The property is beautiful, but rooms need more cleaning. There is a central hall, which has layers of dust on the artefacts, seating is so uncomfortable. The food is very delicious &quantity is also large. Service staff and the hostess are very very helpful.

This is a wonderful homestay surrounded by trees and nature, away from the noise of the city proper. I went there with the honourable VC of St. Xavier's University, Rev. Fr. Dr. John Felix Raj, S.J., who was to deliver a lecture at Parasmani on Saturday, 16 December. We had dinner there on Friday night and breakfast on Saturday morning. We had requested for a continental platter which was masterfully prepared. The combination of ingredients and flavours we were served wasn't something we had experienced before, but the taste was absolutely unparalleled. Mrs. Sukanya Roy, who runs the establishment, is very amicable and was especially observant to the palates and preferences of each guest. We had both vegetarian and non-vegetarian members, and she made sure to provide different and equally exquisite dishes for both groups. Overall, we were very pleased with the ambience of the place, the quality of service and the taste of the dishes, and will definitely return if the opportunity arises.

We loved the place & I thoroughly enjoyed the tribal lunch that I had chosen! My brother found his choice of vegetarian menu very delectable! The staff was kind and courteous. Am thankful to Mitali & Sukanya for their hospitality and prompt response on WhatsApp

We escaped from the hustle and bustle of the city for the weekend and found a abode of peace at Mitali Homestay- A warm cozy place perfect for relaxation and rejuvenation. Everything was perfect- the host, the yummy food, the delicious mangoes from the mango trees of the well maintained garden and not to forget my son's favourite friends. The Cats-MILLI, BALI and the kitten-KITTY!

We have been to the place 4 times during the last one year and are planning for a fifth visit. It is our favourite place for a peaceful, cosy and leisurely stay. Neat, clean, green and serene ambience covering no less than 2-2.5 acres of land; a rustic looking central home, a green lawn, beautiful restaurant house, two cottages and some other rooms and many trees; close to Shyambati but away from city noises. The cottage rooms are comfortable, spacious; tastefully furnished and decorated; a good stock of books covering various subjects and tastes; the front varanda is a reminiscence of a charm, lost long back; sitting there with a book and a cup of coffee will make your day. Delicious food of varied cuisine - Indian, Chinese, Continental, Mughlai and others. I had the unique experience of tasting traditional dishes prepared with uncommon ingredients, vegetables and spices. One can have a wide variety of evening snacks as well. Home made jams and pickles of beautiful taste and flavour are also available with food and for purchase. It is interesting to have a homemade sweet dish of wonderful taste after every meal. Madam Sukanya Roy runs the entire arrangement starting from kitchen, food, marketing, lodging arrangements with only 6-7 local ladies trained and guided by herself. She is a courteous person with incredible ability and great creative and aesthetic sense. The restaurant has earned a name in the locality and to the tourists who visit Shantiniketan. Besides her own guests, a lot of guests from other hotels, home-stays used to come to her restaurant in search of delicious food. I gave het contact to a group of special people for dinner and breakfast there. They all had praises for her. In the end, it is a bit costly but given the comfort peace, ambience, taste and service they provide, it is quite reasonable.

The only place to sray in Shantiniketan. It was fabulous. The cottages were very spacious and could easily accommodate 4 people. The cottages have small dining tables in the attached verandah, and one thcould eat there with a view of nature ..The dining hall is very nice with a variety of cuisines and the vegetables are freshly grown in the farm. The proprietor Mitali and Krishnendu are very hospitable and Mitali is a wonderful cook who will make any kind of food that one desires to eat, from local tribal cuisines to Italian and Middle Eastern. In fact even tourists who do not stay here come to this place for meals.

I've been a regular at Mitali, our favourite homestay. We have known Sukanya and Krishno Da for years now, so that they are like family. You cannot hope for a place that is more serene, green, sophisticated yet where you feel completely at home. The ambience of this stately old home is fantastic as is its large lawn and gardens. The food and its menus, curated and cooked by Sukanya is an exceptional dining experience. Quite often, most of the vegetables and fruits are grown on the Mitali garden itself. I stay in Santiniketan and this place is a quick getaway with my friends and family. I recommend Mitali to every single one of my friends visiting from outside. Go, stay, pamper yourself!

Mitali is second home! Everything is so homelike and comforting! Food is of course excellence per se! Sukanya is the perfect host beyond anyone's imagination. Like icing on the cake, her boutique and shopping from there is additional bonus to shantiniketan trip.
