I loved the heritage room setup and waiters were really warm. Need to fix somethings and it will be a top notch hotel. Rooms near the restaurant are too noisy and bathroom faucet wasnt working when we checked in.

This structure was built by Mysore Maharaja in 1920 for his European guests. It's a classy building which has been well maintained by Royal Orchid group. The breakfast was quite ordinary. They have a nice restaurant which runs in the courtyard. Cozy for dinner. While the hotel has a small gym, spa is missing. Tip:Try to stay in the royal... More

Stayed for a 3-nights from August 31st to Sept 2nd with family. Being a Mysorean i take pride in a heritage hotel like this but was disappointed with the overall upkeep of the room. The housekeeping can do a better job. The breakfast buffet isn't served if they have less customers. Lunch spread however is very good.

This hotel was originally built as accommodation for the guests of the Sultan of Mysore. While I wouldn't describe it as palatial, for those who like an authentic Colonial experience with the minimum of modernisation this hotel will certainly come as a welcome alternative to the modern monstrosities springing up in so many Indian cities. The ambience was more private... More

we stayed at this hotel on the night of 15th August. Great ambience. Good food. Service at Tiger Trail restaurant needs to be upgraded as we had to wait longer than required for our food. Would recommend.

We stayed in a heritage room and our favourite aspect of the accommodations was the large private balcony, furnished with comfy chairs. It was a nice place to sit outside and relax in comfort and privacy. The room itself was also comfortable and clean, with good amenities and a large TV with many channels.
