Nestled within a coffee estate, this homestay:s biggest usp is the hospitality and comfort provided by staff. Very prompt and courteous. Plus the rooms are clean and comfortable. All in all an absolute steal for the price paid. If you're looking for spectacular views, or something more rustic/adventurous then this is not the right place. Try something close to kemmanagundi....

The place is secluded with only sounds of nature around you. Exactly what we were looking for! The staff even went out of the way to make our anniversary special. Thank...

The upper floors were not clean. Food was very average. Being a bigger group the staff was hard pressed all the time. Location was the...

Beautiful property, great food, and wonderful people. Have been there twice and would love to visit again. The rooms are well-maintained, and if you don't have plans to move around, the best thing is to chill out at the Hidden Valley.

The location is decent and the place is decently kept. But for the costs we expected better. The place is nice and serence but the food was average and the options which were given to us were VERY limited. The staff were good but seemed to be a bit uninterested and since we were the only guest in the place,...

Ours was a brief stay but we did enjoy the estate and all that it had to offer. Food was good and the service/hospitality was great too. All of us enjoyed the estate walk in the morning. Visiting the place with a large group of family and friends will result in best overall experience.
