Quaint guesthouse Quaint guesthouse

by Gautam_Rathor on April 17, 2019

Location The guest house is located in one of the bye lanes off the Jaipur Agra highway and is about 10 minutes rickshaw ride from the star attraction of Bharatpur i.e Keoladeo National Park. Guest House The guest house belongs to Mr. Devendra Singh and is managed by him alongwith his brother. Devendra who earlier has worked as guide and naturalist in various wildlife resorts. Devendra was all help in answering all our queries before the booking and providing advice. The guest house is small and the premises itself is neat and clean. It was surprising that he did not ask for an advance as the time of booking the room and just simply said if you are cancelling the visit then kindly inform in advance. The guest house has 6 rooms with attached toilets. The guest house is primarily for persons who just want to visit Keoladeo National Park, hence one will mostly find photographers and birders and not the holiday/picnic crowd. The look of the guest house is enhanced with potted plants all over with a variety of colourful flowers which enhances the ambience. The dining room is on the ground floor next to the kitchen and is well stocked with books. Devendra also helped us in hiring a car for our visit to National Chambal Sanctuary near Dholpur. He had also arranged two richshaw puller cum guides for our visits into the bird park. A good rickshaw puller cum guide is essential to have good time. They also offer bicycles if the guests want to use it for moving inside the bird park. Rooms : We being 3 of us, we had asked for an extra bed. On being led to our room on the first floor, I was pleasantly surprised as the room was quite big. I initially had thought that the 3rd bed would be small in size which was not the case. The room was equipped with a double sized bed, TV and a big rack for storing clothes, bags, accessories, etc. The rooms, bathroom, mattress and linens were neat and clean and there was no musty smell even though it was peak winter. Food : We had opted for an American Plan and veg food. The best thing is that we can have the choice of our food and not pre-decided dishes by the management as generally is the case. We used to inform Devendra what we wanted for next meal and he would graciously prepare them. In the morning we used to have alo parathas with toast and the lunch and dinner would consist of chapattis, rice, dal and vegetables of our choice. We were never forced to have food as per the guest houses choice. The food was simple and very tasty and we really relished the food. If required then the guest house can arrange to send breakfast and lunch for the guests who are visiting the bird park. For many this is a boon as visitors mainly the photographers and birders can leave for the bird park early in the morning and return in the evening. Staff The guest house has negligible staff as I could just see 2 other people and one being the cook who would also do other chores. The staff was friendly and helpful. Activities As the prime reason for visiting Bharatpur is the bird park, there is nothing else to do in the guest house except for having rest after a full day of birding and photography. However, one can visit National Chambal Sanctuary near Dholpur about (2 hours drive) for a birding mainly for skimmers and gharials though a variety of bird and animal can be seen. Also Fatehpur Sikri is not very far off and can be visited for an afternoon session. Conclusion It was an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

This is the place to stay in Bharatpur, close to the Park...the owners are absolutely friendly and always have a yes to everything, you are helped with your birding too. The room comfort is Good...Food is like home made and fresh. Unfortunately couldn't meet Devendra Singh the owner as he was not in town, but his absence was more than made up by his brother. Take my word there are other fancy looking hotels in Bharatpur but this is the place to stay.

Little oasis of bird lovers paradise Little oasis of bird lovers paradise

We arrived in Bharatpur after a long and hot train journey from Delhi and couldn't have asked for a better welcome than Iora. We caught a tuk tuk from the station and the driver knew where it was so I assume it's quite well known. We were greeted by the proprietor Devandra (who paid for my tuk tuk as I didn't have change on me). It's a beautiful little guest house about 15 minutes from Keoladeo bird sanctuary and feels more like a homestay than a guest house. There's a library of wildlife, photography and nature books and a little courtyard with a lovely well kept garden. The kitchen serves awesome home cooked meals at a reasonable price in the clean and airy dining room (the thali and aloo gobi were delicious) and the rooms are comfy, roomy and clean. WiFi, hot and cold showers and a fan and extractor fan make for a comfortable stay but really the main attraction is the staff. Devandra is really kind and gentle person who runs a lovely home. He's a photographer and naturalist by trade and is extremely knowledgeable about the nearby keoladeo bird sanctuary. He assisted us with planning our day at the reserve and lent us binoculars and a bird book and made a packed breakfast for us. There were bicycles for rent and he is able to organise a guide and or cycle rickshaw. The other staff members were really sweet and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable and comfortable, even going so far as to find us a tuk tuk for our train at 5 30 am! 2 nights stay 2000 Binocuoars, 5 meals, water, tea and tuk tuk cams to 1700 There's not much to do in Bharatpur other than the bird sanctuary so you only really need a night or two but we could have easily stayed longer at this little slice of paradise. Thank you so so much and we hope to be back one day in season for more birds! Bobby and Carmen

After fumbling all pros & cons of hotels and guest houses in Bharatpur through TripAdvisor, we chose Iora guest house for our stay. And after the first interaction, we found that it was a successful choice. Owner Devendra is a very soft spoken person. He is always looking after the needs of the boarders. Rooms are not having modern furniture and gadgets, but all those get diluted because of its smell of homely fervour. Rooms are specious, and neat and clean. Food served in the restaurant is very tasty and also reasonable. One major attraction of Iora is the collection of books on birds.
