To start with about Abbydhama, I was not a big fan of homestay but wanted to stay at place close to coffee estate in Coorg and hence chose to stay at this place.

This place won't disappoint you on any front. Right from getting personal call from owner Mr Chid villas to check on our availability for Lunch in morning while we were on way to guiding us to place. ( touched by gesture ) this place is really breath taking with coffee estate in backyard, tree house, next to Abbey falls and town and more over humble support staff. They serve food on order ( as its homestay they confirm if we will join, we ordered Non veg food and trust me best Coorgi experience ( Chicken dish ) we had. Pool was clean, room tidy and ambience awesome.

Only reason, I did not give this place a 7 out of 7 as I feel owners don't want this to be a star hotel. ( They want it to be a homestay ) I feel this can be added to Star class by adding few more benefits like on house menu, bar & Music.

Coorg is very nice place for nature lovers. Let' talk above review of Abbydhama Estate Stay resorts. Resort location is superb. Rooms are very clean and clear. Everything was there.

Issues are service and staff. There is no one permanent on front desk. We have to search person for any small small work. For that we have to go outside room and take round in all places of hotel then only you can find any person.

They have only limited food. Swimming pool was very nice. Overall, I can say if you are ready for compromise services and all, then it is good.

It's awesome to stay there. Total around coffee estate and nice swimming pool. Rooms are quiet good. Bed in room is extraordinary. Reception has two old people, wife and husband are very respectable and humble. Evening we can have light music. In top floor. Near by one falls. It's nice to stay couple.

We have gone to Madikeri - to enjoy the first time first cut home stay experience at Coorg last week (October first week 2015)

The real meaning of Excellence in the following things:

1. Room - Excellent, spacious, comfortable
2. Ambiance - Excellent, natural, very attractive, emotionally bonded
3. Surroundings - Can feel the power of nature
4. Upkeep - Very good, neat and clean
5. Food - Awesome, dedicated staff, very hygienic kitchen (first time even visitors are allowed inside a kitchen)
6. Swimming pool - Very neat and clean
7. Owners - Very amicable, pleasant, nice, very much genuine, humble
8. Staff - Very co-operative, helpful

Hope next time will spend three to four days just chill and relax in the coffee estate.

Nice location. Food is good. Excellent place to stay with family. Foods are not served to rooms. Separate dining room.

No activities. No Camp Fire and music during winter season.

There is also an outdoor swimming pool. Location is good as its quite near to the town.

I love the Coorg. Abbydhama Estate Homestay is very nice to stay. 100 meter distance to Abhi Falls. Coffee estate in middle of home-stay. Locality is very good. This is out of city. Rooms, food is very good. Totally all amenities very good.

It is a beautiful Estate Homestay located on the way to Abbey Falls from Madikeri at 3Km from the maddening crowd of Madikeri Town. Very good hospitality, direct involvement by MD himself. Very neat and clean rooms and surroundings. Scene in the morning during my stay was amazing with rain and mist together unforgettable. No words to mention about tasty Coorg food offered by them. People who wants to stay in a estate stay with homely atmosphere can adopt it without doubt!

It was an awesome experience at Abby Dhama. We were there on 30th November to 1st December. The location was very peaceful and great ambience. Our room at down stairs was awesome. And the veranda through the coffee estate is great. Evening with baji and bread and butter with a cup of coffee. Food was OK for us with 3 options of Non veg and bonfire was also good. Should go there don't miss it.

Travellers,
Finalised on this place after much searching and checking reviews.Starting from booking the place through a call to Mr.Chidvilas till we checked out , it was a text book perfect stay .Cent percent satisfaction. It is a peaceful dhamma, good place to unwind.
This place is situated on the way to Abbi falls ,hence abbhydhama:)..
The place is all what is expected, no doubt it was awarded the Excellence award by Trip Advisor.
The place is set amidst coffee estate offers both traditional stay (Halemane- like individual cottages amidst estate) and Modern stay(Hosamane-stay within the main building) .
Both rooms have all modern required facilities for comfort stay.
For people loving independently , I recommend take Halemane as it is set amidst coffee estate and all is u r's.
For people who wanna stay within , I recommend Hosammane.
We were welcomed warmly by the chirping sound in nature & Mrs. Chidvilas and we were amazed by the landscape the entire stay is setup. It's carefully and aesthetically designed.
We were bowled out by the hospitality shown by Mr & Mrs. Chidvilas, Mr. Vijayraghavan who constantly took care of our needs. They took a few extra steps to make the stay comfortable. I must mention that they are doing this with a PASSION...and anything with PASSION is always done whole heartedly...
Now the other positive side:
**Some things can't be rated, this is a passion which they do and they don't consider this as a work which will make u feel comfortable in the stay:)
**Dinner, Breakfast is too homely, u feel it's healthy and good. We were amazed to find it was a purely vegetarian home stay and later they agreed for serving non-veg also for catering to the travellers need. Kudos to you for catering to the needs of the travellers!!!!!
PS: If you require Non-veg , it has to be informed earlier.
**Vijayraghavan took us & showed us the kitchen and how food was prepared.It was beyond our expectation , we were bowled out by it....
**Mr. Shiva, the house boy was too helpful.He was ready to help with a smile always.
**Take u r time and stroll down the estate , you will enjoy the nature and chirping sound of cricket's and the birds.You will fall in love with the place:)
**Enjoy the tranquility of the nature,visit the swimming pool and watch nature which unfolds into vast areas into horizon.
**Take guidance before entering swimming pool.
**You will feel hospitality at every step, they make sure u r stay is comfortable:)
**There is no room service , only self service , hence you need to go to breakfast area or dining area, they are always ready to serve you with smile:)
** All rooms are provided with mosquito coils but still you may encounter few inside halemane as the cottage is set amidst the estate...
**Another interesting fact:They provide Drivers with a separate rest area:)
My words: YOu will certainly enjoy the stay and be bowled out by the hospitality shown by Mr & Mrs Chidvilas,Mr.Vijayraghavan. I wish their tribe increase and they continue their service with their Charming smile & Passion.
*********MUST VISIT ,MUST STAY IF YOU ARE IN COORG*******************************

Room Tip: If you like being within nature halemanne amidst nature will suit or go in for hossamane.

I reached the place via Greenline bus service and the owner told me that it will reach Coorg by 6-7 AM in morning, but it reached at 4 and I have made a booking for 2 days in this home stay, 1 day before leaving for coorg I called the owner and told him that we will be reaching early by 6-7 AM, as our booking was from 12 and we were doing early check-in so I thought of informing him earlier, as a part of their policy they don't allow early check-in but he told he will charge some amount for a room till 12 and then we will be shifted to other room, I was accompanied by my grandparents, my aunt, my cousin and my friend.

We reached the place via cab paying Rs 500 to the cab driver from private bus stand as we didn't have any option from private bus stand, as we reached the place there were no lights, no guards, and the door of estate locked, we called the owner several times and he didn't pick the call, for half an hour we stood there and kept on banging the gates with elder parents, in such rains, then we decided to leave to the bus stand and wait there or arrange some hotel there only, as soon as we reached the bus stand and we tried once more. The guy received the call talking harshly and shouting at us "why are you disturbing me early morning and better you stay back there only till 12" were his words, then we pleaded a lot and he asked us to come, he gave us a room worth Rs 1000 from morning 6 to 12 that too 6 people in a room and was smelling badly like a warehouse. We were very much annoyed with his behaviour but we kept quiet as our family was there.

We had asked for some cab details from him and at that time he started a discussion about dinner and we asked for the menu, we told him that we will call him by 3:30 PM If we will have dinner here only, when we reached the hotel at night, the servants came to us asking when we will have the dinner and we refused saying we already had and we had not ordered it, then other one came to us asking whether we bought non veg food and we said no, then the owner called in my grandparents room and started shouting that you have wasted food. Then my friend went asking him about the issue and said that you spoiled my day and even he told he will throw us out of hotel as we were staying free of cost in it that was the last time we decided to leave the place next morning even though we had paid for one more day.

When guests make very little homework to know about place where they stay before making bookings through agencies, miscommunication, misunderstandings sometimes happens.
Madam Vaishali booked through GOIBIBO and since the phone number of the guest was not given to us, it was difficult for us to call them for any assistance. A day prior to their arrival Mam called and said that they would reach by 7 a.m. I gave phone number of our promoter Mr. Vijay to call when they arrive at 7.00.a.m. I made it clear that check in time is 12 noon and only wash area available till the earlier guest checks out. But as said in the review bus arrived early. Things would have been smoother if they had stuck on their timings of 7 a.m. since the gate opens at 6.30 am, its true no one responded till 6.00 a.m. To keep a watch man or a guard its not a resort but a pure estate homestay and guests appreciates that gates are not open in the dark as a matter of security. Looking at the missed call Promoter Mr.Vijay extended a courtesy call only to receive a very rough and unwarranted response. Still a dormitory with 3 beds was given for rest till 12 noon with breakfast both free. Morning experience, rain etc., naturally might have spoiled the mood of the guest.
As far as dinner is concerned, all would appreciate that we offered dinner and did not deny as our PRINCIPLE says \'Anna Datho Sukhi Bhava\'(Who offer food be happy!). When the guest said he did not order food, it was a pain for Mr.Vijay that food is wasted and to be thrown out(not the guest to be thrown out as mentioned in the review). I was away that day and next day morning, on the breakfast table I personally served hot dosas to each one and they were happy and they did not complain me anything. But in the review they have said that I, the owner spoke and threatened them which is far from truth and lack of homework again.

We respect the guests for they are valuable to us. Only request with the guests is to communicate with us before their arrival as far as timings, food, weather etc., are concerned.
