This place is not a hotel, it's more like a home-stay. As long as you right-size your expectations and don't expect white glove service from trained professionals you are going to be a very happy bunny. I had dozens of niggles but the positives far outweigh everything else. Some happy snapshot memories- a) The staff may not be trained professionally...

A very nice, quiet place to stay in the middle of a large, busy city. Comfortable rooms, excellent meals, and very pleasant grounds. The staff was most helpful. It is a great place to relax while on a busy trip, and an excellent value in all respects. I would recommend it highly. And the peacocks walking through the grounds are...

One of the best homely places in Jaipur. Here's the fine print: 1. Central location: Right opposite the BJP office. Everyone one knows the address. 2. Amazing homely food. These guys have mastered the art of serving the best homemade food, light, hygienic and delicious. 3. The staff is friendly and helpful. The dogs are cute. 4. It's the best...

Great location, nice big room with en-suite shower. Overall very comfortable stay. Meal options for the evening were tasty and excellent value. Breakfast was spot on and the freshly cooked omelettes were a treat. Cannot thank the staff enough as my wife was ill during our stay and the staff showed genuine concern providing hot lemon and ginger and just...

The food is always outstanding. Best chicken wings anywhere! The service is prompt and very professional. If possible, try to meet "the general"! He is a terrific man. Great value for your money. We've been coming to Ixtapa for 8 years, and we always eat quite a few times at the Generals.

The good things first: Good location with lots of greenery, a good garden to laze around with 3 pet dogs and a pair of peacocks. The room was big and the bed was quite comfortable On the flip side: The kitchen closes by 10:00 PM so if you intend to check in late then arrange you own dinner I got...

Our stay was very brief and the last minute rooms we got were not the best. But we could see other rooms later, experience the hospitality, chat with the hostesses and have breakfast, which got us to arrive at the high recommendation. It's a home stay built in a palatial house of a general and maintained by his three daughters,...

It's clean, it's comfortable and it has an old world charm. The attention to detail, the garden and the peocock just added to the ambience. A perfect homestay! It has basic amenities and the food was home-cooked. Stay here if you don't wish to stay at the any of the overpriced chains.

Something about living out of home stays. Nice and tidy rooms, fresh linen, decent amenities, breakfast. Loved the decor and eye for detail. A very friendly and welcoming hostess. Shared the morning tea, had a small chat, got compliments on my skin *blush* Sure to return for the warmth

The generals retreat is a cross between a B&B and a Homestay. The rooms are in a house that belonged to a general so immediately you get a behind the scenes view of all those grand houses you drive past in India wondering what they are like inside. It is a calm in the chaos of Jaipur with a gorgeous...
