This is a beautiful heritage property run (?) by the Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation and sadly mismanaged. The property is located on a small hillock within the confines of an fort. The surroundings, especially the old ruins of various officials of the king's court are magnificent. Totally enjoy this property, especially if you happen to visit it during the... More

Me and my wife stayed in room no.-7 in end march. The best thing about the hotel is its location.Although i was expecting a more "royal" room; but i would say it was quite average. the bathroom was really big though. One needs to climb around 15 steps to reach the room. The best thing about the place was its... More

It is a meeting with the history. Orchha is a paradise for tourist. It is a sacred place of palaces and temples. Sheesh mahal is an artistic palace hotel. Nice service. Very tasty food. Royal stay. If u r going to orchha ensure ur stay here and don't forget the light and sound show

Orchha is a must visit place and the best stay option is Sheesh mahal - Heritage property run by MP tourism. We had booked the Maharaja Suite for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our royal stay.

Excellent location, good food, nice and courteous staff, well managed by the GM. Experience royal living in the palace hotel, rooms are cosy and comfortable, very convenient since all the temples and sound & light show are right in the vicinity.

Sheesh Mahal sure has to be the gem in MP tourism's rooster. Amazing location. It surely can't get too better than this. Sheesh Mahal is and annex to the Jahangir Mahal and is practically sandwiched between the Jahangir Mahal and the Raja Mahal. One literally becomes part of the history staying at this place. The morning walks through the ruins... More

We had booked the maharaja as well as the maharani suite for 2 nights. It's the best place to enjoy the fort as well as the light and sound show as the hotel is within the fort premises. The hotel will also arrange passes for light and sound show as well as a guide for the fort. The maharani suite... More
