“Natural Beauty horribly maintained!! Only the Lake and the Boat ride...that's it!!”
The drive up to Siliserh lake is the way back from Sariska and towards Siliserh. You have to take a turn towards your left and drive for another 5 kms inside when this hillock and a Palace on top of it beckons you. This place is now a tourist spot and there was a lot of crowd. The first views of the Lake are gorgeous !! The Lake is huge and stretches to miles and miles of placid water which are blue and green in color. You can enjoy boat rides and paddle boats which we decided we would venture out to post our lunch as we were crazily hungry.
This was the biggest turnoff for us. The Siliserh Lake Palace is supposed to be a tourist Hotel and the way the Government has maintained it is absolutely pathetic. There is one canteen inside the Palace which is run by a guy at the counter who definitely needed at least 1000 classes on Customer Service. The service is pathetic, you have to buy and also the best part was, the menu displayed in the wall said a whole range of items, which when we went up to order, were told that we could only get cheese, vegetable sandwiches and cold beverages. The Canteen inside is filled with honey bees, insects and almost every possible flying insect which makes your life miserable. We ordered the cheese sandwiches, vegetable ones and omelette's for lunch unfortunately. There is no electricity during the day and the sun is scorching ! Would definitely not advise for old and kids.
We spent about INR 50 each for an entry ticket and another 400 bucks for a paddle boat for 1 hour. The food cost us something around INR 350/. The only highlight was the boating which we all enjoyed and the middle of the Lake is quite amazing.
The Siliserh Lake Palace is also where you can stay over for weekends as it has been very well marketed, however our experience of the Place as well as the only Canteen available and the service was pathetic. I for one would never go there again !
