“By the pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

The set up by the pool makes one feel relaxed.The food orders do take a bit long to reach ur table but taste wise its alright. The spicy prawns is a must try along with a mixed veg fried rice.The mocktails aren't great instead order for a Beer. The staff are good and welcoming. The water glasses smell so pls look into that.

While planning our trip to Karnataka we were shopping for rooms in Mysore. We sent e-mails to 7 or 8 hotels inquiring about location, types of rooms, buffet breakfast, rates ,discounts ,etc. Most of them replied, rarely with all the requested details.

Somewhat to my surprise I received a detailed, friendly letter from Mr. Ramesh K. the Sandesh G.M. I ‘ve reserved a lot of hotels but it’s very rare that the GM HIMSELF goes to the time and trouble to reply, especially answering detailed questions.

That initial e-mail was followed by an exchange of several subsequent e-mails –all written by Ramesh K. All efficient and friendly.

We reserved there and upon our arrival noted that the G.M.’s. “Hands –On” management was everywhere present. The staff were efficient and friendly. The Check –in (and later Check –out ) took minutes only.

The buffet breakfast was south Indian and tasty. Two cooks took orders for any style of eggs as well as varieties of South Indian Dosa pancakes. You could order the usual plain or “Masala Dosa” (stuffed with onions and potatoes) or an interesting new version, Italian influenced, using grated parmesan cheese. Delicious.
I like peace and quiet when I eat, so I asked the restaurant staff to turn off the TV and lower the music volume. It was done promptly and the next day I didn’t even have to ask – it was done as we arrived. Super – friendly.

The rooms are large, well designed, very quiet and have an easy –to –use electronic safe.

We’re all looking forward to returning to Sandesh The Prince anytime we’re in South India.

Hotel structure seems luxurios but rooms are pretty old. Same the bathrooms. Still everything clean. Wifi charged separately. Which is annoying but it seems a standard approach in India. Service is rather unfriendly. The best asset is definetively the swimming pool. Breakfast is average. If you can find a better one with a swimming pool, then you don't need to book here.

My family and I were travelling across south India for two weeks and Mysore was the first stop of our tour. We stayed at the Sandesh the Prince overnight, the hotel itself was very nice and modern. We had two adjoining rooms, which was useful. The rooms were standard, but clean and comfortable. We had an extra bed in one room, so was a bit of a squeeze but fine as we were only staying overnight and as we had access to both rooms we kept our luggage in the other room to give us some space. The rooms had a TV, mini fridge, and tea/coffee facilities; it also had a number of good power points which was very useful as we had many electrical devises!

The restaurant was nice, where we had breakfast (included in the price of the room) and also lunch and dinner. Breakfast offered a variety of choice, from continental to the traditional south India spread, so plenty to choice from. At lunch we chose from the al carte menu, which was a mixture of northern and southern Indian cuisines and for dinner we had the buffet, which was at a dearer price than other places for 500 rupees but the conveniences of eating at the hotel was great as we were on a tight schedule.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and ready to assist in any way. The service was quick and efficient.

The hotel was about a ten minute walk from Mysore Palace, where we took the tour of the palace during the day and then returned in the evening to see the light show, which was beautiful.

it has an wonderful lobby and big spacious parking to start with, the staff here are polite and always there to your needs, the reception area make you feel that u have reached mysore....
the rooms were spacious and with good sleep quality we feel like home rather then hotel feel.
the buffet breakfast and dinner have a good spread and delicious in taste, it has good swimming pool to relax and gym to workout.
seems that this hotel is popular with tour operators as you find lot of tourists from foreign stay here as groups.

I visited the hotel in 2013 as the same was the venue of one of our corporate event. overall, the hotel offers best in class amenities & services. Had spent 3 nights at the hotel & a good bed ensured a pleasant & peaceful sleep each night. The staff were most courteous & helpful. An excellent breakfast spread helped kickoff each day.Highly recommended.Rooms are really big and well maintained. I really liked the architecture and the way they managed the arrangements.
