Reviewed 2 June 2012

we stay 3 night 1st night in Nicobar cottage and rest 2 night in bamboo cottage, like the 2nd one comparability... rooms, location view are really good but service and food are not good at all...
service are like typical government servant attitude, on arrival we found our cottage washroom dirty and used, and have to wait 30 min to get that cleaned... food quality is not good, but cottages are really well placed, spacious and well designed but need to maintain...

Room Tip: have food outside.... and bamboo cottages are better then Nicobari cottage as per my choice...

We stayed in Hotel Megapode for two days.The rooms are neat and clean and ambience is relaxing.Hotel is located on a hillock ,one gets a commanding view of harbour and ocean all around.Located little away from city, transport is must.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room facing the harbour

We stayed in both a standard and deluxe room. Although the rooms are dated, they are kept clean and are spacious. The deluxe rooms were the best deal with views over the harbour, an outdoor sitting area and fridge. The standard rooms were OK: they are a bit smaller, but the major downside is not having the outdoor sitting area with the great harbour views. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. They would prepare food for my kids before the set dinner times because they were usually too tired to eat by then.The breakfast was OK (usually one Indian option, plus cereals and eggs). The lunch buffet was kept to a few items and was tasty and fresh. When we visited in May the hotel was very busy. We tried booking a cottage but they were all booked out weeks in advance.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are better value than standard rooms

I stayed in Nicobari Cottage at Megapode Nest for just a day and ended up regretting the short duration of the stay. The cottage is quite spacious with a visiting area separated from the sleeping space by a curtain. The presence of a full sized refrigerator adds to the convenience at your disposal. The view from the balcony is as amazing as you would ever get and the feel of enjoying a drink while sitting on the rocking chair there on a pleasant evening is just priceless!!!
However the service here could be a bit erratic as it could take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour to get a bottle of coke delivered to your room. The bar timings are bit inconvenient and ice cubes are delivered just enough for a drink!!! The quality of food is pretty decent though and you get buffet for a reasonable price. Here also, if you are late by 5 mins for the meal timings, you can't order A la carte and would have to make do with whatever is available in buffet.
Overall, I would like to recommend this place highly for its location and brilliant views from the balcony.

Room Tip: Nicobari Cottages might be a bit heavy on your budget but they are worth every extra penny paid!!!
