Imagine owning the most enormous magnificent stately pile, slightly off the beaten track, but not having the money to turn it into a posh high class hotel. This really is an intrepid traveller's gain. What's happened with this fantastic fort palace is that just 12 rooms are open to visitors, hot water has to be brought to your room in a bucket (because this place is so huge that they can't afford to put in the necessary plumbing) and you dine with the family. But what an experience! A real dip into the past, with kindly hospitality and the pleasure of experiencing the real thing - no frills. It's a peek into the grandeur and glamour (if now faded and dusty) of how Rajasthani princes used to live! If you don't mind roughing it just slightly, don't give this experience a miss!
