Today we had afternoon tea in the Windamere hotel. We were looking forward to an afternoon tea; the fixed price of which equates to two typical dinners. Regrettably, it was very unsatisfactory. Some facts: no fork with cake, no spoon in sugercup, no matching cups...More

The Roys had invited us for dinner. We chose the continental menu. Great soup with toast and butter. Followed by Mutton roast in mint sauce. Buttered squash and spinach. Bread and butter pudding for desert followed by tea or coffee. Sad part was that most...More

Breakfast was in our package but we refused to eat it as it was so bad. The paranthas were cold, anaemic, and rubbery and when we pointed this out we were proudly informed by the chef that this is how they are served at the...More

Situated on Observatory Hill this Hotel is a time warp. Completely unspoilt and very well preserved, the interior is filled with photos, letters newspaper cuttings from visit of long (& not so long) ago. Not cheap as one would expect of such a fine establishment....More

Very overpriced at 600 rupees per person, quality of both food and service was abysmal. After being shown a printed out menu, we were taken through the pleasant looking courtyard away from the nice views to a windowless "parlour" with uncomfortable chairs spread out away...More

Four of us went to experience a high tea/afternoon tea in a typical English hotel, or so we thought! Paid 600Rs each for a very ordinary fare- cheese slice sandwiches, tomato sandwiches- 1 small round each, white bread, a slice of cake,(dry) a fresh scone...More
