Pictures are different then what you get to experience there. This is the review considering they charge you of a 5 star property. CONS: 1. Take drinking water along with you otherwise they will charge you for additional bottles as they do not even have an RO. Best part is that no one told us about this in advance. After a little argument they provided us water bottles. 2. Bring your own toiletries as there are hardly any available in bathrooms. Especially the dental kit and hair cleanser. We asked for it and they said it is out of stock and did not care to provide one. Ultimately we did not brush that morning. 3. Bring your own WiFi and firestick if you want to get yourself entertained there, as their WiFi doesn’t work and DTH is never recharged. 4. Do not expect any intercom facility through which you can call someone for anything. There is absolutely no one valuable in night (especially mid night). And best part is there is no intercom at all in rooms. 5. Don’t get in trap of them asking you that “I will get pakoras and chai for you in evening”, as this is chargeable. He will ask you the way as if it is complimentary thing from them. 6. Showers fitted in the bathrooms (bathing and toilet) are of no use since there is no pressure of water from them at all. Be ready to shower under a running tap. And you get an electric shock as well as our bathroom had some earthing issue. PROS: 1. size of rooms and bathrooms are massive. At least we got the big ones. There are small ones too. 2. Entire property is huge with loads of flowers, plants, trees and birds so that you can breathe some fresh air. 3. Nice sitting available outside almost all the rooms. 4. Food is mouth watering. What ever you order it is really delicious but they do not have a variety of it. But whatever they provide is really good. So think whatever is essential for you and then decide. One tip: whatever questions/doubts you have about the facilities they provide, please ask them over phone before you book one.…
a beautiful palatial property on the outskirts of jaipur.. takes u back in an golden era! from the moment u enter the gates after a narrow lane entering the castle. the fort walls gives u a mesmerising feel. beautifully done rooms. the food is authentic rajasthani and if u are a non veg it will surely be one of your best meals.
After a lot of internet search I have found Castle Kanota in Rajasthan, Jaipur City. I have visited to Castle Kanota with my family and enjoyed alot. The heritage feeling vibe me to the old history of Jaipur. The Rooms and suites are crystal cleaned and the room services are offered without ringing. We have also visited the other property of Kanota like Narain Niwas including Palladio & Shikaar Bagh for evening. We are going to visit here again on Holi for the festival celebration.
We were here one night- the penultimate night before we had to quickly leave India because of Coronavirus. As you enter the grounds through gates and a high wall, all of India is left at the kerb side. There is no getting away from the fact it has amazing grounds and is a beautiful building, filled with stunning antiques and artefacts. The rooms are breathtakingly spacious and decorated like 1920's Anglo/India. However, we were the only ones there and the lack of other people dented the ambiance some what. The pool never did get cleaned out for us and meal times was more a case of what they had in the fridge and larder than a menu or choice. I also saw something fluffy with a long tail wander about the kitchen door........and I am not talking about a mouse!!I had the worst nights sleep in India here. The mattress was solid!!! Hard and unforgiving and someone who has a back problem- my only respite was to go into a very tight foetal position and wedge myself into a very small two seater settee. For all the glitz and glamour, this was really not good. The following morning's breakfast was as dinner. We had said the night before that all we wanted was some fruit and coffee, yet dish after warm dish kept coming out. I was grumpy enough at having a terrible sleep, and this was just compounded at not being listened too. I do not like to offend or see waste so tried to eat some, but my stomach was not happy. The place is lovely but I feel they are riding the wave of guests going there because of the film, yet their hospitality and service was lacking warmth and understanding. I felt like I had to conform to their ways rather than a hotel looking after me.…
We only had one night here and would have liked to stay two. The home-cooked meals were lovely and the whole place had a great ambience with a fire pit outside in the Courtyard upstairs before dinner and the most amazing and lavish rooms. It was so nice to have a bath. The history of the place was fascinating and the surrounding township was so different to the hustle and bustle of the cities. The local people were friendly and not touting for business and we had a fascinating walk around the village - even being invited into a home. This is a great place to stay.
This hotel was booked by a tour I was on and was my favorite hotel of the trip. It’s stunning and unique with beautiful grounds, interesting history (there’s a museum onsite!) and every room is different. Fit for a King or Queen! I wish we had longer to stay than just one night. For as charming as this former palace is, there were some downsides. There is no heat and if you’re staying here during the winter it’s freezing at night! The beds are hard as rocks, I woke up the next day sore and stiff. At dinner you have to buy bottled water. Drinks are available to purchase but at almost NYC prices! We also lost power twice during our 24 hour stay (but it was quickly resolved) and other guests complained they couldn’t get hot water. Also, the pool needed to be cleaned but maybe that’s because it was January. Overall I loved staying here and it was a unique experience to stay at a castle! …
Stayed as part of a tour group. This property is like stepping into a movie set. It has real old world charm. From the chaos outside to these tranquil gardens. Check in is a little slow, seems everything is paper-based, no computers. Loved it. The rooms themself are amazing. All a little different. My room was large and comfortable. The wifi and AC worked well. The grounds are fantastic. You can walk almost all the way around the "castle" walls. The food was also great as was the service. All in all an amazing spot to just stop and catch your breath before you enter the fray again.
I can't possibly say enough good things about Castle Kanota but in summary - I could see myself living here. The rooms are so gorgeous and historical, beautifully furnished as well. The sitting room is beautifully laid out and has tons of comfortable furniture. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and accommodating. The grounds are immaculate and lush. Meals on the upstairs balcony, especially in the evening, are simply unbeatable. There is no part of Castle Kanota that I didn't absolutely love.
Love, love, loved this hotel ! I chose our Perigrine holiday because we got to spend a night here. It was everything I hoped for. Huge suite with seperate lounge. A bathroom as big as the bedroom and all the charm you would expect.
Castle Kanota is beautifully laid out with pleasant rooms and fabuous working museum-like common rooms. Walk the outer walls ground level and on the roof. It's a period furnished oasis in a rowdy neighbourhood. The power is a bit dodgy but shuffling your card in the door works. One tip, be aware of the gouging licquor prices - several times normal prices. Friendly staff will foist drinks onto you but check prices carefully if you don't get a menu. Otherwise it's a place you could relax for days.
