Victorian Verandaz Reviews
I had booked the room by online. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The hotel was located in the centre of the city.
We have booked for one day stay and we felt it better that we booked only for one day as there is no activity and pool/water front. Hotel room are pretty old, but well maintained. They have carrom board, but can't play as it's broken. Food is good. But opinions are less. Owner is rude and moody if you have booked only for one day. He is bored of showing as same estate again and again which we can't make it out from his words, so he doesn't show much enthusiasm. Water fall is deep inside estate and children's can't play or have fun time with as they use to have in pools in other resorts. Overall it's not worth of money.
Victorian Verandaz is one of the best homestays in Coorg. This property is located at the edge of a large jungle and coffee estates. The food is good. The hosts are good in hospitality. It's a nice place to spend 2 days away from city chaos. Excellent property.
It was convenient to locate the hotel and it was close to the city. The interior and exterior of the hotel was nice. The behaviour of the staff in the hotel was good and they were helpful, and there was no delay in check in and checkout. The room allotted to me was maintained clean with basic amenities, working properly. The food served in the hotel was good in quality and in taste, and the price was reasonable. There were no activities in the hotel. Overall, I was satisfied with the stay and it was value for money. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.
It was closer to city. The appearance was good. Good & helpful staff services. There was WiFi, parking facility. The rooms were old but was spacious along the basic amenities but there was no view. The food was fine and there was no hassles in check-in and check-out but there was no activities at the hotel
Location was good and it was conveniently located. The staffs were good and fast to reply. Interior and exterior appearance was normal actually it was not a hotel and it was big estate. The room provided was spacious with pillows and bed sheets in clean and well maintained including wash room. The amenities like TV, geyser provided in working condition. There was no view from the room. Food quality was very nice but there are no varieties in menu. We only arranged sightseeing trip there are helped in by guiding for us. I went with my family in the month of March. The money I spend and my stay was valued. I like to recommend this hotel to other travel.
We stayed for 2 nights. The reservation was prompt. The directions given to reach the place spot on. First of all this is a homestay with the hosts. My mother was sceptical when we first reached the place as it is a little away from the hustle and bustle of madikeri. But that only adds to the charm of this place. Anyway she liked the place once we settled down. The Kodava food prepared with love was superb. Second day we were taken on a wonderful trip around the huge estate. Madikeri has a a lot to offer in terms of sightseeing. Will definitely go back.
Location was very good and it very nice cozy place to stay. The stay was very comfortable here. It was easily located. The staff was very co-operative. They are very prompt and helpful. Appearance from inside and outside was good. The rooms were spacious, neat and clean. We have the cottages, TV and geyser were in working condition. There was no view from the room. The washroom was very clean. Food facility was not there. I didn't face any delay in check in and check out. The other activities were not provided. It was less expensive without food and will recommend to others. The hotel did not arrange any sightseeing for us. My suggestion will be they should arrange the folding facility.
I went with my wife and my parents for a one day trip to the place. It was raining heavily, but by the time we got out of the car, the host was ready welcoming us with an umbrella. We felt the warmth immediately in the chilling air. The host introduced us to the helper Baiju, who was always ready to listen to us and helped us with anything required. The place is amidst acres of coffee plantation and Baiju offered us taking a round and show us a small water fall in the estate. The cottage had all modern amenities required and some basic food items. The only problem we faced was to get some additional food from Madikeri around 3-4 km. But once we get out and get something the cottage has a full fledged kitchen to freeze or warm. Since it was raining we were confined mostly in the cottage but the owner was always ready to give suggestions. He suggested us to come when the coffee was ready to be crushed and extracted. He also has a full fledged winery and antique wine making items which easily made it a informative trip too. The cottage has a very romantic, isolated, scenic verandah which is best to be enjoyed with coffee drinks. The host even treated us with few cups of home grown coffee in his house.
I had been to Coorg with my husband and some friends over a weekend in July just to break the monotony of city life. This was my third trip to Coorg and I was expecting what I had already experienced in my earlier trips which was good but not what I would call exhilarating. This time we had chosen Victorian Verandaz after a lot of online research. Being two families with two very small kids, we wanted a bit of privacy and space, so we opted for the 'Rustica' cottage which was tucked away neatly at the base of the undulated estate (Modur estate) where Victorian Verandaz was housed. Also, the place was not too far from Madikeri town (6 to 7 km) which made it all the more easy to access. The hosts were extremely courteous and caring and after the long road journey, they made us feel completely at home immediately with a sumptuous spread of traditional Coorgi cuisine for dinner (on prior request, since the Rustica Cottage operates on self help basis). The cottage itself was well-furnished and kitchen was well-equipped with the required appliances, utensils, gas stove and water filter. We couldn't have asked for better! It was truly a 'home away from home'. The next day, in spite of the heavy rains, we were escorted by Mr. Thimaiah (the proprietor) himself for a short trek around the estate which also included a visit to the waterfall at the bottom of the hillocks within the estate. Overall, it was a truly wonderful stay and rejuvenated us completely. The Rustica cottage at Victorian Verandaz offered all the amenities we could ever want including a television and a fridge. The kids had a gala time indoors since it was raining throughout. And if that isn't enough, we were also offered laundry service by the caretaker's wife who stays in the property just next to Rustica cottage. Since the breakfast was a part of the package, we were treated to amazing traditional breakfast as well as a daily supply of bread, eggs, milk, ingredients for tea/coffee, etc. For lunch, we took a short drive to Madikeri town. The only thing we would do different if we visit the place again is preferably avoid the rainy season and if we happen to go during the rainy season again, we'd carry along appropriate rain wear and footwear (we did the estate trek with floaters and peep toes and got a few leeches crawling inside our track pants!). Also, we had paid a part of the charges while booking the place and since we happened to extend the stay by a day more (we loved it so much), we ran short of cash to pay while checking out so we paid through online bank transfer after reaching Bangalore. So carrying a little extra cash won't hurt!
Top Reviews of Victorian Verandaz
The experience was unique and relaxing at the Victorian Verandaz. The host are caring which is very evident the moment you do your bookings to stay at their property. They would be at constant touch to ensure you get there safely and they don't forget you once you leave their place, they call to check if you got back too. They also look carefully into your needs as we needed a special diet which they made sure for arranged accordingly and also the room was as per our requirement. The property is huge and you could easily plan to do a picnic at different location within the property. The rooms face this hilly scenery which is filled with creative and fine colours of trees and plantation, which you can just sit and keep watching for hours. The rooms are clean and kept in tip top condition with a good variety of rooms depending on the family size. The washrooms have much more than basic amenities with running hot water during the day. The place is worth a visit but above all the facilities it’s the host who make you feel good and they are just there whenever you need them and they do always respect your privacy and do go out of the way to make sure you have had a good time which instigates a desire to come back again.
We went there in the month of April and stayed over for two nights. Although it just drizzled the day we arrived, the climate was absolutely blissful. We arrived at Victorian Verandaz in the evening and were greeted by lovely estate-grown coffee and cookies. Since it was going to be our first home-stay, we were a bit sceptical about what to expect but were amazed by the hotel like rooms and amazing hospitality. The Verandah connecting the rooms is full of nice artefacts and magazines (I immersed myself in the readers digest issues there). Next morning we went off for an estate walk with an enthusiastic guide. We wandered through what seemed like forest like coffee plantation, saw many varieties of bats, beetles, touch-me-nots. It was amazing to see the vast 100+ acres coffee estate owned by the Thimmaiah, complete with a waterfall too. Day two was full of touristy sight seeing. The hosts were kind enough to arrange for our transportation and even bargain on our behalf. The stay was extremely warm and friendly. A special mention for the food. This was the highlight. Right from a very filling breakfast (with both Indian and American menu items) to the rich scrumptious meals, the Kodagu cuisine was an extreme delight. All in all a must stay place in Coorg. Trust us, you will come back with a bag full of cherishable memories.
The cottage is located with the wilderness of the estate and you get to enjoy the fresh air, the sounds of nature in the morning. The hosts are friendly and care-taking. If you plan in advance you can also take a walk in their estate and paddy fields.
If we were not at Victoria veranda we cannot enjoy Coorg, it was excellent experience staying there and everything was excellent. We were advice better for being Coorg, nice food and tea, better room and the area was with green gardened, excellent hospitality and we enjoyed a lot.
I traveled there by own vehicle with my husband for romantic holiday in April month 2013. Ambiance of the hotel was excellent. Location was fantastic. Booking and front office was fabulous. Coorg place is very nice for travel. Staff behavior was helpful. Services were quick and on time. Rooms were well maintained, neat and tidy. All basic amenities were available like TV, AC, geyser, etc. Outside view was available from the room window. Food was superb. It is a recommendable hotel for travelers.
Stay with a local Coorgi family, learn how to pluck and process coffee while exploring pristine wilderness, this is what a weekend in
