I recently stayed at The Imperial Hotel whilst on a social/business trip to Delhi and i throughly recommend it!
On arrival i checked in promptly and was shown to my room by a lovely member of The Imperial team. The first impression of the hotel was very impressive! We walked through security and two doors with very friendly door staff and the lobby was fantastic! Even though i was in India there was a hint of it being British! Like home to home!
I upgraded to a heritage room and it was very nice. The room was spacious, a walk in wardrobe, fantastic views of the water feature and garden area. The bathroom again was very nice, with both bath and very spacious walk in shower. The products supplied were very good quality! The kingsize bed was ever so comfortable, and i slept in peace.
After settling down i went to explore the hotel, there are many photographs and paintings throughout the hotel and were very interesting from maharaja's to general's in the army all very regal and tastefully selected.
I had tea in the atrium and it a fabulous setting,when you look up there are windows everywhere and is very impressive the staff were professional and very accommodating anything you ask for isn't a problem.
After this i went to visit the spa where i had pre booked the Mirabhai Indulgence package. Firstly i went to the steam room for 10 minutes and then showered ready for my treatments!
Firstly i had a 90 minute body massage the 'Imperial depth' and wow it was amazing! The whole massage was an experience. The therapist was very experienced and i would surely recommend this to anyone stay there. The facial was included and was also very relaxing and good for the skin.
I purchased some 'Sufi' oils from the spa as the blends were very good and the essential oils in them were very calming.
For my dinner i went to the mouth watering spice route. The meal was divine from cocktails, prawn crackers, starters, main course and pudding! I would insist you visit this place when in Delhi.
In the morning i visited Bangla Sahib which is a sikh tempe in Delhi. The car was pre booked with the hotel and everything was perfectly punctual! The driver was polite and professional. What did really impress me was the fact i was slightly confused where to go so the driver came with me and guided me around the temple and showed me everywhere and explained it all to me! This was ever so helpful and i was very impressed by this.
On my return to the hotel i went for breakfast and decided to eat in the conservatory! Breakfast was delightful, i must recommend the masala tea and the mango booster shot!
On a whole the hotel was an amazing experience and well worth it if it's it your price bracket. The staff are polite, helpful and professional!
The hotel is fabulous and i will ensure i visit every time we visit Delhi. Full marks throughout!
