Hotel Bharatpur Ashok Reviews
There were no activities arranged by this hotel. I had visited this hotel for holiday purpose. The check in and checkout was done on time. The complimentary breakfast was provided in the hotel.
This is a lovely little hotel, located right in the heart of Bharatpur bird park. The location is fantastic and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The food and amenities are on par with what you pay. But nothing beats waking up in the morning listening to the chirping of birds. I would definitely visit again for a longer stay.
Location of the hotel and room along with all other facilities were very nice and the entire hotel staff was very supportive, humble and nice. In total, the experience was very awesome... Keep one thing in Mind If you want to come to Bharatpur you should book this hotel. Reason Food / Parking in the bird Century. Otherwise no parking in side. Apart....Read More
Stay was OK in the middle of the bird sanctuary with esp the location. However the service were average, food was nice, I feel should have been more secured. Staff was quite helpful with right attitude
The hotel is in the sanctuary itself, you can stroll into the bird sanctuary in the midst of nature. Even in off season we saw birds... Owls.. A monitor lizard, jackals and snake. Had a wonderful time here.
We visited the hotel in the peak season. Still we were satisfied, because of excellent location. Main attraction is the location. For the bird sanctuary, no better location can be found. We were a group of 9 people and we enjoyed our stay. The only hindering factor were the vehicle entry charges.
Needs a revisit. Great food and good people with awesome surroundings. Breakfast with Puri and bhaji was too good. Chilly chicken with lachha paratha is a must have thing there. Tea is really good with nice ingredients.
My visit was in off season, when summer was at its peak, temperatures nearing the 50 degree mark. Me and my wife were the only occupants. Staff were very polite and caring. Food was really good except that all options on the menu were not available due to low occupancy. To enjoy the sounds of silence, there cannot be a better place than this. Walk....Read More
The hotel is situated in the middle of the bird sanctuary - away from the city and is very quiet and peaceful. The food and the service was excellent. It was a good value for money and overall a very good experience. The location is very convenient for visiting the bird sanctuary.
The Ashok Bharatpur is located inside the Bird sanctuary, and in all, a very comfortable, affordable, and beautifully situated place. The staff is very helpful and professional, the rooms are clean, spacious, and suitably furnished, the food is great. You can take your car inside up to the hotel, and then take a rick or cycle to see the Bird sanctu....Read More

A. We visited Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary on 12th Mar and 13th Mar 2016. b. We (me and my friend) stayed at Bharatpur Ashok Forest Lodge c. The lodge is located about 2 Kms inside the entrance of Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sacntuary. It is surrounded by forest. One can hear the howling of the Jackal during the night. The lucky ones get to see the Jackal near the lodge although it is difficult to photograph in the pitch darkness or moon light. d. There are 17 rooms at the lodge. e. Air conditioning is provided in some of the rooms f. The rooms are neat and clean g. The queen size beds are provided in the rooms h. TV is provide in the room i. Fridge is provided in some of the rooms j. Breakfast is included in the room tariff. k. The bath room has a western commode, wash basin, bath tub. l. Tooth brush and tooth paste are provided along with basic soap. Suggested that you carry your shampoo, soap and shaving kit. m. Food is quite good and tasty. n. WiFi is available at the lodge and one can connect with the outside world. o. The receptionist (Harish) and room service (Lokesh) go out of the way to make you comfortable. p. THE MAIN ENTRY GATE IS JUST 300 Metres from the Lodge. HARDCORE WILD LIFE TOURISTS CAN ENTER THE PARK AT 6. 30 am AS SOON AS THE GATE IS OPENED. Regards Venkat
Location of the hotel and room along with all other facilities were very nice and the entire hotel staff was very supportive, humble and nice. In total, the experience was very awesome... Keep one thing in Mind If you want to come to Bharatpur you should book this hotel. Reason Food / Parking in the bird Century. Otherwise no parking in side. Apart flexibility to visit any time every time. Finally Such green Nature/ fresh oxygen you will not find anywhere.
My visit was in off season, when summer was at its peak, temperatures nearing the 50 degree mark. Me and my wife were the only occupants. Staff were very polite and caring. Food was really good except that all options on the menu were not available due to low occupancy. To enjoy the sounds of silence, there cannot be a better place than this. Walk down from the main gate up to the hotel 1. 5 kms just before it gets dark and you will see lots of animals returning home after their days' work.
Went there during Jan 2016. Best time to visit is between Jan-Mar. Hotel is located conveniently inside the national park but if you have a car, you have to pay 100/- every time you go out of the park. We didn't have to go out of the park main gate. The authorised rickshaws are the best options to visit the park. The rickshaw drivers are well-educated and work like guides too. However, you can hire guides at Rs. 150 per hour (Rs. 250 if you need binoculars). The park is beautiful and I personally liked the birds found in the wetlands part of the park. The rooms were comfortable and they had heater and geyser facilities. For hiring a rickshaw/guide, one has to walk 1. 5 kms to the main gate/reception of the park. I was disappointed as there were no driver rooms available. Lunch and dinner buffets are highly priced at Rs. 450 (Incl. Taxes) per person and the food was not at all good. It is recommended that one pays 100/- at the main gate and goes out to the nearby hotels for lunch/dinner. Overall, I liked the park and the visit was worth it. On the hotel front, it was average due to the various reasons as mentioned above.
The location of this Forest Lodge is, as the name suggests, is inside the forest -- in this case, on the edge of the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary. I would certainly stay here again because of the location -- everything else is pretty basic. Don't listen to the hotel staff when they tell you not to take a professional bird-guide and that the rickshaw-wallahs can guide you. They can't and we found this after wasting half a day. Get a good and trained guide. We took Prakash (mob: 09414944433). He is worth his weight in gold -- can speak English, is excited about birding, has a keen eye and uses a Sighting Scope to help you spot birds. He has been written about on the net and you may have to be booked in advance. Otherwise take any other trained guide who has a Sighting Scope -- don't rely only on binoculars. The point is that if you are interesting in birding, take a guide. Otherwise it will just be an interesting outing. Take the less traversed nature trail barely five minutes from the hotel. You will not be disappointed either in terms of spotting water birds or further on, the land birds and you are also bound to see some jackals and deer. Have fun! The people are very nice at the hotel as well as in Bharatpur.

If you are looking for a wilderness without compromising on luxury, look no further. Udai Vilas Palace next to Bharatpur Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect stay option. Visit the Keoladeo National Park with an ornithologist or just take a village s
