My husband and I stayed at the Oberoi at the end of our trip to India in December 2012. We had stayed in heritage hotels throughout the rest of our trip and so this one for us was going to be a very different style but we chose it for it's views of the Taj predominantly. We expected it to be good as the cost was relatively very high, but in fairness to this hotel it surpassed expectation in almost every way which is hard to acheive when rates are so high. Firstly, the room that we stayed in which was just one of the ordinary rooms was absolutely lovely and really was understated elegance but when we opened the door onto our balcony, we were really quite blown away that we could see the Taj so clearly and it looked magnificent.The hotel pool and grounds were really imaculate and the pool in particular was beautiful and it's surroundings felt very special. The staff in all areas of the hotel could not do enough to please but in a very unobtrusive way and we were looked after very well indeed. I had been ill for a few days before arriving at the Oberoi and got worse during my stay, the reception staff were fantastic and insisted that we kept our room all day until whenever we wanted to on our day of departure because they knew that I was ill, they were so nice to us and we cannot praise them enough. We ate in the Indian restaurant which was also excellent. Agra itself, does not have a lot to offer (Taj aside) and this is really the best way of experiencing a visit to the 'wonder !! All in all, we felt that this hotel was excellent value for money and really delivered on all counts - dont hesitate - BOOK IT !!
