This is an excellent heritage hotel. The rooms and the ambiance is awesome. Food, rooms are good. The owner of the property is a gentleman and takes personal care of the guest. Highly recommended to those who want to live in a heritage hotel with peace and get good hospitality

Four of us visited for two nights as part of a 10 day Feast of India Tour (see separate review of company) of western Rajasthan. We agreed this was the best accommodation of our tour. A very comfortable, very well refurbished and maintained hotel with lovely grounds and swimming pool Unfortunately, it was quite cool, especially in the evenings, to... More

Dear Guests, Thank you for staying with us and for recommending us. I am deeply concerned and apologise for this situation where you did not have dinner at the hotel due to outdoor dining facilities in the cold weather. A few days in the month of January this year were unusually cold as a result the patio heaters were ineffective.... More

Came back after a recce and review same month last year. This time 8 of us - I was leading a mostly female group. Having been in slightly more 'upmarket' and expensive accommodation in the days before Jodhpur, I was slightly apprehensive that the others may not share my view of the charm of the property. Needn't have worried. It... More

As you enter rattan villas you start to relax as you come through the gardens. The hotel is charming as are the owners. We slept well in a very comfortable room and would return in a heartbeat. We ate outside which was a bit chilly but lovely with candles and lanterns. The food was good but we too missed our... More

We had a lovely two night stay at this hotel. The decor and style was authentic and it made you feel that you were experiencing how it was in the times of the Raj. The outdoor swimming pool was very clean and as we had good weather I managed to swim on both evenings before dinner. The evening meal served... More

Dear Guests, Thank you for staying with us. We are very pleased to know that the WI FI at the hotel was convenient and you enjoyed the dinner in the garden and a swim in the evening as unusually Jodhpur had become quite warm during mid February which is winter for us. Now the summer is finally setting in and... More

This is not a poor anaemic Indian interpretation of a Western hotel but rather an oasis of Rajistani hospitality that makes the lucky tourist feel like a family guest. After a truly disastrous experience at a supposedly Heritage hotel in Bikaner, it was with some trepidation that we entered the gates of Ratan Vilas. We knew from the first moment... More

This hotel is a great option tucked away off a busy street in Jodhpur. My husband and I had a lovely sleep and enjoyed the hotel's great food and even better service. I would suggest this hotel to anyone. It was also really nice to be away from the craziness and filth of the old town (it was a $2... More

After our disappointing hotel in Jaipur, I was slightly nervous about yet another "heritage" hotel but I needn't have worried. Friendly staff, a quaint but very well laid out room, "interesting" sunken bath and shower, a really pretty garden and pool area. Much relief all round. Breakfast was a little bit amateur but delicious, though the coffee was pretty dire... More

I stayed here for two nights, generally i would recommend this hotel, the rooms are spacious and clean, the hotel staff were very polite and attentive. Breakfast was very good, i recommend you try the saffron lassi. Dinner was not up to standard, but edible. I would stay here again.

This lovely period hotel was built in 1920 by Maharaj Ratan Singhji of Jodhpur who was a famous polo player. It was converted to a hotel by his grandson and great grandson and they have done a beautiful job in retaining the days of Raj feeling. Our bedroom was very clean and comfortable with water, tea/coffee making, fridge and safe.... More
