Let me get the negatives out of the way first. I stayed at The Elgin Fairlawn for 3 nights in July. I booked via Booking.com and although I checked in by 6pm, I got the only single room with a balcony that opens to the busy Kolkata streets because the rest of the hotel was full. The room was small and loud and my first night I slept little. There was also construction going on downstairs during the duration of our stay as it is monsoon season and the best possible time, according to the new owner hotelier, Diamond Oberoi, whom I met while there, to complete such projects. Therefore, there was hammering, sawing, breaking up of rock in the garden seating area which opens to the reception and restaurant. You could not escape the noise unless you went to your room. I asked the management to move my room which they did on the 2nd and 3rd nights, to room number 7, a very writerly pleasant room which I could have stayed in for a month. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was okay but the restaurant manager seems unimaginative with regard to healthier, more South Indian or Ayurvedic options. It also would have been nice if they offered something Indian and other than porridge or eggs for their complementary breakfast. The general atmosphere is relaxing (sans the construction), aesthetically appealing, a welcome respite close to everything in Central Kolkata. My sense is that the new owner and management will improve those areas of the hotel that need upgrading, hopefully, without much increasing the price. A heritage hotel that I would definitely return to if I ever find myself in Kolkata again.

We stayed for three nights and have to say: forget all the old reviews, don't even read them. The hotel has been taken over by members of the Oberoi-family three months ago, belongs now to the Elgin-group and there will be many changes. Renovation has started, but was no big issue regarding noise etc. at our stay. The hotel is impeccably clean, the bed sheets new, everything is working, maintained and the staff incredibly cheerful and attentive. The new cook is very good! We met the couple who owns the place now. They are representatives of an old-style hospitability you cannot find often anymore. Their aim is to create a place where you have an unforgettable Kolkata-experience. The way they interact with their staff is impressive (especially when you are familiar with the hotel business). In our opinion the only thing which did not match the standards was breakfast. It seemed prepared without care (fruit was cut some time ago, cold fries, cold beans) and quality of some items was rather poor (coffee, tea, toast). But improvments take a while and not everything can be done at once. We wish you all the best!

Least did I imagine I would be spending a night in a hotel where I camped when I was just seven years of age. Yes, I'm talking about a hotel that used to be known as Fairlawn run by a foreigner in a house that was once known as a Canada house. Today the Hotel is known as Elgin Fairlawn just next to India Museum in Kolkata. The Facilities are basic but there is an aroma of the Raj. Nearly after 50 odd years, I stepped into the same space. I'm sure in months to come this will transform itself into a fine Gem in the region in the hands of the Elgin group. Food continues to be exotic and the location is unbeatable.

Fascinating city. Really has the old world charm. We enjoyed Kolkatta. This hotel is also a legend. Could do with some renovation but otherwise a nice hotel with good old fashioned service. Value for money.

This historic property is badly in need of refurbishment, and I'm glad to see it's been purchased by a hotel group with the intent to update it. At one time it was, no doubt, a delightful, charming place with an elegant atmosphere, but it is so far past its prime that now it's just sad and dowdy. The pros: friendly, helpful staff; large rooms; A/C window units that worked. The cons: pretty much everything else--the towels were really thin, the pillows were uncomfortable, the street noise was unbelievably LOUD, and the windows didn't close all the way. Oh, and bring your own shampoo & conditioner as none is provided. It's been a long time since I've stayed anywhere that didn't at least provide shampoo. Plus, they advertise a "beer garden" on the premises, but they don't sell beer. I wouldn't stay here until the up-dating is complete. It's a great location, though, and I do hope the historical aspects can be preserved along with a modern facelift. It could be lovely.
