I stayed during June 18 to 22 with my wife and 2 years old Kid. I stayed in the Suite room and it was great!. we had very nice time. Food is excellent. Usually, we cant get home-like food in hotels, but here, it's different. Food is awesome, breakfast, lunch and dinner. But, costly still fine. Staff's are very friendly... More

Very good hotel with large play area. Best Suitable one for families with children. Location is fine. Everything is good including food. Don't miss the movie @ mini theatre (generally played every night)

We booked this hotel for our 3 nights/4days (deluxe room) stay especially for their food in kodaikanal.Mostly on the hill station/tourist places we can't expect as such good food (in-terms of flavour) (South Indian Cuisine) but Kodai International will never disappoint you,but a bit pricey. This hotel has a lot of open space for children with a beautiful play garden... More

Stayed there for two nights in April 2015. As per my knowledge the hotel has a huge outdoor which is maintained very well. Rooms are small and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast is more than enough but mainly south Indian. Ample indoor activities to keep the children happy and most of them are free. they have a wonderful collection of birds...

We stayed there for three days last week. It is a very good place for family especially for children. Room is very neat and well maintained. Quality of food was excellent. Near to the town and away from the crowd. Everyone can enjoy the landscaping, indoor games, movies etc. Really worth stay.

The hotel was very nice, the staff was also very pleasant. The hotel offers a lot of games and other facilities to keep you entertained. The cost is not too much. The location is not extremely close to the lake (the main sight in kodai) but its not too far either.

Wonderful hotel. The cottages are nice, made of wood which gives a special flavour. Every cottage has a pvt balcony. The resort houses a small zoo, a beautiful play garden for kids, a private water fall, a nice fruits orchard. The resort has a golf course also, which visitors can use, free of cost.

We stayed at this hotel from 21-24 May. The hotel is not in the city or close to the market place - the lake or Bryant's walk. You will need a car to go to nearby places at most times. The rooms are good but as mentioned by a few, don't go by the pictures on the website. We stayed... More
