Betwa Retreat offers tents and cottages set in a beautiful garden in the centre of Orchha. We stayed 5 nights in a cottage, which was clean, a good size with a large comfortable bed and a good sized bathroom. The gardens are lovely full of flowers, birds and butterflies. The staff were very attentive, organised a trip to Datia, which... More

This is perhaps the best government-run property that I have come across in India. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the staff is courteous, and the food is nice (though we think that the breakfast buffet could have been much better -- we found it to be minimal, and the staff inattentive). The river flows on the other side of... More

The retreat is well located at less than a 5 minute walk to heart of Orccha and is right next to some of the historical sites. The onsite restaurant provides decent basic food, really the only minus is that the kitchen doesn't provide full meal services outside of standard dining hours but still does provide snacks. I stayed 3 nights... More

The Betwa Retreat is well laid out and maintained externally. Being a government run establishment, the rooms could be better equipped and maintained. The bathroom design is a nightmare for the morning call. The beds are very uncomfortable with foam mattresses. For the price they charge, one could get a much more luxurious place to stay. Value for money missing.... More

This MP Tourism hotel was much much better than its Khajuraho counterpart. Lovely location, quite, almost on the river, warm welcome and hospitality was good, beautiful garden, although property in not huge but good enough for us to move around. Lovely cottages, neat and clean, quick room service, and nice sitting area outside the cottage. swimming pool was clean and... More

We stayed in betwa retreat on the recommendation of MP Tourism in view of my parent’s age instead of their property at Sheesh Mahal and I must say that I am extremely happy with the recommendation. Betwa retreat was the party place of the rajas of old and you can still imagine the same in the ruins of the chaupal... More

The place is quiet. They have variety of rooms including Swiss tents to choose from. Rooms are good size with all the modern amenities. service is slow & shoddy, atypical government type. Pool is small but well maintained. Property can be much better if managed properly. Food is definitely on the costlier side.

Reaching Orchha a day earlier than planned made us stay at this very good Retreat on Betwa River. A property of MP Tourism, the place is serene and quiet to the core ! One can just walk out of the Retreat to be on the banks of Betwa and sit looking at the flowing waters. In the background, Cenotaphs of... More

I think the food over here is better made and cheaper than at the Bundelkahnd Riverside. The best thing is that the AC works and betcha you'd need it in October. The food is boring but I quite liked the tandoori thingies. Didn't stay here and can't comment on the rooms but the managers and reception folks are very nice... More
