I was on a 3 week tour of India and had booked various styles of hotels. But the Grand lived up to its name!! We were greated by very friendly and helpful staff who were only too obliging to our needs. The large rooms are very clean and comfortable and are like a small suite with what they are serviced with. The beds are very comfortable and a good nights sleep was had after a long days travelling. The rooms are in a courtyard configuration
The food was very good and it was nice to have some western food to just get our stomachs away from the spicey food for a day, Although there is Indian food if you require it. The grounds are huge with a lovely park attached to the hotel with statues in. There is also a flower garden with walks and fountains that light up at night. This area is excellent to be able to chill out in after the hustle and busle of outside.
The swimming pool was huge and it was with regret that I did not have the time to use it. This hotel is vey close to the Taj Mahal and you could walk it at a push. Dont forget to get to the Taj early for the ques.
Having Travelled to many countries throughout the world this hotel come in my favourite Top 10, and my only regret was that I was only there for the day. If I return to Agra I shall longer
