A very historic place, with a most impressive lobby area and sitting room. Rooms comfortable, wifi passable. The food was OK - the Indian cuisine was a little too toned down (designed for Western palates, I guess). I prefer my Indian food to be spicy, as the locals do. I am not sure I rate it as highly as many... More

Fabulous room. Thought we had been given the VIP suite by mistake. Separate sitting room and dining area. Beds so comfortable it was difficult to get up! Reception areas are so attractive and beautifully maintained. Food excellent and hotel just off the main drag which means you can walk into town centre which is very European with its walker precinct.... More

Stayed at the hotel for my honeymoon. Superb place and has a typical heritage feeling. The room was a royal treat with wooden flooring and large king size bed. It had a colonial charm to it which was mesmerizing. The view in the morning from the garden is beautiful with the Himalayas shadowing the city with their majesty. The hotel... More
