I stayed in bhive for three days in August-2012. From the day 1 of my arrival ,the guest house owner balaji is tracking our status with care. Care taker Arun is the person to be appraised.the food is awesome and home prepared one,especially chicken curry is simply super.One example incident-our stay completed by third day morning 8'o clock and we vacated the guest house and our return bus to chennai is at 7'o clock evening. We planned for sightseeing whole day followed by journey. Surprisingly, our sightseeing completed by 3'o clock and there is no place for us to refresh before journey. Balaji (owner) called us himself to ask about return journey and requested himself to come and stay over there till our return bus timing. And Arun arranged food for us for the return journey too. All in all ,I can recommend this place for all the people who loves to be at home even they are far away from it. Terrace rooms are most preferred ones and you can enjoy your dinner and breakfast with very good view of kodaikanal. A memorable visit!!!!!!!

Last month i was there in Kodaikanal for two nights, stayed in B's hive. It was such a nice place to get in. And very nice hospitality.

Excellent view from the terrace. Care taker was good and helpful.

Thanks to Mr.Balaji for his guidance.

Surely whenever i am in Kodaikanl will stay only in his B's hive.

We, as a group of friends, occupied 2 rooms in B's Hive Kodai. Candidly, it was a spectacular place to stay in Kodai. Located in the heart of the town, its easy for tourists to reach most of the attractions such as the lake,coakers walk etc which are near by within a 2km radius. I'd have to thank Mr. Gautham Balaji, the MD for his hospitality and the caretaker Mr. Arun who could literally deliver us everything under the sun(in Kodai). The food was good. The rooms were squeaky clean. Expect a splendid view from the patio, or sit in the lawn relaxed. Its a homely Indian lodging and the guests are excellently taken care off, the caretaker is at your service all the time, whenever you need him. Well, the place doesn't have a swimming pool, really never mind those, who would be needing it in Kodai's climate? The owner is honest and lets you have a glimpse of what to expect in B's hive and the place is perfectly suitable for any type of tourist be it couples, family or friends. And finally, credits are due for Mr. Arun who, despite the rains, was at our service any time, providing us food or getting medicine for my friend. B's hive made our trip memorable and really worth the visit and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Kodaikanal.
