“Pathetic place to choose”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

I have been to Chitravana resort for a night stay. As soon as you enter the place it feels like you have come to forest to stay. First impression of the property is good. But hold on, this is definitely not an example of "first impression is the last impression". The property is not maintained at all. Swimming pool is in bad condition. Food quality is extremely poor and the service just make sure that your hunger dies before food is being served on the table.
The person who was on the reception was drunk and could not calculate the total bill. It took more than 40 mins for him to calculate the final bill. Moreover, they do not give you the proper bill mentioning clearly about the actual amount and the tax.
Its better to be at home and do something rather than wasting your money to stay in this place and cursing yourself while checking out.

I planned a last minute trip to Mysore. I drove straight from Bangalore. Being Dussera holidays, I was not able to get reservation in any in-city resort/hotel.
Chitravana is located beautifully on a green surroundings and not so far from city. The rooms are nice, spacious, AC, TV.
There is no Wifi, and room service is terrible. Even for cleaning the room you need to call them. Complementary breakfast is a fixed menu. And you will be surprised to see that if you order sandwitch/masala dosa or Puri bhaji, the masala is same in all :)
There is nothing else for recreation except a pair of broken badminton rackets (no shuttles) and a carom board.
If property is maintained well, it can be very good place for vacations.
Staff was even not very good at guiding for where to go and what to see...
Not impressed.

Room Tip: Place is only good for a good night sleep.

Situated on H D Kote Road the Resort is tucked behind a narrow approach from the main road. There are huts with lots of mosquitoes and insects. The food is not that great either. Other than the location the resort or the restaurant needs improvement in all phases. May be ideal for cukoo birds....

Chitravana resort is on the Nanjangud Road and is around 12 kms from the heart of the city. This resort offers a varied experience to a visitor. The resort is nestled inbetween thickly wooded junle of Bamboo and cedar. Being just next to the highway, one does not expect such a scenic green ambience. The resort holds some excellent cottages, though not as competetive in comfort or services. However it has an excellent restaurant with cubicles for seating thus ensuring adequate privacy amid green sorrounding and chirping of birds. Food is quite spicy and has chettinad style cuisines. Service is wonderful and one does not mind a little delay because of the ambience and privacy.

The service was good. A very nice place to be at leisure time.
Room is ok not very bad.
Location and amenities are too good.
Evening time would be the best to spend time, as there will be music and dance programme.
Food is ok for the price.

We went to have a weekend get together and this hotel looked perfect because of its location, but the sevice was not good and the cleancliness is not upto the mark. Need some improvement from the management.
Still its a decent hotel for weekend outing.
