We were appauled by the quality of the food at this hotel. We dined with another couple and ordered 6 dishes, two of them (chicken) were raw and another chicken dish was clearly off. The food was sent back to the kitchen but the second lot wasn't any better. We had been in India for 2 weeks in 5 hotels and had not been ill, but after only a few mouthfulls in that so called restaurant we had the trots. Only eat here is you want to be very ill and ruin your holiday.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Trident Hotel

Good Hotel with gtreat service

from Sunilt
Spent two nights at this hotel. Great service, good food. Good value. Decent rooms.

Superb Hotel

from Thunderbird2
Finished our holiday in March with four nights here - loved every minute. Hotel is in a great location backing onto the Oberoi Udai Villas (worth a walk to have a look), 5-10 minutes from the old city by auto-rickshaw. Pool fantastic, views and gardens wonderful, buffet food good but a la carte much better. Only downside was the outside terrace restaurant was not always open. Do the boat trip from the hotel jetty- 40 mins or so round trip and a great introduction to the town. Probably our favourite hotel of the holiday: would recommend it anytime.

our view of the monsoon palace

from boomerang12
We were pleasantly suprised by this hotel. The service (getting a cold coffee with icecream) was a little slow but the food at meal times was generally good and the view from the dining room was great. The pool was very clean and the grounds of the hotel were peaceful. Our room was clean and pleasant. The hotel was spacious and inviting. Be careful of those sun umbrellas near the pool - they do not protect you from the suns rays! Use sunscreen.

poor food and service

from blana
My wife and I were most disappointed with our 3 days in this hotel. The Buffet was very limited and the food was cold. It was the worst experience we had in our 4 weeks in India. Also the so called Gymnasium was a joke. The room was small and the Treadmill was broken.

Very Average

from traveller06London
My wife and I stayed at the Trident for two nights in March, the rooms were small but clean and decorated in a simple but tasteful manner.

However, service levels were not up to sctratch, the hotel only has one restaurant (multi-cuisine) with a limited menu. The food was very bland, it felt as if the chef was trying to stick to the middle of the road on every dish. One lunch time our main course arrived before our starters! Overall the service was sloppy.

On arrival we were promised a late check out but on the day the hotel went back on its word.

The Trident gets away with being average because Udaipur has very few good quality hotels, I would recommend it's sister hotel Udaivilas.

Great place to relax

from MKSDelhi
We had a deluxe pool facing room and the only fault we could find throughtout our stay of 3 days was that it felt a little cramped with a 4 month old and a boisterous two and a half year old, but that's relative, since our bedroom at home is really huge. Despite this, we managed really well in the large bed, and had a great time at the Trident Hilton. Should we go to Udaipur again, the only reason not to stay at the Trident will be the sister hotel next door - the awesome Oberoi Udaivilas. The hotel was quiet, peaceful and very well maintained, and it wouldnt be a bad idea to stroll the lawns to look around the Udaivilas. The Trident's service was swift, extremely helpful and unintrusive. The travel desk was very helpful, the drivers extremely courteous and knowledgeable. The inhouse AVIS cars are only marginally expensive compared to 'budget' rentals, so dont scrounge on this most important part of sightseeing - the hilton / oberoi cars are easliy recognisable / respected in town. Traders may overprice things when they see a hilton car, but you can easily bargain, resting assured that they will never cheat you, for fear of being sidelined by the hilton group based on a hotel guest's complaint. Foreign tourists should talk to the staff or Indian guests at the hotel, to pick up tips on local bargains / good shops. Overall, a great place to stay if you want quality in a decent budget.

Great!

from Bukwaas
Great hotel. Conveniently located. Beautiful views. Clean rooms. Helpful staff. Nice pool.

Very tiny exercise room. Limited restaurant selection. Onsite travel agent a bit aloof. Calling on-resort 'wildlife sanctuary' is an over exaggeration.

Best Hotel in Rajasthan

from Lycos
A friend and I travelled to Rajasthan in October of '05 and this hotel was our most favorite. The fact that we were two women travelling in India probably had something to do with it. This was the first hotel where we were treated respectfully. Okay, sometimes it was a little overboard, but it was still appreciated. "You two are looking good tonight!" and "You can't possibly have children!" were a couple of comments received that were quite humourous to a couple of middle aged women who hadn't seen much humour in a very male oriented society. This was also the first hotel we had seen 1) room service menus and 2) directory of services. After staying in so-called 5 star hotels, this was a breath of fresh air.
The only downside was the uninviting lounge. It was far too bright and the service was far too slow.

Excellent Service, good value for money

from A TripAdvisor Member
Had the most enjoyable stay last November at the Trident. The attitude of the staff and service provided was exceptional - it made our stay memorable. They went out of their way to accomodate my vegeterian parents, always smiling and even remembering our names.
I have been fortunate enough to stay at the best hotels around the world and I must say this was one of best in hospitality that I have ever experienced- truly Indian in style! Above all it was really good value for money.

Wheres the Water?

from johncoward
Whilst this hotel is situated in beautiful gardens with abundant birdlife and a well situated pool the lake does not exist. It has been dried up for at least three years due to failing rains and it is very naughty of the travel industry to not point this out as we chose this hotel because of the position and photos showing the views of the lake. The rooms are spacious and well appointed but the service in the single dining room was very slow considering that it was mainly a buffet. However the management has said that they are addressing this aspect and as long as guests realise that their is no lake then the hotel is well worth staying at.

Top Local Tips for Udaipur

Driving services Our driver Manoj from Travel Made Easy was absolutely fantastic - nothing was too much for him. He was always ready waiting for us, provided very useful information and made the whole trip through India very enjoyable. I thoroughly recommend his services

go after a good monsoon If there is a good rainy season, and you travel to udaipur afterwards, all lakes will be full of clean water. You can enjoy "city of lakes" in true form..

Beware the City Palace Beware the Palace. The 50 Rs. is about right for the quality of the museum, but the 200 Rs. camera fee is extortion for the single money shot of the lake palace. There is a short jetty below the palace that gives at least a good a view if you pay the nominal hotel use fee. Also, avoid the package deal. The "lake cruise" may not be worth the time wasted waiting for the boats (once an hour, except at noon when the crews take off for lunch). The second island only houses a sad cafe and an empty building. A water taxi leaves every 20min or so not far from the hotel docks and will save you from being stranded on either side. The crystal exhibit is worthwhile to see an entire room furnished in crystal, though some of the tableware looks like Crate & Barrel rejects.
