“Good Experience”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

We stayed at Dhillon's place for two night and had good experience. The rooms are neat and clean and the staff helpful. Location is little away from the main city but the place as such is nice and away from busy city. The tuk tuk rickshaw is a ripoff - bargain before getting in. Ideally should not charge more than Rs200 from Dhillon house to Umead Bhavan and drop at Mehangarh fort.

An impersonal and to the point service
Very reasonably priced and tucked away from the city centre by a couple of kms (easy to get an auto/rickshaw to travel to the Mehrangarh fort -highlight of our rajasthan trip)
The rooms and toilets are clean and basic- nothing fancy to write about-food served is simple home food to be prebooked and slightly on the higher side compared to the room charges.
NO problems whatsover-
similar to jaipur- please see take a reviewed driver from TA beforehand for longer distances for a taxi and not from the help there.

This is not a hotel; this is a homestay (they say Dhillon PG). The owner is an old gentleman, very friendly and fatherly (he is a retired professor). He comes and personally welcomes you.

Nice rooms, clean and nice facilities. There is a lawn and chairs. In all you feel homely.

The locality is superb. It is away from the city in a very peaceful Airforce area. If you have time, you just feel like going out and having a walk.

For food, they have less options (good for breakfast); but there is another restaurant (Ashok vatika - Veg) nearby where you'll get a lot of choices. I understand if you order in advance, they make you the food you want; but we didnt get a chance to try that.

The most important part about the place is their friendliness and their willingness to understand and help.

First of all I would like to understand what people call "homestay" or "value for money" etc.
This place according to me is just a paying guest accommodation which has been overly priced for tourists.
I will upload some photos as well.
The rooms are just made up of the owner's old house without the following amenities -
No wardrobes, No hot water on any of the days(inspite of repeated requests), old rooms with leaking taps, no cupboards and overly priced food.
The staff just hears and does nothing to resolve issues.
The towels(were supposed to be white) were so dirty that we felt uncomfortable to use it.
In this trip to Rajasthan we stayed in hotels in Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur and paid almost same price in all places.
However, among all places, this one in Jodhpur was the most miserable. So I wonder why is this called "value for money".

Dhillon house is a very peaceful place to stay. We stayed there for 2 days. It is located far from the main city in the air force area. The house is neat and clean. One can get home made food but have to order in advance. The owner of the house is very warm and friendly. Vicky the care taker is a helpful person. There is only one restaurant Ashok Vatika near the Dhillon house.

As it is far from the main city, you have to take auto for every place you would like to visit and they charge so much from the tourists (its best to bargain).

I stayed here for two days in December,2012. It was amazingly clean and spacious. The staff is very good and cordial. The lawn and clean structure of the building offers a wonderful peaceful experience. It is little outside the main city but you can hire an auto for Rs.100 and visit the market place and main city or the railway station. The auto charges around Rs.150 for fort. Anyways Jodhpur is a small city. If you are thinking whether to book or not? Then just book your stay here....

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and have good facility. You can book any room here.
