A good deep clean to make the world of difference
The hotel was generally clean apart from the pool and spa area that looked a little dirty in places (on walls, around light switches). Dusting had clearly not been done under chairs in the main lobby and there was noticed clutter in the stairwells. The rooms were ok, beds softer than usual. There was sometimes a noise in the ceiling that sounded like a football was being bounced which kept me awake for a while but on inspection I couldn’t work out where it was coming from. The food we had was very good and prices were reasonable. We always had good service and when frequently asked for more water for the room we were never declined. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and overall it was a pleasant stay.

Terrible stay at Howard Plaza The Fern
We spent more than 60 pounds only to get comfortable stay in Agra but at night air conditioning was not working. Room service was not answering and at last at the time of check out manager was very rude, bad behaved and not customer focused.

Lovely stay for Taj Mahal
A very grand hotel for the price. Good value. Great pool and superb spa experience. Enjoyed the stay but just wish the staff were happier - they look unhappy. Something wrong? The hotel was lovely to return to for breakfast and a swim after an early visit to the Taj M. Much nicer than visiting the smaller attractions in the area.

Howard Plaza The Fern
We went on a busy weekend and most of the hotels were booked so ended up here. This was so not worth the price. I try to find a Hilton group hotel or Radisson and they were in a sold out situation. Only plus point was service. Staff was extremely helpful. Food was totally horrible. Will not stay there again or recommend.

Manage expectations
Superslow service. You have to ask multiple times. Maybe it says more about India than the specific hotel. Facilities out of date. Noisy room. Hard bed.
