This hotel really is in a time warp. Go before it fades. The beds were super comfy. We had hot water from our own hot water boiler and as much tea and cake as we wanted.
Despite comments in guide books we thoroughly enjoyed all the food.
Great staff - they advised us that a trip to Tiger Hill was only replicating the view from the hotel, but would need us getting out of bed at 4:30am.
Flicking through the photo albums it looks like the hotel was last furnished in the 1950s. This is apparent in the slightly dishevelled furniture, so go before it is modernised by some global hotel franchise and its charm is destroyed
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are one of the oldest (and prize winning) Colonial Hotels in India - with reviews from the Asia Pacific National Geographic Magazine and The Sunday Times of London. We offer truly authentic and original suites from the colonial tea planter days, with absolutely FULL BOARD (4 MEALS PER DAY). Our hotel is world renowned, with many famous film stars and other celebrities finding a path to our door. Truly a "destination and not just another hotel".

We have both Colonial Suites & Cottages, as well as standard and superior accommodation. ... more less
