A comfortable retreat
Ranthambore Regency is situated just 2.5 km from the train station, and 10 km from the national Park, on the main drag through the small town of Sawai Madhopur.
A main building (whe we were staying) and cottages in the ground around the swimming pool. The cottages have terraces overlooking the pool.
Nice big airy rooms with two beds, a small settee and coffe table, TV, telephone, writing desk and chair, dressing room with full length mirror and a small dressing table and stool. En suite bathroom with bath and shower.
A small shop sells souvenirs, books, post cards, clothing and other items. Laundry is available, as is money exchange. One of the first things we did after we arrived was to contact the reception to get our mattress changed. When David sat down on the bed and his bottom made no indentation on the mattress whatsoever, I knew it would be far too hard for me to be able to sleep on.
The mattress was made of coir, and was equivalent of sleeping on a rock! Getting it changed was no problem, however, and within minutes of our request, two boys arrived with a couple of new, much softer, mattresses.
The next morning everyobody else were complaining about the lack of sleep, and number of bruises on the bodies, whereas we could boast a good night. All the others changed their mattresses too!
