You will find no better place to crash-land and regroup, amidst the gauntlet-running of Indian travel. Really more of a shared home than a true B&B, Mysore BnB is welcoming and helpful. If you just need to relax, there'd be no loss in hanging around the house, leaving the premises only for occasional dosa around the corner, or for the... More

We stayed two nights at Mysore Bed and Breakfast. Manjula and Stephen were welcoming hosts and made us feel like their home was our home. Manjula's cooking was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed Stephen's cycle tours (see separate review).

I feel so guilty! I've been so slow in responding to reviews. In my defence we've been so busy. Unusually this year we've been busy right up until the end of March. It's now break time as its the quietest month of the year. It was lovely to meet you and really enjoyed our cycle tour together, even though it's... More

This was our first time in India, and it was great to have such welcoming and helpful hosts! Great tips of places to visit in Mysore and help booking trains, and navigating Indian bureaucracy. A fairly basic but very comfortable room and shared bathroom, and great cooking.

Was very much looking forward to returning to Mysore B&B after a very enjoyable visit last year. Certainly wasn't disappointed and extended my stay by a couple of nights to 9, to continue to enjoy the warm hospitality of Manjula and Stephen.

Manjula's and Stephens's house is nicely kept and situated a little bit outside of the centre of town. But it is well connected and with Stephen's clear instructions easily to find. Both provide a warm atmosphere, a lot of information, excellent food and are certainly a highlight of Mysore. We have enjoyed our stay there a lot and can only... More

I felt very fortunate to have found this comfortable home for my Mysore get-away. Steve and Manjula are knowledgable about the area, provide tasty breakfasts (and often dinners) and the spacious home is filled with fascinating Indian artifacts.

I stayed with Steve and Manjula at Mysore B&B as my first stop after landing in Bangalore. Steve was very responsive over email beforehand and I found it easy to get there.

Having plenty of communal space was also important to us, so that people could choose to mix or not and find quieter areas, and this year's lovely roof garden.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You are very much sharing my home when you stay at the BnB. Search, find us, its easy and you'll not be disappointed. We live in a quietish residential area, ten minutes in auto rickshaw, from the Palace at the centre of Mysore. We have a lounge, sun terrace, WiFi. There are four double bedrooms and lots of communal living space to meet our other guests. I'm Stephen, an English guy who's settled here five years ago and set up the bnB three years back with Manjula, the one who holds it all together! We provide a good breakfast usually toast, scrambled egg, mushrooms, fruit, tea/coffee or Indian breakfast by arrangement and a big favourite is Manjula's home cooking. We can advise on the best bits of wonderful Mysore and the surrounding area to suit your wishes and help with your continuing trip. We do believe that its the people that 'make the place' and we love making great new friends from our wonderfully diverse visitors. We also offer guided cycle tours. Check MyCycle also on trip advisor. ... more   less
