The Manor is a purpose built small luxury hotel in a gated community near the centre of Delhi. There is a wonderful sense of space and light in the hotel with full length windows, shallow staircases and good use of right angles. It is well furnished and well decorated. Staff are helpful nbut not obtrusive.
The real highlight is the Indian Accent restaurant which takes world ingredients and Indian spices to create something new and wonderful. We had amazing pork ribs and kofte; the vegetables were great too. For me, a real revelation was the creamy black lentils in a tangy tomato influenced sauce - taking a staple dish and turning it into something special. Oh, and also the pink peppercorn pilau rice where each peppercorn explodes in a burst of flavour when crunched. Really fabulous.
The rooms were pleasant, comfortable beds and well stocked bathroom. There were plenty of terraces which would be great in warmer weather. Our room (Room 12) was very quiet and peaceful.
The two slight reservations I had: the Friends Colony West was on a gridlocked road that had us waiting in traffic for over two hours to get in. Perhaps there is a back way that might have been better but our driver didn't know it. The other reservation is the wifi - painfully slow and quite awkward to access. I know hotels like to charge for wifi (though these days wifi is hardly a luxurious extra) but if it must be paid, there are simpler ways to do it without long, convoluted log in names and signing up to irritating plans that don't seem to match what is advertised at reception and only work on one device.
Overall, though, this was a really lovely, luxurious boutique hotel and we'd love to come back one day.
