I will start by saying I am easy to please. .. Give me a clean room of comfortable proportions and I take to it.
Gorbandh palace was built in 1992 and the property covers a huge area. .. The facade is comparable to any 5-star hotel... The same grandeur is evident at the reception, the dining room, the lawns and party places, the terraces and the pool. There are elegant courtyards all around the property and outside your rooms and that's where the grandeur ends.
The rooms are surprisingly small and very disproportionate to the rest of the property.The room size is a regular lemon tree hotel size or smaller probably. For me that was a rude shock especially since the pictures suggested otherwise and i booked it for 3 adults. The room is not big enough for even 2 adults. So here's where the romance ended for me, the washroom was even tinier. It didn't help that the management was lax in ensuring our comfort despite my apparent displeasure at the room. I stayed there for 3 nights since i had booked for 3 nights and despite constant reminders they only provided for tea cups and water for 2 people only even though i paid for the third bed in advance and the additional bed lay in the room as a constant reminder of triple occupancy. And this after i placed a call with Expedia and the rep intervened and assured me that facility would ensure my utmost convenience. On one occasion they forgot me for 20 minutes after handing me the menu, there were only 3 other tables occupied then.
