“A charmingly rustic place on the edge of the Park.”
Reviewed 18 March 2011

Group of 8 friends (pensioners) from Italy. We were booked at The Pugmark by the Tour Operator who organised our Indian tour, Travel Shastra in New Delhi and spent 2 nights there 20-21 Nov 2010. It is a rustic hotel, very suited to the place. We stayed in the Standard bungalows: the rooms are basic but spacious and airy, comfy beds, good size bathroom. We were on a Full Board Plan, which is the normal Plan in Ranthambore as the hotel is really in the middle of nowhere, and found that the food was plentiful and of good quality. Friendly staff. In-situ evening entertainment provided by local dancers. Pleasant all-around atmosphere. Cool in the evenings and very cold in the early morning safari. We didn't see any tigers, but we did see plenty of colourful birds, deer, a big croc and several monkeys, plus the scenic beauty of the Park.

This is a reasonably comfortable hotel. The rooms were clean so no problems there. There was enough hot water & a fridge in the room also. The evening 'entertainment' left a lot to be desired but I was in a group so we entertained ourselves. I like the idea of not having to take money every day to the bar & the bill was easily settled at the end of the stay. The hotel is down a dusty track but not a million miles from the main road & the entrance to the park. It also allowed us to view life in the fields with the women working in their beautiful saris. We also past a little pond every day going to & fro & the birdlife there was really lovely to see, so I wouldnt knock the journey. It only takes about 10 mins anyway. There is a lovely large swimming pool but alas didnt have time to try it out. There are sunbeds & towels are provided. The food, for me, was a bit boring. You can have too much curry & not my scene for breakfast at all. Most people enjoyed the food, I didnt. I would stay here again. Staff very helpful, no problems!

This was a welcome break to the north India leg if our trip. The restaurant buffet is average and a bit like a school canteen, rooms are nice. Very quiet surroundings. Safari has nothing on an African safari and tiger sightings are quite rare, we had 3 x 3 hr safaris and didn't see any. Road from Agra to here is very poor

The picture of reception in the adverts is nothing like reality, however once through the 'cave reception' you are greeted by pleasant gardens and space between the cottages to give privacy. The pool was clean. More beds needed as these were 'bagged' early on with towels!
The rooms were clean. Dining room was rather lacking in atmosphere and echoed so noisy when a number of people all talking but the food was very good and the dining room staff very attentive and helpful at all times. Coffee was provided in the garden at 6.30am before going on safari and breakfast waiting when you returned.
I would strongly recommended paying extra for a jeep rather than the 16 seater safari truck. We had to wait over an hour one cold morning while it picked people up. Also seats were crowded and some people blocking the view of others. We did see a tiger close up but the trucks drove at high speed over very rough roads. Tipping was a problem as if they felt you had not given enough they would ask for more.
The hotel had a tip box. I would certainly stay at this hotel again and perferred it to the larger busier one next door. It was in a remote location but this was not a problem as we were full board during this part of our holiday.

Pugmark has an advantage over other hotels as it is situated very close to the main entrance of the safari. The rooms are very clean and the hospitality of the staff is commendable. The food is just awesome and they have a very good variety served. The rooms are big. The garden was beautiful that time...and the place is very peaceful and is maintained very neatly. The hotel had booked a safari for us and thanks to our luck we had also seen a tigress in our first and last safari on that trip. The staff is very helpful and never says no for anything...They also served us maggi on special request...
