The concept is lovely, staying in the village with a family. My host family Surend laxmi and their two daughters were exceedingly gracious. The room was clean, has a fan and comfortable bed. There was a bath and toilet which were also clean and towels were provided. Laxmi cooked some delicious food while I was there- nothing beats home made... More

My daughter and I stayed two nights here with a charming village family. They provided us with delightful meals; beds were comfortable and basic essentials were present. We leave with a much better understanding of village life; it's simplicity, it's problems, the pace, the benefit of the UDD toilet system in reducing waste of scarce water, the beauty of listening...

"A powerful experience" - that's precisely what we want your stay with us to be and we're so glad you feel it helped you understand India better. It is often a powerful experience also for our host families and their neighbours as they get to know people from countries they will never have the chance to visit. You bring the... More

We have stayed there 2 nights and it has been a nice experience to know how they live, what they eat, their timings, how are their houses. We will always remember the excellent food cooked by the grandmother and the hospitality and charming behaviour of the three children. Don't miss the opportunity to stay there when you visit Orchha.

So glad you liked living with Mukesh's family and enjoyed his mother's cooking. Our host families do not receive any training in hospitality as such - we want them to relate spontaneously to guests so that you can experience how they always live. Thanks for giving us full marks - we will let the family know. More

Me and my friends were on our annual tour and we had the opportunity to stay at Orchha Home-stay(OHS). It was a wounderful experience. We were fortunate to meet all the families adopted by OHS. Ashok and Anjana, who are in charge of the families, were kind enough to see to our comfort and also made us feel at home.... More

Our team feels so encouraged by your appreciation. We thought at first that the home-stay was mainly for visitors from other countries to discover life in an Indian family. But we realise that even our Indian guests find it a memorable experience. Glad you enjoyed the company of the children of the host families and thanks very, very much for... More

This was recommended in the lonely planet so we checked out the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We stayed with Rambabu, his wife and 3 daughters.

This is a review that is going to make Rambabu, Kiran and the girls very happy. I too love Kiran's cooking. There's no restaurant in Orchha that can match the food freshly prepared on a wood fire by our home-stay ladies. Thanks ever so much for your appreciation of our work and that of the host family. We do hope... More

Orchha is an idyllic town on the banks of river Betwa in Tikamgarh district of Madhya Pradesh. First of all thanks to all the reviews on Trip Advisor because of which we chose to stay at Orchha Homestay. We stayed with Mukesh & Family. The food prepared by the family was simple and tasty.It was totally a different experience. Different... More

One of the remarkable experiences of my trip. Getting to know from so up close the life of an indian family in the village was invaluable to me. Cozy little rooms, impeccably clean. The silence of the forest, the night birds singing, had such a great night's sleep. The people working on the project showed me around the village too... More

That's precisely our aim - to let our visitors experience life in an Indian family of small farmers, artisans and daily wage workers. The discovery works both ways - our host families have discovered other cultures and particularly more equal male-female relationships through the guests who stay with them. The benefits have been both economic and cultural! Thanks so much... More

Little to add to the previous reviews except support. This is a really good concept well executed. My family were lovely. Would stay again if I return to Orchha. Note that it is a 1-2km walk from Orchha Town, but this was not a problem. Perhaps the only thing that could be improved was the directions when arriving from Jhansi... More

We'll be happy to welcome you on your next visit. Glad you liked your host family. Thanks also for your suggestion for improvement - we'll put directions to the home-stay on our web-site.

On 3rd of December 20013 there was a very enjoyable 10th birthday party for Kanchan, a most delightful little girl who is the small sister of Anjuna who is in charge of cleaning the rooms at Orchha Home Stay.

Good to hear from you, Nick. Like Kanchan's birthday party, the home-stay has become very international. In 2012-13 we received 882 guests of 26 different nationalities. And you'll be happy to know that we are going to build a new room at Anjana's house which will bring the total to 9 rooms. So next time you come there'll be plenty... More

Your review is heart warming for us and your host family too! Thanks for your wonderful appreciation and for the detailed description of the neighbourhood in which the home-stay is situated. Reviews like yours will certainly help our attempt at securing a livelihood for the host families all of whom were below poverty line before they participated in the home-stay.... More
