“An Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I had booked a number of rooms for July 26 to 29, 2013 to accomodate self and family members coming from all over India,for a marriage.The rooms very spacious, well maintained & the housekeeping spic& span.Everyone had a great time & enjoyed the food,thanks largely to chef Dutta who takes a personal interest in each guest.Must mention the banquet manager Mr O P Shrivastava & Mr Tiwari,who really made our stay every bit enjoyable.

Room Tip: River facing rooms have a terrific view espically on the 7th floor

Stayed here on a business trip to Lucknow as my meetings were predominantly at this Hotel itself.

The Good:
- Location is great. Accessible to all the key markets a traveller would want to visit.
- Hotel visibly looks old. The management is trying very hard to keep it modern! Guess they need to do more.
- Rooms are again "nice but could be better"
- Food is great
- Service is very good. Staff is very polite and responsive.

The Bad:
- Expensive for what you get as a overall experience. Should be 20~30% cheaper
- Breakfast is just about OK.
- The Gym is a small room. Kindly of gives neglected feel. For a hotel of this size, they should spruce up the gym facilities.

The Ugly:
Nothing that I can mention:

Overall a nice experience. Great location to stay

the hotel is located in the center of the city , very near to Hazratganj, a place for food joints and shopping. Rooms are good but being a semi government property , food is just ok with average service.

Recently on a business trip I stayed at Clarks Avadh, Lucknow. The hotel is centrally located in Lucknow City. Pretty decent entrance and a grand lobby. One of the rare hotel in a big city which occupies such big space and is spacious.

The staff was courteous and helpful. The rooms were of decent size. The interiors of the room, the bed, mattresses, flooring and bath rooms require modernization and were giving a tired look. Same was the scene with the corridors, lift etc.

We had buffet breakfast, the spread was good and the food good. Ordered dinner and the biryani was ok.

Our room provided a good view of the river "Gomti" which is next to the hotel. The drizzle and the scene of Gomti gave a soothing relief.

Overall a good hotel to stay at.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of Gomti give good view

pretty average all round. i didn't eat the breakfast.
i hate paying for internet.
its definitely NOT the 5 star hotel that it is sold as but it met my basic needs.
I would recommend this as a stop over but not so much a place to stay for a holiday.

We were put up at Hotel Clarks Avadh by a friend who had selected this hotel as his wedding venue. Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel room was big, clean and equipped with all the necessary amenities such as wardrobe, writing desk, lamp, kettle, LCD TV, telephone, centralized AC, etc. Bathroom was huge with bath tub and 24*7 hot water. Hair dryer was available on request. Bed was comfortable. Only thing i did not like about the room was yellow lightening. It gave a dull gloomy feel to the room. I don't know why lot of hotels prefer using yellow lights and not white lights. It becomes really difficult to get ready and apply makeup with yellow lights.

Cannot comment on rates as the groom had booked tons of rooms and he must have surely got a decent deal on bulk booking.

Biggest drawback of this hotel was their service at all the wedding functions. The banquet service staff were clearly not interested to serve the guest. We didn't have a problem with self service but at least somebody should stand at the counter in case guests need any help. It was really funny to see only 1 waiter serving starters to a wedding party of more than 200 at a particular function. Most of the times buffet food was cold. Also they took a long time to refill empty trays. Moreover food for all the functions over a period of 2 days tasted same.

This hotel is a good choice for staying in Lucknow for its rooms and sleep quality. Food is not an issue in any Indian city. You will find cheaper and better quality food on Indian streets than any of these hotels. Hence better to just stay at Clarks Avadh on B&B basis and have rest of the meals outside. Would definitely recommend this hotel for accommodation. (But surely not for hosting parties and wedding unless they improve their banquet management)

I was pleasantly surprised with a few changes. Especially the breakfast buffet spread, it now matches the standard of a good hotel. Also wifi connectivity.

The food has always been good at both the Faluknama and the non veg thali I ordered in was simply yummy!

While it is not a modern hotel, there is a feeling of comfort and security when you stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Do negotiate on the rates. Not worth spending more than 5000-6000.
