"Best stay with neatly maintained room "

6.3/7
Posted 11 months ago

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....

"A Rejenuvating trip to Agumbe"

5.8/7
Posted 11 months ago

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....

"Wish to visit again"

5.5/7
Posted 1 year ago

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....

"Home away from home with best service"

6.8/7
Posted 1 year ago

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....

"Well maintained rooms and friendly staff"

5.1/7
Posted 2 years ago

The hotel was very finely located near the city and I did not face any difficulty in reaching the place. I was there for a college trip. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and obedient. 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....

"Felt like home; good food, reasonable tariff"

5.8/7
Posted 2 years ago

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.

"Home away from home"

5.3/7
Posted 3 years ago

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....

"Wonderful experience"

5.3/7
Posted 4 years ago

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 .

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....
