Just a tip for anyone traveling,in Kodaikanal there are no autos so please call the hotel you are staying at to take you from the station to the hotel. Its more affordable that way as the cabs available at the bus stop charge more. The rooms are... More

The receptionist Mrs. Shiny gave... More

We stayed in the hotel this november in super delux rooms. Rooms are having good interior decoration but not cleaned for a longer time. Though hotel is located in quite calm place, the garden is not maintained well. Food what served is tasty & served always hot. Overall, we had good time there & enjoyed kodai misty weather.
