“Amazing property, staff and cleanliness!!!”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I stayed with Wyndham grand Agra for two days. I was delighted to see such a wonderful property. Rooms are beautiful and well decorated. Cleanliness was above expectation. Staff was very polite, professional and courteous. It was an wonderful experience for me. I will defiantly stay in this hotel again.
I really appreciate those people who are responsible for upkeep and cleanliness of this property.

Room Tip: One should must stay at this hotel once in their lifetime.

"Home away from Home " is the first thing that comes to my mind after my visit to this resort.
It brings a nostalgic feeling as soon as you enter the property. Cleanliness was the first thing that me & my wife were impressed with , "KUDOS" to the housekeeping for keeping the mammoth task of keeping such a big property spic "n" span..
Being located near TAj and also KFC , McDonalds , made it a gr8 vacation for the kids too...
every thing was taken care of with utmost care be it security , interior in rooms , Gym , spa , restaurants , Swimming pool , fountains , etc.
We would like to return here again & again atleast once a year .

This is an amazing and huge property. Food and room service was also very satisfactory, we were in Tansen court. We have been to this hotel on 10th August and it was my husbands birthday. Hotel arranged the songs dedicated to us in their Indian Restaurant with the special cake and candle night table, staff at the restaurant was also very good.I have informed them in advance about the occasion and they have arranged the room with flowers and cake wishing him on his birthday.Spa was very expensive and not worth the money.Breakfast was ok and not that outstanding.The layout of the hotel is great and you don't feel like going out of the hotel.

The lobby is the best thing about the hotel. We checked into the hotel about 9pm booked a Deluxe room but the hotel allocated a standard room. We had proof from our travel agent stating that we had paid for a deluxe room but we not allocated the room. The management is really slack. As international guests the hotel management should have done something to sort the mess out given the fact that I had my voucher printed from the agent stating what room was paid for.
The room we were allocated(standard type) musty damp smell. The room was detached from the main hotel, my family and I had to walk outside of the hotel in the cold to get to the hotel room. The heating was definitely insufficient for winter conditions. The bathroom was cold and dirty. The cleanliness of the restaurant was appaulling. The cups and saucers were dirty on a daily basis. I was quite embarrassed as I had to constantly ask for clean cups, plates and saucers. I had men knocking on my door at 2am and stating it was room service, when I didn’t order. I called the reception and they promised to send security but waited and nobody pitched up. There was a room full of men on the same level as my room and they were drinking and disturbing my family as well as other residents close by. I called the hotel manager several times to inform them that the men were playing loud music and constantly knocking on my room door and they promised to send over the security however no security came to the rescue and those disturbance lasted till 5am. The hotel manager should have thrown the disturbing guests- yet they they failed to apologize for any disturbance and even on departure there wasn’t any acknowledgement from management. I would be informing all my friends and family about this hotel and would tell each and every person visiting India to keep away from this resort.
CONS: 5 * hotel, NO FREE WIFI.

The property is really beautiful and huge. The bar (Jharokja) at the hotel was great for a couple of drinks. Small requests were taken care off in a quick and efficient manner. It took some time to figure out the lights, etc. The restaurant (Pakhtoon) was a slight disappointment. The food was just okay. I am not sure what the issue was but the acoustics were not right for the live music that was being played. It just ended up being too loud. Not a pleasant experience. The breakfast spread at the other restaurant (Zaika) was pretty decent.

This is a very nice hotel. However, during winter time there is no heat in the rooms and particularly in the bathrooms. They supply a small heater on request, but not sufficient to heat the bedroom and the bathroom. We kept the door between both rooms open as a compromise.
The service personnel is very friendly, but the front office was somewhat lacking of experience and not very clear in their explanations. Breakfast was a little poor for such kind of hotel with little choice, particularly for Europeans. Internet to pay.

Room Tip: Ask for a heater during winter season.

Wyndham Agra is an amazing property with a beautiful layout that holds you mesmerised. Literally makes you feel like an Emperor. Rooms are quite good and large. We stayed at The Jehangir Court and the view from the room was out-of-the-world.
Breakfast was okay not outstanding. The low point was the miser approach of the management. Do not expect free Sauna and Steam as you do in ITC and the upkeep is definitely sloppy. The heaters did not work. All of us were shocked out of our skins with a mid-aged white lady rushing out in a towel after the Fire-Alarm went off. The hooting did not stop for 10 mins. despite calling the front desk.
It is sad that such a beautiful property gets neglected by guests because of the cold unwelcoming approach! Could compete with ITC if amenities and services are improved

Room Tip: Take the Jehangir Court. The long shot view is amazing, only you have to walk down through the garde...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay with Wyndham Grand, Agra and for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor.

We are pleased to know that you had a wonderful stay and were impressed with the setting of the property. We apologise for the minor problems faced by you. We hope all our guests understand and appreciate if the fire alarm starts, incase a guest has created such a situation where the same happens due to smoke detection. We also would not switch it off, just so that the noise stops, till the time we have checked all concerned areas to ensure no guest or the property face any harm.

Thank you once again for choosing to stay with us.

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back.
