Firstly Spectrum is not what I imagined was a home stay, where the owner stays in the property and guests stay in adjacent room/s. This is more like a hotel where there are 8 rooms in the closer building and another 8-10 in the further building. Having said that, the place is well maintained, clean and neat and located in...

Located amidst nice coffee estate and within good proximity of the Chikmagalur town, Spectrum home stay is definitely a great option for visitors coming down to Chikmagalur. Rooms are big and clean, very hospitable staff who serve fresh good food for breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We were served nice and hot snacks over camp fire. The home stay is very... More

Spectrum Homestay at Chikmagalore is a very good option for those looking to spend a relaxing stay at this hill station in Karnataka. Chikmagalore is of course not a hill station like Ooty where it is chilly cold. The weather here is pleasant even in summer, though not chilly. The main attraction of Chikmagalore are the various waterfalls, trekking and... More

Pros: 1) With all 3 meals, coffee, snacks and campfire included in the cost per person it is surely one of the most value-for-money homestays around. 2) Homestay is very well located. Just 14 km away from Mullayanagiri which is easily the biggest attraction around. About 10 km from Chikmagalur town. 3) Food is awesome, well cooked and with a... More

Little did I know about the property before checkin. But was truly amazed by the location where it was located, the extremely helpful staffs and the scenic nature surrounding. Firstly welcomed by a decent drink, we were taken to our room. I dont think there would be a single property as decent as spectrum is. Extremely clean rooms and well... More

Extremely well maintained rooms, clean toilets, dry cleaned bed sheets gave me first good feel. People there welcomed me with lemon drink...which tasted very good and i ordered the same when...

We were a group of 9 friends and had a building with 5 rooms and a bonfire to ourselves. I believe there is another building within the resort of similar size. 5 rooms were 1 double bed, 3 tripe beds and a 7-bed. We were never informed about the room sizes and we assumed it would be a standard double... More
