“Just Like staying Home”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

The hotel is a home away from home. The rooms are neat, clean and tidy. The food is made to order and hence cannot go wrong. The service is personalised and courtieous. The traveller is not disturbed by extras and the stay is always a big relaxation.

General's Retreat is a home away from home. The warmth of the owners and staff is too good. No 5 star trappings but a great place to relax and unwind. We spent 2 days recently and will surely come back again. Very close to the walled city and had tough time holding the girls back from shopping non stop.

Special thanks to Mandvi and will surely visit the highly recommended Shahpura Bagh next time.

Our daughter, who had stayed there earlier on the recommendation of an Indian friend, was keen that we stay at Generals Retreat on our visit to Jaipur. It reminded her of our old family home in Lahore. We found the place comfortable, and the owners extremely helpful, warm and welcoming- an extended family. Centrally located,the prices are reasonable,the meals well-planned and delicious.It was particularly special for us as visiting Pakistanis because it gave us an opportunity for interaction/ exposure to a lovely Indian family which we would never get if we had stayed at a regular hotel! We have come back with a host of memories.. so thank you Generals retreat!

I spent two nights at The General's Retreat in February. Though perhaps ten minutes by car from the walled city of Jaipur, it is a very pleasant place to stay and worth finding. My room was large, clean, and comfortable, as was the bathroom. The staff were warm and welcoming. When my laptop could not pick up a wireless connection in my room, they let me use the office computer to check and send emails, at no charge. Two vegetarian dinners and two breakfasts were excellent and very reasonably priced (breakfast is included with the room). I would certainly stay there again.

I stayed at this guest house on 10th and 11th of March 2012. Had done the booking a week earlier and had got a promot email confirmation regarding the same.

I had reached on 10th March at about 10:30am. Ketki, the Owner welcomed me into their guest house. She was very warm and hospitable. I was alloted room number 2 on the 1st floor. I understand that there are around 10 rooms in the guest house with about 4-5 rooms on the 1st floor.

My room was very well lit with bright sunlight coming through semi-transparent curtains. And it looked even better with bright colored room upholstrey (including a silk bed cover). The room had a 21inch TV with DTH, cushioned chairs, big mirrors, cupboard and a safe deposit box. It was well decorated with pictures and paintings. The bathroom was clean, but could have been more cleaner. It was just about ok sized. On the 1st day afternoon, the bathroom started smelling badly. I had to keep the door closed all the time. Had informed the attendant (Darshan) at night, he did something next day morning to get rid of the smell, but it was back again on 2nd day afternoon. I did not bother much about changing rooms since I was spending most of my time outside attending marriages. Ketki - if you are reading this, please do something about the bathroom.

You may note that the other rooms on the 1st floor are much bigger, and has even bigger bathrooms. I did check them out while being cleaned, and they seemed really nice.

The sit out area on the 1st floor is beautiful. With pootted plants all around, the lawn in front, and trees, it was as if I was living with nature. The lawn in front was a beautiful place to sit and relax.

I am not sure about the food as I did not have it. Am sure it would be homely.

The Owner is very nice. She suggested some good places to eat out in Jaipur. They have two dogs and a cute looking cat. They play in the lawn most of the time. The Owner lives on the ground floor. Overall, its completely separate from the Owner's area.

The guest house has ample parking space. No issues in drving down.

Overall, I loved staying at this place. Why pay more and stay in some hotel which does not have personalised service. This place is warm, comfortable, well priced and centrally located. I will highly recommend this place to everyone.

Room Tip: Choose 1st floor room, other than Room No. 2. Though not sure about the room along side the sitout a...
