We were family of 7 people,came across corner stay, through trip advisor and booked 1 deluxe room and 1 luxury room. The owner of the house, ms.vaishnavi was really helpful and humble. The luxury room was very spacious neat, it is a new construction I think. We had a comfortable stay, even wifi facility was available. For food, cook cum caretaker is there. We need to inform prior. But we had only tea there which was really good.
I guess its our own fault for choosing a Corner stay a second tine in spite of a weird service experience at another location in Coimbatore. We somehow gave our experience the benefit of doubt and thought that since each bungalow was independently owned and reviews were pretty good on this location, it would be fine. FYI if I understand it correctly a few home owners who for various reasons have large empty houses they are willig to "rent" out mostly as bed without breakfast appear to have listed themselves under the common brand name of Cornerstay in Coimbatore. The houses are no doubt lovely bungalows in the fairly quiet and green residential areas of Coimbatore and for the most parts tastefully decorated. However while our first experience was lacking only in service this one was a disaster all around.
Started when we arrived at about 3pm in the afternoon with being "greeted" by 2 males who looked a bit dazed and unsure of why we or they were at that place. We were 7 family members and had booked 3 bedrooms all of which were on the 1st floor. There no sitting area or couch upstairs which meant we had to traipse downstairs to use the living room area. We did not explore thw downstairs much and bedrooms while decent could definitely not be classified as deluxe or luxury the tags under which they are advertised and sold. There were only 4 bath towels and we were told that rest were not dry! We did not take very kindly to this piece of info. We were later provided a couple more damp towels. One bathroom seemed to be "luxurious" wih a contraption for several jet showers which we found didnt work neither did any hand shower so be prepared for bathing Indian style our of a bucket of water with a mug.....but wait that is provided there is water!
We had a 7am flight and wokeup before the crack of dawn to find that there was not a single drop of water coming from any taps. The only water coming was in a sink downstairs and after a lot of screaming, raving and ranting the resident "caretaker" began filling buckets and bringing them up. Suffice it to say that in a dusty musty house with no service of any sort to speak of this was the straw that broke the camels back!
I write this as we are still getting ready to leave the place. We have paid half the stay fee and have no intentions of paying the rest under the circumstances. Cornertsay is blacklisted for good in my books!
