We choose this hotel as our travel companion had eaten here during his previous visit to Udaipur & had a great experience. We arrived to an indifferent welcome, certainly not the level of friendliness we had experienced at other hotels in India. We felt like we were a minor irritation & not valued guests! We had booked for 3 nights, only one of which was in a superior room as it was fully booked. However we did know this to be case before arrival. Our room was fabulous with fantastic views onto the lake. However our friend had a room overlooking the restaurant/bar area and the level of noise was unbearable late into the night & then early in the morning. He complained & was moved to a room at the back of the hotel which was fine. Our standard room was also very nice. We ate in the restaurant a few times & although the food was good, we didn't think it was outstanding as some other reviews have suggested. Unfortunately the staff in the restaurant were just as surly as the staff on the reception desk. Although in the end we did find one waiter who was pleasant and attentive. Another issue was that there was no water in the pool! We did not know this would be the case until we arrived. The location of the hotel is magical overlooking the lake & the grounds & rooms were good. However the attitude of the staff really let the place down.
