I have just returned from a 3-day stay at Sambhaji Vilas and I must say the property is exquisite, the staff is polite and painstaking and the hosts are very gracious, especially the young scion of the family who is extremely friendly, and ably handled the personal interactions very well. However I was disappointed with the food as the very... More

I hate to break a five star run for anywhere, and I have no negative feels about Sambhaji, but it was a slightly odd experience for me. My situation was different from other reviewers in that I was in Gwalior for 1 night alone, just stopping to see the fort before continuing on. I'm interested in Indian history so thought... More

Gosh, it is difficult to find, and I still don't know which part of Gwalior I really was in, but it is worth it. You are admitted into a world that an average middle class European hardly meets. The Angre family has lovingly preserved the family property over centuries and now allows paying guests to share their pride and enjoyment.... More

I read the reviews on Tripadvisor, saw the photos and frankly, I was afraid this place would be so way above my budget that I would not be able to afford it. I had no booking, so when my rikshah driver could not find it although he often asked, I was about to give up, but something kept me looking... More

This beautiful old mansion had the nicest room we ever stayed in. It was a suite, asctually with a beautiful sitting room. The air was brisk so they had a heater going when we arrived. The antique cars were a gas! We had breakfast and dinner here and felt like we were royalty. The gardens are beautiful and the setting... More

Fabulous place to stay in Gwalior. A real Indian property where you can feel as a part of the warm and caring family leaving in there. I have lived my fairy tail in Sambhadji villas. Strongly recommend to visit the place. Gwalior has plenty of sight seeing places to offer and much more. Can't wait to come back, this time... More

I have come across this wonderful place from the review in tripadvisor and it was a right decision to stay here. I was so impressed when I made enquiry about the booking. I can tell how hospitable they are from the way the e-mails were responded. This is the best place during my entire trip. Hosts and all staff are... More

It was an amazing experience of staying in this peaceful place in Jan.'14. The garden and villa are beautiful. Hosts are very friendly and food is delicious. If you plan to visit Gwalior in winter don't forget to take some warm clothes (we worn thermo underwear). The electric heater is provided upon your request. You do not find a TV... More
