Although the experience at Oberoi was wonderful,still the hotel lacks in providing many things...... The king size bed which was provided to us had so soft mattresses which made us have sleepless nights and on the last night our grievance was finally resolved. As far as the staff is concerned,all of them were very courteous,soft and helpful who took extra care of us. The best part of the Hotel is the activity area for kids & the swimming pool along with its instructor who could probably lend all he had to teach swimming to the guests, this feature makes the Hotel distinct. The other thing is the lesser variety of dishes in the buffet... But on the whole the experience at Hotel Oberoi was wonderful.

This hotel has nothing to offer..its a boring oldie type hotel with big price tags.. The attrium design is pathetic... u can hear everyone outside your room. Food is average and over priced. Overall not worth it.... they dont accept FHRAI hotel discount card ... pity ... pathetic hotel... not at all of Oberoi standard.

One of the Greatest properties we have stayed. Heritage building with awesome wood work which is prominent part of the entire property. Spacious rooms. Warm and caring staff. Great temperature controlled pool. The only restaurant offers cuisines of the world as well as local. Chef bhamra is talented and passionate about his work of culinary art. Kudos. Property is very well Located not very far from the Mall , yet peaceful surroundings.

Only an Oberoi hotel could manage to get the title of "Exceptional Hospitality" after a gap of 5 years --- the earlier one being for Trident Udaipur in Jan 2012. Stayed for 2 nights at The Cecil with my wife & 2 kids aged 6yrs & 1yr. The staff treats you like a family instead of guests and this is what sets The Cecil apart from other hotels of the same category. Their conduct is extremely warm & polite with full attention to detail instead of being formal & to the point. It is a very child friendly hotel as there was never a "no" to anything required by my small kids. I am grateful to Mr. Vishal Pathak (General Manager) for taking so much personal interest regarding guest comforts and meeting them over the breakfast. Specially appreciate Mr. Raj Kumar Bhatia, the Chef who facilitated customised meal menu for my kids. Food overall is sumptuous. I am thankful to Ms. Pooja at the activity centre to involve my kids in games and activities. Infact my daughter is missing her back home. Thanks to Mr. Vipul Kumar Gupta, Mr. Shanib, Mr. Nikhil, Mr. Kartik & Mr. Mayank (from Trident Agra). Thanks to the pianist for enlivening our evenings. My son forgot his toy tab at the lobby and the hotel has traced it and sending it back to my address. Thanks to Ms. Jigyasa for the extra effort. The Cecil sells you an experience and not just luxuriously appointed rooms.
Avoid 5th floor rooms because of the slope in ceiling
