Visited B's hive for the third time. There is again the consistently excellent customer service provided by Mr.Balaji. Place is not changed a bit and the home cooked food still tastes the same good quality. Housekeeping is excellent. The Inn keeper always requests feedback on how to get customer experience better which the bigger hotels never do. Location wise it... More

Neat, clean & Calm. If this what you are looking for at economical price the price you pay apart from the tariff is being little away, manage without a in house restaurant ( food is home cooked, to be told in advance) without a reception. The place is located at the end of a road leading to no where. The... More

BsHive, Owner at B's Hive, responded to this review

Would you believe this is a review from a person who extended his stay? A careful reading brings out the inherent contradictions in this review like:- a deserted place being noisy, his room (superior room) is OK but other rooms are not (how did he know?!! Unless he peeps into other rooms), stay was good for first 2 days but... More

At the outset, I must say that the location of this guest house is very poor. It took around 20-25 minutes just to locate the guest house which otherwise is also far away from actual market / city. We booked 2 rooms located at 1st floor, which were considered as best. Both bathroom showers were having very low water pressure.... More

We stayed at B's Hive for 3 nights, it was a great experience there. The rooms, bed and toilet were neat. The view from the terrace was awesome. From the date of Booking, the owner Mr.Balaji was providing all the necessary information not only about his cottage, but also about kodaikanal, the route and the mode of transport and the... More

If you want to stay out of city's mayhem this is the place. Rooms have a mesmerising view which will really make your day. Food arranged by the caretaker was very good. Only concern is that it is a bit far from the lake area but that has its advantages also

This is not a hotel but like a guest house. Caretaker is there who is a very nice person. But rooms are so so and amenities are not good. Giving one more star for the view which will compensate everything. Recommended for the view loving persons.

Every year as I am passing through Kodai I am staying only at B's Hive. Yes, its not downtown and noisy, but that is exactly why I stay there. The place is perfect for me. No need to go to restaurants as they are cooking nicely

The guest house is difficult to find if you go there by yourself. The room upstair was basic but ok, the Guy who welcome you is fine and the view is nice. BUT there si no restaurant there nor nearby, and unfortunately the night we spent there, 2 weddings in the valley with such à noise coming up to the... More
