It makes very happy to write about Gonakal Homestay (Chikamagalur) as I had great time with my family. The authentic malanad food served here is amazing and the head of the Mr.Girish is quite friendly and down to earth person. The cottages here are cozy and gives a feeling at home.

Stayed here with family and it was just the prefect getaway we were looking from. The approach to the Homestay is off the main road (there is a sign board for Gonakal) - a 10 min ride into the woody area and tea plantations which is amazing. We were a group of 10 people and had booked all but one... More

We visited this beautiful homestay during the last weekend of Jan'15 as part of a biking group and spent three wonderful days gorging on lovely home cooked food and great hospitality by Mr Girish and his family. The morning sunrise and evening sunset against the majestic hills in the background is mesmerizing and would definitely love to go back again.... More

I stayed in gonkal Homestay on 30th of jan one of the best home stays in Chikmaglore. 300 hundred year old building standing majestically with all the best maintenance possible. The food was good with the hospitality of Anudeep and family. Had a great time exploring the place. A good place to stay

The place is in a lovely location, with great food and good service. But there is absolutely nothing to do, no campfire, no organized walks,with zero cellular phone service! Overall a disappointment for us.

The place is totally tucked away from the entire hustle and bustle of the world. Perfect getaway for those seeking some quiet and peace. The added advantage is not having cell phone networks. The place is well maintained, the rooms are very clean and give a feeling of being very close to nature. The host, Anudeep is a very warm... More

After searching for quite a few homestays in chikamagalur , me and my friends ended up in Gonakal Homastay and it was more than we could have asked for . Could not believe that the place is 300 years old because it was very well kept when it comes to cleanliness etc etc . What matters the most is the... More

An awesome place to stay , super delicious food, squeaky clean rooms, nice homely environment and to add on top of all this , surrounded by serenity and amazing scenic view of the mountains. What more can anyone ask for ? . The best home stay I have ever been to.
