Although we checked into the adjoining Roop Vilas Palace - that is the 'now-disenchanted, sublet to Club Mahindra' half of the original haveli... we strayed into the main road facing portion - the Roop Niwas Kothi premises, late at night looking for a restaurant option... and decided the Kothi is the definitive stay option for the next trip.
We were pleasantly surprised to discover it had a lovely porch... a welcome relief after the closed confined space of the restaurant at Roop Vilas. A warm conversation with the owner's daughter in the homely Roop Niwas Kothi lounge, we decided to dine there, learnt a bit about the family and decided to return for breakfast, also to see their stables and stud farm... thats where we were the next morning... I loved the horses... we met the owner there, and whilst he attended to his passion, he was gracious enough to spend time with us - patiently answering my queries, amidst the occasional stern instruction to a stable hand. We saw the arena, paddock and stud farm. They have short training programs for the Greens; and for the Veterans - the full-fledged cross-country safaris. No horsing around here for sure...
The Roop Vilas Palace... errrr..... well, a far cry from whats projected... they seemed the ones horsing around, sans the horse!!! No pun intended!
