"Eye catching Appearance"

5.3/7
Posted 21 Jul

The location was wonderful. I booked the room directly. The appearance was antique and not eye catching. About the food it was delicious even fridge also available so it was useful for us. The room was clean and neat they have to fix more power point for charging phones. The reception staff was average service was really good they provide hot water and food without any delay. No lift facility was there even no need of that only ground floor was there. Also they providing wheelchair facility for the senior citizen. They provided room for drivers also I took my own vehicle and there was a parking facility. Overall it was a comfortable stay.

"Food service was very bad"

4.5/7
Posted 21 Jul

I visited this hotel in the month of May 2017 with my family. It was a vacation trip The location was good and the appearance of the hotel was nice. I booked it directly. The front office staff was good. The services were average. The food service was average because for breakfast they served bread I didn't expect that it was a complementary food. They should provide like idly and dosa as breakfast. The management of the hotel should improve a lot.

"Most enjoyable and pleasant"

7.0/7
Posted 21 Jul

We visited Chikmagalur in the month of May 2017 with my family on a vacation trip. I booked a double bedroom in Nature Craft Home Stay with a personal reference. The destination was excellent with the coffee plantation. There were big estates which were very appealing. The hotel location was splendid. It was surrounded by greenery. The market is about 7kms far from the location. It was very easy to reach the home stay. The appearance was attractive and beautiful with the interior and exterior looks. The front office was co-operative. The person who owns this stay was my old friend. We know each other for last 20 years. I gave him a call and booked a room. Rooms were very spacious with all the facilities. Everything was presented in the room. No issues were there. The room service was very caring and they were on-time and punctual. Foods were delicious. They make buffet lunch and dinner. It is not a hotel it is a home stay. The taste and quality of the food were the best. There were no fun activities in that stay. We traveled by own vehicle. There was parking space which was free of cost. The overall service was very good and excellent.

"Nice hotel with very nice service"

4.9/7
Posted 3 May

I visited this hotel in the month of March. It was a holiday trip with my wife. I have been there just to visit sightseeing in the destination. The destination was good and I liked mulyangiri place very much. The hotel location was nice and I liked coffee plantation nearby the hotel. Best way to reach the hotel was by cab. The appearance of the hotel was only good because rooms were very ordinary and it could be better. Reception area was nice and I had booked the room by online. Room provided by the hotel was not attractive and looking like ordinary. Service of the hotel was very nice and staff's were co-operative to customers. The food and drinks were very nice and I liked mutton biryani very much. Complimentary breakfast was included in my package and it was good. I needed outdoor activity in the hotel but it was not available there. The overall experience was good in the hotel. Best thing in the hotel was their interaction with customers and service.

"A fine option for relaxation"

5.6/7
Posted 28 Mar

The hotel was located in a lush green neighbourhood in the outskirts. I had done an online booking. The hotel staff's and service were professional. The food was good, I personally liked Biryani the most. The room was average, not up to the mark. It was not as clean as we had expected. I stayed with my family. A play area or games facility was missing, they should use some of the space for arranging that.

6.1/7
Posted 6 Sep, 2010

I have done several homestays at various destinations before, this was easily one of the best so far. Very clean restrooms, excellent food, and above all very warm and friendly hosts. I travelled with my mom, wife and daughter, and all of us have brought back very fond memories of this place. If one is looking for a place to relax, with plenty of greenery and serenity around, I would highly recommend this place. Food is a definite bonus, with very good options for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians.

6.6/7
Posted 29 Jun, 2011

\'Fantastic\' is the word to describe the experience at Nature craft.This was our first visit to a homestay, and we went there with my parents, and it felt as if we were visiting our old family friends. From the moment we reached till we left, we were really happy with all the arrangements made.They have neat rooms with clean bathrooms with hot water etc. and that made the stay very comfortable. The greenery around the homestay is absolutely relaxing, we were lucky to be there in great weather as well- I guess if its wonderful, end of April then it must great rest of the year too.The homestay has a really rustic & artistic touch to it.The Zahoor home is full of very interesting coffee wood sculptures & furniture items made by Ansar\'s father. Ansar, made it very easy by giving us directions to things to do in chikmaglur,as well as suggested another alternate & lovely route back home. They even worked out a plan to provide food for our driver at really reasonable rates, which made it very convenient for us.

"Going to Nature Craft was worth the time & money...."

6.4/7
Posted 16 Oct, 2010

Going to Nature Craft was worth the time & money. I and my family thoroughly enjoyed the stay. And Chikmagalur is one nice place to visit. If you want Mom\'s cooking away from home, this is the place to go. The host Ansar and his family are friendly, courteous and very dedicated. You\'d wish you had a house like theirs in the midst of nature. The rooms are good & neat with clean bathrooms. This is a nice place to relax during your weekend or for your trekking adventures. This was my first home stay and it was a wonderful experience. I\'m looking forward for another longer holiday there. Unlike a hotel, Ansar will personally help you with any problems you have and guide you during your stay to make your holiday the way you wanted. Thumbs Up!!

5.4/7
Posted 27 May, 2009

Great. Rare to get hosts as sweet as them. Ansar\'s mother - amazing cuisine she prepares with the able assistance of Ansar\'s wife (and may be Ansar In the Background!!). What was amazing was that even the veg dishes were out of the world. How could u manage this? I wish to ask that charming lady born and brought up at Karachi! ( I have even confessed to her that it will be impossible for a bad eater like me at home to get back and tell what all and how all I freaked out eating there). We felt so much at home that we were sad to leave them and come. All the eight of had the same feeling.
