This Hotel was very grand, the rooms are huge & the bathroom also. Hotel grounds are wonderful and well cared for. Swimming pool was a welcome treat as the outside temp was 38c +. Food was fantastic as were the staff. My wife & I would love to stay here again.

I stayed here in March 2005 on a trip sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation in the US. This was before the Taj organization had acquired it. The rooms were arranged along a covered walkway looking out on a green lawn. We ate many of our meals outside under the trees and stars. The buffets were delicious and they served... More

The grounds of this hotel are lovely and the staff are very accommodating. The room was very comfortable although the ac produced a moldy smell so I simply left it off and used the overhead fan. The restaurant was excellent and the veranda is a delightful place to sit and have a cup of tea.

This stylish hotel is the ideal palce to stay on your tiger safari break. A 1930s architectural gem full of old school charm. The rooms around the croquet lawn are huge and nicely appointed. This was our favourite hotel throughout our visit to India.
