This is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the Fort area in a wonderful colonial building. The size of the property makes it feel like a home rather than a hotel and as this is the end of their season we were the only guests. I can't thank the staff and wonderful manageress enough for everything they did to... More

This is the type of hotel that I personally adore. A place that has character, personality and that offers all the comforts of home. Le Colonial it is!! Great location, very attentive staff, specially, the two young men that work around the hotel, serving meals, drinks, and attending to all your needs. A hotel with delicious food, comfortable rooms and... More

This was the first stop on our trip and we arrived exhausted and slept most of the day. Check in, performed on one of the sofas, was swift, with hot towels and a cooling drink.

You definitley get the feeling that you are in an historic house as soon as you walk inside Le Colonial. The stories about the place abound, along with old photographs and documents on the walls, and though it's all been updated to modern standards, the place has "good bones" as our architect friends would say, and they kept as much...

We have travelled enough in India to realise that there are several foreign owned hotels charging extreme prices but not delivering on basics whereas the cheaper hotels are maintaining clean rooms with good wifi. The other issue is you can clearly have different experiences depending on the room you are given and the service. We moved rooms due to a... More
