Agraharam Cottages
Ranked #2 of 2 Thirunelly B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 October 2013

I would not recommend this one to anyone
>Pros
+Good Mattress, has a sound sleep.
>Cons
-Worst Management
-Mediocre or I would say below average food quality and insane pricing.
-Worst response from room service. Poor turn-around from the staff.
-Trust me., they gave us a cottage with no key to lock it.. Neither did they compromise on the bills for the inconvenience caused.
-Never take the Night Safari service.. Night safari is free in most other places. Hoping we get the same here we went for it and later learned they charge 1200/- for it. And you don't even expect to see a chicken.

PS: Just because you earn, it doesn't mean you can throw the money into garbage bin.

We stayed at Himagiri Homes in one of the suites during the period 3rd Oct, 2013 to 4th Oct, 2013. Our purpose was visit to the Thirunelly temple. The resort is placed at the perfect location in the lap of nature. I would recommend this to people who want to relax. The resort rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. The location is also amazing in between thick vegetation. Though my trip was too short, I would definitely want to spend 3 to 4 nights at this resort during my next visit.

Room Tip: Do go in for the Suite

This review would be helpful for those who want to visit this area of Waynand during Monsoon. We wanted to go to some place where we could just relax and away from city crowd. So end up with Agraharam Cottages. It was mixed felling. Property is good but not maintained may be because of low session. Children's play are was not at all maintained and usable. They had recreation center but TT room was big enough just to fit table,You can't play there. Hospitality and Staff was too good and too helpful. Though room service was too slow. Irrespective you order dinner/lunch or Tea it will take same time which is around an hour.
Food is costly, though because of low session they charged 250 for buffet but Ala-carte was still costly. I think you have no option and they know that which is real reason of high prices.
Cottage is bit small but not too small and a family of 3. Outside sitting are is very small which I did't like. Staff was so helpful and they took us for a walk till a nearby stream. Passing through paddy fields was an experience in itself.
Overall property is very green and have very good view. Very close to Thirunelly temple is another advantage. On the back side of this resort KTDC Tamarind is located. If you want to try you can have food there as well. We tried one dinner there and it was extremely good. It was not very cheap compare of Agraharam as buffet there costed us 500 but dinner in Tamarind costed 400.
This part of Waynand is extremely beautiful and green. We knew that Kurva Island is closed during Monsoons but even then we end up driving till Kurva as it goes through thick forest where you can spot some wildlife (if you are lucky). One day trip to Irupu Falls, was memorable, it was one of the best falls I have ever visited where you can go till fall and take a bath.
If going in low session don't expect too much but if same thing happens during peak session then that would definitely not be acceptable.

Room Tip: All rooms/Cottages are kind of same. Try to select rooms which are towards KTDC Tamarind as they hav...

Good location be cause you can see mountains near by.
The cottages is small but also good.
The food is only average but eatable. You have to because in the jungle you have no option to eat out.
We felt it was very rude and goonda management. Not friendly. No goodmorning nothing. Always had a stern face watching us as though we some kind of anti social elements. Other guests were openly drinking liqor in the resort common area and that gave us not so good feeling. The price is also very expensive too.
During check out also we had trouble and the bill was wrong 2 times, but finally they agreed the mistake. Not a good option, go only for mountain view. It is also near temple.

I stayed in this hotel twice. Its small resort by the staffs were excellent. The food was very good and they take really good care of the guest. The owner was not there but he called and made sure that the stay was comfortable. Not much activity to do there though but the temple is nearby and the view from there is lovely
