Rampura fort, located at the edge of the Chambal ravines, has been on my bucket list for years. Finally made it, stopping for one night on a motorcycling holiday. It’s everything one imagined and more. A dramatic Rajput fort located at the edge of the Chambal ravines, with a charming interior patiently restored by Keshvendra Singh and his charming wife Padmini. The owners are hospitality personified. We sat in on a fascinating conversation about local politics around the fire and then over indulged in a delicious meal. There’s a lot to do around here. The Chambal/Yamuna is a haven for wildlife and the rich history is evidenced by the old forts and palaces in the vicinity. Will definitely return to this interesting corner of the country. Rooms were charming, well equipped and comfortable.

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful and historical fort. The welcome from the owners was more than we could expect, we visited the fort as well as interesting local places with them, had long conversations several times a day and ate so well. We couldn’t have asked for a better time. Highly recommended- especially of you want to get away from all the crowds and learn a lot. Our grateful thanks to Padmini and Kechavendra.

We had such a wonderful stay at Fort Rampura. The main highlight of the place are the hosts Ms Padmini and Mr Keshavendra. They went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. They were so nice to my kids indulging them in puzzles, banter and laughter. The fort itself is so majestic and beautiful. We had a lovely time exploring the fort and listening to its history. There is a lovely pond with in the property which makes for a great walking track. The icing on the cake is definitely the food. The best i have eaten in a while. We stayed there for two days. The best two days. 10 on 10 i would recommend this place. Thank you again to our wonderful hosts.

We had a wonderful stay at Fort Rampura. It was fascinating to hear about the history of the place and the plans for future. The rooms are comfortable and the food is absolutely wonderful. We were so well looked after by the hosts, Padmini and Keshavendra, they were warm and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed trying our hand at pottery and the boat trip was relaxing. All in all a really fantastic couple of days. Thank you and we will hopefully visit again!

An action packed two night/one full day stay here in Rampura was been incredible. Engaging in Pottery, a boat ride and an awsome music performance made our stay here incredibly good fun. The fort provides a unique and wonderful place to stay the hosts are excellent and just to boot the food is sensational!

A charming property by the yamuna ravines coupled with warm hospitality and homely food! Padmini and Keshavendra take great care about the smallest of things coupled with some amazing stories making them the perfect hosts. We drove from Lucknow and it took us about 5 hrs, road conditions are great. Winter is the best season. Things to do: Explore the fort Explore the ravines Chill by a nearby river Relax in the beautiful rooms ! There are a couple of forts nearby which may be explored.

Our trip to Rampura fort was an unique experience. It was like a home stay away from home, with all the comforts of modern amenities in a spacious room attached with huge terrace .we could enjoy the sunrise with chirping of birds .The food served was absolutely delicious, cooked according to our taste n requirements ( my husband being gluten sensitive ) . Mr Keshavendra n Mrs Padmini are wonderful hosts , looked after us like family , took us on a walk around fort and inside the fort , for boat ride and visit to temple located in centre of ravines . Overall it was a memorable trip .

Our stay at the Fort Rampura was nothing short of a fairytale. The rooms are really spacious and the fort has all modern amenities needed to be comfortable. The food was very hearty and our favourite was the singharas and the lovely cheese omlettes we had for breakfast. We got a tour of the fort and a dossier of the history of the fort from Ms. Padmini (our excellent host!) You can see the ravines from the fort and the views are breathtaking!!

Fort Rampura is a fantastic heritage property off the beaten path in a small village. The fort/palace itself was built going on 800 years ago and the current occupant (and our host) is 14th generation resident. Keshavendra Singh is a wonderful host...he dined with us, showed us around the fort and surrounding grounds, took us on a walk to the local temple and more. The rooms are full of curiosities and interesting family memorabilia and Keshavendra was happy to share his history. The food was excellent. We were served a variety of dishes (some local and some from other regions) and each was excellent. There is billiards and other games available if you wish and our host joined us for some evening fun. There are just four rooms and all have their own washroom, shower and bathtub. These are the same rooms the family stays in when visiting. This is a fantastic heritage property and a truly unique experience. Enjoy!
