Good location, swift service, courteous staff and nice and clean rooms. nearby to the lake, they book vehicle on request. Breakfast is very good, though there is variety in the dinner, the taste is just average. Also the dining hall is not that great, it has normal plastic chairs and tables, can upgrade/renovate to make it more classy.

More costlier than worth..rooms were not cleaned daily..they charge heavily for kids food also..money minded....if you book site seeing through hotel, they charge more.. its almost double than outside..they ask for correct check-out time but they have not given hotel at correct check-in time...far from busstand.. going and coming from hotel itself costs 150/- or more...overall not a great experience...

I was with my family in Kodai from 13th May to 17th May. For those who are visiting Kodai to experience nature's beauty and calm and a siren environment, Hotel Jai is a perfect destination. 10 mins away from the hustle and bustle of Kodai city, this hotel truly stands by its tagline "luxury made affordable". Staff in hotel especially... More

In those days it was like a family home, a home away from home,with limited facilities, clean,... More

I booked this hotel based on TA feedback and overall this was a good choice. The Hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle of main Kodai and was peaceful and quiet. The room we took - Family Triple - was large and faced the front. It was fairly well equipped. There is also ample parking area. The staff... More
