This villa has a delightful a ambiance in a rather busy city. Very peaceful entrance, rooms were large and inviting. Away from the hustle and bustle. Dinner on the terrace was enjoyable. The owner introduced herself which made this also memorable.Breakfast was great as well.

Gorgeous hotel with lovely heritage feel to it. The pool was great and we had it to ourselves. The staff were kind and welcoming. Only downside is that there is no wifi in the rooms however the front porch is a great place to sit and have a beer and use the wifi

This is a delightful heritage property which tastefully reflects a bygone India, There are many heirlooms dotted around the property and much of the furniture and artwork is period. However modern amenities ensure a relaxed and comfortable stay with the well maintained pool and beautiful gardens providing an oasis of calm at breakfast and at the end of the day....

Lovely boutique property set back from the road, with lovely garden and secluded pool area. The hotel kindly upgraded us, so we had our own veranda overlooking the pool and garden. Staff were charming and very helpful. Excellent food

Can't say enough great things about this property - an old mansion (family still lives on premises) with tons of charm, but with all the modern amenities. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. The restaurant is very good and there are nice tables for outdoor dining. The staff make you feel like part of a family (in the good...

After the frenetic ride through Jodhpur, to turn into this haven was an absolute delight. Quiet and central is my best description. Close to military airfield so occasional burst jet noise but that was sporadic. Close the best room that we stayed in on the entire trip. Good breakfast served in the garden. A place to relax especially if, as...

Spent 3 wonderful nights here, enjoying Jodhpur and watching/playing Holi. Made exceptionally welcome back by the family, and staff, and were privileged to stay in the older part of the house. We had a massive room, and lovely bathroom. Meals were in the dining room which was added when the house was converted into a hotel. Breakfast was average, but...

We arrived at the Ratan Vilas at about 11.00pm from the train but there were staff waiting for our arrival and to help us through check-in and move our bags to our room. We were also offered refreshments. The hotel stands back from a busy road but is sufficiently removed from it that the noise from the road is not...

We loved the Ratan Vilas, it had a fabulous history and had been kept in the family with the grandparents still living next door. It is set off the main road down a long driveway opening up onto fabulous gardens which were beautifully kept wit the hotel set around inner courtyards with seating outside the rooms. The swimming pool was...

The hotel is in a palace and has a beautiful garden. We had a fairly large room that was very clean. We also ate at the restaurant. The breakfast was quite good but the dinner was a buffet which was OK but not outstanding. Wifi was only available near the reception, and even there it only worked sporadically.
