I booked a standard room at $170 and left feeling ripped off. The grounds were lovely, beautiful pool, and it was cool staying in a palace. BUT the standard room was poorly furnished from what looked like flea market furniture. The room, as many say, is below par and definitely a two-star place. The bath had a bare fluorescent ceiling bulb and a blow dryer from 1970s with a hose! The door was locked with a chain and combination lock, which didn't fully close. Worst is the owners, who rake in the money knowing that the room is straight out of the 1970s and cheap. If the room were $70, I wouldn't complain. But to pay a lot of money in India for a two star room made me feel cheated. I will not return.
