A neatly maintained house with extremely friendly people. Kasturakka who maintains the place serves you home made kashaya as soon as you enter the place and from there you will fell like you have entered a different, simple and pleasing land. Simple yet beautiful and clean rooms. Food being the main attraction of the place one could easily say that....Read More
All this started with Mayuri (our so called "Manager") and I talking about taking a break from all the monotonicity. Agumbe was on my list since a long long time as some of my friends from NCBS had been there on research trips and the feedback was amazing. All this was accompanied by joining of Rakesh(the "sensible" guy) in our group. The first wor....Read More
It's a very old house, 125 years old. Built in a typical malnad style. Easy to find as well, as Agumbe is a small village and Doddamane is pretty much famous. People in the home are very friendly and the food variety include the malnad style which was very tasty. There is no fixed charges for the food and stay. It's up to the visitor. Suggestio....Read More
You are on your way from Agumbe to Udupi and on the Agumbe main road you see this big old house which is famously called as 'Doddamane'. You stop! You stop.. You go near the door and you knock on it. Someone from inside shouts. Come inside! So you hesitantly walk inside this place which by the way is 175-200 years old.. You look around and you can....Read More

The hotel appearance was good. The rooms were spacious, clean and well maintained with all the amenities at a perfect condition. There was no view from the r....Read More
This is not a luxury hotel or resort. It felt so like home with an excellent hospitality. It is a perfect family destination and you will be provided typical vegetarian food. Tariff is very reasonable. It's better to book your accommodation in advance, as it remains jam packed in the seasons.
Overall, my experience was very good in this hotel. I went there with my family in the month of May. It was a relaxation trip. Rooms were neat, clean, and spacious. TV, AC, hot water, etc. everything was perfect. Services were excellent and on time. Food was available and it was delicious. Both veg and non-veg dishes were served in this hotel. Onl....Read More

If you have posh rooms, marble/ title flooring, beautiful drapes, attached bathrooms in mind for your holiday stay, this is not the place. On the contrary, you want a home away from home, want to show your children how people live in the villages and how they actually take care of guests, then this is the place. Might not be comfortable for people....Read More
Top Reviews of Doddamane
Dodda Manne literally means a Big House- it is a ancestral home of a joint family headed by Kasturi Akka a wonderful woman .This is not a lodge or homestay which is organized to woo people but a good hearted person's venture to give travelers shelter and to provide food .There is no fixed rates they take only what is given at the end of your stay . It is a wonderful experience driving through lovely forest areas and get a good place to halt -i.e at this warm home and be pampered by them. The rooms given to you would depend on availability as there are dormitory type and smaller rooms all over the old house - but expect no privacy .
Good Experience, Homely Feel, True Authentic South Indian Food Servied at fixed timing.
Doddamane is Agumbe is got a immense difference from other resorts or any five star hotels. Location is also good. Hospitality is an excellence in this place. The lady in-charge is the soul of this place. Wonderful home made food is cooked here. Overall a place must to visit.
Dodda mane is a very old traditional house,the rooms are very clean and well maintained,Toilets & sleeping arrangements are very basic. Not recommended for people imagining a fancy homestay or a honey-moon suite!.. Food was excellent like home made food with reasonable price....overall it was a pleasant stay in this place....
The lodge is nearby the bus stand. Location is great. Food was also good . Specially liked the vegeterian food. Try south indian thali . Its delicious. While travelling to Shimoga One should also visit this lodge.
