The title sums up my judgement of the property, which is trying to scale up to be a resort. At the end it gives the feel of a budget lodge in any 2nd or 3rd tier town. Lets start with the pros first. The property is located in a gorgeous area on the way to Jog Falls, a few kms... More

We booked a cottage room in Matthuga in early July for our stay during the 15th August long weekend. We stayed one night in this home stay cum resort. We reached at around 4:30PM and the check-in was smooth. The cottage rooms are pretty big and the bathroom was clean. The room boy brought towels and soap for us. Besides... More

(had not used it though) - as the stay was only for a night. - Food was just about average. Unlimited... More

The cottages are clean and the food is nice. The new cottages are extremely spacious and good enough to accommodate 8 - 10 people each. Mr.Subramanian, the care taker, and other staff have been extremely warm and cordial. Would recommend this highly for people looking for a budget friendly stay at Jog falls.

When we stay in places like this, the looking forward is for Authentic food. we went there in monsoon to enjoy the village when it rains. The food was just ok, nothing spectacular. The rooms were large and there was hot water for sure. Probably the time we visited was not good as there was huge contruction happening, more rooms,... More

Narahari is the owner who is very helpful. Restaurant is only veg but the food was just wonderful. They brought food to the room... More

A very nice homestay close to Jog Falls. It is a few kms from the Talaguppa village (which has a railway station with daily trains from bangalore) and about 10 min drive from Jog Falls. The host are very courteous and treat guests like family extensions. The facilities in the place are improving with more people visiting but the value... More

This is place is run by the owners and the effects are there to see. Nice, spacious and quiet cottages. No TV (a plus!), good food, right on the highway and quite close to the falls. The owners also helped us get a taxi (with a very helpful driver) to take us to Jog Falls and several ancient temples nearby.... More
