Room is reasonable size, facing the pool. On first night (Wednesday night) there was loud party on pool ground until late in the night. Otherwise is quiet. Internet (wifi) is free, but very slow and did not work properly. Breakfast is okay. Order room service, the service boy tried to con Rupee200, by over charging. Be very careful with this.

This hotel was very close to Taj Mahal in Agra. The room was very clean, nicely decorated and wide. Moreover, the breakfast (buffet) was very good. We feel comfortable all the time. We spent two nights while doing a long tour through the nort of India.

This hotel has a good restaurant, nice public areas, a pool, spa and shop. The room itself was pretty average, the bedlinen was threadbare and there was a pervading smell of cooking unfortunately. Having said that the spa was able to provide a good service painting mendi hands and the shop though expensive by indian standards was well stocked. An... More

Bringing a team of 14 here after a two week hike, the Retreat provided just the rest and relaxation needed. The hotel is clean and has easy excess to Agra, the Taj is only a short walk away should you choose to brave the streets. Failing that there is never a short supply of transport out side. The hotel arranged... More

This hotel on first impression was not what we expected . Pool was good but Wi-Fi very poor which proves disapointing when travelling with teens and used to UK standards. We asked for coffee and it was awful and we didn't want to sit in restaurant so encouraged them to allow us to sit in reception area. Room was disapointing... More

Excellent hotel located near Taj Mahal in Agra ! Hotel staff was courteous and accommodating ! Especially the girl at the front desk ! Rooms were clean and decent size.
