I stayed here for a night on a business trip in December 2013. Living and travelling frequently in India, I am well familiar with Indian hotel standards and I know what can be expected for a certain price.
This hotel is totally overpriced and is certainly no longer a five star destination as it might have been 20 years ago. The main problem is that the entire infrastructure is out of shape and requires a renovation to maintain the standard that they claim to have. I suspect that the only reason, why they can maintain such exorbitant prices is the lack of alternatives in Jabalpur.
Because of the old structure of the building, the rooms are noisy, e.g. one can you hear the telephone ring and people talk in the adjacent room. When there is a function, you will hear the music in all the rooms of the main building, as if they were playing in front of your room's door. The rooms in the wing are a bit less noisy, larger and in better shape but they charge more for them.
Having said this, the staff is friendly and the management is trying to get the best out ot the old infrastructure. So despite old, everything was at least in working condition and the rooms were as clean as old rooms can be. The usual ammenities were provided and breakfast was okay but again, certainly not on five-star level.
