Bharatpur Forest Lodge is now run by RTDC and situated in an absolutely serene environment. I booked it online for 4 days during August '19. The hotel is about 1.5km inside the park from the entry gate. The first floor room, bathroom and linen were clean. Available furniture were alright. Lightng was ok. The attached balcony was also excellent to watch sunset and birds. It was nice to wake up in the morning listening to chirping of the birds. There is a moderately maintained lawn with swings where children can enjoy. You may find there many birds in the morning. The staff were courteous, helpful and ready to share info.
However, the piped water was hot almost through out the day during August. The bar was defunct. Only Doordarshan was available on the TV. Personally I did not feel very bad about all these shortcomings, as my basic intention was birding. The biggest problem I faced was booking park visit ticket everyday from the ticket counter near the entry gate 1.5km from the hotel. You have to manage someone who will get the tickets for you.More
