Rajasthan is a spectacular part of India. On the outside Castle Mandawa is very impressive, striking architecture, gardens and a beautiful pool. However when you get into your rooms standards start to slide. We had an enormous room with window seats, columns and large bathroom but it was basic. It was dusty (but not dirty) and in need of a refurb. It’s not enough to rest on being a ‘heritage hotel’. If the rooms can be brought up to the standard of the outside this hotel will be outstanding. The food was in general mediocre, the evening meal in the gardens was supported by lovely staff, the building lit up looks fabulous however it was so dark I’ve no idea what I ate and it was all luke warm. Perhaps we were unfortunate. All in all no regrets however we wouldn’t stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Like many historic homes, Castle Mandawa is a curious mixture of the old and the new. Medieval turreted towers, palanquin-roofed balconies, blend with modern comforts in old-world rooms. Family portraits, antique cannons and arms add to the charm of this family-run resort where tradition still runs strong. Today, the world comes to this storybook town to see its colourful frescoes on every subject under the sun, that is, ranging from the religious to the erotic; from copies of popular English prints to witty social satire, rendered in the inimitable style of the local artist. And perhaps the best place to discover the legacy of Shekhawati is from the comfort of Castle Mandawa, a fortress, now converted into a luxurious heritage hotel. Explore Castle Mandawa at your own pace. Spend a leisurely hour over a drink in the colonial verandah that accommodates the bar, or relax in the cosy comfort of the Diwankhana, the formal drawing room decorated with family portraits and an array of antique armour. ... more less
