Note: Though great location, neat and clean, Cost is 5 star, but few basic things I feel needs improvement, hence 3 star.
Very good location near Baba budana giri hills with great view and deep inside the coffee plantation.The bungalow is built during British period and opposite to the bungalow is the Coffee drying and processing place with a huge cemented ground for drying coffee beans.
Great place to relax and spend time watching birds and flowers in the garden. The library room has very old books which British people used to read. The food is great, very homely food.
They have the generator as a power backup option and they switch on when there is no power.(frequent power cuts were there). The geyser takes a while for heating and hence you need to wait a while to take bath. Hot water is not available at all times, you end up waiting.
There is a badminton court (cemented) opposite to the bungalow, but if it is windy then you may not be able to play. They have a fire place on the side of the bungalow near the fig tree.
The heritage room is slightly bigger than other rooms. Beds and Toilets were clean.
Cost wise, this accommodation is very high on cost, Breakfast is complimentary. There is no kettle and tea/coffee sachets provided in rooms. Towels are replaced on request.
Staff are very friendly and courteous. There is a common hall where there is a TV, sofa and chairs for relaxing and reading books. This common hall has the attached library room and a common toilet inside library room.
We could go for a trekking inside the coffee plantation which was like 7Kms up and down. This was really great and cool. We enjoyed the trekking. Kumar and Perumal from the bungalow accompanied us in this trekking.
Mobile signals are weak and no wifi. None of the rooms have good privacy as they all are opening to a common hall or dining hall or something.
