I checked in late night! Experience was amazing. Staff is really cooperative & helpful. I requested for late night dinner, chef personally came & took my order. I was simply amazed & food was really delicious. Rooms - Very neat & clean. Place - Very calm & peaceful. Beautiful property ♥️ Thanks to the management for providing appropriate last minute hospitality :D I would strongly recommend this place if you are visiting Mandawa (Good for refreshing yourself) 🤘 Cheers, Vibhu

Nice hotel with beautiful garden. Large room with typical indian style. Restaurant offers correct buffet but be careful about the price of the drinks which are amazingly expensive. Hotel is located outside of Mandawa, nothing to do in the neighborhood. More generally, Mandawa excursion could be bypassed or skipped in your Rajasthan tour. Not very interesting, you will have many other opportunities to see havelis elsewhere.

By chance we stopped at this property on last Sunday and had a wonderful stop over. This place is amazing with 100 rooms and they have a pool and restaurant with other facilities etc. The staff was very courteous and the manager himself was a nice person and shared a lot of info about the property itself. Need not say much as I have attached the pics for info.

Nice and unusual place to start with, but they really use their privileged position of being 2 km away from the town centre (and other restaurants and shops) to ask for significantly higher prices than other hotels on our trip for food and drinks. They are still moderate by European standards, but just unexpected considering what you get. Worst experience: the restaurant. The food is OK, even good compared to some other places, but they try to cheat with the prices. First of all “there is a connection problem”, so card payment is not possible (hard to believe). Then we just got the total amount presented on a calculator! As it seemed more than expected, we asked for the detailed bill. It took them a while to write it up (apparently not their habit). The amount was of course much lower, and the waiter tried to lie to me saying this is what he had shown me before on the calculator. Then the milk shake cost more than on the menu as “these are the old prices” (!) (in the hotel lobby there is a price list with the new, higher prices). Needless to they we never heard the word sorry. WiFi only functions in the lobby. As everyone congregates there to use it, don’t expect the connection to be fast. Don’t consider buying any artisan products at the hotel. You can get them at a fraction of the price in shops elsewhere (even if you aren’t good at negotiating).

Our group stayed at this property for two nights. Upon arrival to the property and exiting our bus there was a scent of exhaust or sewage outside of the hotel entrance. After passing through the main hotel entrance building on each side there are two-story newer looking units, while at the very rear of the complex are circular bungalows which our group stayed in. After our group received room assignments and got settled in the bungalows were very cold and it was very hard to warm up the rooms. After chatting with others in our group at dinner, we were informed to check with reception to get a floor space heater which was delivered after a while and certainly helped to warm up the room. I have never understood rooming units that only provide one chair on the front porch for two people. There was only one small bottle of comp water in the room. Other amenities in the room included, flat screen TV with remote, work desk with chair, bedside table, another small table and chair, coffee/tea, cups/glasses, A/C, ceiling fan. Negative items: the fridge had thick mold spots inside, shower/tub drainage very poor, spider webs on the bed headboard, and room phone to contact reception was all static. Wi-Fi available for pay only! Grounds: There was a very nice pool, walking paths around the grounds, but there were lots birds in the trees and geese on the grounds which seemed to be ‘domesticated’ as they were stored in a building at night. Also, with all the birds it did not make it ideal to walk or sit on the grass due to all the bird waste. Meals: Dinner-Only wine served no beer and this we were informed was due to governmental regulations of sales within 500m of the autobahn. We had various Indian dishes that were good. There was a puppet show during dinner that was sort of strange and a dancer came out later, but the music was way too loud during this performance. Breakfast-consisted of boiled eggs, toast, butter/jam, cereals, Indian dishes, porridge, banana, papaya, coffee/tea, cookies, (insider tip)-omelets on request only. It was very nice that on our early morning departure date the breakfast was opened early for our group. Staffing: Restaurant staff, management, room attendants, and maintenance were very good. Reception was not always staffed as they were sometimes in the office room in the side room.

The idea and layout of the hotel is good. We were there while they were building extra rooms and doing renovations. Our air conditioning did not function correctly and we struggled to sleep. The hotel was full of dust and need constant cleaning. The hotel staff were a little strange but did their best to help. Really should not be receiving any guests while under such extensive re build.

This doesn't at first sight strike you as a typical tourist hotel, but interesting as it's in the middle of nowhere! The setting gives an impression of a fortress from the outside and a grass courtyard inside surrounded by chalet style individual rooms. There are some lovely painting/murals on various walls to depict the style of the Havelis which the old silk traders used to inhabit many years ago. The food selection was limited but it all tasted good and was hot, being replenished quickly . The attentive staff are pleasant and eager to please. My electric in room was off on arrival but was fixed within 30 minutes and it took a while to cool down, but it was 48 degrees outside. In the meantime I took full advantage of the swimming pool (free towel) and pleasant grounds. We had a sandstorm during the evening around 9pm, and the Staff coped very well as all the sand blown into the complex was nowhere to be seen inside on the trip to breakfast. Breakfast was adequate compared to some other hotels but it was hot and replenished quickly. SURPRISINGLY the hotel had no bar! So with the dinner only white wine and beer available and the odd soft drink sprite/coke. The wi-fi was only free in the lobby. and not available elsewhere I enjoyed my stay here as it had some character and rooms comfortable. Food was good although limited choice, but certainly not the worse place I have stayed in India .

A very well developed ‘lodge’ complex in an unexpected setting close to Indian desert. An ancient trading town on the Silk Road. Some negative reviews are totally unfair. Guests can only be given what there is to give and this is given very generously with good food, lovely attentive staff, pleasant en suite lodges and powerful air conditioning. There is a swimming pool and pleasant grounds. Staff cope well with the sands that can blow. I well recommend this spot.

Not a typical tourist hotel, but interesting. The place gave an impression of a fortress, as the large lawn area was surrounded by the cabins. Swimming pool was available, BUT SURPRISINGLY the hotel had no bar! With the dinner only white wine was available. The selection of food on the dinner and breakfast tables were rather limited

The rooms are individual chalet type surrounding a large garden which looks good on the internet but in reality is a bit sad with a large area of it brown and dried out. It was raining when we arrived and the power was out. It came back on in most of the hotel but not in our block and so we had to move. There was a strange drain-like smell in our second room but the management were reluctant to move us again and so we put the air con on full blast and it did eventually go away. The buffet dinner was good and breakfast was OK . The swimming pool looked odd as the tiles were very dark and it gave the impression that the water was dirty although I didn't think it was. However, I did notice the morning we were leaving that it had been drained so maybe there was a problem after all. The wi-fi was only free in the lobby.
