Our first thought on arriving at the hotel was that it was pure Disney: a pastiche of an old palace built on a fresh site out of town. That was before we went visiting and realised that all the new hotels were the same. It's a pity that no architect has managed to blend the old with the new.
The hotel is large and spacious with good sized rooms. There is no lift but plenty of ground floor rooms. The rooms are very clean and well maintained, with tea and coffee making facilities. The selection of teas was good but the instant coffee pretty dire. We always take a pot of instant in our suitcase.
In the bathroom, there was no plug in either the wash basin or bath and there were no signs of there ever having been installed. Hoe a gentleman is supposed to shave or a lady wash her smalls without a plug is a mystery to me.
It took quite some effort to get them. It was partly language; in anglo-indian a bath plug is a 'stopper' and partly proceedure: someone has to come and see if there is a bath stopper and then someone else brings one. It was the same proceedure with bath robes.
We dined in the hotel one evening. The (Indian) food was good and service cheerful and smiling.
There was a buffet breakfast with a good selection of both Indian and European choices. The service was Indian but overall a good hotel.
