“Comfortable place" worth it"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

We had been to Coorg on a family trip. again choose to stay at COORGSHELL this time also.
we found it better than before, the rooms are well maintained, cozy with in house dining facilities. Food is pure vegetarian and very homely, we really enjoyed the food and stay,
our sight seeing arrangements were arranged by Mr Ravi and who took personal care of us.Thank you very much.
room service , house keeping was up to mark. and surely we would recommend some our office colleagues and friends who will be visiting Coorg to put up at Coorgshell .

Room Tip: Prefer the 1st floor rooms or the backside 1st floor rooms - well maintained and Clean

It's a simple yet nice place to stay in madikeri. There are not many rooms but the rooms are all clean and well maintained. There's no visiting places nearby this hotel. I would suggest getting a hired taxi then it would be perfect for the whole trip. Worth staying.

This booking was done by my friend through some deal. We got 3 rooms for 2 days in a good budget. We just booked in a hurry by reading 2-3 reviews as the deal was in last minute. But, we liked the accommodation very much. There are some gym equipment, which we didn't use.There is kitchen and you can order the food items as well, we didn't use this also. Finally, if you are looking for an accommodation which is at a good distance to all the places in a budget, you can opt for this

Room Tip: Don't prefer rooms in ground floor as there is lost of disturbance as they are near to reception...

Coorg Shell - Useless home stay - I stayed for 4N and 5D
issues :
1.NO cook is there -we have to place order to room boy and he will get food from two hotels only ( Hotel Sea Land and Hotel Poornima - If you see these two hotels - they are actually road side hotels - one oppsite to KSRTC bus stand )
2.NO Room Service - like cleaning the room / throwing waste - nothing was there
3.No Warm water for drinking
4.Room size is smaller than a average bed room size
5.Room quality was dirty - what ever you see in the website is wrong
6.Extra Bedsheet was stinking like some baby has done chu chu in it
7.Not even a coffee shop / hotel is near by to this home stay - we have take auto every time for Rs.20
8. coorg shell home stay foto in website looks as if it is near garden .. actually its in some street and next butcher shop and opposite to Kodugu channel .. near by to mechanic shops ...


Worst part - NO hotels are good there for Veg and Non veg ..
I find only one good resturant - "Raintree" that is the best - behind town hall - rates are reasonable when compared to Bangalore hotel rates

Good part : Every auto driver is so good and they strictly follows the rules . That too they really good with tourist .,., First time in life i saw auto driver strictly follow no entry , one way etc ... Even taxi guys are also nice and they dont cheat - they take it like a job - 9:00 to 6:00

I used auto's 15 time at-least and 3 taxi drivers ... out of which i din't find any messy ones - like what you find in Bangalore and Chennai


I strongly recommend this is NOT worthy home stay for the money we paid

For Spices : check for Coffeebeans shop next to hotel poornima - because when you buy in the outskirts of medikeri they try to keep exorbitant prices

Me and my family stayed in Coorg Shell , Madikeri in first week of Oct 2013. We found the stay comfortable and the guest attention pleasing. The rates are reasonable for a/c accommodation, located in the heart of the city, hot water round the clock and option to watch television when you are back from the days sight seeing.
Home made breakfast and dinner was provided on request and we really enjoyed the taste of local food.
Pickup and drop plus sight seeing by taxi was arranged. Mr Swagath is a good guide who takes you in the comfort of his car to the best places in and around Coorg.
Mr Ravi ensured that he and his team are there for extending the warmth and support during your stay in Coorg to make it one of the best vacation for us. Thank you

I had been to Madikeri last week. Had my stay booked over phone with Coorg Shell.
Our stay was comfortable, pleasant and nice. The chauffer arranged by the hotel
acted as Guide, photographer cum chauffer. Behaved well. On our specific request
nice room decorations and special cakes were arranged by them in a memorable way.
Probably due to non-season, their kitchen was not operative. But, we love to visit this
hotel again in a season time. Thanx to Mr Ravi of Coorg shell.

Room Tip: All rooms are identical. Guest House Model. So no problem.
