The property is well connected from Delhi and is a pleasant 6 hours drive. Some stretches were under renovation at the time we traveled.
The property is grand and imposing and has a wonderful heritage feel about it. Very well maintained as well.
The rooms are gigantic with huge washrooms and a sitting area just outside. It was really cold when we visited and the two heaters in the room were life saving. Being on the top our room had adequate sunlight as well.
The evening we arrived, we booked a sundowner. This was essentially open gypsies modified for safari which took us over sand dunes and into the desert to a vantage point to view the sunset. This was a nice experience especially for my 12 year old son. We did get to see some deer, neel guy, different birds etc. Hot tea and fresh biscuits were served sitting in comfy camp chairs (some hot pakoras would have been nice!).
The breakfast and food in general was good (they charge for cappuccino during the inclusive breakfast - definitely not done!). The staff is friendly and helpful. They can be more professional.
The property has taken great care to create and maintain some amazing spaces within the hotel like a hawa mahal on the terrace with coloured glass, a WW II lounge, dungeons which double up as a conference or party area, weapons lounge (which has a pool table - needs replacement / repair).
The New Year evening was well organised with live DJ music in the dungeon, an open area at the rear which served up fresh pizzas from the clay oven, kababs from the barbeque and live pasta counter - all very nicely done.
The area around the Mahal is full of old havelis, most in disrepair or abandoned, but they add an amazing feel to the area.
One of the highlights of our visit was a drive onto roads into the wilderness where we chanced upon a small dhaba which served us a fresh and delicious home cooked vegetarian meal!
