“Disappointing”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

We stayed here as part of an organised tour around this area of India. The usual hotel - Castle Mandawa was closed for a wedding so this had been booked instead. Taking in the fact it is a heritage hotel and therefore a throw back to the Raj it was a strange mixture. Our room in an annexe was indeed very clean but we were concerned for our friend who was in a tiny, dark room overlooking the horses...and the flies! The bed was extremely hard and very uncomfortable. Our arrival was amazing with all the stops pulled out but that was somewhat spoiled as our group attempted to order lunch - some people waited well over an hour sitting in a very dingy dining room and breakfast was poor. However there was a nice buffet in the evening which was difficult to see due to lack on light but it tasted fine! An interesting experience but had probably been spoiled by the other hotels we had stayed in! Not sure some of the older staff really liked us being there but owner was friendly.

Room Tip: Not the annexes!

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!

A wonderful hotel in Nawalgarh, the property was very clean, friendly and nice. Everything was well kept.
Excellent and a peaceful location.The owners of the hotel and their staff offered outstanding hospitality. Delicious food , with a huge choice in there A-la-carte menu the food was simply ambrosius. Lovely lush green gardens with birds chirping makes it an amazing attraction for bird lovers like me and the stables of roopniwas is yet another attraction for horse lovers they even offer riding lessons to the non riders ,the horses are very well kept and the stable adds a rural charm to the place.The rooms are very cozy and clean with lovely ethnic furniture and huge clean bathrooms providing all the basic amenities .The swimming pool was amazing and clean as well.
In short i had the most amazing and wonderful experience of my life. No doubt out of all heritage hotels i visited in India, this was one of the nicest by far. I loved the place and would love to go again and again.

We enjoyed a pleasant couple of days in July at Roop Niwas Kothi, which is situated an easy 2.5 - 3 hrs drive from Jaipur, in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. It’s a beautifully converted family manse that offers true Rajasthani hospitality, right from the moment you arrive. We stayed in the suite, which is beautifully appointed with lovely views of the ground from the sitting room.

The day was spent exploring the small town of Nawalgarh, and admiring the beautiful frescoes and murals at some of the nearby havelis. Back at the hotel, we were treated to an enthralling sight in the early evening—to see the many horses that Roop Niwas Kothi own and use for their equestrian tours, come running from the stables to their feeding stalls. The rest of the evening passed just relaxing in the main verandah, listening to the birds and the peacocks, watching the sun go down. The food was delicious as well, with plenty to choose from as they offer quite a varied a la carte menu along with a buffet option.

We would definitely come back to this lovely spot in such a tranquil setting, and can recommend it for those looking for a taste of rural Rajasthan in a charming setting.

This place is so beautifully located, away from the hustle bustle of the Nawalgarh town that it is extremely peaceful. one thing which really attracts me to this place is the greenery, different species of birds and flying peacocks . The rooms are very cozy and nice, with the staff always smiling and gentle. the Indian and Rajasthani food is delicious.
