our only complaint was the cost of wi-fi. Why do hotels persist in charging such exorbitant prices? We needed to recharge the batteries for the next stage of our India odyssey and The Trident did not let us down, it was the oasis we were looking for.
