Dear Guests,

Many thanks for your valuable feed back about our hotel. It is very important in our trade to firstly train ourself through proper institutes who groom us for the hotel industry. We in turn share that knowledge with the staff who are at your kind service.

It is very kind of you to appreciate our view,food,friendly staff and above all the warmth which plays
a very important part. We feel that the minute you walk into a hotel one should feel that "Yes "this is the place I want to be.

With best wishes,

Pichola Resort was hands down the best part of our 2 weeks in rajasthan. Our room was lush and comfortable (with a 10/10 VIEW), the food was spectacular and the service was phenomenal. The staff worked diligently to assure our comfort (asking if they could do anything) and meet our requests (holiday supplies). Moreover, the hotel's location is very close to downtown, and the main market area. Pichola is a way better option than a few of the $150/night places we splurged (and were hugely disappointed with)

Dear Guests,
Many thanks for your valuable comments which we shall always cherish . Most of our guests are highly impressed by the location of our hotel but all this credit goes to our ancestors who left this wonderful Haveli which we turned into a Heritage hotel.

We shall surely compliment our staff who played a prime part in making your holiday memorable one.Indeed the pricing too plays a very important part in our industry as one should get the value for his hard earned money.We are grateful to you for appreciating the finance part as well.

With best wishes,

We loved this hotel from the minute we walked into the lobby area with its british raj theme and decor and beautiful views from the terrace. The reception staff were very friendly and allowed us to switch our breakfast entitlement to the day we arrived as we were leaving very early on the day we checked out. They made a great effort to let us check in early which was very much appreciated after a 5am flight from Delhi. As for the room, it was truly beautiful - we stayed in the Padam Rani suite which had amazing views over the lake and the city palace - the room was huge and had a swing and a mattress seating area both with windows overlooking the lake as well as a separate seating area and a huge bathroom with a shower which had an integrated radio and a steam room! We felt like royalty staying here. The roof terrace is also lovely with great views especially at night although the service in the restaurant probably needs a bit more work. Location is fantastic- an easy walk over to the city palace and the main part of the town. One member of staff, unfortunately i did not get his name, was so helpful and friendly and went out of his way to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible - a big thank you for that. A couple of very minor negative points were that we were not told that we had to leave our room keys at reception so when we returned in the evening, the room had not been cleaned. However once we told the staff about this, they very quickly made up for it and had the room cleaned at 9pm when we went out for dinner. The other thing is that there does seem to be a slight bit of preferential treatment for the big groups booking in who were welcomed with garlands and drinks however this was only a minor point and did not affect our enjoyment of the hotel. Whilst we did not have the opportunity to visit the Taj Lake Palace, we believe that this hotel provided an excellent service and experience with gorgeous views for a great value. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and family and if we returned to Udaipur, we would choose to stay here again.

Room Tip: The suites are amazing and very good value with views of the lake and the city palace

Dear Guests,

We are overwhelmed by your such appreciation about our property. I have dedicated this Rani Padam Suite to my mother and your total satisfaction gives me immense pleasure and a feeling that my mother must be blessing me.

We have briefed our staff to be at the kind disposal of all our guests to do whatever we can do to make their stay more comfortable. We shall surely try and see into the service part at the restaurant so in times to come other guests do not face any such difficulty.We appreciate your suggestion.

As far as garlanding and welcome drinks is concerned we do that for all our guests who are booked with us but your arrival was early in the morning and our garlands are not supplied to us that early.Now we have started ordering these garlands at night only. We look forward to receive you again to make your next visit more comfortable.

With best wishes,

Fantastic room view with lake all around you. Makes you feel like being on a boat bedroom. Foot is excellent quality and tasty. The owners are heirs to the king. They are very friendly, especially would like to mention the Mataji (owners wife) is down to earth hospitable. Her queens traditinal attire is simply fabulous. Great experience overall.

Dear Guests,

We thank you for your review. We are glad to know you liked our rooms and you felt as if it is in a boat. It it very kind of you to appreciate our food which is very important as you are away from your home trying different cuisines.

We are not the heirs to the king but in our history Maharana Udai Singhji had three wives of which the second wife's children are our predecessors.Our present king is the direct successor from the first wife.

We do feel that our traditional dresses are our cultural heritage and we are proud to wear them.It is nice to learn that you appreciate our traditions.

Visited Udaipur during the off peak season of Aug 2012 as a couple, and stayed at Lake Pichola. One word. Awesome!

The best part of the hotel is its location. Just walking distance from the city center, and across a bridge. Pick up the rooms facing the lake, and you can see the City Palace on the other banks of the lake, right opposite your room. Rooms are clean and tidy and so are the bathrooms - most importantly.

There's an open air restaurant on the top and you can have dinner with the view of the palace and the rest of the city under lights. Restaurant food is quite good, breakfast menu is limited but tasty. Staff helped arrange local transport to travel to the slightly farther places, while we walked down to the city center for the nearby attractions.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: View of the rooms on ground floor are better than the ones on the first floor

Dear Guests,

We are obliged to you for writing a review about our property. Your visit during August gives a very different look to our city as it is monsoon time and the city is close to mother nature.One can see waterfalls and cascades around Udaipur as it is surrounded by hills which are lush green at this time of the year.

We have always been a winner with our location which plays a prime part for any hotel to be well placed.The monuments close by also save you the time of travel as you can just walk down rather take a taxi or tuk tuk.

We are glad to learn that you liked our ground floor rooms where you can literally feel that you are practically adjacent to water.

It is a very good family run clean hotel ... good location right by the lake and nice clean rooms and close to all amenities and reasonable in price. The Jaymandir is close by and so is the palace :-)

We are grateful to you for sparing your valuable time to write a review of our hotel. We a small family of four and our staff who too are like our family only, are involved in looking after our property to make sure we offer all our valued guests the best services.

Our lake attached location is of course the highlight of this hotel which also has the advantage of being close to market as well as sight seeing places like the Jagdish Temple and the city palace.

One of the best place so far visited. Never thought of this kind of place, service, behavior and beautifully decorated hotel.
Very nice staff and owner is also very humble. True rajasthani culture and hospitality.
Very nicely decorated rooms and main attraction is lounge which is very beautifully decorated.
Food was excellent and felt always at home.
