Very friendly and a good hospitality
by AnMa18 on
We stayed in old building (heritage) which long time ago was a Hunting Lodge, so you will find there a lot of pictures of it....
Very clean rooms and everywhere around, very delicious food. Amazing hospitality. Only 5 min drive to Bharatpur Birds Sanctuary.
Great property with weird rules
by tomojit0506 on
Let me list the positives first:
1. Its a beautiful property. The palace was built by one of the rulers of the local Jat kingdom and the property retains its old world charm and grandeur.
2. The swmming pool overlooking the hotel is tastefully decorated and very clean.
3. The staff is very courteous and helpful.
1. There is absolutely no room service for food. You have to go to the restaurant for all your food requirements. No exception was made even during the Covid times when gatherings at the restaurant could have been avoided.
2. Hot water is available only during specific hours. So plan your baths accordingly if you are traveling in winter. After paying a hefty tariff for a four star facility, the least you expect is 24x7 hot water.
3. Ask for the wi-fi username and password. Its not mentioned anywhere and they will not give you the info if you do not ask. The speed is unpredictable. When we complained they said nothing much could be done about it, though the speed miraculously improved immediately after the complaint.
To sum up, its a good place to stay but the tariff of 6-8k per night is simply not justified.
Great relaxing extended weekend at a superb place!

It's a beautiful, relaxing place, with excellent food and service. The manager Mr. Rameshwar booked us a lovely suite on the property. We were offered a choice between 2 room types: Classic suite and Royal suite. The difference in price was just a thousand rupees, but the difference in size and ambience was way more than that. We chose the Royal Suite (the pricier one), and did not regret it! The bed linen was super clean, the pillows comfy, and the bathroom huge and clean. We had our own large private balcony overlooking the pool. (This was suite number 208). We also had a special entrance, with a verandah, with chairs and a table, overlooking the central courtyard, where the guests were served high tea. The lawns are lovely to walk in, and the covered platforms in front of the palace beyond the lawns are ideal for sitting and chatting
with friends. Although we didn't swim (we were being a little cautious in covid times), we found the pool to be clean, although a little smaller than the average sized pool, with the same depth all through (so please don't do diving in it), but there is a Jacuzzi on one side under a 'chatri', and a kiddies pool under another one. The aesthetics here are lovely, with a park with swings in a lawn below, and original wrought iron furniture placed all around the pool. We liked the food too, as it was tasty, simple and not overly spicy (we took the all inclusive deal, with all 3 meals). All in all, a royal experience! The only niggles were a poorly functioning hygiene wash in the bathroom. The highlight was the crib in the corner, not that we needed it (!), but such a thoughtful addition. All precautions regarding covid were duly taken by all staff, and all areas regularly sanitised. it has been 3 days since we returned, and we are all well, hale and hearty!! I would definitely like to return here, probably in the dead of winter.
