Good food from the hotel along good location as well as friendly staff services and the rooms were spacious, neat, and clean along basic amenities but there was no view from rooms. There were no activities at the hotel as well as no delay during check-in and check-out process and the hotel didn't provide any cabs services for other uses. The decoration of the hotel was simple and there was no difficulty in reaching the hotel and it was a comfortable stay as well as located in convenient destination.
We stayed in the hotel during the month of May 2014. The hotel did not give any facilities although they charge a lot. There was no maintenance of A/Cs. They will never clean the room. They don't have plastic plates to have your food. They have only one hotel menu which serves very pathetic food.
I visited Coorg with my family (having 2 kids) as a weekend destination, we had booked this hotel as ambiance looks great as per photo posted on traveling site, and also we want an above average hotel for our stay as with kids you need some additional amenities and support. As they said the first impression is the last, we checked in at about 11 AM in morning and the manager there ask me to stay 1 hour outside in sun as the check-in time was from 12 AM, this was ridiculous to me as there are no visitor to this hotel at that point and it seems hotel is almost empty, I asked him that I am not here for business purpose and I cannot be very precise on time when on vacation, at my wife request they allowed us to check in. The first impression of manager there is that he is not having any experience in hotel industry, he looks like a village guy appointed as manager, I double sure that he is the only manager there and to my shock he was. The room was big as promised, but again AC was not working on my request they turn it on but again it went OFF/ON again and again, so we left bothering that and tried to accommodate as we also are not very habitual of AC environment because of Bangalore weather. There was no mineral water supplied, even there was no water at the time of check in, they provided us with some local water in a really very dirty kind of bottle, I asked them to give some water in my own private bottle which we bought during travel. No market nearby a totally deserted place, no greenery, no garden, no children’s play area, even no shade for parking, even for small things like milk and sugar you had to go Kushal Nagar nearly 2 km to buy them. They had a call-on food service, you had to call to a nearby restaurant and they will deliver food no other option, even hotel management had no cutlery like plates and spoons, we had eaten in news paper. Worst nightmares: ordered chilly paneer in dinner, and had received chilly chicken and then starts a drama between hotel manager as he is not willing to accept that its chicken, it’s almost 10 at night and I had to go local market to buy some bread and butter to feed myself. At checkout during the inspection it had found out that one of the cloth napkin (6 inch / 6 inch) was missing, and I asked management it had been used by me for personal thing (my child is having cough vomiting due to weather swing and unfortunately we used hotel napkin to clean him) and it had become a real big issue, the argument went to an extend that I had to unpack my lauage and show them the real napkin and its condition, I just asked them I don’t want it to be used by others as its might infect it’s the only reason I had taken it and I am going to throw it anyways, but manager imposed a fine of Rs 200 as I were stealing that napkin. I don’t know after paying Rs.4000 as rent per night how come any one dream of stealing such a silly napkins. Advise: due to commercialization in Coorg local villagers had come up with hotels please. Reserve a hotel (even a city budget hotel) which is having experience in hotel industries, otherwise you will be in a same situation as you faced with your old landlords whose only income is rent and looting the tenants
