This is an old and charming estate with a huge garden area, restaurant and pool.
Really nice is the view from riverside balconies.
We got the impression that the hotel management is eager to repair/paint the signs of the times.
Due to off season we were almost alone at breakfast. Breakfast and dinner quality was average. The staff was friendly and eager to serve the guests but finally they were a bit puzzled.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled as a couple

Dear Guest,
Greetings from Hotel Bundelkhand Riverside, Orchha.
We sincerely thank you for your kind review. The estate is the old Hunting lodge of the Maharaja of Orchha.
It was a pleasure to have you with us. Our staff is all local as the management would like to provide maximum employment to the locals. Perhaps, the boy serving you was a trainee. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Thank you once again for choosing to stay with us.
Best wishes,
General Manager

This hotel is very nice with a beautiful garden. Very well located near Orcha and just close to the river. The only comment is the room should be more clean there was a lot of dust on the furniture. The restaurant is amazing.

We took a bus from Jhansi Bus stand to Orchha (13kms).
On the way, there is a big entrance gate built on the left side which directs you towards the Hotel. The distance from main road and the hotel is about half a km or so, not easy to walk down when the Sun above is shining with all its might. You can call up the hotel, they will get you cab/auto service(you pay them directly) and help you out with your itinerary too.

As soon as you enter the estate you feel royalty emanating from every corner. It has been meticulously designed and the wood work is as beautiful as it gets.
We had booked a cottage online and were pleasantly surprised when it got upgraded to a deluxe room. Both the Cottage and Deluxe rooms are spacious and clean.

The cottages are located quite far off from the reception/restaurant area. No Intercom or Television is provided in the cottages. Although the Cottages are built around the Betwa river so in that sense the location is beautiful. Thus, I would say it's a trade off between convenience and natural beauty.
The restaurant again is beautifully designed and gives out a feel of fine dining at reasonable prices. The food tastes good (though I wouldn't say delicious, especially the tea needs improvement) and quantity served is appreciable.

It has huge lawns, a recreation room, books at the reception, swimming pool etc. Over all we loved our stay at the peaceful place, but felt that the travel to and fro the main town gets a little expensive due to its inaccessible location.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade

Dear Guest,
Greetings from Bundelkhand Riverside, Orchha!
Thank you so much for the review of your stay at The Bundelkhand Riverside. Your feedback is valuable to us. I greatly appreciate your time in reviewing us.
We are so happy that you liked the food we have made some changes to our menu and adding more variety for our guests.
As for the distance from the town we take in all 5 minutes by Tuk Tuk( auto rickshaw) and about 12-15 Min walking from the gate. TukTuk are arranged often for the guests and are the easiest mode of transport to Orchha at a reasonable cost. After reviews from guests we are in the process of installing intercoms in the cottages and thank you for the suggestion.

Looking forward to welcoming you back very soon.

Best Regards,

General Manager

Very relaxing time at the hotel; an oasis of clam after the hustle and bustle of our trip.( train got delayed due to the fog!)The resort had a relaxing vibe, our room was clean and outside the restaurant was a great place to have an evening drink to the sound of the singers who sing between 7:30-9 pm everyday. There is a fantastic view of the sunset from the terrace with the river and heritage structures. The swimming pool was not heated so do we didnt venture in but it looked lovely with an old 200 year structure beside it. I liked my stay there and recommend it.
