Have just returned from a 2 week trip to Rajasthan. The five nights that I spent in Bristows Haveli in Jodphur were fantastic. Its a beautiful, peaceful haven tucked away in a central location in the old city, a welcoming oasis with a pretty garden hidden from the manic hustle of the city. The ambience of the old Haveli is amazing, the interior decor perfect. The standard of cooking is great ,it's like being in your own home but with five star service. Also very good for advice on local sights and tours and for planing the rest of your trip, would highly recommend it

This must be the most exquisitely restored old haveli in the old blue city of Jodhpur. Each suite of rooms has its own special personality and all apartments overlook the beautiful, green, green garden. The only one in the old city.
Bristows Haveli was a life enhancing experience for me. Stepping out onto my own personal balcony and watching eagles soaring above the old fortified palace was magical.
Waking up to the slight hum of the city coming to life at the beginning of a new day and taking a beautifully prepared breakfast of fresh fruit, toast and coffee, all prepared by the amazing Ramu.
The staff were all helpful and wonderful to come home to after a busy day especially being handed a glass of ice-cold filtered water as soon as I walked through the door. (Actually it felt better than coming home!)
All this tranquil efficiency is made possible by the manager Phil Porter who makes your stay run like clockwork. His local knowledge and his knowledge about India in general, is amazing. Ask him about anything you want to know about antiques or textiles and Phil will point you in the right direction. He will share his encyclopaedic knowledge about where to go and where to buy things.
I'm already saving for my next trip and can't wait to stay here again!

This is a wonderful restored haveli right in the heart of the blue city in the shadow of the great fort. While there may not be all of the amenities of a modern hotel, Bristow's haveli compensates with a simple, clean and well managed environment, beautifully decorated and full of character. There cannot be many more authentic ways to experience Jodhpur's charming old city.

We had been wanting to visit India for many years, but not on the hackneyed tourist beat. Bristow's haveli was a perfect starting point - a haven of peace assembled with genuine antiques from the wrecks of three old havelis right in the centre of the medieval city of Jodhpur, under the shadow of the mountain-top ancient fort, and with its own secluded garden - the only one in the old city. The manager was discreet but full of local knowledge and advice, arranging anything we needed; the service was excellent and the food beautifully prepared to our wishes.
We could imagine ourselves spending the whole winter there given half a chance.

Room Tip: They are all delightful and uniquely different.

If you're going to go to Jodphur, stay here. After a rattling train journey we arrived at Johphur train station to be met by the calm and smiling Phil. He guided us through the crowd of taxi drivers and swept us away on a tuk tuk through the wide city streets to the maze of alleys in the old town. The noise and bustle ended at the door of Bristows - a door which led into a beautifully restored and cared for haveli. If you go to Jodphur, stay here. You're treated like a friend. Views from the roof of the Mehrangarh Fort perched high above with the rest of Jodphur spilling down the hill. Perfectly placed to explore the old city without encountering groups of visitors been herded around before they retreat to impersonal hotels outside of the city.
Cold, filtered drinking water always available - no worries about where all the plastic bottles go; coffee and tea appearing promptly whenever asked for; spacious, clean bathrooms; delicious breakfasts prepared by Ramu in the garden with a lawn! Phil's in-depth knowledge of Jodphur is priceless - places to eat, markets to visit, customs and history. When you walk through the old town he is greeted constantly by the locals - surely a good indication of warmth, respect and acceptance. We left to explore elsewhere but then returned, grateful for the cleanliness and comfort of Bristows. No where else we visited was equal to Bristows. It's a very special place.
