The rooms were very comfortable. the hotel has an old world feel. We used the swimming pool facilities which were clean and the pool was deliciously refreshing. There was a wonderful breakfast buffet that changed every morning with fresh fruit , pastry, yogurt and tradition Indian cuisine. In addition the Masala omelette and the masala dosa made fresh were also delicious. The hotel staff was very attentive and friendly.

Lovely tranquil hotel in a great location for exploring Mysore. We arrived quite late after a long journey and our first impressions were of a calm oasis in the middle of the city. We were welcomed into the outdoor dining area and had cold drinks, which was lovely. Our room was large and very comfortable with a balcony overlooking the gardens which was nice for a late drink after dinner. The colonial style building was great and the restaurant/dining area outside was beautiful and a real treat after the English weather we had escaped! All the staff were friendly and helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. The food in the Tiger Trail restaurant and for breakfast was really nice, with an excellent choice. We stayed three nights and would happily go back again. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay memorable.

My stay at the hotel exceeded expectations with impeccable service with good food and comfortable rooms, coupled with the friendly staff, made it a memorable and delightful experience. While some rooms may not have undergone renovations, their cleanliness highlights the hotel's commitment to maintenance, a thoughtful update could further enhance the overall experience.

Jenny Wight wrote a review Jan 2024
Kingston upon Thames, United Kingdom6 contributions3 helpful votes
This quality of this hotel is not at all commensurate with the quality of the many hotels of a similar price in which we have stayed in India and it is difficult to see how it justifies the price. It offers a mixture traditional rooms and modern rooms. The traditional rooms are of a poor standard and require updating, particularly the bathrooms. The newer ‘deluxe’ rooms are of basic quality, quite small. Ours had a damp odour and there was evidence of plumbing and structural problems next to the outside of our door (see photos). The service in the restaurant is appalling. With the exception of one waitress (Bindiya) our requests and those of the other guests had to be followed up several times. Despite this when the bill is presented for signature the waiters stood expectantly waiting for a tip. The outside area lacks charm (see photo) however it is preferable to the dark canteen like dining room where tables are laid from breakfast. Many guests take food outside, occupying tables that were not laid up, finding their own cutlery to carry along with their food. In contrast, the female receptionist was extremely helpful and charming. The only redeeming factor of this hotel.

Dear Jenny Wight, We recognize your concerns regarding your experience and take them seriously as they point to areas we need to improve. Acknowledging the issues you've encountered with the traditional rooms, we agree that some aspects require refurbishment, and we are currently reviewing plans to modernize these facilities, including bathroom updates. We also hear your feedback on the deluxe rooms and are looking into the dampness and plumbing issues you noted, as maintaining a comfortable environment for our guests is paramount. Your dining experience fell short of our goal to provide excellent service, and we are addressing the inconsistency and responsiveness of our restaurant staff. Bindiya's service shines as a benchmark for what we aim to provide to all our guests, and we're striving to ensure that all team members meet these standards. Regarding the outdoor area and dining room ambiance, we are considering ways to enhance the charm and comfort of these spaces based on your feedback. We are grateful to hear about the positive encounter with our receptionist, reinforcing our commitment to fostering a hospitable and helpful atmosphere throughout our hotel. Our guests' constructive feedback is indispensable for our growth and your input has been shared with the relevant departments for immediate attention and action. We hope to have another opportunity to demonstrate the quality and service standards you rightfully expect. Rishi Ravindra General Manager
