Location: Located just outside the hustle and bustle of Chikamagalur in a quite location. However, this means you need a vehicle to get anywhere out of the hotel. Within 1-2 hours drive of many good tourist spots in the area.

Property: a well maintained property with courteous and warm staff all around. An excellent pool provides good relaxation. The hotel provides tandem cycles to cycle around. A tree house provides good entertainment for the kids. A rec room with table tennis, chess etc can be very useful in the evenings as there is little to do at the time of the day. There is also a outdoor play area with a few equipment for the kids. The property is well laid out, calm with lot of flora. The hotel staff will clean/wash your vehicle for a small charge.

Yes, there are plenty of monkeys around at certain times of the day and they can be aggressive if you have food with you. Dont let young ones running around with food in their hands, by themselves.

Mobile phone connectivity and internet access through your phone can be spotty in many areas of the property.

The hotel can take you on a guided plantation tour. Go on one; the kids will like it. It lasts for about 3 hours total.

Rooms: we had a unit on the first floor and the room was quite big and comfortable, even for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids. We could easily fit an extra bed for our elder kid. Bathrooms were big, clean and fine (shower only). The AC worked fine. Being on the first floor, we had a huge sitting area as well as a balcony (but just watch for the monkeys!).

Service: staff was efficient and courteous.

Dining: we had multiple meals/breakfasts during our 3 day stay and we never got too bored of the food. We ate out only a couple of times. The food spread was quite big with multiple options for both veggies like me as well as meat eaters. Service was efficient. However some of the dessert choices were funky and sometimes lame. Not the highlight of the meal.

Tip: get a room with a breakfast and one meal included package; scour the many web sites; we got ours on makemytrip for a great price. There arent a lot of options in town. Be sure to go to "Town Canteen" in town for the best dosas in the area. A must do.

Room Tip: Get a room on the internet/calling the hotel where they have the breakfast+one meal included in the rate. The package usually also has a plantation tour also included for free. The 2 level cottages are good.

I guess this is the best place to stay in Chickmagalur town and then visit important places such as Kemmangundi( Bhadra tiger sanctuary)/Kudremukh sanctuary/mullayanagiri peak etc.Like many of the Gateway hotels this too is a quite green place.

Room Tip: rooms either have pool view or garden view as i was told
