This November we are planning a 3-4 day trip to Mysore/Coorg. I am looking for suggestions on places to stay in Madikeri/Coorg vicinity. Thanks.

Orange county at siddapur is the most expensive in coorg(RS6500 to RS10000)...you have many other options .....Hill town and coorg international are the better hotels in madikeri.... or you can stay at the many plantation homestays.

Last year in December my wife and I stayed at the Coorg International and found it to be very reasonable an dthe staff very pleasant I think the 3 night stay with breakfast and dinner cakme to INR 9000
I think we dealt with someone by the name of prakash

I looked at an some old e-mail confirmations and came up with the following

Hotel Coorg Internatonal
E- mail: iatprakash@dishnetdsl.net ot iatblr@eth.net

We also stayed for several nights at the Vicroy in Mysore and found them to be very pleasant, easy to deal with and helpful in making other arrangements. (car and driver) The rate last year in Late November thatwe paid for 5 nights was INR 8403.00
We dealt with Reetha who was wonderful.
viceroymys@touchtelindia.net

I have no connection or financial interest with either hotel
Have a great trip.

Hi Prasad,

I have been to Coorg 2 times and both the times, is stayed in Home stay accomodations.

Kutta, south Kodagu - Chilligere Estate - close to Nagarhole, Wyanad national parks, Tirunelli temple, Irpu falls.

Alath Cad Estate - close to Kushalnagar, Harangi dam, Cauvery Nisargadhama, dubare elephant camp and 40 kms from Madikeri.

I have put travelogues on both these places on Indiamike and have provided contact details for these places also, my travelog also talks of ameneties at these 2 places, budget is also mentioned....so, check which is suitable for u. U may like these.

here is a wonderful one. tom is a great guy, and his wife, daugher, and he are wonderful hosts. his prices are reasonable for his eco-cabins, and just 10 minutes to madikeri (he'll pick you up if you need a lift). expect to pay maybe 300-500 per night, maybe. the place is small, and homely. natural and simple. beautiful and quiet!

(i only reveal this gem because i know few are going to coorg. if it were near the tourist circuit i would never open my mouth!)

palace estate

I stayed at a plantation, "Palace Estate". It's in the lonelyplanet book but the writeup is so small and off the beaten track that it's really quite. I went 4 years ago and they had only about 4 rooms. I went from Mysore to Madikeri and stayed at Hotel Cauvery. the owner can book you with Palace Estate. I took a morning bus to Yavakapudi. it was a bit of a trek (15-20 mins) from the bus stop. i think that you can get taxis or other private transport from Madikeri (i didn't try it). the plantation had a fantastic view from a hilll and was close to tadiyendamol (spelling?), the highest mountain in Karnataka. i planned for 2 days and stayed for 5. all the guests I talked to admitted to staying much longer than they had planned because it was so peaceful. the rooms were nice and the owners were fantastic. they talked about their coorg culture a lot. and the food was fantastic (huge lunch and dinner) included in the price. i forget the exact price.. maybe 300 to 400 rs? comparable to staying at a hotel in a city. have fun.

Mathewu And Prasad, Here's some info that might help you. http://greendreamsholiday.com/homestays.html
9 of us friends stayed at one of the homestays early in december. We had a very nice time, ate lovely food and really got to know the family. I also met the gentelman who runs the company. He is very helpful and made recommendations on all our queries. His numbers are mentioned in the site. You dont pay him, but just the family directly.
Hope it helps!

Stay in Madikeri and from there go to the tourist office and find a homestay on a coffee plantation.
