We enjoyed our stay here in a huge bedroom with a huge bed! The food was wonderful ,very tasty and served in a homely way. The balconies were great with views over the gardens which attracted a variety of birds including the resident little owls, so sweet! We took our own beer to enjoy on the balcony in the evenings....

A nice place to rest quietly but also to discover Assam thanks to the advice of Sheila and Mahesh.

Sheila, the proprietor of the homestay and her husband are welcoming hosts. She was a history professor and is very knowledgeable about the history of the North East of India. Their establishment is comfortable, clean and homely. The cooking is sublime. I'd thoroughly recommend this place as its quiet and away for he hustle and bustle of the noisy town.

The hosts Mrs. and Mr. Bora are very welcoming and veg food was good. But, the dinner was Rs.650/- per plate even for the children!! So, just for dinner for 2 adults and 2 kids, we had to pay Rs.2600/- in cash since they don't accept cards. Very spacious and green property and has birds and Rabbit as pets.

Dear Mr. Tawakar, Thankyou very much for your review. I am sorry you found the price of the meals too expensive. Since we are a very small Homestay and cater only to order it is not possible for us to cancel at the last moment. Perhaps you are not aware that the Travel agents who had done your booking with...

Jungle travels India, that organized our trip to the tribal areas, suggested this property and we loved it. Mrs. Bora, the owner, was enchanting and the staff very friendly. Food excellent. It was a perfect place after a long flight coming from Canada. Certainly, we will stay here when we come back again to the North East.

This is our second visit to North East, earlier in Nov 2013, we had visited Nagaland for Horn Bill festival. Guwahati is the gateway to North East, so this is the best city to stop over.
