“Relaxing, peaceful, better than staying in a 5 star”
Reviewed May 21, 2011

On a recent trip to India we had planned to visit the Golden Temple and wanted to book a five star hotel, but there was only one in Amritsar and only expensive suites were available the night we were to be there. So my friend in Delhi googled around and found this hidden gem. At first we were not sure what to expect given that this property wasn't even listed as a hotel but was charging 5 star rates and there were no reviews.

We decided to give it a chance and am glad we did. This place is more of a homestay / farmstay and all meals were included in the tariff so actually worked out to be a better deal than a 5 star. There was no extra charge for our 4 year old son, and a convenient sofa bed in the room meant no rolling in extra beds.

Quaint Indian haveli setting with a courtyard, lots of open space and fruit trees. We plucked delicious plums that were in season and enjoyed them thoroughly. There was even a play area (swings and slide) where our son played with the owners son and kept happy. Room interiors and washrooms are modern and very clean and comfortable. But took a while to figure out how to operate the shower knobs (water at this time tends to be a little warm during the day so I thought I had turned the hot water tap).

We were only there for 1 day and had to visit the Golden Temple and Wagah Border so didn't get a chance to try out any farm activities other than strolling through the orchard.

Sometimes Indian food can be overwhelming when you're not very used to it. This place had good home cooked food and lavish but not spicy and not oily at all. Though did they have lot of extra fixins like farm grown chillies and home made pickels. Normally we don't eat salad in India but here we got fresh cucumbers, tomatoes and green onions plucked from the organic vegetable garden and had them cut right in front of us. We had dinner together with the owners and chatted with them till late in the night.

Overall an excellent stay ... should be good fun to go there in the winter when its not so hot.
