We stayed at Shamnath Villa for a total of 4 nights, returning after our initial booking when we came back from a two week long trip through Rajasthan.
The rooms are spacious and clean; the only improvement I could think of being maybe the bathrooms, some of which could use a refresh. The beds were comfy and were made up daily. Breakfast was delicious and was served in the lovely common areas where we met other guests from all walks of life; I also very much appreciated that the time for breakfast was flexible- the helpful staff always accommodating the guests' needs. The whole place is very quiet as set back from the road (+ secured gate) and it was nice to be able to sit on the balcony facing the gardens.
However, what really makes Shamnath Villa stand out is the lovely hostess. Meeting Mrs. Shamnath has been a highlight of my trip to India, which could at times be overwhelming. She was always available for questions and was warm and welcoming to all her guests.
Next to that, Mrs. Shamnath went out of her way to ensure we picked a reputable travel agent for our trip to Rajasthan (after we almost fell for a scam),personally calling him and even helping to negotiate the price and good hotels. She also checked on the car and driver when he came to pick us up and armed us with lots of tips for Rajasthan. We had a fantastic time feeling safe and comfortable thanks to Mrs. Shamnath.
This place sees a lot of repeat visitors and I would certainly return when back in India.
