“magical place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful stay here as part of an intrepid tour. It's a bit out of the way in rural Rajasthan but that's part of its charm. We did score one of the best rooms but they all had their own quirky charm. We ate outside under the stars and sat chatting around a brazier after. Views from the fort were fabulous - it's on a rocky hilltop.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

Like others we visited Fort Madhogarh as part of an Intrepid tour. It is a unique place to stay. Well worth a visit, but remote and difficult to find for the independent traveller. The rooms are all individual and all have their own charm. A place to remember.

I visited Fort Madhogarh as part of an Intrepid Classic Rajasthan trip in November 2013, and for me it was a highlight. It is by no means a 5-star hotel; do not go there expecting luxury, you will be disappointed. Also be aware that it's in a rural village setting, off the beaten track (for me, this is part of the charm). It is quirky and unique, peaceful and the staff are wonderful. The meals were great. The village walk was lots of fun and it was great meeting the locals. As suggested by a previous reviewer, the best thing to give the children is photos - post them back to the hotel or to Intrepid to give out. Each room is different. I had fans, and a hot water heater in the bathroom. We did lose power for some time, but really I felt that just added to the ambience! We had a great dress up dinner organised by our group leader Ajay Singh. Being woken at 5am by prayer call, and taking in sunrise and breakfast from the roof, was magical.

The fort looks amazing and the structure can be seen from far, the entry looks very grand but felt great when I was greeted by the locals. The rooms are all of different sizes and structure, it was very much different wat i thought and the way it appeared in the website. The food quality and the service is great i wish if the climate would have been a bit cooler it would have helped me to explore the village more.

We stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour. It was a bit like a real life best exotic marigold hotel. It was bliss after the chaos of delhi and agra and we enjoyed exploring all the different rooms. We did a fantastic village walk and purchased some kites which we flew off the fort turret. I highly recommend doing this, even though the locals will ruthlessly cut you down and the children will race to grab your kite! The rooms are basic and there is no running hot water. We bathed Indian style, using a bucket. It was a little bit spooky in the middle of the night with no power and the bed was incredibly hard, but overall it was a lovely experience.

this was my favourite place of residence during the intrepid tour i was on . Although it was the most basic place we stayed the fort made up for it in terms of experience due to the locatation , the wonderfull staff and the fact that we were there for Holi festival which was magical as we visited the town below and had a colourfull time.

i stayed here as part of a trip with intrepid and i have to say this is one of my favorites places we stayed in. a pleasant surprise after the hustle and bustle of delhi and agra,

the rooms are very basic but comfortable. i only had a fan in my room which may not be enough if you are there during the summer months and its baking hot! as you wonder round the fort enjoying the peace, the views are magnificent. we took a walk around the village just below the fort and the people were so welcoming, the children excited to see you and desperate to have a photo with you.

the buffet meals were delicious and there was plenty of it.
one thing i highly recommend during a stay here is getting up early and watch the sunrise from the roof. its amazing.
a wonderful stay in beautiful surroundings. i highly recommend a stay here even if its only 1 night.
