Hotel Mayura Gerusoppa, a review

The hotel has two blocks, Tunga and Sharavati. Tunga has a total of 10 rooms, 5 of them two-bedded, 2 of them three-bedded and 1 four-bedded, with the other two offering dormitory style accommodation. Sharavati offers more non-AC options. We took 2 rooms in Tunga. As I walked into the room I was bombarded with the sight of Jog Falls. Even with few strings like falls, it looked impressive and the impact was terrific to my mind.

The hotel isn’t a multi storied one and I wondered why they didn’t cash in on the location with a high rise hotel. At a higher floor I could have kept the curtains drawn open and gone to sleep with the sight of Jog Falls reflecting moonlight. With rooms in ground floor and unrestricted entry of tourists around, the area privacy is less.

The quality of the room in terms of neatness was good. The furnishings are modest and basic. In fact the whole complex is neatly maintained. I saw a couple of workers there who were ever alert of the cleanliness of the place.

A restaurant operates little away from the rooms. Don’t expect room service. The hotel also organizes sight-seeing trips for guests, though we didn’t avail it.


The room rates range from Rs.900 for non AC rooms to Rs.2000 for AC rooms in weekend. Their cancellation rules are very strict so plan well before you make reservations.

There is a huge rush to this hotel during monsoons. If you manage to book a stay during the peak season here it will be worth the money and effort!
