I visited Mrs Bhandari's for two nights while touring the north on a motorcycle. Let's get the negative out of the way first: I very nearly didn't make it. I called for directions, and the manager absolutely refused to give me any. He insisted that I hand the phone, with battery low, to a succession of confused shopkeepers, even though... More

Stayed here for three nights, the place is beautiful in the suburbs of Amritsar. Handy to get into golden temple (10 min auto) and wagah border (1000 rupees). Peaceful place to crash out to avoid the huddle and bustle enjoying the pool. Don't bother getting the wifi as it wouldn't connect also the food is expensive for India. Yet overall... More

This was booked as part of our tour, so did not have any choice in where we stayed. we were there in March so it was a bit chilly at night. the food is very good and the grounds are small but perfectly formed. The main house its self is like something lifted from the 1930's and wonderfully decorated in... More

We really struggled to find somewhere we liked the look of to stay in Amritsar: the top end hotels had mixed reviews and looked bland and corporate and the hotels near the Golden Temple all looked noisy and a bit grim. This looked a little out of the ordinary so we gave it a shot. It was OK: nice fairly... More

This is a step back in time in all the good ways. We arrived at 3am and couldn't have received a more welcoming reception. The staff were attentive to all our requests, as was Mrs Bhandari herself. As another reviewer points out, the grounds and background are historic and its worthwhile to take the time to read up on it.... More

I find it quite upsetting that people can say negative things about this guesthouse especially as it is so lovingly cared for and efficiently managed by Mrs Bhandari's daughter and her staff. The place has so much 1930's character - our room had original floor tiles, fire place and furniture, yet everything is spotlessly clean and there is ample hot... More

Mrs. Bhandari's Guest House is a histroric gem in Amristsar. You will enjoy it so much more if you look up its history before you go. This is family run for decades, it has very advanced environmental ideas including a whole lot of fresh from their garden ingredients in their excellent meals. Water is solar heated and there are just... More

First of all, they simply weren't hospitable nor were they helpful! They almost made us feel like they were doing us a favor by letting us stay there, in spite of the fact that we made the reservations (2 rooms) 3 months in advance... It was hard to find, they put our rooms far away from the actual guesthouse, the... More

One in a thousand. if you go to Amritsar, you must stay at Mrs. Bhandari's. Staff is very friendly and efficiently helps with the taxis and rickshaws. The spirit if the lady lives on in every square inch of this well preserved place. Congratulations to the present generation of Bhandaris for the treat.
