Stayed at Alipura Palace as part of a tour. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here!
My friend and I had a room on the top floor- had such a charm about it and stunning views of the whole district. The room was large and well air conditioned (there were a few generator blackouts in the night but not for long enough to let the room get hot!). The shower was hot - one of very few I experienced in India!
The staff cooked us up one of the best meals any of the tour group had in India - something to be said for a homecooked meal! There was fresh chicken from that afternoon and a good variety of veggie dishes - fresh, light and delicious! We were lucky enough to dine with the property owner - royalty in the local area. Was a fantastic experience.
We were also lucky enough for our fantastic tour leader to set up a game of cricket with the hotel staff and some of the local men. Within minutes there was a large crowd of local kids wanting to join in and help field, or just enjoy the spectacle.
Fantastic stay, would come again!
Like going back in time

Alipura palace is beautiful, a very old building partially converted into a hotel. The rooms are all different and ours was big with antique furniture. You can explore the palace and go on to the roof for views of the village and temple next door. They have a restaurant and small gift shop on site. The village of Alipura itself is a great insight into rural India.

This is a nice building that needs some maintenance and upgrading. the restaurant served great food.
Beware of the shop in the courtyard area as they are very forceful is there sales pitch, the quality of clothing is low and way over priced.
Wifi in the courtyard is hit and miss
Wonderful old palace

My favourite of all 7 hotels that I stayed in during my trip to India. This palace is huge, where we were able to explore all the nooks and crannies. Our room was lovely with a huge bathroom. The food is lovely and the staff friendly. Wifi is available in the courtyard. The terraces have great views over the village and river and there is a Hindu temple right outside the impressive entrance.
The village is a wonderful place to explore and everyone was friendly and happy to chat,especially the children.
The setting is peaceful and the palace is a mix of partly converted hotel as well as original old buildings, it really is a special place, where I could happily have spent longer.

Room 101 was huge! Although regular power shortages, this was a lovely hide and seek palace with lots of nooks and crannies. AC and fans in all rooms, good service in their restaurant, lovely atmosphere. We stayed here as part of a g adventures tour.
