We stayed here for a night. The palace is very well maintained. It took almost 2 hours for us to roam around the palace hotel and explore.

Staff is friendly and they prepared very early morning breakfast for us at 5am since we were heading to Palithana. nin...

This could have been such a great place… but some effort is required. We stayed there for 2 nights as we visited Palitana. Note : employees whether at reception or at restaurant barely speak English, forget any other language such as French. First sad experience : the so-called deluxe room (compare to room shown on their webiste) We first were...

Whenever you go to Gujarat and visit the city Bhavnagar then it is worth every rupee to stay a few nights in the Nilambag Palace hotel. The hotel is, as you probably already guessed the former residence of the local rulers. After you entered the lobby to check you walk to a room where you're facing a few generations of...

This is a beautiful hotel in a palace, nicely furnished with old furniture and centrally located. The rooms were clean. The inside restaurant is in a beautiful dinning hall with beautiful furniture. It was sad that the staff had little time to change the tablecloths or wipe the sticky salt and pepper dispensers. The outside eating area is in a...

When I called on a Saturday to change the reservation date I got the office instead of reception. The office was closed that day. Front desk number is not found easily. When I requested one tea in room 101 and one in 102, two teas were sent to 101 and none to 102 (as I found out later). Due to...

The hotel was built in 1859 as a residence for the ruler of Bhavnagar. Here, so far, everything breathes history. The building is preserved in excellent condition. Clean, comfortable rooms. Great service. Wonderful, friendly staff. Great food. In such places, I want to come back!
