"A travel in time to British India"

If you are looking for a feeling of the British Raj, come to the Clarkes, the building, the food, the staff all throw you back in time. Fortunately the bath is not ancient. It sported the only shower in three weeks in India that did not run out of hot water, ever. The hotel is not big and pompous, but cozy with a personal touch. We got upgraded from the second to the third category and enjoyed a big room with views over both town and valley, and over sunrise and sunset. One just wonders who was the fool who permitted the building below the hotel slightly spoiling the valley view. However, the hotel does everything to try and hide the neighbouring monstrosity. Just one remark: The touch of Britishness also means that the chef is much better at Western than Indian food; his Western food is outstanding (all the dishes we tried), the Indian felt rather average. So, if you do not like Western food you might be better served in other restaurants.Read More
