We arrived at the hotel at about 9AM and were pleased to find that a room was ready for my friend and I to already check in too which was appreciated.
We had a room on the 1st floor which was fine, nice bed, mini bar with free water, and decent shower. I have to echo other people's comments on here that new towels might be needed as they are looking a bit tired and sad. Wifi needs to be improved- even though the wifi box was just outside our room we seemed unable to pick up any signal whatsoever. Some English channels on the TV would also be appreciated!
We ventured up to the pool one afternoon which was nice, but did find that the staff at the restaurant were doing a lot of staring which made us feel a bit uncomfortable.
Food was fine, the daal was good, but I found the breakfast lacked a lot of inspiration and needed a bit more variety!
Best part of course is the location of the hotel; go out the hotel, ignore the rickshaws, turn right and just keep walking and you reach there in about 10 minutes. Lovely.
Staff members hankering after tips for showing me my room and not even bringing my luggage (another member of staff), or for bringing a hair driver to the room, is not appreciated- please set up a system where you have tips at the front desk so tips are split evenly between all staff!
After checking out and leaving our luggage, we went to Agra Fort and came back, exhausted and sweaty. One of the staff, I think he might have been the manager, offered us a room to quickly rest before our train and have a wash- no charge. Very much appreciated, and very kind; he also helped me check that my ticket onwards to Jaipur was no longer waitlisted. I can only hope that the remaining staff start to follow him more by example; I found the staff generally were not very friendly and smiles were not returned.
Overall, pleased with the hotel.
