I am not sureof what there is to do in Mandawa but it is a nice place to stop on the way back from Jaisalmer to Delhi. The property is in a fantastic old fort just slightly isolated from the rest of the city. The property has an old beauty and is relatively well maintained. The courtyards and greenery are...

As you drive into the gates of the castle , you are mesmerised by this raw beauty right in front of you. Raw because the property is very well maintained keeping its originality and earthly charm intact. Very rarely, do you make a plan as well as get a chance to stay in a beautiful heritage hotel, such as this...

You don't often get a chance to stay the night in a Castle at very affordable prices. This is the perfect location to stroll out into the streets and explore Mandawa but come back to a little luxury. The rooms are spacious and have a verandah to see and relax on.

An excellent hotel with very courteous staff. Staying in an actual fort was great experience. The town has numerous Havelis worth seeing. The Hotel may like to introduce more history in various locations.

Had a very short stay in this Hotel so couldn't explore much. The entrance tho this hotel is quite interesting. The building is very well maintained keeping its old charm intact. Rooms were big, food was delicious. Staff was courteous.

The only negative is that there was a light in the room that none of the switches we could find would turn off, so it got left on all night. But the room was lovely, the atmosphere of the hotel was peaceful. Service at the restaurant good. Oddly enough no TV, but that was not a bad thing.

This hotel is a beautiful place to stay, but be aware of wedding parties. The day we arrived, a lot of guests for a wedding arrived too. There was a red carpet and music and dancing and also drinks for them. In any hotel in India we have been welcomed with a drink, but this time the drinks were only...

When we came to Mandawa we didn't expect too much from accommodation since this is very small town. When we enter to Castle Mandawa we were just surprised that this is only 3 star hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious together with a huge bathroom. Food in the restaurant was tasty and nice, personnel very polite. Only cons is that...

This place was amazing for the atmosphere alone! the pool and the views you could get from any part of the hotel are well worth the stay! However since it is an older hotel be aware that there is no tv and no wifi in the rooms so bring a book or pre downloaded shows on a computer / iPad...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Like many historic homes, Castle Mandawa is a curious mixture of the old and the new. Medieval turreted towers, palanquin-roofed balconies, blend with modern comforts in old-world rooms. Family portraits, antique cannons and arms add to the charm of this family-run resort where tradition still runs strong. Today, the world comes to this storybook town to see its colourful frescoes on every subject under the sun, that is, ranging from the religious to the erotic; from copies of popular English prints to witty social satire, rendered in the inimitable style of the local artist. And perhaps the best place to discover the legacy of Shekhawati is from the comfort of Castle Mandawa, a fortress, now converted into a luxurious heritage hotel. Explore Castle Mandawa at your own pace. Spend a leisurely hour over a drink in the colonial verandah that accommodates the bar, or relax in the cosy comfort of the Diwankhana, the formal drawing room decorated with family portraits and an array of antique armour. ... more   less
