This trip was planned last minute. If you have time ( planned in advance and booked here) and money to spend, check out this place for at least one night - Jungle Beats.
We left from Bangalore on a Wednesday night for Wayanad. It is a 6 hour journey. We reached around 5 : 30 am on Thursday. Luckily, our hotel was just 350 meters away from the bus stop.
We stayed at iCon Residency for INR 550 per night
We booked hotels and buses ( INR 1500 both the ways) on Goibibo.
Our day one started at 7 am on the same day. We spotted an auto guy right near the bus stop. He charged us INR 1500, 1600 AND 1800 for day 1, 2 and 3 respectively. We also had to pay for his food. We were fine with it initially but later on it added a lot to our expenses. So its better you clarify with the drivers beforehand only
