We had 2 nights here and I really liked it. It's a small heritage hotel with nice grounds and really good staff. Our suite was big with a comfortable bed and bathroom with lots of hot water and places for your stuff so well as a big balcony . It's not for Hilton lovers but if you like old, and...

This is a gem of a place! If you like a sanitised, characterless, corporate hotel - then this is not the place for you. But if you appreciate personal service and friendly staff, lovely surroundings and somewhere with hospitality and the feeling that you are staying in a beautiful home then you will not be disappointed. Thank you for making...

The place is beautiful - a heritage home lovingly cared for. The room we stayed in Gadwal used to be a barn for storing rice and now accommodates 3 people, one on the mezzanine floor. The food is prepared fresh to order though there aren't many options to choose from. The staff is very friendly and helpful and help add...

I write this while attempting to sleep inn the Gadwal room of this absolutely terrible villa hotel ( you can't even call it that). I for one love old world charm and character but this is down right pathetic. The sheer amount of dust dirt and filth absolutely everywhere makes for a dangerously unhygienic place to stay. Countless lizards ,...

We had arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport in the early hours of the morning, but it failed to turn up. We phoned the hotel - apparently waking the other guests - but they again failed to rectify the problem so in the end we had to take an unknown taxi at 4am, which could...

Villa Potipatti reminds one of the home of a rich aunt.7-8 bedrooms looked after by five or six staff members. Having said that if the Neemrana group really runs the Hotel it is one Hotel that they have forgotten they own. The exterior begs for a a coat of paint. The gates at the entrance have shabbily dressed security guards,...

As such, this is great place, away from the modernized and standardized hotels that are increasing in number in India today.
