“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We stayed 4 days in this wonderful hotel in a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the garden with exoctic trees full of parrots. The bath room was a Little oldfashioned but
charrming. Cleanliness was overall fine. The restaurant "The Tiger Trail" offered extremely good food; very refined spicy dishes. The staff was very helpful. Opening times and deck chairs in the swimming pool area could have been a Little better. Location was fine in walking distance to the center.

Our first hotel experience in India, a great first impression. Staff courteous and helpful, room upgrade and a quaint old world charm.
The room was spacious, charming and a little quirky, the bed was amazingly comfortable. The dining space is in the courtyard and looks brilliant at night. The food and service were very good. We did have a safe in our room.
There is always some background noise in a city in India and this was no exception but did not disturb us at all.
A great hotel in a good position.

The hotel is located in prime area, very close to the palace and the markets. The staff if helpful even if some are somewhat forgetful. They did give an upgrade to a more spacious room on their own. Really appreciate that.

The breakfast buffet is rich in variety and pretty fulfilling. The Gym and swimming pool are there more as tick boxes especially the Gym.

It maybe a little on the "splurge" side of travel (wikitravel jargon), but still worth it considering there are no unpleasant surprises.

Room Tip: ground floor rooms maynot be a good idea. if your room has a balcony, try for first floor outside fa...

Stayed 1 night. Ok overall with good food for lunch and dinner, clean room, but 2 points make me give only a rating of 3: The air conditioning unit was not useable during the night because of horrible loud noises that clearly indicates that it needs to be repaired or replaced. Also, it is the only hotel during our 3 week stay in south india that did not have a safe (or even a lockable drawer) in the room, while there is more than enough room to put one: in the room, it clearly stated not to leave any valuables, you had to give your stuff at the front desk, where they put it in a drawer (not individual front desk safes like we sometimes see in older hotels). Fortunately, everything was ok, but still, a little bit unreassuring...

This is a Heritage hotel full of old world charm but with all the modern facilities we've all come to expect. It was built by the Maharaja of Mysore to house his guests. We were in a Royal Wing Room which was very comfortable and included in the price was a really great breakfast. The staff were all lovely and ensured we had a comfortable stay. The food was also great. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We like the style of this hotel, no futuresque design but real stuff, heritage included and preserved for the guests while delivering very good service. The rooms we had were not too big but had a balcony and served our purposes of 2 nights.

This is an interesting hotel with a lot of character. We had a spacious room on the 2nd floor, with a large veranda overlooking the front gardens and, beyond, the busy main road. All very pleasant, but spoilt by the traffic noise from the main road, which was incessant. Also, our sleep was disturbed by a noisy fridge in the room, and trains hooting from the nearby railway station. The shower was a heritage shower, and difficult to operate. The food here is excellent, and the swimming pool a delightful retreat at the end of a hot day.
