This is an interesting property in a great location with a wonderful view. If it was managed by, say, Neemrana, it could be a great hotel. Instead it is managed by the government. It is clear that there are some inalienable functions of government; what is not clear is that providing hotels is among them. A lethal combination of low... More

A very well kept heritage hotel. We can enjoy the traditional decorations and artifacts as well as modern facilities. We did not stay in the hotel but went round and saw thw hotel and the rooms. The rooms were very clean and neat and it was fully booked. I wish I would go and spend a night or two there... More

I spent a night here in this hotel in july. This feeling of staying a night inside a fort is amazing, you actually feel very powerful(though short lived) Staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful. Initially room allocated to us had issues with AC they promptly shifted us to other room. Rooms are cozy and comfortable.Rooms are equipped with all... More

Spending the night in a palace is always something special,but if you can do it at a normal price,that's the real thing. Even the restaurant wasn't expensive and there was cold beer available. The views at night, the atmosphere......just perfect.

After few days in Agra in a well located but not so good place, we were not expecting much in a small town like Orccha. What a surprise when we entered Sheesh Mahal! This is the only hotel located in the palace area, which makes it unique and incredible. The building itself will transport you to old times. The service... More

This very small town (Orchha) 3-4 drive from Khajuraho has a beautiful old palace built back in the 1500', very remarkable and interesting to go explore the inner walls and towers of, the adjoining hotel was once part of the original castle, bathroom which they allow you to use is basically just a hole in the ground. Run by the... More

This hotel left us feeling quite disappointed. The main problem was the mosquitoes... There was a device plugged in to keep them away, but the windows didn't close well and there was space under the door, so they just kept coming in. It's a pity, because the location is ideal, the staff was nice and the breakfast was good. But... More

We (my husband, my daughter and I) had booked the Maharani suite to treat ourselves to a bit of princely feeling in an old palace. I suppose it it the fact that the place is government run that made it impossible to fulfil expectations. The room was huge, the bathroom with marble bath tub and sink amazing and the toilet... More

As we drove into the Palace Complex of Orchha we experienced an Aha! moment. The long, uphill, leafy driveway reminded us of romantic mystery novels of yore. At first glance it was difficult to comprehend the hotel layout but once we entered the reception area we were captivated. The rooms, located at different levels of the palace, were furnished with...

Orchha Sheesh Mahal is right inside the majestic Orchha fort. Although MP government properties are one of the best across all states, but rooms of Sheesh Mahal don't do justice (room images look deceptive). They are nice but could have been far better. However, there is a small library at the reception, which has amazing coffee table books on Madhya... More
