I stayed here for several nights in June 2019. The room I stayed in was very clean, with a small balcony overlooking the garden. The staff were quick to replenish any items that I used and the meals on the roof terrace were excellent. Due to it being the low season I was the only guest at the time and the staff made me feel like I was part of their family - making sure I was taken care of, inviting me to their village home, and even taking me to their family farm where I met a large part of the extended family. It was one of the highlights of my trip to India.
The minute our hotel pick up was confirmed for our group of 7 women by phone with Surendra (hotel manager) we knew we were in good hands. Surendra is pure joy. Smiling all the time, very helpful and runs the hotel with pride.
After our fun Tuk Tuk airport transfer we were taken to our bright and specious rooms. We meet in the dining room and WOW what a total
surprise lunch was so delicious. I was over the moon about the ginger naan and the spinach paneer. The chef is so good.
Tuk Tuk’s were arranged for us for all our excursions. Sexy temple tour. Dance festival. Outdoor market tour. Ayurvedic spa afternoon. And the tour of a small village school.
The hotel is a family and they make you feel like family. The staff all work as a team and are happy making their guests happy. They even surprised one of us in our group with a stunning cake on her birthday and they all came out to sing. I felt like we were in a movie staying there. Like the Marigold Hotel.
The staff was wonderful, so friendly and thoughtful, always looking to help with a smile. When I asked for Gin and tonic, the young man at the restaurant never heard of it, but went out and came back with a bottle of gin so he could offer it. The hotel’s outdoor space is also what makes it so nice. A lovely garden, balconies overlooking greenery and a rooftop terrace with beautiful views to enjoy the sunset while having dinner. The room was spacious and comfortable, had a private balcony facing the garden. The only thing I think could be improved would have been to come and clean the room automatically. After two nights, the rubbish bins were full, and I had to ask for replacing coffee/cups and toilet paper. The food at the restaurant was good overall, and I forgot the name of a certain chicken recipe I ordered, but it was the best I had during my trip to India!
The Isabel Palace is a beautiful hotel situated in the southern outskirts of Khajuraho. The place is pretty much all marble with interior courtyard and verandas which are either accessible directly from the rooms, or just across the corridors. The rooms are spacious and would be a delight in warmer weather. My room was clean and bathroom with hot water and loo paper.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Able to organise visits, train reservations (which can be a PITA in India). Just about anything you want. It is perfectly placed for the Airport, visiting the fabulous temples and getting down to the Panna Tiger Reserve to see the famous beasts. I wasn't lucky enough unfortunately but had a great visit all the same.
There is a restaurant in the hotel which has good food. There is also a nice roof terrace to pass your free hours with a drink. I can recommend this place, or Palace, without any reservations and would certainly come here again.
This is the worst hotel i have ever seen. The room quality is poor. No dustbin in washroom, no towel. The breakfast is very poor. They just offered 2 dishes in breakfast which was very basic. We have also orders 3 glass of milk for my 2 year old kid but thr quality of milk was very poor. The people in restaurant are also very lazy. They took 1 hrs to serve 2 dishes in breakfast. It is totally pathetic experience. I do not recommend to anyone this hotel. When we made complain at reception they were not taking seriously.
