The Granny's Inn is being run by two feisty sisters - Asha (67) and Aruna (64). When Aruna Singh, inherited this house in Varanasi (Benares) from her father, she wanted to put it to use in a way that would keep her busy. Varanasi being a tourism hub, Aruna and her older cousin Asha, decided to start a home stay, Granny’s Inn. It helped that Asha had already had some first hand experience in hospitality, courtesy her daughter and son-in-law who run a B&B in Delhi NCR. So the sisters, who say they have a “good understanding,” decided to join hands and convert the old house into a comfortable family run inn. They make good hosts. They supervise every aspect of Granny’s Inn, making sure that the rooms are clean, the laundry done, small details taken care of and the food cooked to everyone’s satisfaction. They are helped by Kashi - the family cook and Mayur - the young manager and the guide who knows English, Hindi and some French. The grannies are from a Hindi medium background. They speak English but not very fluently. But they have been getting good practice after speaking to the guests who come from all over the world. You will find them loving and welcoming!
