Brijraj Bhawan Palace Hotel is a Heritage Hotel. It is also the residence of Maharao Brijraj Singh of Kotah and his family. It was built in 1830 A.D. as the British Residency and later became the
State guesthouse of Kotah in 1900 A.D. Many VVIPs from viceroys, Kings and Queens to Maharaja's and Prime Ministers have stayed here. Lord Curzon visited in 1903. Queen Mary of England stayed here on
her visit to 1911. Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi came in 1971.
This colonial style building is situated on the right bank of the river Chambal and commands a magnificent view. Its spacious rooms are graced with elegant period furniture. The drawing and dining rooms
are very eye catching, with many personal affects of the royal family. All bedrooms are air-conditioned with attached modern bathrooms, and are equipped with colour TV and telephone with national and
international access. Most rooms have a pleasing river view.
The well maintained lawns and terrace gardens add to the style of gracious living. An abundance of trees and general greenery in the riverside environ at Brijraj Bhawan Palace ensures the presence
of a wide variety of birds. Guests can play croquet on the green lawns here and also enjoy a game of tennis. A badminton court too is being made ready. In fact, guests are tempted to spend the entire
winter day soaking in the sun, relaxing, and doing nothing here.
