Excellent property, perfect location, serene ambience and more-ever great pinch of hospitality. The only drawback is that property is not suitable for aged or for those who is having knee problems due to steep ramp & stairs. One suggestion to property is to start rom service & improve wifi connectivity. Thanks to Mr. Shakti and his team for their incredible services.

Dear Guest, We are happy to hear that you had a positive overall experience at our fort, appreciating its excellent features such as the perfect location, serene ambiance, and great hospitality provided by Mr. Shakti and his team.

Dont visit this property.. they are not aware of hospitality… Service team take order and don’t deliver food.. Outdoor lawn - they are serving snacks but main course they don’t serve or will forget to communicate. Rooms are outdated and nothing fancy about the property.. Pathetic experience and poor internal coordination between staff.

Dadhika Fort is perched on top of a hill and is picture book pretty. It really does look like the advert pictures. It is beautifully restored and maintained. Having written that you must realise it is an old fort in the countryside, so there are some idiosyncratic things about it, ( don't expect a glossy Hilton) which we felt added to it's charm. We spent 3 nights here and absolutely loved it. . The staff were very helpful and attentive and it was really relaxing . It is a real haven approx 3 hours from Dehli. We had probably the smallest room, which was fine. It had steep stairs to the entrance but a great " back door" via the bathroom into the roof terrace. It was fairly empty during our stay so the suggested buffet was not available but Ramesh, the restaurant manager was really helpful and happy to suggest and prepare dishes for us which actually suited us better. He was happy tp prepare a tikka dish when we asked. The grounds are beautiful but there is some work going on preparing for a pool which made it a little noisy at times. There is no WiFi, which is a little inconvenient as we didn't have roaming data on our phones ( from UK, so expensive) and we needed to plan the next bit of our Trip and research stuff. Whilst here we took the Bala Quila Jeep safari, which includes viewing the old Fort, a ride around the park and visit to a beautiful pink temple. Not sure you will ever see a tiger ( visit Sariska for that) but is was an enjoyable trip. Previous comments mention the unmade road to the hotel but it is now tarmaced and access is easy. You do have to walk up a sloping drive and some steps to access the Hotel but unless you are really infirm that should not be a problem. We would certainly vist again.

My daughter and I stayed here in early October 2023. We were treated so well by everyone of the staff. The chef and professionals in the kitchen especially, Ramesh, went above and beyond to help us be comfortable. They accommodated our unique dietary needs and spent time talking with us. My daughter was sick and they made sexual food to assist her We thank them all and recommend the fort highly! The fort is decorated beautifully in a Midwest and authentic rajestan style. The room was large and lovely!the villagers and surrounding countryside is perfect for walking and relaxing.

Dadhikar Fort It is a unique experience to visit Alwar and stay in a heritage hotel (situated about nine kilometres away from the city) in Dadhikar Fort on a hilltop, where the rooms are designed with Rajasthani Architecture, but with modern amenities like airconditioned rooms, to enjoy the beauty of nature and spend some relaxing time. Our two days stay with family allowed us to relish the scenery with the sound of peacocks, which can be seen moving around. The approach road to the hotel from city is rough and already in the process of bituminous road construction. Elderly people may find it a bit difficult in climbing up near the hotel, which has provided a stone bench to rest. The hospitality shown by Datar Singh Shekhawat and all the staff makes one ignore such discomfort. The restaurant provided well prepared cuisines. We had an opportunity to enjoy Rajasthan folk dance arranged by the hotel management for an hour in the courtyard on Hariyali Teej evening before dinner time. In this digital age, spending time from such entertainment other than TV, which is in the reception room of the hotel is a welcome change.
