I stayed for only one night at this heritage hotel on my way from Rajkot to Gir National Park. It turned out to be a perfect choice: upon request the hotel staff arranged for my pick-up from Rajkot airport as well as my transport to Gir the next day. The hotel is conveniently located about an hour from the airport...

Enjoyed the attentive yet casual welcome by staff who were amongst some of the friendliest we came across in the whole of our time in Gujurat. Shown to my room I must admit to feeling a little overwhelmed by the sheer size of it, given I was on my own, which included an enormous bedroom/ lounge area, an adjoining dressing...

We just spent a few hours on the property. A nice and laid back experience. The room in the ground floor overlooking the rail car and orchards has a pleasant ambience of Art Deco furniture. Breakfast was a decent spread of aloo parathas, poha and toast. It's ideal for a base to travel in saurashtra.

Nice place and good food, a welcome respite after coming from Kutch or Bhuj. Staff are cool dudes and helpful. Only complaint would be the mosquito fumigation at night so if you have a hearing problem let them know or flee as soon as you see the smoke. Ponds need fish in them so that the mosquito larvae will be...

We stayed at Orchard Palace for 3 nights in January 2016 and recommend it highly. We had a huge room (I believe it was Room 3) with a comfortable bed, good shower, new television and plenty of room to store everything. The room had a slightly art deco feel. Food is delicious! Our waiter, Ravi, took excellent care of us...
