Thanks so much to Yamini and her family for giving me a wonderful send-off from India.

From the moment I arrived, they welcomed me completely into their family, letting me tag along with them on their Saturday outing... showing me the local sights, and generally enjoying the weekend.

Their house is beautiful, with the kitchen at the centre of everything... mealtimes were a great opportunity to share experiences and delicious food- Yamini is a great chef and hostess.

Thanks again for everything.

Dear Emma ,

A huge thanks for the time and effort taken to write this review .

They say better late than never ... thanks to the season rush , getting some free time 'now' to be able to post my response .

We loved having you over ... and I am thoroughly enjoying the goody bag you left behind !

Wish to host you for a longer stay ... why not give us a few more days the next time you are back here ... hopefully by then we'll have another Bed and Breakfast in Goa !!!

Much love and hugs -

Words cannot properly express the wonderful time I had at Villa Camelot during my week-long stay in Bangalore. Yamini and her family welcomed me warmly from the time I arrived until the time I left. Their lovely home is far from city centre, but it was certainly the oasis I needed after a grueling travel schedule in Asia. I was able to relax, put my feet up and did some much needed R&R. The food was great (I miss the chai!); the rooms clean and comfortable. I watched the 2012 Summer Olympics in the wonderful TV room and read books that Yamini lent to me. She was kind enough to let me hog her computer since mine was broken. She and her husband helped me navigate the logistical nightmares of the railway station, getting a local sim card, etc, etc. I felt like part of the family. Hopefully, when I returned to India again, I will stay here again. I recommend this place to every and anyone, through and through.

Villa Camelot was one of the best experiences I had in my month in India. Yamini's home is spotless, welcoming and beautiful, and Yamini herself is a reliable and warm host and friend. She and Ragu will cook up a storm in their kitchen for guests, too. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Krishna is a great room

Stayed for 3 months in the Tulsi room while on an assignment with SAP. Would highly recommend to anyone, especially to professionals who want to come back "home" after a long day at the office.

The villa is conveniently located relatively close the the airport and the Whitefield IT parks; a bit further down from the downtown area/train/bus stations.

The room, just like the rest of the property, was well maintained and kept spotless clean; equipped with basic furniture including a bed, large wardrobe, bedside tables and a ceiling fan (never felt the need for AC). The only thing I missed a little was a work desk.

The food was very good, musli, fruits, variety of eggs with some Indian for breakfast; and mainly veg north indian for dinner. I also enjoyed "european" style fresh salads.

The hospitality is just amazing. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and are ready to help you out with just about anything, be it your travel arrangements or shopping.

Room Tip: The Tulsi is just fine. You may want to go for Krishna during the summer or if you want your own pri...

I recommended my Dutch friends to stay here. They are more than satisfied. I am more than glad for recommending a clean, warm, cozy, homely place to stay in busy bangalore. I have already recommended other friends too. Guess this sums it all up ! As a business person, I find this double the value for my money. And the warmth extended by Yamini & Raghu along with their sweet little kids is priceless! Don't trust me until you experience it yourself!

Room Tip: try krishna!

I've stayed in all sorts of places in India and Villa Camelot is certainly one of the best. The food is excellent, the hosts very hospitable who make you part of the family immediately, the rooms large and clean, hot water etc

You eat dinner with the others so it gives you a chance to get to know other guests as well as Yamini and Raghu and the culture.

My gf arrived the day before I did and she spent the day with Yamini without feeling like a burden at all. In fact, it greatly enhanced her experience of getting in touch with Indian way of life. They also helped organise a car for us when we needed to leave. We also managed to leave some washing behind which they kindly couriered to the address we sent them.

I cannot recommend enough as THE place to stay in Bangalore.
