My family (2 adults + 3kids) stayed for 3 nights during June 4-6th. Stephen and Manjula are great hosts and me, my wife and kids enjoyed this home a lot. Stephen provided sight seeing tips, guidance for shopping, interesting conversations using his knowledge/experiences from east (India) and west (Europe) Manjula provided great breakfast which is complementary and dinners when we...

We so enjoyed having you stay and your review was especially useful as it provided examples of other things guests can do during their stay. I'm at last, getting round to respond to our reviews.

I'm finally getting around to reviewing Stephen's and Manjula's wonderful, wonderful Mysore Bed and Breakfast. My partner and I, and our two children, aged 2 and 9, stayed here at the start of December 2014 for four nights, travelling from Bangalore on the train. We took a couple of pre-paid autos from Mysore station out to Siddhartha Layout (Rs 75... More

Thank you for a super review. It was such a great introduction to things to do in and around. Very useful for future guests. Thanks we appreciate that.. We've also added to the list of things to visit on our web site, including the little visited nanjangud and Melkote temple towns. We've also added useful maps to the site. We're... More

Well, we went out on a limb a bit with picking M\this place. It came across as quirky - and lived up to that. I was concerned it might get a bit too "busy" sharing a home and more so a bathroom. But on-ground, the shared arrangements all worked perfectly and were so much more enhanced by the lovely reception... More

Thank you, love the title...and so glad it was well worth it. When we first set Up the the BnB we just didn't know what an absolute gas it would be. It's great fun.

One of the things that you are surprised about the place is your host.. Stephen and Manjula.. An unlikely set of hosts.. One Brit and one local.. Each bringing in their own flavors to the stay.. Not only is Stephen a great partner for some interesting and intellectually stimulating conversation, he also knows more about the city than most average... More

It's especially good when we have Indian guests. It can be a bit daunting especially when we're discussing history and even more so when we get into politics.... Eek! With me being a Brit.. But that's one of things that makes it so much fun! The mix of people we have visiting, the tremendous experiences they share, insights they bring... More

The location is great. You are welcomed into a beautiful home. The rooms are immaculate, tastefully done and filled with beautiful art. Meals are a delight.The rooftop garden is the place to greet the sunset. Stephen and Majula have a wealth of knowledge about Mysore and surrounding areas. They will give you valuable suggestions. This was the perfect place to... More

I've checked the records. I think you were the first Mysore Bed and Breakfast guest from Argentina. Great stuff. The previous guests from Argentina hadn't stayed here but had just joined a Mycycle cycle tour of Srirangaptnam. So thank you for being our very first and with such lovely comments especially the love and laughter.... t was great to hear... More

This truely is a home from home. The owner is very welcoming to us and our two small children. The rooms were a decent size and the share living space vast. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The food was amazing. Majula is an amazing cook and even prepared soya pancakes for breakfast as a treat for our dairy intolerant... More

Thanks for a lovely review. You families are our favourites. It's so nice having young people around the place to liven it up whilst also not having the full on duties as a parent!

There's not much I can add to all the other superlatives heaped on this wonderful B&B in other reviews. Manjula & Stephen make you feel like one of their extended family with excellent humour and a warm hearty welcome. The only difficult part about staying here is leaving it at the end of your stay! The lack of attached private... More

Loved the location, the rooms and food, I recommend a room on the lower floor as they seem to be cooler in temperature and more private. It was a great place to end our month long trip. Thumbs up for staying here

This is overdue. I stayed here for a couple of days in January and wish every place had somewhere like it. This is basically Steve's house with bedrooms he rents out (his description is absolutely accurate). The facilities aren't luxurious or fancy but scrupulously clean and meet all needs. Breakfast (and dinner if there is one) are served in a... More
