We stayed there for a couple of days and found the hotel to be good in terms of cleanliness, cordial staff and vicinity to couple of attractions in Kodai at walking distance. Moreover, its worth the amount charged for the stay.

Room size is relatively small compared to other places I have stayed. 2. Food quality is just OK, nothing to write home about. 3. Bed size can be quite demanding for two... More
