April 2008
This is a Goverment hotel built many years ago.
The front rooms 101, 102, 126 & 127 are the best as they have GREAT views over the bay.
The rooms were clean, the food pretty good and the drinks very cheap.
The travel agent in the hotel reception organized all our trips... it is wise to find out which places you wish to visit before you get there.
This hotel is set outside the squalor of Port Blair and there is a lot of bird life in the early mornings.
We decided to use the laundry service and there was enough time to get our laundry before we left... wrong! We think they forgot but we did get it back late on the last night... still hot from the ironing!

  • Liked — A cut above the rest on an island not frequented by lots of Western visitors
  • Disliked — The Internet that was listed as an available service... but didn't exist

Stayed just one night here, in transit between Havelock and Chennai.

For a government place, this is really well run – lots of varnish on the wood, pretty clean, and plenty of hot water. Beds reasonably comfortable. Sheets clean but worn.

Friendly service, pleasant dinner, but breakfast was not the greatest.

Perfectly OK for a short stay, but we would not have wanted to stay more than a couple of nights.

We stayed at Megapode Nest for 3 nights in Dec 07 and had an overall pleasant stay.
Although the buffet meals is nothing much to write home about, their cottages (costed us Rs 3,000 per night including breakfast only in Dec 07) offers probably the best view.
The bamboo cottages are nice and spacy, but the toilet is cramped. Service is OK. The souvenir shop could do with better collection of T shirts and other local handicrafts. Often the credit card swipe machine doesn't work, so be prepared to pay cash.

  • Liked — Location, cottage size
  • Disliked — Buffet spread

Hotel Megapode nest was very well maintained placd with very courteous staff.

We stayed in a beautiful bamboo cottage. It was quite reasonable also. Costed us Rs. 1,500 per day with breakfast and dinner included. You can look at the pictures to see the real beauty.
