Kindly refer to my earlier reviews on TA about the same property. Probably, nothing much has changed, if it all something has changed, it is for the bad. For me being a repetitive customer using this services of this property was the serene location added to the home food. Now that the earlier Caretaker of the property does not stay... More

I stayed at Stay @Matthuga on 10 July. It was good stay, rooms are spacious, but bit dusty, was not cleaned properly. There was dust on the chairs and table. Otherwise the bed, bathroom and other things were clean. Food was only local cuisine, so if you like local cuisine, then it will not be any issue. Staff is prompt... More

Place was nice and clean. Ample parking. Best part was the food. The hosts were very proactive and cooked nice warm home meals. I had never tasted Malnad cusine before so this was new for me . I would probably go again, The best part is the Karnataka Sarige stops near to the hotel.

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

You feel like staying a mini resort but prices are very affordable. We went with a couple of families and everyone enjoyed the stay. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. 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
