This was a distinctively styled place with the rooms having Tibetan décor. The views were good and the meals simple homestyle Indian. It had a pretty garden dotted with statues and each room was named individually. Ours was the Prime Minister's Suite. The bathrooms were adequate and we did suffer some blackouts (because of the rain, I assume). The Wi-Fi... More

So much history in this Hotel, A family hotel not a business one. The staff very helpful. Bathrooms could be made more efficient. Adding more amnieties would spoil the heritage character. Overall very good experience.

The first impression of this hotel was very favourable as the antique furnishings made for a pleasing ambience and we were welcomed with a hot drink and settled into our room. We subsequently changed our room because of potential noise from other guests though we later discovered that we were the only ones staying there! This change was probably a... More

We arrived on a grey misty and very cold afternoon at the Grace hotel. It's a 200 year old colonial style manor house on the hillside. The car has to be parked a little way below the hotel and there is a short steep walk to the gates, passing the ubiquitous cow on the path. You really need a car... More

We have stayed at many Welcomheritage properties but Grace Cottage was a real disappointment. I a surprised that Welcomheritage have allowed such a badly situated and run down property to be part of their chain. Situated in a very narrow lane, if unlucky you can take upto 10 mins to travel 50 mtr. in your car. the pictures shown on... More

We've just returned from India and stayed two nights at this charming hotel. Very nice room tastefully furnished if a little shabby and with a beautiful view. The room had a good heater that kept us warm during the cold evening. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We opted for vegetarian dinners which were very nicely presented and tasty.... More

Firstly I want to say that I love quirky and I love welcome heritage properties but for me this lacked charm. The property itself is pretty but there is no where for guests to sit apart from directly outside of the bedrooms themselves which meant the large Indian guest party that was staying there the same time as we were,...

Seeing the welcom heritage tag on this hotel, one had certain expectations as to basic upkeep of the property but we were quite disappointed. Very basic bathroom fittings (unbranded), bald bulbs hanging without even basic lamp holders and torn and dirty curtains do not constitute decor or heritage. Add to that the broken and cracked concrete decorative columns in the... More
