I highly recommend this wonderful Haveli. It's beautiful and peaceful. We stayed there for 2 weeks and I have to say that Phil couldn't have done any more for us. He's a wonderful host who spoke to us every day checking what we were going to do and if we wanted him to organise any trips and giving us advice... More

My female friend and I stayed for 2 nights on the 2nd floor suite. It was beautiful and peaceful. A rare quiet spot in the noisy city. It was very clean and spacious. A lot of open space for reading and relaxing. Fantastic location. The room was a bit dark and many reviewers had pointed out the shower issue. Phil... More

I thoroughly recommend Bristows. It is a very good place to stay. Pros: it is very beautiful indeed. The garden is lush and magical. You are right in the middle of the old town and yet you feel as if you are a million miles from the usual, wonderful, noisy chaos that is an Indian city. The house is full... More

I cannot recommend this haveli highly enough. It is the most beautifully restored and furnished house with a lovely garden and roof terrace with fabulous views over Jodphur. A real oasis of beauty and peace in the heart of a bustling city. Phil the manager and the staff could not be more helpful and pleasant. Do try to eat here,... More

I'm not sure where to start with this homestay style, restored haveli in the old town of Jodhpur. It was simply amazing. I guess it is important to start with what it is not - it is not a hotel and it is not a restaurant. But it is an ongoing restoration project staffed by three very dedicated individuals who... More

A beautifully restored haveli tucked right into the middle of old Jodhpur. It has a real homely sense and is packed full of character, with statues and artifacts everywhere. Our rooms had everything they needed (including hot water bottles to combat the cold) and tea/ coffee was available all day and included in the price. The little garden and rooftop... More

You may well wonder where you're going if you arrive nearby by tuk tuk and follow Phil the rest of the way down tiny lanes and alleyways, but you turn into an old haveli with thick stone walls which turns out to be a small oasis. It's set at the foot of the hill on which the fort is built... More

My wife and I stayed here in February 2013. We made reservations on emails. Phil, a British national, who manages this place was very prompt (all responses within 24 hours) and bookings were made with minimum fuss. We reached Jodhpur at 6am, unfortunately, hadn't intimated Phil in advance of our plans. We also had a friend with us who was... More
