“A garden oasis”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Whilst travelling in Rajasthan for 2 weeks this was a unique experience to find such a lovely quiet place a short way from the hustle and bustle of a major city - in this case jodhpur. The quest house offers exceptional value re the rooms and the lovely garden and also has a good restaurant. If like me you are travelling on a budget then I don't believe you will better thiis place.

Mandore Guest House is the first spot we chose to re-visit in India because of what it represents. The guest house offers cosy hospitality, it’s a charming leafy haven tucked away down a quiet alley, a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Jodhpur city. The staff are very attentive and the food in the restaurant is delicious. But a big attraction for us during the second visit was a chance for our family of five to experience Indian culture by volunteering in one of the social development programs the Gehlot family have run for many years.
We left Mandore with vivid lifelong memories, hopefully having provided some benefit to the children at the school where we were so enthusiastically welcomed! We want to return to this wonderful place soon.

Not the most central location but absolutely worth the trip. Feels more like a resort, with nice little huts or rooms in single-story houses. From the outside it looks somewhat old-fashioned, but inside the rooms are quite modern and meet Western standards.
The garden is especially beautiful at night and the staff is very helpful. There is, however, only a small park around the corner (the old capitol, with temples, ruins and monkeys, quite nice). For everything else you will need a cab.

My two daughters (in their 20s) and I stayed here for 4 days during the last week of February, and had a wonderful time. What first attracted me to Mandore Guest House was the garden setting and traditionally shaped rooms in addition to the volunteer outreach work in the community that the hosts offer to guests. We didn't have time to do the volunteer work on this trip, but felt we had a very personal experience staying at the Mandore Guest House and would love to go back.
The rooms surround a garden carefully planted with many different types of trees found in India, amidst which are nestled swings, tables and chairs, and artwork traditional to the region. You could easily rest here for as long as you'd like, or you can use it as a hopping off point into town, or the villages farther outside of town. The young staff was very bright, friendly and accommodating but gave us lots of private space. Sanjay, our host, had very good advice and suggestions and was extremely helpful in figuring out both highlights, and what we could manageably do in a day. We took a half day trip with him to the Bishnoi villages which was great. He gave us an opportunity to interact with families there and to get a sense of how they live. An unexpected bonus here was the restaurant - the food was delicious - including the Rajasthani roti, the uppma, the chopped egg curry, the okra curry and more. The restaurant kitchen seemed to be always available - When we arrived the first day at the off hour of 3 in the afternoon, they were very willing to prepare us a meal.

The Mandor guest house is the favorite place I have stayed in India and I have been there 3 times! it's a haven of peaceful relaxation away from the constant craziness of India. The staff is lovely and they always seem happy and never pester you for tips. The rooms are amazing and very romantic. At first I was worried it was a bit out of town but the location is great and it's easy to grab a rickshaw there. The hotel has a beautiful garden surrounding it and there is a huge garden park with temples right down the road. I read the reviews before staying here and thought they where great but my expectations were exceeded apron arrival. The family that owns it is very nice and they do great things for the villages around there. They have a nice volunteer program where you can go help out at the village schools. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to volunteer but the owners son offered to take us around to the schools and villages. It was so interesting to see the non touristy, authentic side of India. The children at the schools where so adorable and welcoming! I really can't express how WONDERFUL this place is but if you stay there I am absolutely sure you will love it!!!!

It was one of the best hotel where we stay. Staff was so helpful and fast enough in servicing. Food was good. Mr Prateek is a nice person who helped us in every way. Room was clean and spacious. Only drawback is rail honk in night but bearable. you will enjoy the beauty, theme & greenery of resort. Staff don't disturb you and you are free to sit anywhere. They give you respect and don't treat you as a customer but treat you as guest. As per my view they don't do the business for earning money but are in hospitality business because they love to treat people.

Room Tip: I will not. Because if people will go in group they might fight for the room. All rooms have differe...

The room we were given on arrival was not what we expected but they kept there promise and moved us the next day to a good room with nice bathroom.
This hotel just outside Jodphur is quiet, set in a peaceful garden away from noise and traffic. A bus or Tut tut can take you to the city.
The owners speak good English, are helpful and manage the business effiicently including online bookings.
One evening one of the brothers took me into the kitchen to show me how they made a dish I had asked about. We ate here each day breakfast and dinner and found the food good. The staff were helpful pleasant and attentive. They all seemed very happy working here, maybe because the tip box was broken open each month in front of them and shared
We would be happy to return

Room Tip: ask for the round rooms
