“derelict”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Owned by the Indian Government who obviously don't care about it as it is patently going to rack and ruin. The Indian guide must be related to someone high up because her English is very poor and she gabbles on at a rate of knots as though she wants to get it over quickly. I think some world body needs to take charge of this building.

“Viceregal Lodge : Historical monument”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Viceregal Lodge is a world famous heritage building situated on the top of Chaura Maidan. There is a reflection of Scottish flavor of architecture from every nook & corner of the building. This is also known as Rashtarpati Bhawan.

“Glorious heritage”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

It speaks of grandeur , majesty and amazing architecture. A must see with its grand old trees and sprawling lawns . Its a huge stone building rising proudly on a hill top with a awe inspiring view of hazy hills and valleys.

“Stunning Scottish-style castle”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We were really surprised to see a Scottish-style Castle in India, and not less to learn about all the strategic decisions discussed within its walls by the Raj.
