Mattuga is a very good homestay just 8 Kms before Jog falls. It seems to be a family run business and the rooms are decent and spacious. It serves only vegetarian food and it was simple and homely. We just stayed for 1 day and the experience was pleasant. Recommended for groups as well as families.

It's a good place to stay given the proximity to Jog falls, but it's neither a home stay nor a resort. The place of stay is between a plantations, maintained well - worth for a day's stay to visit the falls and nearby places. The food is very simple basic food - tastes good like home cooked food - not... More

The resort is about 8kms from Jog falls. The rooms are spacious and adequate for a family. Home cooked food is delicious. The owner was not around but the care taker helped us with directions to places around like Gudavi Bird sanctuary about 50kms around. Overall we had a nice stay here. One tip: if you are coming from Bangalore,... More

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.

Stay location is too good with surrounded by farm. more than hotel, its like home stay. room service was also nice. we get vegetarian food only there, with very good quality. Jog falls is hardly 10mins drive from there. Swimming pool was getting ready when we visited there.
