We stayed at the Gorbandhar for 2 nights in early August, and our family included 2 children.
We were greeted upon checking in with the refreshing cold towel that was just so perfect after a long drive across the desert. The cold towel thereafter gives way to the warm hospitality of the entire hotel staff, be it at the front desk or the restaurant or room service.
The property has stunning architecture, and is conveniently located close to the key attractions. Some rooms provide very nice views of the fort. There is a nice garden and a good size swimming pool. The cultural show in the evening in the lawn outside the restaurant featuring local artists is of high quality. The only drawback in this property is that there is no gym facility. Overall though, this property is a very good choice for families.
The rooms were modern, spacious and the finish was clean. The toiletries included, besides the normal items, an after shave gel (which I have never seen anywhere else). WiFi is complementary (thankfully!), though the service can be spotty at times.
The breakfast buffet spread is very good, even if not lavish. We ordered dinner a la carte and requested that our food be made with little oil. The food was healthy as per our requirement and yet tasty. We found the restaurant staff to be very accommodative of our requests (eg. French press coffee at breakfast in lieu of instant coffee) and provided great friendly service.
In summary, this is one of the finest properties that combines heritage and hospitality into a neat and memorable experience. I highly recommend it.
