Its beautifully designed, and has spacious and well–appointed rooms appropriate for corporate accommodations, weekend getaways, conferences , medical tourists & foreign visitors alike
All around you and from every balcony, the views are of lush greenery. The rooms are equipped with a mini fridge, spring mattresses, hair dryer in the bathroom .
Our Estate B&B is the perfect mix of every material comfort along with a more homely vibe, which keeps things informal and casual. The living area downstairs is perfect for some rest & relaxation, as is the small library near by – full of great books.
The garden overlooking your room is also a nice hang out area – with a hammock and a swing to while away the time. We also arrange to get masseurs to your room to get you whatever spa treatment you would like.
In India, the idea of a B&B is a little different from Europe. Here, the rooms are separate from the owner’s home and you get all your meals – not just breakfast!
The owner is also the trustee of a non-profit organisation called MAGIC, and a small cut from your bill goes towards this charity for the uplift of the girl child.

With common courtesy
The Estate is a gorgeous property with a huge garden and beautiful, spacious rooms. It is extremely clean and the esthetics are just perfect. I loved the decor and the greenery around. The staff is pleasant, accommodating and very helpful. Breakfast is delicious with muffins and croissants and a variety of Indian breakfast options as well. I even tried dinner here and it was very well made. They took care of all that I wanted for a sumptuous home-cooked meal. They even served dessert in the end which was delicious! I often struggle to find a good cup of tea during my travel. They got it just right! Brownie points for the chef. :)
I loved my experience at The Estate and would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Delhi. The area where it is situated is very well-connected with Metro, buses etc. It is close to some of the best shopping malls, hospitals and eateries. Sometimes when you are visiting a new place, all you need is a place with a lot of warmth and beauty that makes you feel at home. The Estate is that very place in Delhi.
I checked in on a business trip for a couple of nights, pretty late, and the reception was just what I expected in a homestay....warm and honest. The neighborhood was gated and security was strict. Perfect for your family and the welcome silence is just relaxing, when you come back after the entire day...
The room was pretty large, very well done in earthy and wenge tones, with a large clean bathroom , clean towels and decent essentials.
Breakfast was large, wholesome and the coffee was simply great, because it was a pour-over, not an instant! You can order food from a host of home delivery menus provided and the quality is good. Service is discerning and reasonably discreet. A quick press service for your clothes left me impressed!!
However I did not get to meet the hostess, neither on entry nor on egress. Great place and I would definitely come back !
The Estate is simply beautiful and offers a very calm retreat away from bustling Delhi. I only met Mamta shortly but she seemed genuinely nice and caring. This Airbnb almost feels like a hotel as you have a friedge in your room, there is staff to help you etc. The rooms are nicely furnished and pretty big. Internet wasn't working while I was there but I understand that was a more general problem and not limited to the Estate. All in all a pleasant experience!

About the Host, Mamta
When running a Bed & Breakfast in Delhi was quite an unheard of thing, Mamta decided to undertake such a project. Coming from a hospitality back ground and having spent 15 years in the Indian hotel industry, her vision was to create an alternative accommodation option which would prove to be a different experience for the foreign visitor to India. A "non-hotel" experience with the basics of a comfortable hotel.
Combining the pros of living in a hotel, with the charm of seeing the Indian way of living from close quarters; required using her experience, education and the keen insight developed through extensive international travel. The right balance emerged in the shape of The Estate Bed & Breakfast.
As a daughter of an officer of the Indian Army, Mamta had the opportunity to travel widely along with her parents. Professional education included Mass Communication courses from University of Houston, Hotel Management Course from India and a BA English Honours Degree. An effective communicator along with a warm hospitable persona makes her a memorable hostess as we see from the many reviews written by her guests on her website.
Mamta & her family have opened their home & hearts to many travelers from the outside world and have taken the standards of service set for a BNB's much higher by the attention to detail & quality awareness standards.
