Places to stay in Santiniketan
The self-sufficient apartment is conveniently located, a stone's throw away both from the famous Ashram and the Sonajhuri Haat. It is very near to the Prantik Railway station. Secluded amidst soothing greenery and a lush garden, it is ideal for a weekend getaway, with all the modern amenities, including ATM and market right at its door.
The upper floor bedroom comes with an attached bathroom and private sitting/breakfast area, which the guests can use exclusively. It also has a small kitchen area that they can use for preparing meals. The bedroom opens to the terrace which the guests can also use.
Basudhara is very close to the Shantiniketan Ashram and Viswa Bharati university. The Khowai and Sonajhuri forest is also close at hand. Popular tourist and religious attraction Tarapith is an hour’s drive from the place. Bolpur town can be reached within half an hour.
  • Sparkling clean place. Having a cup of tea on the terrace at the early morning with birds chirping everywhere is an enchanting experience. The beauty of the home is praiseworthy.

  • The location at Syambati market is perfect for anyone who wants to visit Santiniketan. Rabindra Bhavan is about a 10 minute walk away. The hosts are very kind and Chaitali was always available over messaging/phone if we had difficulties with the communication (I only speak English and no Bangla). The deer park is right at the house and Amat Kurti isn’t far either. I’ll definitely stay there again if I go to Santiniketan again.

  • Very pretty house amidst a beautiful garden. My spouse and I enjoyed our morning teas in the shade of the trees with the chirping of birds. Situated away from the busier town area, which was perfect for us. Perfect for those who don't mind a 5-7 minute's commute to the central part of town. Totos are readily available. Rinku is a great host, always available via sms/app messenger. Will love to come back.

    Moumita2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • A clean quiet space with all the basic amenities provided. Sujit, the caretaker is helpful and a good cook and Rinku is always reachable. The lake nearby, Shyor Bithi is an added attraction.

    Bidisha2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Well maintained, very calm and tranquil place, bird chirping is added bonus.Thanks Rinku

    Goutam2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The place is much better than what it seems from the pictures. The locality is nice and calm—a perfect place to spend some quality time.

    Avideep2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Rinku’s house is beautiful with a flourishing garden, a very peaceful setting. She has great communication and the housekeeper and his wife are very helpful too.

Hospitality of the caretaker sujit was also very good. His wife and he made delicious cook for us. Would like to visit again. & Thanks to Rinku madam also.

    Tufan2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet and calm place... perfect for unwinding yourself while being at Home!

    Anindya2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Santi indeed - a calm, tranquil bungalow. Rinku was helpful with general questions. Sujit-da was incredibly kind as a caretaker of the home and an amazing cook! He obliged to help prepare meals with the special diet I am currently on, which can be tricky in Bengal. This is slightly away from the bustle of the Santiniketan city center, but I prefer that and wanted to stay in this area. It is near a gorgeous nearby pond/park and still easily accessible to nearby markets. A cozy getaway in the heart of nature, calm and soothing.

    Syambati, West Bengal, India

    My place is most centrally located yet sounds of falling leaves and chirping of birds is what you hear. Walking distance to Viswa Bharati University . You’ll love my place because of the views, the ambiance, the location. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. We provide complimentary breakfast and arrange home cooked food for dinner.
    The red soil walkway turns and curls to disappear into the blur of moist green landscape. Glittering sunshine floods the greenery; smell of fresh air brings a sparkle in your heart. This will reveal the breadth of poetic vision of rural Bengal with amenities of contemporary living. A picture pretty cottage, perfect settings for a break from the daily grind. It has a collection of cozy rooms, hemmed by lawns and flowerbeds. But most of all enjoy the homely service, the chief ingredients for relaxation. Amidst the rustic ambience of Shantiniketan, nature unveils herself and Country Roads captures her beauty in a picturesque frame.
  • Santanu's place was a perfect weekend gateway. The location is perfect,the place is sparkling clean. The house is surrounded by so many trees, it was a breath of fresh air.If you want a break from the fast city life, this is the place. Home made food was also provided which we really enjoyed. I'll definitely recommend this place to the fellow travellers.

    Sudeshna2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay in Shantiniketan on the lap of nature.

  • For a peaceful stay and tasty home cooked food at Shantiniketan, "Country Roads" is the place you want to visit.

    Anirban2019-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience. Amazing location, very serene and hospitable place.

    Aditya2019-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is EXCELLENT! This home stay is beautiful, clean, and centrally located. The best part of this is the entire people. All of the people are so very helpful and accommodating. They go above and beyond to make your stay a pleasant and a memorable one. From the moment I booked our stay they were great. They helped us set up dinner months before we even arrived. Everything went as they promised. I can't say enough good things about this . I look forward to staying with them again and definitely, highly recommend this home stay. I thank them for helping to make our first trip to Santiniketan a great and memorable one.

    Santiniketan, West Bengal, India

    "BONEDI" itself means "elegant" in Bengali. It's a great place for spending some quality time with the original Bengali culture in the land of Tagore. If you want warm hospitality from a true Bengali family,then you've found the right place.
    The place is spacious and airy.
    This place is adjacent to the Santiniketan playground where the Dol utsav takes place and 5 min walking distance from mela ground where the Poush Mela takes place.
  • Bonedi is luxurious and a beautiful house with serene locality. Our host has been really helpful and sweet. We had a great stay!😊

    Sromona2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Bonedi for being home away from home, again! Impeccable as always. Will be back soon 🙂

    Aurko2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We were amazed by the hospitality that was extended to us! The host is truly a Superhost! The location of the house is right within Viswa Bharati campus and easily accessible. The house is very clean and equipped with required amenities. It was truly a memorable experience for us. Looking forward to visiting again. Thank you.

    Niladri2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Soma's place is great for 2. Everything is just right when you stay here. It is always good to inform her in advance about yourself and also order your food in advance. She plans very well and makes sure that you have a comfortable time.

    Rupam2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Great food. No fuss at all.

    Somnath2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The best part of this homestay is it is bounded by Verandahs on all sides. And the cleanliness is of top notch. Our hostess was always there with a smile. The location is apt if you are looking for a serene locality, away from the hustle and bustle. The food served were homecooked with love. The food although was a bit overpriced, specially the breakfast, will make you crave for more. All the best to Bonedi.

    Priyanka2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was an extreme pleasant stay. Hosts were extremely polite and food was really good. I would like to revisit BONEDI and refer it to all my friends who plan to go to Santiniketan.

    Santiniketan, West Bengal, India

    A picture pretty cottage, having collection of cozy rooms, hemmed by lawns and flowerbeds and an open terrace. The private room offered has a queen bed, sheer luxury for a single guest. But most of all enjoy the homely service, the chief ingredients for relaxation. Amidst the rustic ambiance of Shantiniketan, nature unveils herself and Country Roads captures her beauty in a picturesque frame. Ideally located, the home-stay is just few yards walk from Tagore’s Visva-Bharati.
    Adjacent to Visva-Bharati University campus
  • This is a fantastic homestay and complete VFM, as a single woman traveller I felt totally safe. Very pretty, quiet and quaint place. Lovely garden. This single room is located on the first floor, so you have to climb a spiral staircase. It’s a small room with a tiny attached toilet, but it has everything needed for a great stay -a double bed, kettle and tea tray, ample storage and a beautiful view. Towels, soap and shampoo offered. There is a caretaker and her daughter with kids living in the premises, who will cook your Dinner (set meal) provided you give them prior notice. Located right next to Purabpally NCC office. Free cooked breakfast in the morning is a blessing. Small library and lounge is also nice. This place will be my only choice when I visit Shantiniketen again!

    Radhika2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Santanu's place is in the middle of lush greenery and rustic path. It is easy to find as well. One can very well walk from the place to the nearby sports complex or relax in the swing in the garden of the house. The room was small but good for the price and locality. I would recommend this place for a solo traveler. The dinner was really amazing too but a tad-bit expensive, considering the quantity and variety.

    Surabhi2019-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very quiet place,next to the Purbapally NCC office. The ambience is great & if you love tranquility then surely this is a place for you. The house has got a lovely garden & if you want to spend a few hours in the lazy afternoon in the garden,you are most welcome. A little away from all the din & bustle of Shantiniketan, it is only nature ,the birds & you surrounded by silence. The hospitality of the caretaker & his wife will stump you. They will always try to make your stay comfortable. The food is simply mouth watering & delicious. Homely food cooked with utmost love might increase your appetite for those few days. The only problem that I faced with the room which was allotted to me was the size of the bathroom. But when almost everything deserve a 5 star,I hope, single travellers like me might try to manage that problem. Otherwise,a brilliant place to stay alone or with friends & family. Try it out once. I am sure your review will resonate the same sentiment which I am sharing. Thank you Shantanu. Thanks for everything. I will surely come back & this time will request you for a bigger room like Chuti.

    Indranil2018-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautifully decorated and very well located nearby Viswabharati. I enjoyed my stay there. Mr. Shekhar was prompt in replying and communicating the details. However he could not meet me during my stay as he had to go to Kolkata. The caretaker at the place was very supportive and provided all I needed. Will recommend this place, and wish to visit again.

    Borhan2018-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • It was an amazing stay. People at the place were very helpful and thoughtful. I recommend this place to everyone visting Shantiniketan.

    Debika2018-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nestled around lush greens, nice n clean place located amidst the tourist attractions with the availability of local rides in the vicinity that could take you anywhere in town. I really enjoyed my stay here and hope to visit again on my next trip. Staff is cooperative and ensures the safety and cleanliness of the place.

    Mohd2018-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • I liked it. A very convenient spot for new comers. Price are reasonable. Really great hospitality.

  • My first Airbnb stay, it was a great place! My train was delayed by a few hours and the staff was understanding I was able to relax in my room longer while I waited for the train. The owner wasn't there but was super helpful.

  • It was a delight to stay at this place at Amar Bari. It is right across BITM on the Ilambazar-Shantiniketan road, so very easy to locate. The location, environment and the property are superb. Lakshmi di is very nice indeed and took care of all our needs. The place is very quite in a beautiful gated community with good security. Shantiniketan is easily accessible by toto or car. We drove from Kolkata and there is ample parking space inside the campus. The place has a very nice decor, with beautiful local touch. Would love to stay again.

  • Jhuma and Sandip's place was an idyllic experience, set in a beautiful landscaped surrounding. The place was an oasis, just far away from the hubbub of the city, but close enough to get to when needed. All required facilities were available, specially the services of their housekeeper Mr. Biswajit who arranged excellent meals for us, apart from providing all local assistance. We were doubly fortunate to have the hosts as company for a few days. It will make us treasure the memories of this trip for a very long time. Thank you Jhuma Di and Sandip Da. Hope to see you soon.

  • The place is amazing, within the calm and quite serenity of nature. A two.min walk will lead you to Kopai river. The space was cozy and compact with thoughtful touches across the bungalow. Madhav da cooks amazing food. We dropped out plan to have food from outside once we tasted his home cooked meal. Subhash was an amazing host who arranged everything we needed. Just loved it.

  • Sanchaita... Oh! Such a stay I can't forget, a wonderful arrangement by Subhas. Feeling so excited to write the review as if I am revisting the stay again. This homestay is situated at Prantik in Santiniketan, in the premises all the houses are named with the poems written by Kaviguru. We stayed at Birpurush. In two days it became our own home. This is a duplex villa with two bed rooms with AC and attached baths, two balconies, hall, dining space, kitchen, common area with all required aminities and everything in good condition, what else is needed. The whole house is decorated with show pieces, yellow lamps, wooden stairs, wooden furnitures, television etc. The balcony attached with the room is just beside the paddy field from where you can experience a night moment of village. Which we liked the most after a hectic day of doing sight scenes, sitting in the balcony at night used to give us a nice ending of the day in the silence, a chance to see the sky full of stars in the darkness which we usually miss nowadays in the cities. Security is very good for this complex as well. Moreover a good arrangement you can expect here from the owner in respect of food from breakfast to dinner and transportation for the sight scenes. We got nice food and it was pocket friendly. Also a toto was arranged for us for the whole trip. So I will highly recommended this stay for couples as well as for group of friends or family of 4-6 persons. You will really like the homely atmosphere here and also the peaceful surroundings. Subhas's homestay is the best in Bolpur for sure. Thank you Airbnb for making the stay memorable.

  • This place is absolutely idyllic!! As a foreign guest I was most impressed by the beautiful natural surroundings, which are so dissimilar to the UK- amazing plants and flowers growing right outside the very comfortable veranda! The property itself was spotless and fresh (bar some littering on the ground that the back balcony faces onto)- this is not part of the complex, but it's a shame that holiday makers are doing this as it spoils an otherwise perfect view :( I have to admit that we didn't use this space because of this. Special compliments must go to the architecture of the house- so thoughtfully done out, with beautiful mood lighting and touches of the local area. It was a place to absolutely unwind- everything has been thought of with comfort in mind. My son loved the 'pizza chairs'. ;) The property is quite isolated (it's in a village, not Santiniketan proper), but Nandu, a local toto driver, is available to help visitors get around and with sightseeing. We can't recommend him highly enough- he has excellent knowledge of the local area and also introduced us to some amazing places to eat. The gate staff at the complex are also very friendly and welcoming- we were never without fresh water and they were happy to provide food as and when needed. Thank you so much for a lovely stay. We will definitely be back!! ps. I neglected to notice when booking that there is no internet. But actually this wasn't an issue, because in such a beautiful place I didn't want to connect! Just be aware.

You can enjoy spectacular sunrises(if you are a morning person) and sunsets. You can use our stepper, read books from the library over a cup of coffee.

  • One of the best homestay experiences that we've had so far. We stayed there for three nights and four fays. It indeed felt like a home where the hosts (Ranjana aunty and Anupam uncle) were really caring and engaging. With a smile always on her face, aunty catered to our every need and made us feel like a member of the household. Also, the room, which is typically a room on the terrace, is huge and has everything that a cozy home needs. They have a beautiful garden which adds to the charm of the house. The location of the place is suited for those looking to reside in a quiet and ambient surrounding yet connected easily to major points such as the Viswa Bharati campus and the railway station. Auto-rickshaws (locally known as Toto) are available at the end of the street, which makes visiting any locations completely hassle free. I would recommend anyone - small families, couples, solo travellers to stay here if you want to enjoy real peace in Shantiniketan with all the perks of tourism.

    Nayanika2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The host was very warm and welcoming. The food was proper homemade comfort food. The room was airy and spacious, the terrace being an added bonus. Would definitely recommend.

    Emon2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful place to stay in Bolpur. The hospitality was fantastic and the meals were better than in any restaurant! The hosts were more than helpful with anything I needed, from renting a bicycle to even having the WiFi fixed straight away so I could work. The location was in a nice and quiet street with easy access to the sights of Bolpur and Shantiniketan. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and would stay again when I return.

    Nicholas2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous stay. Host is the sweetest! She helped us find all the best spots around. Overall, amazing experience. Would definitely recommend this!

    Arjama2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • I wholeheartedly recommend this listing. Everything they have mentioned is true. I stayed here for 2 nights with a friend. We felt at home throughout. The room is on the terrace. It's spacious and airy. The views are good because there's a beautiful farm bang opposite the front of the house. They also have tables and chairs laid out on the terrace if you want to sit and enjoy the cool evening breeze in summers or have breakfast while basking in the warm winter sun. Amenities are good. The place is run by Rupanjana's mom. She's so warm and welcoming. She took great care of us. The food needs a special mention here. It was so delicious and reasonably priced too. She also gave us the contact for a toto driver and gave us tips for local sightseeing. The place is a 20-minute toto ride away from the Shantiniketan campus. All other places worth visiting are more or less the same distance. We had a great time here.

    Arpan2019-12-20T00:00:00Z

    Partha2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a peaceful and relaxing three-night stay at Rupanjana's place. We received a warm welcome from Rupanjana's mother Ranjana di , who runs the homestay almost single-handed. The house is located at a 5-minute walking distance from the main road from where toto(s) are available. The room was clean and cosy with all the amenities, as posted in the listing, present. The air-conditioner works okay. We had food cooked by the lady of the house. I must admit that she cooked delicious food which used to be easy on the stomach. She was always ready to help with a smile on her face. We came to know from her about places of interest around Shantiniketan apart from useful tips on shopping. We wish to visit again at the next opportunity.

    Mamta2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Airbnb experience and it was way better than I expected. The room is big enough for two people , the terrace is nice , ac does the job and the location is very close to all the sightseeing places .

    Debanshu2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • "a great place to call "home". The entire staff always greet you with a smile . The two story building everywhere clean with pleasant vision alaround. The front lawn was full of well maintained seasonal flowers with a small area of fresh grass. We love the convenience of the kitchen facility with dining. We felt thereal taste of Santiniketan and want to visit here again.

    Debapriya2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Bolpur town. Great location close to the Deer Park. Lovely well manicured garden is the highlight of the property. Tarani and his wife Mamoni were very attentive and satisfied all our needs. Mamoni is a great cook as others have commented. They are both lovely people kind gentle and honest. All in all we couldnot have asked for a better stay anywhere in Shantiniketan. Tarani provided all our transport needs to show us around Tagore's Shantiniketan. Tarani's fares for exclusive use of his Toto is quite reasonable as well

    Santanu2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Mr. Banerjee's home is in tandem with the spirit of Shantiniketan. The home is very cozy and warm. Tarani Kaku and his family were sweet and his toto ride saved us the huge task of bargaining. The location is amazing and the terrace stole my heart ♥️

    Madhura2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • I don't know how to describe this. But it was an amazing experience for us. The host was helpful and communicative. The big assets of the property are the caretaker Tarani Da and his wife. Tarani da took care of our transportation and all as he owns a Toto. His wife cooked amazing food for us. They did it all with a smiling face. The beautiful picture perfect house with a small ground inside, the flowers made it more amazing. We celebrated surprise birthday here and they co-operated a lot. A small walking from they property towards deer park and Siksha Bhawan is an awesome experience at dawn or at late night. Overall, it was an amazing stay for us. Will be back soon here again. Cheers.

    Aritra2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • It's a great place to stay if you are looking for some leisure and fun time to spend with your family / friends. You can have your own time in a good residential location in a serene environment.

    Subhasish2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • It was one of the best home stays I have experienced in my life. The care taker at the facility Mr. Tarani was of great help. The entire staff there assisted us with everything with a smile. We would love to go back to the place time and again.

    Yubaraj2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay in this place, the surrounding is peaceful and conveniently located. The ambience is welcoming and without hassles. The caretaker is also very helpful. We look to come again.

  • The stay was great. This was second stay in Amar Bari project. Enjoyed a lot. The bungalow overlooks a huge span of green fields. Its all serene, pure and refreshing out there. I would recommend, "The Whispering Inn" an hotel nearby, for food. The food there was tasty and they were kind to arrange a local band in the evening. We enjoyed listening to folk songs, and danced as well along with other guests. For check in, please don't forget to carry a photocopy of your photo ID card which you would need to submit at the security office near entrance.

    Dipendu2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The property is excellent and spic and span. You'll regret soiling, something that doesn't come naturally to the majority of us unless met with such a nice place. The house has everything one needs to make a trip relaxing and comfortable. Security is good in the vicinity, night walks are safe and recommended as one gets to see a variety of decorated houses in the same complex. A total 3 star ambience all around. Power cuts last for max 30 seconds before digit kicks in. AC available though we barely needed to turn on the fan during our trip. Water pressure is good, do remember to tune it down according to your need. RO purifier available inside the house. Sling bottles add a touch. Totos are a great option, but check and confirm rates before giving your word about a particular trip. They charge for halts and breaks even if your halt is enroute to your destination. If possible stay away from Sonali restaurant, which is just outside the complex. The manager has a bit of an attitude problem and the food quality is not good. At least ours was not good. If possible hire the services of the maid available, she's a gem. Only that you need to do the marketing yourself. There are two shops nearby but they close early. Basic items of daily use are available there. Fish and chicken available in the Market, but you'll have to hire a toto if walking 2kms is not your forte. Lastly, I'd like to thank Aditi for being such a nice host. Her house has a corner for every mood and ocassion, be it a dance in the beautiful garden with your loved one, or a small toast with close ones while sitting in an armchair. Loved my stay :-)

Evening is charming with garden lights which gives a mesmerizing feeling in the pin drop silence.

    Our place is very close to ( walking distance ) Pous Mela ground , coffee shop, rural tea joint, ideal for a morning or evening walk. Every Saturday, guest can visit rural fair which is very colourfull and tourists enjoy it verymuch.
  • It’s a very tidy and lovely place well connected with places you would like to visit during your stay. The moment we stepped in we felt like “at home”. The warmth of their hospitality will always make you happy. An amazing and colourful garden always waits for you to appreciate. One can be amazed by the aesthetic sense of the owners. Mindful and careful selection of artefacts, their placement and ‘interaction’ with the guests is heartwarming. Lastly, if you are a lucky visitor during winter, you would get a chance to bring home a little surprise of sweetness. Just one suggestion to the coming guests, please check the address with Mr. Shyamal and don’t rely on Apple Maps or Google Maps as they show a completely wrong location (as per my experience). @Airbnb please get this sorted

  • Mr. and Mrs. Banerjee's place was beautiful and clean. Their attention to detail was remarkable. The food was delicious and homely. They were extremely friendly and hospitable, and were always available to extend all the help we needed. The garden was spectacular and very well-maintained. Special mention to the beautiful pelmet in the bedroom. It was the most unique one we have ever seen. All in all this was a fantastic place to visit. Definitely coming here again! :)

    " SABEKI " itself means "ethnic" in Bengali. It's a great place for spending some quality time with the original Bengali culture in the land of Tagore. If you want warm hospitality from a true Bengali family, then you've found the right place.
    The place is spacious and airy.
    Very calm and serene area
  • Had a wonderful stay at "Sabeki". The place is very near to Viswabharati. Totos are always available for other places. The food available is great and a must for all. Host and her mother is very welcoming and we would love to stay here again. Only problem is not having a WiFi or Television. But that can be blessing in disguise. You can read books and have quality family time.

    Subhajit2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay at Nabina's place. She and her family are so warm and caring and took care of me when I got sick. The location is perfect for those who want to visit Visva Bharathi University. The room is very comfortable and it's perfect to retire at the end of the day. Highly recommend this place 😊

    Sayan2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful stay! Very nice hosts and delicious food! Only stayed one night, but lucky enough to have two lunches and one dinner. A good formula where you have enough privacy, but you also are a part of the family. Very clean and tidy. Just at stone throwing distance from Visva Bharati campus. Hope to comeback as I go with only good memories.

    Sayan2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • The quality of stay, its cleanliness and the hospitality of the host made the stay a memorable one. The warmth with which they hosted was really intriguing. The food offered was both tasty and healthy at the same time. Above all, the cleanliness and hyegiene were highly taken care of. The location also facilitated easy communication. All this gave the stay a different touch altogether! Would highly recommend it to all!

    Viktoria2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was one of the best places we've stayed at on a vacation. We were looking for something that feels homely and Atithi surpassed our expectations. It was spotless and seemed like every little corner was thought of carefully. From the flower arrangements to the spices in the kitchen to the incense sticks already on the table, the hosts were very thoughtful of our needs. Communication was instantaneous. Ritabrata and his father were willing to help us with whatever we needed. Previously, I've stayed closer to the university so the main road was less busy. But this house is located a minute away from the noise. So it feels rather personal. We will be sure to stay here again. Thank you for having us. :)

    5 mins walking from PRANTIK STATION but away from the hustle. Two spacious rooms with 1 washroom that can be accessed from both rooms. We have a beautiful verandah that can be approached from both rooms.Nice view of the Prantik stn from the roof. Viswabharati , Kopai,konkalitala,Sonajhuri and all major tourist places are easily accessible by Toto. Pls mention the correct no of guests while booking. Carrom board available. Tea and biscuits available in the property.
    The house is filled with colourful wall art (makes for a pretty background for photographs :-)) The house has been designed by my parents and myself over the years with a lot of love and now we hope to share it with all our guests too. The only space that is not accessible to the guests is a small study on the ground floor that will house the host/caretaker. Close to Bolpur town and Viswa bharati university campus but away from the hustle. Make sure to visit the roof for a beautiful view of the Prantik Station. It's straight out of the stories by Ruskin Bond about a quaint little station with trains passing by- every now and then.
    The famous Sanat da's sweet shop and restaurant is a one minute walk from the house. You can also enjoy a breezy stroll on the station road and the quaint Prantik station in the evening. Kopai river, Khoaai, the Sonajhuri adivasi gram (tribal village), Konkalitala mandir, Amar Kuthi, Visva Bharati campus are all easily accessible from our place.
  • Airbnb is becoming is becoming a fantastic social network platform now. Everytime you choose to stay with a family, you make friends and memories.. We had a great time with Sanjit da while we spebt 3 long days in Prantik. Exactly what were were looking from this short outing..infact much more than that. Inviting Brishti and family to our place in near future.

    Poul&Arin2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was truly a pleasure to stay at Brishti. We didn't feel out of home at all. Our host Sanjitda was so cordial and his hospitality is really great. Please don't forget to have your meals from Sanat Da's shop, just at opposite of the house. Also have to mention the host's decor sense, which made the home a special one. Definitely would visit again.

    Arijit2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Place is perfect for a stay in Prantik.The location was great. It’s literally a 2 minute walk to the railway station. There are lots of small eateries around but in the home itself it’s completely quiet and calm. All modern amenities are in the house which makes the stay very comfortable. Host Sanjit Da and Brishti are very lively which makes the stay even more memorable. The yummy food and mishti from sanat da's shop (just opp the house) is the icing on the cake. Would recommend anyone who wants to spend an amazing location with a super amazing host. Every details & amenities have been thoughtfully placed.

    Priyanka2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Firstly, can I give a six star rating? Every single thing was meticulously arranged. From chessboard to scented candle. Our host, Sanjit kaku, was a great companion for "adda" and was promt with everything. It really was a "vacation at home". I would recommend it to all.

    Avraneel2019-10-26T00:00:00Z

    Somenath2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Brishti's place in Prantik was extremely comfortable and convenient. The host, Brishti's father, was very warm and welcoming. He cooperated with us immensely and looked after our every need - be it giving advice and recommendations for places to visit to adjusting with the check out time. The house is just beautiful - it is artfully decorated with paintings and photographs done by the family themselves. It is also very close to Prantik station and thus convenient. Highly recommended listing!

    Ankita2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • I and my 5 friends had a great stay at Brishti. The rooms are decorated lively, and there's a nice terrace on the 1st floor, where the bedrooms are. The roof terrace also has good views. Both rooms have fans and a/c. Our host was very friendly and hospitable. Would definitely stay here again. The only downside is that there are a few ants in the bathroom, but they are easily avoided.

  • amazing and pleasant stay.... very near to prantik station... Location is also good... and awesome hospitality

    Sumit2019-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at Sholar Bari and we honestly didn't expect the caretaker and his wife to remember us and be so welcoming both to us and to our four legged fellow traveller. They were most kind in serving us breakfast by 7 considering we left early on both days. And also as before our privacy was respected and we had the quiet stay we looked forward to. I truly felt sorry leaving we felt so much at home. But we will be back soon.

    Satyaki2019-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Rajrupa2017-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • We were touched that out pet dog who accompanied us was not only permitted but also welcomed. The house is what a generation back would be called 'respectable'! Perfectly set away from the huff and puff in the best of what suburbia offers. Everything was neat and adequate. Im so elated that it didn't reek of the noxious whiff of commercialisation. Felt no different from staying in a a very homely home.

  • We enjoyed our stay at this property, everything that is required to spend three nights n four days were available at this small but beautifully decorated bungalow. The host were available over phone all the time with a warm n helping attitude. The rooftop was a bonus. From there we enjoyed full moon night with hot coffee made by Malati di, the cook cum caretaker. She is a great cook and an extra ordinarily good hearted and hardworking person. Really loved her. If someone want to spend time in the lap of nature, this is the ideal place to stay. A home away from home!

    Anumita2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

    Situated near the Prantik Railway Station near Rabindranath Tagore's land Santiniketan, Aikatan offers a blissful experience of living in rural Bengal and at the same time getting all the comforts and luxuries of Your own home. In other words, Aikatan is truly a home away from home.
    Peaceful and quiet. Five minutes walk from Prantik railway station. A real getaway from the hectic and noisy city life!
    One thing that attracts me about Prantik and especially the neighborhood in which Aikatan is situated is that the neighborhood is extremely safe. I have been visiting Prantik since my childhood days and I haven't seen anything bad happening anywhere. The property and the location is also 100% secure. So You don't have to worry about Your security anytime. There are local handicraft shops and restaurants/cafes that you will find nearby. Besides, there are a lot of places to visit and things to do in Santiniketan. One thing I can tell You and that is if You are looking to get a feeling of what the Indian countryside is like, You will get that in Prantik.
  • Very neat &clean place for stay...good place for visit with family..

    Indranil2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really nice and serene.very peaceful and private. I stayed just for a day but I wished I ha another day more to spend there. Tapasda, who took care of our check in was very polite and helpful and ensured every thing to be smooth. Some toiletaries (a small soap and a shampoo sachet) could have been fine but I was carrying it any how. Overall It was clean and nice experience.thank u.

    Debajyoti2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Well, i was given to understand that the property is 25 yrs old. If so be it, then take a bow hosts and owners. Its such well maintained that hardly looks like a 5 year old property. Very ideally located in Prantik township everything is just at a stone throw distance, yet in a very calm and peaceful place. The sounds of the train and the sight of the zooping express trains pass by is a treat to the eyes for those who really love the ground basics of life. And the trip wont be complete without the mention of Tapash da - by far the most politically active person we have met. If you have time, just give him a topic on Bengal politics and I assure he can keep on talking till the next sunrise. A very loveable character indeed. Overall, a splendid place for unwinding yourself from the daily city life routine and I am sure this is my first out of many visits in future.

    Prithwijit2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place is at a peacful locality. The hosts were friendly & nice. The cook is superb. Overall a nice stay at Bolpur. Perfect homestay for a couple or with friends.

    Vikramjit2018-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this place is PERFECT! Saptorshi is an amazing host. He's always willing to help out. This place is located in a secluded area near Prantik Station. The place is extremely neat and clean. Tapash Da is a fantastic person. His wife made us breakfast. The place is so peaceful. We had a great stay :)

    Anisha2018-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The room is in a very quiet quarter what is not that usual in India (only a few trains in a day come to disturb that silent mood). The family host are very friendly and very helpfully, even if he doesn't speak very good English. But with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and mobile we can always contact the owner of the house that speak fluently English. Food made by the house wife is very good also. There is bike, and it is easy to visit Shantinikitan with it.

    Rinjal2019-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Vinayak kept in constant contact which was very helpful with the check in process. He's been friendly before and after my stay which I really appreciate. The house is cozy and near prantik bazaar and station. Tapashda and his wife take care of the house and they are friendly and helpful. Even though my Bangla is not advanced I still had plenty of conversations with them shooting the breeze. Auntie's cooking is great and the food is definitely affordable and fair. Despite being near the station it is indeed quiet and I slept well even as a light sleeper. It would help to know the layout of santiniketan in advance as prantik is slightly outside of the town, but it's easy to figure out your way. I can suggest staying at this homestay for a peaceful stay!

    Our nest 'Dui Pakhi'(Two Birds),a place where joy frees your mind and fills it with tranquility. It's a beautiful homestay at Santiniketan.(within 5 kilometers from Bolpur Station). We rent our entire first floor which has a spacious room with attached bathroom and dressing room. The most attractive place is our wide porch with a open terrace with a pantry and a barbecue corner. Homemade Bengali food can be prepared on extra cost. Places of interest can be accessed easily from our place.
    I tried to design the interior in a way which our guests get a feel of old world charm in a tranquil and natural surrounding. The porch and open terrace is an ideal place to spent time in the early morning and evening over a cup of coffee or tea while listening bird's chirping.
    Places of interest can be accessed easily from our place. The 'Toto'(4 seater battery car), will take just 5 mins to reach Aashram (Biswabharati Campus) by walk it will take 15-20 mins. Our house is also close to Sonajhuri/khoayai haat . Toto on call is available. Toto stand is just a few step forward from our house. We can help with other information if required.
  • Beautiful time spent at 'Dui pakhi'. Very clean and tastefully designed place with everything you needed. Located in a very good location. Ujjaini was very helpful and a wonderful host! Truly, here love resides and memories are created!

    Anirban2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

  • It is a wonderful place to relax. The environment is so peaceful.. the interior decorations is so classy and will give one the essence of true 'Bangaliana'. Both Ujjaini di and her husband were very friendly we had a great chat over tea. Even, the caretaker Rakhi di was nice and helpful. Overall, it was a grand experience. Thank you Dui Pakhi and Airbnb for this kind of treat.

  • It’s a great place to stay in Shantiniketon. The place is very clean and we loved the open area and flowery garden. The host is very concern and helpful. The place represents the overall sprite-philosophy of Shantiniketon and Ravindranath Tagore. We recommend this place for everyone...

    Monjurul2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

Open roof is the added advantage of this property with the beautiful garden. We really enjoyed our stay and special thanks to Ujjaini for being such a lovely host who took care of every little things. If you have kids then this is the perfect place to stay.

    Subhasish2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • It was a nice and pleasant stay. The place was tranquil and away from the hustle and bustle of Bolpur. Bolpur is just 4km, Prantik is 2km and Sonajhuri is 1.6km from the listing. One can immerse in the true essence of Shantiniketan here. Nice little cozy place amidst nature. Loved our walks in the morning and evening. Connectivity is good too. A Toto or a car is just a call away. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful. They were attentive and helped us in every situation. And the food was healthy, tasty and had a homely feeling to it.

    It's a Laurie Baker architecture in the Romanesque Revival style, tastefully decorated and well lit. Lots of sunshine and fresh air. Peaceful and quiet. An ideal getaway in the midst of nature with a garden of its own where fresh vegetables are grown. It's lovely to sit in the garden in the evenings! It is so tranquil and silent that you can actually hear it! :)
    The house is about 5 kms from the Bolpur Railway Station and about 2 kms from the Visva Bharati University. It is a quiet and peaceful neighborhood, very green. There are a lot of good cafes and restaurants in the neighborhood and a 30 minute walk to the river 'Kopai'.
  • This place is worthy of the money spent.Though the host doesn't reside here still everything was in its place.We checked in at our convenient time.The place was sparking clean and very cosy.We will definitely stay here again when we visit shantiniketan again.

    Rounakshi2019-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little place away from the crowded locality. The property has a colonial touch . Rooms were clean and has a touch of elegance. There are no restaurant at near vicinity. I enjoyed my stay.

    Kaushik2019-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house and the area are beautiful. There's a very well maintained garden in the backyard, there's an old timey vibe to the place without feeling ancient. The room is comfortable and cost for three. There's a kettle and some tea available too. There didn't seem to be any facility to clean the room, although we didn't ask. The house is located 1 km from Prantik stn and about 3-4 from Bolpur stn, and about 2 from the Vishwa Bharti uni. Food places are a short walk away. Also if you have an extra guest you can ask for an extra mattress!

  • It was refreshing to be hosted by Dipa Aunty (Olena's mother-in-law). Right from the start, not only did she help us with the directions but also ensured that all our needs are met till we bade her farewell. The room was amazingly clean and well-kept. On the eve of our departure, she invited us to have dinner with her. After some stories and laughters later, we retired to our beds hoping to have spent some more time. Thank you for being so wonderful! :) :) It felt like a second home.

    Nikita2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, perfect in every way! It is a very clean, comfortable and cozy apartment and aesthically decorated. When I came the weather was quite hot but the apartment is nice and cool. It is situated in lush greenery and serene surroundings and yet very close to cafes, the railway station, Visva Bharati Univeristy and other places of interest. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and took great care to make my stay memorable and comfortable. The apartment has a separate entrance than the main house and that makes it very convenient to come and go anytime. There is a lovely garden all around the house which makes the environment very fresh. I wish to come back again soon!

    A few slots still going for Poush Mela and Christmas - book before it is too late!! The house is set in the midst of wide open spaces with an ambience of peace and quiet. The summer and winter flowers add to the charm of this setting. The friendly and helpful staff ensure a pleasant stay at Preyoshi. A visit to Viswabharati (close by), the university set up by the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore is recommended. Parking for one car can be provided depending on availability.
    The bungalow is located in an non congested neighbourhood overlooking wide open spaces and yet not far from town centre and the Viswabharati university. It is a bungalow where guest will be offered a room where we can accommodate 2 people .
    A walk around the neighbourhood to the Santal settlement can be very pleasant. A short ride to the Deer Park in the morning is recommended. Of course, a trip to the Viswabharati campus, Kala Bhawan (Art Department) in particular, and Uttarayan (Tagore's residential complex) is an essential part of a trip to Santiniketan.
  • Piali's place is very good and very clean. The place is surrounded by trees. In the morning the birds' chirping is the natural alarm to awake you up. The food provided at the stay was very tasty and homely. The people are very welcoming.

    Sayan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

  • My stay at Preyoshi has been surreal to put it simply. Piyali Di's beautifully done home in a tiny corner of Andrew's Palli is a little hamlet away from the hustle bustle. There is something about this place, that is magical. It is not just in its Victorian architecture, or the beautiful garden, or the wonderful hospitality of both Piyali Di and Prabhas Da Malati Di, but it is somewhere whole, out there, through out. I dont exactly know what it is or how to put it. But as you sit the balcony, with the lovely breakfast spread cooked by Malati Di and you look into the vast nothingness in front of you, you realise time has stopped. If you want to have an experience of not just travelling a place but living there, please surely visit this beautiful property.

  • Our stay at Preyosi was very relaxing and peaceful. it's tucked away in a quiet part of town and it's a perfect getaway from the city. The staff is warm and friendly and cooks yummy food on request. The premises are clean and cheerful and the house itself is very pretty along with a lovely view on all sides. All amenities provided are in good condition. I would definitely go back to this Airbnb every time I am in santiniketan.

  • I think the place is beautifully decorated a 10/10 on that , every person there is so selfless . Shukurmoni the caretaker is such a helpful person . The only thing I would tell them is to add a king-size bed by removing the two single beds. But other than that had a great experience as I'm trying Airbnb for the first time . Would recommend this place definitely. P.s the puppies and cats are so cute ..

  • Hi I had a lovely time at Shantiniketan, staying at Bhitey with some close friends. Reeta's place was well maintained clean and simple. We experienced an authentic Shantiniketan vibe during our stay. We ordered delicious food from Labanaya caterers and mouth watering samosas and chops from Sharbomongola. Do check it out. Much better than Kolkata local samosas. The house keeper Shukur Moni wass bery helpful. Overall a great experience and value for money. We are already planning our next trip.

  • Second visit and would love to come again! The house was just as we remembered and the garden was beautiful. Exactly the place for a quiet and comfortable escape from the city. Please ask the host any questions you may have, she is extremely approachable and did her best to accommodate all requests. Very clean and also very comfortable beds.

  • Staying at “Bhite” in Shantiniketan makes our trip a memorable one. The first thing that came in mind for this homestay is sparkling clean. Frankly speaking we stayed several homestay before but never seen such neat and clean homestay. Basic amenities like gas, refrigerator, microwave, tv, water purifier are present there so you never feel that you are away from home. Personally we didn’t meet with Reeta however she was in touch with us over phone. Hospitality of Caretaker Sukhomoni is amazing. From cleaning of utensils to prepare mosquito net in the night all the works she have done with great care. And top of the cherry is Lavanya Caterer. Their cooking is just awesome. In very reasonable rate you can enjoy the taste like homemade prepared dish. So if you want to visit Shantiniketan with a group of 5 or 6 then “Bhite” is definitely a good option.

    This is a centrally located area and very close to the Poush Mela Ground, the Vishva-Bharati ashram area and the main market place with easy access to environment friendly Totos and cycle rickshaws. It is a beautiful, quiet, lushly green location—ideal for a weekend holiday—or for an introspective retreat. It's peaceful, private and cozy. We welcome young families as well as seniors looking for some quietude. It is a home away from home. We also provide home-cooked food at a price.
    It is a cosy air-conditioned two-bedroom cottage with a separate living and dining space in a huge compound. There are several mango trees, lime and banana trees and in the vast garden. We also live in the same compound but in a separate house, and are always accessible for any help that you may need. Please note that, we dont have TV, we dont allow unmarried couples/friends, inviting outside guests (unless permitted), and, you are not allowed to bring and eat cooked food from outside here. If you are new and don't have previous positive multiple feedbacks to your favour as a guest, please dont book our space. Period. If you still going ahead, last stop here -- please understand that Homestay is not a Hotel. A home has certain rules, that you must follow. So, please read every damn thing written over here, understand, and then proceed. Thanks.
    Our place is a stone's throw away from the Poush Mela Ground as well as the main ashram area where the Kala Bhavan, the Sangeet Bhavan and Tagore's museum are located. We are also walking distance away from the main handicraft shopping area.
  • We enjoyed our stay in this cosy garden house. We were made to feel very welcome and were given all the support we could possibly want to have a thoroughly enjoyable visit to this special university town and the local area. Highly recommended.

  • Subhendu and Sushmita were great hosts and we had a wonderful time at their place. We had to make a few changes in our travel plans and they easily adjusted the accommodation accordingly. Subh also dropped us to the bus stand and provided the local assistance. The house help was also amazing and the food was super delicious. There were a total of three rooms and the place was sparkling clean.

    Shweta2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Mr. & Mrs Sen are lovely hosts. Very warm and hospitable. Their Bnb in present at the back of their house surrounded by their kitchen garden midst a lot of greenery, peace and quiet.

Location of his property is outstanding. Well maintained garden, aesthetically decorated and clean room definitely make your stay memorable in Santiniketan.

  • Awesome stay at Subhendu & Sushmita’s. The cottage and the homely feel was the highlight of the trip. The cottage was neat and clean with all basic amenities. It has 2 bedrooms, a living cum dining area and a bathroom with a changing area. Outside the cottage there is a well constructed place to sit in the garden and admire the serene beauty. My husband and I went there with my aged parents. my parents were blown away by the beautiful garden. There was a kettle with tea bags, coffee packets, milk powder and sugar which is very important for tea lovers like my family. We ate all meals there at a reasonably added price. The home cooked food was plenty in variety and super delicious.We stayed there for 2 nights. There was 2 maid who cleaned the cottage, served food and took care of other needs. The location is very close to viswa bharati university and other places of interest. We took Mr. Subhendu’s suggestions on how to plan the 2 days. It was very helpful. We loved every bit of our stay and would recommend more people to stay at Subhendu & Sushmita’s- the super hosts !!!

  • When we booked Munia and after my first telecall with Sarajit, i had an idea that it will be a very good stay. After meeting Sarajit and Sharmila, the way they greeted us, their proactiveness to see on our well being all the time and warmth of their friendly nature has made it an exceptional and memorable tour for us. The way they have made and furnished this property, one can soak himself in the lifestyle of a traditional and rich bengali culture. And, what a marvellous cook Tunu is! A smiling face with a golden touch in cooking. Shall miss that cup of tea with that smile. Sarajit refers Bablu, caretaker and gardener, as his Man Friday. He can not be more true. Bablu received us at the station, was always around till he waved as we boarded our train to Kolkata. Ours was a Platinum Class stay at Munia. Thanks Sharmila and Sarajit

    Gautam2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • I had visited with my family to this unique home called ‘Munia’. Here we met Sarajit uncle and his family who have since then become extended family for us. The house is a beautiful one with the finest aesthetics on display. Food cooked by their caretaker’s wife was awesome. The aesthetics and delicious food have the prominent touches from aunty. Would love to go back again and again.

    Sumon2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Munia Homestay is a beautiful place if you like to stay somewhere near Shantiniketan but away from all the hustle bustle, even during peak seasons. It is very close to the Prantik station, approximately a 5-10 mins walk. The house is very well taken care of. Bablu and his wife Tunu are the caretakers. They are a nice couple who took really good care of us. They made sure that our stay was comfortable. Mr. Sarajit Deb, the owner of Munia is a charming personality to talk to and he was very responsive to all my queries. The house is beautifully decorated with artifacts from all over the world. We ate breakfast and dinner every day at Munia. The food was homelyand wholesome which is exactly what we wanted. Overall, I am very satisfied and would love to come back again.

    Shaon2018-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a good stay at Munia. The house is amazing and the library is a real treasure! The food cooked by Mrs Deb was lip-smacking which led us to indulge in overeating every single time! I wish Sasha let me play with her more though😜 The care-takers Tunu and Bablu were extremely helpful and accommodating. Thanks for hosting us 😊

    Arunima2017-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for 2 nights on a weekend trip during the festival of Holi, better known as Basanta Utsav in Shantiniketan. If you prefer cleanliness, hygiene and beautiful interior decor, then this is undoubtedly the place where you should stay. Add to that the delicious hot meals cooked by Mrs Deb, and you have the perfect recipe for a great time with your friends/family. Mr Deb got in touch with us a week before the trip and went out of his way to provide every little detail that was possible regarding our stay and other arrangements - something you hardly come across in these times. During our stay, Mrs Deb ensured every nook and corner was clean, every bedsheet was neatly tucked and every meal had lip-smacking Bengali food. In fact, this place would offer you better food than any restaurant in the town, especially during the festive seasons. Their attendants Bablu and his wife Tulu were also very helpful throughout, ready to cater to even weird demands like fetching Pepsi at 11:30 in the night, with a smile. Bablu also showed us the way in and out of the place many times, from the nearest landmark - Camellia hotel. Sasha, the cute, peppy Lhasa frolicking around the place makes it come to life. But you need to be really cute for her to allow you to pat her! To sum it up, we had an enjoyable time with very cultured, educated, well-spoken people in a pristine, picturesque house - and I would recommend everyone to come here and experience the same.

    Avisek2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our short vacation at Munia was fantastic! The place is located in a calm, serene neighbourhood away from the din of the town, yet close to places that matter - Vishwa Bharati University, Saturday Haat, Prantik Railway Station etc. The house is very comfortable with a garden, plenty of sunlight and fresh air. Mrs. Deb's collection of artifacts deserves a special mention. Sasha, the cute little lhasa, running around the porch, garden made the place lively. Though this was our first trip to Shantiniketan, Mr. Deb’s detailed inputs on directions and landmarks helped us reach his place without much hassle. At night, when we lost our way, Mrs. Deb sent her emissary – Pijush, to guide us to Munia. Thank you Pijush! Mrs. Deb took pains to prepare meals for us. The food was homely and we enjoyed our long conversations with Mrs. Deb over breakfast, dinner. Her suggestions on places to visit, stuff to buy turned out to be very good. Thank you Mrs. & Mr. Deb for your hospitality! We really liked your place and would love to come back.

    Biplab2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a great stay in Shantiniketan. The house is beautiful, and the food was amazing. We really appreciated a tasty soup the day we were ill. Sarajit took it upon himself to organise pick ups from the train station (at unusual times) and lots of activities whilst we were there, including a tour of the town the day after holi. Thanks for all your help
