India and its offerings is a mystic land.. All visitors must understand that as long as they accept it for what it is, they will have the time of a lifetime.. If they expect it to be something otherwise, well, it surely will cause disappointment.. Perhaps same is the case with Ghanerao Royal Castle. A medieval castle from an estate... More

It is difficult to understand how some of the reviews can be the complete opposite of each other. I stayed at this hotel for one night with a tour group. The tour group as a whole was very unhappy with the standard of accommodation. The food was not up to standard, even of a modest hotel. The references to the... More

Those that visit Rajasthan quickly realize that it is a land full of rich history and tradition. Many palaces and Hawali's have been so commercialized that, while pleasant to visit, lack that comfortable feeling you get when you are at home or the house of a good friend. It is that comfortable feeling is what our family experienced at the... More

If you have ever seen the Marigold Hotel movie, you will want to stay here. Do not expect 5 star Hilton hotel quality, instead expect a property that has been in the same family for about 500 years. Yes, it is run down, but it has a heritage feel that is impossible to reproduce. The food is only average but... More

We stayed there one night as part of a tour of India and my only regret is that it couldn't have been longer. Our room was huge (three rooms) and we had a whole floor pretty much of reception area. It was really really special and the highlight of our trip. you can watch the sunset for the rooftop and... More

Our first room was shocking. We moved to another, where bed was skew, mattress very hard, toilet leaked onto wet room floor. Dinner was terrible, tasted worse than boarding school food. The dining room was dirty, staff unfriendly and poorly trained, and kitchen close would be closed by a health inspector! The hotel lacks a passionate owner/manager who can motivate... More

There is nothing better than a hotel where you spend all your hours in rather than most of the time out.... Specially if you are looking to detox and spend time with family and friends. The royal castle can make you an explorer within minutes of you being there. It's undiscovered and mystery surrounds this place. What's lovable about this... More

Jaw dropping beautiful rooms, all are different in size and style. Very atmospheric and cosy. Owner is a friendly amd helpful man. Food is bland but that is hugely overshadowed by the nostalgic old maharaja-era feel that this place has!

We spent one night in this beautiful but very very old residence. The place is really out of time, everything is so original and atypical. We had a very charming room, but it was so hot! Air conditioning works but it is just over the bed so impossible to sleep with. There is no TV in the room, lights are... More

Welcome to your own best marigold hotel!! Right here between Udaipur and Jodhpur. On arrival my wife refused to sleep here..yes, it does look a bit dodgy, but once inside it is really a gem of a place. Huge courtyards with tables and chairs, places to rest and read, or have beer after a long day of traveling. Our room... More
