About The Grannies

We are a cosy homestay nestled in the heart of the chaos and divinity of Varanasi - amongst the oldest living cities in the world. The grannies love to look after their guests, feed them well and give them tips to navigate Varanasi. Granny's Inn is a small window to warm Indian hospitality and a soft landing to the holy mess of Banaras! The grannies make delicious home cooked food with the help of their man Friday - Kashi. The inn is being managed & marketed by Cinnamon Stays - the No. 1 bed & breakfast of Gurgaon and amongst the top 25 B&B’s in India (as per Tripadvisor).
