This was the 2nd hotel we stayed at on the same day in Sariska. We were able to get the booking immediately without any fuss...maybe because there were so many empty rooms there. The only other guests were a group of school children...who seemed to be around 10 year old.
The 1st room given was a deluxe room, much larger than the usual hotel rooms that we are used to. It had an antique TV, dirty bathroom, broken taps, no water, dirty bathtub. Later on, after my wife's discussion at reception, we were upgraded to a suite.
Suite had cigarette smoke smell and a peculiar smell that we can associate with improper drainage in the bathroom. We decided there to stay only for one night instead of two that we had planned. This room was big but had the usual issues...apart from smell, bathroom was not cleaned, the claw foot tub was stained, taps were broken and overall cleanliness was an issue. A look at the arms of the sofa was enough to decide that sofa is not to be sat on.
Restaurant is a low ceiling unit and was equally dirty along with the worst chairs that I had seen...the grime was everywhere. Breakfast was tasteless. When we were having coffee after the breakfast, one of the so called waiter literally tried to push the chair on which wife was sitting because he had to go to the other side...no request to move aside, just try to push the chair and person away....you get the gist.
Swimming pool was extremely dirty, with water insects visible at least a foot under the water. Per the staff, swimming pool is cleaned once in a quarter.
Food overall is very average.
Now the reason why things were so bad...untrained staff, practically zero supervision on quality.
Not a place that I will recommend to anyone. Though it is a beautiful property but has gone to ruins now...with peeling paints, stains, dirt, zero hygiene, bad food, broken taps, wasps all over etc.
Avoid this place, it is not worth the money and experience.
