Like many historic homes, Castle Mandawa is a curious mixture of the old and the new. Medieval turreted towers, palanquin-roofed balconies, blend with modern comforts in old-world rooms. Family portraits, antique cannons and arms add to the charm of this family-run resort where tradition still runs strong. Today, the world comes to this storybook town to see its colourful frescoes on every subject under the sun, that is, ranging from the religious to the erotic; from copies of popular English prints to witty social satire, rendered in the inimitable style of the local artist. And perhaps the best place to discover the legacy of Shekhawati is from the comfort of Castle Mandawa, a fortress, now converted into a luxurious heritage hotel. Explore Castle Mandawa at your own pace. Spend a leisurely hour over a drink in the colonial verandah that accommodates the bar, or relax in the cosy comfort of the Diwankhana, the formal drawing room decorated with family portraits and an array of antique armour.

Former castle now (partly) rebuild as an luxury hotel. When entering the courtyard we had a wrong impression of this hotel because it looked rather dilapidated. Oh boy...where we wrong ! Once you entered you step into a fairy tale from thousand and one nights. Beautiful decorated salons, enormous well maintained garden, swimming pool in an unbelievable decor... Our standard room was large and furnished with IMHO a rather Moresque interior. The bathroom was the largest we have ever seen in a hotel ! With separate bath and a beautiful shower with pillars. All worked well. A fridge, safe box and coffee and tea maker was available as well as two complimentary bottles of mineral water. The complete staff was friendly and polite and provided a good service. The points that made our

As we had stayed there 18 years ago we were upgraded to a beautiful room with a terrace overlooking the pool.The room is enormous and very clean and comfortable.From the outside the hotel appears to be "faded glory" but inside everything is delightful. The dining room is very attractive and the food excellent.The staff are all friendly and helpful. It is only a short walk into the town which has several places of interest.

We only stayed one night, but wish we could have stayed for longer. The room was spacious and clean. The water had some rust in it when we first turned it on, but that cleared up shortly. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful. The restaurant was great! Great food, and the wait staff was amazing. The hotel grounds are amazing. The pool area is beautiful. The stay here was one of the highlights of our India trip.

When you come to the hotel it doesn't seem the same place you have reserved. Generally dusty, it is, at the same time, very fascinating. Our room was wonderful, with a extremely high bed, sofa, alcoves and a nice veranda (table really dirty...). The pool is wide and refreshing. Sleeping in a place like this is interesting, even if its great potential could be developped a lot.

Very nice place to visit. Ideal for weekend visit. The suite was epitome of comfort and luxury. The hotel was truly an example of bygone era of havelis which Shekhawati region is famous of. The staff was courteous n friendly. The amneties in the hotel like pool, coffee shop and souvenir shops were cool. Will definitely recommend friends and family to visit.

Although we stayed there for one night still the experience was fantastic. We were upgraded to a suite despite paying for the deluxe room.The food was delicious, staff was courteous, property is very clean and beautiful. It's the perfect place to go with your spouse. Little tip: Take the suite with the balcony which overlooks the pool. You will have the most amazing night ever.

We visited in the month of May, off season. It wasn't crowded. The fort gives you a nice feeling. It is private property of Royal Family. There is entrance Fee. There are old portions and new portions have been added. The restoration work is going on. The pool area is very nice. Lot of scenes of Bollywood movies have been shot in this Fort. The frescoes are related to Mythology, history and Culture of Rajasthan. Nice experience but Nawalgarh Havelis have more Frescoes.
