Historical Traveller Reviews of The Manor Hotel
Feeling Cossetedfrom AnnaFrance
A great base to call home in Indiafrom Max25
The Manor essentially became the base camp on our trip - we started off there pre-Rajasthan, returned pre-Varanasi and returned finally from Kerala prior to our London return. In this role it excelled - the team couldn't have been more helpful in organising drivers, confirming train and plane times, holding onto excess luggage we didn't want to lug around, and catering packed meals for us to take on our journeys with us.
Always a warm welcome, The Manor is a green oasis of tranquility in the madness of Delhi. There is a subtly colonial air about it, but it's contemporary and efficient. The food is excellent - we particularly liked the authentic Indian food on the menu. The bedrooms and large, the beds excellent, the bathrooms wall-to-wall marble.
Couldn't recommend a better place to stay in Delhi.
Not bad at all but have seen betterfrom mogu
Our room at the Manor was quite small, and rather dark. (It was the cheapest room.) Not much of a view. Found a couple of stains on the wall and carpet, though not so obvious. The bathroom looked a bit tired. There was no bathtub, and the shower room was a bit small.
However the garden was spacious and beautifully kept. Food was a bit costly but tasted good. They have two adorable dogs who are friendly. I liked the neighborhood as well. It is in a high-class residential district which is peaceful and calm.
The staff are efficient and helpful. The Manager was a very nice person.
Their limousine services are very expensive compared to the usual taxis which you can catch on the streets. However pick-ups to and from the airport were free, and they provide a fancy black car with a good-looking chauffer. They gave us mineral water and allowed us to pick our favorite CD on the way.
Overall hotels in Delhi are overpriced. Our personal advice is that you to leave Delhi quickly and go off to the beautiful and colorful Rajasthan area.
Peaceful oasis in Delhifrom CyU
Reviewer: Christina and Uddy
We had a lovely stay at The Manor. From the moment we arrived, which was 2:30 a.m. as a result of a delayed flight, the staff were so warm and friendly. They immediately offered us what turned out to be the best tasting chamomile tea. We think about it still. The rooms, while a bit worn around the edges, are clean and beautifully designed with all the modern amenities and great sheets. We were even offered a free upgrade during our stay. Breakfast on the lawn was splendid--food and ambience perfect. It was hard to believe that the chaos of Delhi was just a few kilometers away. While our friends in Delhi thought we were a bit out of the way as far as sightseeing goes, they certainly praised the beauty and peace which abound at this tiny oasis within Delhi.
s chaosfrom NicholasHelsinki
The Manor is like a nice big family house. The building is surrounded by a good sized family garden in the New Friends Colony just fifteen minutes from India Gate by taxi or auto-rickshaw. The suites are comfortable and well designed, while the standard rooms could be a little bigger.
The restauarant is excellent. The dining room overlooks the sunlit garden. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks at the bar are very good being much better that the stuffy overpriced fare at the Oberoi and other big hotels.
Staff are really helpfull and the manager surprised us with a generous practical spirit that I have seldom seen in any hotel.
After a day on the road or sightseeing in Delhi this is a true haven.
Both of us give top marks to the hotel although there were some small drawbacks, but in Delhi you have to accept that the noise from traffic and railways pierces the walls and windows at odd times during the night. Amanresorts manages the hotel with a high standard of professionalism. We understood that they will be moving to a new hotel in Delhi in a few months and that a new hotel operator will take over. This will result in a renovation of the building and the rooms, the need for which is beginning to show.
We would make a strong recommendation to stay here in this quite, well run small hotel.
The Manor Excellent Choicefrom RGFSavannah
A Gemfrom MB747
Design, comfort, service, food-- the Manor has it all. The small size of the hotel (12 rooms) makes for a more personal stay than at larger hotels. We checked out some other hotels while we were in Delhi (including the Imperial) and we were pleased with our choice.
An oasis of calmfrom LHRTripper
One small note of complaint, the room I stayed in needed a bit of a refresh as some of the furnishings were beginning to look at little tired.
I used The Manor as a stop over when catching my flight back to London. The process was seemless, I was met from on the platform from my train and delivered to the airport in the morning. Delhi can seem chaotic and intimidating. If you are a fairly well heeled tourist, The Manor will insulate you from this whilst you acclimatise and provide a good base from which to see Delhi.
A calm place but at a pricefrom WycliffeJT
Excellent classy hotelfrom FrenchyVal
The only drawback is its location (South of delhi), but hence the reason why it is so quiet too, as it is located in a posh suburb, and away from the bustle of Delhi. And if you like shopping the staff will take you to some special shops. I highly recommend it.
Top Local Tips for New Delhi
Use a car rental company with a driver We called Sanjay Kaushik at Rajputana Holiday Makers in Jaipur who arranged the car and english speaking driver for us to tour around and between the three cities Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.A good man and an excellent service. You can find them on the net.
Location of Hotels Better not to take any hotel in "Channabazar" market area
Humayan Tomb - go there Humayan Tomb was a miniature Taj...thugh not that small. It was beautiful and none of the crowds that the Taj Mahal has.....well worth seeing
