Please read my earlier review of the same hotel...it would be mostly consistent with what we felt this time as well.
They are very efficient with reservations- though it didn't translate into the suite we had been promised by reservation staff. They took care of it, it did take some time though.
We had been very nicely advised about the ongoing works at the hotel and had been assured even before we reached Amritsar, that they would be stopped should it become too disturbing.
And they were true to their word- very impressed.
The pool is beautifully maintained.
The food could do with a major overhaul. It seems they have lost the poached egg guy :-)...as the ones served to us were missing the yolks completely. There were other mixups with the food and the chef Bibeck did try, but it has to be the concerted effort of everyone involved.
I would like to repeat(as i say in my other reviews as well) that these hotel chains are doing a great job, trying to get hotels and comforts we take for granted in big cities, to small but very touristy destinations. This was lacking earlier in Indian cities. Hopefully they will not let standards down, thinking it's ok to let go of somethings, just because true competition is missing!
Staff to commend:
Deep, Kamal, Naval, Upendra, Mandeep and Amar
