Beautiful location of the resort, new and spacious well-designed cottages, very good especially if you need place in the room for children to run around in. We had gone as a group of 2 families and had a very nice time. They also arrange some programmes in the evening by local villagers, and that was very pleasant. The only downside is the food which is pretty average, especially the dinner was quite disappointing.

I had a great time! The place is quite beautiful and the naturalists are knowledgable and it is clear that they love their home of BR Hills.

The hotel outlook on arrival is good and one feels that one has come to a nice location. welcome drink is served to guests. all the managers of different departments surround you and say hi! you feel elated. the management staff is 20 to 30 years aged. Most of them are trained on soft skills and hence are good in using these attributes than practically ensuring what they try to impress. catering section is not up to expectations. there is no senior manager who can handle and interact with guests. the staff is inadequately experienced and trained to give a feeling of comfortable stay at the end. Charges are exorbitant vis-a-vis comforts in all aspects as a overhaul assessment. The hotel is about two months old and i happened to be 6th guest there.

Best Experience: there is a temple Biligiri Rangana Devasthana. Ancient temple visited by Maharajas of Mysore. Soliga\'s abode and hence lot many traditional impressions can be seen and heard. But the nature is bountiful and the comfort stay is more due to this nature only. Jeep safari is conducted by forest department at K Gudi. Quite cheap and worth visiting safari. Some should have luck to sight a tiger or an elephant. dodda(big) sampige (flower name) mara(tree) is also interesting spot to visit. A stay of two days is sufficient. A low budget hotel called Giri darshini is excellent in meeting your appitite. Sambar and rice makes you feel at home.

Worst Experience: Not happy with management.
