“Back to the Raj!”

We had the pleasure of spending a night at Newtons Manor during a recent trip to Jodhpur and would highly reccomend this place to anybody seeking a place to stay with a difference. Resembing a homage to all that is Merchant Ivory, the decor is pure Rudyard Kipling Victoriana, harking back to the glorious (for some) days of the Raj! We were made to feel like honoured guests in a large family home rather than paying customers such was the attentive nature of the staff. Fabulous home cooked food was provided at a very reasonable price and served on a lovely antique dining table -( we were offered time slots so that our meal times did not clash with other guests so we had the impression of having the run of the house). The house is pretty central to all that needs to be seen in Jodhpur and is in a quiet street - tuk tuks can be easily hailed from the road infront of the house. There is a pleasant seating area outdoors but no alcohol is served - however there is a stall a few steps away that sells ice cold beers which can be brought back to Newtons Manor. Our room was clean and comfortable and had we not pre-booked accomodation before travelling to Jodhur , we would have gladly stayed here for the remainder of our trip. So don't hesitiate - book right away! Stayed February 2011, travelled with friends


“Quirky decor but not unpleasant stay”

Newton's has an old school-British air about its decor. There are some hunting trophies including a tiger and a snooker table as well as general memorabilia. Rooms are clean and relatively quiet. Bathrooms are serviceable and clean. Staff are helpful and home-cooked food is great value for money. Stayed December 2010, travelled as a couple

“Like a room by your friends...”

We were received by very kind people in a house similar to that of old friends, not a hotel. Automatically we act as by friends: we can have good meals at lunch / dinner time, but we must say it some hours before. At dinner, we are at a table with other people like us, and in minutes we start a conversation about our journey, temples, palaces... Internet available free of charge, if needed. Additionally, we pay a very reasonable price. Stayed February 2011, travelled as a couple
