“Nice business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Nice business hotel in heart of Vadodara. Close to the Vadodara Palace and a 20 minutes drive from Vadodara Airport if traffic is smooth. Has a modest sized conference room capable of seating around 100 people. Has a coffee shop which for some inexplicable reason serves a buffet of primarily Punjabi food. I had expected a nice Gujarati spread and was a bit disappointed. The spread though was nice with good variety; the staff is extremely courteous. Car parking is free.

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. On arrival the concierge assisted us with our luggage to reception. Check in was slow and reception desk staff were a little reserved. One of the managers came out to deal with our booking. He was really kind and sorted the problem out as swiftly as possible. He personally showed us to our room. There were three of us sharing a club room and a spare bed was brought in immediately given that we had been travelling for nearly 20 odd hours. He gave his direct dial and really made us feel welcome. Laundry staff were very kind and generally any member of staff who you passed acknowledged you. The room was fairly spacious. This hotel gets 100% for cleanliness, not a spec of dirt or dust. The bed was extremely comfortable and I believe a queen size bed. The bathroom was very nice and up to date. There were two showers, both were very powerful and no problems encountered with hot/cold water. The air con was also fully functional as was the flat screen TV. As we were in India for a bereavement and with limited time to go out and about, our meals mainly took place in the hotel restaurant. Breakfast: excellent choice and hot food provided, this was included in the bed and breakfast price. I would recommend the masala omlette. Not spicy and ever so light. Lunch: there was buffet or all a carte. In buffet the staff served a soup, starters and top ups about 3 times followed by a selection of at least 10 dishes veg and non veg, followed by a very good selection of desserts. Dinner: was in the same format as lunch and again a variety of food and different each day. Staff: very attentative. They do stare at your table and can be a little off putting but they are trying to provide you with the best service. I asked for the bill one evening and there came along a hot cup of milk!! It was delicious....probably full fat! which i had every evening and didn't get charged for it!. Bottled water costs about 75 rupees. With water and 3 buffets it came to 1500 rupees for dinner/lunch and works out to about 20 quid altogether!! On leaving the hotel there were some problems with their systems. Again the same manager came out, Vikram and dealt with the situation. He also helped wheel our luggage out. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone familiar or not familiar with the area. Car hire is a little expensive and need to be booked in advance but they make things happen in this hotel unlike some that leave you to sort it out yourself. There are banquets available for hire by the public so loud music can be heard but didn't seem to last any later than midnight. The only bad thing was that as soon as it hit about 11pm, stray dogs howled like there's no tomorrow all the way until 4am. We had a free newspaper in English delivered daily. The TV channels were not that great so best to take a tablet or laptop with films which you can wire up to the TV. The other minor point was we got woken up at 11.45pm the night before check out as they thought we were due to checkout that night. 2bottles of free water was also delivered to the room daily. Please do stay at this hotel or any of their other chains around India, you will not be dissapointed.

Me and husband stayed at this place on our Wedding/Honeymoon night and the rooms were simply great. The services were very nice and the room was really clean. They don't let us check in without proper identification which was impressive when we think about security. It simply indicates the standard of the hotel. The room and services were completely like we are used to in USA.

Furthermore, I took some pictures of the room, keys and the cake they had in the room etc. in order to keep memories from our wedding night but Unfortunately, my phone was restored and I lost all the pictures I had. :( I emailed the hotel staff and within less than 24 hours they emailed me the pictures of all possible Room views, even a new Cake with our names on it etc. (They were much better than the pics I originally had). I am glad to see how they went out of their way to satisfy a customer.

Everything was beyond our expectations. I would rate them 10/10. Will surely visit them again.
Definitely Recommended!!!

This hotel exceeded all expectaions. All the staff were very friendly, polite and extremely approachable. They ensured to take interest in my well being and addressed me by my name everytime they saw me. The restaurant food was brilliant and for someone who loves their desserts, I had had a field day! The rooms were clean and were kept to great standards. I would like to thank the hotel Manager Vivek for helping us out with all our queries and ensuring we got a room to stay in after not receiving our check in dates by the travel advisor.

Room Tip: Don't ask for the room to be on the road side as all you hear is dogs howling at night.

Yes, I wrote once this hotel exceeded my expectations; however, once again they've managed the same. Now I'm recognized and greeted by name...by security guards, front staff, and cafe staff. Everyone is helpful and nice. The housekeeping and room service are extremely professional and respectful.
As for me, I always keep my "do not disturb on" as I work much from the room...so the housekeeping always offers off-hours to clean may room and ensure all is nice and spiffy! That's is very much appreciated!
Yes, for a business hotel it's top rated for sure...but I'd say for any visit to Vadodara this is the destination that one should pick! - centrally located, good food and shops along the street and anything you'd need within a hand's grasp.
Bravo to the staff of the Royal Orchid for a wonderful experience.....
