“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel really does exist”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

On the plus side, the hotel was a short drive away from the Keoladeo National Park, a fantastic place for birdwatching. The rooms were clean, and the food adequate.

However, the hotel seemed to have the most disorganised staff of any hotel we've ever stayed in. To give a few examples: even though we arrived quite late in the day, the room wasn't ready; the front desk lost our room key, and spent about ten minutes trying to track it down, eventually finding it under a pile of paper on the front desk; no food was ready at breakfast even though we arrived half an hour after the scheduled opening time; the maintenance staff took away a broken light fitting in the room to repair, and said he'd come back the following day, but no sign of him, and when we reminded him, he just looked blank; worst of all, when we tried to pay by Visa card at checkout time (our booking said this payment option was available) the front desk was very reluctant to allow us to do this, requesting that we went into the nearby town 5km away to visit an ATM: in the end, he gave in, but had to phone the manager to be talked through how to operate the card machine.

Other minor gripes were a) the state of the grounds (the hotel's drainage seemed to be blocked and a large proportion of the grounds were covered in smelly grey water; there was quite a lot of litter in the grounds too) and b) the exterior of the hotel is quite shabby-looking, and could do with being repainted.

The hotel Surja, just across the road, which we visited for lunch and dinner, seemed much nicer, and I'd suggest this as an alternative for anyone considering the Kadamb Kunj.

We had heard about Kadamb Kunj from some acquaintances and went there for a short 2 day break with our family.

We had a great time there...good rooms facing the fields n swimming pools, great evening entertainment planned everyday, good food and excellent staff.

3 thumbs up to Kadamb Kunj!!!

We definitely plan to go there again.

Room Tip: Get a super deluxe room...the view is great and so are the rooms

Clean rooms good stay , pls improve food quality of the buffet , very helpful and courteous staff. Evening folk entertainment was good. Quite close to the bird sanctuary . Rooms were quite large , one thing was that hot water was a little scarce and it was biting cold !!!

We decided to go to a place not too overtly commercial and not too far away from Delhi and this place came recommended from a friend, so a bunch of us decided to give this a go and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food,the extra helpful staff and very relaxed atmosphere at this hotel.The quality of the rooms is at par with any hotel worth its salt and every penny was well spent, we totally loved the hospitality extended to us. Thank you Kadamb Kunj, we shall be back very soon.

Room Tip: Corner suites are an absolute go for privacy and crazy fun till the wee hours of the morning

I stayed here for one night as I traveled from Jaipur to Agra. It was comfortable enough for a night, although the hotel has definitely seen better days. With the door closed and locked, I could still see how the weather looked outside through the cracks in the door jamb. I would call this place more of a motel than a hotel, and definitely not even close to a resort. The food in the restaurant was pretty good though!
