Really it was good to stay in B's hive. We stayed in Housing Unit for a nite and Terrace room superior for second nite. Terrace room superior is very good and we enjoyed our stay there. One big drawback is to find the homestay. It is bit difficult to find the homestay. We should always hire a taxi to reach... More

B's hive is a small guest house, located in an unusual place for tourists. The place is mainly residential and this place is no different than a house with few intelligently designed rooms which don't make you miss the feel of a hotel. The best part though is the owner of this place Mr. Balaji who diligently ensures that each... More

We stayed with our family in this place just two nights and three days. Not knowing anything about places to stay in Kodaikanal, we started only with phone numbers from Trip Advisor. This place much located in the centre of Kodai with all places of visit very closeby. The room offered to us was beautifully located with a scenic view.... More

We chose B'hive after reading so many positive reviews in trip advisor, and we are happy to write another one. It was our honeymoon trip, and we stayed at B'hive's for 6 days and 5 nights. We chose the 'Terrace room superior'. We were spellbound by the view outside - the hills, the beautiful mist,.. the list is endless. The... More

This is my second time visiting the place in 3 years and the experience just keeps getting better. Excellent customer service and really good home cooked food is just what is consistent in this place. I went there this time with my 17 month old daughter and its absolutely safe. Mr Balaji the inn owner personally made sure we get... More

Initially, I didn't believe the spot would be suitable for our stay as we were running short of hotels for a last minute travel. So, with glance of quick reviews and half minded, we reached the hotel and to my surprise B's Hive was a beauty though difficult to get there with a tricky roads . Wonderful spot and the... More

Great location if you dont want to be in noisy downtown. This is my second stay at B's Hive. I will definitely stay there for next trip to Kodai.Its a bit of a walk to downtown if you dont have a vehicle, but great location if you do

We stayed in B's hive for four nights. We had a good first impression - the place is lovely, clean, has a great view, and is in a quiet area. But we ended up having a very strange and poor experience of the service there and as a result can't leave a good review. It's worth noting that there is... More

I have also contacted the guest to repay the money directly and shall initiate transfer on receipt of the bank details.It would be great if the... More

The room is really good and worth. The location is awesome. Especially the inner big size glass window is awefull to look out. The room is neately arranged. The seperate bolcony at the terrace rooms has high privacy. The only problem is, it is distant from the main road. Apart from it, its good.
