Went here with group of friends and families. Location wise it's good...Full of greenery and natural feel as per the name. But basic amenities are missing. Maintenance is poor and food if u r a veg is better and don't try the non veg stuff. Swimming pool and rooms are full of mosquitoes and insects. I would say it might... More

Just returning from a weekend trip to Stay Simple Riverdale. It delivered on what it promised. Simple place with really good staff who ensure good service. Try the local cuisine (ragi mudde and sambhar) at the restaurant. It was really good. As other reviewers mention, the focus is on simplicity.. so you wont find luxury here. Feels like you are...

The hotel is near kokkare bellur, the drive was fantastic except for a couple of km before reaching the destination. The stay was pleasant and the staff were friendly.
