Excellent treatment of the guests

Posted 27 Jul, 2015

My Sister has been going regularly to Usha Kiran palace in Gwalior for the last 4-5 years during the summer break in June. They travel as a group and this time she asked me to join. We have not been travelling for the last year as a family since my daughter is only 9 months old and we are always wary of the hotel food for our baby. Sis guaranteed that the hotel staff would take good care of us and the baby. Am I glad that I took her advice and went for this trip. The drive from Delhi to Gwalior was very smooth and we reached the hotel within 6 hours. The staff agreed to give us an early check-in and we were happily in the room within 15 minutes. This is a palace converted into a hotel so the rooms are big and airy. We could play soccer in our drawing room. The real help started with our lunch. Sous Chef Rakesh Gouniyal personally took care of the food preparation for our child. He was more than helpful in personally making dishes like khichdi, mashed potatoes and fries for the baby. The staff was more than ready to help out with cleaning and sterilizing my child's plates. The hotel is meant for a relaxing stay. We would get up and have a heavy breakfast and then laze in the pool throughout the day and end with a dinner in the restaurant. I had the best spa experience at the Jiva spa. The Spa therapist Narain has the best hands in the business and I was completely relaxed after my session with him. Definitely a property to visit for the ambiance and the way the staff takes of the guests

A wonderful and relaxing experience by Taj

Posted 24 Jul, 2015

I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel as I was on a business trip to Gwalior. I stayed there for about 10 days and it did not disappoint me. The hotel as you enter gives a very royal feeling as it is a heritage property. The palace as I was told was an annexe to the main palace of the King of Gwalior and it was very nicely renovated and converted to a 5 star hotel. The decor has the essence of the royal family as they have displayed the photos and memorabilia from the family in every corner of the hotel. I got room 205, which was very big and spacious although there was no view out from the window. The pool was standard size and was clean too. It was lighted during the evenings and closes by 8 pm. There was a small gym right next to it with basic equipments. There was spa also but, I did not get the time to go and experience it. The breakfast was lavish and had a mix of Continental and Indian dishes which varies on a day to day basis. The live omelette counter is must try. Also try the special chocolate muffins and doughnuts which are baked fresh every morning. The dinner was a buffet again with a vast range of choices. Choice of breads were available. Must try is the Marathi Chicken curry and the Dal Makhani. In dessert they had a very interesting 'mirch ka halwa', and it was simply amazing. The Taj Hotels are known for their hospitality and you indeed feel the warmth in it. The people there give a personal touch to all the guests and make your stay memorable. And yes they give free WiFi!!
