I had a pleasant stay at their basic room. It had all I needed for one night in Kodaikanal: clean room with TV, bathroom with hot water, a fantastic view and friendly hosts. Mr Balaji provided me with all information I needed before my stay and was extremely helpful in organising my trip. I would stay there again.

The stay at B's Hive was different from our usual hotel stays. There was a personal touch to everything and we absolutely enjoyed it. The rooms and toilets were clean. The view from the terrace room was brilliant and we loved the tiny sit out on the mezzanine floor. The food served was tasty and totally customized and it was... More

The overall experience of the hotel was really pleasant. The food although a bit pricey is way better than the ones you get outside in hotels. However there are somethings that you need to take into consideration. For example... The exterior paint of the place is a bit worn out, however the interiors are pretty well maintained. Although it has... More

The best thing about B's Hive is the "family feel". The owners and the caretaker took care of all our needs (mainly the food) perfectly well. It was "home away from home". Would definitely want to stay there again the next time we are in Kodai.

We stayed for a night at B's hive. The first and foremost thing is that what you find in the advertisement is what you experience during your stay here. A fantastic experience at a very peaceful place with good homely food, ambiance and a kind hearted caretaker at your service.
