Having spent our fair share of time in hotels in India where we experienced no hot water, unclean facilities, people trying to rip us off and general rudeness, Vinayak Guesthouse was a breath of fresh air!
Greeted by Raman with the hugest smile, we felt like we were coming home and made to feel so welcome by him and his family. The decoration in the hotel was excellent, many of the traditional Indian murals had been painted by Raman's sister and the rooms were spacious and clean with lovely hot water showers!!
The food in the restaurant was delicious and home made - they do the best banana lassi you will find. But what impressed us the most was the time Raman took to give us a map, explain the best itinerary for us, how not to get ripped off by the rickshaw drivers and how much we should pay for things and where the Indians do their shopping.
I would recommend this hotel without a doubt to any one, as you can rely on Raman and his family being the most decent and honest people in India - a very rare thing indeed!
