Mrs.Bandari is 98 or more now. She still runs the hotel in Amristar. I never got to see the lady as she was sick while I stayed there.
This is small hotel of about 10 rooms in a secluded compound with a lovely garden to walk around. It is located out of town but not far away. The atomosphere is one very relaxed and lazy days.
As soon you enter the main gate you are welcommed by a this unusal scene - a group of Indian buffalos munching their lunch in the stable ! I wondered where on earth have I been booked into by my travel agent. It turned out the main enterance is on the rear side of the house/hotel where the stable is.
The room was very spacious. They are maintaining the rooms in such a way to maintain old world ambience or everything is simply old. I do not know. But I liked it. The bathroom was large with very old bath tub and sink. However it was of functioning order.
There is a small swimming cold water pool on the side. Will be good in the summer. But in winter the water is too cold to enjoy.
The small walled garden is just enough to walk around and relax. The garden was well maintained and manicured.
They do basic breakfast like Omlette and toast.
We stayed there for one night. The whole experience was like visiting your grandma - that was the ambience of the Mrs.Bandari's house.
Nice place to stay if you like a quiet place.
