Location is very good. It is situated deep in the arabica coffee estate. You could drive your car till the location. Its very good in when its drizzling outside. They have maintained good garden outside. Even some films shootings are also carried out Rooms are pretty good but not romantic enough. Its better to call and negotiate for good room I think its mandatory to opt for food there, if you don't want then call them and calrify before hand. But there are not good restaurants outside though
Certainly not for a couple or ....

Set the expectations right. I will say who will like it and who won’t Who will like it. If you’re going in a considerably big group of more than four or five people. And if you are going in your own vehicle. And if you have already seen Chikmagalur before, you are just going to relax in the countryside and party with your friends or family . The location is tranquil and serene. Covered on all sides by coffee plantation, big trees with pepper climbing on them. Even in summer, this place is cool . The house is a traditional house with most of it having wooden roofs with clay tiles on it. The garden and the balconies, the crafts and works in the out yard, night lighting in the surrounding is quite elegant. Who won’t like it. The great owner of this estate says, he wants to close the links with all third party websites through which the bookings can be done, since they are not paying him sufficiently and other reasons First Interaction with Owner. I booked this though *COMPANY*, I made a call on the day before just to confirm the booking. He gave me a sermon about his property. How the third party sites are not paying them well etc. He told me that at their own website they allow booking only with food. That is for a couple it will be 5000 for two people per day. They want us to take all three meals there unconditionally. He told me there is no eating option nearby, better pay for the food . About the location. Mallandur, more than twenty kilometers from Chikmagalur town. Now, what about sightseeing? Forget sightseeing, these people won’t even pick us up from Chikmagallur bus stand. The taxi charges are in the range of almost thousand one way. Bargaining will bring it down to eight hundred. The homestay people have absolutely no interest in arranging any site seeing. We asked the concierge a hundred times. He kept staring and mumbling something(he could not converse in English or Hindi properly). There was not a proper person to communicate to regarding our sightseeing needs. While coming back from the homestay after checkout, the jeep he arranged us to come back, it was a dilapidated vehicle from the medieval ages, where we had to sit sideways in the back through twisted and bended route back to town to board the bus. That journey had made us dizzy. They take eight hundred for that Jeep for twenty odd kilometers in, whereas to travel back to Bangalore in an Airavat AV Volvo, the charge is around five hundred. About the room and facilities. He has not built a proper path that is tarred or with concrete from the nearest public road that is half a kilometer uneven terrain from the estate. The driver who we hired while going for the check in, was cussing the prickly road with hard irregular stones . No WiFi, no room service. Power failures that extended to hours. No person to speak English/Hindi to. Overall I saw three or four staff including the guy who behaves as the concierge. One other was the cook and a couple of helpers. The day after which it rained the floor of the room became slimy with moisture coming out of it. Food. Food is not bad. Certain dishes good, certain dishes average. And everything will be super delayed due to the less number of staff. Breakfast after 10am, lunch after 2pm, starter for dinner after 8. 30pm and dinner much later than 10pm Cost efficiency. Despite of all this, he charges much more than a 4 star hotel in the Indian cities would. And yes, he wants us to have his food. He is elated by the good reviews on trip advisor I guess. Verdict. As said above, set the expectations right. Certainly not for a couple or a couple of friends who want to visit Chikmagalur for the first time.
