Peaceful location

5.3/7
Posted 7 Jun, 2017

I visited Shimoga it was a Personal trip. I went there along with my family in the month of May 2017. I booked it directly. The location of the hotel was good in connectivity as it was on the high way. It was just a 1 and a half km far away from the main town. The appearance of the hotel was a Home stay and the building was like a Bungalow. The river views were really good and there was no much of water. There was a kid playing area. There was no front office in this hotel. The service of the hotel was good enough. The room was spacious and it was comfortable. We have booked the AC room and the blankets were not sufficient for us. There were a lot of mosquitoes as it was near to the river. We have to inform them in advance for the food preparation. They would prepare the food. Overall the service was good. The kids would enjoy the place and they could play as situated in the middle of the farm.

Awesome Resort But Improve Hospitality

4.4/7
Posted 5 Jun, 2017

We went to the Shimoga in the month of May 2017. That was a family holiday trip. I booked my stay by direct booking. They had provided service in the night time properly but in the morning they were talking with us arrogantly. The owner was very cooperative and helpful but the service staff was worst. That was not traffic area. that was peaceful and the private place. There was a water lake near the resort. That was very good place to relax. They should ask the customer whatever they need before only and they should inform about all the terms and conditions. They should inform about food timings. They had given Coffee when we reached there. I didnt get breakfast and dinner in the hotel. The leddies staff was not good. No other problems in the resort but they should provide food properly. The exterior and interior were very attractive. There was a sitting arrangement in the lawn. The river view was very good. The resort was simple and good. They should provide card swiper. We went there for relaxation so they should cooperate us properly. The bath tub was good. the interior decoration lighting curtains were very good. They should educate the staff. They should inform about the breakfast timings. The car parking was very good. The resort was worth for money. I will always stay here if they will do some changes. I will refer this hotel to others. the food was good quality and tasty. The Idly sambar was good. They had provided food in the night from outside.

No Hospitality

4.3/7
Posted 5 Jun, 2017

I visited Shimoga in the month of May 2017. That was a personal trip for a marriage function. I booked my stay through online. That was the farm stay so we contacted directly to the owner and booked the room. The separate reception was not available. We went there for a marriage purpose. The location was easy to reach. The exterior and interior were average. They should arrange reception area to solve the customers problem. If we want something then no one person was available there. The owner has told so many restrictions initially. They were not good to talk. In the night time no one was there. We booked one six-bed room. That was big and only one AC was available so that was not useful. The second room had ten-bed and have only one AC but not working. We didnt have food there. They had not provided complimentary food. The restaurants were not available. That was 4-5 km away from there. If travelers have own vehicle then they can go. The hotelier will bring but they will take extra charges for that. The charges were more than the room quality. We reached there by own vehicle. There was an enough space for parking. There was no separate room for the driver.

Excellent To Stay With Family

3.6/7
Posted 13 May, 2017

On my personal trip for marriage function I went to the Shimoga in the month of April 2017. I booked my stay through online. The Shimoga was my native place so obviously I liked it. That was improving like a Bangalore. The hotel was located the front of Narayana Netralaya. The place was easy to reach. We can stay with family comfortably. The hotel was secured with a big compound. The interior was better than the exterior of the hotel. The interior was not good by look but it was spacious. The reception staff was good to behave. They maintained reception area very well. There indoor trees and garden in the reception area. The room was too spacious. Near about 8 members can stay comfortably. That was an AC room. The room was neat and clean. That was a combo room. We didnt have food in the hotel because we went for a function. If we will go to stay with family then it is good to enjoy the stay. No need of improvements.

Happy and pleasant trip with friends

5.5/7
Posted 13 Apr, 2017

I had a trip with friends in December. The destination was good. Check in and checkout time was convenient and quick. There was complimentary food in the hotel. There was Wi-Fi facility which was free of cost. The hotel was expensive compared to its peers. The hotel front office staff's were very good and prompt in their service. Check in and checkout was also very fast. There were indoor or outdoor activities which was satisfactory. I would rate my room excellent as all the amenities were working properly and it was very clean & spacious. The overall experience with this hotel was good.

Good place to relax and enjoy nature

6.9/7
Posted 15 Jul, 2016

A good place to relax and enjoy nature. Each and every person in the Resort are very friendly and very kind. Service offered is fantastic and Food is just too good and I never felt away from home. The host family was very caring and humble people and they took care of us like a family. Afternoon lunch is not provided so that arrangements needs to be taken care. Few minutes travel away from the resort is a elephant camp (Sakrebailu camp)is a must visit place to see and experience true nature and the elephant camp is too good. You need to travel and reach there by 8 a. M and its wonderful. Also travelers can see the Gajanur dam on the way back to resort from Elephant camp. If interested in bird watching there is a place and before going just enquire about in when the birds can be spotted (season). Also in few distance you have the Tiger and Lion safari and it's not very great but can visit to show children few animals.
