“ENJOY THE ROOMS ONLY”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Please do not expect anything more than the spacious rooms only.
Booked directly with hotel on phone.welcome was warm but once we checked in,the attitude of staff changed suddenly giving an impression as if they have made up their mind that we may not be a repeat guests. Very unprofessional approach. If you want to use the spacious rooms for sleeping purpose only and do not expect any service from staff, hotel is good,rooms are spacious,neat and clean,clean bathrooms,very well located in posh Lawrence road/Mall road crossing. The only problem is staff needs to be more professional,courteous,well mannered and service oriented. All the investment made by the owner is going waste just because of unprofessional staff. A very surprising,annoying and uncalled for remark from around 25 yrs old Reception executive Mr. Pankaj,who was checking us out was " In three star hotels,you get computerised receipt " without realising that I am a 62 year old guest,ignorant of my background,implying that I have stayed first time in a 3 star hotel in my life. Thnx Mr Pankaj for educating me at this age. I need to meet people like Mr. Pankaj more often to enlighten me.
On the whole,there are better options available in and near Golden temple at much cheaper rates if you settle for little smaller rooms. After all we hire hotels at tourist places just to sleep not to be in rooms the whole day. Pros: spacious rooms,location Cons: You can,t expect to even talk to their staff except Liftman Nepali guy Tegh Bahadur. Have a nice visit.

Room Tip: Rooms on 3rd floor are carpeted. Good for winters. Prefer rooms on backside.

Dear Sir

I apologize for posting this late reply (as we recently started the tool of management response) but i assure you we read your review at the time of your posting and we forwarded all your concerns and points made by you to the hotel management/promoter .

We are extremely sorry for the irresponsible and unprofessional behavior shown by Mr. Pankaj who was not a permanent employee then, we agree time to time we have such a situation where professionalism lacks in some of the staff members as its difficult to get experienced staff whenever required. We are not justifying the poor service offered to you but just trying to explain you that we do try to make these lesser experienced staff members professional but its unfortunate for us that you had to bear their unprofessionlism and we regret it and apologize for it.

Hope you will again give us a chance and visit soon.

Being personal guests of the owner, we may have got the best of the best. But I am sure that even otherwise, this hotel provides excellent service, comfort, good quality food and much more. Highly recommended to any visitors to Amritsar.

They don't build that stuff anymore. Large rooms, walk-in bath tubs ! Good location and with the 'aam papad' and 'Amritsari Kulcha' restaurants next door, we had a delicious experience. Stayed one night - very good overall experience, will go back.

Our choice was between Hotel Lawrence and Hotel Ritz Plaza. I wanted to stay at Ritz Plaza since it had a swimming pool and a lawn but the day we got to Amritsar, it was so cold that there was no point of a swimming pool or a lawn. Anyway we went ahead and checked out Hotel Lawrence before we went to Ritz and to my surprise it was SO clean, open spaces, BIG rooms (really big rooms). I was very surprised when I entered the lobby, it had so much space, probably more than a 5 star hotel. Then we entered the room and oh my god, what a huge room. It had two couches, a small dining table for two, cupboards, a clean bathroom (oh, what a relief - honestly thats the one thing I need - a clean bathroom - when I go on a holiday), a mini fridge, an LED TV, big windows (the view isnt that great though - but we were lucky that the weather was beautiful and it was raining), and guess what - FREE WIFI! The room service was a tad bit slow but it didnt bother me too much because I was SO happy with the hotel in terms of space, cleanliness etc. The food in the restaurant downstairs was great, the alcohol is not too expensive (approx Rs. 200/- for a 60ml scotch - also they have offers on alcohol and happy hours). It also at a central location, everything is a 10minute drive and the best eating places (Surjit, Kanha, Lubhaya Churan) is all walking distance.

All in all it was a great experience! I would definitely stay there again if and when I go back to Amritsar.

The bed cover was torn at various places. Towels were dirty.
