Somebody was mentioning Penukonda. Any name will be helpful.

You are right. The Reliance A1 dhaba is closed, though the petrol bunk is operational. We had breakfast at CCD just after the Kasepalli toll gate, and the AC ambience was just what we needed. The restrooms were well-maintained. However, the total time taken was 45 minutes, so one needs to keep that in mind if in a hurry. Blu Moon was equally slow for serving idlies when we last visited a couple of years ago. For those in a hurry, there is Dolphin restaurant on the highway a couple of kms before Anantapur on the BLR HYD highway. Looked decent and saw a few vehicles parked outside it. But we passed that spot at around 730 am, and that was too early for us.

Guys I will be returning alone to Hyderabad on the 27th April after dropping off my wife and kid at my brother-in-law's house in Bangalore.
If anyone needs a ride they are most welcome.
The starting point will be ITPL. The starting time is adjustable (to a degree, I would prefer to reach Hyderabad before 7 pm).
PM me if interested.

Hello,

I'm driving down to Bangalore (then onwards to Coonoor) next week.

Since I will be starting in the evening (~6pm) from HYD, and don't want to drive through the night, wanted to check if there are any decent hotels around midway?

Since it will be just to sleep and shower, I would be happy with inexpensive options (<2k) that are clean and have hot water.

Thanks in advance :-)

Hotel Blue Moon has option to stay. This is near anantapur and on the highway itself.

In Kurnool, Hotel Suraj Grand is also another option, almost right next to the highway. At a price similar to Blue Moon, you will get much better room and food. I have stayed in both.

I had a good experience in Hotel Suraj during couple of my trips. This is probably the only best option too after/before Hyderabad.

Thanks a ton guys. Though unfortunately I discovered yesterday that my clutch is not up to the trip (will post on that soon)! I have decided to fly down to Bangalore and rent a self-drive car from there.

Midnight cheating at Amakthadu, NHAI toll plaza, Bangalore-Hyderabad Highway, NH 44

Trip Detail: Bangalore - Hyderabad
Date - 3rd May 2019
Incident Time: 00:17:42, 4th May 2019

Beware of this possible fraud on this stretch. For more details please read my public post at the below link:

Anyone faced similar issues at any of the toll plaza on this stretch ? May be its worth mentioning here.

It used to be a bliss driving on the Bangalore - Hyderabad highway, but not the same now. Its filled with speed-breakers and many uneven stretches. During the return I counted around 35 speed breakers. And these speed breakers doesn't have any standards, they are of various sizes. There was one Dzire which got rear ended by a bus when he braked at the last moment. Overall, it was not as enjoyable as before.

I don't recollect where I read but someone shared that post on Facebook where a driver had counted these speedbreakers and it was certainly way above what it used to be on this stretch.

Despite of the order by Road Ministry, the norms are flouted. The lack of proper entry-exit roads, lack of service roads and the lack of vision by the highway contractors is leading to all these - Accidents invariably demand placement of speedbreakers in our country .

I think it was good during our Kurnool drive, two years back. Most of these speed breakers have come post that.


At some tolls, there are speed breakers after you exit the toll

When traveling from Hyderabad till Dhone there are no speed breakers.
Dhone bypass has speed breakers.
About 30kms before Gooty huge speed breaker.
The worst ones are at the Garladene town bypass.
Even the Kia motors plant after Ammavaripalli village has speed breakers
