I visited to this hotel in the month of June 2016 with couple. Destination was excellent. Location of the hotel was located centre of the city was easy to locate. Appearance of the hotel was excellent from interior and exterior. Check in check out was on time. Staff were not at the hotel cooperative and friendly. Overall service was excellent. Room was neat and clean and was spacious. Amenities were available in the hotel were in working condition. Homely food from the hotel was excellent in quality and quantity. There was WiFi facility available. Activities were available in the hotel was excellent. Tariff was comfortable. I will recommend this hotel to others.
We were actually in a dilemma to recommend this place to others because it was too good and we are a bit jealous in letting everyone know about this place, felt we may miss the privacy part of it. Having taken the help of fellow travelers felt the need to let others know about b's hive. We were there between 4th and 7th June'13 and was staying at terrace standard. The room was clean, neat and tidy. The valley view was excellent and infact we have spent an entire day watching the mists, clouds passing by and the panoramic view from the balcony of the room. What a sight. That very moment felt the money paid was too little compared to what we were enjoying . Ever since we landed the caretaker made us feel like we are the actual owners of the place. We got the homely food prepared by his aunt, no frills simple and delicious home food with sufficient quality and quantity . . Did we forget to mention about the place and its owner, he is a plain speaking man and assured that whatever we see on the photos about B's hive would be there for sure. Confessed there would limitations in terms of food [since it is prepared outside and predominantly south Indian] and the approach road [ a bit narrow and would be testing for amateur drivers]. Whether it is at the inquiry stage or at the time of telecon during the stay or a thank you message after check out, his response was very professional and further corroborated by the caretaker who mentioned that the owner used to inquire about the well being of his guests almost on a daily basis. May his tribe increase. Folks, no talll claims, no frills, no lies and yet a neat and tidy simple place with a dedicated caretaker and a honest owner = b's Hive . Will certainly recommend to people and would stay there in coming years also Room Tip: Terrace standard. Stayed June 2013, travelled with family
We were 3 families with kids and opted to take the complete cottage. We visited in the first week of June. May be it is just one of the bad day for us, but experience is very bad Location & access:. The cottage is in the middle of residential colony and facing the small valley. View is good As intertwined by resort owner, road is narrow and resort is at dead end. To go back you have to U-turn your vehicle on the narrow road. Or go in reverse all the way around 200m-300m, where you get some descent space to make turn using some private property. If you are not a experienced driver you will find it very tough. Two other families who came along with me had tough time Cleanliness:. Bed sheets / pillow covers were not washed. The reason we got was it was raining for last 3 days. I thing resort management should keep enough back up Amenities:. There was power issue in the morning(low voltage). The water got over in the overhead tank. Some geysers didn't work. Some of ended up taking Bath with cold water. Some skipped Bath because of non availability of water. Care taker gave water in buckets from ground floor sump. We carried the buckets to bathrooms for toilet usage. I am sure no one expects this kind of mess on a holiday trip, even if you are looking for budget accommodation. Bathroom lock got broken. Reason I got from care taker was heavy usage in summer, lot of repair work is pending Positives:. Care taker was helpful. You can place food order to him, he will deliver mostly on time(+30 min) Overall:. I don't recommend to any. You can opt for hotels where your basic needs like parking, water, clean bed sheets are met.
Stayed here in the month of May with family. Experience at the cottage was excellent. To reach this place was a little difficult otherwise the facilities were out standing. Location of the hotel was excellent. Check In/Out was smooth. Rooms were excellent and comfortable. Breakfast served was good enough. Service was excellent. I would stay in be Hive again if we go to Kodai Canal again.
The overall experience of the hotel was good. The complimentary breakfast was provided by the hotel. The behaviour of staff was friendly in the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers. I had visited this hotel for family trip. The activities were not arranged by the hotel. The parking facility was provided by the hotel.
