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

Homestay was nice and the stay was pleasant. It was more like a farm stay, as the place is nestled inside a well maintained farm. I dont have any opinion on the food since i did not get a chance to have the Breakfast or lunch over there. The Cottage is Clean and spacious. If you are coming from Sagara,... More

What impressed us the most was the staff was extremely courteous and pleasant to deal with. They go one step beyond to make your stay comfortable. We had to leave early morning, although... More
