Banyan Tree - Luxury home with swimming pool and green lawn

As you enter the driveway of the homestay you are greeted by a magnificent, old Banyan Tree. The greenery of the region and the property itself makes it's temperature 3-4 degrees Celsius lower than the rest of the city. As people familiar with Delhi's weather will know, this is a huge asset during summers. Major Gen Dugal, who is a successful businessman himself, bought the Farmhouse in November 2005 and turned it into a B&B one year ago. His own experience as an avid traveller and corporate giant ensures that the homestay has 7 star facilities with the warmth of a home. And thanks to his eye for detail, in just one year's time, the homestay has acquired an enviable reputation amongst discerning travellers and corporate clients. Initially, it was bought for private use but one thing led to another and soon it became a thriving homestay. The "New Wing" was added with 4 rooms and a large-size pool.

All the 6 guest rooms are huge. Most have their own dressing rooms, balconies and lavish ensuite baths. View from all homes is an integral part of their decor. A self-sufficient suite, with its own pantry, lounge and outdoor terrace lawn seating area is available for people looking for an extended stay. Both the Old and the New Wings share a similar ethnic facade but the rooms in the New Wing are more modern. Rich colours, unique furniture and artifacts embellish the home. In spring, a "waterfall" of hot pink bougainvilleas is seen from the large breakfast room. This Homestay is extremely soothing and almost therapeutic in nature. It is a wonderful option for corporate clients due to its close proximity to Faridabad and Gurgaon. In fact, senior executives have checked out of 5 stars hotels in Delhi/ Gurgaon and moved here for the rest of their stay. People who stay at the homestay love to swim, listen to the chirping birds and stare at the starry sky. Qutub Minar is 25 mins away if there's heavy traffic. REACHING HERE: This homestay is 12 kms away from the popular MG road and the nearest metro station is Chhatarpur a little over 12 kms or 15 minutes drive. So it is easy to reach yet far from the maddening noise and pollution of the city center. Delhi airport - 35 mins drive connected by six-lane roads leading straight to DLF - 20 mins drive.

Beautiful place We stayed here 3 times whilst in the North of India. This meant that we could leave our luggage there and travel with a small suitcase. Navin the manager was very helpful. It felt more like a hotel and we would of liked to have met the owners but was told that they were away. The place was very peaceful and about 30 mins from the centre of Delhi. Rooms were very clean and warm (as the nights and early mornings were very cold). Would recommend anyone to stay there and very good if you are doing the Golden Triangle and want a base.

Feedback on home stay An excellent place for a home stay. The whole place is beautiful - the rooms, gardens, amenities in the room, furniture, decor - absolutely fantastic. Only the service was a little slow - but the overall ambience more than made up for it.

Fabulous homestay in the heart of Delhi A fantastic 1920\'s house with a superb lawn and a great swimming pool. The rooms are more like suites with amazing antic furnitures. One of the best places to stay in Delhi by far and would definitely recommend this homestay to everyone.
