“SIMPLE PLACE - As name suggests!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

If you are a big group & have fun things to do as a group - you will enjoy this place. If you are a family or couple or individual expecting a great place or fabulous views & settings, you will be disappointed. Service is average - a bit too slow. Things are not maintained up to standards expected. Pool could be kept cleaner. If bigger groups arrive by vans, it can get noisy.
Food was decent with Indian choices. Alcohol is not served.
If you love good coorg settings & views of hills, valleys & rivers, opt for an alternate choice.

Room Tip: Select cottages around the pool

I and my wife with my son and mother in law went for summer vacation to coorg or kodagu in karnataka from chennai. On route we stayed at mysore for one day and visited krs dam and chamundi hills. Roads on route were mostly great. But the weather was horrible and hotter than chennai. Hence coorg is not an ideal hill station for summer holidays or in the month of may. But the resort we stayed was better and were upto our expectations. Only drawback is food which was very spicy not only here but everywhere else in coorg. Madikeri was slightly cooler than kushal nagar and had one good south indian hotel Atithi were lunch was ok. Talacauveri was the coolest and best of all in coorg. Cauvery Nishargadhama offers best family outing like rafting and boating. Dubare elephant camp is the better choice for kids time pass. Abbi falls can only be seen. Raja seat is nice and picturesque. Pious people can visit Omkareswara temple.

We stayed here from 2 june to 4th june, and felt very much happy. Rooms were spacious. Lush greenery around and coconut, and mango trees. There is a very nice kids play area and a well maintained swimming pool. We reached the place on 2 June afternoon, and were welcomed and check in process was very smooth. Mr. Swaroop, the manager helped me to set up wifi in my mobile and helped to pass the voucher whose printout I did not have. Wifi is an added facility here. We had a blast in the swimming pool and kids thoroughly enjoyed there. Also they loved the playground and we could not figure out how the time passed. Breakfast is complementary and was nice both days. We had dinner one night and it was OK and can be definitely improved.
Mr. Praveen, another manager was friendly and energetic and felt like meeting someone whom I knew earlier. Another lady officer was also nice (bad I dont remember her name).
One improvement is there needs to be a good drinking water facility and we should not end up buying those costly bisleris (they charge 35 for a bottle worth 15!) and cause damage to environment.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you very much for choosing Stay Simple Raj Gardenia and also for sparing time to share your experience with the TripAdvisor community. We are glad to note those praising words about our resort.

I have conveyed your gracious comments to the entire team, for whom it has been a tremendous source of inspiration.

Potable water in a hilly and country area is not well appreciated by most of our esteemed guests and hence we do have provision for bottled water. However, we appreciate you bringing to our notice alternative arrangements that can be considered.

The team and I thank you once again for your time and look forward to welcoming you back.

Best regards..

We stayed at this Hotel/resort for two days.The surroundings in side the resort are very good with well maintained swimming pool.Rooms are OK. Food quality was good though with restricted menu.Staff was supportive and approachable. Billiards table is available on CHARGEABLE basis.

Room Tip: Corner suites are better.Standard Rooms are strictly OK.

Very dirty, absolutely no maintenance. The bedsheets were dirty and had stains. Power kept going off and the backup took sometime to power on. We checking in late and asked for curd rice, this was served to the room without being covered. Horrible service, dirty bathrooms. Definitely not worth the price they charge you.
