India’s 20 most-charming B&Bs

Our idea of a Bed and Breakfast is largely borrowed from the West, where they serve as travellers’ inns, providing those on the road with a clean room in which to sleep, and a delicious, hearty breakfast before they’re on their way again.

 Usually, Bed and Breakfasts are quaint properties, without the specialised facilities (spas, gyms, multiple restaurants) offered by five-star hotels and smaller, professionally managed chains. A B&B may not have an infinity pool, 24-hour room service or a concierge desk that can get you a reservation at the local ‘it’ restaurant, but it provides a far more intimate and homely atmosphere. Its owners often live on the property, caring for their guests’ every need—from cooking breakfast and acting as local guides to providing insider tips about the city they live in. Using these elements as our yardstick, we’ve picked India’s 20 most charming B&Bs, where spending a night (or four) will be an experience to remember
