This hotel had a beautiful garden but that does not make up for the dumpy and chilly rooms. The beds only come with a duvet (uncertain how this is cleaned between guests) and no sheets. The garden was lovely and where I spent most of my time as the rooms were cramped, dark and cold. We stayed with a tour... More

We were offered a choice of rooms on the ground floor. We chose the one with the best bathroom, ie. it had a shower cubicle. Lovely room. Friendly people, lovely garden. Restaurant lacked ambiance..........needs carpets/rugs in winter, and a few small tables dotted around for couples.

This is a good location for a visit to Bundi. The hotel itself is located in an impressive building. But unfortunately some of the rooms in the older section are far from impressive. Whilst reasonably clean, they are dark and dingy. We visited in a group. Whilst we were fortunate in having hot water there were some in our party... More

We are staying for one night in room 202. To be honest one of the worst we had during the trip. The hotel is one of the better options to stay but there is a bigdifference in quality between the rooms. The hotel is split in an older part (rooms starting with a 2) and a newer part (rooms starting... More

We stayed here with a tour group at the end of December and found it to be a very reasonable hotel just outside the centre of Bundi. It has a pleasant courtyard with plenty of seating regardless of the time of year. We sat outside around a fire and it was good. Rooms are set around the courtyard and at... More

The hotel does look ok when you arrive but our group were all disappointed with the food which was very bland. People on the ground floor had a lot of noise from the road very early on, the beds were like rocks and creaked every time you moved. Ok location a short bus ride to the Wells and the palace....

This hotel seemed impressive when we first arrived with all the fountains and lovely outdoor areas. However these were soon turned off and our room was like a cave. It smelt strange as well. It was cleanish but I tried not to look too closely. No hot water and the manager acted surprised when I complained about this and suggested... More

We stayed here one night 22nd February 2013. A former royal palace, still lived in by the current maharajah. We had room 102 on ground floor near Reception. It was a very large room, with a small dressing area off it and a huge bathroom. Unfortunately it was all a bit dark and bleak. The bathroom was styled as a... More
