“Most Dependable Homestay of the Most Knowledgeable Guide”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I first contacted Ramesh Suyal of Tigers in Corbett on 23rd Feb 2016 requesting him to arrange for our pick up at 2040 on 26th May from Ramnagar railway station , accommodation in his homestay on that night and next day morning safari at Jhirna zone of Jim Corbett National Park . Not only I received prompt affirmative answer from him , but whenever he wanted to have additional information he did not hesitate to call me . ( i e he never bothered for spending money on making a call to his client to provide better services to her ) .
We were damn pleased to see the swanky car he sent to receive us . The driver was also very polite . Thus Rameshji won the second round before we met .
The car stopped at a small nondescript tenement house called Sparrow Nest . we were shown our room by Rameshji . It was a clean , nice and well furnished room with attached sparkingly clean and big rest room .
The dinner was sumptuous . Rameshji’s wife was busy with preparing rotis , his daughter was serving us . It was a truly homely affair .
Next day when we returned from the Safari guided by Rameshji , we had our breakfast of stuffed paneer parothas . Vaijayanti doesn’t like milk products and though the dinner had two vegetables , both of them had prominent paneer . So Vaijayanti ate only Dal and rice . Therefore when she was served paneer parotha she requested could see get plain parotha Rameshji wife immediately satisfied her wish .
This is not the complaint . This was mentioned to explain just how responsive Rameshji’s family is .
Though I had booked my jungle stay and safaris at Bijarani and Dhikala from another agency earlier , I was so impressed by Rameshji’s hospitality , professionalism and guiding acumen I enquired him whether he would arrange for us such services in future , he promised me to look after our every need and provide well trained guides to us .
I was highly impressed when he told me that he took a loan of Rs 3,00,000 /- to expand his home to make a homestay and repaid the loan within 3 years , setting an example to his brother and friends how to earn more money without migrating elsewhere .
Rameshji , his brother and his friends who are part of Tigers in Corbett are there to welcome us whole heartedly to their kingdom where they are going to treat us as Royals , so without any hesitation pl contact Rameshji and frequently visit his homestay Sparrow Nest and Jim Corbett N P .

“Average home stay; good safaris”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

I had traveled to Corbett National Park with my family in the Holi break. We reached early, and were shown our room. We wasted our evening just sitting in this room, as he had apparently not planned anything for us that evening. There was no TV in the room to kill time.

Point to be noted: Talk to Mr Ramesh Suyal about what you are going to do everyday of your trip.

We went on a safari next day in the afternoon. On the third day, we were taken on a safari in the morning. The best part of our stay was obviously the safaris. Mr Suyal also took us around to the local barrage, a temple and the Corbett Museum at an extra cost of Rs 1500, which we thought was quite steep for a few hours of site-seeing. My bad, as I did not negotiate anything with him in advance. He asked and I paid. This is what I paid for 2 and a half days:

Pick up and drop from Indirapuram to his home stay: Rs 13000
2 safaris and 2 days meal: Rs 16000

Positives about the trip:

It was a relaxing trip
The safaris were really nice

Negatives:
As we never had experienced a home stay before, we did not know what to expect. There was a lack of privacy as the family shares the same floor as the guests. We had to tell them what we wanted to eat. At certain points it was embarrassing, asking for food when you were hungry after a safari. We thought the home stay could have been run more professionally.

Dear Mrs Sarbani Mandal,
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your safari experience but are sorry to hear that you did not feel the same about our homestay.
As we are a small, family-run homestay, we treat our guests as an extension of our family and would not recommend our homestay for those seeking complete privacy. At the same time, if guests wish to spend time in their rooms, we happily respect their wishes. Our homestay provides an escape from the noise of the city and does not have TVs; we instead hope that our guests will enjoy our company, the surrounding birdlife and the quiet.
Regarding the organising of tours, safaris and activities, we will endeavour to communicate options more clearly to guests in the future and will most certainly be even more conscientous about making sure guests do not go hungry at any time during their stay!
We appreciate your feedback.
Kind regards,
Ramesh Suyal

“Excellent base for visiting Corbett NP”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The Sparrow Nest is very much a home stay with good en-suite guest rooms. Ramesh and his wife are first rate hosts who go out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable. The home cooked food is simple but really tasty and the morning tea is divine.

Ramesh organised three half day safaris, and elephant ride and a bespoke day birding for us and we were delighted with all of them. There was no hassle, no last minute panics and we paid exactly what we agreed at booking. The only extra amount was tips for guides and driver which were not solicited but were well earned.

““Beautiful Stay. Incredible hospitality. 😊””
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed at this location for 2 nights. To be honest, I was apprehensive in the beginning but as it turned out, it was a good decision to put up in this home stay. It is managed by Rameshji (Award winning guide in Jim Corbett National park). Hosts and hospitality is heartwarming with finger licking scrumptious food. No stone is left unturned by Rameshji and his family to leave us with a baggage full of experience, only to step again on this beautiful land.

“Home away from home with the best hospitality”
Reviewed 7 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We went with a group of 4 friends last month. One of the friends made the overall booking with Ramesh ji.
Ramesh ji runs the homestay and was very courteous and polite. He is very knowledgeable about birds species etc.
Regarding homestay, the food tbeing served was homely and very delicious. The rooms were very spacious and clean. The terrace was also huge and good place for all of us.
The overall stay was very enjoyable. Undoubtedly, it is a home stay with a perfect idea of home away from home.

I would highly recommend the place.
