I had the good fortune of staying at Ghanerao Castle last night. The atmosphere is idyllic, the staff warm and very hospitible, the food savory and the memories sweet. It is place that stills the mind, enlivens the heart, and leaves you refreshed. It is cared for by truly noble souls, who not only care for the land but also... More

It is about 15-20 minutes ride from Ranakpur Temple. Ghanerao Royal Castle is very very plush. Rooms are very well furnished and are very luxurious. Mr. Shakti Singh and his younger brother are taking very good care of their castle. This is a place I would recommend to some one who needs some rest from their daily busy life. Go... More

This hotel was seriously one of the rare unexpected finds of our Rajasthan trip, and exceeded all our expectations. From the outside, the hotel looks just like the photo (to us absolutely enticing), yet inside much has been renovated into a wonderful heritage hotel. Ghanerao does not purport to compete with 5* luxury hotels, and if this is what you... More

We had traveled to Kumbhalgarh from Udaipur and based on TripAdvisor reviews decided to choose Ghanerao Royal Castle in Ghanerao village. We had set out for Ghanerao from the magnificent Kumbhalgarh fort a bit late and hence navigating the way was tough. With the help of google map and locals knowledge we could reach the place by 8:30 in the... More

This castle is no ordinary castle. It is an extensive study in history. It's a travel back in time. It's the unique experience of sleeping like a king in a 500 year old castle. And the experience becomes greater when you have the Royal family welcoming you and taking you through their well-preserved heritage themselves. Do visit the Ghanerao Jungle... More

We reached the hotel after a long and a rather bad drive from Ahmedabad. The entry through the dense maze of buildings, arriving at a rather glum looking gate further dampened our spirits. As the gates opened, the Ghanerao Castle stunned us. We were not expecting something like that in such an unassuming setting. The palace or Rawla as the... More

I stayed at this hotel as part of a tour package so I can’t comment on price/value. My room (207) had a king-sized bed that was on the hard side. No covers except for a single sheet. Lighting was good. I tried the air conditioner but couldn’t get it to work (didn’t need it). The bathroom had a shower, a... More

What a sensational experience! I was travelling with a tour group through Rajastan when we stayed at the Royal Castle. I only wish we could have stayed for more than one night! From the main road, we meandered through the village until arriving at this slightly unsightly location. Someone else described it as the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and it... More

We had stayed in Ghanerao Royal castle for 4 nights. A amazing massive 400 year old Palace with beautifully done period rooms. Rooms allocated to us were 105 and 209. The rooms had almost all the modern facilities one can think of. However, rooms lack some basic things like intercom to call room service and tea & coffee maker. So,... More
