A fine Colonial Experience
Plus: Loved every bit of our stay in the Colonial property. Peaceful surroundings, polite & professional staff and British touch were some of the best part of our stay. Taj has preserved the colonial touch of the property almost at every corner. A wonderful Taj Experience. Minus: Although we requested and gave prior information on our anniversary celebration, the arrangements made weren't satisfying. The table cloth which was used for dinner was an ordinary one and the flowers were randomly kept on the table. We requested for a photographer for the dinner which was later told to us as not available. The anniversary cake wasn't personalized and it was small in size. A Little more attention to detail could have made the dinner experience better.

Good and peaceful vacation.
In emergency due to corona virus threat our son boarding school closed for vacations. We were skeptical for checking in any hotel, but were highly impressed by the professionalism of hotel staff. Saw them implementing all precautions / sanitizing the premise and checking the guests on arrival.
