It was my first experience at this heritage property. Oberoi is known for their excellent experience. And I wasn’t disappointed. They have a staff that considers customer first. Temperature controlled swimming pool was a big attraction. Food was delicious.

This historic building means that they cannot make lots of modern adaptions but it was still a beautifully comfortable stay in a large corner room and the staff could not have done more for us. Look out for Prateek - he was a complete star....More
