Once a Royal Hunting Lodge

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 27, 2011

We have stayed in many hotels, guest-houses and B&B's all around India. Few had the special atmosphere and serene locality of this old former hunting lodge. It is Government owned, and was a bit neglected, but we found the accomodation to be perfect.Each room consists of 3 huge interlocking rooms, with a sitting area, dressing area and a bedroom.The bathrooms were modern, with hot showers. Everything was spotless. The staff were friendly and helpful. I recommend this hotel very highly. It is more like a guest house - and there were only about 10 visitors there during our 4 day stay. A communal dining room served buffet style meals every evening, and the quality of the food was good. Breakfast and lunches are standard, and the cost was minimal.

Unique Quality: Unique Qualities: Castle Jhoomer has ATMOSPHERE.Set on 4 levels, there are narrow, dark winding stairs leading upwards(candles provided) to the rooftop. The rooms all have windows that are set low down, so that one can see the views, while reclining on the bed or coaches.This is typical hunting-lodge architecture. We were given a "suite" that overlooked the mountainside.
Without a doubt, Castle Jhoomer has the very best location in Sawai Modhopur.and within Ranthambore. It is situated very high on top of the mountain side, with not a building within miles.The views are spectacular, from every level. Every evening at dusk we would climb the narrow stairs to the rooftop, and just take in all the natural beauty surrounding us. We could hear the roar of tigers, leopards , and other wild animals.The birds would perch on the railings, waiting for a tid-bit. We heard not one car or any other human sound. The friendly staff would bring up drinks or snacks if we required any. At night there is folk dancing and singing, around a barbeque fire.We loved this place - We hope to return soon.Maybe we will see a tiger on our next visit.

Directions: Directions: from train station along Ranthambore Road, for 7 km. Turn into gate, steep uphill drive to Hotel
