We just loved this hotel.
From the minute you arrive you are treated like royalty.
Ladies you get a little red spot on your forehead to bring you safety and good luck and a welcome cup of tea.
/the rooms are lovely either looking across to the Taj Majal or over the beautiful gardens (we actually watched a wedding last night that was taking place in the gardens - amazing).
From start to finish, whichever member of the team of staff you meet, you will feel so welcome and at home - they are to be commended and valued by the owners because they are truly amazing.
Breakfast is great - fabulous choice of food and the chef comes to see you to see if you are happy (he will even give you some recipes if you ask him).
The gardens are beautiful (just a word of warning - if you want to use the pool in January prepare yourself because it is cold).
I have never seen such a selection of food on a hotel menu at night before - every type of food from Indian, Thai, European, snack, buffet, feast - there is absolutely something for everyone and in copious amounts. Make sure you are hungry. The waitors are superb. We met a young man who is going to get married in October - he was wonderful - friendly, interesting and he even escorted us into the gardens to allow us to watch the wedding.
We got a little welcome selection of cakes when we arrived in our room and the room service team were on hand all the time if we needed anything.
I could go on but in summary, stay here you will not regret it I am sure.
We are already looking forward to our meal tonight.
