We stayed here for 3 nights and experience was great. Friendly staff and very helpful always. Its more like a hotel and not a home stay ! We booked for 2 nights and we got this extended for one more day. My kids thoroughly enjoyed and special mention about shooting. Lohith & Yathish were friendly and guided whenever we needed... More

Let me begin the review by saying that Spectrum is a great place to rest after an exhaustive day of sight seeing. I guess that is the key requirement one should look out for and Spectrum satisfies the condition with aces. I have stayed there couple of times and I will stay there in the future too. Yes, there are... More

First things first, the Spectrum is NOT a Homestay. Homestays are about sharing space and culture with a local family. Spectrum is just a basic budget guest house a few kms outside the town of Chikmagalur. At least no homestay I've ever stayed at (both in India and overseas) had a dormitory! The owners don't stay on the property, but... More

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...

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
