Palace Hotel Bikaner House at Mount Abu (Rajasthan, India) was the summer residence of the royal family of Bikaner. Constructed in 1893 during the minority of Maharaja Ganga Singhji, the mansion was designed by the legendary architect Sir Swinton Jacob, under the supervision of the Council of Regency, and now a fine heritage hotel and best accommodation option in Mount Abu. Set on vast grounds amidst tranquil hills, Bikaner house occupied one of the best locations in Mount Abu and was visited regularly by the Maharaja and the royal family. In 1962 Maharaja Karni Singhji decided to convert the royal residence into a hotel. At the Palace Hotel your time is spent only in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. For years our guests have come back to assimilate the surrounding flora and fauna, to experience the quiet and solitute, to stroll the gardens, to absorb the smell of pine and fresh leaves in the air, to sit by the lake or to simply do nothing.
Connaught House was formerly used as the summer capital of Sir Doland Field, erstwhile Chief Minister of Marwar, and the former princely state. It was later converted in to a heritage hotel; Connaught House enjoys a favorable weather and has a splendid architecture. With a walking distance from Mount Abu, this place is a favorite among tourists.
