Tried filling form, tried contacting them on phone continuously for 2 weeks. They never receive calls or they will disconnect call as soon as they receive it. I will... More

A property located in the middle of lush green farm which makes it a comfortable place to stay all around the year. Friendly staff and convenient location with easy access... More

If you are visiting Shimoga or Jog falls, then Stay @ Matthuga! It's a very big, green, peaceful place with number of beautifully designed and maintained cottages. Huge rooms, no TV, no mobile network coverage, and the whole family together... ideal place to spend time together and have fun! Some of the best features of this place - modern cottages,... More

Visited with friends. Stay was excellent, beautiful cottages, stay close to nature and very helpful workforce. Jog falls and other sight seeing places are nearby. Only downside here is no ATM around so do carry cash. We walked 6kms for cash withdrawal, but it was a fun evening walk for me, not everyone would like to walk as much. Must... More

The cottages are big n nice, whereas the rooms in the main building are small and not the beat. The food is basic vegetation food. You get dry chapati , rice... More
