Stayed here while visiting Mysore, for an experience of the royal grandeur, but it wasn't really an experience I would go back to - it was a huge let-down due to the bad state of maintenance at the palace. Suggestion would be to stop over for a lunch & tour the palace. You can request them to get you a... More

It was my childhood dream to stay in this Hotel since we all revered the Mysore Royal Family being part of Mysore Area! Though I got to stay in not its prime days, it was still royal in many ways. The very property itself is located in a serene location overlooking a part of Chamundi Hills. The rooms are clean.... More

This was a real palace and is a huge one. Excellent place. Though the rooms, furniture are old type. Maintained fairly well. Food is no that good. Should be improved a lot. All other facilities are good.

I had booked the hotel with lots of hopes of a palatial stay. As we entered premises, I was awestruck looking at the magnificent structure. What an imposing building it... More

We were delighted as we landed in the premises of this hotel which was certainly resulted to disappointment as the staffs were really not friendly. Its a beautiful property but maintenance was not so... More

I visited Lalitha for the buffet lunch as recommended by Lonely Planet. My spouse and I got SEVERE food poisoning from the buffet here which costed us 2000 rupees. Unable to keep anything down for 24 hours. We had to cancel our travel plans and trains. Very frustrating. Contacted Lalitha Mahal and asked them to investigate to prevent other visitors... More

Helpless sadness is the word to describe this property. A true blue blood property that is under slow neglect. The external facade has been maintained well. The place is slightly off the ring road and is not too difficult to find on gps. We booked a heritage room. Booking a heritage room is not easy online as they are not... More

We went there as the palace looked attractive from outside. They charge 100 INR pax for entry which can be adjusted in food if you dine at the restaurant. The first floor is closed for visitors and ground floor is nice but not as grand as it looks from outside. The dining hall is grand and impressive however the furniture,... More
