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
