Even though it's in the city, it is built in such a way that the garden on the inside is surrounded by the rooms and is the most... More

Exceptional boutique hotel. Beautifully appointed room. Good size. Beautiful art inside room and hotel. Hotel is peaceful with lovely gardens and common areas. Staff at hotel all exceptional. Nothing too much trouble for them. They were always friendly and accommodating with any request. Big smiles. A lot of things there are complimentary. Sad to leave! :-)

L'occitane toiletries, Apple docking station with lightning connector, flat screen TV, but creaky wooden cupboard doors and floor boards? Yup, this is our room for the night. The Anglo Indian Grand room with 4 post bed and 6 windows which can be opened...its a heritage boutique hotel with a modern twist. Having stayed the previous 2 nights at the nearby... More

I have to say, living in this hotel brings my soul closer to nature, back to the old days of comfort living. It's a truly amazing experience, from the beautiful color palettes, to the exquisite selection of furniture, to the beautiful garden landscaping,... More
