We arrived after a relaxed drive from Jaipur at this castle. It is most impressive and the staff was very helpfull. They had lost our reservation but then placed us in a very nice room with spectacular bath.
We had been there in January, so temperatures at night where 0-5° C and the heating was somewhat provisoric. Nevertheless the blanket where warm.
The beds where very hard!!! Fortunately we love such hard beds, but still it was our limit. The comments in the guest book of people not liking hard beds where remarkable.
The dinner and the breakfast where impeccable. During the dinner there was a show with local musicians.
We had been impressed with the gold painter who has a shop in the hotel. We recommend his art and his personality led to a very enjoyable communication!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
