My family and I booked this homestay in August for a brief vacation as we did not get rooms in the major hotels in Chikmagalur, but unexpectedly and to our sheer delight this homestay turned out to be the miracle we were looking for, especially coming from one of the most polluted and in-your-face cities, I. E. Mumbai. This homestay rests on a huge estate and the building itself is quite large housing 5-6 rooms with attached bathrooms along with a massive center room and a deck-type room covered with glass so one can take in the expansive view of the surrounding mountains and greenery while sipping on hot coffee and just lazing around. The rooms are spacious with huge windows facing different sides of the estate depending on which room one gets and are equipped with a queenliest bed, a small cupboard and an electronic locker, though ours was not in working order, but that did not really get in the way. The bathrooms are also furnished with good-quality fittings and the basic necessities such as hot water, towels, and soap/shampoo. Coming to the food, it is totally and delectably Malnad style cooking at its best with fresh, pure veggies (you'll know when you taste it), and I am still missing the food. We had at least 2-3 lipsticking varied dishes (veg and non-veg depending) every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and our only grouse was we could not stay longer. The staff are extremely courteous and alter the food quantity to your requirements, though in our case they had to downsize quantity in terms of the carbs as our guts are totally ruined with the toxic food we eat in Mumbai and we have to limit quantity. In terms of things to do, there are indoor games, though not in exactly pristine order, but can do condition. There is also a stacked small library in the TV room for good Reading measure too. For the pool lovers, unfortunately, there is no pool, but trust me that weather is not conducive for pools and since the owner Shree Dev and family are more eco-conscious and avoid wastage of all sorts, I guess a pool just does not fit the picture. There are also the 2 dogs, Brutus and Caesar, absolute sweethearts to enjoy with. One can also go for a guided tour of Sridevi's coffee estate provided the season is right. In summary, if you are thinking of visiting Chikmagalur, do stay at Woodway for a truly home-away-from-home experience and just unwind. Of course, do not expect hotel sort of on-the-call room service where bed sheet and towels are changed every day with room cleaning or that sort of a treatment, but they do change soiled towels on request. The same goes with the idea of being at home and keeping things in proper order, on the lines of a green initiative.
The ambience of the hotel was good. Everything was good in the hotel. The parking facility was available at the hotel. The food was nice in the hotel. The staff response was very good. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel. The experience of the hotel was nice.
Sprawling, well maintained coffee estate with the view of the famous Chikmagalur hills. Nice accommodation in the estate house, they had separate rooms outside for a library as well as for indoor games. We used to have evening hot snacks around a bonfire which we loved. The trek to the nearby "Bande Kallu Gudda" was exhilarating. Overall the experience was a delight as the host promised. The staff taking care of us and pampered us with their attention.
The staff of the hotel were good and friendly to our request. The hotel was located little far from the city and a shopping mall was nearby the hotel. I didn't face any problem during the check-in and check-out procedure. The room provided to me was neat, clean, spacious and maintained. The interior and exterior of the hotel were good. I was able to see the view from my room. The amenities were in working condition. Hot and cold water facility was provided. The food provided to me was good and the quality of the food was also good. The hotel had also provided the activities. I would recommend this hotel to others.

Homestay with 5-6 good rooms. Located right near the Woodway coffee estate . Great Food for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Staff is helpful. They have some actvity options too. Table tennis, Carrom, some board games and a lawn to play any sport. The owner Shreedev is very friendly and took us on an hour long walk in the coffee estate. He shared some interesting coffee trivia. If weather permits they even organize a Bonn fire. I had no complaints from this place. Some of the rooms have a fire place so make sure you ask for one when you book the hotel . At Rs. 3500 per person per night (including food, activities and taxes) it is on the higher side when compared to other homestays. So I wouldnt really call this place value for money, even though I have no complaints . . Reaching the homestay is very simple. Good roads till the homestay.
Good food. Good stay with cozy rooms! The interiors were outrightly beautiful and Sushmita had put some real work into the home! Needs some milestones on the way from highway. Got to see the real paddy fields and into the real world of agriculture! I am very happy to share my feeling and experience at Woodway. The first point that strikes my mind is, the ambience and hospitality they provided which was awesome. The location of the homestay itself was beautiful, which was covered by the huge coffee estate. I really liked the way the labours took care of us and the food they prepared was yummy :) Overall, I felt that the money we have spent is completely worth and we have enjoyed each and every moment. When we were back from the place, we felt we are leaving our own home :)
