The 1st Gate Home Fusion was by far the best run hotel in 5 weeks of travel in India. We were accommodated in room 8, which had a perfect view of the fort from the window. The rooms were clean and spacious. Decor in rooms was very minimalist. Could have done with a splash of colour on the walls. A large rug or fabric hanging on the wall would have added some ambiance. There were many in the markets, so it would be nice to see some local work hanging in the rooms. Footsteps and talking in the hallway outside was noisy at night, so a long runner on the floor would have absorbed some of the noise and given a more sophisticated feel. Just a thought.
Breakfast in the downstairs dining room was made to order. Croissants and pastries were an unexpected addition. Many courses served separately. Very nice food.
The rooftop restaurant was well used by us. Watching the sun rise at dawn over the rooftops, while wrapped in a blanket and served the first morning cup of freshly made cappuccino and biscuits by Ali was a magic experience. Later in the day the rooftop restaurant once again provided a nice place to sit to catch up on emails or read a book and eat a delicious lunch. You could lie on a day bed and catch a few rays of winter sun or sit at tables under the pergola. It was quite cold at night, so a brazier was lit beside each table and blankets were draped around the shoulders of patrons. Food in the evening was tasty, fresh and a good size serving. Italian dishes were available.
The location and hospitality were exceptional. Staff were attentive and friendly. You MUST stay here while visiting Jaisalmer.
