This Luxury Heritage Hotel at Longwood, once a summer residence of kings and queens is a cherished Royal hermitage.

Passionately preserved and conserved by one of the descendants of an erstwhile ruler, a stay at this majestic house is an opportunity to experience royal living. It’s a rare blessing to be surrounded by imperial objects handed down from generations that have stood the test of time across centuries.  Though the hosts have registered this property as a hotel, the essence of this accommodation is that of a royal household. It resonates the old world charm of a bygone era. Faded velvets and antiques, glowing silver and shining brass, regal furniture, and polished wooden floors, transport you to a different realm. The magnificence of this luxury heritage hotel at Longwood is in the little imperfections like chips, stains, cracks, and dents that stand as testimony to the passage of time.

This hotel houses five royal suites, all well-appointed with top notch modern accessories. The Luxury Suite, the Deluxe Suite, and the Red Room on the first floor, and the Pink Room and the Yellow Room at ground level are paradigms of regal interiors. Common spaces include three sitting areas which are the Hall, the Gold Room, and the formal drawing room. The decor of the library cum card room has a colonial touch. The garden and flowering pots at every inch of this Luxury Heritage Hotel at Longwood bring in a fresh breath of green everywhere. The glass and wooden exteriors compliment perfectly with the gorgeous garden smeared with innumerable shaded flowers.  A terraced garden, a tennis court, and a lawn for garden parties and playing croquet create an aura of homeliness around this property.

A huge English oak table and a round table set the tone for a royal feast. The cuisines served at the hotel are exquisite dishes of Awadh. Continental cuisine and Anglo-Indian dishes are prepared in the royal kitchen to cater to the palates of valued guests. Dinner is served by gloved bearers with drinks in exquisite cut glasses while silverware is used for tea.
