To spend some days in the Palace Utelia is an extraordinary experience indeed. Especially if one likes historical architectures. Though, the House needs desperately a proper repair. The rooms are very charming. We loved, staying there, in spite of the hard mattress. We had some interesting chats with the sympathetic owner of the Palace, the Prince himself. Through him, we...

we really loved this place and the village : great location overlooking the village, warm welcome, great food... and a lot of stories about the past of this place... the place takes you back in time of an almost forgotten era -- while jogging in and in the neighbourhood of the village i suddenly had a bunch of sympathetic and...

This crumbling old palace and village are so full of charm that you will fall in love in an instant. However I am forced to give it an average rating for the following reasons 1. Firstly booking.com screwed up our reservations and the homestay weren't ready for us. But after a few calls the caretaker opened up a dusty room...

To summarise, Usually the son takes care of this property, but since he was not there, our host was his father. A very nosy old fart, who wouldn't give you any space. Also he made a few cheap comments in passing, since I am traveling with a guy. He charged us 6500 which I think was a bit overpriced. Absolutely...

We fell in love with Palace Utelia when we first saw it online - and it exceeded our expectations. Utelia is about 80kms SW of Ahmedabad but it feels like stepping back into another time and place. The late 19th century Indo-Saracen palace is an absolute gem with domes, colonnaded verandahs and courtyard gardens. Our room was large, cool and...

This is not a palace in true sense. It is a haveli or mansion. It is owned by the decedents of the Vaghela clan who once ruled greater part of Gujarat and Western India before the Muslim invasion. The building looks old and the maintenance cost must be pretty high. They need a regular flow of tourists and history interested...

This review is overdue as it is a few months now since we stayed there. We discovered this through old faithful Google:) and booked by phone. Our trip was from Bhavnagar to the Little Rann and this hotel was conveniently located enroute for an overnight stay, thereby giving us the opportunity to visit Lothal as well. The hotel is a...

The palace is fascinating but in a dirty village near Lothal . The meet and greet of the Prince is a good welcome and with him you can have a nice chat . We only stopped here for lunch : apart from the fact that here one can finally enjoy a beer ( forbidden all over Gujarat ) , the...
