“Royal Luxury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Stayed here for two days in May, 2014.The property is heritage and royal all through. our stay in the property has taken us to the times of royal era. The ambiance and the rooms are very well crafted remembering the bygone era of kingdoms.
having cup of tea sitting in the balcony in the morning would was a wonderful experience me and my wife had as we could see several parrots, humming birds and birds of all kinds giving a visual feast to the eyes and soothing sound to your ears. even-though the property is in the middle of the town the greenery and the nature is well maintained.
The only hiccup is vehicle sound now and then which can be ignored.

It was an awesome experience at ROYAL ORCHID. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Room was spacious and very clean.
Swimming pool facility was very nice, I and my son enjoyed swimming pool like anything.

Food was tasty, though service was slow.

Hotel and rooms are heritage in style, people may feel a bit old, but certainly everything was working fine.
Our room has been upgraded to one level up in luxury :-)

Very impressed with the quality of service at this hotel. Very attentive, professional and friendly staff. The room was beautiful and very clean with high ceiling, heritage furniture and a private veranda. The bathroom was not to my taste as you had to climb into the bath tub to have a shower but the water was hot and there were bathrobes and slippers. The food was very good although we did go to a hotel nearby called the Quorum for evening snacks and that was even better. Handy for the centre of Mysore by auto rickshaw.which line up outside the hotel but far enough away from the centre to have a quiet retreat.

Stayed here for 3 days at end of March 2014 in a "heritage" room on the ground floor. Very spacious comfortable and clean, although bathroom a bit old fashioned and slightly shabby(behind the door!), everything worked OK. This room faced out over the garden and nearby road, but noise was no problem; recommend this type as it includes a verandah and chairs. Rooms facing on the inside courtyard, where the open air restaurant is situated might be a bit noisy. Staff excellent, efficient and friendly. Food also very good with ambitious a la carte evening meals; service got a bit ragged when very busy, but they all did their best.

Room Tip: See review, recommend heritage outside room on ground floor

We visited for some heritage style over dinner when staying at the hotel next door.
The food was just as good as next door, but the surroundings were more atmospheric.As it was low season it was quiet and we could only eat outside. It was very enjoyable.

This hotel used to be the lodgings provided by the maharaja for his European guests, so it has loads of old world charm. We noticed the Venetian mirror in our room was very similar to some we saw in the palace.
Having said that it is, of course, not ultra modern. The bathroom was spacious in all directions and had a hot water geyser. This worked perfectly so wasn't a problem at all.
The food was good and the service excellent. All the staff tried their best even if some younger ones weren't quite so well trained.
It was a lovely place to stay in Mysore.

Room Tip: Inner rooms might be better. We had a balcony but it faced the road so was pretty noisy with the doo...

Entering this wonderfully tree surrounded heritage hotel is like travelling back in time.
Charming Lobby.
Rooms are large with balconies - though a bit old fashioned (some might say in need of modernization), personally, i think, this is the charm of the hotel, it gives you feel of a different era.
Restaurant is very well known and serves excellent food.
Entering the bar is once again, entering into a different era. It could be open bit longer.

I enjoyed my stay.
