Amenities were functioning properly

Posted 31 May, 2016

The experience was good in the hotel. I went there with my family. The hotel was located conveniently. The appearance of the hotel was fine. The staffs were very helpful in the hotel.

Homely stay & excellent service

Posted 22 Mar, 2016

Very cool place to stay and homely stay. Service was excellent, quick response, security was also good. Indoor games was not upto the mark. Adventure games should be introduced, separate kitchen for veg would be better.

Very good services & great homely food

Posted 6 Mar, 2016

We visited Chikmagalur for the first time to spend a relaxed weekend & do some sightseeing. Choose to stay at The Spectrum after going through the HolidayIQ reviews. We stayed for 1 night & 2 days at the place. Should say it looked more like a small Hotel than that of a typical home stay. Located inside a small coffee plantation, this place is refreshingly green & secluded from the main road. The room was very clean & more welcoming. Television with cable option available. The bathroom too was neat & clean. However toiletry kit was not provided. Hence people planning to stay there should carry everything themselves. Wi-fi is available in the dining area. Only BSNL works there but a common landline phone available there to make any urgent calls. The manager Mr. Nanjappa was very friendly & helpful. Not just him, the other staff too were very courteous. They even guided us in taking sightseeing trips. The best thing about the place is their Food. Very homely & tasting good. After 7 pm they arrange for bonfire/music along with some snacks & beverages to munch on. Though there are a lot of good things about his place, there are also some points where they need to improve like the windows in all the rooms are facing the common corridor & the drapes are not sufficient to fill in, which was a hindrance to privacy plus we were unable to keep the windows open. Also in the night there was 3-4 times power cut for over 10-15 mins where they did not provide backup supply, which ruined our sleep. Even the other guests staying there were complaining about it in morning. If they take care of these issues, they sure have the potential to become one of the best homestays in the neighbourhood. Will suggest this place for budget travellers & also people who go in groups. We too will prefer to go back to this place if we were a part of larger group.

Spectrum homestay

Posted 6 Nov, 2015

Our trip to Chikmagalur was a short one. We stayed only one night. The homestay is located inside a coffee plantation. The staff were courteous to suggest us the places to visit. They also arranged for a cab to visit Mullayanagiri Peak. The rooms and food was good. Overall it was a good trip. Will choose Spectrum once again to enjoy the beauty of Chikmagalur at a leisure pace.

Posted 22 Jan, 2012

It was a very good Experience which I have to express, I had given a gift to my friend for their Honeymoon it was A 2 night stay at The Spectrum Homestay Chikmagalur, they have travelled for almost 16hours from Villupuram to chikmagalur they both were litterly scolding me while coming in the bus why i had given a very long tiring journey. Before they reach the Bus stand a Red Maruthi Swift was at the bustand to welcome them and to take them to the Home stay, It was around 23:00hrs the staffs were welcoming us with smile and the couples went to room, As soon as they open the door they found a surprice that The bed was decorated with Rose petals in heart shape and also from the entrance door to the bed again it was decorated with Candles like a path way in either sides. As soon as they saw they forget about their journey and they both were started taking photographs, and we three of us went to our room, It was fully furnished room with Red Theme all over, The room was very nicely maintained and the bathroom fittings were all excellent Colour TV with Tata Sky Facility with minibar Snacks also available. after freshen up we went to have our Dinner starts with starter main course and Dessert all the dishes were mouth watering dishes and staff who served us dinner at mid night 12 o clock was very kind and charming, Excellent food and great service from the staff, then the next day we had our Breakfast and we all went to Mullaingiri and a Private falls which was a breath taking experence for the couples, it was so cold and fully mist covered all over the place. The whole stay was a suprise for them in Excellent Destination like chikmagalur - we all enjoyed our stay over there it was an unforgettable moment in my life - Thanks a lot for The Spectrum Team and will like to visit again.

Perfect hotel to stay with family

Posted 23 Feb, 2015

The first thing every traveller would look out for is convenience at any destination. Everything made easy. If you are looking for it, its gotta be Spectrum. Excellent service by staff, very cordial hospitality by the care taker aunty (owner's mother). Brilliant lip smacking food spread. It was so well taken care of that even if we had to leave for the daily trip before the breakfast time they ensured to pack it up for us before we could asked for it and not only did they packed breakfast but also lunch. We were apprehensive about the quality of food as we had our 2 year old kid was with us but surprisingly we didn't have to think about it after we saw the quality, taste and service. Perfect for a family and elders would sure commend for what they have to offer. Apart from this, its surroundings within the coffee estate was picturesque. Felt like own home and land walking around it. Dining area outdoor was fantastically designed with simplicity bound to spread natural aura around. Touched up with bonfire and music in the night for a dance jam with some hot snacks and filter coffee. It was surely an icing on the cake. Rooms were unbelievably clean, spacious, cosy and well-maintained everyday. Last but not the least, the location was quite well-placed convenient to every sightseeing place. They also have managed to arrange a car for daily trips which was reasonably priced for the rent compared to other tour providers. Thanks to the management as they have whole heartedly gave us a discount since it was our first visit to the hotel and also Chikmagalur.

Homestay is in between the coffee estate.

Posted 19 Nov, 2013

We 14 members stayed in Spectrum from October 18th to October 20th. Our stay was just awesome and one should not give a second thought about this. I have listed some of my feedback for the others benefit. 1. Home stay is in between the coffee estate. Very pleasant stay. Easy access to all the tourist places. They make our stay more memorable. 2. Excellent & unlimited food with wonderful taste. Believe me we ate double. 3. Very kind and polite owner (Manjunath) for him guest's satisfaction is more than money. 4. Nice staff who always there to serve best and they never say NO for anything we ask. 5. Spacious rooms with good ambience and very clean. 6. Only place where we get more than what promised and whatever we see in their website. 7. Place where we get more than our expectation. 8. They won't compromise the service & facility for money. 9. Easy booking process and they provide all the information of home stay without hiding anything. 10. On completion of stay, we feel like the money we paid them is less for the kind of service they provided. Thanks to Manjunath, Jayaprada & their staff for making our stay most memorable.

Food is awesome

Posted 22 Jan, 2012

The Spectrum is one of the best places I have stayed in. Food is awesome. It s a home away from home in the midst of the lush green serenity. I would recommend The Spectrum anytime as most wonderful places to stay in Chikmaglur.

Excellent hotel with many facilities and great atmosphere

Posted 5 Feb, 2015

The overall experience in this hotel was good and I stayed for three days. I did not face any difficult to reach the hotel, as it was close by. The staff in the hotel were good and helpful in service. I visited this hotel in holiday and I enjoyed with it. The hotel tariff was reasonable. The hotel location was good and beautiful nature surrounded with it. I like the hospitality of the hotel most. There was bus stand, stationary shops nearby the hotel. The entire team and management were great. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The room was spacious, neat and well maintained with fine condition pillows, towel etc All the amenities were good and there was a garden and mountain view from the room. There was no problem in water supply. The food in the hotel was good and the quality was superb with many varieties in both veg and non-veg. The price of food was reasonable. There were some activities, swimming pool and sightseeing trip organized by the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed with it. Finally, the hotel is value for money and I will recommend this hotel to others. I have no suggestion for any kind of improvement towards this hotel.
