Reviewed January 29, 2008

Found this place on the Incredible India website in the gold category of B&B. Travelling as a family of 4 adults, we needed 2 bedrooms, and so I opted for this sort of homestay accommodation (trying to keep the cost down at the same time).

Having confirmed the booking, I discovered that breakfast was charged as extra! But perhaps that was because I got a 20% discount for staying 4 nights and they were trying to recoup the 'discount'.

The place is very tired and in need of serious updating. The website pix do not bear resemblance to actual. A tiny sitting area, two bedrooms, one with creaking bed every time you turn over.

There's no room to swing a cat, and you have to walk through one bedroom to reach the shabby bathroom with filthy shower curtain. Dodgy old wiring (my son's rather expensive NEW camera recharger and my NEW ipod recharger stopped working after we stayed there). A very old fan heater supplied in one of the bedrooms.

On the plus side, the owners were helpful; they recommended a local taxi and we ended up using the driver for 3 days. They also told us where to go to get a bag repaired, phoned ahead to the shop to check its opening hours, and instructed the driver on where to take us.

The real gem in this place is Hari, the houseman who attends to all your needs - making 'bed tea', breakfast and delicious evening snacks (his French fries are to be recommended). He is always smiling and cheerful.

Be careful how many slices of toast your order - when we settled our bill, we discovered that we were charged per slice!
