Stay @ Matthuga
Ranked #2 of 2 Talavata B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2016

- Best place to stay if you are visiting Jog Falls.
- A good place to sit back and relax.
- Cottages are good, well maintained, huge and with a nice balcony.
- A good neat swimming pool available. (had not used it though) - as the stay was only for a night.
- Food was just about average. Unlimited - but pure vegetarian. But the spread and the quality could have been better.
- Though the cottage is big - has a double bed (two single beds attached to make it one) and another bed near the door - the mattress of the third bed is very very bad and is rock hard. Pillows are equally bad.

Room Tip: Stay in the Cottages. Don't expect any lavish spread. No good restaurants nearby.

The cottages are clean and the food is nice. The new cottages are extremely spacious and good enough to accommodate 8 - 10 people each. Mr.Subramanian, the care taker, and other staff have been extremely warm and cordial. Would recommend this highly for people looking for a budget friendly stay at Jog falls.

Stay location is too good with surrounded by farm. more than hotel, its like home stay. room service was also nice.
we get vegetarian food only there, with very good quality. Jog falls is hardly 10mins drive from there.
Swimming pool was getting ready when we visited there.

Room Tip: rooms on first floor has good views.

When we stay in places like this, the looking forward is for Authentic food. we went there in monsoon to enjoy the village when it rains. The food was just ok, nothing spectacular. The rooms were large and there was hot water for sure. Probably the time we visited was not good as there was huge contruction happening, more rooms, pool etc etc and we never met the host as well. Not so impressed end of the day. Felt like a nice lodge withotu any life. There was trash outside the rooms - beer covers, cig packets etc etc.

The resort is on large plantation/farm with 10 mins drive from Jog falls. When we visited there with family, we took 2 rooms so you get the entire cottage with good common play area to yourself.

Narahari is the owner who is very helpful. Restaurant is only veg but the food was just wonderful. They brought food to the room for my 2 year old kid.

Must visit in the rainy season.

Room Tip: Pick a cottage for privacy
