We stayed here for 3 nights and would recommend people to stay here. The villa is a heritage feel and the best part is Shahids hospitality. Keep up the good work guys, please do not miss Bonfire and Barbecue.

Dalethorpe!! An excellent place to stay in kodaikanal as it's close to the city as well as the lake. Mr.Shahid makes an excellent host as he is very helpful and makes one feel at home. I'd recommend kodai tourists to stay at dalethorpe as everything about that place including room, food , cleanliness, service and pricing is fantastic!!
