After quite a long drive from Khajuraho, the cool, mud room at Orchha, behind the Orchha Laxmi Narayan temple at Ganj, was such a welcome. We had put up at Hari and Kusmi's house. The lady of the house was such a warm person, she took personal care while serving our food. The room was clean, the toilet though not attached to the room, was alright. The bed was also clean. The windows had secure mosquito nets and the room had a wonderful view of the Orchha fort complex. It was pleasant to see the sun come up above the temple and the greens in early morning.

We offer clean and comfortable rooms, furnished in traditional style, built in the courtyard of the host family. The rooms have fans and mosquito nets and the bathroom & toilets are ecological.
