If this review was only about location and architecture, I would be giving The Tower House 5 stars. But my review is about my overall experience, about how much I enjoyed my staying in this hotel and, let me tell you, I was going to give it only two stars if not for the bathroom of my room that by...

For the price we paid for a room (7,500 rupees) the quality is shocking. The room was a decent size, and the decor takes you back years, and the location is prime, and I suspect that is what you pay for, but I question the price they put on that. Those are the only redeeming features. Everything else was poor....

Didn't stay at the umpteen homestays available as pics don't give a true picture of cleanliness etc. Was disappointed as the property didn't live up to it's Neemrana brand. The staff is very nice and tries it's best but there...

We stayed for 2 nights with kids and had a very comfortable stay. The staff are really nice accommodating to any request that we have. The pool is perfect to relax after a long day. Despite the mosquito menace, the hotel made arrangements such that we had a trouble free night.

We came here on Christmas Eve and absolutely loved the property and also the room we got. Great and helpful staff. Only thing that could be improved would be the food which was so-so to say the most. Would definitely want to come back

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house and hence the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. The scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship. And indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us.The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate, large tubs and windows that have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. It’s been restored to be compatible with present day needs while maintaining its structural integrity. It reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly.The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and it is adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism.Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings. ... more   less
