We actually visited the place in Feb 2016. We had booked for five nights stay.
We got a beautiful room in the first floor with an extended balcony or jharokha as the locals call it & hangs over the lake.
There are numerous restaurants around the hotel itself to explore and eat. The hotel houses what is probably the best restaurant in Udaipur (night time roof top restaurant) and it is called Upre.
However, as far as places around the hotel to eat -the prices, ambience and the quality vary from place to place. They are also on the expensive side. All the restaurants claim to be lake facing. We highly recommend Haribagh restaurant just a stone's throw from the hotel for parity in taste of food and price.
Notable thing about the hotel is that the complimentary buffet breakfast is excellent. Although the options are limited and some of the menu is repeated daily ; it makes for an ideal start to the day. Not to mention the Veena being played by your side soothes the nerves.
All in all, we would give it a five star rating purely due to its location, ambience, maintenance and royalty on display. It is a shining light amongst the string of star hotels in the area. Highly recommend for both Indians as well as foreigners visiting India. This is the place to stay in Udaipur.
