Staying here for two nights and the room we have is excellent. Very nice and friendly, but also efficient staff, who really make you feel very welcome. Food is also good and plentiful choice, with buffet style breakfast,lunch and dinner. Would certainly recommend and it is not too far from entrance to Ranthambore national park and also close to railway...

a rustically elegant hotel: great staff, solid food but not as refined as other more urban Taj hotels, which was somewhat compensated by great local talents singing at every dinner. amazing numbers of birds (according to staff over 40 species residential birds, more with migratory species) and fruit bats. overall great experience, for the price, wish the food is better.

Lovely old hunting lodge. Some rooms are long distance from check-in - free golf cart transfers. Large rooms. Good HVAC. Free wifi. Very good breakfast buffet and dinners. Comfortable bed. There's a wedding ground next door that can get quite loud during a wedding - fireworks and bands. That quieted down by 11 PM. Lovely verandah to sit out.

We chose the hotel because it was close to the Tiger Reserve and it exceeded our expectations. Built as a hunting lodge for Maharajah of Jaipur in the 1930's it has a wonderful yesteryear style but with all modern facilities too. Our rooms were stunning. Two of us enjoyed a massage after the afternoon tiger safari, which was fab and...

We had booked a room here for 2 nights so we could go on safari in nearby Ranthambhore National Park. Entering the lodge is like stepping back in time. While it was previously a hunting lodge, and you are greeted by stuffed leopards and elephant heads on the wall (I could have done without these), the lodge is atmospheric, comfortable,...

WOW! Arrived late evening after a train journey from Agra. What a lovely welcome by the staff, was shown to our suite (room no 2) and was astounded at the style, the hotel was built in 1910 and is all Art Deco and retains all its original features. The suite was amazing along with the terrace. Arrived during Diwali which...

This is an awesome place with a lush green beautiful property and great friendly staff. We were a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids aged 10 and 7) spending 3 nights and loved the overall experience. While we were not at the safari, there is enough to do- be it a stroll around the property watching the birds...

A resort hotel with all of the trimmings, set on many acres of beautiful lawns and trees, with an organic garden. Luxurious accommodations, and beautiful settings. Excellent food, and convenient to viewing tigers in nearby Ranthambore Tiger reserve. Opportunity to take a camel-drawn rickshaw ride. Playground for children. A lovely outdoor pool. An on-premises spa. A terrific place to relax...
