“loved the hotel .... but its little far from centre”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Stayed here for one night in August 2013 when we went to Amritsar with family (infant included).
The plus points of this hotel:
(a) Good and clean rooms (newly built hotel)
(b) Comfortable bed and ample space in the room for dinig, study, etc
(c) clean bathrooms
(d) great pricing of room rents

Few inconvenient aspects includes:
(a) a little off the main attractions
(b) lot of construction happening around the hotel
(c) breakfast can be lot better

overall I would stay at this place next time I am in Amritsar ...

We went to Amritsar on 18th Oct, 2013 for 2 Nights stay and booked Best Western Merrion through Cleartrip. The experience at the hotel was excellent in terms for value, service and staff. As soon as we reached hotel, there were lots of Guests at the reception and the way the front desk staff (Raman, Nitika, Rabia and Michael) were handling the requests was tremendous. We were handed over room cards within 5-10 mins and they also upgraded one of our rooms to Executive Suite. The rooms were nice, spacious and clean with all the amenities. The house keeping staff (one of them was Ravinder) were pretty quick in their service and always smiling. I would highly recommend stay at Best Western Merrion and would love to visit again. Once again thanks to all the staff members, in case if I have missed name of any staff member who made my stay memorable at the hotel.

Hotel is nice and approx 15 minutes by taxi from Amritsar Railway station. Service is fine but slow particularly during breakfast. Also railway station pick up was delayed and we had to wait for pick up for 25 minutes and had to call hotel twice. stayed in executive suite which was spacious. hotel is neat and clean. Swimming pool is really small. but overall had a comfortable, relaxing stay with family and njyed.

Best western merrion is centrally located & about 5 Kms from the Temple. It is pretty close to the national highway
The rooms are modern and clean. Washroom is well maintained.
The staff was courteous and attentive. We had booked a double room and we allocated a twin room. When we mentioned our concern to the staff - they promptly provided a different room.

Food in the restaurant is good quality, however we felt the service was little slow. The price is on the higher side, but there are plenty of options available across the street to suit your taste buds!!

Overall a good experience

We stayed here for a business cum personal tour recently. It is situated in developing region (Ranjit avenue road) near by Green Avenue which would be the one of the posh locality of Amritsar in coming days.. Though you may find equivalent properties now in Amritsar but It has made its place in the town. It has a amazing food at its restaurant. They have two restaurants, one at first floor and second at roof top with a mini pool which would give you a night city view with a pool ambience. my experience was a bit great as I was upgraded to the executive suite. Room looked old but was clean. Few things were not in place like broken lamps etc and even bathroom's door lock was broken. But, as I said other things were so good, we were forced to ignore them....

After lot of research online for one night stay in amritsar , and with advises from fellow Tripadvisor neitizens, i homed on to BEST WESTERN MERRION. I drove to amritsar and was well recieved at hotel as i had already booked the hotel online through their website. Good reception with valet parking(ample parking space).
Following were the plus points of this hotel:
(a) I was given an option for upgradation of room with additional charges, which was nominal and worth it. i stayed in executive deluxe room.
(b) Great room space. As i was with my family and kids, so ample space for them to enjoy their stay and comfortable bed.
(c) Great bathroom with jacuzzi.
(d) Unimaginable comfort in hotel.
(e) Well stocked room mini firdge/bar.
(f) Hotel is well located , good hotels and places around.
(g) I was here for golden temple visit and instead of taking my own car , i hired an auto for Rs 280 bugs for to golden temple and back in night. it took 20 mins one way journey . So u arent that far off from golden temple.
(h) Complimentary breakfast.
(i) Quick billing
(j) Hospitable staff.

Some negative points:
(a) A complimentary fruit bowl is given to guests, which was bit disappointing. I mean to say size and auantity , its just a mere formality coz it had just small four pieces of watermelon, 4 pc of banana...This was big laughing thing, as with fam,ily of 4 u feel disappointed. My suggestion to hotel with be to improve on this. Either u take off , don't give, in case u wanna continue please increase to a sizable portion.
(b) Breakfast the big disappointment was the louse staff Miss jaspreet. i m sorry to say but the response was so poor form her, in case u want water for 4 people , she will come once and pour only in one glass, again u have to call her to pour in second glass and so on...very very pathetic approach from her.
(c) The taste of breakfast served was good, but variety was miniscule. I have seen many other hotels like Lemontree, clarks etc, they have good variety. So i can suggest them to improve on them.

Rest this hotel is an excellent place to stay in case you visit Amritsar. Thumbs up to staff and management of hotel. U guys are grt!!!
Just one advice, if possible provide some car washing facility on nominal charge to guest like us those who visit from such far off place so that we can get our cars in order after a long trip and can good washed car during halt of car at your parking.
Thanks for your hospitality...

Room Tip: Stay on 5th floor , u get good view of Amritsar city.
