When we arrived in Bharatpur,we thought oh lordy,what have we done.there is a dismal dual carriageway on which are situated all the hotels for Bird watching and it looks pretty grim.The standard room we were shown was very dark and grim and slightly stale.We asked to be shown another room and were taken to the garden and stayed in a bungalow.This was lovely and very clean and comfortable. Keoladeo National park was literally a 5 minute walk to the entrance.The staff were lovely and helpful...an exception being the gardening lady who kept asking for money,which was annoying.
The food wasn't wonderful,but it wasn't awful....just vaguely disappointing.If you are unlucky enough for the hotel to be really busy,then breakfast is buffet and really not great.We met some lovely people staying there. I would go back for it's proximity to the park

Room Tip: Opt for the garden rooms..the others are too dingy and depressing.

We stayed here during our trip to bharatpur 16-17 Mar 2014. The rooms are good and clean. There is nothing much to do in the hotel as such, it is located almost at a walking distance from the bird sanctuary, the staff is good and helpful. It's a very good place for a budget stay costing just between Rs. 2000 to 4000. It is good place to stay if you plan to also travel to Fatehpur Sikri, Agra or Mathura. It's right on the highway.

Largely polite staff, decent room, average food, poor breakfast. Amongst the large photos of tigers on walls, one of a lion held some amusement. Well located -- a minor hop, skip, and jump away from the national park.

Official name is " Keoladeo Ghana National Park," but it is commonly known and referred to as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary.
Made a quick trip to Bharatpur from Delhi. Stayed at Sunbird Hotel and Family Restaurant.Location is very convenient as it is less than a kilometer from the bird sanctuary.
Initial impression was not overwhelming as the building did not appear imposing at all.Even the name board of the hotel was unimaginative and pedestrian .
We had booked what they term as " Super Deluxe" Rooms. These rooms are located in newly ( relatively) constructed building and the rooms were the the only good part .As there is no selection for "Good" it can not be rated as such and rooms were the only reason for which
" Very Good" rating is given.
Food , Breakfast ,lunch and dinner were just about average .
Smell of mosquito repellent spray was quite strong and serious for people with breathing problems . All the windows and doors were kept open with ceiling fans at full blast before the entry to the room became tolerable.

Had a terrible time in this hotel. Cottage 64 is a shed that's been converted into a room for rent. The tent lining the roof hasn't been cleaned for at least a few months. The smell of pesticides and fumigation is unbearable. The rooms are full of dust and bathrooms are cobwebbed. Not a rustic place, it's dirty. The food isn't great either.

Wont recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Do not book cottage number 64

We visited Bharatpur with no hotel reservations, did quick queries at some hotels upon arrival and chose to stay here, particularly due to its location and oh yes! because rooms were available.

Located very close to the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary, it is a decent and reasonable hotel we could have wished for. They have Standard, Delux and Super Delux Rooms, both AC and Non AC, along with some cottages, all of which were cosy, nice and clean. I was happy to see clean bathrooms and linen and very happy to know there was 24*7 running hot water available!

The property was huge with a park, but flooded with mosquitoes, however, every room has mosquito repellent. The mattresses were too soft and might not suit everyone. The hotel staff, although very limited, was very accommodating and gentle. As nothing is available nearby we ended up having dinner at the hotel restaurant. The food was good especially the Lal Maas (ordered a-la-carte). However, they have limited options for dessert, we ordered a fruit custard and it was a total disappointment. The breakfast buffet was also good with a combo of desi and continental breakfast, but had limited options.

All in all a good experience with no regrets!

Room Tip: Opt for Rooms on the First Floor facing the park or the Cottages.

A hop skip and jump from the entrance to the bird santuary. Room and breakfast can be better but they are the best you can get in the middle of no where ( which is where Bharatpur is )!
They can arrange a guide etc
