“Oasis (Near the Airport)”
Reviewed 4 December 2010

Planned to stay for 2 nights and extended our stay to 6 nights! The service, the hotel, luxurious rooms and amenities (including adjacent and spectacular Waterstone Spa) provide ample reason to stay near the airport in Andheri East, Mumbai. As a business hotel, Gordon House Suites is superb~ all one's business needs are met. Gordon House Suites is one of the finest accomodations in all of India.
One completely forgets the intensity of Mumbai (the traffic in particular) when within the spaciousness of the hotel and it's grounds. Check out the Indonesian Restaurant in the Spa. (There is an additional fee for use of the Spa. Find time to use it. It's world-class)

This is a new hotel with one of the most beautiful rooms I have ever seen, especially considering it was only $150 per night. The entire place is very elegant and modern. Only two problems: the $20 gin and tonic (a months salary in Mumbai) and the cold water in the very elegant room.

I think they need to work out a few kinks before I would stay here again, but definitely worth checking out. Great beds and great room layout. Very comfortable and spacious.

Gordon house gives a different experience on every floor of the hotel. They maintain arround 4/5 themes... Some floors give a feel as if you are in the mountains and some floors give an experience of iceland...

As per the theme, every room is maintained appropriately. So it a wonderful experience. I would recommend this property to people who travel a lot and want some variety... I bet, their spouses would surely love this property.

One of the disadvantage is... their Gym is paid for... so it is big disadvantage to people like me. They don't have much variety restaurants which can be a big turn off.. Other than these 2 factors, I would say...hotel is a good value for money in their category.

Gordon house is a splendidly maintained boutique hotel.The staff is very hospitable and made me feel welcomed after a long journey.
The decor and ambience is worth noticing and so are the amenities, I recommed checking out the club faciliities if you are into fitness. Food is good and chef's are flexible to accomadate personal demands.Complimenatry DVD collection is nice.
Overall a nice experience worth repeating again.

Having booked into a different hotel for 7 nights and escaped after 1,[as previously review!] a contact suggested this hotel near the Mumbai Int Airport. It is modern, clean, bright, with excellent staff .... and is connected to a Country Club with amazing facilities - 2 mins walk away in the same compound. It is a 60 min drive out of the city busines centre, and the Mumbai traffic is horrendoes - but it is so lovely to return to the sanctuary, that is the Gordon House, at the end of a busy day in Mumbai.

I can not fault this hotel ... the rooms are all individually designed and decorated, of reasonable size and nicely furnished. There is a small garden and water feature on the 2nd floor ... [where my room was situated], with access from the Lounge. The bar is well stocked [!] and the small restaurant is adequate for this boutique hotel. Two more restaurant facilities are available in the Club House.

This is an ideal hotel for a business trip, a short stay on arrival and departure given the close proximity of the Int Airport ... but, probably not for a family holiday!

Stayed at the Gordon House Suites thrice in the span of three months for some workshops/conferences from my company. The place is fairly functional - quite conveniently located for business travelers - about 5 minutes from the international airport terminal and 20 minutes from the domestic terminal.

Each floor is interestingly themed as "Marine / Forest / Fire / Mountain / Glacier" and the decor in each of the rooms varies with the theme. I stayed in the Marine, Forest and Fire floors in each of my stays. The overall colour theme for each was Blue / Green / Orange respectively... the Forest floor had one wall with faux-bamboo finish; the marine floor had a nice blue-tiled wall which resembled a sea bed.... and more!

The rooms are semi-suites; with a partition behind the workstation separating the bed from the sitting area (thus not really creating a separate room as such).

The food quality is not bad; however the service leaves a lot to be desired.

The best part of this hotel is definitely the adjoining Waterstone Club - which is for the use of residents and club members. The latter are mainly expatriates - with a nice fat company expense account (membership is about Rs 400,000 per annum). The club has an olympic length swimming pool which is open 24 hours a day, and is one of the best maintained pools I have ever seen/used. The clarity of the water is a testament to the hard work of the staff at the club.

The fitness centre is also world class, and is an excellent facility to use!
