6.8/7
Posted 21 Jul, 2017

On my holiday trip I visited Shimoga with my family in May 2017. I reserved my stay through online. The location of the hotel was excellent as it was having a good scenic view with good plantations. Exactly it was not a hotel it was a holiday home. We reached the hotel by own vehicle. Parking was very spacious 50 cars can be parked at a time. The overall appearance of the hotel was excellent. The front desk of the hotel was excellent actually they were the family they themselves were the reception the themselves were the hospitality viewers. They hired chefs from outside. The overall service in the hotel was excellent. The villa was very clean and well maintained bedding blankets good atmosphere rejuvenate from the tension life peaceful place. The food in the hotel was very tasty they prepared some regional foods we tasted it was really delicious whatever we like if we will share with them if it was possible they will prepare. They were very comfortable with the guests. There was a tennis court sliders water pool was under process.

The hotel navigation was easy through google map

6.6/7
Posted 21 Jul, 2017

On my Holiday trip I visited Shimoga. I went there along with my family in the month of May 2017. I booked it directly. The Front Office staff were helpful. They have guided us to reach the location. The check in and the check out was on time. The location was conveniently located. The heritage sightseeings were there in the proximity of 5 km travel distance. We have navigated this hotel through the Google map. The appearance of the hotel was an old decoration. I went there on my own vehicle. There was a parking area with free of cost. The room was Heritage and it was kept clean. The room service was on time. We have ordered for the local pizza we had the veg as well as the non-veg food in this hotel. Since it was only 1-floor building the lift was not required there. I would like to suggest to the other travelers: Hence there was no Mobile signal you have to navigate this hotel through Google map.

Everything was perfect

6.8/7
Posted 21 Jul, 2017

I visited Shimoga with my family on a holiday trip in the month of April 2017. I directly booked a two double bedroom in this hotel when we reached there. The hotel location was excellent. It was in a calm and pleasant place. There are few sightseeing places nearby. It was convenient to reach the location. We traveled by own vehicle. Parking facility was there and it was free. The appearance was very attractive with the interior and exterior looks. It was very beautiful. It was maintained very well. There was a lot of greenery around. The front desk was very good in responding to us. The booking was done in a proper manner. It was a simple process. There was a separate room for the drivers. Rooms were very comfortable. It was like an old house and the atmosphere was very good. Cleanliness was the first rate. Everything was perfect and all the amenities were presented. The room service was good and on-time. Foods were very delicious. We took vegetarian food items. There was no service because it was a home stay we have to go and have our food. There were few indoor and outdoor games in that hotel. It was good to take part in it. No lift facility available. Kids play area was provided. The overall service was excellent and fulfilling.

Excellent place to relax mind and body

4.3/5
Posted 4 Mar, 2016

Went there with family and stayed 2 nights over the weekend. Basically, we were looking for a break from monotonous city life and repetitive, stressful work. My wife, two teen aged kids and my elderly parents constituted our group. We set off from Bangalore on a Thursday afternoon around 4. 15 pm and reached Shimoga city by car around 10:30 pm after a halt on the way for dinner, after Arsikere. Stayed overnight at Shimoga before setting off for Kolavara heritage next day to reach there around noon. En route, visited the Sakrebyle elephant camp The homestay is part of a large Malnad family mansion, now well restored and maintained on a 35 acre plantation containing mainly arecanut trees, pepper, coffee and some cardamom. It's about 18 kms from Thirthahalli town and if it were not for precise driving instructions, it's easy to miss the place and lose your way. Signs leading to the place are few and inconspicuous. But once there, you are treated and welcomed more as part of family than a guest. Rooms are spacious, neat and scrupulously clean. The Bath and toilets are modern and there is plenty of hot water available. Bed linen clean and beds large and comfy. No A/c and no WiFi if you want this and you need to get your own Bath towels and Bath toiletries. Our rooms had TV with DTH and frankly, we didn't watch TV here as much as we watch at home. The main house on the property is where the owners stay and the rooms are housed in outhouses that once were storehouses and granaries, I am told. The owners arrange for a bonfire outside your room every evening and we were invited to taste some homemade liqueur/wine, which we didn't partake in being teetotalers Mr. Narayan Murthy the owner, is always making rounds to see that guests are comfortable and not left wanting in any way. His son, Nischal, daughter-in -law Mrs Vatsalya and wife Mrs Murthy all chip in and ably support to maintain the place. Paschal will go out of his way to guide you to see nearby places and gave us tips on places to visit in the vicinity. There's Kuppali village, the home place of Kuvempu. Famed Kannada poet and writer, nearby: besides, there's the river Tunga which flows and you can visit safe area for a dip, there are hilltops for magnificent sunset/sunrise views, you can go on treks( Paschal will help arrange a guide), see local temples and if you like, can play TT or chess or carrom on the equipment available at the homestay. There were also three good bicycles around for use of guests. Excellent place for bird watching and maybe fishing in the river if you carry your equipment for that. Nice place to simply sit and read a book or engage in conversation with friends around the bonfire in the evenings Meals provided include breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can have extra snacks provided for with prior notice given. Meals are cooked with attention to guest's likes/dislikes and were delicious. Authentic Malnad cuisine. Veg and non veg, we had excellent chicken and fried local fish. The hospitality is overwhelming and it's hard not to overeat! The main cook is one Mr. Devaiah who is mostly self taught, but is now a masterchef in local cuisine Overall, a place to go with family and close friends. A place to unwind, escape from city madness and grind. It will give you a perspective of life in the countryside. Not for you if you can't do without a disclaiming pool/ gym or spa. And, may get bored if you stay more than 2 days. Please carry BSNL sim cards when you go, no other Mobile sim signals accessible here. Plenty of parking place and drivers / maids accompanying are provided for with same meals and have separate restrooms. Ideal place to go and stay if you miss and feel nostalgic about you own hometown/roots.

Kolavara, the cool homestay

3.7/5
Posted 14 Jun, 2016

Nestled in the heart of malnad, had a wonderful weekend at kolavara, the heritage homestay. Added advantage was the proximity of the great kannada poet kuvempu's birthplace kuppalli where we spent half a day enjoying the literary feast and enjoying the sunset at kavishaila with a breathtaking view of the western ghats. If you have affinity to divine, can visit sringeri, the temple town nearby and get blessed at the famous sharada temple, with children enjoying feeds to swarm of fishes at river tunga. Also can spend some time nearby at the serene sirimane falls. The homestay itself is a simple yet elegant place in a hilly area with a nice well maintained garden and small ponds with water lillies and a mix of colourful flowers. Lots of plantation with varieties including coffee plant and spices, with greenery everywhere. We were made to feel at home by the hospitality and taken care of with a personal touch. The rooms comfortably accommodate two people, however with children may require a larger one which is also available. The food was usually a buffet serving the coastal and malnad culinary delicacies, of course not the usual stuff of restaurants. What excited us was the tasting of variety of home made wines. The scope for activities included table tennis, carrom and chess and also the traditional 'chinna mane' to be played on a lazy rainy day in the heavy monsoon of malnad. The silent atmosphere is ideal for avid book reader and inspiring for creative person. Cycling and trekking in the hilly areas are also other options of physical activity for Eco conscious people. Overall it was a satisfying experience and a weekend to be remembered and cherished for long and definitely to be shared and recommended.

The Home-stay Is Worth For Money

4.2/5
Posted 6 Sep, 2017

On my family holiday trip I went to the Shimoga in the month of June 2017. I booked my stay through over a call. I booked Non-AC room. That was a home stay so whatever they had prepared we have to eat. They had provided local food and that was good. We went the hotel by Cab. There was a travel desk in the hotel. There was no special arrangement for the kids. The travelers can go to relax. The location of the hotel was out of the city to relax. The place was very peaceful and silent. The travelers can't reach easily. That was in between the forest. The exterior of the hotel was very beautiful. The reception staff received and behaved very well. The food service was provided on time. Whatever I ordered that was provided us.
