Staff are very friendly and aim to please. We stayed at the regents suite. Very spacious and majestic. The lounge area could be more tastefully designed. But currently has these two extra beds, this would be ideal of traveling with children, but for just a couple it's not very tasteful. The grounds are nice and enjoyable. Wifi is limited to... More

One of the best Heritage Palace Hotels we have stayed.Its architecture,size,garden,interior halls,dinning area,decoration,everything has this luxurious feeling of an aristocratic colonial & Indian past. The approach to the Palace,bypassing the lush green roadways,silent pathways,welcoming flags.The Palace grounds accentuates the alpine look of the place with its manicured gardens,firs & cedars. The Palace is spread out over 50 acres of green... More

went just after the New year peak season....lovely looking property no doubt. However, whats is more charming is the level of personalized service . .from every member of the staff......one interaction with the general manager, and we knew excellent service is in their DNA. Nice room, and well done bathrooms. Spotlessly clean hotel... even the top edges of photo frames... More
