This hotel is a an old fort converted into a luxury hotel. This hotel is located at a hilltop that allows visitors to see great expansive views of the countryside. The rooms in the hotel are comfortable and exceptionally large. The rooms have all modern facilities like well designed bathrooms, safes, hair dryer, electric kettle etc. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The owners of the hotel are very welcoming. It was a treat to talk to them and find out about the history of the place. The most exciting part of the stay was a late night jeep safari into the countryside to spot leopards and other animals. The hotel arranges activities for it's guests like a walk around the village, camel rides, night safaris etc at an additional cost. The food was good. The owners of the hotel also have a number of dogs who hang around in the hotel grounds, which makes for a delightful addition to this beautiful hotel.

The rooms are large with dressing room and bathroom. Breakfast was served on the terrace overlooking the lake.

We visited this wonderful hotel as part of a 12 night stay in India. We stayed for one night and at the time of our visit we were the only guests!! We took the optional extra of a tour around the fort which was well worth it as we were shown around by a lovely lady whose family owned the fort. She was enthusiastic and clearly loved the fort and answered all our many questions in depth. We had a wonderful meal under the stars on the roof terrace and had some fabulous musicians playing for us. The service we received was great and nothing was too much trouble. for any member of staff. If you have time to visit this historical hotel you should.

Located above a village (7000 people or so) the Fort is an amazing sight, with an impressive ramp and entry courtyard. The 35% that has been restored has been done to a terrific standard and our rooms were big and beautifully appointed. From our welcome drinks to leaving the next day the staff/management were great, even though the hotel was quiet, even organising a massage for my wife and daughter at short notice. The views on all sides are amazing, and you can eat your evening meal on the ramparts! There is also a beautiful walled swimming pool to relax by. We stayed as part of an 11 day tour and this hotel really stood out. The owners do a guided tour of the fort which according to other guests is very good.
Try and stay for two nights

We had a long drive from Ranthambore to reach the fort, but it was well worth it. The part they have converted for guests has been beautifully done, using local workman. The glass work on the archways and windows is quite spectacular. The flower beds were equally well designed with the healthiest roses I have seen anywhere in India! We had a charming bedroom with a sit out and were very comfortable. The menu was brought round so we could order our dinner, which was excellent. The first night we made the mistake of ordering far too much, as each dish is plenty for two people, not one, as we thought.
My husband was shown over the fort by the owners wife, which he thoroughly enjoyed. She took endless trouble and explained a lot of the history to him and he returned having had a fascinating morning.
If it is possible, do try and spend two nights there so you can explore the fort and enjoy the whole experience.
