“Backpacker's home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Only a short distance from the main village, this peaceful and inviting home-away-from-home had so much to offer a single traveler like myself. Upon arriving I was guided to a beautiful room with a marble balcony and a front seat view of the garden/terrace. As for the food...BEST HOTEL FOOD ever. The food is made to order and served to you in your room, the outdoor dinning room or in the garden. I highly recommend the fruit salads, gulab jamun, egg-parathas, and the Thali (a must!!!), if you're lucky...the cook may even surprise you with his famous rice pudding!!! Last but not least, over the 6-7 days that I spent there the staff really became my second family. Whether it be a simple greeting every time I arrived at the hotel, friendly conversations in the garden, or jokes and laughing in the evening over drinks and chai, the staff was one of the best on my whole journey through India. I made friendships that will last a lifetime! The hotel had the best of all worlds: Indian flavor, nature, peace, family! And... I must not forget...you can always sneak up to the roof-top to get in a few sun salutations as the sun rises at the start of the day!!!

I stayed at this hotel for three weeks and was impressed with the value. The room was large with a veranda overlooking a garden. There was a new soni TV. The staff will bring you chai or coffee to your room or the garden restaurant. Breakfast omlette was tasty. Good nan and capote and we liked the yogurt and honey. Each room has a bathroom. The shower is a bit primitive but the hot water was plentiful. There was no maid service but the staff would clean the room and change the bed upon request. We had a yogi every morning for a yoga class on the roof. You can also have a massage. Prices are very cheap by American standards. If you go there, say hello to Raj. Tell him Bonnie says hello. For a reasonable tour guide we had a great experience with Ravi Soni.

Room Tip: Room 105 was good. This hotel is away from the city so noise is not an issue.

The rooms were extreamly cold. Got extra blanket by asking.
As it's very rare to have warm water in a shower India we highly appreciated as here we could have a warm shower and could finally have a wash :)

The room was quite dirty, had to return the towels as they were dirty as we first got them. It smelled of cigarettes in the room.

The hotel was quite far away from the town.
The garden of the hotel was pretty.

Food that you could buy from the restaurant was ok. Portions were a bit small.

Staff was ok, not too aggressively trying to serve you all the time.

Hotel was very nice and quite, with a beautiful small garden. Food was also very good. Shower did not work (not enough water pressure). Staff is friendly but they will try to talk you into hiring a very expensive tuk tuk and a VERY expensive guide at the temples. I fell for that one... my fault.

When we arrived we got shown to a spartan room on the first floor. The shower head did not work if lifted above waist height, useless. The hallway is all marble floor but echoes enormously and when someone down the hall shut their door it sounded as if it was in our room. On top of this the hotel is the only thing on the street and well out of the centre of Khajuraho. Really not well located at all. There is nothing alse to do in the area. We had arrived early in the morning after a long train trip, tried to sleep a couple of hours and then moved to a hotel in town where at least you can walk around in the evening and not have to get a taxi back to the hotel. The staff were understanding though and very polite.
