We had been to Nagethole on 24 & 25 th Dec, 2011 & stayed at Jungle Inn Nagerhole for one night, here is feedback.
For kind of prize they charge (Rs. 5500/Room) it is defiantly not worth staying there. There is absolutely no room service, bathroom door’s doesn’t close properly, rooms are not clean, they promised that hot water will be available at 6 AM in the morning, but we got it only at 8.15 AM. Our next day program got completely washed out because we couldn’t leave the place early because of non availability of HOT water and also we were not at all comfortable of taking bath; just imagine you are taking bath with curtain ON.
They claim that they are very close to Jungle but reality is they are 35 KM away from forest from where safari starts. Jungle in offers safari at extra charge (Rs 400/person) is useless, because they simply drive you around main tar roads which you can also do by with your own vehicle. I feel they are taking visitors for a ride; they are virtually inside the juggle.
Food quality very average, equivalent to food what you get in a road side hotel and also very unhygienic, I got black ant in tea, my friend got black ant in Idly (morning breakfast)
While check out nobody was there even to complete check out formalities. Manager was busy taking bath since 9 AM & he was still not available till 11 AM, finally we left the place at 11 AM. We had arranged for our driver’s food and stay (Rs 600/day), hotel staff & manager was very eager to collect that money in the morning while having breakfast (it was very irritating). We had paid complete payment in advance & only balance was driver accommodation payment & way these guys approached us as if we run away without paying the balance. Since manager was not available we paid money to one of hotel staff (designated by manager) I am not sure that is official charges or something else.
Worst thing is, in feedback form there is no option to give ‘poor’ rating, minimum is average. I am totally disappointed with this place and I would like to give 1 star (below poor)
