“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Locationally, ideal - close to the airport and the highway, the property is impressive by its sheer physical size.
On a closer look, the glass facades make the property look ultra-chic. The interiors were trendy and lavish but unassuming and not garish at all.
We had the buffet lunch at the Cafe Piano. The hotel markets itself as one for he vegetarians. The soups and starters were excellent. Main course was an interesting fusion of vegetarian into traditional non vegetarian dishes like the lasagna, in which mince meat was substituted with minced soya. It was indeed delectable.
Though I was in the property for a short 1 hour for lunch, I assume the rooms would also be excellent. I would certainly out the The Grand Bhagwati on my next stay in Surat city!

Dear Atin Ji

Thanks for the excellent feedback.

We are looking forward to your next stay with us.

Surat Cabs and AMU cabs are a great and economical transport system started in Surat and these cabs are available at the hotel on call any time. TGB hotel is just 1.5 Kms from the airport and 10 Kms from the City centre and 14 Kms from railway station.

Our Duty Managers are there to provide any assistance at any given time.

Though a bit far from the main city, The Grand Bhagwati in Surat is a hotel I would recommend for any trip - business or leisure. The staff is very cordial and extremely helpful. The hotel rooms are very comfortable and the service is almost perfect.

The only thing the hotel lacks is a complimentary wi-fi service and non-vegetarian food options, which would make it complete in all respects.

Really loved my stay in the hotel

I happened to be at surat in april'2012. We had been staying with a family and planned to go out for Lunch - a vegetarian one at that.
We were taken to Mr. and Mrs. Somani (thought what a funny name for a restaurant) at The Grand Bhagwati.
I never had such good vegetarian food (in FUSION style) before. The entire experience was worth it. FINE DINING AT ITS FINEST.
Without any hesitation do I say --- ONE OF THE FINEST PLACES IN INDIA TO HAVE SOME REAL GOOD VEGETARIAN FOOD.

A very good hotel, max 6-7 mins from the airport, hotel staffs were very helpful, good was equally good, having all sorts of amenities like swimming pool, gym, no of restaurants.

It got movie theatre as well which is an added advantage. Only drawback is: out of the city

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

The Grand Bhagwati brings forth the following,
- Superb range of amenities (the club membership I heard is to die for amongst the Surtis)
- Rooms like no other in the city of Surat
- An amazing view of ONGC to one side, the airport to the other
- And did I miss out the amazing breakfast spread!!
- I heard they really specialise in the marriage arrangement thingy

Drawbacks,
- Distance from the main city (20 min drive. So all from bigger metros it is more like 1/10th of our day travel!)
- Pure Vegetarian 5-star!! (for 99% out there, it is a positive)

To compete with the best like the Taj all it needs is to spruce up their service,in terms of being 'naturally' compassionate... rather than being compelled to...

But anyway, 5-star all the way. The minus 1 star for the lil lack of 'perfect' hospitality!

Room Tip: Choose a room facing ONGC. Gives a great night view of the burning flame (would make more sense once...
