“Absolutely lovely stay...”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed there for two nights, it was marvellous. Divia and her parents were very friendly and helpful, the room was absolutely clean, breakfast you can choose different options, as well as for dinner. You can use the rooftop as you wish, and the living room in the upper rooms if the appartment is free.

“Charming homestay providing good value for money”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Charming homestay at a quiet residential suburb of Mysuru, with easy access to the city centre. Excellent home-cooked food and very comfortable.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 31 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I returned to Rooftop Retreat after a gap of 7 years but although the location has seen a few changes the friendly welcome, the excellent food and service have not.
The flat is extremely clean, well maintained, and had everything I needed.
I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Mysore.

“Still a great homestay”
Reviewed 21 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Returned to Rooftop after 4 years. There have been some infilling in the road but it is still a delightful place to stay.

The Keralan food is wonderful. If you don't have the chance to visit Kerala you can at least experience the cusine.

Rooms are clean, confortable and allow a view of life in suburban Mysore.
