Overall; This hotel has beautiful rooms but many of the so called "Lake View Rooms" have a view that is partially obstructed by the lovely trees that stand between the hotel and the lake. Keep in mind too that this hotel does not sit on Lake Pichola, the larger of the two lakes in Udaipur, and the one with the famous Lake Palace. It is located on Fateh Sagar Lake. Also, its a bit away from the action that is centered more around the old city nearer to Lake Pichola.
The place is well maintained to a high western standard and the entire staff is very attentive and helpful.
Rooms: Large beautiful rooms with flat screen TV. However several channels (English language) had no sound. Very comfortable beds! Small bathroom with shower but no tub. Plenty of hot water at all times. All was very clean. We stayed in room #111 at the very end of the hallway (and building) which sits next to the huge outdoor generator that keeps the property running when the power goes out. The humming was so strong that it vibrated the mattress if you pressed your head against it, though could not be detected with a pillow and earplugs. We slept fine.
Breakfast: Very good buffet with eggs to order, juices, cereal, yogurt, fruit, six Indian dishes, plus various breads and rolls. Plenty of excellent food for all tastes. Friendly and helpful waitstaff.
Restaurant; Way overpriced. Up to 50% more per dish than most good hotels. Excellent food and friendly staff.
Internet; Outrageously priced. 200 Indian Rupees (about $4.00 US) sold in thirty minute blocks which run continuously once you start. There is no logging off and then logging back on later to start the clock again. It took several staff members to finally explain and admit to this. The log on - log off - log on again concept is a difficult one to get an answer on at many hotels in India though each hotel does it one of only two ways. Always ask. It still amazes us that the more expensive the hotel the more outrageous the Wi-Fi charges are. We knew someone in town who ran a 400 Rupee per night guest house (that's about $8.00) which included free Wi-Fi.
