The hotel is impressive but expensive. The food and variety were good but really expensive.The rooms were nice but cold. The staff although friendly did not always know what they were supposed to be doing. We only stayed a night but missed the water fountains as we were not aware that they are only switched on at selected times.

As a Highlight to our Indian trip. The climax was always going to be travailing to Agra to see the Taj Mahal.
The Grand Wyndham Hotel was the perfect match, we felt like we were walking into a Palace, it is beautiful the grand entrance, to the manicured gardens and the huge spacious rooms set away from the main hotel buildings.
Unfortunately Agra town its self, is not great and rather run down, so we had lunch in the coffee shop, and dinner at their fine dining restaurant PAKHTOON.
Dinner was delicious and appropriate after seeing one of the most magnificent sights in the world.

Room Tip: We had a garden facing room

First impressions are of a lovely clean spacious and well appointed hotel. Our room was certainly comfortable and clean, however we had difficulty in working out the over-complicated computer system for turning on lights and it didn't work for drawing the curtains. The restaurant was extremely expensive for very ordinary food. We resented being asked to pay extra for Wi-fi when we had used this free in cheaper hotels. Some of the staff seemed unsure of what they were supposed to be doing. others fawned over us and hung around expecting constant tipping. The only high point was having the beautiful outdoor pool to ourselves.
We wouldn't be recommending this hotel to anyone.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay with Wyndham Grand, Agra and for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor.

We apologise for not being able to meet your expectations. Request you to please ask the hotel employees if you cant operate any equipment in whichever hotel you stay next.

We agree and feel bad also that we have to charge for the products and services provided but unfortunately we also need to cover the expenses. We are also slightly confused regarding your comments about our service staff because the ones who didnt serve you, you felt they did not know what to do and the ones who tried to take care of you, you felt they were doing so to get tips. Anyways we will definately try to improve wherever we should.

Regards,

Wyndham Grand Agra Team

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel as part of our Golden Triangle tour.Check in was quick and simple and the room was really nice with good high quality furnishings.The rooms were actually quite cold although we were given a fan heater and offered slippers for the tiled floors.It appeared that there was a aircon/heating system in the room that was not working.Breakfast buffet was good and the food in the cafe/bar was good in the evenings,Although we thought the Indian restaurant was very expensive for what it served.Overall a very nice hotel,but felt cold in many public areas as well as the rooms.

What a pleasant surprise when we first walked in, beautiful and elegant. Room was a decent size, very private, and excellent value online. The property is big, well kept with gorgeous lawns and the exterior blends in with the Taj as a backdrop. Food was a bit overpriced and not that great, service is excellent, we would stay here again for sure.
