“Nice B&B”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Booked this after looking at all the reviews and had high expectations. It's a well-maintained home with rooms to spare. Rooms are neat. Location is a bit tricky...one is bound to lose ones way particularly if going late evenings. Service is bare minimum as there are only a couple of hands and we are told they leave by late evening. Yes it's B&B, but it would be good if there were some arrangements to have basic lunch/dinner particularly if one is unwell/has small children, as this place is far even from a decent restaurant. Would have been good if Breakfast had more variety....However, Mrs & Mr. Rajbansh are warm and take care of your needs.

Stayed in Garden Villa, this only being my 4th day in India I had not experienced such a peaceful place, it was lovely being away from the hussle and bussle, There is only a few rooms, these several are all of a good size, have a tv, a/c unit, and large bathroom. Wifi is available through most parts of the hotel I had full signal in my room "Hibiscus". Really comfy bed and my shower was lovely and hot :)

I had a lovely breakfast, lovely freshly squeezed juice, as much toast and honey as I wanted and an Omlette. The owner seemed very kind and made us feel very welcome.

I would definitely stay here again.

There was no room service whatsoever, the breakfast was Omlette toast and Real orange juice, on asking for towels we were made to wait on the pretext that there may not be any more towels, Mr Rajbansh misguided us to leave early to Delhi on the Holi celebration day stating that people pelt stones on Yamuna Highway, bullcrap!

The whole place seems to be out there to thug you in one way or the other. Be on guard and cross verify everything these people tell you.

Room Tip: Dont stay here

I have stayed at Garden Villa many times and it was the obvious choice of where to take my group when in Agra... Mr Rajbansh has a lovely home and pretty gardens which he opens to guests. All 7 of the rooms are of a nice size, have a tv, a/c unit, and large bathroom. Wifi is available free of charge in the dining area. If you get the chance to have dinner there you must, his wife cooks a lovely meal for a small charge. Visiting the Taj is only about 10 minutes away but you are out of the hustle and grime of the city in a nice quiet residential area. I shall be returning next year with another group... thank you once again for another comfortable stay! Andrea

This was a lovely sight to see! After the crazy sounds of the Indian roads, this was like a mini tranquil paradise!
A group of 13 of us turned up, were all shown what villa we'd be staying in and then followed the smell of home-cooked food for the evening. The room was very spacious. The double room had a big bed, a seating area and TV and bathroom. We also had space outside our room to sit overlooking a lovely green garden!
We only stayed a night to do the Safari the next morning.
Our stay was very pleasant and the staff were very lovely and accommodating.

Arriving at the homestay we had a fantastic warm welcome off the owners and staff, the smell of home cooked food wafted out of the kitchen area and we were taken to our spacious rooms.

The rooms have wardrobes, seats for leisurely reading, large beds with crisp clean linen. There is wifi access available at request of password and even with 13 in our party the connection remained strong.

Food was just delicious with a lovely vegetarian variety. Potatoes, coconut balls and several other dishes for the evening meal and breakfast was beautifully filling with toast, omelet, tea, coffee and fruit juice.

Situated away from the main centre the area is very tranquil set in its own small garden and off the beaten track which allows for a peaceful night sleep.
