We were repeatedly asking tea/coffee sugar pouch they were giving us immediately without hesitating. They used to bring the food which was hot and tasty on-time within 15-20 mins. Foods were delicious. It was a vegetarian hotel. They provide tasty and good quality of all vegetarian food. They don't have the same menu they arrange different food items day-by-day. Morning breakfast was complimentary and we had it in the restaurant. In the night for the dinner we took the food in the room itself. This was very impressive. Lift facility was there in that hotel. We don't know about any other activities in that hotel. We traveled by own vehicle (car). Parking facility was there and it was free. They even water washed the car they didn't charge but we gave Rs. 50-Rs. 100/- for our satisfaction for the cleaner boy. The overall service was impressive and very satisfactory. I suggest the hotel staff provide bright white bedsheets pillow covers and to spray the room fresheners in the front desk and in the rooms also.

1) I was at Shimoga on the 29th and 3oth Jan 2016 with my wife and stayed at the Hotel. We are senior citizens. We planned to visit Mettur and Hosahalli villages about 10 Kms from Shimoga. These villages have several families which use Sanketi dialect a mixture of Sanskrit. Kannada and Tamil as the language of daily usage. Situated on the banks of Tunga River the scenario in Mattur is idyllic. It is amid vast tracts of Areca plantations interspersed with Banana and Coconut. There is a Sanskrit Vidyalaya run by the villages without any external financial aid. There is a Siva temple at Mettur and Chennakesava temple at Hosahalli. The Vidyalaya conducts classes for outsiders too, a ten day programme on spoken Sanskrit to four year programme on Vedanta following the Gurukul tradition. Lodging and boarding arrangements are available. On the 30th, we visited Koodali where the Rivers Tunga and Bhadra meet. Ancient Narasimha Temple more than 1000 years old and a temple to Goddess Sharada managed by Sringeri Sarada Sansthan are a must visit. There is Karthikeya temple on the way from Shimoga. In another direction again about 10 Kms from Shimoga we visited Sakkare Bayalu where the Government of Karnataka has an Elephant sanctuary. Daily at 9. 30 A. M. The mahouts brings the Elephants for their bath in the river. It is a thrilling experience to see the procedure. The Elephants of all sizes are playful and liberally spray water on the visitors. Elephant rides are available. Reasonably priced. 2) The hotel has a neatly maintained vegetarian restaurant. The food is delicious and the spread copious. The service is personalised. The bearers were proud of the quality of service and spared no effort in serving us and ensuring our comfort. One Sri. A. Mandal stands out. 3) The room was neatly maintained and has a luxurious feel. Usual amenities like colour T. V, with a wide choice of channels and Coffee maker are available. The bathroom was spick and span. The bed was comfortable and the linen clean. The staff were prompt in handling our requests. 4) It is an experience we cherish and did not expect in a medium town like Shimoga. We wish we could spend a day or two more there. Our schedule did not permit it. It is a hotel we confidently recommend to others.
We visited Shimoga it was a personal holiday trip. I went there along with my family in the month of May 2017. We booked the room online from GoIbibo portal. There is parking facility and it is free of cost. The security guard is very friendly in his approach towards customer. The location was alright. The entrance is very near to travelers who come from Davangere and Chitradurga. The best way to reach hotel is by own vehicle. We came in our own vehicle and it was self-driven. The appearance is very good the front look of the hotel is very pleasing . . The front office were very courteous. They gave us welcome drink. They do not make us wait in booking room. They take immediate action. They give good service and place our luggage to our room. The service is the same when I came last time. There are no changes. They provide prompt service. They gave us water bottles and food on time without any delay. We booked master suite room was clean and tidy. Lightnings were normal. Rooms are spacious. They provided AC. Which was working well. Even bathrooms were clean. We had morning breakfast. It was exceptionally good. Very good taste and delicious. We took dinner also. It was normal nothing special. Breakfast was good especially idli and sambar. There was a buffet system. We took restaurant service. We will suggest other travelers to have breakfast here. There were no activities in the hotel. There are no special arrangements for kids like playing area and no food courts. No special arrangements for elders also. I will definitely suggest this hotel to other travelers. You get all facilities that three star hotel will provide. They treat whole family very well. Only issue is that it is near to construction area. When we go inside it is fine. I have nothing to suggest to hotelier as I feel that management has taken care of everything.
