It’s not as close to Bikaner as you think but its on the edge of a lake and for that itself one must visit. It’s the old place of the Royals of Bikaner and its beautiful breakfast was good and staff helpful but the best part was having lunch by the lakeside- only drawback as in all Rajasthan if you don’t tell them in advance the food has far too many chilies.
This old Palace (now transformed into a Period/Heritage Hotel) is a setting out of fairy tales. It can get so quiet after dinner you can actually talk to your soul. A huge lake on the Western side touching the Main Building is gorgeous. There are other attendant buildings such as Stables etc nearby to complete the setting of a Palace. A must visit for anyone who just wants to speak with himself. Good for the Honeymooners as well.
Its a wonderful heritage property beside a lake. One can go here just to relax. There is a bird sanctuary nearby and the resort arranges for safaris and a desert safari too. The food here is quite amazing as well. Highly recommend it for couples or families looking for quite time away.
Very nice place, excellent views and location. Very quite place and beautiful rooms. Restaurant too offers very nice and delicious cuisine. Very picturesque specially at the time of sunrise and sunset. Loved this place and wish to come back very soon.
I have visited many palaces in Rajasthan but experience with gajner was not good ...I booked the hotel from their online site and it was showing with breakfast and at the time of check in , they had refused that it was not included ...and it would be chargeable basis and you wont have any choice , if you are in jungle...If I talk about staff , they were completely smileless , rude to guest and not having much etiquettes that how to welcome the guest whom are coming to stay there...didn't asked water at the time of check in and at the time of booking it was showing welcome drink, garland etc but they were not concern how to treat the guests....Food prices extraorbitants ...if you want to do lunch and dinner in restaurant , they have fixed menu ( buffet) ...but would say food was tasty but overpriced ...for room service.. I would say ..wait ..wait ...wait and which will not over...Best thing is palace itself but not for stay because of unorganized manner ..better to do full day visit along with jungle jeep safari which is really good ....stay away from boating because charges are high and time is less ...No use of it ....
Visited this hotel for two nights on a 26 day tour of North India. On the surface this hotel looks very nice, it has a lovely setting by the lake and the restaurant served decent food. Sadly though we thought the place was very run down. Our room was very cold and damp with mould around the bath, dirty bed linen and damp towels. I'm very tall and couldn't get in the short bed. There was a heater, that we had to keep on all night to keep warm. This is sadly a place of faded glory with very uneven paths and lots of bird muck on the outside tables etc. This hotel certainly needs some TLC! I wouldn't go back here again.
This was a Maharaja's hunting lodge (a real big one - 45 rooms) that is now converted into a luxury hotel and is around 30 plus KM from the city and takes 45 min to an hour. Apparently overall it covers over 6,000 acres as it includes the palace, lake and adjoining sanctuary. They charge INR 250/- per head that includes a mini tour of the property and a complementary tea/coffee/soft drink. It is in a very picturesque location and has great views. There are lots of birds around the property - take a good binoculars if you want to do some good bird watching. We spent around 2.5 hours there including lunch time. Things to do 1. Take a look around the property - As mentioned, it is Rs 250/- per head for entry. 2. Have a relaxed lunch at the restaurant. It was the ballroom of the property during the colonial era and is tastefully redone and has all the paraphernalia for a multi course meal. The prices are very reasonable considering the ambience. You could also eat on the deck area overlooking the lake. 3. Take a boat ride. It costs Rs 330/- per head (30 minutes). It is extremely windy and chill in this season and hence highly recommended to be be sufficiently covered with warm clothing. 4. There is a safari in a jeep for Rs 3,500 (1 hour). I would love to stay here for a couple of days on my next visit.
The property is huge and location is beautiful. The courtyard section whr the main structure stands is very well maintained. The room where we were staying was lil away from that place. Its Called the Gulab Niwas. TV was not working in our room #123, brackish water was cmg out from the sink tap. Again thr was no power in our room for a few hrs. Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel was totally booked out. The hotel dint provide us the wi fi password n kept saying it's not working. Food in the restaurant was good. Variety was decent. The hospitality was also upto the mark. Hence we cud overlook those above mentioned things. We were 4 couples staying there. Celebrated our wedding anniversary thr also had other guests joining us too and the management co operation was nice n pleasant.
We recently stayed at Gajner Palace for 1 night. It is a very grand property with amazing gardens and bird life. The room we stayed in was huge, very comfortable and quite. Although the staff are helpful they seem to be arrogant with little genuine friendliness. Restaurant food was basic, breakfast below par. Needs some injection of change.
We had a short visit to the Gajner Palace Hotel and spent some time having refreshments and tea. The place is maintained beautifully and the service provided is very good. For a nominal charge you can visit the palace and get to know about its rich history. My young child wanted to see a peacock and Mr Rajendra Singh went out of his way to make this possible. A memorable few hours in this splendid oasis.
