It was a great experience for us. We stayed for 3 days in B's Hive. Great place. If you are searching for a quite place to rejuvenate yourself this is it. Except the approach everything was very good. The housekeeper was very good. Thanks Balaji for the great experience.

Its a guest house with only 4 rooms. Not a luxury place to stay but I can assure you will get amazed with the view from the room. Amenities like tea & coffee maker, Geyser (a must have), color TV (14 inch CRT monitor) is available. Road to this hotel is bit odd and better to ask for a pickup... More

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 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
