We stayed at several different hotels in Bangalore and Mysore. This was the hands down, best hotel of any of them. Matter of fact it isn't even fair to compare the others to it as it was that much better. The room was wonderful and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel has the historic charm befitting a former royal family facility. The hotel restaurant had excellent food and the morning breakfast buffet was full of Indian and Western breakfast items. The staff was very attentive, very competent and very amicable. When we come back to Mysore or any of India we will look for Royal Orchid hotels as this one was well worth the extra money over the other hotels we stayed at. Great value for the money and the best hotel we stayed at. We are still talking about this hotel and how we really didn't even want to leave the hotel since it was so nice and had a pool and comfortable courtyard!
The hotel was beautiful. The room and the decor were excellent . I felt like royalty. The quality of the food and service were very good. The computer room was always kept locked and so had to get someone to open it when I wanted to check my emails. That was inconvenient. Also the taxi arranged by the reception is very expensive. A very short ride to the bus station - maybe a mile or so- costed us Rs.500/-. This is a total rip off. If we had walked to the gate and hailed a taxi it would not have costed us more than Rs. 100/- . Maybe even less than that. I am not sure why this difference. The hotel should not get a taxi service that charges so much. Also it reflects very poorly on us with foreign tourists.
