I was there in December. The destination of the hotel was excellent. The hotel was located in a very secluded area, away from the city. The connectivity of the hotel to the city was absolutely zero, which was nice for me. It was a scenic beauty; it was very, very beautiful. The way they arranged things made me very comfortable. It was a friendly resort. The appearance of the hotel was very good. The people there was very nice, they were quite helpful and caused us no delay. Service was excellent. The food was catered to my needs. Room was well organized. It was well maintained and neat. Breakfast was very wholesome. They took us for a plantation walk and a night walk as well. They made arrangement for us to watch the sunrise. These were some of the main things that we could do within and around the resort. I was with my family when I stayed here. The overall, we had a marvellous experience staying here.
The destination of the hotel was good. The parking place was available at the hotel. There was no sightseeing arranged by the hotel. The transportation facility was not provided by the hotel. The garden was available at the hotel. The food was value for money. I would like to recommend this hotel to upcoming travellers. The hotel was located nearby the bus stand. The staff were well behaved in the hotel. There was no activity arranged by the hotel. The location of the hotel was very good.
This is a home stay in a serene locality. This resort belong to the coffee estate The rooms are big and clean, it will remind you of the British architecture. Ambience is so peaceful and divine just in the lap of green hills The staff of this stay were very helpful. They only prepare the food with fresh items and it's really tasty Coffee is the best thing about this hotel rather Chikmagalur, drink as much you can. The hotel has some indoor games and they arrange for bonfire. Though you cannot play loud music as it is in Jungle area Do not forget to go for trekking and make sure you are wearing boots because this area has tremendous number of leeches, also try to carry salt with you The hotel staff only acted as guide and took us for the walk through the hills and jungles It was a calm yet adventurous travel escape for me
It was pet friendly place, very simple but refreshing place to be with your whole family including your pets. The staff here were the biggest plus. Away from office emails and closer to many trekking points in Chikmagalur. Pets just enjoy the place as they don't have any restrictions here.
I have alreay posted in the your website. Nevertheless I would be very brief. This is a very nice place, but not maintained or nurthured properly. The house keeping lis very bad. The food was very good, tasty, crispy, fresh and was served without any fuss.
Hunkal woods resort is located in a great location...the surrounding view is awesome. I visited this resort in the month of August 2008, so it was raining heavily and everywhere it was green. We went in a group of 6 adults and 2 infants with 100% advance payment. It takes 6 hours from bangalore to reach this place. We were told that once you reach Hunkal woods, there would be people waiting to receive us and take us up to the resort in 4 wheel drive vehicles. But we couldnt find anyone waiting and lost our way. That was the first sad experince. We were told that the entire bunglow would be provided to us. The bunglow looks great from outside, but inside the condition of rooms is just about average. Water was leaking from common area and also one of the rooms. The mattress used in one of the beds was wet and inspite of our telling them, they didnt change it in the first night. Moreover, the TT table was being used as dining table and meals were served there even for people who were staying outside the bunglow. This, kind of, eroded our privacy and this was the second sad experince. Food quality was good, but for all you non vegeterians, please be prepared for the worst as getting non veg is highly unpredictable. The people who served there were well behaved, but the service was a bit erratic. for example, we had to repeatedly ask for the same thing, sometimes, they just forgot.
From office, a group of 10 had gone to Hunkal Woods on the weekend of 14th June. The place is about 30 km from Chikmagalur and the roads till the entrance to the estate are really nice. Since we went there during the rains, the estate roads were slushy and our Tempo traveler got stuck and had to be towed by a tractor. Guess going there during the rains will not be a good idea, if you\'re going to drive down. Hunkal Woods have their own 4-wheel drive jeeps and can pick you up from Chikmagalur. The accommodation is a 4-room old British bungalow. 2 of them have attached bathrooms and there is a common bathroom for the other rooms. There is also a dorm kind of place where 5-6 persons can easily sleep. The food is home cooked and was very tasty. It\'s vegetarian and you\'ll have to inform them at the time of booking, if you need non-veg food. Recreation wise, they have a TT table and then a dart board outside. You can also laze around in the hammock and if the weather permits, you can go on a coffee trek. Overall, a nice place to visit if you\'re a group of 4 or more, as they book the entire bungalow for you.
