Have just spent two weeks at Bristow's Havelli in Jodhpur Rajasthan.Jodhpur also known as 'the Blue City' on account of the whole city stonework being washed in a lovely blue. It is, of course' dominated by the impressive and famous Red Fort which contributes to a stunning skyline. However, what impressed me most about my stay in India was the accommodation at Bristow's Havelli. This mini palace in the heart of this dynamic and bustling city has to be seen and experienced to believe. The whole place has been fully and sympathetically restored using traditional and established Indian stone masons and carpenters. all the furniture an d fittings are authentic colonial Indian. It has a paradise of a garden full of unique birds and butterflies. Bananas and mangos were plucked from the trees in the shaded courtyard to complete my breakfast. There is a shaded roof terrace too where I enjoyed reading during some of the day and where I watched the sights of the city in the evening times. The location is perfect as it is in the city but because of it's secluded design appears as a tranquil haven and yet to step out of it's impressive entrance is to step into the hum and life that is India. I defy anyone to find a better location with equivalent accommodation and such helpful staff at such an affordable price! I can unreservedly recommend this establishment to anybody who wants authentic India with superb accommodation in the heart of this magic city. Pete MacDonald, Devon, England.
