Plus points : ---------------- 1. Near to Kodai Lake - may be one KM away. But there is a huge up & down to cross; so elderly people may find it difficult to walk the short distance. 2. Has a small, tidy garden. 3. Has a car park for three cars or so. The owner's house is adjacent and it... More

Prebooking can be done easily, one has to transfer money directly to owners account. Checkin was hassle free, in fact owner allowed us early checkin. I was not happy with the room condition, room was not... More

I have been visiting this hotel since 5 years. I come back for the space, homely food (south Indian cuisine) and prompt attention. The hotel is not far from Kodai Lake, the main attraction. In the peak may season, it is easy to walk from the hotel to the lake an avoid searching for parking space.

We were sure about the place as we had already stayed there 5 years back. The service was good & the place was well maintained. As we went with our 2 children, we took the suite (which had a living room with two bed-rooms, both with attached bathrooms) which was quite spacious. It's a great place for people who would... More
