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 !

We visited Coorg from 18th to the 20th of October2016. We were accommodated in a quaint cottage at Gowri Nivas, which is very close to Rajas seat at Madikeri. The cottage per se has an old world charm about it with all modern amenities. It overlooks a well maintained garden and provides all the privacy needed for a pleasant stay...

Tucked in a quiet corner of Madikeri, Muthu & Bopanna's homestay is aesthetical setup for a comfortable stay in Coorg. There are homestays in the coffee estates and there are homestays in town. If you prefer the latter, this is the place to be in. The rooms are tastefully done up with the modern comforts you might find in the...

It was great to try out all the different local dishes made freshly at their home. They have done up the cottage nicely and they are very clean.
