Bundelkhand Riverside
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Orchha
Reviewed February 9, 2009

We were on a tour of Madhya Pradesh and I chose this place following previous trip advisor comments and it totally lived up to expectations. We stayed 2 nights.
The welcome was excellent - my wife had been bitten by a dog elsewhere and they organised the vaccine and the doctor immediately.
The room was superb with a fantasic view out the back to the river - where we sat each night to watch the sun going down - after which they built a bonfire for us to sit around before a great meal in their restaurant.
It's a beautiful place and well maintained - Orchha is about 1.5kms down the road - but this is a highly recommended peaceful haven.
Orchha too is a nice place to spend a couple of days.
Stongly recommend it.

We stayed here for one night, but wished we could have extended our stay. The location by the river is enchanting, the rooms are large and well furnished, the beds are comfy, and the staff is very attentive. The restaurant was more expensive than most and my bathroom was not perfectly clean, but apart from that, I would definitely stay at Bundelkhand again. The architecture of the place is amazing and Orchha is a captivating town.

We had a large room with a balcony overlooking the river. It was a great view. The plumbing worked and so did the heater (it can get cold in India in the winter). The room even included a plug-in pot to heat boiling water so we made tea and enjoyed the view. There was also a nice view from the roof, but the over zealous staff kept hovering for tips. The restaurant was expensive - they cater to groups so the buffet is the only option. The breakfast buffet was okay but it included left over potatoes from the day before. The location is pretty far from town so our only choice was to eat at the hotel restaurant.

I too visited the Bundelkhand Riverside with an organised tour of Nepal and India and during a 3 week trip this is by far the best hotel - the entire group of 12 agreed!

The hotel is beautiful, just beautiful - photos just won't do it justice! We timed our visit perfectly with Diwali and the entire hotel staff were there inviting us all to join in with the Diwali blessings and celebrations - nothing was too much trouble. A couple in our group decided they wanted to get married the next day and the hotel staff didn't seem at all fazed and the ceremony was perfect (for us as well as the newly weds!)

The rooms are massive as is the bathroom (especially having just got off an overnight train). Everywhere was really clean and the buffect food for both breakfast and dinner varied and lovely, but there was a noticeable difference in the price of the set buffet menu compared to other restaurants in other parts of India but the place was beautiful so no one minded!

The short walk (or a hairy rick shaw ride) into the town is ok, but the town is well worth it. Initally it doesn't seem that big but there are lots of lovely little shops selling great souviners, fast internet, and money changing facilities. The entire town heard about the wedding in hours!!

There are quite a few historic palaces to view within easy reach of the hotel, well worth arranging a local guide to give you a better feel of the area.

Definitely an area, and a hotel that i want to revisit!

I stayed at this hotel via an organised trip and just loved it! The hotel is an old maharajas palace that has been converted, but all the old architecture is still there in immaculate condition which is a rarity in India. The hotel has a superb location next to the river that runs through Orchha, but is ten minutes walk out from the bustle of the town. The palace has large tranquil gardens with pristine lawns that are very well kept, tropical plants, cool airy bedrooms, personal service (they even brought drinks out to us on the rocks by the river at sunset), a lovely pool, a beautiful roof terrace with amazing views and great food. This hotel really is a find and we were amazed at how few people seemed to be staying here - it is obviously a well kept secret. I would say that the atmosphere here is magical and well worth the visit.

This resort is not advertised well and when you look for places to stay in Orchha you get a measly list. I would recommend this than all the other places to stay. It is beautiful, good service, and a great place to relax in.
The retreat is beautifully done in typical Chatri styles, the hospitality is personal and great views of both river and fort.
I would recommend the home made style of Indian food..just dont expect a full bar!
