We stayed in the Tower Wing of the Taj for part ( we had to leave at 1 30am) of our last night in India. Our room faced the Gate of India and was spacious ( nor butler button in evidence like the Oberoi!) altough the bathroom was surprisingly small , We regretted that we had so little time to spend here as the view was quite stunning.
The service and food in the retaurant were very disappointing. The service was extremely slow and it took a long time for each of us to be served the result being that the food was cold when it arrived. It was the most expensive food we ate in India and was certainly some of the poorest. We would not have eaten there again had we been staying longer.
The hotel had the feel of a big business consortium where individuals were not particularly important. MOST DISAPPOINTING!
