Everything about Gonnakal Homestay was beautiful. From the time of booking to reaching there to the beautiful Malnad food to the hospitality, everything was top notch. Being equally distant from Mulyangiri and Kemmengundi, this is the perfect place to stay at Chikmagalur. This is a must visit property.

We stayed here for a couple of days. It was an outing with our officemates. The hospitality from the people in the house, the rooms where we stayed, the food, the coffee, the place altogether is a complete package. There was a bonfire evening and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

While we struggled to reach there and on the whole way thinking whether we are driving towards the right way or not, the destination makes up for all the trouble. Its a postcard picture.

The best part is the hospitality. Home away from home. Approach road of about 1.5 Kms. is rather not good. The rooms in the Main house need to be done up better by providing T.V. Except BSNL nothing works here.

Location - very good. Scenic mountains spread out in the distance, visible right from the house. No obtrusive signs of civilization for kilometres. Food was quite good, and hospitality by a certain young man was commendable. The only let down was the room which, although had nothing wrong with them, simply don't stand up to the high standards that the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience hospitality at its best at Gonakal, a 360 years old heritage abode midst the scenic beauty of Malnad's lush green forests, widespread coffee plantations and the intoxicating aroma of the black pepper creepers. Situated at just 24 ks from Chikkamagalur, Gonakal has a history of more than 700 years earmarked by Tipu Sultan's visit and the reign of the Hoysalas. A famous temple dedicated to the triumphant warriors of the glorious past is at a stone throw distance. Dwelt by six generations of Royal family, Gonakal is located on the road connecting Chikkamagalur and Tarikere. The unmatched melody of streams trickling down the valley while sipping steaming hot coffee augments the already perfect evenings. Find yourself very close to nature as you listen to the silent call of the passing clouds. Homely Malnad dishes unheard of in other regions makes the stay all the more special and enjoyable. ... more   less
