As arranged the driver was waiting for us at the airport arrivals as promised with placard in hand. Good start! Beware, we had a slight problem with a complete stranger taking our bags to the car and then asked for money although the driver made no attempt to discourage it. Minor glitch.
After about an hour drive we arrived at the hotel. First impressions were very pleasing! Just to give you an idea, marble floors, chic interiors, very clean and tidy, spacious, and a nice touch of luxury.
Regarding our room (102), we had a very nicely sized one with tons of room with a balcony overlooking Garden Road. The service provided by the hotel was top notch: a same day laundry service was available with pristine results, a 24 hour room service, a decent basic breakfast and the reception staff were helpful especially the lovely young ladies.
The location of Ascot couldn't have been any better for all the main sights. Just a short 10 min walk to the Gateway Of India and The Taj Palace Hotel.
Check out Voodoo nightclub for an added treat to your holiday, you will find out why for yourself!!
Be sure to take a leisurely stroll down Colaba Causeway with the view to buying everything in creation from the very welcoming street vendors including knock off aftershaves, magic drums, inflatable peanut balloons and then finishing off with a chicken Maharaja Mac at McDonalds.
On to the subject of food, we ate at some nice places including The Taj Palace, Mings Chinese and Theobrama bakery. One place that wasn't as good was Cafe Mondegar where unfortunately I ate some sausages that didn't agree with me and I ended up getting a stomach upset the next day and made plenty of trips to the toilet being sick.
The only down side of the time spent in Mumbai was on our departure. The taxi driver provided by the hotel firstly took us to the wrong airport, then after getting to the correct airport we then were dropped off at the wrong terminal building.
All in all, a very pleasureable stay and I would recommend this hotel to anybody. We are in fact looking to stay again in this very hotel next year, all being well.
