“First Class Operation”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

This was without a doubt the best 4 star hotel we stayed in India. Everything from the staff to the restaurant to the rooms was excellent. Our favorite stop in Rajasthan.

Rooms; Beautiful, large room. Very comfortable beds. Flat screen TV. Mini bar - fridge. Coffee/tea maker. AC, Large storage and dressing area. In-room safe. Large bathroom. Bath tub/shower. Very clean. FREE in room Wi-fi.

Staff; Very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Couldn't have been better. Several previous reviews I read complained about the staff. Maybe they did some training after that as everyone was great during our stay.

Breakfast; Large buffet. Huge selection. Way more than most of us fat westerners could eat in one sitting. Eggs to order. cereals, fruits, yogurt. Cheese platter. Breads and rolls. Juices. Six different Indian dishes plus nann bread and rice.

Restaurant. Excellent quality and reasonably priced for a hotel of this caliber. The wait staff were friendly, funny and helped us select several dishes that we had not been familiar with. $5.00US - $10.00US per dish. Two dishes and rice easily feed three people.

Rooms included amazing beds, great swings, plentiful space, and very nice bathrooms. There are options to stay in luxury tents and even a room with a tree growing up through it.

The Ajit Bhawan was my least favourite hotel (out of about 10) during our trip to India. Initial appearances promised a lot more that it delivered. Best features: room, the bar above the pool and sitting outside to eat in the evenings. Poor features: the quality of service - loads of staff running around while guests were ignored and the food was inexplicably poor, considering the market this hotel pitches itself at: the breakfast buffet was extremely limited (even by Indian tourist hotel standards), the evening Buffet was indifferent though the 'à la carte' was better (just). Lasting impression was that there was a lot of staff standing waiting to get tipped but not exactly providing much of a service for their clientele!

Room Tip: Don't choose the evening Buffet - more expensive than going "a la carte" and pop in fo...

We stayed here in January 2012 and from the moment we left the Circuit Road were made to feel welcome. The rooms are scattered round the gardens and ours was on the first floor round a courtyard. Room was large with a good bathroom and comfortable chairs and table outside. The restaurant was excellent with a very good choice of foods from all over India and was reasonable. Guests could eat outside where they had fires to keep warm. Staff were friendly and always in evidence. We also ate in the courtyard restaurant owned by the Ajit Bhawan just down the road.
