A brilliant place to spend your valuable holidays.. That view!!! A lovely place to stay and enjoy the beauty of Kodai.. The view of the plains is to die for.. Good house-keeping and service. Greenlands experience just adds up to the whole Kodai experience..

Beautiful location. My room had an amazing view of the plains. The night view is absolutely stunning. The misty mornings is something you would want to wake up to. The house keeping and room service is good too. Overall I enjoyed my stay in Greenlands.

Staying here should have been good given that the view from the terrace is lovely, but the service we received was very poor. They forced us to take a double room when there were dorm beds completely free; none of the bed sheets were clean and neither was the floor; they promised us hot water but neither the tap or...

We booked "superdeluxe" rooms and when we saw them we just left. At 1800 Rs each, they were dirty, most of the lights were not working as was the hot water in one of the rooms. The hostel has no common areas and no eating room or restaurant of any kind. They serve food out of pots like a food... More

Greetings from Greenlands! It looks like your first approach to our hotel had gone bad. We apologize for that. With that said, we would also like to make a few clarifications from our behalf :- 1.

We actually didn't know about this place until the taxi driver told us. It was quite basic accommodation but with an incredible view. It definitely takes you away from the hustle and bustle! I would say it's the best accommodation for the price in Kodaikanal. Very happy we ended up here. It was great to get away from it all... More

These are the best views in the entire city. After a nice walk outside of the city downtown, you emerge into Greenlands perched on a cliffside overlooking the plains of Tamil Nadu below. The rooms are nothing amazing, but for the price and location you can't really go wrong.

A good Place to stay. The valley view from the room is beautiful. Choice of food is limited and this works in a youth hostel style. Good Rooms and Toilets. Consider like a home stay accommodation. visit their site http://www.greenlandskodaikanal.com/. See the rooms and book.
