“Unusual and quirky place that caters to groups”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2012

Like MJ's previous review we chose this place near the airport so we wouldn't have to go a long way in to town then return to airport in traffic for a morning flight onward. Olde Bangalore has it's charms and drawbacks. The tents are very cute with paisley decorations on the fabric; well appointed room with tea service, tv, minibar and lockable closets for your valuables. Bed was VERY hard, but was ok for us. Bathroom was spotless and everything worked properly, especially considering that it is a tent! Having been to Africa many times on safaris, the tent concept was attractive and sounded like fun.

Unfortunately for us, wanting to get a good night's sleep was not the first priority for the management who was catering to a large business function. We were lucky that the loud, throbbing music finally ended at 11pm, after we called reception to complain. All of the energy in the kitchen was focused on the big group.

The next morning we were awakened to birds and planes. Then the power went off, and the sounds were replaced by a noisy generator rattling outside the tent. Good thing we were leaving for the airport....

We were told that our rate was for only one person, that we would have to pay extra for my husband, even though they had put us in a room with a large double bed. Rather bizarre, but they waived the fee when we were checking out the next morning after complaining about the noise the night before. We also had trouble with the wifi which we felt was outrageously priced, especially considering how wired Bangalore is.

Food was excellent and plentiful, and service were very genuine and kind. The pool was gorgeous and grounds were lovely, tranquil and well kept. For all these reasons I would recommend Olde Bangalore for a quick overnight stay not far from the airport. For westerners it is reasonably priced, accessible and authentic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the night time activities if there is a function going on. (GOOD LUCK!!!)

Wow, this place is an oasis from the behemoth of Bangalore. The concept and tent rooms are amazing. It brought me back to my Girl Scout camping days. We chose the place just because it's near the airport. Wanted a good night's sleep before our morning flight. Did not get it. For some reason management put us in the tent nearest a noisy wedding reception that was supposed to wrap up at 11 but lingered until the wee hours. We booked quite far in advance, they should have put wedding party people closer to the fun. Then they tried to charge us for an extra bed because our nine year old was with us. But we didn't have an extra bed. We were trying to be nice and not complain about the noise, but I decided to complain and they waived the "bed" fee.

Still, I love this place. I'd love to come back with my husband's family that live in the city (checking ahead for parties near the tents) It's way too pricey for many average Indians and they charge heavily for kids stays g with parents though so it may not work out. Maybe be more financially family friendly? Resort grounds are great for family. So cool and unexpected. Bravo!

We arranged for an offsite at this place. Olde did took good care of all of us. Nice breakfast.
Staff looked happy and were worried about property.
They have onsite bakery. Very nice muffin, fruit cake and cookies. Overall every one very happy.
It is expensive if you are planning to be there on your own.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. If you want to celebrate a special occasion and need some special arrangements then they will make those perfect. The food was very tasty. And the activities on offer will make sure you are never bored. One definitely needs to try out air rifle shooting there-they have a 10 metre indoor range. They keep the pool meticulously clean. All in all it was a great stay.

I went there with a friend and families to celebrate a birthday. There were infants and kids in the group too. I took the day package which was little less than 1000(different for adults/children).

Over all the experience was superb. The facilities(including shooting range) work, food is awesome(one of the best gobhi Manchurians in Bangalore :), and service fairly decent. The place is not far from Airport main road but does not feel like regular dusty and crowded Bangalore. There is enough place for kids to run around, cycle, swim, play badminton, TT. The bar is OK with basic wine choices available.

So overall good for a day outing if u need a place with in 1 hour drive from city with family and kids.
