We stayed in Heritage rooms on the top floor which were excellent. Very large and well furnished. The bathrooms had not been modernised but I liked the fact that the character had been retained. Service was good and efficient throughout. Minor issues were fixed quickly and professionally. The hotel has an excellent bar and superb courtyard restaurant. The food quality... More

I've noticed that a lot, if not all of the positive reviews relate to heritage rooms. We had a royal room on the ground floor at the end of a long corridor. It was small, dark, noisy and a bit musty - not recommended. The pool area also seemed to be best avoided. The breakfast room was unprepossessing. On the... More

There are indeed echoes of the old colonial past in the grand surroundings of the restaurant. It is based in the inner courtyard of the hotel. The setting is splendid and the food does not disappoint.

We particularly asked our travel agent to find us a place which fitted the description 'faded glory' and this certainly fitted the bill. The first room we were offered ( as a free upgrade) was enormous and fit for a maharaja but was on the ground floor with little natural light. The very kind lady on reception found us an... More

Just loved the place. Old heritage property right in the middle of the city. Very classy place. We went for dinner which was in an open air central courtyard. The food was excellent & inexpensive. The desert was fantastic. Great food, lovely environment and open sky - made the dinner memorable.

We arrived at the hotel after a couple of hours in a taxi. When we got out of the taxi the sight of the hotel is impressive. The grounds are very quite compared to the hectic of the city. After checking in and some refreshments we were guided to our room. The room was really nice. High ceilings and a... More

We had booked a double room in the Royal Wing and were given room 103 which is a twin heritage room. Not sure if they are one and the same but like a previous reviewer we found room 103 very dark as there's no natural light in the room. Saying that it was perfectly comfortable and fine for our two... More

The hotel is a wonderful old building near the centre of Mysore. Our room spacious and clean and overlooked the trees of the central courtyard. The furnishings were a little old fashioned, but that was in keeping with the atmosphere of the place. The food was good and there is a small swimming pool to cool off in. You can... More
