I was in Castle Kanota this January in a group of 7 and had an amazing experience. Being a heritage hotel it is not for the five star traveller ( which is what I WAS ) as there are NOT modern conveniences such as TV in the room, telephone, etc., but how wonderful to get away from that and find the true Rajasthan. It was very cold at that period and we were supplied old-fashioned one bar electric heaters-dangerously wired- for the room which I thought not up to standard - not too difficult to find more modern and efficient heaters. Extra blankets were available. Walk-in shower was fabulous but towels could be whiter and newer.. The food was FABULOUS and we had different dishes each lunch and dinner for 10 days ! The owners went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything we wanted. I would say that the staff need training - they want to be helpful and in the true Indian style do everything they can to attend to guests needs, but really are not efficent. Sometimes this can be very frustrating, but I think they do not understand English as well as they make out. I would reccommend this hotel for a real taste of the India which is disappearing before my eyes and if the owner Sandleya is around any visitor is in for a treat. She a is charming, delightful lady who is a pleasure to be with.
I will definitely go again.
