We went as a group of 7 and took the 4 rooms at the back of the main building.(2 standard and 2 deluxe). The host Shahid was informative and easy to deal with when I contacted him over the phone for reservation.He is a good host as he always asked if we needed anything. However the property itself is one... More

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!!

I am a laid back person who doesn't share feedback/ reviews that often. This time I have decided to share my feedback as this is my 2nd stay in Dalethorpe and it was truly "Fantastic". It’s a clean and calm place with tasty food served. If you are planning to visit Kodai to relax, enjoy your time with your family... More

Was quite surprised to see and experience on my own that this type of Homestay would actually make my family trip to the hill station more enjoyable. Thanks to Mr. Shaheed, Mr. Thanvir and the entire crew for such a wonderful experience. Dalethorpe home-stay is an awesome place to stay for an expat family like me to spend time and... More

Dale Thorpe homestay is slightly misleading. Firstly, it isn't a 'home stay', where you're staying with a gracious owner- it is a rather tacky bed and breakfast joint. That stated, a person begins to realize that it is rather shoddily managed for a bed-breakfast place, and priced steeply for that level, with a paucity of options and sights around you... More

Thanks mr.shaheed & his team for their hospitality & customization to our needs. Stayed during 2013 November. Definitely a place to stay. The property is a prime location but there is silence & serenity. Pls do plan & book in advance. Thanks dalethorpe

Very nice place at good location. Neat and clean rooms with good care. The team Sahid, Dhanvir, Joseph (The cook) all are great. We a group of 12 people stayed for 4 days and it was memorable stay. Great service - keep it up Sahid.

We were 9 adults and 2 kids. We found it to be just theright place to stay. Almost in the heart of Kodai but still felt like we were far away from the hustle and bustle. Good place for kids to break free and the adults to let their hair down. Care taker, Shaheed was very genial and helpful. He... More

Good place for a family - the experience was more like a home stay. My kid loved the open space surrounding the property. The room was clean, the care taker was very polite. The food was a bit costly but generally tasty except one night when it was just ok.
