This was a beautiful Edwardian-era hotel, unspoilt, with marvellous greens and quads for sitting out and afternoon drinks, very helpful and friendly staff, swimming pool, and excellent restaurant for breakfast and dinner, all very reasonably priced. Well located and an oasis of calm. Highly recommended.More

I would recommend you go out of the hotel and get a tuk tuk driver to take you to Coffee go Day which is close to the hotel . There are lots of these coffee bars around.
Hello: we are planning to visit Agra this November and were thinking of staying at this hotel as per good reviews on trip advisor's web site... Are all rooms ( Deluxe or Chamber of Prince) situated on ground floors? Which rooms are upstairs? Is there an elevator(lift) or just stairs only? What is included in Manager's reception and what time it starts? What is included in Breakfast ? ( eggs/waffles,toast,butter,jam,tea/coffee,fresh fruits/fresh fruit juices,yogurt etc)? Are there any indian dishes also in breakfast? What time is for breakfast? Half Board means Breakfast + Dinner? We can have dinner at Shenshah restaurant and is there any way to find out the menu? What about water bottles? Are they also included with room charge and how many water bottles are given per room per day? Is there a SAFE in the room? Thanks a million for your kind reviews. with best regards. Is there anyway to contact this hotel or reservation department by e mail or their web site? Thanks.
