We stayed 2 nights at the Mysore BnB with Stephen and Manjula on our way back to Bangalore and my only wish is that we would have stayed longer. We were welcomed very nicely, had a tour of the place and then sat down in the living room and chatted with Stephen (a wealth of knowledge about Mysore) while relaxing from our 4 hour car ride. He played with our almost 2 year old (who LOVED him and doesn't take to just anyone) and it felt like we had arrived at family's house. Stephen gave us great recommendations for shopping and food (we wanted to make sure we didn't get sick on our last couple days in India) and all places were excellent. We slept vey well in our room and woke up to have a delicious western breakfast prepared by Manjula (quite a nice break after 3 weeks of Indian food). Manjula also made us Indian dinner that night and even made the exact same meal without spice for our almost 2 year old- so nice! The neighborhood is residential and very safe. We loved Mysore and the BnB and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Mysore.
