This is one of the hotels that wants to give the look and feel of ‘royal,’ and almost makes it. It has rooms with high ceilings, lots of lamps everywhere (that are easy to switch on via switches on their stands, or on the wire close to the stand rather than having to bend, trace its wire down to an...

We stayed for two nights (in June) for visiting Mysore. A charming property, well located and well kept. Food was good too. The minor blip was caused by the reluctance of the staff to serve meals in the courtyard for inexplicable reasons. It is right there next to the covered space they serve and it is the charm of the...

I know lot of people liked this place; but for me there was something missing here. I have stayed here for one night during June 2014 - Heritage room in the ground floor. While the room was big, the furniture were not maintained well. The food was OK and spread in the buffet for Lunch and Breakfast decent Indian food... More

The architecture fits the city of Mysore. A good hotel in the middle of the city. Easy access to all the attractions in Mysore. The railway station is very close. So close that you can hear the train sirens inside the property though not troubling. The rooms are clean. Service is great. Staff is courteous. Food is really nice and... More

We usually go to this place for business lunch. It as a good buffet spread and a landmark location. Wonderful rooms and a palatial dining hall. Food is good without being great. Usually has guests who are not well versed in dining etiquette. They will walk around with half eaten plates in their hands and go for a refill. Watch... More
