Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews
We were upgraded to a lakeside cottage, which was very comfortable. The staff were brilliant (obviously the cghearth training was good). Food excellent and pool looked inviting. Wish we had stayed another night so we could have visited the bird sanctuary; a guide tried to take us in the evening, but they would not let us in. The walk back through the village was interesting though.
