Extremely well kept property for a heritage destination which is a real achievement. The extensive grounds in front and the garden at the back where the swimming pool and temple are located are very useful to break the monotony of the road traffic and provide ample opportunities to walk, wander or lounge about. The food was very nice too. I would however ask for a few more local (Rajasthani) dishes. There is a bar (Palladio) on the premises where the catering has been outsourced and which is a real destination for local youngsters. It was packed on both the nights that we stayed there. We saw a new restaurant in a separate building that looked great but was not open for business when we visited. It also has a section near the main gate where lots of boutiques have set up shop. Some very nice shopping. The rooms that we stayed in and the ones that we saw all had a bit of character which is to expected in palace hotels. (a minor quibble: the toilets look slightly dated). Also, someone from our group took a few wrong turns while driving on the highway. The location on googlemaps needs updating.
