We stayed at Orchard Palace for 3 nights in January 2016 and recommend it highly. We had a huge room (I believe it was Room 3) with a comfortable bed, good shower, new television and plenty of room to store everything. The room had a slightly art deco feel. Food is delicious! Our waiter, Ravi, took excellent care of us... More

Part of the group on a vintage car rally, the Gondal royalty has a good collection of old and vintage cars, which they used over the period. The hotel itself is part of the Orchard, decently maintained. Food is good. Just unwind, relax

We decided to visit Hotel Orchard Palace, Gondal to get away from the humdrum of city life for 2 nights. Mr. Parth was kind enough to allow us early check in at 7:30 am and we were allotted Room No: 3 which was really huge (about 700 sq.ft. and ceiling height of 15 feet). Since this hotel is used as...

Lovely old world hotel in Gondal where time moves at its own pace. A lovely rest spot after any hectic tour. All the people are spiritual and content in their own way. The 7 room accommodation is in the palatial guest house of the ruling Maharaja and gives you a peaceful feeling of Victorian times . Food is good home... More

I've had the chance to visit this hotel or rather the royal guest house while on a business trip. This can definitely be ranked as one of the best maintained heritage hotels in India. The hospitality of staff especially RAVI is wonderful. Must visit places: 1) Visiting the Naulakha palace and BAPS Swaminarayan temple 2) Trying the ice cream shop... More

Very well maintained palace hotel with the royal family as neighbours. The rooms are not glitzy and really elegant, reflecting the personal touch of the royals, giving the feel of a home stay with them. The staff are very friendly and the grounds are great to walk around. The collection of cars in the same compound is worth visiting. Guests... 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
