Historical Traveller Reviews of The Manor Hotel

Feeling Cosseted

from AnnaFrance
We stayed at The Manor for two nights at the beginning of our honeymoon trip to India at the end of March 2007.It was a very welcome oasis of excellent customer service ,beautifuly designed surroundings and great food!The bed was exceptionaly comfortable and everything we needed was carried out promptly,faultlessly and without cutting corners.Not at all something which can be said for most hotels we have stayed in in this price range!Our decision to stay here was based on reading other traveller reviews so now we will certainly consult this site before planning other holidays.We liked The Manor so much that we asked our driver(superbly organised along with hotel bookings etc for the duration of our trip by Rajputana Holiday Makers in Jaipura)to make a detour on our way from Agra to the airport just so we could eat there before our flight.We definitely recommend this hotel.

A great base to call home in India

from Max25
The Manor was apparently India's first boutique hotel when it opened in 1999. And while it looks like its now in need of its first facelift since 1999, it generously ticks the principal boxes of a great boutique hotel - exclusive, intimate experience and fantastically personal service.

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 better

from mogu
We stayed at The Manor last September. It seems to have gotten quite good reviews from a lot of people but I wasn't all that much impressed, although I have to admit it is an overall pleasant hotel. It may have to do with the fact that we had stayed at the glorious and impeccable Devi Garh in Udaipur previously before arriving at The Manor.
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 Delhi

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 chaos

from NicholasHelsinki
My wife and I stayed here for five nights the end of January while on vacation in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. We had rented a car and a driver from Rajputana Holiday Makers (first class rental company in Jaipur) and drove around the three cities starting and finishing in Delhi. In Agra we stayed at the Hilton and in Jaipur at the Alsisar Haveli.
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 Choice

from RGFSavannah
We had an excellent experience here at the end of our two week stay in India. Found the hotel through the internet. The staff was wonderful and assisted us (3 couples) in every way through our last day with a driver (meeting us a the train station) and shopping and to the airport and mailing boxes back to the US following a wedding. The rooms were clean and crisp and constantly maintained every time we left. The food was wonderful, from lunch one day to breakfast. The atmosphere was peaceful with no disturbances for sleep. Having stayed at a larger hotel at the beginning of our stay in India, this place was totally different and catered to our individual needs. The three couples felt that we were in a family environment. We loved being at the Manor and recomment it to anyone going to Delhi.

A Gem

from MB747
There is not much that I can add to the other positive reviews of the Manor posted on TripAdvisor except to say that they are all true-- the Manor is as wonderful as everyone says it is.

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.

Highly recommended.

An oasis of calm

from LHRTripper
If you want to stay in a decent hotel in Delhi without staying in one of the big chain hotels try The Manor. The Manor is situated in a smart suburb of New Delhi. The rooms are fitted to international standards. The decor is clean and modern, if a little characterless. The character is provided by the charming staff. The modern Indian cuisine in the restaurant is excellent.

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 price

from WycliffeJT
A great hotel away from the fun madness that is Delhi. Rooms are lovely and the restaurant is very good. However all this comes at a price - its expensive even by London standards. But if you have just arrived in India and want somewhere quiet to stay, its hard to beat. P.S If you intend to arrange transport through them, prepare to haggle alot as the prices they quote are very high.

Excellent classy hotel

from FrenchyVal
This hotel is excellent and very classy. A relief after a 8 hours flight and no sleep! Rooms are spacious - I would recommend the suite though, with a modern deco. Very clean, with impeccable service and very quiet. With only 14 rooms, each guest is treated as a very special guest! Although I had read on Tripadvisor that there is a train line passing by the hotel, I can garantee that you can hardly hear it. The hotel staff were very helpful, picked us up from the airport (part of the service) and helped us booked our rail journey for the entire trip! The Food is excellent, amazing curries - nothing like what is served at home of course - the cuisine is very fine, blending fresh herbs and spices. Juices are completly made from fresh.
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
