It was our first visit to Gondal as a stop between Ahmedabad and Bhuj. Orchard Palace was a great surprise our room was huge with a three piece suite, fridge, dressing room and large bathroom, outside was a lovely balcony to watch the sun go down. The Manager was so helpful and as we were the only two people staying,... More

One of the two most enjoyable accomodations during our 3-weeks Gujarat-tour, using mostly heritage-hotels. In the Royal Oasis of Wankaner we enjoyed the aesthetics of pure Art Deco, here we found a very attractive building as well, although in regards to the decoration maybe a touch of too much European kitsch, especially in some of the paintings. But the place... More

Loved the car collection and I must say the maintenance and cleanliness is applaudable. Greatly recommended. Also suggested is to take a camera and take as many pictures as possible. Also check out the Navlakha palace if you have the chance and the time.

Delightful overnight stop - visited during the kite flying festival so lots of activity going on in front of the hotel. Large, comfortable room and very good bed - equally oversized bathroom with good hot water and shower. No complaints at all - staff friendly and welcoming, good view over mango orchard, genuine royal railway carriage displayed, newly laid out... More

Tall ceilings , artefacts , peacocks roaming in gardens, vintages cars, wooden furniture, HUGE rooms, BIG baths, and tranquility is what one sees at this guest house turned hotel. This is not run by any professional hospitality company. But by the royal family of Gondal whose guest house it used to be in the "Raj" days This hotel takes u... More

We stayed here for only a night -We got a room on the first floor which was very large and spacious and so was the toilet....My only complaint would be that the Bath Tub has no curtain and when anyone has a shower the bathroom gets wet, and slippery, so caution there.... For lunch, the guy at the reception suggested... More

This wonderful Heritage hotel is a delightful experience. Most people use it as a stop-off between Bhuj and Sasangir, but this is a destination in itself, and the nearby Naulakha Palace (17th cent.) is well worth a visit. The Orchard Palace grounds contain an outstanding collection of classic cars (all still in working order), the Rail Saloon of the royal... More

On our way from Rajkot to Ahmedabad we decided to visit the Orchard Palace and stop for lunch there. We loved the stop over and an hour's break became a three hour sojourn in this peaceful place. We spent some time exploring the vintage car museum which my son loved . Then a bit of a rambling walk along the... More

We had 3 nights at The Orchard Palace but it felt like we'd been there much longer. It was quite hard to leave and get back to our trip. Staying there was was perfectly lovely. It is a beautiful building and very well kept. Our room was enormous with a large double bed a big sitting area, plus an anteroom... More

We only had one night here as Gondal was just a stop over between Bhuj and Sasan Gir but we rather wished we'd had two nights. We were in Room 4 which was enormous, more of a suite really - we really liked it. The Art Deco furniture - 2 beds, chaise longue, desk and 3 piece suite were lost... More
