The Manor Delhi is a full service boutique hotel, offering guests a tranquil oasis in the centre of New Deli’s bustling city. With a modern, sleek, contemporary design, this hotel is perfect for any guest looking for a classy getaway in one of India’s largest cities.
Originally a 1950’s farm house, The Manor was converted into a hotel in 1999. Today, it has been recently renovated to fit the needs of any modern traveller. Located in the posh neighbourhood of The Friends Colony, guests are assured that they are in safe hands.
As with many boutique properties, The Manor offers an intimate experience for its guests. With only 12 rooms, you are guaranteed to have a private and personalised stay.
Additionally, the entire staff at The Manor exhibit top quality service and are available around the clock to tend to any guests needs. Their friendly faces were the perfect warm welcome we needed in a city so foreign and new.
Upon arrival we were in absolute awe of the beauty of this property. The lush greenery that surrounds the hotel itself, along with the courtyard, was definitely noteworthy. The vegetation added to the overall ambiance of the space and truly made us feel as though we were outside of the city life.
As mentioned before, The Manor has 12 rooms. Thus, privacy is guaranteed. Of the 12 rooms, there are 5 various categories. Executive Rooms- perfect for any solo business traveller looking for a place to sleep and work for a few days. Deluxe Room- offering a king size bed for any couples looking to stay. Signature Room- adding a private patio to the mix! Studio Suite- a larger space that can fit more than two people comfortably. Manor Suite- the largest most spacious of all the rooms with a separate living space and terrace.
Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong. Due to the wide variety of rooms, it is clear that The Manor is able to accommodate a wide array of guests. Solo business travellers, couples on a romantic getaway, or even families will find something that suits their needs.
Each room is also beautifully decorated. The linens in the rooms are of top quality. One feature that the both of us particularly enjoyed was the espresso machine in the room! Additionally, we love making our own coffee’s in the morning and this was a fabulous added touch.
The Manor has two restaurants on the ground level. One called the Veranda and the other, in-Q ; both offer incredible cuisine!
The hotel is also in the process of opening up their bar and cafe area which will be available for guests around October of 2019!
The Veranda is the more casual dining experience of the two, yet still phenomenal. The menu offers guests a wide variety of both traditional Indian dishes, along with some more western bites as well. We had the chance to eat here for both breakfast and lunch and the food did not disappoint! Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable.
Probably the most noteworthy aspect of The Manor, is the in-Q. We had the honour of dining and experiencing the chef’s tasting menu here and we were absolutely blown away!
The concept behind the in-Q is to highlight an interpretation of modern Indian cuisine. The restaurant offers guests an intimate dining experience where they are transported through the various regions of India through their food.
With the opening courses inspired by Indian street food, followed by the fermentation process, and home style cooking, diners are exposed to such a wide variety of flavours. As each course arrives, you can’t help but be in total awe of the artistic beauty. The plating, the taste, and the overall experience is beyond memorable.
Executive Chef Aditya Jha, has had an extensive culinary background and is well versed on fine dining. His food was Michelin star quality and the best we have had in a while!
By the end of the meal, guests would have had the chance to taste flavours inspired by so many different regions of India, creating an entire circle of the map! Overall, it was such a great experience and one that made our entire stay at The Manor unforgettable.
Gym & Spa
Whilst the spa is still currently being renovated, it’s important to note that The Manor will be offering spa services for guests down the line. Additionally, there is a full service gym apart of the property where guests can go to get a good workout in!
The Manor will also have an art gallery on the premises. Featuring different local and foreign artists from around the world, the gallery plans to rotate exhibitions from month to month. This is a great way for visitors to see some unique pieces and pop up exhibitions during their stay.
Overall, our stay at The Manor was extremely memorable. Because this was a great way to start off our trip in India, we know we will be back next time. If you are looking for a comfortable escape in the middle of Delhi, be sure to check this noteworthy boutique hotel out!
