We were attended by a very gentle and kind grandmother who made delicious dinner and breakfast at our request and was very accommodative....

“From the entrance, left side room is more spacious, suitable for a couple with a kid. The second room is good enough for a couple.”

“The location is down a beautiful lane where one can walk with pleasure. I got the feeling people are friendly and honest. NB: It seems that the town centres are very "Indian", and elegant homes and shops are down lanes!”
