Be forewarned, don't go expecting the standards of a big city 5 star. The place is not as slick or as plush. However, its an excellent small town hotel.
Its an old property, the interiors remind one of old Hindi movie luxury hotels. There's a miniature golf course to while away time and a pool table. Also a tt table, and a small gym. There's a salon and a spa, though we did not try either. The swimming pool is probably the best part of the hotel, and you will always find plenty of guests chilling around the pool on deck chairs. Nice, big, green lawns.
It is well located. The prime temples - the Western group - and the town centre are less than a km away. Khajuraho, being a small place, other temples, light and sound show venue and MP tourism centre where a evening dance performance happens daily are all within a couple of km.
The rooms are generally comfortable, though a little worn down.The food is pretty decent, but not excellent.
The staff may not be the most polished, but in terms of hospitality, politeness and helpfulness, they are as good as they come. They are happy to accommodate you to the extent possible.
Considering how cheap the room rates are, as compared to regular 5 stars, its very good value for money. Food and drinks, though, are priced closer to regular 5 star rates.
