“weekend getaway”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

we were looking for a place nearby to gurgaon/delhi as we wanted to go on a saturday and come back on a sunday. based on other traveller reviews we selected dadhikar fort - aro 120km from gurgaon. we took the nh8 - and it was not a nice trip-- it had just rained heavily the night before and the roads+ traffic was bad.

we were guided quite ably by the hotel mgr mr yitesh.. and made in about the 3hrs. the resort i understand is more than 1200 years old.. looks very nice and amazing and is a bit secluded. the rooms were neat and clean and the mgt friendly. The lower level staff could be friendlier....in a resort u always feel better if all staff are eager to greet!. They only serve vegetarian food- which was a change. there was a lot of choice and food was nice. There was a lovely cultural show at night... which was well received and enjoyable.

One area which the hotel can improve- the water geyser in each room is small capacity and the water pressure is low. i dont know why resorts dont use at least 50-75litre capacity geysers with adequate water pressure for each room. After a long day.. nothing like a long hot shower to perk ones spirit!

It's a good weekend getaway place from all the noise and pollution in the city. Good for one night and is very peaceful. It's a vegetarian place and the food is quite good. However, there's no room service so if you've missed the meal timings you need to wait for the next one. The staff is very courteous and helpful, especially the manager.

Definitely worth an experience!

Room Tip: Stayed in their suite but the jacuzzi doesn't work properly so not quite worth it.

went to celebrate my mom and dad 31st anniversary. Perfect place for a weekend getaway. We reached in two and a half hours. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Staff is cooperative and extremely courteous. Food was excellent, way beyond expectations. My whole family loved the food. Fort is beautiful and at perfect location. Totally worth it!

If you are looking for peace, good Rajasthani food, and quality time together, Dadhikar Fort is the place to go ! The scenery is breathtaking ! The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is totally vegetarian, and reminds you of typical Rajasthani home food, with things like Daal Baati Churma and Gatta and Sangri.

The rooms are good too ! We stayed at Kokilavan, which is great value for money, and a very good choice for couples as it is secluded and there is no disturbance. It opens into a courtyard of sorts where noone comes, so its better than most of the jharoka rooms. We had a look at some other rooms too, and all seemed nice and clean. We didn't find any insects and lizards as specified in some other reviews. The staff is helpful, though a bit slow in service.

There was a really nice Rajasthani troupe that performed for us in the evening. There aren't too many activities yet, as the place is relatively new. The approach road is unique, you cant see the fort till ur 200m away from it ! Ask for Bala quila in Alwar, and from there it is easy to find this fort.

The place is not very child friendly, as there are lot of open edges without railings and you need to take care of your child (but i guess this is expected in a fort). Also, dont eat the 'continental and italian' part of the food, stick with the Indian and Rajasthani. Also they dont have room service, which is a drawback. Overall, a serene experience, far away from the hustle and bustle of daily city life !

Room Tip: We stayed at Kokilavan, which is great value for money, and a very good choice for couples as it is...

This hotel is great, very different from what you see in NCR. It’s very near to Alwar surrounded by Arawali hills the style is very cosmopolitan and very chic. The rooms are big and very clean, and the amenities are perfect. The service is amazing and you have a different test of Rajsthani culture with food. We have a great time with all principals and their family of Alwar Sahodya. Specially the lunch was so yummy.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent specially "Corner suites are large and sunny"

We are "westerners" who stayed at the fort for 2 nights w/our 2 young children. The valley where this fort lies is absolutely stunning. Some of the most beautiful scenery in India. The restoration of the fort took real vision and the rooms are lovely. Our room was near the back stairs above the staff room and we, unfortunately, had to listen to the staff talking & working and also to the staff that stand at the top of the stairs and then yell down to the staff at the bottom. This is not an inexpensive hotel by any means and it put a damper on our trip to listen to this while trying to fall asleep. I have a few other "suggestions" for this property which would definitely make me want to return..... 1) The front desk area where you check-in is located in such a peculiar place. Instead of utilizing the front entrance of the hotel, they have sandwiched it in a hallway on the way to their terrace where meals are served. I don't know why anyone is interested in seeing the front desk, surveillance cameras and paperwork every time they walk through to enjoy the terrace and/or have a meal. 2) The dinner buffet is served at 8 pm which was more like 8:30 when we were there. This is quite late for those that have children. Not to mention it is very, very cold outside in January and this is your only option of where to eat. It would be nice to offer the breakfast room w/some candles and nice music. Just an idea.... perhaps this hotel needs a feminine touch! The men (including what appeared to be the manager) walk around in a daze acting like they just opened the day before.
I will say that some of the staff was very sweet and were trying hard. It just didn't seem that they were trained properly. The food was quite good and they did have some very nice choices. All in all, it was a strange stay and I can't say that I would recommend this unless you are getting some amazing rate (we paid $150 for a suite w/3 main lights that did not work) and/or have patience for a start up hotel.

This has the potential to be a fabulous hotel, but don't go now while it is under renovation. It was NOISY to the point of not being a pleasant visit. The staff and views are wonderful, the food amazing, but the workmen have no consideration for the guests - they worked late and started early, didn't know how not to shout to one another or keep their music low. The banging and shouting was constant. Also, they advertise that they are near Sariska Tiger Preserve when they are actually about an hour away. That is important when you have an early morning safari planned. We actually missed out jeep because we arrived at the preserve too late. Ended up in a larger vehicle with crying children and didn't (surprise, surprise) see any tigers. One other complaint - they advertised that they had wi-fi when in reality they have a surf-stick they'd rent to you. We enjoyed the food, but nowhere in their literature do they tell you it is 100% vegetarian.

Room Tip: Try to ascertain where the construction is going on and get as far away as possible.
