The result?

An enchanting blend of the old and new. To ensure we’re ready to unveil these changes during the last few months of the year, certain areas of the Hotel will be closed from the last week of September until the reveal week of 10- 15 October 2022. During this time, guests will be able to enjoy Breakfast, lunch and dinner at our Indian Fine dining Restaurant, Bombay Brasserie. It is to be noted that the Cigar lounge will be removed permanently, however, the Terrace will be available as an alternative location for smoking. 

We can’t wait to show off our special brand of elegance and heritage-inspired glamour!

Amazing from beginning to end.
I was slightly disappointed with my room when I arrived as it was on a lower floor and a bit gloomy. The Front Of House staff where brilliant and soon sorted this out . They are all super in FOH , just one comment you have a trainee in the team who really should have a name badge with her name on it as well. HR need to look at this. I would like to thank Clinton who was very helpful as well. The room was brilliant 1602 and all services to room excellent. The staff in the Bar area where very attentive and looked after us well. The food was wonderful and I look forward to coming back for more . I was disappointed with the Swimming pool . Do you not use Chlorine. ? Overall a great stay , wonderful staff and Food. Mention to Concierge as well.
