When planning for a trip to Sringeri with the elderly and a toddler we did not want to go for the temple accomodation and hence landed on this one as we saw one good review here on Tripadvisor.
This is really a home with 3 bedrooms let out and common dining, kitchen and living room. A couple who lives in an attachment are the care takers and will make meals only if ordered. The food is not anything exotic but tasty home made food. We enjoyed the neer dosa (a Malnad special) with coconut chutney that they made for us. The kitchen offers the guests to cook their food if they choose to.
The location is close to the temple but yet away from the hustle and bustle of the temple street.
At 2000 rupees per room and 250 rupees extra for every additional bed, I felt this is slightly expensive; is that a reason for the low occupancy? 1500 rupees would have been appropriate.
But in totality I liked this place. Really a home away from home.
