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.

We were looking for a stay in Kodaikanal where we could get the feel of the place and I must say this place is the perfect place to chose if you are looking for a calm and a close to nature stay. The hotel does not fall under the category of fancy hotels and people looking for fancy hotels should... More

My review is based on our stay with our pet. We reached Kodaikanal on 13-06-2014 at 8:30 pm with no place to stay. It was 3 of us - Me, my husband and our 2 year old Labrador Retriever - Zoe. It's never easy to find a pet friendly place to stay. A friend sitting in Bangalore found this place... More

It was in last September that we planned for a trip to Kodai and while doing my share of research on good stays in Kodai is when I stumbled up on a review of Dalethorpe. Post the initial screening (which included going through their website and the gallery of course), we added this to the list of probables waiting to... More

Words are short to describe the warm hospitality extended by Shaheed n his fly during our stay with family. Homely food, great location few mins away from lake with a nice backdrop of pine trees. Indoor n outdoor games are there to keep the children busy. Would suggest this hotel for stay with family for sure.
