"Modern hotel with heritage palace looks "

Posted 17 Mar, 2016

When I was planning our tour to Jaisalmer, I was more than confused with respect to accommodation we need. I generally give most importance to the location of the hotel. However, I am also fascinated by heritage tag. But, accommodation in hawelis and hotels near the Palace and/or near the fort was being discouraged by a few travellers and organizations. The single most point which made me to go for Gorbandh Palace was the fact that guests of Palace on Wheels are taken to this Hotel on weekend for their dinner. Without knowing much, I reserved one suite for one day and one deluxe room for the other day. We were not at all disappointed. In fact, more we explored the property, more it came as far better than expected. The property is located outside the city but the city itself is small and therefore, the taxi charged us Rs. 150/- for the hotel. On arrival, we were greeted with a garland and a cold beverage. The property is new and modern hotel construction, huge, with a "Heritage/ Rajasthani/ Jaisalmer" look, well constructed, excellent and nice. It has more than 4 lawns, inside the campus. The suite was huge and well-decorated, fully equipped. The size of Deluxe room also was spacious, bathroom was also modern and spacious, neat and clean. Both the Suite as well as Deluxe Room had in-room tea/coffee kettle, with quality tea bags. Linen was neat and clean. The beds were large, clean and comfortable with multiple soft pillows. The ground floor Deluxe room had 2-chairs and a refrigerator and an attached small private lawn at the back. The quality of shower can be judged given the fact that though we spent one night at Tented accommodation at Sam (which had all the necessary arrangements for a hot shower), we opted to have our shower at Gorbandh Palace which is not only modern but also had a lot of complementary stock of toiletries and good pressure of water. The quality of sleep we had at Gorbandh was excellent. The lawns, grounds and swimming pool of the hotel all are excellently maintained. Our room, whether suite or deluxe was quiet and the temperature was fine. Complimentary breakfast buffet was elaborate and provided a very good coffee on demand. Room service was good. Staff courteous. They had also arranged an evening of Rajasthani cultural show in their lawns for their guests. I had ordered for Lal Maas in the dinner, which I presume was served from previously cooked and stored/refrigerated dish. Had the la-carte food in the restaurant been better, I would have given my par-excellent to the property. My special thanks and regards to Ms. Aruna of Delhi sales. Strongly recommended because it deserves.

Posted 28 Dec, 2010

I was on a official trip with my 3 colleagues. A decent welcome with garlands alongwith a complimentry awaited us. The rooms were spacious with top notch cleanliness. A majestic bed with central aircon, LCD TV, Fridge, Coffee table, All possible toileteries in the luxiourious bathroom with bathtub, Spic-n-span laundry etc made the stay a memorable one. Courteous and all helpful staff, well stocked bar and resteaurant, a fantastic swimming pool made you feel like a maharaja. The lavish breakfast spread (seeing is beleaving) already included in the tarrif was the icing on the cake.

"Helpful staff behaviour and clean rooms"

Posted 5 Nov, 2014

The overall experience was very good. Not faced any problem to reach the hotel. Staff member's behaviour was helpful. Food was provided as per the request. The location was convenient. Rooms were normal spacious, neat and clean. Basic amenities like TV, AC were available and were in working condition. Beautiful View was available from the room. Food quality was good. Satisfied with the room. No delay in check in and check out. Activities like swimming pool were available in the hotel. It was a family trip. Would like to recommend other travellers. Satisfied with the money paid. Suggest providing varieties of food should be available, Veg and Non- Veg section should be differentiated.
