      Historical Traveler Reviews The Manor New Delhi

      A Modern jewel In Delhi


      We cannot say enough about The Manor... the peacfull modern jewel of Delhi. It was our retreat base when we traveled through India this past summer. It was like coming back home after our travels in the northen mountains, and again back from the chaos of the south. We where treated with such warm welcomes, kindness and help from all the staff in every way. What a delight to stay in such a well maintained, comfortable and architecturally elegant space. The food is superb, as well as the service. We are so gratefull to know we have a home in Delhi !

      More than pleased


      We stayed four nights in mid June and loved the property and service at the Manor. The property is set in a very nice residential neighborhood that is a few blocks away from a main artery to central Delhi.

      When the four of us arrived, we were the only guests in the small hotel and we were upgraded to the best rooms available. They even surprised me by secretly making birthday cake and leaving it in my room. The staff is very friendly and unobtrusive.

      The property has a modern look, with a lot of stonework and natural colors. The restaurant was great and we really enjoyed our breakfast and dinner selections. Some people on TA have complained about the train, but if you are used to sleeping in a metropolitan area it should not be an issue.

      If you want an intimate, modern experience in an oasis in Delhi, stay at the Manor. If you want some pomp and ceremony, stay at the Imperial or the Oberoi.

      Dining good, hotel dull.


      We stayed twice at this hotel and had very ordinary experiences both times which wasn't helped by paying more than US$400 a night for a suite which was nothing special - rather dull, no view, noisy. Perhaps the other rooms are much better value. We agree with other reviewers about the food which was very good and the restaurant has pleasant efficient staff. But on both visits we were the only ones dining and the hotel felt as though we were the only ones there which resulted in a rather dead atmosphere. The front office staff we rarely saw, but were mostly fine except for one very illmannered staff member who couldn't be bothered to greet us on arrival, and who checked us in with apparent reluctance at having to bestir himself. This is an Aman-managed property, and so should be superbly run but appeared leaderless and lacklustre overall.

      Another manor fan


      The Manor is not perfect - there is a train behind the hotel which can be heard and felt at times, some of the standard rooms could use a bit of renovation (rugs, etc.) It is also not a business hotel, being small and without a business center and lots of restaurants. However, so much care went into every detail: the food is excellent, the service above excellent. At the end of a day of business or sightseeing, there is the wonderful prospect of returning to the hotel, sitting on the veranda overlooking the lawn and enjoying the relative stillness in the whirlwind of New Delhi.

      Fantastic little hotel


      On reading the previous review I'm a bit disappointed to have missed the bollywood party. The Manor was our last stop on our first trip to India, and was a super finale. This is a great hotel, with excellent staff and superb food. The staff went out of their way to help us out with arrangements, and everything about the location, atmosphere, garden, gym, and hotel labrador was spot on. Can't recommend this place enough!

      Indian style and hospitality at its finest


      It was our first trip to India and Delhi was our first city. We were greeted at the airport with cold towels, chilled drinks and a vintage restored Ambassador car to pick us up with uniformed chauffeur!! What a way to start! The Manor is an absolutely charming and beautiful hotel situated close enough for a 10 min tuk tuk ride into the centre of Delhi but far enough out in Friends Colony to have respite from the noise. Everything about this hotel is superb. Staff attentive and helpful without being overly annoying, food incredible, roof terrace positively spiritual and rooms stylish and comfortable. Its worth every penny to stay here (even though we could only get a queen size room as all the king size's had already sold out) and it wins hands down over the more traditional hotels like the Imperial. We even saw an amazing Bollywood party on the hotel lawn on our first night at the hotel. We cant rate this hotel higly enough.

      Lovely place


      We spent two nights at The Manor and found it to be a lovely place. The staff is incredibly attentive and kind, and the restaurant was delicious. The place is immaculate, very comfortable, and serene (a rare thing in Delhi). Our room was perfect except for its small size. Considering the per-night rate, this was surprising. The hotel is also pretty out of the way: a good 30 mins. from Connaught Place, worse with heavy traffic. Since there are only 10 rooms, the hotel can feel almost too small at times, as if the staff knew your every move. Overall, it's a really fine place. Just depends on what you're looking for.

      Stay at this hotel!


      We loved the Manor. It really is an oasis in what can be an overwhelming city. The staff were charming and pleasant and incredibly helpful - they in fact booked our train tickets and cars in advance so we could plan our holiday independently without having to go through a travel agent. The decor is gorgeous - incredibly simple and tasteful and the beds are bliss. Tea on the lawn after a days sightseeing is to be recommended.

      An Oasis


      We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in October 2004. The staff were excellent without exception.Very reasonable charge for car and driver for a day.Staff more than happy to help you plan your itinerary.Dinners were very good. Did not charge extra for use of our room until we were taken to the airport at 10pm.They even changed the linen for us.

      Not cheap but worth every penny. Very pleasant welcoming atmosphere.

      Wonderfully relaxing place to stay


      stayed at the manor feb 04 and returning feb 05.

      What a beautiful place !

      Excellent staff and service.Hotel arranged shopping trip ,sight-seeing etc.We felt like we were royalty.

Arun collected us about 1 and we headed up to the Lodi Gardens, an oasis of green with lots of local families enjoying picnics and a veritable horde of schoolgirls on an outing all in splendid green uniforms. Within the gardens there are many 15 and 16th century monuments and we visited two - first the tomb of Sikander Lodi set within a huge courtyard, and then the Shish Gumbad ("large dome"). Both ...

      ... kill, so our guide took us to the local market. There were a few shops catering to the tourists, but this market was primarily for the local residents. It was cool to see the things they were buying. My favorite was the flower market. There were a dozen or more men putting together garlands of marigolds. When we would cross the road, there would be cars zooming by on all sides.

He told us that the other guy was his student who stole from him so he kicked him out and that he was the best in Delhi. He insisted he'd do some for free to show us his skills and Izzy got talked in to getting her other arm done, and Nat an extension on his original arm onto his hand, for a ...

      Today at 4am Today I started with a car and driver Ramesh who was recommended by two New York friends Kumar and Mehesh. My first priority was to lose my western clothes so, first we visited several local markets: Delli Heet, Hauz Khas Village and Khan Market. In the village I came upon the perfect outfit but, sadly no place to where it and then I met this young lady who clued me in to where I should be shopping. Next ...
