Positive Reviews

Historic architecture

Built more than a century ago, the hotel showcases British colonial style with impressive architecture and décor. Guests are blown away by the hotel’s heritage and appearance, remarking on the feeling of royalty that permeates throughout. The hotel grounds are also said to be impressive to look at and are immaculately tended to.

Excellent customer service

Guests are warmly welcomed and offered a high standard of customer service during their stay, according to reports. The front of house staff members receive much praise, while guests are impressed with the restaurant serving staff, too.

Great location

The hotel is situated in the heart of Agra, a detail guests are quick to note. In addition to offering quick and easy access to shops, markets, and restaurants, the hotel also sits within easy driving distance of both the Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal. In fact, both of these iconic landmarks are reported to be visible from the hotel’s rooftop terrace.

Negative Reviews

Ageing in-room facilities

Although the rich history of the hotel proves enticing, guests report that this long and storied past can impact comfort levels. Reviews point out that the bathrooms are sometimes impaired by their age, with guests complaining that bathtubs have seen better days. Meanwhile, the antique furnishings, while reportedly impressive to look at, are not all that comfortable. Ageing TVs and a spotty Wi-Fi signal are also bugbears that guests have.
