“Good value. Very homely.”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Our party of three foreigners and one Indian stayed here in January 2013. Great value clean and simple rooms situated around a neat well kept garden. Nice hot showers available at any time. The family are very welcoming and always obliging. Good home cooked food. Walking distance to the national park. Won't stay anywhere else if I come back to Bharatpur.

Agra and Fatehpur Sikri are hard work - bad hotels, lots of touts and 'guides' and hassle - and by the time I got to Bharatpur I really needed to relax.

Jungle Lodge was exactly the right place to pick. Large and scrupulously clean room, a verandah outside, and green gardens, a friendly little dog and lovely hosts. There's a good selection of food, and internet access is available. I spent two happy days there, having intended just to be 'passing through'.

The Lodge is also well located - about half a km from the Keoladeo nature reserve, and close to the 'park' bus stand, but off the main road in a quieter area.

It is a very nice place with a lovely garden. Rooms are clean with attach toilet with hot water every time . This place runs by a lovely and friendly family. The owner Ashok is a very nice person and he is a naturalist also. He knows many birds and is a very good guide also to tell us about many things. His wife Indu is a very good food maker. The food is delecious here.
In the night , they also arrange campfire during the cold and its very nice when we sit around the campfire and talk each other.

This hotel is near the bird sanctuary. So you can also walk there. The rooms are at a budget price. so I suggest everyone just check this place when you will go to Bharatpur. you it is a home far from home.

Room Tip: the rooms which are upstairs are ver goos and the rooms which are on the right side are very good an...

Great value! Rooms are clean and nice, beautiful quiet garden and a nice restaurant. Wifi that actually works and is fast, something that for us has been very rare at low budget guesthouses. The atmosphere is friendly and helpful.
We were planning to stay here for 1 night and then move on to Agra, but the bus is only one hour so we could not se any point in changing location. Easy to get to Fatehpur Sikri aswell. Just be careful at the bus to Agra, touts will get on and tell you it is the last stop when its NOT. They just want to sell you overcharged rickshaw rides and hotels.

Definitley recommended, and Bharatpur is a far nicer town than Agra, with friendly people and a calm athmosphere. The food is the only thing at this place that is not top notch, but its nice for the price and the breakfast is definitley alright.

Excellent value guesthouse very close to Keoladeo park. Ashok the owner is really friendly and came and sat with me during my dinner or whenever I was about on the terrace, he knows loads about birds, travel and India.
The guesthouse has a very sociable and safe feel to it and I felt very welcome. Ashok's wife is an excellent cook and made me some wonderful meals to order. The rooms look out onto a peaceful garden and I would have been happy to sit under the terrace in the shade all day!

They also have the cutest white little dog who's friendly and worth a visit on his own. Highly recommended!
Thank you Ashok!

this place is perfect for a visit to the bid park or the truly interesting city of Bharatpur!

what we liked:
- beautiful green garden
- the bed/couch on the veranda
- good location to bus drop off and park entrance (walking distance)
- the evenings by the fireplace (host lights up a fire - when it is cold)
- value is awesome! paid only 400 for a double!

please be aware, that this place has now inside eating area. we had bad luck with the weather, it got really really cold in the evenings and we had not enough warm clothes...

Room Tip: try to get a room on the second floor with access to the lovely veranda!

Excellent price/quality rate. The rooms are simple, with a standard Indian shower with a boiler. So if there's electricity, you'll have hot water. The family is really great, the owner tells you good stories while you're enjoying his wives food and an ice cold beer. Don't expect high standard cooking, but it's good, fresh food. Don't leave without trying the cheese omelet!!!

They have rooms for 400 or 500 rps. Room on photo is a 500 room. They have only 8 rooms, so if you want to be sure of a room, just call a day or so ahead.
If you arrive by bus, ask the driver if he can drop you at the busstop near the keoladeo entrance, from there it's only a couple off minutes walk.
