Minus the confused desk managers, the hotel is plush with British antiques and excellent service staff. It's extremely comfortable and the bed warmers are a homey surprise. The location is central to everything and they have excellent drivers - especially ask for Sunil. He is always in a good mood, knows everywhere - even remote specialty shops I wanted to find, anticipated all my needs, and helped make touring fun.

The food was very good. They have a lot of variety in the breakfast and lovely high tea at the hotel.

We really enjoyed high tea about 16h30 here at the Elgin. The waiters put us right in front of the fireplace, which was heavenly given how cold it was this week. Thoroughly enjoyed tea and snacks for about 1.5 hours--- relaxing and talking. The Elgin itself is a lovely hotel/bar/restaurant, and staff were so friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!
