“Nice place”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

We reached the hotel on a Friday morning. We got a king room. The room was really nice and spacious. The balcony of the room opened to the view of Brindavan Garden. Looked really good in the evening (with all the lights) and early morning.

Would have been good to have a walk on the KRS dam wall, but sadly prohibited due to some government prohibitory order on places of sensitive nature!! The beakfast, included as part of the B&B package, was really nice. Good variety available - Idli, Dosa, Bread, Omelette, Fruits, Juice, Cornflakes, etc. Really nice place. Could do with better food during lunch and dinner though.

Room Tip: Ask for King rooms on first floor. These face the Brindavan Gardens. Amazing view

We had an enjoyable stay at the Royal Orchid Brindavan Gardens. It is true that the hotel is a little faded in places, and, while we were there, the corridors were not kept clear of rubbish, but our room was very comfortable with a beautiful terrace overlooking the gardens.

The staff in the dining room were helpful and the food good.

This place has a good mix of old-world charm, and new-world comforts. It happened to be a Mysore royal family getaway, and is situated right in the Brindavan gardens. The rooms could do with a bit more upkeep. I understand that the place is 100 years old, but that is not an excuse for having dirty curtains, and old menus with pencil marks all over. But overall a nice & comfortable place. This is probably one of the few places you get such large & spacious rooms at a reasonable price. Swimming pool, gym & spa are non-existent (the pool is more like a large jacuzzi tub).

Royal Orchid Brindavan Gardens is an ideal place for couples wanting to spend sometime together away from all the hazzles of life.

I've always heard people saying 'water is where life is'. I am a strong believer of this statement and at Royal Orchid Brindavan where the focal point is water in all it's might, strength and beauty, you will soon find yourselves agreeing to my thoughts :)

Royal Orchid Brindavan Gardens is a heritage hotel located within the premises of KRS Dam and built next to the River Cauvery overlooking the majestic Brindavan Gardens. A much sought after location to shoot most romantic songs for Bollywood(Hindi movies) and Sandalwood (Kannada movies), ofcourse during earlier days when filiming in European locations was not possible. The garden however continues to retain its everlasting beauty.

I have stayed at ROBG 3 times (with 3 different objectives) and have enjoyed on every occasion.
My first visit was for a business conference. We had fantasic arrangements and found the place appropriate for those meetings where the focus is to bring-in radical change and alignment within any business / stakeholders concentrating on serious initiatives. The place was very inspiring to our group (of about 35 people) and we really achived the objectives we had set-out ourselves before the event.
Arrangements :
Conference facilities : Fantastic. Staff always at your service

Being impressed and inspired from my first visit, I visited the hotel again within a month's time with my wife. We lived the life of royals and will cherish those moments for years to come. I am sure we will have many more visits in future :)

Then it was a turn to be there with my family(wife and kids). Please see specific experience about his trip further below in this review.

Highlights :
1) Free access to Brindavan Gardens (I specifically liked the early morning and late evening stroll we could take through the gardens and the KRS dam with good security all around. This facility is available to only guests staying at the hotel and one of the primary factors that will pull me back again and again to this hotel). The Sunrise and Sunset are great pleasure to watch.
2) Excellent view of Brindavan Garden from the hotel (It's a delight to see when the lights come on during the evenings, pl. check with the hotel staff for exact hours)
3) Excellent accommodation (rooms)
4) Good Food (Sorry, can't comment on the Bar as I do not take Alcohol) but the location of the bar is execllent facing the gardens.
5) If you can takeout 3 hours on this trip, then the new Venugopalaswamy temple being built at Hosakannambadi village is a must visit site. This temple is being re-constructed near KRS dam as the original temple was submerged in the water. More details on this can be found here : http://mysore.ind.in/venugopalaswamy-temple
6) The hotel is also quite close (around 12 kms) to one of the most famous bird sanctuaries of south India (Ranganathittu Bird sanctuary)

The only time I faced some concerns was when I was there with my kids. Apart from the dam and garden(with a few broken swings) + a big Chess board laid out on the ground, there isn't much for kids to do in this hotel. So my kids became a bit restless.
Key message : I would avoid going back to this hotel if I need to take my kids along.

Best Time to visit : All year round but especially good during and immediately after monsoon season as the dam would then be full with water. Though the thought of sleeping next to a dam full to its brim runs shivers through the spine, the ultimate comfort provided within the rooms ensure you have a good sleep... ofcourse, that's optional :)

Hotel has got King and Queen rooms with excellent interiors. In evening you can enjoy musical fountains and a nice morning walk in brindavan gardens.
A small but nice gymnasium and very small golf course for kids to enjoy.
A very nice buffet Breakfast.
It was really a delightful and unforgettable stay for all of us.

Hotel is located inside the gardens with beautiful view of the fountains, flowers and the dam from the balcony. While more expensive than the next door Mayura Cauvery (also inside the gardens), the stay and service is luxurious.

Apart from the crowded and lively evening light show (7 - 8 pm weekdays and 7-9 pm weekends), you get to enjoy the garden in quietness of a morning walk.

Breakfast buffet was extensive - continental and Indian. Food (including dinner) was above average.

Staff - reception, restaurant and housekeeping were awesome - happy, helpful and responsive. Attended to requests immediately, courteous, and go out of the way to make you have a pleasant stay.

Room was spacious and luxurious. Choice of furniture and fixtures were of a 4* hotel quality. Bathroom while large and clean only get 3/5 - stained shower curtain, loose faucet, small bathtub and had no good ventilation (fan or otherwise since window faced the corridor and remained shut). The cable TV and phone lines had problems. The alternate room offered also had similar minor issues.

Not very handicapped friendly though - you have to climb stairs to get to the lobby and though the hotel is 3 floors there are no lifts.

There is a valet service for your car as the parking is about half km away from the building.

The High speed internet offered was also quite expensive (200 Rs per hour or 600 Rs per day).

This is a great place to go away to for a weekend. It is located inside the Brindavan Gardens in Mysore, and offers a view to the gardens from the sit-out if you choose one of the rooms facing the garden, which we did. The hotel is actually a renovated and upgraded heritage building. Great facade and all the interiors retain the look of a heritage building. At the same time luxury is not compromised.

Room and stay: Rooms are large, well maintained and have a heritage feel. We got a room with a 4-poster bed and netting, and it can make you feel spoiled. Room is well equipped - mini refrigerator, flat TV. Bathroom is neat, but some restrictions on remodelling/renovating prevent it being plush. Definitely adequate though.

Food: The restaurant serves buffets and a-la-carte. Food is above average; no complaints. Alcohol is also served.

Amenities and Ambiance: Very good facilities for recreation - mini golf/pool table. A walk in the gardens is always possible. There is also a spa in the hotel. Hotel is well lit in the evening and makes for a cozy experience. Ideal for a weekend getaway.
