Posted 18 Jun, 2011

One of the best experiences ever had. The cottage is great, secluded and peaceful..It has got a really great view of the plush green hills below and also has a excellent valley view. If you want a private place where you want to trip inside as well as outside with no one to disturb you, this is the best place to stay at for such a reasonable price (The terrace room comes under 1750/- only including taxes per night ). It has only got two rooms on the ground floor and two rooms on the first floor. So this place is not crowded. The rooms are terrific having all amenities such as 24 hrs hot water, kettle, TV (though I suggest people not to switch the idiot box on for your stay) etc.. The owner N. Balaji is very polite and takes cares of bookings in such a easy way and the caretaker Mathew is one hell of a guy. He will take care of anything you ask him. You can even ask him to book you your return tickets. The food served is amazing for a very reasonable price and you can have the luxury of eating it watching the view from your terrace. Overall, if you are planning a trip to kodai and you want absolute privacy with all the comforts and all you want to do is stare at the beautiful calm hills and valleys, I would suggest this is the place to go.. Mathew can take care of arranging trips in Kodai too, but all we did was trip from this home..Overall, this place is for people who just want noise out of their lives for some time...Beware, the only leisure activities you will get there is the captivating view.

Nice place to enjoy

Posted 9 Jan, 2016

B Hive is simply a good place to enjoy the climate with calm because it is outer area from the town. Also the foods are prepared as like home made which is good for health. After that the room entrance and window was located straight opposite to hills. Apart from that the care taken by the hotelier was fantastic. Overall it is a fabulous place to enjoy for a couples.

Posted 23 Sep, 2011

Overall it was wonderful staying in B's hive. We went there to celebrate our marriage anniversary and we felt we cannot find a better place. This home-stay is located in a residential area. we stayed in the first floor . It has a spacious and valley view sit out. I still remember the moonlight dinner we had in the sit-out . The service was superb . The rooms are very well maintained. A very smooth check-in and check-out .... thanks to Mathew(caretaker). The owner Balaji sir took personal attention on every visitor which we really liked ...Thanks to Balaji sir and a special thanks to Jeyashree .

Good hotel to stay with good services

Posted 2 Feb, 2016

I had been to Kodaikanal with family and stayed in this hotel. It was convenient to locate the hotel and it was bit far from the city. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The staff members in the hotel were helpful and friendly. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was nice. The room allotted to me was spacious and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. There was a nice view from the hotel room. I ate food in the hotel and it was good in quality and taste with varieties, and the price was affordable. There were no activities in the hotel. The hotel organized for sightseeing trips. Overall, the destination and stay in the hotel was good and I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.

All in All its a Great Place to Visit, Definitely offering better service and Value for Money with Homely ambiance than any other place in Kodai.
