“Monopolist Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

First of all, we made a big error in judgement by choosing this place for a weekend getaway. Only reason was that it was close enough from Bangalore for Sat-Sun trip. Absolutely No attaction to this place.

Now about the hotel. Well the hotel was very very average. The only reason I am not rating it worked out cheap for us. The extra mattresses provided were really thin, and we had to argue with the guy to give us extra mattresses.

The Food was extremely average and additionally, they have monopolist attitude as they know that there is no other decent place to eat in town. Every time we ordered food, it never took than less than 1 hour to get the food, and that too after shouting at the waiter a couple of times. Infact once the service was so slow that we had to walk-out just by finishing half of our meal.

My advice: Don't go to Yelagiri at all!

This review is only for the Restaurant and not for the Hotel attached!

The 'Nigress' restaurant is the best place in Yelagiri to get excellent food. You can get best soft and juicy Chicken Tandoori, Kababs, their own special chicken Bakodas and don't miss the excellent Maggi done with a different Masala which is adored by my children.

The simple Veg Thali in afternoon and reasonably priced Buffet Breakfast (Rs.75) are worth mentioning.

Tea is also the best you can have in Yelagiri.

I visited Yelagiri in mid of August and as it was a sudden plan, i was not able to get hotels online. By searching itself, I came to know about this hotel. I just called and booked on phone. The best part is we paid after reaching to hotel itself.
It's the every first stop in Yelagiri, you can say the entry point to Yelagiri. Hotel has got three kind of rooms - Cottage, Big rooms and mini rooms. I booked mini one (1300 Rs). The staff was very helping. Room had TV, attached bathroom and beds. Geyser is there but there is problem of current supply in Yelagiri; we could hardly get hot water. The Hotel has got parking area. There is a bus stop right out side of the hotel also. Boating house and Nature park is just 5 mins walk from the hotel.

This hotel has their own restaurant - veg + non-veg. Food quantity was quite good, will give 5 points out of 10 for the quality. We enjoyed playing badminton there. you can enjoy swinging in garden. We also enjoy guavas planted in the garden itself. Overall it was fun in Nigress. Will attach photos soon.

Room Tip: they have rooms and cottages. If you are planing room, go for 1st floor last room, as ground and 2nd...

this place is a great budget hotel...the amenities are very basic thought the attached kerala spa is vouched as very good by people who went for massages there. the food is great for people who eat non veg, vegetarians might not find it that interesting. its at the entrance of Yelagiri and at a short distance from the lake and centre market. great surroundings, bang opposite the tourist information centre yelagiri and a great place for hiking just across it...for long walks. there is a place just outside the hotel that makes great tea. this is an attache` to the hotel.....
Cant stay with family if you have many needs, but good place to stay wit friends where budgeting is a must!...

Room Tip: You might want to take rooms to the back on the ground floor as it offers both privacy and safety,
