KSTDC Mayura Gerusoppa Reviews
Spacious rooms, interiors are very good. View of Jog falls from room window was excellent. The view is good only for Sharavati Block AC Rooms. It has very limited staff and room service is almost null. There is only 1 restaurant run by which closes by 8. 30 PM and the food is also limited. After 8PM, all the street lights around the area were switc....Read More
This is the best place to experience Jog falls... Right in front of the falls. Huge rooms kept very clean with a view of Jog falls all the time. The only flip side is no room service and the in house restaurant having very few options.
Stayed in this hotel in Sharavati block on 25th June. Pros: Hotel is right next to Jog Falls and we could see the falls right from the room. Very good sight in morning. Room is really big. Cafetaria was OK (wash rooms are not clean), but food was tasty. Parking space is available in hotel but you need to pay the Jog falls entry ticke....Read More
The Hotel is beautifully located right in front of the Jog Falls. Had a nice view from our room in the Sharavathi Block. There was a small stream of water falling down when we reached the place as it is a dry season. However due to some reason the water from the reservoir was released to the Falls, as a result we could enjoy the sight of Jog Falls....Read More
I visited Mayura Geruthapa Hotel. The location of the hotel is excellent and easy to locate. Appearance of the hotel is good. Hotel staff provides good service. Hotel room provided to me was good and neat but there was water problem in the bathroom. Food is provided by the hotel but only Non-Veg. There were activities provided but I did not use. I....Read More
KSTDC Mayura Gerusoppa, entered with double mind as it is maintained by Government and to my surprise the rooms were very clean and very big. We booked 2 AC rooms at this hotel, they have some activities which we did not use much. Most of the rooms have Jog falls view, but this time of the year there is nothing much. 3 Star hotel facilities for hal....Read More
KSTDC Mayura Gerusoppa has two blocks : Tunga and Sharavati. All the Sharavathi block rooms (AC as well as non AC) have an awesome view of the falls. Since I had visited during off-season very few rooms were booked and so room service was stopped. Please note that the canteen is bit away from Sharavathi block. Also no orders are entertained after 8....Read More
Had booked in Sharavathi block A/c room. Big and spacious room. You can view the falls right from the room. The viewing window is very big and you can literally jump out of the window and walk to the viewing area of the falls. It is definitely value for money. The only drawback is the restaurant is not near to the rooms. You need to walk till the e....Read More
Had a terrible experience as they allocated a room 110 in Sharavati Block, which was right next to Jog falls public toilet. Had to literally fight and get refund by scolding the manager. When curtains were opened, we could see only the toilet. Not worth the money they charge. Also hotel entry and exit were blocked by the Jog falls tourists. Reminde....Read More
We had visited Jog Falls in July 2015 during monsoon season with family and stayed for overnight. Room in Sharavathi Block is good with wonderful view of falls from the window! Room was comfortable and beds were good. Hot water facilities is for 24 hours. Staff were helpful. Walk out of room any time to have a good view of falls. Evening was the b....Read More

KSTDC Mayura Gerusoppa has two blocks : Tunga and Sharavati. All the Sharavathi block rooms (AC as well as non AC) have an awesome view of the falls. Since I had visited during off-season very few rooms were booked and so room service was stopped. Please note that the canteen is bit away from Sharavathi block. Also no orders are entertained after 8 pm, so please plan your travel accordingly. Rooms are HUGE and really very well maintained.
Our visit was not planned, since whatever we were planning, it was not getting materialized due to one or the other reason. Within short period that we were left with, the nearest railway station was showing TALGUPPA, however no trains from Mumbai could be found. Even for another station SHIMOGA(SAGAR) no connection from Mumbai was availableUltimately, we went via BIRUR station and reached in the evening. Luckily the taxi driver was good and said that Mayura Gerusoppa is the best place to stay there and although we would be reaching there late, they will keep the dinner(which is basically south Indian type). True to his words, we were welcomed by the staff who seemed to be in a hurry to go home after duty. Food was good. Room was old fashioned, however served the purpose, considering the rates. They informed that this is going to be rennovated shortly. Next day as soon as we went out, there was beautiful sight of the Jog falls jusst in front of the hotel. The location of Mayara Gerusoppa is very beatiful and at the heart of the place. All other resorts are located far away(near Talguppa or Sagar). At Mayura, who can really enjoy nature and go walking to the nearby spots. The restaurant was maintained OK , not very posh, but tasty food. Hygiene was Ok, but could have been maintained still better. Room cleaning staff was not sent, when we had gone out, which was also pointed out. Professionalism was lacking, but simplicity was there and luckily business arrogance found in many a five star staff was absent. Room service was not there, but the restaurant is just by the side and you can take that much trouble. Light and Sound show in the backyard lawns of the hotel in evening was good. On afterthought, we could have gone first to Dharwad first by train and from there, by bus route to gerusoppa, instead of Birur (at least 8 to 10 hours travel could have been saved).
This is one of the best places to stay in jog falls. You can see the waterfalls from the room window itself. Only problem is that a restaurant is not attached, we need to walk a few places to decent food.
KSTDC Mayura Gerusoppa, entered with double mind as it is maintained by Government and to my surprise the rooms were very clean and very big. We booked 2 AC rooms at this hotel, they have some activities which we did not use much. Most of the rooms have Jog falls view, but this time of the year there is nothing much. 3 Star hotel facilities for half the price.
We booked a Room in Hotel Mayura and stayed in Sharavathi Block. It is the only worthwhile place to stay in Jog Falls area. The other options is to stay in Shimoga - Royal Orchid and Jewel rock Hotel. 2 Hours drive from Shimoga - roads in Good shape ( Surprise! ) except for a very short stretch after Sagara. Hotel Mayura - Sharavathi Block rooms are very spacious. Clean. A/c leaks though. The best part is it offers a fantastic view of the falls from the room itself. Do not expect any room service. There are just 3 people who double up and a receptionist, Room cleaning and supervision, billing and check out and finally in the evening open the kitchen and cook food for the visitors! Severely understaffed. Food in Jog Falls area is a bit of a lottery. There is only one restaurant, it is not visually appealing at all, pooor painted, etc. But good for things like Dosa, Idli, lunch ( Veg thali meals ). Dinner options close every early. In our case all food was \"Done\" by 7 p.m. because of the extra rush! Fortunately there is another shopping complex nearby equally badly maintained that offer Maggie, Omlette, Colored Rice, etc. We got one shop verndor to make customized Maggie and ensured that they use the water from our Bisleri bottle for the cooking purpose! Now about the Jog Falls itself. Try to get to the falls during the morning hours. It is reasonably quiet and gives you a good feel good factor. By noon and evening the crowd is unruly and quite a sizeable percentage of them visibly drunk / howling / etc ( even though there are no bars in the immediate vicinity ). The flight of stairs lead you down to the base of the falls. Easily 1000 plus steps - gets steeper as you go down. Coming up is quite an effort! Good Adventure - it was raining as we came up. Just adds to the fun! Remember to take a view of the falls from the other side as well. It is worth! The toilet complex is fortunately clean. Overall worth the time and effort if there is good water flowing at Sharavathi.
