My wife & I stayed in the new spoonbill for a week, Feb 2019. Our room on the 1st floor was spacious, with large cupboard/wardrobe space, 2 chairs & coffee table, hot water for shower and door onto a balcony with 2 more. Like another guest our train was delayed & we arrived very late, but Mr Singh walked to the crossroads in his pyjamas & dressing gown to direct us. Renu his daughter in law saw to our every comfort & also cooked excellent meals for us, also supplying us with sandwiches to take to Keolodeo Sanctuary - which was only a 10 minute walk away or 3 mins. in tuk tuk. Re. the Sanctuary. Felt a little grieved that, as usual entrance to the bird Sanctuary was Rs75 but for foreigners, Rs500 , each day cost us Rs1000 and no 3 or 7 day cheaper tickets, We used Pritam & his cycle rickshaw (Rs150 per hour). Excellent knowledge of all the birds in the park & where to find them. So much so that we had no need for a guide (would have been an additional Rs250 per hour). Used Pritam for two days then had a couple of days just walking by ourselves. Small birds though were few & far between compared with our last visit 5 years ago. We agreed with Pritam that this is due to mobile phone masts being installed, not just in India but world wide.
