I stayed here with my family - me, my wife and 2 children (2 and 5 years old) in early May 2013. I just stayed for a night in the ground floor. What impressed me most of the hospitality - we requested an early checkin and were granted the same based on availability of other rooms. We were put up for 3-4 hours in a room in the first floor and then moved to the room we booked. The care taker Arun is greatly helpful - he brought us umbrellas when we were back from sightseeing and it was raining heavily. He is always there to help. The home cooked food available is a great plus for families. I had no problems with the Geyser/hot water and it was available all time

Suggestions to those who order food: As Balaji the owner suggests, there is only one care taker, so it is better that the lunch/dinner menu is discussed and planned with Arun well in advance.

Balaji also hooked me to a taxi driver (Mubarak) and I planned my sightseeing with him. His rates were lower than the official rates. Overall, it was a great experience staying here and a very good value for money.

I stayed here with my family during the 1st week of May' 13 for 3 nights/days.We chose Superior Room with Terrace and I was so glad for having chosen B'hive as it is located in such a fantastic location and provides an amazing view of the Mountains covered in Clouds.

The room size was good enough for a family of four.The toilet was very clean though I don't feel the same about the bed sheet,pillow cover and blanket which needs replacement.Water was available 24hrs a day .If you run out of water just give a call to Arun and he will switch on the motor immediately.

Arun,the Care taker came across as a very kind and helpful person.We loved the food served by Arun.But ensure that you place the order atleast two to three hours before .The food quality was very good and we really enjoyed it.Guests may have to bear with Arun if there is any delay on his part in serving food or fulfilling any of their requirements on time after all he is the sole caretaker and we never felt bad whenever the food was served late as it allowed as to go more hungry and consume more of his lovely home made food.

Arun arranged a cab for sight seeing and the Cab driver Prem was very pleasant and helpful.The cab was very clean and well maintained by the driver.He is one of the best drivers I have ever come across .

Myself and my family thought that 3 days was a short period and we have plans to visit Kodai again during off season and are looking to stay for atleast a week and our choice for stay is B'hive's .

Mr.Balaji do convey my regards to Arun and Prem.

Wonderful experience at B's Hive Cottage. I booked the complete cottage for my family and my total family felt as though we were staying at our own house. Cottage was so Calm and clean. Enjoy the chillness sitting outside the room and have your food on the open space served by the care taker. The care taker Mr.Arun and his brother Mr.Anand were so humble enough and served us whatever we requested. Their tiffin was so good. Wonderful experience and damn sure will visit Kodaikanal again. Thanks to Mr.Balaji and the care takers.

One of My friend adviced, whatever happens,stay in this hotel. Believe me! I rescheduled my whole trip just to get into this hotel! The owner, Mr.Balaji, helped us as far as possible in bookings and once we got down in kodai, we were about to be robbed by a travel agent professionally, then comes Mr.Prem. the driver of cottage. He took us every place at very affordable rates and the journey was in private car which was well maintained.

About the cottage, when I reached cottage and spent an evening there, came to know why my friend said like that. The caretaker/manager Mr.Arun who has a Broad, Soothing smile on his face always, was very caring and it was pleasure for us to call him again n again for requesting things, he didn't lost smile once! We checked 2rooms in 2 days(mezzanine,terrace supreme) both were spectacular with neat rooms and pleasant smelling bathrooms , the view from terrace was simply awesome! If u got lucky, you'll be In between clouds!!

The Homemade food was very very good and it was worth the money spent on it. Taste- fantastic price- insanely cheaper than rest of kodi kanal!

I will definitely recommend the hotel, homely food and its travel desk for everyone who is going to kodi kanal, as those 3 things made my trip memorable.

Room Tip: EVery room is enjoyable. If less than three people, mezzanine. Less than 5 then terrace supreme unless u like things congested.
