Gondal is a small city near Rajkot district of the Indian state of Gujarat. Gondal state was one of the eight princely states of first class in Kathiawar Agency during the Bombay Presidency. The place does not have many tourist attractions as such except few temples and a museum managed by the royal family of Gondal. The stay at the... More

Great food served by a super helpful and cheerful staff. Must mention Ravi here - he took extra care to make my stay a memorable one. The have a wonderful... More

We just spent a few hours on the property. A nice and laid back experience. The room in the ground floor overlooking the rail car and orchards has a pleasant ambience of Art Deco furniture. Breakfast was a decent spread of aloo parathas, poha and toast. It's ideal for a base to travel in saurashtra.

Nice place and good food, a welcome respite after coming from Kutch or Bhuj. Staff are cool dudes and helpful. Only complaint would be the mosquito fumigation at night so if you have a hearing problem let them know or flee as soon as you see the smoke. Ponds need fish in them so that the mosquito larvae will be... More

We stayed at Orchard Palace for 3 nights in January 2016 and recommend it highly. We had a huge room (I believe it was Room 3) with a comfortable bed, good shower, new television and plenty of room to store everything. The room had a slightly art deco feel. Food is delicious! Our waiter, Ravi, took excellent care of us... More

Part of the group on a vintage car rally, the Gondal royalty has a good collection of old and vintage cars, which they used over the period. The hotel itself is part of the Orchard, decently maintained. Food is good. Just unwind, relax

We decided to visit Hotel Orchard Palace, Gondal to get away from the humdrum of city life for 2 nights. Mr. Parth was kind enough to allow us early check in at 7:30 am and we were allotted Room No: 3 which was really huge (about 700 sq.ft. and ceiling height of 15 feet). Since this hotel is used as...

Lovely old world hotel in Gondal where time moves at its own pace. A lovely rest spot after any hectic tour. All the people are spiritual and content in their own way. The 7 room accommodation is in the palatial guest house of the ruling Maharaja and gives you a peaceful feeling of Victorian times . Food is good home... More
