We were a group of 5 adults & 2 children for the trip to Ranthambore NP .Based on TA suggestions we choose to stay at the RTDC (Rajasthan Tourism) run Castle Jhoomar Baori since it is the only accomodation located inside the Sanctuary (the National Park is of course off limits for all accomodation). Thr price was slightly on the higher side being peak season (Diwali)

The manager Mr. Jitendra Singh is very helpful and assisted us for all the bookings. The rooms itself are very oddly shaped but that adds charm to the whole experience. Plus to enter into the hotel, u need to go through 2 kms of forest area which is a pleasant experience as well. Also near the hotel, we spotted a leopard kill and hyenas at night so made it that much more thrilling. We were also told that around 3 months ago a tiger was sighted in the jungle part near the entrance.

being inside the jingle, it is a hotel with character. Plus they have a lovely terrace which is a good vantage point. The food and service was pretty good with the waiters taking personal care and attention

Overall very good for those who wish to experience a hotel with character in the national park sanctuary. For luxury and comfort, go elsewhere

Stayed: November 2010, travelled with family

We stayed there for two nights in MArch 2010. The hotel is located in a forest area. The access to the hotel is through private road for 2 km. This strech of 2 km is like a travel inside the park itself and has lots of wildlife like deers, birds etc.

The rooms were good considering that the same is a heritage property. The views from the rooftop of the hotel is remarkable.

Due to its location, you may often find insects in the bathroom /room. The food quality was OK but the service could have been better.

For Safaris booked online, one has to go to the booking office to submit the papers and get your vehicle alloted just 90 minutes before safari time. Hotel people did not assist in submitting the forms. You can mention the hotel you stay in the form and the jeep will pick you up from your hotel. So I had to go to the booking office early morning to submit the papers and come back to hotel and get picked up by the jeep. This is one of the major deficiency in the service quality of the hotel.

However, if you do not have your own vehicle, you may find difficulty in reaching the park office/town and may have to shell out extra money on taxi/auto.

Overall it was good experience.

This resort enjoys a fantastic location. It still retains its rustic charm from the dated era.
I will go point wise -

1. LOCATION : Simple awesome. It is the only resort inside the reserve. On your way to the resort you can easily spot sambhars, neelgai, and if u r lucky...a panther too. Peacocks are in abundance. Squirrels accompany you over breakfast..which is damn lovely.
You have attached courtyards on each floor where u can enjoy the views.

2. FOOD : The food was good. We stayed there for 3 days and the food was always good. Infact if you request the chef for some delicacy, he will prepare it for you.

3. ROOMS: The rooms were big yet small. There is a passage on the entry and then the bedroom. The bedrooms hardly have walking space but they are generally clean. You will have to mind your head while moving around the room. A price you pay to enjoy the originality of the rooms. They are more or less in their original shape.

4. STAIRS : THERE IS NO LIFT IN THIS RESORT....YES....!!!
That's a big drawback. Climbing up 2 to 3 floors with more than usual no of steps is a bit of pain. A lift is a must but its not there.

You can walk down the resort and explore the flora and fauna on your own as well during the day (going beyond the resort courtyard on foot after dusk is prohibited as animals roam around freely). You can see neelgais moving along the wall at night while having dinner !!

Overall, a very good stay. Staff is courteous and efficient. Very good food, good variety. Neat rooms, fantabulous location...

MUST VISIT !!!

This is the best located resort in the whole of ranthambhore as it might be the only accomodation in the forest buffer zone itself. The approx 2 km drive from the main road till the castle is great, one can spot chinkaras (indian gazelles), neelgais (bluebull antelopes), sambhar deer, spotted deer, plenty of birds and if lucky even a Leopard. Infact a leopard had killed a deer just behind the hotel in the night, seems this is a regular occurence.
The rooms are clean and comfortable food is just about ordinary, serves only Indian dishes and the foreigners might find it too spicy.
The front desk arranges for the safari trips into the Ranthambhore park and the safari vehicles pick-up guests from the hotel.
On one day we deliberately missed the safari and instead went for a walk till the main road and spotted a lot of birds alongwith the above mentioned animals.
We also spotted a Tiger during our safari trips. Tiger sighting depends on your luck and its recommended to take atleast 4-5 safaris for good sightings/photography.
