My husband and I spent two nights at the Nadesar Palace while on honeymoon and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the staff made us feel right at home from the start. Varanasi was the first city we visited in India and although we were a bit overwhelmed at first, the hotel served as a perfect oasis away from the exciting, and at times chaotic, environment just outside its gates.

Pros:
-Traditional welcome and farewell ceremony
-Expansive grounds
-Congratulatory Cake and flowers for honeymoon
-Good security
-Tasty food that can be customised upon request
-Spacious suites
-Music at the hotel restaurant in the evenings
-Friendly and attentive service
-Good AC in the rooms
-Sense of privacy due to small number of rooms
-Peaceful atmosphere
-Close to the Ganges via car
-Very knowledgeable guide provided by hotel

Cons:
-Rooms seem outdated compared to those in other hotels throughout India (including other heritage properties)
-The pool has many pigeons bathing in it which may cause some people to not want to swim in it themselves
-You cannot walk to any of the tourist cites so you need to take a car to and from the hotel every time you want to go out and explore

We went to Nadesar Palace for lunch and had a wonderful meal with terrific service. At the completion of dining, we were offered a tour of the grounds. To our surprise, it was a complimentary tour in a horse drawn carriage. The carriage was almost 200 years old. The coachman was charming and friendly. He was also very knowledgeable of the history of the property.

Spent 4 nights here traveling with Micato India. This small 'palace' hotel was wonderful.
Outstanding service.. that includes a horse and carriage ride around the grounds (no charge), a 5 hotel 'golf' course (no charge) with a caddy, the rooms are lovely, large and the entire property is very well maintained.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms were excellent

We stayed a few nights at the Nadesar Palace as we heard that this was the best place to say in the city. Lo and behold, the palace is situated on a large estate with beautiful grounds. Our room was spacious, comfortable and had all the amenities. The restaurant is on site and is pretty good. It was a pleasure wandering the peaceful grounds of the estate after experiencing all the chaos in Varanasi. We also took a nice horse drawn carriage tour of the estate with the groundskeeper who entertained us with some history and stories about the estate. The service was pleasant and accommodating but lacked the fine polish that you may find at other Taj or luxury properties. Kush, our attendant was very pleasant and helpful. Of note, we had to spend a few hours at the adjacent Gateway Hotel because of security for foreign dignitaries and the GM at that hotel could not have been nicer and more accommodating for our brief stay. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Stayed: March 2018

Banaras is a very special place. Its is the world's oldest city. If you want to experience luxury and get the taste of the best local cuisine, stay at Nadesar place. Nothing comes close to this experience. Its expensive but you will want to come back again just to feel pampered.
