    I would like to get some help from the members of this travel forum to find a good 3 star hotel in Coorg.

    I will be going to Coorg with my family consisting of my wife, mother in law, father in law and three kids aged between 8 year and 15 years.

    I would like to get a hotel where there is some sitting space like a garden or something.

    Overview

    Coorg is a large district separated into various towns, set amidst picturesque coffee estates. Historically, Coorg, also known as Kodagu, was first ruled over by the Kodavas, an indigenous tribe to the region. During the medieval times, the Haleri dynasty took control of the then Coorg which was repeatedly attacked by Mysore rulers, the father and son tandem of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan. Fast forward to today, Coorg is one of the most famous hill stations of Karnataka. It attracts tourists from near and far because of its soothing climate, aromatic coffee smells and overall serenity. In this guide, we would highlight the best three-star properties in the district, including their location, nightly rates and other vital information you might need about them.

    Conclusion

    This ends our guide on the best three-star properties in Coorg. As you can see, there are many three-star properties in the centre of the district, which is Madikeri. Ideally, these hotels are your best options, as they are situated in the commercial areas or others, at least near the commercial areas. But for some tourists, they would rather stay in the more serene areas that's why this list also included properties that are out of the centre of the district. These areas include Virajpet, Galibeedu, Pollibetta, Kakkabe and Gonikoppal. So you can take your pick accordingly, assessing your own interests and goals for the trip.

    I hope this helps you!:)
