The hotel is amazing. The staff was very supportive and helpful. We celebrated Rakshabandhan there and they provided us Aarti and other stuff. The rooms are very spacious. Indeed, a royal experience. Everything was superb though it needs maintenance.

We booked the Luxurious Suite here and the room was spotless, beautiful, and pre-cooled on our arrival. On arrival, we were greeted with delicious welcome drinks and greeted warmly. Every time we left our room, we returned to find it cleaned and re-decorated, even if we only went for breakfast. The breakfast was a huge assortment of dishes, in both... More

Worth a visit and a stay in this beautiful property. It is relaxing and friendly. It's not quite as well looked after, and not quite as good, or polished, as I expected from the Taj Group. And because it attracted groups of Indian friends, it wasn't as quiet as I hoped, either.

Our overall experience at this Taj property was simply super! From the time of airport transfers, arrival, escort to the rooms, food quality etc was all very crisp and with a daft of warmth in the people service. We also had experience of a SPA treatment for a evening or sun down massage which was simple marvellous. The expertise of... More

Had an extended stay at this place during June 16. First element that stands out at this place is the heritage and history. Amazing to know how a 120 year old property is still being maintained five star level. Even though the upkeep is good yet there is lot of scope for improvement. Enjoyed the food thoroughly, they have a... More

The hotel is the ex-guesthouse of the Maharadja's palace, once it must have been magnificent but now both the building, the garden and the rooms have a markedly tired look. Attenton to detail is clearly lacking, while there was nothing inherently wrong, the place is definitely not up to the customary and expected standards of the Taj group. Some examples:... More
