Stayed here with my sister. The location is slightly bizarre in that you have to head along unmade roads to get to there, but once inside it is was truly palatial. The building dates back to 1734 but has only been a hotel for about 15 years. The whole palace complex just oozes character with a traditional bar decked out like an officers' mess, a beautiful restaurant with excellent and attentive service, and helpful people at the reception desk.

We could have stayed here much longer - it was an oasis of calm for us on what was a frenetic trip. We only stayed here as our original booking was changed by the tour company when they learnt the other hotel was hosting a major Indian wedding (which we could hear even though it was two or three miles away!).

We had time between jeep safaris in the National Park to stroll around the hotel, enjoy the ambience and marvel at the architecture and character of the building.

Highly recommended!

Based on the photos of this hotel we were really looking forward to our stay here, but unfortunately we were disappointed and we didn’t really enjoy our time at the hotel. It is a beautiful building, but unfortunately this hotel seemed to be the classic ‘all style but no substance.’ The basics were not there - we thought that the staff were unhelpful and rude, and the food was pretty poor at breakfast, lunch and dinner - hardly any choice at all! The staff also expected you to pay for water when dining, but they would give you a couple of bottles of water in your room which meant that pretty much everyone at dinner was bringing their own water from their room... which is a bit ridiculous. Our shower barely had any hot water and the hairdryer in our room was essentially broken. The WiFi does not work in any of the rooms and only seemed to work in the reception area - it didn’t even work in the dining area. Ranthambhore National Park is great and we really enjoyed our three game drives - we would advise if visiting to perhaps look at staying in one of the other hotels in Ranthambhore.

One night stay during visit to Game Sanctuary. Relatively new property but in a traditional haveli design. Rooms modern but full of period touches from the Raj. Interesting bar, more like a period club. Very enjoyable stay.

What a delight!! We were staying at a different hotel but decided to go to this place for lunch. There is only buffet meal and no alacarte so be prepared for that. The food was good especially the saagchicken and creamy mushrooms and lentils pakoda!! The apple cinnamon cake topped the buffet!!But the icing on the cake is the service. Totally impeccable and helpful!! The staff was so nice and it was a pleasure to be served by them. Had a lovely lunch there.

Let me start by saying I have never written a negative review on TripAdvisor and often given establishments the benefit of the doubt. However, this is simply a very poor hotel. It looks amazing in the pictures and is a stunning building, but as a hotel it is pretty impractical. We stayed here late December/early January. The wifi doesn’t work properly throughout most of the hotel, there is no TV (not too bothered about that) but there also isn’t adequate hot water in your room for a shower for most of the day. Worst of all, half the staff were rude and the other half utterly useless. The man on reception was one of the rudest people I have encountered in a hotel, and his counterpart in the restaurant was just as rude. I’m delighted to never have to see either of them again. Almost all of the hotel staff we met in India were nothing short of delightful, but the staff here were the worst of any hotel I have stayed in. Dinner is average at best and service is pretty awful. The New Years Gala was just an excuse to try and sell lots of drinks and held outside in the freezing cold. You have to bring your own bottled water to dinner as they try and charge you for this too. The room was fine and the only plus side was the very comfy bed. This was by far the worst hotel we stayed at in India and there are many better options in Ranthambore. If they invested in this hotel and had adequate staff it could be outstanding, but it’s been neglected and as such is pretty poor. Save yourself the disappointment (and anger at staff) that we felt and stay somewhere else.
