Situated opposite the gateway to India national monument this hotel is part of the history of the city of Mumbai.
The standard of service is excellent. Nothing is too much bother for the staff.
The pol area is small but the poolside restaurant offers a variety of meals as do the ten other restaurants the hotel offers.
The Harbour bar is the best of those on offer whilst the Starboard seemed quiet all the time.
Security given the terrorist attack is significant but is not obtrusive .
There are man more modern hotels in this area of Mumbai but I suggest none with the level of service and sense of history of this hotel.
