Hotel Shekhawati
Ranked #3 of 14 Hotels in Mandawa
Reviewed 5 February 2012

We spent three nights here, and could not recommend the hotel more highly. The rooms are beautifully painted, which is really original. The roof top restaurant is lovely for a sunset beer and the food is simple and good. The owner, Mr Pramod Pareek, is brilliant. He'll fix anything for you, and always with a smile. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice, but the bigger ones are the best, and not much more expensive.

Once you enter the gates, you are in a quiet, amazing wall painting that you barely want to leave. The hotel is stunning. We were greeted by the manager and he was always visible. Our room was beautiful. The designer deserves so much credit. Simple, clean lines with beautiful kilims and Indian quilts to add some color. The bathroom was total luxury.



Food was great and staff really wanted to introduce you to a variety of Indian dishes.

Staff were wonderful- helpful and interesting to talk with. They truly help to make this hotel great.

Room Tip: use second floor room from the back side.

I visited Mandawa with my family in Diwali 2011. I was fortunate to get a reservation at Hotel Shekhawati despite calling at short notice.

We stayed in the super-deluxe room. It had beautiful Shekhawati-school frescoes on all the walls and ceiling. The bathroom was spotless. The room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated with frescoes. The hotel has a boiler for hot water, which is fired every morning and any time when requested.

Mr. Pramod Pareek has an intimate knowledge of the area and is very helpful. He provided us with a detailed roadmap for sight-seeing in Shekhawati and also loaned us his copy of 'The Lonely Planet' for the duration of our stay to help us plan our trips. He also provides a local guide on request.

The hotel is located a couple of blocks off the Mandawa-Mukangarh road. Since it is located in the town, one can experience rural Rajasthan living without sacrificing on comforts.

Highly recommended place.

Room Tip: The Super-Deluxe room is spacious with every inch of the walls and ceiling covered in frescoes.

The hotel is beautifully decorated with bright murals in most rooms and one of the only budget options in the area. However, our room wasn't made up on our arrival and so we had to ask for towels, sheets, toilet roll, etc. In addition the beds were very hard and there were frequent power cuts which meant that the room started to boil after just a few minutes as the fan/air con stopped.

The owner was helpful in organising tours and settling us in, though the rest of the staff seemed to use the hotel as a hang out and shouted to each other between the floors at every hour which disturbed us. Service was not high on the agenda and at times was overly 'friendly'.

The hotel's website states its the cheapest accommodation in Mandawa. Don't be misled by this claim thinking that the facilities and services will be sub standard. Instead, you will be surprised by the spacious rooms, absolutely exquisite fresco paintings and some very courteous service by the hotel staff. In fact, the staff is the plus point of this hotel. They are very cheerful and ever willing to provide excellent service. The hotel boasts of a roof top restaurant from where the bird's eye view of Mandawa would just stun you. The hotel overlooks Castle Mandawa, the erstwhile Mandawa fort now converted into a heritage hotel. The food cooked by the hotel chef will leave you salivating for more. They specialize in Rajasthani cuisine and we were treated with the best of food that our palette could ask for. Overall, an amazing experience.

Room Tip: Look for rooms in the 2nd floor and ones that open balcony view
