Positive Reviews

Highly evocative setting

With grand stairways, labyrinthine corridors, ornate public rooms, and more gilded marble than you can shake a billiard cue at; it's small wonder most guests are completely blown away by the aristocratic grandeur of this most regal of hotels. Indeed, it is quite common for visitors to lose several hours taking photos of the interior and exterior of this jaw-droppingly beautiful building.

Dining is a decadent treat

Reviewers absolutely love dining in the hotel's opulent restaurant - not for the food, but rather because the huge venue retains all the grandeur of its former incarnation as a formal ballroom. Having the food served in solid silver lotus shaped dishes from the Raj era is, travellers say, the height of decadence. Drinks in the billiard room-cum-bar are the icing on the cake.

Negative Reviews

Some areas need upgrading

Whilst visitors are suitably impressed by the undoubted grandeur and evident heritage of this building, reviewers believe some areas are clearly in need of smartening up. The guest bathrooms are frequently highlighted as a point of concern in this respect, as are some of the lesser visited public areas. Even the once resplendent gardens, travellers note, look like they're in need of some diligent care and attention.

No Internet

Frustrated travellers are dismayed to discover virtually no Internet access is made available at this hotel. Reports suggest there is a Wi-Fi signal of sorts somewhere in this vast building; however, it is very rarely, it seems, offered to guests.

Beware of monkeys

Cautious guests note that monkeys, persistently hungry and on the lookout for food, roam the grounds here almost at will. It's good practice, reviewers say, to lock the windows in the accommodations as this is often the first place they head for when searching for goodies.
