Visited this place after a long time. Since I think its a Heritage building so not much changes were scene. Food quality is very nice and at a reasonable price. Nice spacious rooms with scenic views, since it is located within a forest range too many monkeys are there.

We went to Chail Palace after a long time. The place is majestic and rooms are very good. The staff is also very heling and welcoming. The maintenance could be better. Further lot of art work has been taken away and it reduces the charm of the palace. We saw that the lawn is not very well maintained. All rooms...
