I stayed here on a 2 day excursion to Mysore. Overall, the property itself was as nice as the pictures you see on their internet site. Grounds are meticulously maintained, and it is clear they take pride in the appearance of the resort.
Check-in was fast and courteous. They wanted to make sure I was comfortable. After staying there my first night, I saw some glaring shortcomings.
First, the hotel is in the middle of mosquito central. It is CRITICAL that you have a mosquito oil lamp in your room, otherwise you'll be eaten alive. I did not have one in my room, and was eaten. The hotel staff was suprised to see my room was not stocked with on. Too late for me!
Second, when things were wrong with the room, they settled for short term fixes rather than fixing the room. The lock on my door was very sticky and the door hard to open. Rather than fix the lock, they kept sending up someone to bang on the door for 5 minutes. After several iterations of this, I asked for a new room, and they politely moved me.
The restaurant serves Thai, Chinese, India, and some western food. Quality is decent, prices seemed somewhat high. I had trouble getting attentive service sometimes, but this could be more a culture thing than a shortcoming with the hotel.
Overall, the Windflower is a nice and beautiful hotel. I ran into some irritating issues. Had this been positioned as an average hotel in mysore, I'd probably offer a higher rating, but since they position themselves as one of the top hotels, they are held to a higher standard, and modestly missed the mark on my visit.
