Siddhartha C (Guest review on TripAdvisor)
We visited Chikmagalur during the May 1st weekend and put up at the new Forest Homestay at Sakhleshpur. We were immensely happy with our stay there with the vast expanses of fields and forest and not a soul in sight, we possibly couldn’t have asked for a better getaway. If you want to spend your time in the lap of luxury, this is probably not the place for you. However, if you’re looking for some quality time with clean surroundings, great service and some lip-smacking food, you would want to go back again and again. A special mention to Dilip who is an extremely jovial guy and made our stay quite comfortable. He shared some great stories and overall, it was really great. It would be gross injustice not to mention Keerthi (the cook). I will definitely go back again and again for the pork curry and pork barbecue made by Keerthi. It was heaven on a platter. Overall, brilliant service, thanks to Dilip, and brilliant food, thanks to Keerthi – I would rate this place a 9.5 on 10.\ One suggestion – please put up a signboard enabling the visitors to take the right turn to the homestay. Oh and, swimming pool?? I don't think so.. :-)
Our aim is to provide best possible quality of service for affordable price.. Please come and experience, our little service at Gowdahalli Forest Homestay.
