My wife & I stayed at the Mandir Palace Sept 2011 for 3 nights & had a great time. I had called ahead and negotiated a very good price for one of its smaller rooms in the old Palace which was very clean and well maintained. We found the staff to be extremely helpful both across the hotel & at the hotel reception. Fused bulbs were immediately replaced without any hassle!
There was no pressure to take any of the hotel's trips or to eat its restaurants. We did have eat both dinner & breakfast which were very good with equally attentive service. For breakfast we just ordered what we wanted rather than have the recommended buffet! The views of the Fort were tremendous & it would have nice to have dined on the roof area but it was a bit too windy for that for the nights we stayed. Snacks at the pool were good too but order well in advance as they do take some time to appear! Still at least they are all freshly cooked!
The swimming pool was simply glorious and I used it both early mornings & late afternoons. Towels were provided though there could have been a few more loungers. It was very clean and simply marvellous to relax in after the heat & dust of Jaisalmer.
The hotel was very centrally placed with easy access to the local open market, the fort [a not too long or ardous walk if you wanted to] and had several eating places within walking distance. I had checked out some of the other hotels in Jaisalmer listed in Lonely Planet but they were poor compared to the Mandir Palace & many had construction works in progress or had open sewers in their street................none were as conventiently sited at the Madir Palace.
