Dear Dr Maya, Joba (Sumitra) & I thank you for your kind words. All five of you were so positive and cooperative. You saw the good in everything. We were happy to have you with us as our guests. You were among the few guests who took the time to go around and 'see' the garden, recognise the varieties and... More

We stayed in Jheelam for almost a week. Its location (near the lake) and its garden are lovely. Its residents are helpful and friendly. Its rooms are spacious and offer everything you need. Considering these qualities, the prices are only modest. In addition, there is the casual, personal touch: staying in a family home can be so much nicer than... More

Dear Marie & Robert, thank you for your kind words. One can't do much about the location which is quite pretty but we can & do try to be warm and helpful to all guests. I must confess that you, individually and as a couple were among the best to stay with us. Both of you going for yoga to... More

The entire family of the homesaty including garderner, cook are very hospitable. One feels comforatble immediately. I like the concept of having breakfast with Goswamis, this is quite a... More

It's beautiful, clean and right on the edge of the largest lake in Bhopal. The hosts, the Goswamis, are gracious and helpful. The high-ceiling rooms, at least the bigger ones, come with large living spaces. In all, the facilities cover everything one could ask for and some more - like stars on the bed-sheet that glow in the dark. But... More

This homestay is clean, well maintained and set in a wonderful surrounding. But what made my stay extra special is the Goswami family. They are one of the most welcoming people I've met traveling through India. The Jheelam Homestay has a great view of the upper lake and it takes you away from the busy city. Jhoba makes sure you...

Bhopal will always remain as a special place for me, because of JHEELAM & it’s owners Brig Prabir Goswami & Mrs. Joba Goswami. It’s not a Specialty Lodging for me but I feel it’s my home. Apart from beautifully well decorated rooms & variety of delicious foods served, Jheelam has something more to give you. That is it’s surroundings, the... More

Stayed here for a night with my family in 2 rooms, the green and blue rooms as they call it for Rs.1500 each without air-conditioning. The best thing about Jheelum for us was that it was clean and tidy, something lacking in the other 6 budget places I stayed at in MP on my vacation. Also the rooms had a... More

The entry by Mr Vinod Kumar from Chennai is most encouraging. Thanks for the kind comments. However, a few corrections are in order. - We do not have a 'Green' Room. It is 'Pink'! A better colour, I dare say, with everything green outside. - The Blue and Pink suites have a geyser, AC & tv but the Brown Room,... More

We were travelling back from Orccha to Mumbai and needed a nice place to stopover in Bhopal. By sheer chance connected with the the Goswamis. Spent a delightful evening with the Goswamis and another friend. The place is whats called "homestay", but you can choose to have as much privacy as you want. Clean neat, unpretentious but lets you have... More

A lovely place indeed. The beauty of its location with lake & hills around, charms one and all. A meticulously well maintained garden adds to one's delight. If you want to read or pen down your thoughts, meditate or simply relax, well, this is the place. The energetic couple owning & running the show will leave no efforts to make... More
