“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

This beautiful old mansion had the nicest room we ever stayed in. It was a suite, asctually with a beautiful sitting room. The air was brisk so they had a heater going when we arrived. The antique cars were a gas! We had breakfast and dinner here and felt like we were royalty.
The gardens are beautiful and the setting is soo romantic. Unfortunately, their water system failed in the morning, but they made the best of it.

Fabulous place to stay in Gwalior. A real Indian property where you can feel as a part of the warm and caring family leaving in there. I have lived my fairy tail in Sambhadji villas. Strongly recommend to visit the place. Gwalior has plenty of sight seeing places to offer and much more. Can't wait to come back, this time for pleasure. Thank you Sambhadji villas for the lifetime experience i had with you.

I have come across this wonderful place from the review in tripadvisor and it was a right decision to stay here. I was so impressed when I made enquiry about the booking. I can tell how hospitable they are from the way the e-mails were responded. This is the best place during my entire trip. Hosts and all staff are very friendly and helpful. Home cooked food was super delicious and is the best I have had before. I would strongly recommend this homestay if you come to Gwalior.

It was an amazing experience of staying in this peaceful place in Jan.'14. The garden and villa are beautiful. Hosts are very friendly and food is delicious. If you plan to visit Gwalior in winter don't forget to take some warm clothes (we worn thermo underwear). The electric heater is provided upon your request. You do not find a TV here, only books, but it seems quite natural for such a place.

This homestay was the most relaxing and peaceful place I have ever visited in India. The owners were friendly and helpful and my room was fantastic. The food was the best I have eaten in India and the service was friendly and accommodating. The owners arranged an absolutely fantastic tour by car in Gwalior and I really enjoyed the opportunity to see the city with their professional guidance. I really recommend this homestay!

I chanced about this place as I was reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. It's a little hard to find and is located in a busy part of the old Gwalior city. However, once your inside, it's a tranquil home away from home. The staff are excellent, ably led by the members of the Angre family. The food is home cooked and delicious and healthy. Rooms are nice and large and give you the feeling of living in a Haveli. The family could consider marketing their property a little more and perhaps offer more competitive prices.

Overall I would recommend this place if you are looking for a little different experience.

Gwalior not on your itinerary ? Add it, and stay here.
Difficult to know where to start in reviewing this place, the grounds, the rooms, the food, the service - everything is just so.
If you would like an authentic experience, staying in an aristocratic home/haweli in a non touristy area of india, then this is for you. The city has many attractions and it would be possible to spend the best part of a week here. The grounds are full of beautiful plants, especially birds and other animals, perfect for a romantic stay or with kids.
Food is all home cooked, fresh and very tasty - served as and when required. Want to see what an authentic Indian kitchen looks like, well come and see. Arriving early, no problem, leaving late, no issue - a lift to the station needed ? Consider it done. I could go on ...

If you are organising a trip with their guide (recommended) then make sure you agree what you would like to do before you go, the viewing of the town square can be missed, to see the area around the fort needs 4-5 hours, the city has some wonderful little temples, the palace is interesting especially the final few rooms and can be rushed through in an hour.
