Thanks NIP.
I checked it. Was really useful to get the list of hotel & resorts. But still I feel that nothing beats the recomendations from T-BHPians. Also, this would be my first trip to there. So, in case I get some recos here thats first preference, if Not i would go with the site you gave me.
Thanks again.

@Mjothi,

We stayed in Karnataka tourism's Mayura Valley view which is aroun 100 metres from Raja's seat but totally secluded from crowd. It's 999Rs (Including taxes + breakfast+Morning English news paper(?!))) and for extra bed it's 200Rs . We(Me,My mother, wife & kid went to Madikeri + Talacauvery some time back and our stay out here was comfortable!.

Check in & check out time is 12 Noon .

Pros :-

1) Same View from the Restaurant / Room (First FlooR) similar to the view we have from Raja's seat (Not exactly but equivalent thou)
2) Secluded from the crowd
3) Newly constructed and hence rooms are nice, spotless and comfortable for 2 people


Cons:-

1) No Room Service (This is standard across all Mayura hotels I suppose . Atleast that's what I experienced in their Mysore & Madikeri properties)
2)No Much variety in Restaurant


Few Photos of the Hotel + Restaurant :-

Nice pics! Even or maybe especially because of all the mist - it has a special atmosphere!

And thank you, now I have another place to add to my list of places to go to in India!
