Great Place to Stay! This is a hotel located about 2.5kms from the city center. The hotel has a terrace with great view. You can set up your table there for lunch / dinner / party. All mobile networks wont work. Airtel, Idea, BSNL and Jio was working great. Since the hotel is located in a remote location, you will have to carry all your stuff with you before you reach or you'll have to drive back to the city which is not very convenient. The staff are excellent. Mr Naveen guided us to the hotel. Due to ATM difficulties and new notes, we didn't want to drain our cash. Mr Naveen provided his A/C details and we could transfer funds and pay the bills (which was extremely helpful). Mr Pradeep was in charge of the property when we visited. He was very courteous and helpful. He arranged dinner and helped us plan our trip. The rooms were clean. The surroundings have lots of flies and huge spiders. So we had ensure that room doors were closed whenever we sit around in the balcony. The property has a lot of outdoor sofas and seating arrangements. That's exactly what is required to enjoy a place like Madikeri. Hot water was available round the clock. They use gas geysers and solar water heaters. Only suggestion is to arrange a power backup. There was electricity disruptions throughout the day. You could plan on installing a generator or a UPS. We didn't have lot of problems with this as electricity disruptions don't happen at night. But we couldn't charge our phones and camera on the day we left. Great place to stay! Choose this place for a peaceful stay!
