“Excellent stay and good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

We opted to stay at Dubare Inn for one night (April 28, 2012), mostly because by the time we booked, other options were full.. After reading several negative reviews, we were really apprehensive of what to expect. However, we were in for a pleasant surprise.
We had booked two cottages (cottage 3 and 4) out of the four available. The location needs little review. It is situated on the bank of Cauvery, right across the Elephant camp, near the spot where we need to take the boat for the trip across. At night, the entire place is eerily quiet, with only the sounds of insects and the flowing water of Cauvery.
The rooms were spacious and adequately furnished. The windows are provided with wire meshes to prevent tiny insects from entering the rooms. Hot water is made available only between 7 and 9 in the morning, but I think you can get it at any time if you request the manager. Each cottage has a separate geyser, and each cottage has a separate satellite DTH connection. The blankets and towels were neat.
Room service is slow, but the food served is tasty. There is a restaurant in the front building, but it closes early in the evening after the last batch of tourists depart from the elephant camp. So dinner is room service only. For breakfast and lunch, the restaurant serves equally good food. The restaurant advertises a Dosa Camp, with several varieties of dosas available.
The highlight of our trip was the early morning jungle walk, with the manager Mr.Prashanth acting as the guide. Mr.Prashanth is a humble person, who tries to accommodate our requests in whatever way possible.
Overall, our stay at Dubare Inn was the highlight of our entire trip. I am surprised to see so many negative reviews about the same. I think Mr.Prashanth has made changes for the better, and that reflects in our positive view for this resort. I will recommend this resort to anyone, without an iota of doubt.

Room Tip: All 4 cottages are equally good, and have the same view of the river and the camp.

What a Terrible experience we had with Guyz @ Dubare Inn....First of all dont get fooled by looking at the pics that are uploaded by these guyz... we booked a cottage having 1 big and 1 small master double bed room and by the time we reached coorg things got changed and we were allocated with 1 small master single bed room..and when we quizzed as to why things got changed we found out that the manager allocated the room that we booked to other party as they have offered to pay more if the room was allocated to them......with this shocker we decided to go with 1 small master single bed room and to our surprise comes the second shocker..... the rooms were unkept,the bed sheet were dirty,the fan was not working and the washroom was even dirtier and the list goes on.....

so to put things in Simple Words about Dubare INN it would be " YOU SUCK...."

experience with Dubare INN made us to leave coorg with a slogan... "DUBARA Na Aana"....

Kindly do not opt for Dubare INN and get into Trouble....

Last but not the least... Mr.Prashanth(Manager at Dubare Inn) kindly learn how to treat people and how to provider a better service.... the kinda acts you did,left a bad impression on entire Coorg.

What a horribly maintained resort at a beautiful location. except for the service which was decent, the rooms were unkept. the sheets had a funny unkept smell and the bathrooms were DIRTY. I found hair on the toilet seat and realized that it has been a quite a while since the toilets were cleaned.
it is an excellent property with spacious rooms and toilets that are maintained really BAD. one plus is that there were clean towels for use.
The cost is about 3 grand for a cottage that was unclean which was shocking. A standard room at a 3 star hotel in any city would be about the same price and it will usually be tidy and well kept, but this was outrageous. NOT WORTH IT.

The location of the place is really cool. And the sound of the constant flow of water is soothing. If only they kept their rooms clean. The carpets are in a very bad shape, torn, dirty. I just dont get it, if you can't maintain a carpet, dont install it in the first place. The food, was unpredicatable, they would serve some really good ones and then they would have a mediocre ones as well, but nothing to classify as unpalatable. The dosas and idlys were awesome, some of the chicken dish during dinner was awesome as well, the fried rice was a let down, biriyani was ok. I would really want to see this place change. I would just go to the place again if they just removed the carpets. These guys charged us 3000 a night for the stay, for this I would expect a little more.

Room Tip: Choose the cottages, further away from the reception the better it gets.
