We visited this amazing hotel during our recent tour of Indias Golden Triangle. Having left Agra, we were making our way to Jaipur and were told by our guide that we would be stopping at a hotel on the way, for lunch. Having passed through some very Third World looking villages, we turned off the main road and entered a run down town of Bharatpur passing along a poorly kept road, where it seemed as if the workers repairing it had downed tools and left it weeks ago. All of a sudden we turned into what looked like a relic of the days of the Raj. A wonderful old Hotel, extensively renovated, in the middle of nowhere. We were only here probably 90 minutes for a Buffet lunch stop in a delightful old restaurant, that looked like a set for the Exotic Marigold Hotel, full of chandeliers, old ceiling fans and pictures of Indian Nobility from days past. I gathered by talking to some of the staff that the building had once been a palace and was over 120 years old and that many famous people had visited here in the past. There were quite a number of guests dining in the attractive courtyard and we noted extensive and well kept gardens. Can't make any comment re the cuisine and standard of service within the Hotel itself. Only that we received good service and decent food for our lunch and would recommend a visit when in the area
We stayed in the old wing during Christmas 2016. The property is nice and well maintained. It is abt 15 min drive away from the Keoladeo National Park. Rooms are spacious and have the 'haveli' feel. The quality of food and the bar options however are very ordinary as are the overall service levels. Note: When we visited the road leading up to the property was under repair and was of very poor quality. Accessibility should improve once the road is fully repaired.
We booked Laxmi Vilas but found ourselves staying in Laxmi Niwas, the more recent addition to the property, and complementary to it in the same style and with the same management and staff. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped as was the bathroom, with an excellent shower. If we had had time there was plenty to do within the hotel complex - swimming pool, massage centre, carom, table tennis, badminton court. We really only had time to eat and sleep but did enjoy a stroll around the grounds and the various courtyards of Laxmi Niwas with the nice brass door handles (and touches in our room) - and a brief drink in the bar where we were surprised to find there was no tonic.... but managed with an alternative mixer for a change. Food we excellent but another surprise was no marmalade for breakfast. Apart from these 2 minor omissions, everything was first class.
They allotted us room no. 401. We felt as if we are guest of the royal family. The room was very big, so was the bathroom, but both were equipped with modern amenities with elegant decor. Everything was properly functional. The restaurant was itself a place to watch, with its royal decor at the ceiling and walls. The buffet spread was splendid, as regards taste and variety. Even if you cannot manage time to stay here, just visit the place for lunch. I have two suggestions for improvement : an all-day menu may be provided, and wifi at room may be arranged. We shall cherish the memory of our stay here for a long time.
The Heritage hotel is in 2 parts - the old and the new property. We stayed in the Royal Suite in the old property. The room was massive with a balcony overlooking the pool area. The buffet was customised as per the guests staying the hotel. Light food with reasonable spread to choose from. The property is very beautifully made and full of spots for good photographs :) The hospitality extended was also good. The Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary is barely 2kms from the hotel. Overall a very nice experience and stay at Laxmi Vilas Palace Hotel.
