"Best stay with neatly maintained room "

6.3/7
Posted 10 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 10 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 12 months 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.

"Services were excellent; food was delicious"

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....

"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....

"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 see an amazing house.. You enter the kitchen, you hear a old lady in her 70's saying "bani" (come in) and you enter and your greeted by a very warm and comfortable smile. She asks you to go freshen up and come. After that you'll experience something which will remain with you for a long long time. Kasturi akka has been doing this kinda service since 40yrs and her motto is to make sure no one says Agumbe doesn't have a good place to stay. Let me talk about the ambience of the place. This is a very old house which is maintained nicely. It gives you an chance to live like how people in the villages do. It has a sense of calm. It makes you feel at peace with yourself. Now the service. What can I say about it. Kasturi akka treats you like her own child and gives you everything that is necessary to have an awesome experience. Her smile will make all your worries go away and will make you feel comfortable. She makes you so comfortable and you create such a bond with her that you'll feel a lump in your throat when your leaving this place. The whole family will help you have an awesome experience. There mantra is 'Atithi Devo Bhava' and they live by it.. Now the food. If you want to enjoy the best south Indian food then this is place to be. They service you so many varieties of dishes on a banana leaf. They take the effort to make sure no one goes feeling half empty. Akka will even make you some food if you ask her to go on treks. She'll advise you on the places to see. Now the rate! They won't demand anything. You can give how much ever you want and they'll take it. My suggestion is. Every person who is living in the metro city go to this place and just realise you don't need money to be happy and how peaceful life can be. A must visit place. Thanks Akka for the best time of my life :) Will come back soon!!

"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 .

"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 who are born and bought up with all facilities in the city. The only problem we had was it was not attached bath room and I had a 3.5yr kid and carrying her for her night trip to the bathroom was difficult.
