Stayed at Balki's Homestay during the year end (29 Dec 15 to 1 Jan 16) vacation for 3 nights with family. Very simple & decent place close to (about 200mtrs) the Madikeri bus stand. So all the places within Madikeri town are walkable distance. Our main purpose was to visit places in & around Madikeri for sightseeing during the day time & the homestay was basically for spending the late evenings & nights comfortably (a nice place to sleep). Food is delicious here which needs to be ordered at least 4 hours before, for them to prepare during dinner time. Other services like housekeeping, room service etc are also very prompt. Ideal place for a budget traveller. Had a great time during the trip.
It was a pleasant & comfortable stay. Service was very good. Food was homely. Tariff wise not much expensive. Surrounding was good. Overall we had a nice stay. The bed was very comfortable as such we are in home. The clarity of the TV was very good. Got all the channels. The staff were very attentive and active. Provided us all the things we needed. The meals were not that much expensive. Hot water was provided for 24 hours through geyser.
Amazing home for a group of 9 people or more. All basic amenities with good location add up to the excellent service they provide at economical tariff. However, one has to carry the props for activities by self, but that is understandable. May be, some more wash rooms per home can be provided as we got late for sight seeing because of lack of sufficient number bathrooms.
Homestay was good. Per day tariff of the room was Rs. 1500. I reached there comfortably without any problem. Owner of the hotel was very supportive there. It was around 1 or 1.5 km away from bus stand. Behaviour wise, staff was good there. They were quickly attending to all our requests. They arranged a taxi for us immediately. Food was tasty there. Buffet system was not there. Breakfast was complimentary in this hotel. Dinner we took from outside. My room was small at that time because it was a peak season but other rooms were very spacious in that hotel. Room was well-furnished there. TV, bed, and other amenities were present there and they all were in proper working condition. No view was available from the room. Daily cleaning was done in the room. We stayed there for 2 days. Activity wise, nothing was there. Coorg as a destination is very good. Location wise, it was also very good. Front office was not there. Service wise, it was excellent. Room was good. Taxi was arranged by them for outing but it was chargeable. I had gone there with family in August.
Hotel is very good with excellent room, camp fire is at balcony and no restrictions. Can have some fun sitting over there, boozing (chicks). However, they will charge a bit high, hospitality is very good by the boy. Food(Pork) is the most special item in the Coorg. Climate is moderate, cool breezes and felt like I was in heaven for a moment.
