"Good Hotel and Pleasant Environment"

5.3/7
Posted 15 days ago

My stay in the Porcupine Castle when I had been to Coorg during the month of December 2016. It was my holiday trip with family. I would rate the destination as average. I would rate the location as very good transportation is easy from this place. The appearance of the hotel was very good as it is very hygienic. The staff at the reception was good as they are polite and responsive. I booked my room through online. The services which were provided in the hotel were very good because of quick response and politeness. Rooms which we stayed in were very good because of available facilities. I would rate food as average.

"Garden is well maintained but poor room service "

4.2/7
Posted 4 months ago

Good about this hotel is Garden well maintained and food in buffet is bit tasty. Very poor room service, NOT at all Value for money, We paid INR 5, 500/night, stayed 3 days totally disappointed. Even they don't care to change Bath towels etc in the room. The worst room service I ever experienced. I work in Dubai, the food price is exuberant in Porcupine even it exceeds a good restaurant food price in Dubai.

"Nice and beautiful place !!"

5.6/7
Posted 5 months ago

Very nice place to stay away from city loved ittt Hospitality was excellent. Felt at home. Could not have a better holiday experience. Location and landscape was beautiful. Cultural activities was fun. Food was very tasty and staff was concerned about our likings. We were a group of 20 guests including kids for 2 nights/ 3days. The property is great in a high altitude compared to other resorts in Coorg. The highlight is the infinity pool facing the cliff with breathtaking view of the forest. The pool is well maintained as well The rooms are nice seems to be new but fairly decent with all amenities as needed especially compared for the price we paid. We occupied duplex room which means 2 private rooms and one shared bathroom, this was pretty neat and well maintained.

6.3/7
Posted 6 months ago

My stay to this hotel was in the month of October 2016. The destination and location of the hotel was good. The appearance of the hotel was good in look internally and externally. There was no delay in check-in and checkout. The staff members were helpful and friendly in service. The room allotted to me was good and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition. I did not eat food at this hotel. There were no activities happening in this hotel. I will recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

"A beautiful resort for a weekend getaway"

6.6/7
Posted 2 years ago

We were planning to visit Coorg since June and were checking out our options for stay. Finally we contacted M/S Princy Holidays Bangalore for options and decided to choose Procupine Castle Resort, Polibetta which is about 40 km from Madikeri. The idea was to have a relaxed stay and go for sightseeing. We left Bangalore at 6.30 am by car for the resort but on the way decided to visit Ranganathaswamy temple at Srirangapatana and Iruppu falls. We reached the resort around 4 pm. We were really happy when we reached the resort and saw the beautiful view surrounding the place. Since we had planned to stay for two nights we decided to stay in the tree house for the night and to stay in mountain view room, the next day. The stay in tree house was a unique experience and the view through the window was awesome. The cool weather, lush green surroundings and chirping of birds made the long drive worthwhile. The tree house had all amenities with cane furniture making it look ethnic. Clean bed, a spacious bathroom with hot shower, the comfort of coffee maker made our stay comfortable. The next day we moved into the mountain view room which was more spacious and comfortable sit out where from we could enjoy the view of mountains and the valley. The resort is on top of a 300 acre plantation and the location is calm, serene and tranquil. We found this perfect getaway from pollution and free from noises of city. The staff were very friendly, specially Mr. Sebastian who helped us to check-in and Mr. Lohit who helped us to walk around the resort facility. The food quality was very good and service excellent. The resort has a swimming pool and a children play area where trampoline, swing etc. are there to keep the children happy. The resort does not have a bar which is the only negative thing for me to say. Porcupine castle is ideal for a leisure holiday and I have no hesitation in suggesting choosing this place instead of Madikeri though it involves covering little more distance for sightseeing.

"Very courteous staff "

6.0/7
Posted 6 years ago

I am writing this review of ?The Porcupine Castle resort? at Coorg after our 4 days (6th to 9th Sep 2011) stay in his resort. After being in the crowded city of Bangalore, we wanted to take a break from the usual routine and be in a place that was peaceful, relaxing and a god place for the entire family. Our travel agent booked us at the Porcupine castle resort. We had visited their site and we found it to be good and hence decided to go with our travel agent?s choice. From the minute we reached this resort, we felt we were in a completely different world. The resort is quite new (has been functioning only for the last 2 years) and believe me this place is breathtaking. We were welcomed by very friendly people from the resort. The booking was done perfectly and the room was ready when we landed there. We really loved the location of this resort at Pollibetta. Absolutely silent and you see greenery all around. The rooms are very neat and the food was awesome. I would say this is a fantastic place for the entire family, for couples and also for a group of friends. The resort is well located and most of the important places in Coorg are easily accessible by road from this resort. The biggest plus point are the people who maintain this resort. Starting from their Director (Brijesh), the resort managers (Vivin and Jobish) and all the staff of this resort are so friendly and make you feel so comfortable. They have stuff for the kids as well like some indoor games and the camp fire during late evening was too good. One thing I would advise all tourists who go to this resort is to take the planation tour. Brijesh (the Director of this resort) took us in his jeep and this 120 minute ride was just out of the world. This gentleman has so much of information and knowledge about the coffee plantation that you really pray that this ride should not end soon. We enjoyed every second of this 120 minute tour. Hats off to Brijesh and his team for providing us such a wonderful holiday. We promised them that we will come back soon and my children have already started planning for their next trip to the same resort. Pack your bags and go to the Porcupine Castle.

"I would visit again because of customer service"

5.9/7
Posted 4 years ago

My husband & I visited this place to have our personal time :) When we went, climate was cold & I wouldn't have gone to pool at all. However, pool was under renovation/repair. Its OK with me.. Still pool location was superb!!! We felt that, it was very clam place & relaxing place. The best part of this hotel is customer service. We were amazed by the service. They are so so good that, they could accommodate our request. If you want some things to be customise, they will just manage. Our first breakfast had only 2 items. However, it was promised more. When we just mentioned to the booking people, they really responded in very nice way & got good items for next day. They came back to us ask for what we need & prepare accordingly. Just mind blowing people they are. If you as k that, given a chance, Will I really visit the place again. I think Yes because of there service towards customer Only few things can be improved - For vegetarians, we could not get tandoor roti & few items specified in the menu. I am not sure why. But yes... We were bit disappointed after 1 or 2 days. Because we could hardly choose from menu. I would not forget to mention this - Superb, Amazing starters in the lunch & dinner. All the items were very good & tasty. Only the thing is less items to order. I can not order same things for both lunch & dinner.
