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

The resort is on large plantation/farm with 10 mins drive from Jog falls. When we visited there with family, we took 2 rooms so you get the entire cottage with good common play area to yourself. 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

We booked a cottage room via Makemytrip & when we arrived at the location, we were given a room by the door of the main homestay house. When we pointed out that the room was not as per booking, the manager didn't want to accept the mistake & the goofup at their end. He started talking rudely to us and... More

I had chosen this place mainly for privacy and to get the feeling of being far away from city noise. I did the booking by email and transfered advance by NEFT. I had the option of choosing a full cottage or a separate room. I had chosen the latter. I travelled from Bangalore by Talguppa express (11 PM departure) and... More

This property is neither a home stay nor a resort though has a plantation around which gives a good feel. Very expensive cottage with spacious room and clean bathroom but lumpy mattress and pillow.

No room service, fixed menu with no choice or options offered. 2. They insist on full payment in advance, did a bank to bank transfer which got returned with the comment..."Account Unavailable" Thankfully they accepted the payment during check-out.

Stayed for a night in this place during mid September. Ideally located near Jog Falls in the middle of the nature. The rooms were excellent and food (veg only) was excellent. The car parking area near the main building is little bit narrow. Maybe the management can slightly improve it.
