We stayed during the last week of March. I had my parents with me and was initially bit concerned before the travel, due to their age. However, all my worries were put to rest and they had a wonderful time at Dalethorpe. The rooms are clean, food is ok and location is not far from the lake (1.5 km walking).... More

What can I say!!!! We got upgraded to the cottage since there was a large group coming into the main bungalow. 5/5 for hospitality!! The cottage is a large room with full length windows, a fireplace, large-screen LCD all inside a stone cottage. There is a small lawn outside with a log table set for a relaxing breakfast or lunch.... More

My husband and I spent three nights at DaleThorpe in February 2014. It's a lovely old property with a nice lawn that's far enough away from the main town to be peaceful, but not so far that it's terribly inconvenient. Pros: The property itself is lovely. The manor house is 90 year old, and the independent cottage is 100 years... More

Well this place makes that picture come to life. There is no five star property that will give you the experience that this little... More

Excellence in hospitality industry is all about service delivery. No other place of stay would have given me such a 'Kodaikanal' feel, like I have experienced at Dalethrope. Overall service - Outstanding; Location - superb and Food - Excellent. Thank you Shaheed and Team for operating and maintaining such a piece of heritage in a modest way. All I can... More
