We stayed just one night and regretted not having booked for more. This is a magnificent building with great architecture and features. We were lucky enough to get one of the tower suites, It's on two floors, and views across the city and it's our own private terrace, we felt like royalty. The dining room is breathtaking, as is the... More

This place is seriously special. Being woken by the noise of a peacock and leaving your room to go down to Breakfast and being greeted by such a beautiful building. Historic and ornate - it really is like staying in a museum. We had a fabulous room which stuck out over the pool - 319 I think. It was huge... More

This is a very elegant hotel. The rooms are very spacious. The breakfast room is very cosy and the food faboulous. The dinner is served on a beautiful garden, in atmospheric sourrandings. The service is of high quality.

An amazing place to stay and visit altogether with the city and its beautifully decorated houses. Rooms are huge so hopefully it won't be too cold when you stay. Bathroom is large and simply equipped. Your bed makes you feel like a Maharaja, so high so big :-) Dinner and breakfast could do better but hotel team is willing to... More

Tales of the unexpected. This was the most extraordinary hotel I've ever encountered - quirky, vast, with many shades of faded glory. The suite was most impressive but an uncomfy bed and a wailing wedding all night in the village provoked a wakeful night. Thunderstorms added to the drama. I sort of loved it. Worth the trip.

Stunning old place with bags of character. The room was large but the bed was the least comfortable we had on our trip. The bathroom was very large and the shower spread water all over the floor which made it like a skating rink. We were lucky to survive without breaking our hips. The restaurant served a very good buffet... More

We stayed for one night at the Castle Mandawa on our three week tour of Northern India. The castle occupies the high point in the town with superb views over the surrounding area and the hotel building itself is very impressive. Our room was quite spacious however it was cold and the small heater provided did not work which made... More

This was by far the worst of the hotels that we stayed in during a four week tour of India. I left with the impression that the staff hadn't been paid for some time as they were so surly and totally disinterested. The problems started from the moment of arrival. most hotels offer you a cold drink and a hotel... More

This was a lovely place to stay. The building was beautiful with an old world charm about it that made it quite unique. Our room was large and comfortable and definitely different. The staff were very attentive especially in the restaurant where they made a real fuss of our grandson who they made to feel very welcome. Nice food too.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Like many historic homes, Castle Mandawa is a curious mixture of the old and the new. Medieval turreted towers, palanquin-roofed balconies, blend with modern comforts in old-world rooms. Family portraits, antique cannons and arms add to the charm of this family-run resort where tradition still runs strong. Today, the world comes to this storybook town to see its colourful frescoes on every subject under the sun, that is, ranging from the religious to the erotic; from copies of popular English prints to witty social satire, rendered in the inimitable style of the local artist. And perhaps the best place to discover the legacy of Shekhawati is from the comfort of Castle Mandawa, a fortress, now converted into a luxurious heritage hotel. Explore Castle Mandawa at your own pace. Spend a leisurely hour over a drink in the colonial verandah that accommodates the bar, or relax in the cosy comfort of the Diwankhana, the formal drawing room decorated with family portraits and an array of antique armour. ... more   less
