4.0  Very calm and quiet place...

A very calm and quiet place, surrounded by greenery. Rooms are neat and clean. Food is the typical home made style without much masala and spice. They are very strict with alcohol consumption and the food timings. This is a bit annoying.

4.0  A comfortable stay...

Our guests had a comfortable stay. A very nice homestay. One particular feedback was about the food variety and quality, which could have been better. Please do not treat this as a complaint, just a feedback. We understand that homestays have limited options on the Menu and the food will be homely. Different guests have different cullinary requirements and it is impossible to cater to all. If there is a way in which this can be addressed it would be fantastic

4.0  Very serene environment....

Cottage rooms are really excellent. Very serene environment. Dinner provided by the facility was good at Rs. 150 per head extra. Breakfast @Rs. 100 per head extra is a let down with only two items which can be improved to make it better. Overall very good and can be recommended to others.

Its cosy and ideal for any kind of visitors. Be it couple, family, elders or a group of friends. Dinner was good. Served hot and nice and morning coffee was exceptional. Well, Im recommending this stay for my friends as well. Thanks for good hospitality.

5.0  Neat and clean, tasty food...

Neat and clean, tasty food and overall a great experience. Staff goes out of the way to help you. My mother had an accidental fall after dinner and had a deep cut on her face bleeding profusely. JLR staff came with first aid, helped stop the bleeding and even offered to take us to hospital at Shimoga late in the evening. And to top it all, the elephant interaction the following morning was so enjoyable and helped us completely forget the ordeal of the accident the previous evening. Well forever remember the company of 22 elephants - big and small, tuskers, and the playfulness of the baby elephants at the camp.

3.0  Pleadant getaway indeed....

Place is awesome.!! Its well maintained and very clean.. Staff was very courteous. We really felt it was a home away from home. But the only drawback was the food which was too simple and bland, which is not on par with the whole setup. I would suggest that the menu is varied and the taste upgraded.

4.0  Home stay is just awesome...

The home stay is just awesome which takes you away from all the chaos of the metro life. The cottages are clean, well maintained and very pleasant. The cottages are built amidst green lush on a 12acre plot. The food was Yummilicious, with very good hospitality by Mr & Mrs. Vignesh (the managers of the Homestay). They arranged cabs for the sight seeing & even packed dinner for us since our return train was @ 20.15 and that we could not have our dinner there. On the whole a very pleasant stay.

3.0  Zero satisfaction for money paid. ...

Very upset stay @ Jog Homestay for below reason. Room and toilet was not cleaned on the day of checkin and found lots of dust. The room given to us was stinking and was located next to kitchen and dining hall As the room was located we had sleepless night due vessels sound in kitchen and lound speaking noise in dining hall upto 1 AM. I would request the management not give that particular room to any of your guest as it cause negative feedback for yourself. I heard from cook all guest has same feedback. We got Zero satisfaction for money paid. satisfaction for money paid.

3.0  Nice and the stay was pleasant...

Homestay was nice and the stay was pleasant. It was more like a farm stay, as the place is nestled inside a well maintained farm. I dont have any opinion on the food since i did not get a chance to have the Breakfast or lunch over there. But overall It was nice.

It was a great stay at Jog homestay. We were taken care very well. Suggestions: Small children may require ghee for their food. The food can have more variety with sweet or payasa.
