Your Views about Mughal Sheraton Agra

HM Ireland June 18 2008:“Loved the view”

Stayed here during our trip to India. Lovely entrance and the pool was great, nice cushioned sunbeds with lovely red and white thick towels. Room was grand and aircon working well.Towels clean and replaced regularly. Food at buffet very good with plenty of choice.

Allprosecurity Trinidad March 24 2008:"Impressive":
This hotel is a great deal especially with the "internet special" for with starwood site. Its good to experience a high price hotel with all the frills for the price of $150.00 USD. There's lots of stuff to do within the hotel for a mini vacation....especially on the grounds. We really did not want to have the buffet dinner as other options at the hotel seemed better but we were hungry after a full day of was OK.

Denise UK May 8 2008:“Great hotel.”
Beautiful hotel. We had a lovely room overlooking the fountains, garden and swimming pool. The room was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. Service was very good. Food was good, but not excellent. The view of the Taj from the roof terrace is fabulous!

Mike Oxford UK,May 5 2008:“Loved this luxury hotel”
This is an excellent luxury hotel for which you pay a price but it was still good value for money. Great bonus is that if you arrive on the early train from Delhi, arrives about 8.15am, you can book in after 8am and not pay for the night before. This was a fantastic luxury, to freshen up and have tea, in the room, all provided or breakfast in the restaurant, charge made. The room was clean, good AC, good size, not huge but very pleasant, nice en-suite. The bed was truly magnificent - where do they get the pillows from! Hotel facilities were excellent, very nice pool and grounds, with volleyball, tennis, table tennis and quads with a purpose built track (required payment). Situated conveniently for Taj, Agra fort etc. Breakfast service was slow; too many staff who could only single task, but ample choice and who is in a rush anyway! It was much better on our second day. We had 1 lunch and the service was also slow, really down to the staff whom are plentiful but unable to provide quick service. In the evening, eat in the Peswari, North West frontier food with fingers, cutlery available on request, excellent, very good helpful service; you need to book if the hotel is busy. We travelled privately so cannot judge food in the restaurant where the tour companies eat. All in all luxury hotel and you pay luxury price but well worth it.

Mourne England April 2008:“Inedible food!”
This hotel had good rooms and pleasant staff except in the dining rooms. The food was inedible and service very slow. The dinner buffet was uninspiring and the multi-national restaurant served inedible food- NEVER AGAIN! Sterling April 2008:“Luxurious oasis” We got a great deal for our stay on the shreaton usa website. Our room was very comfortable and excellently equipped and standard of service excellent. Buffet breakfast had great range of fresh attractive food. Evening meals average and expensive. Roof garden and view of Taj Mahal a real oasis in the evening. Lovely pool.

Max England April 22 2008:“Excellent”

  • Excellent luxury hotel.
  • Great room.
  • Great food.
  • Great service.

Roentgen London April 17 2008:“Best hotel in Golden Triangle tour”
The initial welcome was efficient and welcome drinks were provided as we were being booked into our rooms. The staff were all friendly and warm. The grounds were well maintained and nicely spaced out with pleasant green leafery. There were a good range of activities for children (badminton, quad biking, swimmimg etc). There were four restaurants on the grounds and we can recommend the buffet. We were generally impressed by the overall service, presentation and warmth of the environment.

Pets Peterborough April 9 2008:“Very Friendly and helpful”
My sister, father and I initially booked to stay for 3 days at the hotel. Unfortunately due to ill health we ended up staying 5 days. The hotel right from the initial booking contact were exceedingly helpful and friendly. They accommodated us by giving us adjoining rooms so my 89yr old father didn't have far to walk to meet us. We were given a wheelchair for indefinite use whilst we were at the hotel. Bell boys were virtually falling over themselves to help us when my father came in sight in the chair. When we called for a doctor they contacted one immediately and he was there at our room within 30minutes.

There were only 2 things my father was not keen on , one the a/c(felt it was canned air!) and secondly that the hotel complex was too big and things too far away. A lift between floors would have helped him rather than all the stairs. There were no restaurants at ground level, they were either in the lower ground floor or on the 1st floor meaning he was forced to use the service lift and enter restaurants via the back door.

Breakfast was excellent and the Chef made excellent muffins!!
Our stay was fairly pricey but would stay again hopefully on a cheaper rate.
As an aside, the hotel is trying to be eco friendly and using an electric "tuc-tuc" for ferrying guests about if they want to be adventurous instead of a gas guzzling air conditioned taxi.
Top marks to the Mughal

fluffnfold Pennsylvania March 2008:“An Oasis in Agra”
Very pleased with this choice! Of course, if money were no object, I would have chosen the Oberoi, but at $125 USD per night rather than $700, I cannot compliment them enough. It's a standard chain hotel, with huge chandelier in the lobby, several shops, astrologer (interesting!), and four restaurants. One restaurant is buffet (breakfast was included with our rate, but upon check-out, was charged separately, leading us to believe that if we hadn't eaten, the charge would have been deducted), one was Oriental/Chinese, one was continental and had both indoor and outdoor (near the pool) seating, and the high-end choice called Peshawri (very spicy food, typically eaten with ones hands, but a novel option that I would recommend). There's also a nice lobby bar (chips and nuts are complimentary with drink orders). The rooms were a nice size, with a sitting area; bathrooms provided all the amenities one could want (e.g., toiletries, hairdryers, robes, slippers). Nice pool, but they could use a few more sun lounger chairs. There are lots of fountains around the pool, and some ponds/water features upon entering the hotel.I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

John Los Angeles Dec 12, 2007: "Wonderful place"
We stayed for 3 nights. Overall, it was a good experience. The staff was very friendly. The restuarants in the hotel were pricey but the quality of food and service was good. The amenities were good and this hotel indeed belongs in the luxury collection.

The guide provided by the travel agency in the Hotel was good. However he took us to a store after visiting Taj Mahal that was extremely expensive. We found much cheaper and durable stuff in other government owned stores. Its better to shop on your own.

London Nov 19, 2007 : "What a view!"
The hotel was great, if a little impersonal. It had all the facilities
you would expect from a 5 star hotel, and the room was really well equipped with everything from cotton buds to shoe polish. The room was really nice, quite big and quiet. We welcomed having a swimming pool, quite rare in city hotels. There was a choice of restaurants and the breakfast buffet had a good selection.

Janet, Santa Monica, CA Nov 15, 2007 : “A Great Hotel”
Couldn't ask for more. The room was large and extremely comfortable. They have a floor couch that is really not too practical, but it looks nice. Staff were most helpful and the food in the dining room was good. The pool is in need of repair (tile, etc.), but the hotel said that this problem was being addressed.

Henrik Oslo Nov 12, 2007 : “World's best value for money?”
We had en excellent stay at this true 5-star hotel. We come from Scandinavia - even the very best and most expensive hotels here are not anywhere near the Sheraton Mughal. It has anything you would expect from a top-class hotel, and a lot more. And the price? We payed USD 105 per night.

Martina, Crewe Nov 4, 2007 : “Another Gem”
We arrived late afternoon after a long train journey from Jaipur but were quickly booked in and taken to our room via a view of the Taj in the smoggy distance. Room was comfortable and had all the facilities expected of a top hotel. Staff were welcoming and efficient throughout. There was a choice of restaurants to eat in but we focused on the multi-national buffet menu which was welcome after a weekend of non-stop Indian food.

Gardens were interesting to walk round although they were somewhat limited by building work and preparations for a concert. There was a decent swimming pool well away from the noise and bustle of this busy hotel. We stayed for two nights, and although it was not a cheap hotel to stay in, we enjoyed our stay and would have liked to stay for more.
