This is the first & only State Tourism property I ever stayed. The first time we visited (approx. 4 years back) I was awstruck by its natural beauty! C'mon! How often do you find lush green & river flowing barely 2 minutes off the State Highway!!!! The water level was quite high & so was the sound of the flowing water! Sadly enough we noticed the water level decreasing on our next several visits!
Contrary to my apprehension I found the rooms pretty well done & maintained considering the tariff! The room was in the main building. In our next visits we discovered that the rooms in other building/cottage are truly terrible! So, from then onwards we insisted on getting a room in the main building.
Now, let's come to FOOD. They can be best described as edible. Some are good enough though. I like their Upma. Last time we spent hours binging on their Chicken 65 washed down with Beer, watching the river flow & sunrays seeping through the branches of the tree on our shoulders! However, the way food & beverages (specially coffee/tea) are served is quite disappointing & unappetising :( Once I had the urge to throw their coffee flask to the river!!!!
What can I say about service! We do not understand Kannada & the serving staffs do not understand any other language! Some are polite & eager to serve & some are not. But we never faced any disaster as of now.
Its location is it's biggest advantage- barely 2-3 hours from Bangalore, on the banks of Cauvery & just off the highway.
Will I go their again? Oh yes! I can go their every weekend eat, drink, sleep & come back refreshed for the rest of the week.
