The hotel is a beautifully restored red sandstone haveli. Our room was enormous, furnished in reproduction pieces appropriate to the building.....but the pillows and mattress were rock hard and the room was quite cold. Smell of cow dung wafted in from the street through the bathroom window ...we kept the door shut to keep out the offending odour from our room.
The vegetarian buffet dinner was dished out by one of the staff. (not a help yourself buffet). Not a large choice but the flavours were exquisite: quite the best veggi food I have had in India. Chopped carrots with grated coconut was delicious.
The amateurish staff were helpful and showed willing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated inside the walled city of Bikaner is Bhanwar Niwas, the grandest of the famed havelis belonging to the Rampuria family. Bhanwar Niwas is a tribute and testimony to the skill and craftsmanship of the artisans of Bikaner. Completed in 1927 for Bhanwarlalji Rampuria, heir to a textile and real estate fortune, Bhanwar Niwas reflects the fashionable tastes of the 1920's, a taste for formal and well ordered luxury with modern conveniences of the time. The architecture of the haveli is a fascinating mix of Indian and European styles. On the ground floor are the public rooms including the Blue Drawing Room and the Little Drawing Room. For your palate we serve delectable vegetarian food in the magnificent Dining Hall. ... more less
