Stayed here during Diwali 2011 and not 2012. I was driving from Baroda, picked up my wife from Ahd airport and by the time we reached the palace it was almost 2 am. But the guards and maybe the caretaker were waiting for us and graciously showed us our room and we slept for the night. The morning view from outside the room, overlooking the lake was marvellous. The birds, the vintage car collection, the food and above all exploring the palace interiors, ensured that we wouldn't step outside the property during our stay. Though would definitely recommend taking a short trip down to the purani haveli. And if the weather is good, maybe cycle around and explore the nearby villages.
So what ticked me off and made me give this an average rating. Definitely checking out was not a smooth affair. When we paid our bill, our packed bags were in the rooms. Just before driving back, we decided to see the car collection. While coming back, much to our horror, we discovered that the manager had got our bags placed on the dirt road next to our car. Definitely not. A ver welcome sendoff. And to top it, he was none too apologetic. Somehow there was that lingering feeling that our presence was merely secondary. Maybe after almost 2 years, the memory isn't too fresh, but the manager's attitude is still annoying.
