Magnolia Resort Reviews (15)
Located in a small town called Virajpet close to Coorg, this entire property is about 73 acres. The reception is a square with the back that opens up to the glorious western ghats behind it. Very close to the reception is the Peppervine restaurant and bar. The bar is an open air one and a few steps from it takes you to the back entrance of the restaurant. Between these 2, on the side is the space for bonfire. The resort provides 1 complimentary bonfire during the stay. Drinks and Bonfire in the chilly evenings of Coorg is just so awesome. Currently the bar licensed to sell, but you're welcome to get your own drinks. But they provide an array of finger food incl some delicious options for veggies too incl cheese fried broccoli (must try), chilli paneer, onion pakoda etc. Roads are there to lead you from the reception to the restaurant to the rooms and all other places within the resort. The best way is walking or bicycling (resort provides it on request)! Within the property are also 2 lakes - Emerald and Turquoise. Check-out the lakes in dawn and dusk for birding. There are 2 types of rooms, the 1000 sq ft villas (x6) and 900 sq ft cottages (x12).
It was a relaxing trip with my family. The hotel was conveniently located. I didn’t face any difficulty to reach the hotel. The hotel was near to the bus stand. The surrounding was very nice. The interior and exterior were okay. There was no lift facility in the hotel. The pillows, bed sheets and blankets were in clean condition. It was an AC room. The amenities like AC, TV and geyser were working properly. There was no view form the room. I had food from outside. The sightseeing trip was organized by the hotel. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.
This place is out of town and very calm and beautiful place. It has all the facilities and cottage was very excellent and maintained well. It gives a feeling of woods and place were free from pollution and technology which made our weekend good. But food should be improved little bit.
Overall, I had a good experience in this hotel. I was there for 2 nights. I visited there with my family. I reached there comfortably without any problem. I travelled there by my own car. Look wise, it was good and of an old style. Staff nature was good in that hotel. They were quick in their services. No delay in check in and check out time. Room was good. It was having traditional interiors. It was spacious, neat and clean. No view was available from there. Room maintenance was good there. They used to clean the room daily. Food quality was good. I took regular food there. I used room service there for food. Activities were there but I did not avail them. I did not go for any outing. Sanitation needs to be modernized. I did not recommend it to others.
In my view hotel was located conveniently. There was no delay in check in and check out facility. Behavior of the staff was friendly. Rooms were neat and clean. Any scenic view was not available from the room window. I took my food from outside. Nothing was available in activities. Inner and outer look of the hotel was so-so. Hotel was value for money and recommendable for others.
Its a beautiful resort in Virajpet. One have to book through internet before travelling here. They provide good services, room is also very clean, a view of coffee plantation from this hotel is superb. The climate is also cool and calm. They provide an excellent Coorg breakfast.
