Another 4 days of good memories. A very good venue, close to the park entrances. We had a stilted lodge which was lovely; lunch was plentiful and Western style, whilst the evening meal was Indian. Staff couldn't do enough for us - our every whim was catered for. A bonus was having nature talks/films before our evening meal which was...

Kings Lodge is a fantastic place to forget about the rest of the world and enjoy this area. We stayed in stilt room for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of the room, including the nice touch of a hot water bottle in your bed in the evening, and outdoor area. Rooms are spacious, great hot water in the...

I stayed here for three nights with my wife and parents. Our stay was excellent right from start to finish. The staff is superb and very courteous. It was like royal treatment. I have summarized my reviews as follows: Stay - The rooms are well furnished and do not have TV (which is the best part). I personally love wooden...

Without a doubt, Kings Lodge was a stay that will be remembered for a long time. The service at the lodge was without fault. In fact if there was a fault it was the over attentiveness of the staff who were always friendly, personable and falling over each other to attend to guests needs, always willing to go above and...

All i can say is OUTSTANDING in every way 10 out of 10, as soon as you walk in the front door they make you feel as you are the only people staying with them which for my wife and myself was great. All the staff go out of they way to make you special.

We stayed 2 nights at the Lodge in a beautiful and comfortable room amongst the trees. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful. They have a no individual tipping policy, instead having a tip box which ensures all staff share in any well deserved tip given. This was such a refreshing change from the all pervasive tipping expectation...

This lodge is a really great place to stay, lovely rooms, good food and attentive staff. A slide show in the evenings for about 30mins and very informative, several subjects - birds, wild animals etc. We had two safaris in a jeep from here and on second one saw three young tigers in the wild, all around 20 months old....

My wife and I have done several safaris in Africa and wanted to give India a try. This was the forth and last lodge on our trip and we certainly saved the best for last. From the moment you arrived you are treated like Royalty. Doors are opened for you and everybody smiles with genuine warmth. We stayed in a...

We spent three nights here, while taking safaris in Bandhavgarth National Park. Our room was lovely and the hotel staff were very service orientated - they couldn't have done more for us. Food very good. The naturalist was extremely good and tried really hard to get us a tiger sighting, but none was forthcoming. However we saw many species of...
