“Got cheated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2010

It was not a great outing, activities mentioned in the websites hardly exists, swimming pool which is shown in the website is probably from some other places, its not at all as its shown in the pictures, it has got lot of broken tiles and no water in it. when we asked them to fill the water in the pool, they started but it was not even half filled by the time we checked out from the place. The mention of bar-be-que was a joke for us, it never existed. the even camp fire was a fire to pile of wood on the pathway/entrance near the gate where their vehicles are parked. Food was bad and way too spicy, definite to get a heart burn. To add to it when we went to have dinner at 10pm, there wasn't any curries left when asked they gave us some plain grated carrot. The meaning of trekking for them is probably walk in the 400 acres of coffee plantation. The alcohol charges are sky high, 70-80% more on the MRP. Coming to other outdoor activities is carom where the board was in a bad condition. shuttle badminton had no court at all, was supposed to be played in the coffee beans processing area.

Its about 285 KM from Bangalore. Road is rough in parts. You have to park you car below at a hutment in the reserve forest and take the hotel jeep up for the last 5/7 KM. Backbreaking!

The view is fantastic once you are up there though. Its a home stay and not a resort at all. Very basic. Hot and cold water works but little else. The caretakers Mamta and gang do their best and rustle up good south Indian food.

Pool is broken down paddle pond and usually never has water in it. They suggest treks. Go prepared as the same can be rough. Our group could not reach the waterfall as the jungle track was closed owing to a land slide. We all had huge amount of leach bite and nothing else to show for it.

They write of Tex Woods as a resort but it nothing but a homestay with a swimming pool.We have stayed at homestays before and the food here was bad compared any other homestay.The bathrooms are dark and very small.The view from Tex woods is really good but most of the rooms have no views at all! The complimentary bar-b-q they offered us was a joke .Chikamagalur is wonderful place to go otherwise.

Very Nice place to stay, with nice people & very hospitable, the rooms & bathrooms should be cleaned on a daily basis which did not happen during our stay. The olnly advise to people is to fill up their fuel tanks at chikmagalur before going to TEXWOODS.
The food was very very homly & a Special mention to Mamta & Satya - They are always smiling & willing to do their bit. Thanks

  • Liked — Good Enviorment, No mosquitoes
  • Disliked — Should pay more attention on the cleanliness
