In 1950, three years after Independence, an Indian family was talked into building a hotel with a British aesthetic, and the result was a winner: tasteful yet unpretentious, in a central yet quiet location. The old-fashioned charm starts on the front lawn strewn with cane chairs, and in the lobby, with its two swing staircases. Standard rooms are medium-size, but all rooms facing the pool have either a window seat, terrace, or balcony. Rooms in the newer wing have plasma televisions, marble floors, and immaculately designer furnishings.

Very much gracious living in the old style. Good rooms, excellent staff and service. Main restaurant looked expensive but Pickwick's (where the excellent breakfast is served) is an acceptable, good value alternative.
