Lalita Mahal Palace - Review
The Lalitha Mahal is the second biggest royal residence in Mysore. It is found close to the Chamundi Hills, east of the city of Mysore in the Indian state of Karnataka. The castle was completed in 1921 at the requests of His Highness Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, the Maharaja of Mysore for the selective stay of the presiding Viceroy of India. Built on a raised ground, the royal residence was molded on the lines of the St. Paul's Cathedral in London and is one of the encroaching structures of the Mysore city. The royal residence painted in immaculate white colour is strikingly stylish. It was changed over into a legacy lodging in 1974. It is presently run as the best inn of the Ashok Group of the India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) under the Government of India. Be that as it may, a culture of the definitive illustrious feeling of the royal residence is administered. The supporting structure of the royal residence is of the Ionic twofold section.

Lalita Mahal Palace, Mysore Reviews
Beautiful and rich. Our visit was for lunch and it was absolutely delicious. Prices are high, although if you wanna get a Royal treatment once in a while, this place is perfect to go to. More ideal for an official lunch or dinner. The place obviously has a pleasant and serene ambience. The staffs are very courteous.
The hotel is a palace converted to a hotel cum resort. It belonged to the sister of the king, Lalitha Devi. The hotel is a little outside the hustle and bustle of the city which gives it the peaceful and calm atmosphere. The architecture is of course royal as it was a palace earlier. The interior is beautiful and the artefacts and paintings give an elite feel to the hotel. The room service is also very good. The overall experience of the stay is very pleasant and royal. There is a swimming pool and garden area, an inbuilt restaurant and dining hall where occasional live music performances also take place. There are different sections of the palace where in even the viceroys used to stay. All in all, at least give 1-2 days to explore the palace /hotel fully, it's worth it.
Fabulous Landmark but can’t say the same about the Rooms. Great service. Food is not too bad. But the rooms are quite rundown and smell damp. In urgent need of a renovation. But a beautiful property to visit.
Everything was stunning. The Palace and its surroundings are such a sight, and everything is beautifully maintained. Staying there was a grand experience - we stayed in the heritage room for one night, and for the rest of our stay, we had a deluxe room. Both were pretty and comfortable, but nothing extraordinary. It was more the palace in its entirety, and features such as the dining hall which made it special. It's worth staying here for the unique experience. The views make for great photos too!
The Lalit Mahal Palace Hotel is actually a real palace converted to a hotel. A lot of efforts are being made to convert it into a luxury hotel. The rooms may be big in size, but it needs some attention and renovation. The current price / tariff of the rooms are appropriate for the amenities like the luxurious garden, the swimming pool and the palace environment. The food service is getting ramped up currently.
