“Excellent but sad detail”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

The place is gorgeous. The staff very helpful and the location excellent. Only sad part is that with the price they ask internet is not included and the price they ask for it is ridiculous. 700 plus tax for one day, hence 1k in total (10% of the room price or 300 for 2h) and the worst thing is that people cannot even log out and hence use it as needed. It runs continuously. A legalized robbery. Shame!

Location, service, amenities. This place is the real deal.
We had a "temple view" room which also had view over the swimming pool and it was a fantastic view to wake up to.
The service was outstanding, in particular at the excellent restaurant (our waiter Mukesh was just perfect) and both dinner and breakfast were fab. (Note: breaksast is a buffet but you can ask for pretty much whatever you want and it will be beautifully prepared for you!)
I will go back to Khajuraho and I will stay at the Lalit.

We were so grateful that this hotel, though pricey, had one room left for us after we checked into the Hotel Isabel palace near the airport, only to find that place totally inadequate for our needs. The manager at Lalit could not have been kinder and he found us a room for the first night in the main hotel, then offered us a room in the "guest block" the next night so that we would not have to worry about a room elsewhere in this very small town. Night 1 was great, with a delicious dinner and a room overlooking the exquisite pool. But the guest block room on night 2 was like a poor dorm room at an American university. We only got 2 minutes of hot water at a turn, the floors were dirty, and the sound of doors from other rooms closing went on till late at night and started early the next morning, owing to the hotel having overbooked and needing to put other large tour group guests in this block. Make sure you confirm that you will NOT be in the guest block! Dinners in the modest dining room were delicious, the location of the hotel is great for seeing the western temples, the grounds are lovely, and the staff are extraordinary. The breakfast offering was bland and small -- a buffet. Despite the few problems, we believe this is the best hotel offering in this amazing gem of a spot (the temples of Khajuraho were awesome). We literally saw 5 other top hotels after our mishap at the Isabel Palace (don't stay at the Isabel Palace unless you are young and/or on a very very tight budget).

I stayed 2nights at this hotel. Overall stay was very good. The hotel is walking distance from the Western Group of Temples which is one of the main attractions there. The service is absolutely wonderful, especially at the Panna restaurant. Mukesh, our waiter at the restaurant was amazing. I had requested for a particular dish one night prior. Not only did he ensure that it was prepared for us the next day but also remembered details as to what I liked. The hotel organises a 15 minute Light and Sound show which is brief but done well. You can only see the tops of the temples so even if you don't get the temple view room it is fine. Only one issue is that the front desk needs to be more informative.

A terrific hotel overall. Approached by a beautifully manicured driveway, greeted by an elegantly dressed doorman, what a treat to be welcomed into a spare and spacious lobby area decorated with local tribal ironwork and textiles. The rooms are lovely - ours overlooked the garden, but if you can score (or pay for) a temple view, take it! For dinner, order a la carte - as always, the buffet is warmed over, although breakfast is good. It seems that this hotel caters to tour groups, so be prepared for some congestion. The location is excellent, next to the temples. The pool, with its temple views, outstanding. The only irritation: the hotel charges for wifi service: honestly, when you are paying top dollar for drinks, etc., why on earth, in this day and age, forego this charge (as many other hotels do?). Terrific staff.

Room Tip: Ask for second floor temple view, but be prepared to pay more. Avoid ground floor rooms at the pool...

We spent one night in Kajuraho after a trip from Orchha, arriving after visit the temples and was great experience to find this hotel with all the amenities and comfort as any other property in a big city. The pool is facing the temples and the gardens are beautiful, even the bar has great service. The wi-fi is not included and the price of the restaurant is in the high side. We decided to have dinner outside, but later night we spent a great time at the bar with excellent service. Good breakfast with Indian and Western choices.

Just stayed one night here when I was in India, but it was excellent. Easy walking distance to the temples, or they'll drive you if you want. Didn't take advantage of the pool, but it looked beautiful!
