“Had a Nice Stay!!!”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

We had been there in the month of August, sorry for writing the review so late...It was a nice short stay ...enjoyed the beautiful view from B's Hive...rooms are comfortable & really within budget..Both Balaji(Manager) & Mathew(Caretaker) do well ensuring the comfort & requirements...Food provided by Mathew ( not prepared there though) was simply amazing!!!...Only drawback is that its little far from city center, Only thing that bothered me was the travel arrangement which was little expensive ......overall it was a nice time spend there...would like to visit there again ......Main reason: Mathew & Balaji :)..

Overall it was wonderful staying in B's hive. We went there to celebrate our marriage anniversary and we felt we cannot find a better place. This home-stay is located in a residential area. we stayed in the first floor . It has a spacious and valley view sit out. I still remember the moonlight dinner we had in the sit-out . The service was superb . The rooms are very well maintained. A very smooth check-in and check-out .... thanks to Mathew(caretaker). The owner Balaji sir took personal attention on every visitor which we really liked ...Thanks to Balaji sir and a special thanks to Jeyashree .

We took all the four rooms when we, a whole family of 10 members, visited Kodai . The valley view from the rooms was very good and the room service was far better than we expected. This place is indeed VFM, worth the entire money you spend. We had the property to our exclusivity and the three days stay was very pleasant. Though there is no restaurant you will get food arranged from outside at very low prices which is wholesome and the simple diet is suitable for all ages.The cleanliness is above average and could be improved a little more. The access to the property is the only concern which we hope Mr Balaji will improve in due course since the reachability of the rooms will be bit tedious for elderly people. No false promises regarding the place, access and the availability of variety of food and other services which should be highly appreciated. A detailed notes on the road map together with the photographs of the rooms beforehand is quite handy. A highly recommended place for family people.

Room Tip: The three out of four rooms have direct views from the rooms and the mezzanine floor room is having...

We stayed at B's Hive cottage in the 3rd week of July 2011. We booked two rooms on the terrace with a bolcony. It had a breathtaking view of the valley. Caretaker Mathew and owner Balaji were very helpful. Mr. Balaji was very honest , he sent us the photos of the cottage as well as the location and road before making the booking. They arranged us a cab for roaming in Kodaikanal for twodays with a friendly driver Shiva.This would be perfect choice for those who look for a home like accommodation.

I would definitely recomend the travellers to consider this cottage for your stay.

B's Hive in Kodaikanal is located in a quiet seclusive area 5 to 10 minutes drive to the lake and restaurants and places of interest. The rooms are clean and service is good. Thanks to Mathew the friendly caretaker and the owner, Mr. Balaji kind hospitality. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful breath taking guest house to anyone.

B's Hive is situated a little away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist locations. It offers a very peaceful stay amongst calm Kodai residential surroundings. Mr. Balaji's personal touch made our stay even warmer!

A great homestay with a courteous and forthright owner and an efficient caretaker.
Recommend for family stays.

Room Tip: The view from the terrace rooms is amazing!
