Stay in larger than life rooms, dine in the royal dining hall and take a stroll in the mango orchards! Want to feel like a royalty? Head to Mudfort, kuchesar, just a few kms away from Delhi. This family-run heritage property is filled with royal paraphernalia, antique furniture and family portraits. If you wish to experience the village life, ask for a village tour. A bullock cart takes you inside the village and you get to walk through the mango orchards around the property. You can also see jaggery being from sugarcane made near the property. ot only we bought some freshly made jaggery, we also got to taste some! The service at the property is extremely good. The servers dressed in kurtas and pagdis will help you with whatever you ask for. We mostly had vegetarian food and it was delicious.

Room Tip: Choose the room on the top floor to get a good view of the village

Mudfort brings a smile to my face each time I remember the magical moments I spent there. Simple architecture, neat rooms, good food and warm hospitality sum up my experience. Humble staff ensures guests are well taken care of.

This place is a typical zamindar haveli amongst the village background. The property is a huge one and offers scenic view of the farms and trees. A variety of common birds like peacock, egrets etc can be spotted in the common areas.

The rooms are basic but decent at the same time. The large roof tops came as a complete surprise. We booked three and all of them varied as per the sizes. An extra bed is placed for a child over 12 yrs in each of these rooms.

The chef and his kitchen team does a decent job on the food. Breakfast, lunch & dinner are served only by way of buffets. The variety of food is good, tastes mostly impressive with less of spices. Do confirm the menu from the hotel on a daily basis. Some foodstuff for Children should be considered like that of noodles etc. Only a small variety of snacks are available between the meals which needs to be improved in the longer run. Do carry your own liquor as per your choices since no options are available any where close-by.

The place offers a variety of activities to spend your time in the quaint backgrounds. There is sports room with table tennis and other indoor games like carrom, ludo etc. You can visit an orchard nearby consisting of lemon, guava & mango trees. The hotel people transport you to this garden with the help of a Bullock Cart which is a lot of fun in itself. A Potter's wheel has been kept to while away your time. There is a small pool with the cold borewell water which shall cool you off amongst the heat.

Don't expect too much from this place! It's not your regular 5 star place, just about 3 star. Being a large place and property, it becomes a bit difficult to maintain it for the management perhaps although the place is entirely clean. I found it to be a little under staffed as well. Do check your Air conditioning systems after you check in to your room. Mine broke down on the first night which was a little bit of a problem. Since we had three rooms we adjusted accordingly. Also don't forget to carry a Bug Spray for the flying terrorists that attack you post evening.

The place is rubbish. It was Super boring, had absolutely no directions from the road. Nothing to do while there. Staff was poorly educated. Nothing around to go to. Wouldn't go again even if I got free stay.

- It's a nice property, a refreshing one given its proximity to Delhi as a quick getaway (roundabout 75 kms, 2 hours ride if you are driving). The accessibility, the quality of roads to reach the fort definitely gives it extra points.
- It's a clean property.
- The food served during lunch and dinner was really loved by my family. Simple but tasty and had that village like (unadulterated) feel to it. The Baigan ki sabji, the dal, chicken curry, seviyan....we loved it. We profusely complemented the chef.
- The service is smiling.

- There's a difference between simplicity (keeping it simple) and not investing enough. I have visited enough resorts across geographies to realise when a heritage site converted partly into a hotel is serious business or just to earn extra bucks. Not enough is invested into the rooms and definitely not worth the 6500 bucks per night, including all meals. I would have been very happy if the rates were 3000 plus meals. Thus around 4000, all inclusive.
- During our visit, the relatives of the owners (nieces/ nephews / children on summer vacations) were visiting the property and were too noisy for our comfort and one teen girl was even rude to my mother. I had noticed during our checking in that the pool table was out of bounds for guests and I thought that probably it was undergoing maintenance. In the evening, I was surprised to see that the room adjoining our room was the hall which had the pool table. It was all lit up and I had naturally thought that it was opened for guests. It was borderline insulting to have been told that the pool hall was only opened for the kids visiting the owners. You don't treat guests like S**t. Really.
- The room decor was barely meeting standards. The drapes were very average, the bed was hard, the electricity charging points were too few and most of them were burnt up. The air conditioning took more than an hour to cool the room.

To sum it all, one gets the feeling of being ripped off in the name of a heritage property. There's a lot of promise to this property, but I am not sure if the owners are really serious about it, or are serious about its potential.
