Mayfair Lagoon
Ranked #2 of 58 Hotels in Bhubaneswar
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Bhubaneswar is not exactly a small town. But it is nowhere near many other state capitals and even non-capital Indian cities like Coimbatore, Kochi, Visakhapatnam, Indore and Agra etc. So the presence of a class hotel like Mayfair Lagoon in this city surprises and overwhelms visitors.

What is most impressive about this hotel is the space. Spread over a vast space of several acres, the hotel campus boasts of waterbodies (apart from swimming pool) , walking tracks , temple and even a sort of mini-forest. You can hear the birds chirping and the water splashing as you come out of the room for a leisurely stroll . Donot be surprised if you lose your way inside the hotel amidst its numerous lanes , tracks , corridors and the like.
Another surprise element is the lack of vertical spread. The hotel is more horizontal than vertical for its vast size . It has just one floor above the ground floor , like a magical palace from the pre-elevator era.
Then again , the variety of rooms , suits and cottages available in the hotel will impress any guest. The most impressive are the cottages with one side facing an inhouse lake. There is also a water fountain inside a pond. One can hear the pleasing sound of splashing water while walking on the lengthy corridors.
A guest who just stays in his room and checks out has not really seen the hotel. One must discover the hotel by moving everywhere inside , both indoor and outdoor. There are several beautiful stauettes , artworks and artefacts all over the place . Set in very strategic locations. they are numerous but non-repeatative. There are four or five restaurants and bars including two theme restaurants ; one for chinese food and the other a replicated road-side punjabi eatery called 'Nakli Dhaba' . Food quality was quite good although the breakfast was a somewhat subdued affair.
The hotel ferries its guests from the reception area to the cottages in electric cars . There are many rooms in the main building which will not need such transportation. There are also conference halls of various sizes and an open-air wedding reception area.
The hotel is located in a plush location surrounded by few other star hotels of the city. There is plenty of open space both inside and outside. The hotel campus seems to start from a nearby highway , but actually it doesn't. Somehow the approach road appears to be a part of the hotel with well maintained parking slots on bothsides of the road.
If the existence of this hotel in a lesser known state capital is a surprise , then it must also be told that the room tariff is also stiff for Bhubaneswar.

Room Tip: Take a pool side cottage if not beyond your budget.

the good things about the place a) the vegetation, which is terrific, b) the rooms which are very large and spacious, c) the bed which is good, d), the gym which is excellent and the guide is very helpful. e) and the breakfast buffet also was good but got very crowded

the not so good things: a) because it is all on a couple of floors ( my room was on the ground floor) it is a long walk for a business traveller who wants to get going quickly. on a holiday on the other hand it is great

the room service is very slow and undependable

i guess a lot of the business revolves around their own convention center which is right opposite. so if you are not part of that convention center, then i guess there may no great advantage in staying here?

Room Tip: near the reception! unless you are on a holiday, then close to the gym

The property while still very beautiful is beginning to show its age. The floor of the bathtub in our room was frayed for example! The service whilst good is not excellent.
The quality of food continues to be good . I like the pool though a trifle small and used it as I always do.

Room Tip: take a room in the center of the property

This hotel is really a good property which I always rate quite high in all my experiences in and outside India. I like the property layout, greenery, open landscaping, spacious rooms, good interiors, clean bathrooms, etc. Breakfast is good too. Best part is the availability of lounge bar, disco, coffee shop, restaurants, spa, etc. Worth the stay!

This was the third or fourth occasion when I stayed at Mayfair Lagoon - the ambience is truly unforgettable, the food is excellent and the breakfast is particularly memorable. I expect that most people who have stayed there earlier would not like to try any other hotel in Bhubaneswar!

While the facilities were as magnificent as ever, internet connectivity remains a sore point. In the Residents Lounge overlooking the swimming pool, I was offered an hour's browsing for Rs. 250/-, which appeared exorbitant, but I agreed since I had some urgent work. This system did not work despite several tries. Then the assistant offered to provide a pre-paid card, which was even costlier, but worked alright. The last straw was being billed for both services, though I had used the latter only because the former had not worked! My bill was corrected, but after an avoidable argument.

Unlike most hotels, Mayfair provides you with complimentary snacks in the room. When will they learn to provide complimentary internet connectivity?

Room Tip: First floor rooms offer better views, but the rooms are not accessible by elevator and the stairs ar...
