“A peaceful oasis, good for experiencing local wildlife.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Pleasant staff though service quite slow,good food. We were in the low rise extension, our room was large and quite pleasant, a bit smelly outside due to the deer park. Great up close viewing of deer,chipmunks and monkeys. Peacocks in the grounds and plenty of bird life including kingfishers. Attractive lake with reflections of hills behind. Pleasant cacophony of sounds sent us to sleep and greeted us when we woke. Comfortable stay here.

This property is a bit away from the centre of the city. But the property has its own ambience and a charm of different era. If you are expecting something like a topend hotel kind of rooms this is not it. The rooms are spaciouis enough though.And the bathrooms are just about functional. The food is good and the staff is courteous and cooperative.

Room Tip: Any room which has a lake side view. Preferably Main Building rooms

I had gone to Shikarbadi Hotel with my extended family of six - 3 adults & 3 children. Shikarbadi is really a beautiful place. If you are looking for some slick sophisticated place then its not for you. This place is surrounded by nature and forests on all four sides. While we were there, deer were almost always right outside our door. And just before feeding time the entire herd of deer would come and wait. One of them was bold enough to feed directly from our hands!!! There were peacocks & monkeys there as well. But really the monkeys there were extremely well behaved. They didn't jump on our roof or create any kind of nuisance at all. They also had a cricket ground of their own, where I would find my son most of the time. Our rooms were facing the lake so you can imagine the number of birds that were right there.

The rooms were comfortably large, neat and clean.

And special mention has to be made regarding the staff. Always polite, helpful, courteous.

The food was delicious. Starting with the breakfast, which was sumptuous, and the variety of food placed at the buffet table is something else. Then of course came lunch & dinner, which was equally great.

Thankfully the hotel is about 10 minutes away from the city. But unfortunately they have tied up with a taxi company which is not very honest money wise. Its called Comfort Tours & also goes by the name IndiTravels. The hotel may want to disassociate itself from these dishonest people.

Thank you Shikarbadi for a superb stay.

Never expected such place existed in Udaipur..very calm, close to Nature. And on the top of that hospitality of HRH group staff. One of the most memorable stay.

Ideal place to go if you are looking for a peaceful place. I was there on a business trip and it was a great experience. Food was excellent. I would love to go there again when lake is full with water.

Its a bit laid back but the place has some charm. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom is not great but one can cope. The smell of horses is intense but has dears and other animals. As i came here to visit the city, for me it was not a good choice. Its far away from the center so i had to dinner in the hotel. The food was ok and the breakfast was ok too. I wouldn't recommend it for a tourist visiting udaipur

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building are more charming

We had gone to Udaipur in the month of January to attend some function.
Our stay in Shikarbadi hotel was for around 2 days. The check in was done at around 10 AM and post that, we moved to our rooms. They were quite big and were well maintained, clean.
We fond the ambience of the place to be very good and close to nature.
The service of the staff was also very good and friendly. The food was quite good, though we would have been happy with more variety. I would say that it is a place worth staying.

We booked the hotel basis the reviews available on tripadvisor and must say we were not disappointed. The staff was courteous and helpful. We were in room number 16 and could enjoy the tranquil view of the small lake and the chirpness little birds and deers on the other side. We could have our very first hand experience of feeding the deers by our own hands my two year old daughter was thrilled with the whole activity and still taks about it. The breakfast was sumptuous and good. The hotel has an old world charm in it. We got an opportunity to see the horses as well , one of the attendants showed us around and did share his bit of knowledge around history of the place. The hotel is a little far off from the city (around 4 Kms) therefore at times can be a point of botheration at times.
