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.

This former home of a Maharaja was a real charmer. We particularly liked the open court yards, the spacious and colourful front garden and it's good sized pool with plenty of loungers and supply of towels. The staff were attentive and welcoming, the rooms spacious, clean and well provided. The breakfasts were good but did not have as wide a...

A member of the Royals owns this property and took 4 years to build the beautiful hotel adjacent to the original house. Beautifully blended into the original building is this stone/teak hotel with marble and granite flooring and incredible bathrooms. The family still lives on the property. A most kind and helpful staff. A gleaming pool that is serene. Because...

My friends and I stayed at the Ratan Vilas for two nights and were so happy with everything. We had three huge rooms overlooking the superb pool. The bathrooms each had a bath and were similarly large. All so clean and well kept. The staff are warm and friendly and the gardens are so beautiful to sit in and enjoy...

Ratan Vilas was a really pleasant surprise after a previously disappointing stay at a heritage property in Jaipur. The staff throughout our stay were helpful and friendly. We were welcomed on arrival with a drink in the lovely gardens at the front of the hotel. Although situated on a main road the property is set back so that you could...
