Nothing palatial about this Palace! Avoid
Sad service. Breakfast served no cutlery, the coffee took over 20 minutes, no one seemed to care. Asked to speak to the GM, no one connected me. Asked for ice at lunch, they said no ice is available as the machine is broken. I’ve arranged after 3 hours. Took car service from the hotel, totally disorganised and no communication and readiness. Food variety is limited, asked for more options, nothing available. Paneer tikka masala made on special request but the paneer was never put in the tandoor. Very sad for a five star. Overpaid for the property and surely much below my expectations.
