Truly a Palace

On the outskirts of mysore close to race course, the ambience and the view is amazing. Well maintained place with nice options for food.

Despite some negative reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to visit the Lalitha Mahal restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is gorgeous! If you come around 8 it's mostly tourists, but an hour later the Indian people come for dinner too. The food was good, a little pricey, but the surroundings are worth it. Staff is attentive and pleasant!

This is a typical example of old grandeur wasted by poor government operations. The food in the restaurant was very basic, and the place is not at all well maintained. The staff is lazy and do not understand a word of hospitality. Save your money.

My family and I visited Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel in Mysore this afternoon for lunch, and there is not one thing that we found to redeem our awful experience. The outside of the building certainly has the regal palatial look but everything goes rapidly downhill form there on. Stepping into the Palace makes one wonder why the decor is so... More

We dined in the vast dining room, under a stained glass ceiling. The food was delicious and the service top class. It's a space best suited to a large gathering such as a wedding, so with only a few tables occupied, it lacked atmosphere.

As said by others, stunning location, average food. Best come for a cup of tea and have dinner elsewhere.

Such an impressive hotel so we went for afternoon tea. We were put in a corridor and left. The tablecloths were filthy and there was a musty smell. A cup of tea was all we got - not even a teapot Very disappointing. It could be such a lovely place but the staff just aren't interested!

The restaurant is located on the ground floor of this grand, old palace. The building is beautiful, the restaurant too reflects some of the past glory. Unfortunately, it does require professional maintenance. I think because it is part of Ashoka group (a govt initiative), the employees do not have any motivation for better service and maintenance - just get the... More

The Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel is an attractive building with pretty gardens. Inside is like a step back in time, the grandeur is still there but it does need some tlc to bring it up to it's reputation. We called in for some light refreshments and the prices here reflect it's grandeur. It's a shame the owners don't recognise it's... More
