“Very Good and peaceful Place ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

It's a very good hotel for short vacation and relaxing. It's near to city but not a part of city so we can enjoy peace from daily traffic. We were visited at Holi time and that was our lifetime memorable great experience for us. We played holi with prince of Mevar and owner of dis hotel..such a royal experience that was. Kids really enjoyed forest type atmosphere with deer park, peacocks, horses, ducks and monkeys..
Really very good experience for us.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with friends

Imagine you are on a short family vacation and have chosen this "quiet" place for a nice chill out and have agreed to pay the hotel 100 Euros per night, here is what you are most likely to get :

1. Resident members asked to vacate the swimming pool by morning 11 am as the hotel owner and his friends have arranged a pool party for the local Holi celebration! After 2 Hours a dirty pool is left for the resident guests next 24 hours. So, you never use it.
2. Even though you heard about GrandHoli in Rajasthan, you will be shunted back to your rooms as the celebration is reserved for outsiders
3. Resturants, kitchen and room service are often shut down to arrange local parties
3. Loud Music played for another marriage party till night 11.30pm without any consideration for the staying guests

In spite of this being a lovely place, close to Udaipur without any hustle and bustle, you as a staying guest will be treated miserably as the Hotel is more keen to host noisy, local parties. No considerations for families staying with young children. After paying close to 100 Euros+ per night, this is what you get .

We came back from this place with severe disappointment. NOT recommended at all.

Room Tip: To avoid noise and disturbances by outside parties, its better to take rooms towards the end of jung...

The overall ambience is good. There are two particular things I hated. We went during holi to Shikharbadi. There was a private party organized for holi. The swimming pool was dirty as a result and we were not able to use it. Again, there was a private dj party at night with loud music which went on till 11pm. I almost thought of complaining but resisted because I didnt want to spoil my outing any further.

I would advice all future travellers to check for these parties because they are a spoiler.

Room Tip: Please ask for the rooms with stone walls. They have a good view.

Interesting stables with approx. 40 prized horses plus, deer park with peacocks as well, and lake with a variety of birds. Accommodation was adequate, food very good and staff helpful. We were on an all in trip, so we do not know individual costings but it was reasonably busy. We should have had a double bed but had to make do with twin beds, seemed to be no alternative.

The Good:
1) Friendly service
2) Great food (especially the 'Lal Maas')
3) Helpful front desk staff
4) The deer feeding at 4:30 pm (kids loved it)

The not so good:
1) Sort of difficult to locate the first time

We stayed in the 'suite' which is essentially a room in the main lodge. The 'regular' rooms are located in one row in an annex e. The property is small and is easy to get around.

Tips:
1) As mentioned by others, bottled water is expensive. Either take your own or plump for the free filtered water they provide.
2) If you're a non veg, you must have the Lal Maas.

Shikarbadi Hotel must have seen much better times in the past - we had a room in the main building and it did not meet our expectations at all - spoiled floor, worn-down appliances and no style at all ...

In summary, the rooms are overpriced and kind of dull. The personnel, however, is friendly and always ready to help and the good is authentic and very tasty.

Room Tip: If possible, avoid the rooms in the main building ...

Has horses, deers and peacocks on its premises along with horses. Nothing much other than that the rooms are very small in size and again a highly priced property and not even willing to serve complimentary mineral water ...price of food quite high.

Avoid and go for better options in alteast 40% less price then shikarbadi

Room Tip: Avoid highly overpriced and low delivery in terms in quality of services.
