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.

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
