The place is beautiful, perfectly done interiors and decorations giving you a heritage feel to the core, we were a group of 9 people and had a very comfortable stay.
The only negative is the pricing of the essentials, e.g a Mutton dish was for 400 while a single tandoori Roti was for 80, every single facility had a price tag to it, at one point they even refused to boil Milk for my toddler and insisted that we purchase 1 glass milk from their Kitchen even for the baby 1 glass milk was priced at Rs 120 excluding taxes!
Their staff misguided us for the sanctuary visit telling us that we should visit early morning as by 9:30 -10 all the birds take flight, later we came to know they do that to avoid giving free Breakfast included in the tarrif to the guests as the Breakfast ends at 9:30. We contacted their owner Abhayveer Singh Ji and he did resolve this issue for us and asked his team to provide late breakfast to us after our sanctuary visit. apart from the owner i think most of the staff was having an attitude/inclination to squeeze money for any & everything possible e.g. serving food on the roof along with the Bonfire which when corrected would make this place a perfect heritage hotel
