The place is fine for the price but I think it is overrated. We stayed here in Feb 2007 in the Royal Suite ($60). This and other sites make a big deal of a 'friendly and warm' staff and owners. Well, no-one talks to you. I did not even get a hello from Mr and Mrs Dicky although I ran into them several times. They were very warm on the phone and email, however.
The breakfast ok but not freshly cooked. We avoided the restaurant for lunch or dinner as it looked very empty and devoid of life.
The rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable.
They sent us their own driver (Mr Sethi) to pick up at the airport (Rs 350). I highly recommend Mr Sethi, we hired him for the next two days in Jaipur. He was very patient, speaks very good English and was a great guide as well. If possible book him in advance for your out of Jaipur trips.
He was unavailable for our Agra trip. So we hired a driver from Mr Chetan. Driver is Mr Kishore. Avoid this company and this driver ! They set us up with a 'free' guide at Taj Mahal who was only interested in steering us to his 'Star of India' diamond shop! Mr Kishore is also a terrible arrogant driver and we had near misses at several spots while driving. At one point he was so close to an oncoming vehicle that the vehicle knocked out the driver side mirror ! Very frightful.
