It is a Royal Heritage summer palace of erstwhile Mysore Maharajas.We visited the property on 21st evening and had high tea.
Excellent property and worth staying a night or two,if money is not a constraint and one will find it an unique experience rather than staying in 5* hotels in the midst noisy and polluted cities.
The palace dining hall is furnished with antique furniture and is well maintained.
The Palace is sourrounded by thick forests and we could see wild bisons freely moving in the garden,when we were in the hotel.
The staff were very receptive.

We got to stay in this hotel by chance. As one of the online portals had messed up our booking they put us up in this hotel for free. And it was a lovely experience. The hotel is a royal palace and they have maintained it as such. The decor is lovely (although it looks gaudy in pictures) and really gives you a feeling of royalty. The hotel is a bit lonely at night and they need to light up the driveway. But it's also very peaceful and quiet
The rooms are comfortable and very spacious. The heaters were not yet installed so it was bitterly cold for us. The bathrooms are neatly maintained and we were lucky enough to get the apartment with the jacuzzi.
The biggest problem with the hotel is that the food quality is underwhelming and overpriced. And for some meals they offer only the buffet and no a la carte. I would suggest that you finish your meals outside.
Overall I'm not sure if cost of the hotel balances what it offers. Apart from old school luxury, it has little to offer.
Hope my review is helpful. Have a wonderful holiday !
Old palace charm

This was a summer palace of the Mysore royal family. The wedding cake style red and white facade is likely well known to most Indians from it having served as a backdrop to quite a few Bollywood scenes/songs.
Very atmospheric place. Pretty gardens. The inside is full of old world collectibles and furniture. Large banquet hall where you can dine. We had some coffee, refreshments. Nice, friendly staff.
A local movie was being filmed outside, but we still managed to walk around a bit in the gardens.
Well worth a visit. Not sure of the stay and condition of rooms.
