We stayed In the cheaper rooms that look out on the the courtyard. Paid 500R a night which seemed pretty reasonable for what we received. A fairly large room, en suite, hot water. The room wasn't anything to write home about but had a nice balcony and comfortable bed, clean sheets etc.
Now to our only real complaint which was the awful bathroom. It was as if they had built it from cardboard as an afterthought and basically every time you showered your dirty water didn't really drain it just went around the corner and made a big puddle around the toilet. We are used to wet rooms but this was a little bit too much. The walls of the bathroom also didn't feel all that secure, although a lock on the outside of the toilet door. Really the shower and the toilet just needed to be the other way round. Our only gripe and the view from the restaurant was just so damn good that we only have the heart to knock off a star for that minor gripe.
The staff here are also lovely, not pushy with tours at all. We didn't take anything as we'd spent ages already in Bikaner doing camel treks, village tours and the like. Not a problem. Also looked after our bags whilst we waited for the train on check out day.
A great stay in an unbeatable position. If i returned I'd probably stump up the cash for the fort side rooms, they looked amazing!
