Excellent place to be. The hospitality and special interest taken by the owners themselves to keep us comfortable is great. And mouth watering home food and hot water all time is a topping for all! The brick shelter in that serene place is a heaven to be :)

This is a excellent place... The owners are really friendly..The food which is served is great. By the way its the malnad cuisine.. The catch is u have wifi and only BSNL network work's there... You need not to worry... They have a Lindline connection as well which they won't charge for a call...

Majestic sceneries, delicious home cooked meals and our lovely hosts made our stay at Gonakal truly enjoyable. The inexhaustible needs of our 10 person family were catered to upon request and the people working there were so co operative. Some great memories were the bonfires at night and the quad bike rides. We spend a lot of our time exploring... More

The experience was breathtaking from the morning waterfall trekking to the night bon fires, two days just flew away. Its a perfect destination if you have a weekend off and want... More
