    I had visited on March 31st and April 1st for 2 days at your estate. It was a great stay we had. I and 3 more friends were there at your estate and we enjoyed all the activities that were available there - including the shuttle court, and a friendly German shepherd Blackie with whom I enjoyed playing with (I myself have a dog at home). The food was tasty and was served to perfection. Service was also prompt. The staff were very courteous and happy to help with whatever we required. The best part about the staff was that they would all work with a smile on their faces and cheerfully attend to every request of ours, no matter how small. Special thanks to Mr. Asif Ali who was the manager in charge when we stayed. He managed our stay to perfection. He was in fact very knowledgeable and told us quite a few things about living in the estate, the lifecycle of the coffee crops, and took us on a 1 hour morning walk through the estate. When we were wondering about which places to visit during the day, he was even kind enough to suggest us Mullayanagiri peak (which we never had any plan of visiting but later enjoyed driving up the peak in our car). As far as the rooms and the attached baths are concerned, they were flawless and all the bed linen were spotless white. This goes a long way in showing the commitment towards cleanliness. I didn't find anything to complain about, except for the approach road from the main road highway to the estate house. I drove in my Hyundai Accent which is quite a low car and had to watch that my car bottom didn't get scraped on the rough, stone road. I expect this will be fixed in a short while since the resort seemed to be fairly new when we went. Overall, I think this resort is offering excellent value for money for the tariff that they are charging and what they are providing, compared to other homestays in Chikmagalur. I would definitely like to visit here again when I come to Chikmagalur next

    I had my parents over for the first time in Bangalore and they told that they wanted to see coffee plantations. So I decided to take turn to Chikmagalur. I decided that the best idea would be to stay in coffee estate itself...I came across tan wood homestay and setting the reviews I booked it. I must say that the fresh entry through the coffee plantations made it worth the money. And the nice cottages with high roofs and glass windows were the cherry on the cake. The care taker Lokesh and his wife cooked very homely and tasty food with less oil and spices ( as requested). He also arranged for bonfire at night and I could play ludo with my parents after ages ... Making us go back to our childhood n enjoying the stay and fresh air... I thank Asif and his friend from heart as he arranged for a cake at the last moment request for my father's birthday. Morning tea in the fresh air gave our day a fresh start. I would also mention Tiger, the cute n sweet dog who gives the perfect finish to the homestay. Neat, well maintained cottages with green everywhere made it a perfect little trip for us.

    Heaven on Earth We heard about Tan Woods through a common friend, who suggested that we take a weekend break over here. Right from the first call, we made to Mr. Deepak, we felt the speciality of this place, but once we checked in we were overawed by the sheer unspoilt natural beauty of this place. A walk in the morning, with delightful bird chirp (music), is sure to provide an awesome unwind and make one forget yourself. The visit to the coffee estate was fantastic, with useful titbits thrown by Mr. Ali on coffee plant cultivation. One could make out that he actually treats the plants like his own children. Food served over here is of very high quality and I am grateful to the trio of Chefs there. On the whole, I highly recommend this place for a family holiday.

    A peaceful, relaxing and tranquil getaway... True to its name, The Hidden Valley, is a no frills attached, peaceful and tranquil getaway, which offers you a very refreshing experience. We were a bunch of friends who checked in and stayed for a couple of days and had a very memorable stay. The property has its own pond, which adds to the rustic beauty of the place, along with the coffee plantation and lots of hens, geese etc that add to the beauty. The food is very homely and delightful. There is a lovely deck just below the main building and just above the pond, where they organise a barbecue in the evening along with music to let yourself unwind and have a relaxing evening. I personally look forward to going there again and again. A fabulous place in every sense!

    Pleasant and quiet homestay We had a pleasant stay in the Tan Woods homestay. However, it was kind of boring, when it rains in the evening without much reading material. I would request the management to get rid of the Television set and have only books and indoor games to play for children. Have a small library with books, novels -Fiction and Non-fiction for guests to read during rainy times and odd hours. Also please don't suggest to guests for dangerous places like Mulayanagiri hills, which are absolutely unsafe for families and children. These places are highly difficult to travel via any vehicle and definitely not enjoyable.

    We stayed in the rooms away from the main house and it was perfect. The spread of Malnad food was very good & tasty. The staff were very courteous and accommodating. Ali took good care of us. I felt like I was on a relaxing summer holiday reminiscent of my school days - barbeque, badminton & board games!:) I would definitely come back here again!
