Home stay at its best!

Posted 30 Dec, 2015

A perfect destination for a home stay. As the name goes we were treated just as their guests by the owner Mr. Bopanna. It is a beautiful heritage cottage maintained with the same old beauty with neat rooms and bath. The food served was authentic. The hosts were very helpful in guiding us to take tours in & around Madikeri and also suggested us the must try restaurants. Overall the stay was a bliss.

A decent home stay

Posted 31 Aug, 2015

Its an affordable home stay in the heart of Madikeri. Owners Muthu and Bopanna are friendly, helpful and informative. Traditional Kodava cuisine is excellent and worth to try at Gowri Nivas. The food was different and tasty each day. Small but beautiful property. We stayed at the home stay for 2 nights. We are a family of 6 adults and 2 boys. The cottage with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths was an independant house set in lush green garden gave both comfort and privacy. The homeowners gave us a great insight into Kodava culture with tips on some sightseeing. Stay was memorable and we highly recommend Gowri Nivas. .

Polite staff; spacious room with aminities

Posted 4 Nov, 2014

This Hotel was conveniently located and it's a home stay. The look of the hotel was good. We didn't face any problem during check-in and check-out. The housekeeping staff were good and polite. Room was spacious, neat and clean. All basic amenities were provided. But they have only non-AC room. It's a home stay and they provide home cooked food. There were no activities organized by the hotel. The hotel was very nice in terms of rooms and service. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers. The hotel is very clean and if there is any complaint regarding anything. The staff were very co-operative hence whoever goes there will be comfortable.

Decent hotel with limited facilities

Posted 27 Oct, 2014

The hotel was conveniently located. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The appearance of the hotel both inside and outside was acceptable. There was a car parking area in the hotel. It was not that great and attractive. The rooms were neat and clean and well maintained. The amenities like TV geyser air conditioner were functioning well. There was a nature view seen through the room. The food was very good and we were satisfied with the food quality. We took vegetarian cuisine and it was room serviced. There was no delay in check in and check out. The activities were very limited we made use of the activities. We were not aware of the sight seeing facility organized by the hotel. Overall the destination was too good and it was value for money and would like to recommend this hotel.

A home away from home; spacious rooms

Posted 6 Sep, 2014

We stayed here this summer and the experience we've had was great. It was like staying at home away from home. The owner was very warm and friendly, rooms were spacious and clean. Actually in every segment the stay here beats all the other hotel experiences. If I happen to ever visit again here, this is the hotel I would prefer to stay and highly recommended to all.

Well furnished home stay with delicious food

Posted 27 Jun, 2014

My hubby and I had been to this place on September 2013. Its a very comfortable duplex home stay well furnished with Tv, running hot water, four independent rooms connected with living room and dining area. Well maintained and the service was good provided by the owner Gowri she also stays in the home, prepares food to all the visitors. The food was very delicious though little costly but worthy enjoyed a lot with numerous sightseeing destinations among which Talacauvery is an awesome one lovely and beautiful place. We also had lots of fun with adventures games in Coorg like drafting, trekking, rope wire etc. We had taken many pics at each place Coorg. Its really an evergreen memory in our life had great time and lucky to see the best hilly place in South India.

Nice staff and food

Posted 19 Dec, 2011

Coorg is an awesome getaway from Bangalore. My husband and myself went to Coorg in the month of Dec 2011. We drove from Bangalore to Coorg in our car. The roads were not good in and around 3KM radius of the Madikeri, otherwise it was good. The home stay is located in the heart of the city Madikeri. It is very close to Raja Seat and the temple and market to buy spices. The care-taker Muthu, was very friendly and helped us schedule our itinerary very efficiently. With her help we bought spices at wholesale prices. We visited Dubbare, Abbi falls, Bagamandala, Talakaveri, Nalknad Palace, Iguthappa temple, Omkareshwara temple during our stay there.

Posted 18 Sep, 2010

Gowri Nivas is in midst of Madikeri town. But the home stay with its two cottages is so beautifully designed and maintained that you wont know that there isa town in the vicinity unless you step ut of their gates. The room we stayed in was in their main bungalow. It was victorian and spoke of the impeccable taste of the hosts - Mrs Daisy and Ms. Muthu. Both extremely warm and just lovely people to be associated with. Their home cooked jams and marmalades and pork curry and lamb curry and every other dish they made ....yumm the tatste is still lingering in my mouth. They have perfected the art of hospitality by being extremely warm and yet comepletely un-intrusive. Like I told them, I really felt i was leaving my home while coming out.

Feel Like Home at Gowri Nivas

Posted 6 Jun, 2013

If you want to experience a home like environment and treatment ,please do visit Gowri Nivas in Madikeri. The location of this home stay is close to most tourist spots around Madikeri. This homestay is located close to Raja Seat and the market is a a few minutes walk. The other plus point is the ambience of the home stay.It has a old time charm to it . Though this homestay is in the heart of the city it is quiet and cutoff from hustle bustle. The hosts are lovely and helpful people.The coorg delicacies is a welcome treat !! Go for it !!
