We hadnt stayed here but had meals while touring the palaces. The food was good though very expensive. Orchha has a lot of foreign tourists so food outside too is excellent and available at a much lower cost. The rooms must be good as they are part of an actual palace but the lobby was part of the restaurant and... More

I booked this one only for the advantage that it is a heritage property and we do not have to travel for light and sound and site seeing. The reception guy was very generous to provide me a ground floor room on request for my 60+ years mother. Part of the palace converted into hotel with least possible modifications. So,... More

We spent two nights at the Sheesh Mahal hotel at Orchha recently. It's a heritage hotel run by the Madhya Pradesh government and is actually a part of the Jehangir Mahal. We can't comment about other rooms, but the Maharaja suite we booked was huge and nicely maintained and had WiFI. The staff was helpful and the food was average.

Positives ---> It's a different experience. Old Mahal (around 100 years) has been given make over as Hotel. Undoubtedly, this has best location in entire Orccha. Just next to Jahagir palace and Raja Palace. Great views all around. Just has 8 rooms, so you don't feel any crowd. Morning time and view is just amazing. You can see peacocks and... More

The first thing in favour of this hotel is its location inside the Orchha fort! In fact it is a part of the Jahangir Mahal itself. We didn't stay here but went for lunch to their restaurant in the middle of our fort visit. The food was good (we ordered chilli chicken, daal, naan and beer) and the service was... More

We stayed with our children in the Maharaja suite, which was fantastic. Lots of space! We felt a bit like royalty, if it had not been for all the flaws. No - everything is not working. The restaurant is overrated, although it serves french fries. Orchha is a place worth visiting, and if you're not fussy you will like Sheesh... More

what an hidden gem - if you are going to Orchha - stay here. Food is below average but if you go as a group - it is the best place to party. Take the maharaja suite and the the room in front and you have the best party setting. don't forget the speakers

A part of palace has been restored into a restaurant which is owned by MP Tourism. It offers a variety of cuisine with reasonable rates. The place is crowded during the peak seasons but one should definitely visit it if you want to experience eating in a palace.

No doubt about it, everything is Good. Rooms, Location, services etc. It gives you a royal feel. Go out for local shops. Best thing is it is a part of fort, We have amazing experience. Staff, Food also Good , No complaints.
