“Heritage and hospitality!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is a nice place to stay for an experience - very large rooms well done up, excellent food served in the specialty restaurant, and well mannered and welcoming staff. One of our drivers of the hotel's car - Praveen Chauhan - gave some excellent service. While the ambiance is nice and stay is relaxing (loved the swing in the room - a typical Gujarati tradition), the hotel needs to improve its noise proofing - the traffic noise is very disturbing and even the adjacent rooms voice can be heard. The pricing seems high, though, despite all the positive aspects.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road side to avoid external noises.

Did not stay, but had dinner and hosted Banquet or ~150 guests.
the ambience is exotic as are the interiors - especially at night, the place comes alive with lighting.
Check out their various Thali options, that are not only mouthwataring, but also served with elegance and LOVE (mostly missed at other locations). Amdavadi's love food and the Maharaj here knows what works best. Staff are friendly and more customer oriented - willing to go that extra mile to put a smile on the guests.
Their a-la-carte menu also dishes out good stuff, bit pricey though.
Parking is at a premium, but Valets are industrious and don't make guests wait longish periods.
MUST VISIT!

Room Tip: Traditional Gujarati Thali is best

A lovely old house yes but not a particularly relaxing or comfortable place to stay. The noise from the street pervades the whole hotel and there is no courtyard or similar to relax in. The staff on reception were neither particularly efficient or friendly.

The House of MG, a Heritage hotel may not be the best in town, but it is a large house full of character, offering luxury in a lovely Indian style. We stayed two nights. We were offered a suite with a very spacious sitting room decorated with family portraits. In our bedroom , we were intrigued by a large swing hanging from the ceiling and an overhead mirror over the bed. The bathroom was modern and well equipped. The information brochure is bulky and not informative enough about the facilities available. Cleanliness is average.
We had diner on the top floor at ‘Agashiye`, a thali restaurant. Food was good, but the experience disconcerting as we hardly knew or saw what we were eating, and we are weary of green chili...! We preferred the Greenhouse Cafe, in a verandah downstairs.
A bit noisy since it is in the centre of a chaotic intersection. Location is excellent for visiting the old town, as Siddi Saiyad Mosque is right across the street. The staff were pleasant but even at the reception they had difficulty speaking English. Airport is within easy reach with the hotel limo.

This fine property combines real character with a degree of luxury in a particularly Indian style which for us represents why you travel to this kind of destination in the first place. Apart from the spaciousness and the wood panelling etc, Our room also had a large Gujerati style swing (which we understand is a common feature in many Gujarati homes ) and a overhead mirror (!) (not sure if that is also a common feature in Gujerati homes)
Attached to the hotel is the Greenhouse Cafe which serves a wide selection of food and great coffee. On the top floor you have their thali restaurant which makes for an interesting experience in its own right. With regard to some of the previous reviewers comments as to the lack of a lift in the right place and a very small step into the shower,with all respect, perhaps they would be better off in a modern, chain,hotel where such issues would not arise; which is not to say that the plumbing and other facilities here are not first rate, they are.

This is a rambling old mansion that is charming and unusual. Our room was large and comfortable. A/C was good; wifi was good (room had its own router). Service was top notch. Good location, right across the street from the Siddi Saiyad Mosque. A bit noisy since it's right in the middle of the old city. Breakfast was to order and very good. On site restaurants were very good.
