The Nest Inn
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Masinagudi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights (13-Apr to 15-Apr). This hotel is located quite near opposite to Masinagudi Bus Stand. Rooms are simple and clean. Bathroom is quite spacious and neat but not sure why they have not put an exhaust fan. There is a veranda where you can sit and relax. The garden is also nicely decorated with many varieties of flowers. Overall nice ambiance.
The food in the restaurant was like homemade food and not much spicy and we really loved it. The number of staff seems to be few so at times if you find no one near restaurant you can surely find them near reception.(as they multitask). This is not a problem as hotel is small. Staff are very helpful and courteous.
They will arrange trekking trips for you on demand and also jeep safari. We liked the trekking trip. For jeep safari they generally take you towards Moyar where there are greater chances to catch glimpses of animals. Overall a nice stay and would recommend if you are looking something simple and affordable.

We arrived at the Nest Inn after very long and uncomfortable journey from Fort Cochin. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable but the hotel should invest in some new sheets as ours were rather frayed. Bathroom was clean and there was hot water which was bliss!!
After our game drive in the evening we came back for dinner - service at the restaurant was a bit disorganised but fortunately food was good. Internet access was available for small charge at shop a few minutes walk away. This hotel could do with some updating. Location is very good close to Mudumalai National Park and it's also fun to walk around in Masinagudai

Nest Inn is located right at the Entrance of the Mudumalai NP, what makes it a good base. The hotel area looks as if it was very lovely when it was build, but nowadays some restoration would help. Apart from that: The room was huge, the bathroom also and there is a roofed veranda in front of it, where you can relax and eat. It was clean, the hotel staff is super-friendly, the food good and the garden lovely. Good place to go there as a base for Trekking the National Park, but don´t stay longer.

Room Tip: A room upstairs (over the restaurant) to get a good view.

small but adequate rooms biggest pluses are teamaker in the room, bright lights in fact brightest of any hotels i have ever stayed makes the room very cheerful and one can actually read they had south indian breakfast besides eggs and cereals which was adequate but surely little taste improvement should be there very bland it is friendly and nice staff though not too efficient kitchen staff had no imagination whatsoever and biggest grouse is that the tv never worked all in all vfm

Room Tip: do try and be away from lifts

One of my friends recommended this place and I went to this place with some expectations.
Masinagudi: This is a decent place where you could go for safari, but you could see animals if you are lucky. This place is like a village, calm and close to Ooty(32kms).
Hotel location: This is very close to Masinagudi bus stop.
Room: Room is very clean. Towels are not clean, they didnt give shampoo. Hot water is not hot. We paid 1500/day and I felt it was OK.
Hotel facilities: Not a resort, no pool, no spa, nothing. It was a mere hotel
Staff: Good behaviour. As other people mentioned, you wouldn't know who is manager or boy from dress as no dress code exists.
Food: Food was OK, but language is a problem as most of the boys speak only Tamil. Dont expect great food. They had buffet on Xmas eve, but charged 350Rs with limited menu and I felt it is very expensive.
Travel arrangements: it is expensive, best thing is just walk to the bus stop and you would find the same thing at cheaper price.

Had a great trip with my friends. Of the hotel, It is right in the heart of Masnagudi, which makes it an easy access, the food (buffet) tastes so good and the ambience is good. The staffs there responded well and made sure we felt it as home. The rooms were clean and were big enough, the rest rooms were well maintained. The trekking, safaris were good, we were lucky though to see the animals.

We had a wonderful time spent in Nest Inn, a special thanks to the staffs, owner for making it a good experience with so much relaxed stay.

I had the best exp ever. Will ensure to choose this place again and also recommend it for other. The Stay and the Food was really nice.

It is the perceptive and friendly service that makes it worthwhile staying in this small family-run hotel. The owners and staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. In the afternoon, the staff would bring out snacks and coffee for guests who had opted to spend the day in the shade of the palm trees in the little garden. At no charge.
