Clarks Avadh
Ranked #6 of 106 Hotels in Lucknow
Reviewed 18 July 2012

I selected this hotel due to its close proximity to place I had to visit for work. The lobby is grand, and it quite amusing to see CFL bulbs atop chandliers, but eco-friendly initiative is worth appreciating. The reception staff is very helpful and courteous. Do visit lawns next to grand lobby. Morning is best time for bird watching. Upholstery of furniture in lobby looks dull and not fresh. The room had view of river which does not look like one due to human infestation along the banks. Room is chilly and there is no regulator for adjusting room temperature. Toiletries have to be requested from house keeping. Visit to Falaknuma [rooftop restaurant] is recommended for tasty food, live gazal, 360 degree view and warmth whith which they serve - makes you feel like a Nawab. I wanted to eat there for second time, but food is really heavy on stomach [lot of cottage cheese]. Breakfast in Gulfam [ground floor] was not arranged as buffet a 4 or 5 star hotel would have but it may be an exceptiona lcase for the day. Polishing of wooden furniture and new linen would be welcome change for getting a 5 star feeling at this property.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms have river side view

This is old hotel with specious and well built rooms. Centrally located and the famous Hazaratganj is walking distance. Sufficient parking is available. However service is on poor side. In room dining service also is not up to the level of the hotel.

The top restaurant facing the river gomti is excellent place for dining and live music. Non veg food is of very high standard.

The meals rates looks to be on higher side.

Room Tip: All rooms are more or less alike

It provides all that one would need during business stay. I especially liked its ambience and rooms. Rooms were spacious and fully equipped with modern facilities and the central AC just kept us really cool. The restaurant at the roof top was amazing experience with live ghazals and songs with light music while relishing the tasty food. Service should have been a bit better though. I also liked the breakfast served in their restaurant at the ground floor. Overall a great experience.

Location : Great ,right in middle of city with large lawns and without the noise of city.

Lobby : Well Maintained, though not furnished enough for a lobby meeting during business trip.

Staff : Old world but friendly and responsive.

Restaurant :Gulfam restaurant at the ground floor is good for meals but fails as a coffee shop.Image a hotel in the premium category ( five star they claim) not able to offer a capuchino or latte in this age.

Rooms : Baldy maintained, Bath rooms and fittings show age though staff seem to have done their best trying to keep it clean. Black spots on closed and bath tub betrays its age.

Furniture in the Room : 1.Old age CPT TVs with mostly free to air Channels. English news channel is expecting too much. 2. Upholstery of Chairs in the room are soiled and one would think twice before you would sit ( no other option once you have checked in). 3. 1st Hotel in quite a while that I have stayed that offer only one 500ml bottled water as complementary.

Toiletries : Average, Towels could have been retired few cycles ago.

Overall Not Value for Money , and a disappointment. The owners could have put some of the money they earn back in maintenance of the rooms to get this hotel to match outside upkeep. Maybe they had better use for the money earned. Together with wooden flooring and old world furniture there is an excellent opportunity for this hotel to be much better than what it is today.

I agree with a previous writer in that I would not want to stay anywhere else in Lucknow. Great location for visiting the sights in Lucknow and also quiet which for a light sleeper like me is of paramount importance.
The only slight problem was being charged a rather high fee for internet access.
