The Palace is a great property surrounded by beautiful pines and green environs. The weather is invariably enjoyable. Though the city does not have much to offer, but an overnight stay in the Palace is a unique experience.
However, the cottages/huts on the same property are a different story altogether. 'STAY AWAY FROM THE COTTAGES' at any cost. They are located at a distance from the main Palace and have practicaly no service. Moreover thay are dirty, damp, stinky and the bedding is awful.
Good discounts in the Off-Peak season
