What travellers are saying about this hotel
Value For Money:
I visited in Hambi and stayed in Gouri residency in the month of January 2017 during a holiday trip. The destination of the place was excellent and the location of the hotel was excellent that was near the tourist location. The appearance of the hotel was good that was looking normal. The front office of the hotel was good which was very simple. The overall services in the hotel were very good they were providing on time. The room facility in the hotel was very good that was clean and neat. The food facility was good that was tasty and quality food. I booked my stay through online. There was no WiFi facility in the hotel. But there were a campfire no indoor and outdoor activities in the hotel. Totally I was comfortable during the stay and I will recommend this hotel to other upcoming travelers too.
I visited Hampi in the month of December 2016. This was a holiday trip with friends. I booked my stay online. The location of the hotel was away from the city. The appearance of the hotel was good. The front desk staff was very helpful. Service was good and they are helpful. This hotel was worth for money. The room was comfortable and they were made with bamboo sticks. Food was not up to the mark. Complimentary hot water was provided. WiFi was available but it was slow. Extra facilities were not available. My suggestion to the hotelier is to improve the taste in food. I would suggest this hotel to others.
The purpose of my visit was both to relax and experience the rich heritage of my State Karnataka. The resort was simple, homely and perfect village environment Pros -. 1) Best part of the resort was the yummy food which includes different varieties in breakfast(American, Spanish, North and South Indian) and Dinner(both Veg and Non veg). The rates are not very expensive and are affordable and impresses both in quality and quantity. Although the menu is very extensive and posh the taste is like ghar ka khaana. This can be work as an advantage and for a few otherwise 2) Host of the resort, Mr. Sri Harsha. An ever smiling sweet gentleman who helps with most of the things you would need. His family lives around and they too are friendly. They provide you with small soap(Medimix) and cotton Bath towels 3) Simple ambience with trees, small garden and swings in front of every room. It is located in between of the fields and since we had been in monsoon, we got to see nice greenery everywhere. There is a swing in front of every room 4) Sanapur lake reservoir is just 100 meters away with very good roads. We would got every morning for a walk and also went for a coracle ride in the lake 5) Excellent location for bird watching and harmless monkeys Cons :. 1) Please do not have very high expectation to receive a VIP treatment. We had to opt for the standard rooms due to less availability and it had only basic amenities. I felt like I had visited my grandparents home and no other option other than adjust. The beds are neat and has a mosquito net covering it, an attached toilet-bath, which is again basic, with no heater. There was no mirror in the standard room, but when I asked them the host family did provide me a hand held mirror. There is a fan, tube and a single plug point. Cleanliness is okay. (I have mentioned the smallest of small facts, I assume it might be helpful for novice travellers) 2) If you have come by your own vehicle and plan to explore the city with it, then the distance by road becomes very far. Actually the resort is very close to heritage sites, if you can cross the river and then hire another vehicle on the other side Advice - Overall the experience was good. Please opt for Special rooms. It's worth it with amazing view of the green fields surrounding it. Harsha also told us that he had plans to make arrangements for campfire, barbecue, etc. It is a best place to give the feel of the nature's glory and calm rural life.
People:. People were really kind and are quite friendly and decent. You would almost feel at home at this place. This resort is managed by a family. They keep it very neat. They try to do what ever they can to make your stay memorable . . Location:. This resort has two sides, paddy fields and on the third side Reservoir. The reservoir road is quite scenic. Morning walk on this road is what we would remember for years to come. We went in rainy season, so it was even more flush green and reservoir was full of water Amenities:. This is a non-fancy resort. It doesn't have any fancy swimming pool or heavy planned activities. The management is trying to keep it more like a feel @ home place . They have swings attached to each room. It was such a nice feeling. The surrounding was really quite and clean. We were competing to sleep on these swings Food:. Awesome food. They have unlimited breakfast @ 60. The taste is amazing. So, we couldn't control ourselves and we went wild at it :). But as the management is kind, they encouraged us even further. The large tea is one other beautiful thing. Taste was sort of okay, but the quantity made us order is almost every time we visited there restaurant.
We stayed there for 2 days and rented 4 rooms. A few issues we were apprehensive about before going there were the following:. 1) Mosquitoes in the night. This was taken care of in each room by the mosquito nets and mosquito repellents . 2) Clean bathrooms. The bathrooms were decent and at the same time looked as simple as they could be, which added to the feeling of living in a hut/camp . 3) Hot water early morning. This was available . 4) Food, the food was certainly above expectations, though a bit costly . 5) Proximity to attractions. The resort is nested in beautiful surroundings with a dam nearby. One can go for boating which is at a walking distance. For visiting other attractions, the resort arranged for van Now, the fun bits:. 1) While using the van, some of us felt too adventurous and climbed up the van on its roof. No sooner had we started than we were grounded by the local policemen. The policemen started to ask for a hefty amount/penalty. Luckily for us, the resort owner helped reduce the penalty. After having paid it, we continued with our journey on the rooftop . 2) There was an ancient Luna at the resort, which we all enjoyed riding amongst the uneven terrain of Hampi . 3) Going for an early morning walk close to the dam is a great experience, from where you can watch the sunrise . That's all about the resort. Apart from that, I highly recommend Hampi.
The owner is courteous, the swings are a delight and the view is amazing. The rooms open up to lush green paddy fields and mountains in the background. Amenities are basic but that is the charm of the place. Best time of the year to visit is january and please talk to the staff if you need anything. They will try and arrange it for you if its not already available with them.
Very friendly host. Food was superb. Loved the pudina tea and nutella pancake. Location is scenic and perfect for a peaceful weekend getaway. Resort is located near the water reservoir which is really beautiful and you can enjoy a little splash and swim.
