We stayed in the guest suites in this former palace for royal guest accomodation. Our rooms had marble lobbies, huge bedrooms with sofas, an office, a dressing room, a vast bathroom, all except the lobby overlooking the lake. Dinner was served around the swimming pool and underneath the stars. So this is what official visits are like for celebrities and leading politicians. However, dinner service was slow and I said so in a comment card which only the men in our party were asked to complete. At breakfast the next morning the manager apologised and appeared to be genuinely concerned rather than going through the motions. Actually the women in our party would have been more critical of the standard of food served to them, if asked. For all of these criticisms, we still loved the experience which was far superior in style to our stay in the Lake Palace hotel several days later.
