Gowri Nivas is a recommended homestay as per Lonely Planet's guide for Madikeri, and that's how I came to know about the place. I would say this place is worth every rupee you spend. Great cottage surrounded by a lush green garden and beautiful flowers, and right in the middle of the town. Its walking distance from the main market...

We chose a home stay for our Coorg stay and I was apprehensive at first, not knowing what we were getting into. As soon as we got to this place, we were blown away. There were 2 separate cottages which were superb. The family who hosted us were so helpful, friendly made us feel completely at home, let's just say...

My family had a wonderful stay at Gowri Nivas. The location is good (in the heart of town but in a haven of its own!), the room was spotless. The home cooked food was absolutely scrumptious. Muthu and Bopanna regaled us with local tales. Also, took us on a ride through their coffee estate! Their warmth and hospitality was unparalleled....

In the heart of Madikeri, this place is situated very close to the Raja seat (one of the best scenic places in Coorg). The rooms here are very cosy and the facilities offered makes one feel at home. The breakfast offered was delicious with decent variety. The Payasam was the local specialty. Lunch and dinner was also available (with prior...

Great hospitality, the food was outstanding- all the traditional dishes and nothing was repeated. The house is absolutely beautiful very tastefully done. Both Muthu and...

In one word our stay was FABULOUS. What sets Gowri Nivas apart from others is that it's so close to Madikeri town, yet tucked away in a quiet little corner. The Bopanna's go out of their way to make you feel at home. There is no request that is not heeded to. Their warmth makes you feel so much at...

Gowri Nivas is just 8 minutes walk from Madikeri bus depot and right inside the market area. But as you enter Gowri Nivas it feels you are away from the hustle in the outskirts of Coorg. The whole area is covered by plantations which gives you this effect. The homestay is owned and maintained by Bopanna and Muthu who provides...

Gowri Nivas is very centrally located....in the heart of town. The place is green and pretty and has a restful ambiance . The rooms are beautifully done...with the greatest attention to detail. Best of all is the warm hospitality of Muthu , Bopanna and little Aahan ! We really enjoyed our stay here !

It is on a elevated place, so you can see beautiful scenery covered in fog in the morning. We reached in the night around 8PM and it was so dark that we thought it was haunted but was fun. There was borne fire which made the nights even better The in house cooking was delicious and the care taker was...
