“Good, new and clean place for overnight stay near Jog Falls”
Reviewed 4 November 2016

Travelled during a diwali weekend. Stayed overnight at Mattuga. This place is about 15mins away from Jog Falls. Please note that this is not a resort (as mentioned in some reviews)

We had taken a room in the east bungalow. There are cottages as well but expensive. Rooms are spacious, neat. Bathroom fittings are all new and good. There is nothing much to do at this place but you can just laze around.

Food is ok but not that great. For those visiting this place, kindly carry enough snacks or eatables as the restaurant is available only during specific timings and do not expect to be served snacks etc.

Room Tip: If choosing a room then take it on the upper floor

We had a pleasant stay at Matthuga Resort (43 of us) on 15/16th October. The resort is located in a very lush green field with natural habitat. The food was top class and hospitality of the staff excellent. The rate is also within one's budget. Overall, it was a nice experience and we felt very homely. .

Room Tip: Cottages are well planned and surrounded with green cover

Visited jog falls this month asking with family members and had a excellent stay at Matthuga... Accommodation provided at West bungalow, rooms were good, food served was excellent (vegetarians who are very specific about pure veg will like the most because there is no other hotel. Overall, it's a very good place to enjoy the beauty of the nature....

We have recently visited JOG and booked Matthuga home stay. This is by no stretch of imagination a home stay. Its a Lodge. They don't offer even complimentary breakfast. We were 6 people and booked 2 rooms. They provided an extra mattress which we didn't ask for and charged 1500 extra for them. Very unprofessional guys. I wouldn't recommend this place.

The Food was just ok. Plain Veg routine food which we cook at our home. We expect something more when we are travelling. And charging for the food they provide is not at all worth.

I was here for a day on 9th Oct. Good decent cottage rooms with neat and clean bathrooms. Rooms are big and spacious. Surrounded by green vegetation's.
Good homely vegetarian food. Very close to Jog falls is an added advantage.
