A detour to Palitana wasn't in my original Gujarat plans, but I am soooo glad it was added. My only regret about Vijay Vilas; staying only one night. The owners are wonderful, very down to earth, and will share the history, as well as the numerous challenges of maintaining, their home. The staff members were polite and helpful. The house...

To spend some time in the Vijay Vilas Palace is an extraordinary experience indeed. Especially if one likes historical architectures. The rooms are very charming. We loved, staying there for 4 days. The rooms are spaces and equipped with antique furnitures. We had the chance to clime up the stair (3500 steps) to the 900 Jain-Tempels of Shatrunjaya from there....

We loved our two day stay here. The service was friendly and attentive. The newly refurbished cottage rooms are spacious, well appointed with large well-equipped bathrooms. The old house is delightful - slightly run down but very homely and packed with original old furniture. And there is a signed letter and portrait of Lord Mountbatten on one of the sideboards....

The rooms we stayed in were set around a square garden - all had a terrace to sit out in to enjoy the peace and quiet. Best shower I had in the whole trip through Gujarat. Service excellent and food lovely. Highly recommended. If you are walking up the 4000 steps at Palitana...go early when the air is fresh and...

So why 5 stars? It was like stepping back in time. Big time. I decided against the modern rooms in the outbuildings and opted for a top floor room in the main palace, where everything is antique and practically untouched. I slept in the maharajah's bedroom, which also had an adjoining sitting room, a terrace with a swing bed, a...

We left today this small B&B and it was a great stay! At first sight it did not seem to be a good one as for the run down front face but when we entered our room it was very nice and clean with all the comforts! Probably one of the cleanest properties we have encountered so far (1 monti...

Lying on the swing outside my room you could hear only the sounds of the birds singing. What glorious peace and quiet. I had a wonderful time walking round the property while the other guests toiled the 3,600 steps to the temple. The room was princely, the water hot and the food very good.. I really fab spot to hang...
