The best place to enjoy the typical royal lunch. amazing palace though it's a converted into a hotel, one can often bump into some movie shooting and if lucky can catch up some known actors of south Indian cinema. fantastic food, amazing spread, great ambience overall a worth the money visit.

Visited the palace with 100 rs entry ticket. Very limited area to be covered inside the palace for visitors. Most of the palace was under painting and renovation work. Could not see the finest view of the palace.

The hotel is really beautiful with high ceilings, wide corridors lined with beautiful paintings. The restaurant with its domed skylights and high ceilings is really a must visit. Everything in the hotel is beautiful and heritage except when you come to service which is practically non existant. Maintenance of bathrooms which are leaky have not been attended. So If you...

On 30th May'16 had been to the palace restaurant along with my wife to have evening coffee and snacks. That was the first visit of mine to palace restaurant. Inspite of negative reviews thought of visiting once. ! They charge Rs.100/person at the entrance gate, for which you get a so called free coffee/tea (along with cockroach). ! Found nothing... More

This magnificent structure requires no mention and it's a treat to the eyes. Standing tall amongst all structures and second only to the Mysore Palace this is a masterpiece. However it has been in the wrong hands. I have always believed government has no business to be in the business of hospitality and LMPH is a fine example. It has... More

We had lunch here. The restaurant was once a beautiful ball room. Only the ambience is great. Quality of food is rather poor. Needless to say this is because its a government run hotel.

The palace was built in 1921 at the orders of His Highness Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, the Maharaja of Mysore for the exclusive stay of the then Viceroy of India. Built on... More

My father kept telling me about how glorious the Lalith Mahal Palace Hotel was back in the day so we decided to give it a try this time only to be highly disappointed. The palace is beautiful and when you enter they ask you to pay for tea/coffee at the gate with a head count. To our dismay, the palace... More

We had lunch at Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel while driving to Bangalore from Kabini. Heard about this place on one of the travel forums and therefore visited the place though we had to drive inside the city. Your orders could take 5-10 mins more than what the staffs promise, however we really liked the food they served.

Thank Bakpakker
