This is a delightful hotel. There are not many rooms and ours was huge and beautiful. The staff are very friendly and helpful. After arriving and depositing our bags we went to look at the vintage car collection belonging to the former Maharajah. Unfortunately we were unable to view the interiors but it was interesting. We were also shown the...

This hotel is approached down a driveway. The brickwork is painted red with white around the windows and doors. There was a warm welcome from the staff with cold drinks and garlands. Our room was on the first floor and was huge with a separate dressing room and bathroom. It was very clean and comfortable. Dinner and breakfast were served...

All rooms were lovely but varied in size a lot. The rooms on the left side of the palace are huge suites with dressing room and vast bed and bathroom. Rooms on the right are charming and cosy. There are lots of communal places to sit. Great food and lovely service.

I immediately felt comfortable. The hotel is situated in the middle of Gondal in a nicely landscaped garden, with peacocks. Warm welcome from the staff. My room on the garden floor was vast, with a dressing room and a large marble bathroom. Many windows looking out onto the grounds. Bathroom amenities were great. Tea making facilities and bottled water provided....

The windows overlooked a shady terrace with a comfortable seating area. In fact there were comfortable and plentiful seating areas throughout the property both inside and outside. The garden is charming and...

I stayed for only one night at this heritage hotel on my way from Rajkot to Gir National Park. It turned out to be a perfect choice: upon request the hotel staff arranged for my pick-up from Rajkot airport as well as my transport to Gir the next day. The hotel is conveniently located about an hour from the airport...

Enjoyed the attentive yet casual welcome by staff who were amongst some of the friendliest we came across in the whole of our time in Gujurat. Shown to my room I must admit to feeling a little overwhelmed by the sheer size of it, given I was on my own, which included an enormous bedroom/ lounge area, an adjoining dressing...
