Make no mistake about it - the approach to this fort is spectacular. Perched on top of a hill, there are fantastic views over the town and into the distance. And as other reviewers have pointed out, your expectations are raised as you enter the lower reaches of the hotel and see the beautifully decorated meeting-and -greeting halls, and as you are driven up by jeep, and dropped off near the top to walk to reception so you can really appreciate the drama of the approach..... then you are led to your room, and you are brought down to earth.Admittedly the room they had ready for us, above the underground swimming pool, was cleaned and ready for us - but the problem was that although I asked for a triple room, the room was only a double with an extra mattress on the floor, which my teenage boys flatly refused to take. So we were shown a sucession of rooms, many of which were very dingy with no windows, and some, including the one we finally took, none too clean. It was cleaned the next day, but we had the enduring notion of grit and grime and dust, which the management really need to address. Maintenance of the hotels facilities is poor - we observed an air conditioner supported by a brick or two, the water was either scalding or cold, the showers spurted water all over the floor and we never managed to work out how to stop this happening....The furniture is very rudimentary and the tub chairs outside our room were falling apart. There are no fly screens so the insects come in if you have the windows open for some air and warmth. Of course there is no tv and no high speed internet (which other cheaper hotels all have). Also the food was not really up to scractch, with only very few items on the menu available, and the buffet not so hot. We didn't have too much of a problem with dilatory service (we were lucky), and the waiters were friendly and chatty. But altogether, the fort is very expensive for what it is.
The tour of the fort above the hotel was interesting, and should not be missed. But unless you are really interested in exploring another poor Rajasthani township area, don't bother staying, as we did, two days. One day is quite enough. We did ask about the camel rides and horse rides which are advertised on the website and promotional literature - but of course they were 'not available'. The reason? It was the wedding season. Oh,and despite what we had read, there is only one swimming pool - a cavernous underground pool with 'naughty' pictures. Given the lack of regular cleaning in the rest of the hotel, we did not feel inclined to swim.
