Having stayed here previously and loved it I booked again for a birthday celebration, we were upgraded to a suite and then further upgraded by Amin to a 2 roomed apartment which was beautiful, thank you . Breakfast overlooking the courtyard is stunning , we would have loved to have used the spa before breakfast but as it didn’t open until 11am and we were on a tight schedule it wasn’t to be , we will be dining in your restaurant on 2nd February so will see you then and be back to stay with you again asap , thank you again

First visit to a Taj Hotel and I can’t say that I could be more impressed by the level of service, the quality of service and friendliness of all the staff. I could not recommend it highly enough and will return. My congratulations to how Tata develop their business and the ethos that is clear is core to staff behaviour. It started from the concierge to Frderica on reception! Well Done.

We visited the hotel with my partners elderly parents and were wonderfully looked after, including an room upgrade! The hotel was beautiful, the staff friendly and really helpful and the food excellent. The one thing that would make me reluctant to return was the lack of obvious environmental considerations. There were plastic cups for water in the spa, and no signs in the bathrooms to indicate that towels will only be replaced if they are placed in the shower as many other hotels do to save water. The shower and hair products were all in single use plastic bottles instead of dispensers. I am sure there are things going on in the background but a luxurious experience should not come without consideration for the environmental impact. Taj is a prestigious hotel chain and I feel should be leading the way in making the industry more sustainable! Many thanks Jo and Kevin Scarpe
