Sad that my rating went to a 3 star from a potential 4-5 star and the only reason is the unpleasant check-in experience. Previous day I had specifically asked when I can come since I had a large group (>10) and the manager of this place specifically said by 11:30. We go at 12:00.. tired and wanting to rest for some time since there were 4 aged people in the group. Lo and behold, to our surprise the 'manager' with whom we spoke doesn't live there and manages everything over the phone and does a bad job with it. The cooks/helpers who are now the new managers weren't expecting us and looked surprised. The room that we were supposed to be given was not free..reason.. the guests have gone to the falls and not come back yet!! (12 pm). Called the remote manager.. no help. It took almost 2 hours to finally get our room. I must confess our bad experience ended there. Rooms were basic.. what do u expect.. it is the jungle. What a location!! Right next to the entrance, surrounded by coffee plantations, raining.. simply unbelievable. Service was fantastic, food was great and the big room was really big. Since it was monsoons we didn't get hot water in 2 of the bath rooms but who cares? There was one witha geyser. Simply go for this place if u want a great experience in the middle of the jungle, right next to the falls area. You will have a great time. It has good outdoor activities as well.

Travelling has been my passion from long. I just need a long weekend and an affordable destination to head to. Likewise, I have headed for a short trip recently to Kutta seeking for some wildlife and a complete rest. And I luckily came across the Yamini Greens - Sherlock's Retreat property. It's a home stay cum resort located amidst the beautiful greeneries very near to Nagahole Wildlife Sanctuary. The resort is ideal for family gateways, outing with dear friends and even for the corporate team building activities. It gives immense opportunities of indoor/ outdoor games, coffee plantation trail, wildlife safaris and not-so-hectic excursions. I was fortunate to get my stay in Room No. 06 on the second floor and the best experience was the view of the lush green mountain ranges in a stone-throw distance. I cannot miss the chance to thank Mr. Cliford, Mr, Ganesh, Mr. Arun and Mr. Puneet - the heart and soul of the property and it will be very difficult to express their hard-work to make our stay an amazing one. The food is delicious and you ask for anything, the above mentioned personnel try their best to provide it to you. My sincere gratitude to Sherlock's entire management for their effort to make our stay a memorable one. I will definitely come back here soooooonnn.

An amazing place located close to famous Irupu Falls. This beautiful resort/home stay has everything that you need on a quaint holiday. 8 acres of greenery and and serene nature. You feel refreshed and re energized. The resort manager and staff are very courteous and cook excellent food. Mr. Clifford was an excellent host and got us everything that we needed. They also have Ducks, Emu and Turkey in their bird collection. Trek to the top of the plantation, its a good work out.

My friends and I, like most people, started scrambling in search of good resorts for a quick getaway for the New Year's. That's when we stumbled upon Yamini Green, Coorg. After speaking to Rashmee (Owner) over the phone, who was very helpful and responsive, we made our decision and booked the place. The place is located in the forest range of Nargarhole National Park, some 230Kms away from Bangalore. One has to drive around 40-45Kms within the Nagarhole National Park to reach the place and this drive was absolutely blissful. We spotted a few Langoors, Wild boars and lots and lots of deers. After reaching Kutta, Yamini Green is only about 8-10 Kms away. The place is not at all difficult to find if you have Google maps on. Once we reached the place, we were pleasantly surprised - the sereneness of the locality, cleanliness of the place, big dining area and even bigger play area with a lot of sports equipment - exceeded our expectations. The staff welcomed us and guided to our cottages which were clean and well maintained. For the night of New Year’s Mr.Clifford’s staff had prepared delicious dinner with a lot of varieties. There was music and a big bon fire for all the guests to enjoy, mingle and chat. The guests looked happy and seemed to enjoy the very chilled weather amidst the nature. We rang in the New year with the calmness and satisfaction that would not have been possible in the city - all thanks to this wonderful place. Iruppu falls is just stones throw away from Yamini green. So if you are going here, its not something you would want to miss. (Opens at 8AM, Closes at 5:30 PM). There are also 2 slots for Safari in the Nagarahole National Park - one’s at 8AM and another at 3PM. I would suggest you to prebook your slots and preferably go for the 6AM slot. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely recommend this place to everyone and I plan to visit this place again soon.

It was a big let down. We chose the wrong place and after travelling a really long distance to reach this place, we were too tired to even react to the rooms offered at three star hotel rates. Basically lodge facilities are given at expensive rates. Forget having mobile coverage, the rooms dont even have an intercom or room service. For Rs 4000 per day, the rooms had a creaky bed with hard mattress, one musty cupboard and a very small wall stand that has to be passed as a dressing table. There was no side table, no teapoy, no chairs and the rooms of my friends did not even have a cupboard. I dont want to even comment on the bathroom and the cleanliness of the same. We have stayed in much better hotels with better room facilities for lesser rates and that too in better scenic locations. However the only positive thing is the food. The cooks in the kitchen basically manage the place and fortunately they gave good service. Also the waterfalls close by is another reprieve. There are no shops for 8 kms. I would not recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Coorg.

Sherlocks Retreat is truly an amazing holiday experience. The location is serene, and its a perfect place for a group or family holiday. The experience is akin family holidays in the 1970's where families and friends bond together, no fancy frills, clean , well managed rooms, sports, and trekking trails. The food is fresh and made to your liking. The staff is super efficient and friendly. We stayed here for 3 nights and were a group of childhood friends. Just the perfect place to relax, go back to cherished memories and soak in the wonderful, peaceful surroundings.

Does Sherlock retreat have the best location? The best view? The best quality? Alas - This review will not answer any of those important questions.I can only say that it is a lovely place to stay - out of the way with a lovely drive to it. We found ourselves in Coorg on a very busy Diwali weekend, and had to find a place to stay. Sherlock was the only affordable option we could find on short notice, and we took it. The drive from the beginning of Coorg (from the karnataka side) is quite long - more than 2 hours, and it seems closer to Wynad than to Karnataka. We finally reached there very late after a surrealistic drive - there are very large trees covered in lichen and vines in a forested area, and many kutcha roads to cross before you reach it - making it all the more exciting. The place consists of many cottage style rooms. They have a very good vibe. Our cottage/room had two rooms with poster beds- very convenient if you have more than 2 people. Morning brings fresh cool mountain air, and the village sounds (rooster crowing, birds chirping etc) with it. We find that the cottages open on to a large courtyard, there is a mountain behind the resort which you can climb, there is an emu, a turkey and lots of ducks on a pond. Food is delicious and staff extremely courteous. A must stay. Tip - stay for at least 2 days to get a feel for the place.

Had been to yamini greens on recommendation of my friend during long weekend of Aug, the homestay is renovated as I was told since a new company from Bangalore which runs Sherlock Pubs has taken over and have rebranded as Sherlock retreat. though the homestay was full we had great service from the staff who are very courteous and proactive, unlike many homestay I have visited sherlock retreat has a proper dinning hall an activity area and well maintend rooms and the best part is their homley food. we also had amazing time at irrpu falls which is just next to the homestay. I wish to thank Sherlock team for giveing us such an memorable holiday and yes forgot to add the wonderful experience of coffee plantation trek which was simply amazing. All the best and I will sulry recommend Sherlock retreat to all my friends.
