Reviewed January 24, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2012 whilst visiting Hampi from Goa. The grounds are very nice but our room was very average for £76 per night! We expected a bit of luxury but the room, apart from a nice decorative ceiling was only average. We had twin beds and I had to climb over the base as there was no room around one bed! Compared to an English Travel Lodge or Premier Inn it was below par and twice the price. No coffee making facilities, no hair dryer, the mini bar only had water. The shower was super but soaked the entire bathroom. With the drain on the opposite side the whole room flooded so you ended up paddling in water if you needed the loo after showering!
We were not told when booking that the hotel was vegatarian (almost vegan!) so most dishes were paneer based and not to our liking so the menu was very limited. There is nothing on their site to say it is!
The hotel also does not serve alcahol! We knew it was a dry state but usualy you can get a drink in hotels. Luckily we bought brandy & gin with us but the hotel did not even have coke (of any type) or tonic. In the end they sent someone to buy some but only came back with coke.
There are better hotels in Hospet as friends have stayed there. Vijayshree say they are 2 miles from Hampi which is true but it is 7 miles from the ruins.
They advertise a free pick up to and from Hospet station but we could not contact them on our arrival so had to get Tut tuts going and was charged 400 rupees by the hotel car on the way back.
I would not reccomend staying there as it is more geared up to Indian business conferances etc. Not up to european standards!

Stayed at a Heritage Villa at Vijayshree Heritage Village for 3 night. Found the location to be very convenient for seeing the Hampi ruins. As the days can get very hot, it is best to leave by 8AM, come back for lunch and bit of rest and then go again from 4 to 7PM to the ruins. There are not many decent places to eat at Hampi so this arrangement worked out very well. We probably would have been stuck at Hampi with long wait times at restaurants if we were staying at a hotel in Hospet.

The villas are well appointed and spacious. The staff very well meaning and genuine. The food is vegetarian and passes muster - but you may need a change of scene if you are planning to stay for 3 nights as we did. Unfortunately, we did not find any alternative restaurant that is worth recommending.

There is also a daily cultural show which is interesting for kids. They also have a Rajasthani Thali dinner which is worth trying at least once.

On the last day, we had to leave early as we were driving back to Bangalore and Mr. Kalu Singh the F&B Manager personally made sure that breakfast was ready at 6.30 and our sandwiches were packed.

In general a very good and peaceful place to stay at when visiting Hampi.

Excellent place. Neat rooms, very well maintained lawns and good vegetarian food. Enjoyed the evening in the heritage village with the various shows, snacks, dance etc.
Location is kind of midway between Hospet and Hampi. Going by your own vehicle would be preferable from an accessibility perspective.

Scope for improvement in terms of service - Booking possible through travel portals as well as direct website. Got the feeling that the type of service you get could differ based on how you book. TravelGuru seems to be providing the minimum rates for booking with the same inclusions - but you dont get the traditional welcome, not even the welcome drink - maybe you arent welcome in the same way.
Payment through credit card was not possible on the day of my checkout because of some technical issues. Any payment for either the stay / restaurant / village happens through the same gateway, so cash was the only mode of payment. I had already done my room payments online, so just had to pay for the additional charges. But if a complete payment had to be done, it would have been a lot of hassles with the nearest ATM available only in Hospet.

Excellent place to have some serene holiday. The atmosphere was very peaceful especially in the morning with all the birds chirping. Even though its serves only vegetarian food, it felt quite good for a change.The historical monuments of the Vijaynagar empire is a "must see" for all.

Room Tip: I was in a kutia room and was quite comfortable.

My stay was in a royal haveli room which was truly royal in style and ultimate comfort with all modern amenities including jacuzzi bath tub in the room.Here is a place where you can witness eco conservation and energy conservation measures and unmatched luxury within the resort.The greenery maintained in the resort is unbelievable and gives a soothing effect to the eyes.Though I visited on 27-11-11 and 28-11-11,the climate was cool and it was like a monsoon season with one or two showers.With rich greenery around the resort, even summers wiill be enjoyable here.It has a fabulous swimmimg pool,a spa and modern gym hall,games and entertainment room,a multicuisine restaurant and 24hours coffee shop close to my room.Even royal weddings are organised in a grand manner here.The warm welcome given at the time of check in was unmatched and well remembered.It is a true theme heritage resort.
The resort conducts evening village programs from 5 pm to 10 pm which includes camel ride,horse ride,puppet show, magic show ,rajastani dance,fire show by artist and mahendi for ladies.Even non resort guests also can attend these programs along with a 32 dish rajasthani dinner for just Rs 300/- per person.For resident guests the rajasthani dinner is really enjoyable.
My kudos to the entire team of vijayshree staff for doing selfless service of maintaining such a high standards in such a heritage place (close to Hampi),led by Mr.Bhagawan Singh Bhati,property manager & unit financial director and also to reception team including Mr.Khushvendra singh,Front office manager.

I will definetely visit this resort shortly again with my family since this time I stayed with my mother on one day and one more day with my friend.

From the moment we entered the resort, we felt like royals. The hospitality of the staff was over the top. Room was spotless. The Rajasthani dinner was delicious and a fun experience. Location is good; half way between Hospet and Hampi Bazaar. We visited the Rajasthani Theme Village every evening. The kids enjoyed the horse, bullock cart and camel rides, magic show, swimming pool, soft lawn where they could run around and the golf buggies that take you around the resort.
