This hotel is a beautiful place to stay, but be aware of wedding parties. The day we arrived, a lot of guests for a wedding arrived too. There was a red carpet and music and dancing and also drinks for them. In any hotel in India we have been welcomed with a drink, but this time the drinks were only offered at the wedding-guests. The receptionist, allthough correct was not very friendly. We got a room high in the castle. A beautiful room, but no complimentary bottle of water, as in most hotels. The wedding was nice to see but at the time we wanted to go to bed the noise in our room was horrible. The party was just below our room and the music boxes were on full power.
They could not tell us untill which time the party was going on but offered us a room in another part of the hotel. Less comfortable, but good enough and with earplugs we managed to fall asleep.
Next day I told the receptionist (the same as on our arrival) I was not happy with the lack of the welcome drink and complimentary bottle of water in the room. Then he gave me the voucher and his only answer was: “Sign please!”
All the other members of the staff were really friendly, but the rude behaviour of this man spoiled a lot.
- 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
