A former Bramin's house, Bristow's is nestled in Jodhpur's old town and is just a short walk from the Fort, of which is enjoys magnificent rooftop views. The house has been beautifully restored, original features and room sizes preserved and is filled with antiques and Indian items of interest. My suite was gorgeous and I slept in a lovely antique bed. In winter it's chilly (the nature of the haveli makes it pretty breezy) so wrap up warm. Hot water bottles, provided, help. Water is beautifully hot but to help preserve resources, the bathrooms have just a hand held shower attachment. The bathroom floors are very slippery so they might benefit from some kind of anti slip mat. Phil, the host, is great. Considerate, knowledgeable and always on hand to ensure a comfortable stay. He's also good at arranging reasonably priced taxis. The breakfasts were delicious and he has a great husband and wife team doing dinners too. The garden must be gorgeous in summer- a treat getting this in the crowded old town. All in all a very happy (if nippy) stay in this beautiful town.
