Tree Tops is a lovely B&B in a home located in a convenient area, featuring beautiful furnishings and top-notch food. Tannie and Murad were helpful hosts, giving us a ride with them into town on our first day, arranging transportation, etc., which was very much appreciated.
Although we had been very much looking forward to the cooking courses, however, the inquiry that we made on the first day was unfortunately never followed up on. This was likely due to the fact that Tannie had caught a cold during our stay, which I obviously have no complaint with. Given the fact that at least two e-mail inquiries regarding the cooking course made prior to our visit were also never acknowledged, however (and that no concrete information regarding the courses is provided on the website), I was led to wonder whether they ever would have materialized even had Tannie not been ill.
It was also rather unsettling when Tannie less-than-subtly indicated on more than one occasion that my partner and I should hurry up and leave the table so that she and her husband could sit and eat with the other, clearly preferred guests. (It was unclear why there were only four chairs provided at the enormous table, which could have easily accommodated the eight persons staying in the house). We had apparently incurred Tannie's ill will because of having asked for a small space heater for our room (we visited Delhi the week where it recorded its coldest winter temperatures in over 50 years, and we were staying downstairs in the study, which was dark and cold). Or perhaps we fell on her bad side after she realized that we were a same-sex couple. Whatever the reason, it was disappointing to witness such blatant favoritism at a B&B promising a welcoming sort of "stay in our home" experience.
Most guests seem to enjoy their stay here, and we did in fact enjoy many aspects of our own, including the opportunity to chat with many other lovely travelers. In the interest of full disclosure, however, I am including the unsavory experiences along with the positive.
