We stayed here for two nights after the flight from London, before starting our tour of northern India. We were upgraded to a suite on the fourth floor with a big sitting room and large, powerful shower. The hotel is calm and quiet with peaceful grounds and has a real feeling of grandour and India's colonial past (see photographs). It was scrupulously clean, both in our room and in all the public areas. A great place to stay after an overnight flight. But the pool, though attractive, was too cold to swim in early March .
Although it was about an hour's taxi ride from the airport around lunchtime, the route is interesting and mainly through the tree-lined boulevards of New Delhi. It only took 40 minutes back for an early morning flight. Located close to the Old Delhi area, this hotel felt very safe. All the staff were helpful, pleasant and offered good advice. No problems changing sterling travel cheques at a reasonable rate.
We had dinners in the garden restaurant where there was a good choice of Indian and international dishes. If you prefer less spicy Indian dishes you have only to tell the waiter as they are all cooked just for you. But, like all hotels in India, the wine was very expensive at approaching INR3000 (£40) a bottle or about £5 for a (very) small glass. Breakfast buffet was good, with eggs and breads cooked to order.
Thoroughly recommended: we will return the next time we visit Delhi.
