“A welcoming, comfortable, peaceful haven on the outskirts of the city”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This is one of the modern gems of India and a delightful place to stay - for a few days or a few weeks. We received a warm welcome from Mr. Damodaran and his family. We were shown to what the name of the property says, a rooftop retreat. It is close to being a self-contained apartment ideally suited to a couple. It is comfortable and homely, providing an excellent base from which to explore the city and surrounding area while also being a place that would be delightful should there be a day when it rains. In addition, the family can provide excellent local-style meals at very fair prices. It provides everything one could want, and is almost worth travelling to India for just to relax in.

“Experience a suburban home in Mysore”
Reviewed 18 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This is a delightful homestay in Mysore. We planned it well before arriving, and Divya corresponded promptly, organising for us to be picked up from the train station. Her house is in an area we would never have otherwise discovered, in suburban Mysore, and it was very safe to walk around in. The whole second floor of her home is for 2 guests, with everything provided for a self catered and private stay. It was very, very hot, with just fans for keeping cool. Divya organised for an auto-rickshaw to take us around during the day, and she and her family are delightfully friendly and helpful. Meals included were delicious.

“What a great place”
Reviewed 21 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We loved Mysore, and we loved this apartment. We hadn't realised it was a whole apartment, and after a week of moving around, it was blissful to be able to spread out in so much space. The rooftop terrace is great, too. In fact the place is bigger than our flat in London! Recommend eating here too, for dinner as well as breakfast. Nivya and her mother were very kind and helpful, as was Babu, their recommended rickshaw driver. Don't be put off that it is little further out of town, the neighbourhood is really nice and it's no time in a tuk tuk.

“Comfortable stay with a lovely family”
Reviewed 27 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We received a warm welcome when we arrived at Rooftop Retreat. The unit was roomy, comfortable and very clean. There was a menu to select food for breakfast and dinner. All the meals were absolutely delicious and arrived at a time we requested. Anything asked of Nivya and her family was never a problem and they were always very helpful and obliging. The village atmosphere was interesting and the local people friendly. I was sad to leave the family but hope to return again one day in the future. Thank you Nivya and family for a wonderful stay.

“Airy, fresh and lovely room”
Reviewed 13 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We weren't expecting to have a whole apartment to stay in - it was great! Sitting area with a TV, bedroom with space for all your 'stuff' and a large kitchenette and dining area, plus separate shower and WC..... and all of it super- clean, airy and fresh. There is a large roof terrace too. It was nice to be a short rickshaw trip out of the main town - there are some lovely houses in this area and everyone was very friendly. Delicious home cooking - we didn't eat out at all. Delightful hosts, very friendly and helpful and organised a sightseeing tour for us that was a great day out. Could not reccomend this Guesthouse highly enough!
