I thought this was a lovely heritage hotel, great character, beautiful frescoes, and a marvellous escape from the anonymity and uniformity of many hotels in India. I loved the roof-top restaurant, coal fires and wicker chairs. My only problem was with the shower. The water was freezing (it was December) and the boiler should have been turned ON when the room was reserved (that's what thermostats are for). There was neither a parapet around the shower area, nor any shower curtains, so basically the entire bathroom got drenched each time one needed cleansing. This is not pleasant even if one is solo, and even less if there are more than one person to a room.
- 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
