“A good place to stay in Chikmagalur”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Away from the city husle and bustle, this place is located on the hills in the coffee plantation. The location is quite good. The Bunglow is in a huge area with two buildings one where the owners stay and the other on the opposite side for the guests. The walk around this place is great. Access by road to other places is also convenient, except the last stretch of road is not tarred.

A bit old place and could be better maintained, the room I had, had corridors on 3 sides and lacked privacy. Had to keep the windows closed and without an AC becomes a bit uncomfortable. The room had a double bed and also a extra bed which was good for my family with 2 kids.

The best thing about the place is the food, it was excellent. They would also pack food for you if you go out on a trip and cannot come back for lunch. They served it hot and when you wanted. Like home made food, just a normal meal, no extras like juice or drinks or salad, etc.

Getting there is not easy as you need to be guided the first time. They usually send someone to guide you from a place you can get to easily. Make sure you remember the directions and distance each time you turn, because everytime you drive in and out you need to follow the path. The way is quite straight forward once you get there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room inside the house, they will have a better privacy.

weekend well spent , ambience, hospitality is to the liking. Surronded by coffee plantation it was a pleasant experience. Food was served as requested on time and hot. However , taste of the food can still improve. Walk in the coffee plantation was a pleasant one with the rain in the air. Away from corporate jungle to a real jungle was a relief. We were the only guest for the weekend and we got to enjoy the faclilities in the house.

We went for a 2 day trip to chickmagalur for a team outing...this place is but out of main city but cool and calm Place...food offered were good and staffs are very friendly..you will not feel it like a lodge or hotel...it's just like a individual house where you can relax...you can also see nearby coffee estates in the morning ...word of caution - you should have your own transportation.

We were a team of 13 people who decided to go to Chikmagalur for a team outing. We selected Lotus Pond Homestay as our place of our stay. Luckily our decision turned out to be a good one and we had real good stay there. The food and the hospitality were really good. The Homestay was surrounded by some really beautiful coffee plantations which adds to the beauty of the Homestay. Overall it was a very comfortable stay in the Homestay, will be looking forward to visiting it again.

we were a couple and had a pleasant stay for 3 nights in end of july...it just made us fall for chikmaglur again..amazing place for a retreat...located away from the town for about 13km and in to the hills....is a very calm,serenic and safe place, since the road leading to the home stay is a private road for about 3 km...must point out. "is the food" we savoured every bit of it for 3 days....and this plc is worth every penny.. and the hospitality was very good...

We stayed in this homestay for 2 nights .The stay was comfortable and food was homely & excellent. Located about 13 kms from Chikmangalore town , this homestay is inside a coffee plantation . A guest house converted into homestay ,lotus pond have accommodation facilites for about 10 guests. Places like Mulliangiri , belur,Bababudhangiri are 30-45 mins drive from lotus pond and kemmanagundi hill station can be reached by 2 hrs drive. We enjoyed the green surroundings , cool climate and the silence all around. Best time to visit will be during dec-jan or during end of rainy season . Climate at Chikmangaore was hot and humid ,but at homestay , it was pleasant ( we stayed during march-1st week). This homestay is a best option for travellers looking for budjet accommodation and for family trips.

Room Tip: 2 Rooms with attached bath rooms and2 rooms common bathrooms available .
