stayed for a night with my wife. had a confirmed booking from hotels.com, but the check in was a nightmare. they could not find our booking reference, in spite of my speaking to hotels.com and confirming the same to them. though the lady at the desk was accommodating and nice, there was a young manager on the adjacent desk whose manners were disturbing. anyway, it got sorted out after some time and we were allotted a room.
the standard rooms are small- there is very little space beyond the beds.
the bathroom is spacious and the dental kit as well as the shaving kit is already in place - you don't have to ask for it.
the best part about our room was a small balcony, fitted with comfortable chairs and overlooking the pool - nice sit out for the evening!
room service options as well as the quality of food they serve is good.
the breakfast at ' the pickwick' is disappointingly bad - not because there are not enough choices, but because the chef is terrible - any cooked item that was brought in was poorly cooked- namely eggwhite omelette, 'paratha'- underdone at some parts and burnt at others, dosa - which was soggy and underdone.
all in all a good stay.
tip- if you are indian and like to eat "paan", the best "paan" in delhi is available just behind the hotel - ask for panditji - an institution by itself, supplying paan (betel leaf with some interesting ingredients packed inside to leave a refreshing taste in your mouth) to all the well healed people in this extremely posh part of the town.
