This was our third hotel/homestay in India and each has been wonderful in its own way. Dera Mandawa is the smartest we've been to and its welcome after a day of hot travel was truly special. We were ushered to a huge and comfortable room and attended by staff who struck the balance perfectly between friendly and efficient. We ate well and for a reasonable price and I highly recommend it. We also had all our laundry done and ironed at a very reasonable price. I've read the review a couple of posts down from, I think it was, Avid David who moaned about air condition not being left on. I was incensed - has the fellow never heard of waste? Most decent people would have been more annoyed if the hotel did keep rooms unnecessarily cool. If you get the opportunity stay here.
