Very attentive staff only too willing to help. Food was delicious - definitely try the Indian special each morning at breakfast. The bedrooms are spacious and there was always hot water. The communal lounges are very pleasantly decorated and the laptop facility made life easy. Dinner was as good as the reviews suggest although I was very lazy and didn't try anywhere else given the hotel's location.
The hotel arranged trips around Delhi and to Agra for me. The Delhi trip was great - only not long enough (my fault). The drive to Agra was both long (4 hours there and 5 back) and stressful (or exhilarating if you enjoy rally driving!) as a result of the lawless roads. The Taj Mahal and Fort Agra were definitely worth seeing but I wouldn't recommend fitting it in in one day due to the travel time involved and the fact I missed the Taj at either sunset or sunrise.
I would highly recommend Shanti Home - it's a far cry from the souless chain hotels with exceptionally well mannered and attentive staff. I felt confident enough to try anything on the menu with great success. Long may the hotel maintain its standards.
